  1. I love the title "The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake" :D Makes me want to read it. Have you read it? Is it any good?

    It's too bad I've decided that "Prom & Prejudice" was going to be the one "big kids" book I was going to read this year XD

  2. Me too! I actually checked out "The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake" before it won an award, and it is definitely on my to read list! Thanks for sharing!
