As many of you know, I got a Nook for Hanukkah two years ago. Around the same time last year, I was given an iPad. It felt selfish to keep two eReaders so I gave Perri the Nook and I downloaded Nook for iPad, which I've gotten quite a lot of use out of. I always like to tell people what I'm reading and ask for recommendations in return. Maybe we can start a JGIWC book club?
Here's what I've read recently...
Skinny by Diana Spechler
The author is actually a friend of mine, and I'm just so proud of her. This book is clever and fresh and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan
While I think JCS is a great writer, I have to say that I didn't love this book, and I didn't love her first one, Commencement, either. While I think she developed the characters incredibly well, I find her stories to be very depressing and I left this book feeling a little empty.
Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
This is the final installment of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants set. This book was a tearjerker - I rarely cry while reading, but this did me in. It was tough to read at times but I loved the movies and I think it's always nice to see how something ends.
Being Kendra: Cribs, Cocktails, and Getting my Sexy Back by Kendra Wilkinson
I couldn't not read this. We all know she's my favorite Playboy bunny and while this is far from a literary breakthrough, her honesty is refreshing and I love learning about her life.
Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close
If you feel like all of your friends are getting married and all you're getting is left in the dust, please read this book. If you are in your twenties and live in New York City, please read this book. Hell, even the engaged and married gals are going to like this one. It's written with a dry wit and is laugh out loud funny. I couldn't put it down and I'm actually sad it's over!
Currently, I'm reading Blueprints for Building Better Girls by Elissa Schappell and really enjoying it. What have you read lately? Do you have any suggestions for me?
