I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.


Bittersweet - Sarah Ockler I bought this on a whim, because I recognized the cover for one of my YA challenges. The description was pretty vague (the first one, anyway) and after I had bought it I had started to have buyers remorse. But luckily, I gave it a shot, although it was several days later. And I really enjoyed it. But I have to admit, I wouldn't have hesitated if I had read the more detailed description.

This was a tough read. I really did feel for Hudson in this. She's in a difficult spot. She struggles with a lot of things and she feels real. She's far from perfect. And that's what I like about her. Sometimes I get a little frustrated when authors don't let their characters show their vulnerability. But Ockler isn't afraid to show her characters weakness. Bittersweet shines because of it.

I have been eying other Sarah Ockler books. After this one, I'm definitely adding her other books to my wishlist.
