I grabbed the book, Semi-Sweet by Roisin Meaney when Borders was going out of business and it was 80% off. I do judge new books by their cover unless they come well recommended and so far that system has worked out for me.
This novel appealed to me for a couple reasons- the title, the price, the fact that cupcakes were involved, and the main character was named Hannah Robinson (which is the name of a friend of mine). Considering these were the motivators for my purchase, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
The entire book rotates through a few main characters' love lives and everything is somehow interconnected. The concept reminded me a lot of the movie, Love Actually, which I also liked.
That's all I'm going to share for now... to be honest, I just wanted to get some sort of post up for you guys and figured committing to this (since it was recent) was a good way to get back on track. Let me know if you are really interested in more about the book though- I'd be happy to share.
