Waiting on Wednesday: The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski

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
Pages: 352
Genre: Realistic fiction
Audience: YA

From Goodreads:
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!

  1. Maybe I should take a leaf out of your book. I read fantasies specifically for the reason you don't pick them first. :-P

    Come see what I'm waiting for!
