Waiting on Wednesday: Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

Waiting on Wednesday is the awesome meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to highlight tantalizing upcoming books.  This week, I'm looking forward to:

by Sarah Ockler
January 3, 2012

Once upon a time, Hudson knew exactly what her future looked like. Then a betrayal changed her life, and knocked her dreams to the ground. Now she’s a girl who doesn’t believe in second chances... a girl who stays under the radar by baking cupcakes at her mom’s diner and obsessing over what might have been.

So when things start looking up and she has another shot at her dreams, Hudson is equal parts hopeful and terrified. Of course, this is also the moment a cute, sweet guy walks into her life...and starts serving up some seriously mixed signals. She’s got a lot on her plate, and for a girl who’s been burned before, risking it all is easier said than done.

It’s time for Hudson to ask herself what she really wants, and how much she’s willing to sacrifice to get it. Because in a place where opportunities are fleeting, she knows this chance may very well be her last.... 

 How awesome is this!  The excellent Sarah Ockler and friends decided that they'd give us her new book a full six months early!  I adored the old title The Language of Impossible Dreams, but the title/cover combination here works really well too.

It's a book about cupcakes and second changes and getting back up after failure, and I just can't wait.  I wasn't a huge fan of Fixing Delilah, but I loved Twenty Boy Summer, and any new book by Sarah Ockler is worth an immediate read.  ...also her blog mentioned something about a hockey boy, and you all know how I feel about hockey (hint: sliiiiight obsession).

What books are you waiting for this Wednesday?

    I am so excited Sarah Ockler has a new book!!!! I loved Twenty Boy Summer--I'm re-reading it right now, actually--and I loved Fixing Delilah (but Twenty Boy Summer was definitely better). I can't wait for Bittersweet. Great title, cute cover, and it's Sarah freaking Ockler. Can't go wrong!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I read and adore each one.
