Throwback Thursday #81 - Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while which looks at those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves that we haven't got round to reading yet..

Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe - Jenny Colgan
Publisher: Little Brown
Issy Randall can bake. No, more than that – Issy can create stunning, mouth-wateringly divine cakes. After a childhood spent in her beloved Grampa Joe’s bakery she has undoubtedly inherited his talent. So when she’s made redundant from her safe but dull City job, Issy decides to seize the moment and open up her own café. It should be a piece of cake, right?
Wrong. As her friends point out, she has trouble remembering where she left her house keys, let alone trying to run her own business. But Issy is determined. Armed with recipes posted to her from Grampa, and with her local bank manager fighting her corner, Issy attempts to prove everyone wrong. Following your dreams is never easy and this is no exception. Can Issy do it?

I haven't read any chick-lit for AGES!! This looks like a fun, light read with plenty if yummy food descriptions...what's not to like..? It has been a long time since I read any of this light stories - I hope I haven't moved out of this genre entirely!

Are there any genres you haven't read in a while...?


  1. This does sound like a fun chick-lit. I do think I also need to pick one up soon. :) I do think that is the genre I haven't read in a bit as well. :D

  2. This sounds like a great read! Chick-lit is definitely something I haven't picked up in a while! I know this book especially would make me crave cake.
