Review: The Day I Shot Cupid by Jennifer Love Hewitt


The Day I Shot Cupid; Hello, My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I’m a Love-aholic
by Jennifer Love Hewitt
Publisher:  Voice
Published:  March 23rd 2010

Hardcover, 208 pages

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 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. First, we have to shoot Cupid. We have to believe that happily-ever-after is hard work–it’s not all flowers and symphonies and floating hearts.

Wise and wry and refreshingly honest, Hewitt talks about how to pick the right guy and how to know when to let the wrong ones go free, and she offers some surprising truths about the opposite sex

From twenty things to do after a breakup, to ten things to do before a date, to the perils of text flirting (Note: You are waiting. By the phone. For his response.), Hewitt uses stories and dating secrets to illustrate the idiotic, romantic, crazy, depressing, hilarious, awkward, glorious moments we all experience in relationships. 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.

This was absolutely a very cute book!  Also, a must-read for any woman who has been in a relationship (even if they are currently in one).  Jennifer Love Hewitt uses her personal experiences from her MANY publicised relationships with men to shed a little light on all the intricacies of dating, all the good stuff and bad stuff, and even the ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ stuff in relationships.  This does not mean that JLH is telling you “HOW IT IS” and that there is no other way, she is just giving her own little perspective.

In the end this book is meant to make you feel better about your past relationships, even if they went horribly wrong, because everyone goes through them.  There is even a part where she lets a man speak for himself (Jammie Kennedy – even though they were no longer together when this book came out).  One of the important things to take from this book is that everyone is different, including men.  Also, we are not alone.  Plain and simple.  Throughout her advice and perspective, JLH also provides little tips that she found successful, while stating that these might not work for everyone.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, quick, heartfelt read with no lies written in the pages.
