Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming titles you're looking forward to reading.
This week's title I'm awaiting is:
The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski
Publish Date: May 10, 2011 by Egmont
Genre: Realistic fiction
In the world of Sheridan Wells, life is perfect when she's decorating a cake. Unfortunately everything else is a complete mess: her mom ran off years ago, her dad is more interested in his restaurant, and the idea of a boyfriend is laughable.
But Sheridan is convinced finding her mom will solve all her problems - only her dad's about to get a cooking show in New York, which means her dream of a perfect family will be dashed.
Using just the right amount of romance, family drama, and cute boys, The Sweetest Thing will entice fans with its perfect mixture of girl-friendly ingredients.
Why I'm eagerly awaiting this book's publication:
Most people seem to swoon over paranormal romance and dystopia lately. My first love is and always has been realistic fiction. I just love reading stories about things that could actually happen in real life because that way I don't pine for something that can't ever happen (ever being able to go to Hogwart's or fall in love with a sparkly vampire for instance).
This book's synopsis sounds like it's right up my alley. It seems like there will be quite a bit of food-related plot lines, which is totally appealing to me - I am the Foodie Bibliophile afterall! :o) Plus, I'm one who likes a good chick-lit story. I mean, food and chick-lit? Sounds like the perfect lazy-day read to me!
