Review: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender

Review: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender

May 22, 2017 Review 2

It’s hard to work up an appetite when sandwiches just want you to love them, cookies taste like anger, and your mom’s food tastes hollow. In THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE, Rose Edelstein would have had a very normal, very dull life if it wasn’t for one thing: she can taste emotion in food. She first notices this power when tasting her mother’s lemon cake, realizing how dissatisfied her mother felt about their family. From then on, Rose has a constant battle with food, preferring mass-produced, machine-made food over handmade meals.

I love fairy tale retellings, and I especially love retellings of Beauty and the Beast, and so I was primed to fall in love with HUNTED from the very start. With its beautiful cover and intriguing description, I was so excited to read it – and luckily, HUNTED did not disappoint.

Martians Abroad has a great premise. Kids who were born and grew up on Mars coming to Earth for school. Boarding school stories are a little over done, but they can still turn out to be great. However, as I started to read Martians Abroad I realized that a lot of the problem with the story was the original premise.

Well, THE EDGE OF EVERYTHING was nothing like what I expected it to be. There was a lot of hype surrounding this book, and I was really excited to read it. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations of what it should have been, based on all the praise it had.
