Donut Days


Donut Days
by Lara Zielin

Summary taken from goodreads.com:

Emma has a lot going on. Her best friend’s not speaking to her, a boy she’s known all her life is suddenly smokin’ hot and in love with her, and oh yes, her evangelical minister parents may lose their church, especially if her mother keeps giving sermons saying Adam was a hermaphrodite.

But this weekend Emma’s only focused on Crispy Dream, a hot new donut franchise opening in town, where Harley bikers and Frodo wannabes camp out waiting to be the first ones served. Writing the best feature story on the camp for the local paper might just win Emma a scholarship to attend a non- Christian college. But soon enough Emma finds the donut camp isn’t quite the perfect escape from all her troubles at Living Word Redeemer.


I really ate this book up. The writing was great, the plot was both interesting AND funny.. and c'mon look at those yummy donuts. This is one of those feel-good types of books, that has enough drama to keep you wanting more, but really just makes you go "wow, that was good". It's hard for me to write this review, because I really just liked it. Might've been my mood for it or the great writing.. but definitely a worthwhile read.

5/5 Roses

  21. Love the review! This sounds great, it's on my list. The only problem is it will most likely cause me to indulge on donuts while reading. You cannot read a Donut titled book, with a donut cover and donuts mentioned throughout without going crazy and eating one!
