There's More to Life Than Cupcakes

There's More to Life Than Cupcakes - Poppy Dolan can actually relate to Ellie a tiny bit. I feel like everyone I know is having babies. 2 of my closest friends have babies, my brother, who is 2 and a half years younger than me, had a baby almost 2 years ago, and my brother who is 4 years younger than me has just told me his girlfriend is pregnant. So I recently had a little I’m getting broody moment. My solution? I decided to go to the pub and have a large drink because you can’t do that when your preggers.

I feel very much the same way Ellie does babies are cute, cuddly and I don’t mind looking after one for like half an hour, but I don’t want to give up the drinking and the partying and the lazing around on a Sunday because you have nothing else to do. Not just yet anyway.

I really like Ellie. She is definately someone I would be able to be friends with, and not onl because she bakes really good cakes.

Pete is an excellent husband. He’s a really kind and caring person. He would do absolutely anything to make Ellie happy.

I loved all the characters in this book her bestie Lyds, who has been there through everything. Her new baking friends Hannah and Joe, their classes sounded like so much fun. Jules, both sets of parents, all the brothers on both sides, Skye her sister in law. I don’t think there was one person I didn’t like. Even the potato guy was great.

This book was Chicklit at it’s best, and fantastic book that will have you laughing and crying and then wanting to bake.
