The Day I Shot Cupid by Jennifer Love Hewitt

The Day I Shot Cupid by Jennifer Love Hewitt is a witty account of all of the good and bad things we as women go through with dating. Taken from someone who knows a thing or two about dating, Love is able to give a funny and refreshing take on the whole self-help book genre on relationships and flip it on its head.

Book Description
“For any woman who has ever bought a self-help book and wondered why she bothered.

(P.S. Now that I know he’s just not that into me, where do I go from there? Yeah, thanks for that advice.)

Jennifer Love Hewitt is a self-proclaimed “love-aholic” and a hopeless romantic (her middle name is Love, after all!). She has been lucky and unlucky in love, and lived to tell—and she’s done it all in the spotlight. Much has been written about her love life—some true, most made up to sell magazines. Now Hewitt shares the real story of what she’s learned navigating the dangerous dating waters.

In The Day I Shot Cupid, Hewitt offers her hard-won wisdom and tells us how to embrace love with both feet on the ground. Funny, quirky, and empowering, The Day I Shot Cupid deserves a place on every woman’s nightstand, bookshelf, or coffee table, or tucked inside her oversized designer handbag.” – The Day I Shot Cupid

My Thoughts
The Day I Shot Cupid is a very witty and tell it like it is kind of self-help book on relationships. Honestly, I was quite surprised by this. I have never been a big Jennifer Love Hewitt fan. Sure, I’ve seen some shows she has been in, but she was never on my favorite list. If I had known she had this kind of a personality before, I would have added her to my favorites list much sooner!

The Day I Shot Cupid gives funny (and also quite helpful) advice on what you should notice when you first meet a guy, what to do before a date (and what not to do), things you shouldn’t say on a date, a workout plan, and much more.

This is a great book for all women that are either in need of some romance advice, or perhaps need a good laugh about it all. I highly recommend it. It is an easy read, and feels like Love is right there with you drinking a margarita while dishing about past relationships.
