How to Eat a Cupcake by Meg Donohue
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a sweet little bubble-gummy book but I'm so glad I read it. It's about friends, friends who fall out and come back together- those are the best types of friends. Friends who fight and love like sisters. And eat lots of delicious cupcakes in between. I got this book cause it was on sale for super cheap at BN online and it just sounded fun. I've always liked books with food in the title [b:I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti|5996317|I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti|Giulia Melucci|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1344271778s/5996317.jpg|6170613] and [b:The Toaster Broke So We're Getting Married|6077049|The Toaster Broke So We're Getting Married|Pamela Holm|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347480736s/6077049.jpg|6253646] are two other cheapie books I got that I ended up loving too.
So How to Eat a Cupcake- first thing you do is take off the paper wrapper. This story is written from two points of view Annie's & Julia's. Each chapter alternates back and forth. These are the two childhood friends reunited. Both are dealing with their own pasts and moving forward and decide to open a cupcakery together. At the beginning they're more frenemies than friends but they make up for it quickly.
Maybe because I'm homesick, maybe because I miss my friends but this book just made me sigh and say "ahhh" a lot. Nothing was too shocking, no one got irreparably hurt and it was a super quick read. It's just a nice feel good book and a great book to kick off the summer with. So yay.

Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The 13th book I finished in 2013 was also the 13th and final book in the Sookie Stackhouse series! Whoop!
Was it the best book ever written? No. Was it the best book in the series? Hell no. Was it still a good and satisfying ending o the series? Yes. What do you expect something Sookie changing forever? No. It wrapped everything up. Brought back some characters we hadn't seen in a while. And like all other Sookie books what you thought was the "main" mystery gives you a surprise twist at the end.
If you didn't guess she'd end up with Sam after the end of the previous book then you do not know our girl Sookie. She used the CD on him, of course that means he was her "true love" and HEA. There wasn't enough Jason in this book for my taste, it's the end of the frickin' series give us more Jason time. So glad to see Quinn back! He was always one of my fave supes and Alcide, Amelia, and Bob.
It was fine, it was a good logical ending to this series. She probably could have kept it going longer, but it wouldn't have been as satisfying. So good job.
