Girls' Night In

Yet another book from the Lady Turpentine collection (LT, I'll get to the Marian Keyes...I swear...!). Very fun. A collection of short stories from top chicklit authors that was romantic and funny and sad...and just a bunch of really great stuff.

Vanishing Acts

I did enjoy this, though not nearly as much as My Sister's Keeper.

One thing that bothered me...and maybe I'm just ignorant about the this. Do they really keep people who are awaiting trial in with the general prison population? Because that just seems stupid.

I do enjoy her multiple POV style. I find it very interesting to read a story told through several people's eyes. If anyone has a Jodi Picoult recommendation for me, please send it my way!

Yeah, I'm behind...

I've been reading, just not posting. ;) Here's what I've read in the past week:

The Nanny, yet another book from Lady T's chicklit collection. Like all the others, I very much enjoyed this one. (Very British. Very charming.)

Yet again, I found myself at a school with nothing to read. I started this in the morning and finished in the afternoon. (Truth be told, I stayed a little bit after the last bell to finish it...) I've never read any other Carl Hiassen, and I know he's not known for being a young adult author, but I'll look forward to reading more.

and finally...

I just can't stay away from the YA stuff. :) This one was compared to Speak, and for good reason. A very, very quick read. Interesting. And a good use of second person POV. (I usually hate second person POV). Good stuff.

eta...dear God, I have no idea why the images are so big. I'll fix that later.
