reviewed She's Gone Country. August 15, 2010
She's Gone Country
This is the second book I have read by Jane Porter. One of the reasons I keep trying to read her books is that a) she writes chick lit and b) so many seem to love her stuff.    Unfortunately, …
Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude
I have been doing yoga for about a year now and I have found it absolutely fascinating to discover just how people actually "get into" the practice.    This is why I was so psyched …
What Color Is Your Parachute? for Retirement,

reviewed Rocky Road. August 08, 2010
Rocky Road
I don't read alot of middle grade books, but, for some reason, both the cover and the storyline of this one called to me.    Fortunately, I was not disappointed, as author Kent has …
reviewed Stolen Child. August 08, 2010
Stolen Child
To be completely honest, Stolen Child is not usually my type of read- however, I found the storyline compelling enough to attempt to read the book and I am so happy that I did.    Stolen …

Not Ready for Mom Jeans
Firstly, I have to say that I loved the cover of this one! Not Ready for Mom Jeans is a wonderful addition to the chick lit genre - my favorite!    In this sequel, we find the main …

Overexposed: A Novel
I have read everything that Susan Shapiro has written, in fact, I have, in some cases, reread her stuff more than once.    If you are picking up a book writtebn by this author, then …
Personally I Blame My Fairy Godmother
Personally I Blame my Fairy Godmother is chick lit at its best - and believe me, I am extremely picky about my "chick lit" :)    The main character Jessie is incredibly likeable and …
reviewed Freak Magnet. August 08, 2010
Freak Magnet
Freak Magnet was absolutely not what I expected and I am thrilled by this. At first, I thought this would be about a girl who somehow keeps attracting weird guys. While this would have been a witty story, …
reviewed Ice Cold: A Rizzoli & Isles Novel. August 08, 2010
Ice Cold: A Rizzoli & Isles Novel
For me, reading anything by this author is always a bit of a hit/miss situation. Although, in most cases, the author is great at creating plotlines that have kept me engaged and, more importantly, guessing …
The Lighter Side of Life and Death
I have enjoyed every book written by this author and The Lighter Side of Life and Death is another winning book!    Firstly, I want to encourage this great Canadian author - but more …
reviewed Single in the City. August 04, 2010
Single in the City
Single in the City is a wonderful chick lit read.    I loved the premise of this book - the main character Hannah doesn't really see a future for herself in the US, so she decides …
reviewed Falling Is Like This. August 04, 2010
Falling Is Like This
Falling is Like This is kind of my fantasy book - with a main character who gets to live out a fantasy that almost every young woman (including myself)has had at one time or another in their lives - what …
Addict at Ten: How I Overcame Addiction, Poverty,
I read alot of books on addiction and recovery and I have to say that this one is one of the scariest I have ever read.    From the first word - you get a total and complete sense …
reviewed Lips Unsealed: A Memoir. August 04, 2010
Lips Unsealed: A Memoir
As I read this book, two things came to mind - 1) I love that Carlisle was sooooo honest in her memoir and 2) Wow! I have lived a sheltered life.    Strangely enough, I discovered …
reviewed Beach Week: A Novel. August 04, 2010
Beach Week: A Novel
First off, I have to say that Beach Week was NOT really what I thought it would be and that is okay.    However, I have mixed feelings about this novel. While I thought the premise …
The Great Reflation: How Investors Can Profit From
While I am not a total beginner, when it comes to investments, I enjoy reading books that are easy to read and that explain the financial situation/crisis in a clear and precise manner - I hate reading …
My Fair Lazy: One Reality Television Addict's
I am a lover of chick lit and I really, really love memoirs that are written with a funny twist by female authors - which, of course, means that I should have loved ANYTHING by Jen Lancaster.    Actua …
Hangman: A Decker/Lazarus Novel
**************SPOILER ALERT*********************   I have basically read all of Faye Kellerman's books and she is traditionally "hit or miss" with me, although I quite enjoyed her last book. …

reviewed The Insider. August 01, 2010
The Insider
Will Connelly, the main character, in The Insider is one of my new favorite characters. He is a lawyer who is about to have a very bad day - being caught between what he should do and what he should not …
Lay the Favorite: A Memoir of Gambling
I was a bit disappointed by Lay the Favorite - although I think it is mainly my fault. For some reason, I thought this book was about gambling addiction - and, while the main author does walk down a slippery …
reviewed Hancock Park: A Novel. July 31, 2010
Hancock Park: A Novel
I admire anyone who can sit down and write a novel. I, myself, have read thousands and thousands of books and would never feel confident enough to do so. Author Kaplan deserves kudos for doing just this!    …
reviewed Mother of the Bride. July 31, 2010
Mother of the Bride
Okay, I have to say that Mother of the Bride is THE perfect chick lit novel - I loved it.    The entire premise is based on a wedding - which may or may not happen actually - and this …
reviewed The Capitol Game. July 30, 2010
The Capitol Game
The Capitol Game is another wonderful read from Brian Haig.     Although, for the most part, I have disconnected from thrillers, mainly because they are all the same, in my opinion, …
reviewed High Before Homeroom. July 27, 2010
High Before Homeroom
High Before Homeroom is either an extremely brilliant book or a highly dismissive one - and I am not sure what I think exactly.    The main character feels neglected by his mom and …
Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker
Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker is one of those books - kind of chick lit -but in real life. In fact, I kept forgetting that this book was a "true" story instead of a novel.    Author …
Love, Sex & Deception: The Chronicles of Online
I found myself immediately drawn into the writing, as well as the stories presented in Love, Sex & Deception - about online dating. Who knew that this type of book would actually ever exist? especially …
reviewed Nice and Mean. July 27, 2010
Nice and Mean
I don't normally read middle grade books - I find them, as a rule, a tad too simplistic, however, Nice and Mean can definitely be considered the exception to this rule.    The author …
reviewed The Recessionistas. July 27, 2010
The Recessionistas
Okay, I will own up here and say that The Recessionistas is one of those books that totally frustrated me. While the entire premise was interesting - "power couples" with way too much money and very little …
reviewed This Gorgeous Game. July 20, 2010
This Gorgeous Game
This Gorgeous Game is a powerful, scary and all too realistic book about power, manipulation and fear.    Olivia, the main character is a good catholic girl - who believes that she …
reviewed How To Make A Bird. July 18, 2010
How To Make A Bird
How To Make A Bird truly meets my definition of a coming of age book for YA.    The novel is ladden with "moments" that are geared towards helping the main character better understand …
Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man: A Memoir
I had heard some wonderful things about this book and, of course, because I am a fan of addiction/recovery books I was really looking forward to reading this one.    Unfortunately, …
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else

reviewed They're Watching. July 06, 2010
They're Watching
I have stopped reading thrillers, with a few exceptions and author Gregg Hurwitz falls squarely in those "exceptions".    It seems as though each and every novel he has ever written …
It Ain't Just The Size
I have to be honest and say that I really did not know what to expect when I started to read this book. The title could lead to believe that the play/book would be all about sex and, while this book is …
An Ideal Wife: A Novel
Okay, I have read ALL of Gemma Townley's books and I have to say that I think it is way time to retire this particular series, not to mention the main character.    My love for these …
Not That Kind of Girl: A Memoir
I have to say that I basically devoured Not that Kind of Girl in two days! That is how good and engaging this memoir is.    Carlene Bauer writes about a subject matter that is timely …
Promises to Keep: A Novel
I have read each and every Jane Green book ever written - way before it was "fashionable" to read her books and I think this is the problem.    Green started her writing career with …
