Book Review: There’s More To Life Than Cupcakes




Ellie who is the main character in this book is happily married and torn between impending  motherhood. She listens to the advice of friends about the situation as well as the readers of her blog on the subject.

While deciding on this life changing decision she takes a baking class as a favor for her best friend Lydia. Along the way she learns a lot about herself in the process. 


I enjoyed a lot of things about this book. The aspect of baking in this book really intrigued me since baking is one of my favorite things to do during my free time. I liked taking the journey with Ellie through the baking class and how she learned a lot about herself and how she interacts with others through the process.

The book starts off a little slow with the introduction of several characters that add to the charm of the book. Ellie is going through self discovery in this book with a career at a magazine and as a married woman. She feels the pressure of family and friends to have a baby.

This book is an easy read and has a comical side to it. It has the elements of romance as well as comedy. This will keep you interested in the storyline throughout the book.

As woman there are many pressures on us of what is expected for our lives to be like. Eliie has to decided if she is going to live her life for her or for others. 

The book can be found here on Amazon. 


** I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. **


Happy Reading and Writing,
