All We Ever Wanted Was Everything - Janelle Brown
City of Theives - David Benioff
Breaking Her Fall - Stephen Goodwin
The Breakdown Lane - Jacquelyn Mitchard
Barefoot - Elin Hilderbrand
The Gravediggers Dughter - Joyce Carol Oates
The Friday Night Knitting Club - Kate Jacobs
Pretty in Plaid - Jen Lancaster
The worst part is that we're going to have to stop at a book store at some point...
All We Ever Wanted Was Everything - Janelle Brown -- I could not stand any of the three protagonists but finished the book. The good thing was that I believed the author didn't like them much either.
City of Theives - David Benioff -- This was a recommendation from the woman at Borders after we stood around and talked about books for about 15 minutes. This is a pretty magical book and have recommended it to many people. I hope the Beav will read it at some point because I want to talk to people about it.
Breaking Her Fall - Stephen Goodwin -- Decent book, found some errors in consistency. It's kind of a dude book.
The Breakdown Lane - Jacquelyn Mitchard -- Enjoyed this more than Breaking Her Fall probably due to being able to relate to the narrator better. As a matter of fact, I pictured her as the mother of a friend from high school. Interesting glimpse into the scary world of Multiple Sclerosis.
Barefoot - Elin Hilderbrand -- FABULOUS beach read. I enjoyed this a lot. It's fluffy but well written and interesting.
Pretty in Plaid - Jen Lancaster -- One of her best. Such a Pretty Fat wasn't her best work so I was worried Lancaster was churning these out faster than her talent allowed but this was a really honest read.
I didn't make it to the other two.
Right now I'm reading the new Sedaris When You Are Engulfed In Flames and I'm enjoying it so far. It's difficult not to enjoy Sedaris.
