Hello everyone! I just recently stumbled across this community and am very glad that I did. I have loved reading ever since I was old enough to! :o) I've compiled a list of books I've read recently (within the past two years) and am interested in any recommendations ya'll may have!

Book ListCollapse )

Also, has anyone read any of the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke? Those are currently my favorite reads :o)

I just finished reading Improper English by Katie MacAlister and I could not put the book down! I thought it was so good with just the right amount of smut! I am new to this community but I love to read. At my job I have a lot of free time to catch up which is nice. I also recently read Monkey Business by Sarah Mlynowski. That was also a book that kept my interest. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know! Thanks!

New Jane Green book out next month
I don't know if this was already posted or a known thing already, but it's new to me! - coming out in early March!

The Other Woman

Bibliographic Data: Hardcover, 400 Pages, Penguin Group (USA) Incorporated, March 2005

Author: Green, Jane

List Price: $23.95
In-store prices may vary. See your local store for the most up-to-date pricing.

Status: Not Yet Published

BINC: 7747320

ISBN: 0670034045

Shelf Location: Literature/ Fiction

About the Author: Jane Green worked for many years as a jounalist with occasional forays into public relations for film, television, and the odd celebrity.

Description: Jane Green's bestselling novels are rich with wry, clever insights into the romantic lives of her idiosyncratic heroines, winning a devoted fan base. Now, with The Other Woman, Viking will reintroduce America to the inimitable Jane Green. If opposites attract, Ellie and Dan are perfect for each other. She's impulsive; he follows all the rules. Ellie is a virtual orphan whereas Dan's family is as close-knit as they come. At first, Ellie is thrilled to be accepted into the Cooper clan and embraces Dan's mom, Linda, as the mother she never had -- until she begins to realize that Linda's "mothering" is far more intrusive than even the best daughter-in law can handle. What can Dan and his mother possibly have to talk about on the phone twice a day? And how has the intimate civil ceremony Ellie always dreamed of turned into a black-tie affair that would rival a royal wedding? Suddenly, Ellie finds herself wondering if it's possible to get an annulment -- from Linda. A hilarious yet touching look at mothers-in-law and what they teach us about ourselves, The Other Woman is a brilliant hit from a novelist whose star just continues to rise.

Books for Sale
I hope this is allowed.. I'm having low cash issues right now so I (reluctantly) decided to sell my books. I have a good collection of chick lit and also a few mystery (James Patterson, etc). I'm going to sell the paperback for $5 and the hardcover for $7 plus shipping charges. If you want to buy a few, maybe we can work out a deal. ;) Comment if you are interested and I'll put your name on them!

haven't felt very inspired by a book as of late.

If you have a good novel that you fell in love with and is a book that you could read over again, please recommend it to me.

I appreciate all of your suggestions.

Mr. Maybe
That book had its ups and downs. But overall I think it was a disappointment.

Now it's time to read "Shopaholic and Sister!"

Angry Housewives Eating BonBons
** crossposted from my own journal (mirrored at megalion)

Been reading a lot more lately. Particularly from this new "genre" of chick stories in trade sized paperbacks with colorful/appealing colors. I haven't read a bad one yet. In fact, each one would make a great movie!

I'm head over heels in love with Angry Housewives Eating BonBons by Lorna Landvik which I devoured on the plane coming back East. It's a wonderful story about several women who live on the same street who end up bonding over a book club they form. Definitely inspires you to join a book club yourself! 

I just finished reading Bad Girl Creek by Jo-Ann Mapson which is also very good. It has a really ecletic cast of a 30 something virgin in a wheelchair, a black female farrier, a bird lover who's also an ex con for having "killed" her abusive husband, and a photographer who easily looks the part of a high society gal but roams around with her beloved golden retriever. Add in a flower farm, a ghost of a strong woman, a Trash Mouth parrot and much more and you've got a great captivating story! I certainly look forward to reading other books by her soon.
       
Here's a taste of what you'll find.

"Phoebe?" Juan asks in the dead of the night, when we're lying spent from making love, our limbs entwined, the sheets twisted around us. "You sleeping?"

I'm dazed out of my skull, so satiated I'm beyond dreaming. His touch on my hand barely registers. I smile and squeeze his fingers. In response, he slides a ring onto one of mine. Whoa. That cool metal circle wakes me right up. I touch it with my right hand, feel the stone, and recognize without benefit of light he's just given me an engagement ring. It's like the most wonderful dream, and I guess he meant it to feel that way. All I know is I'm shaky, scared to death, and don't know what to say.

"Um, Juan?"
"Yeah, baby?"
"Aren't you supposed to get down on your knees? Not to mention give me roses?"

He makes a sound in his throat like I have to be kidding. "What do you need with roses? You got an entire flower farm."

"Well that's true. It's just that I think roses are a woman's constitutional right."

He laughs, kisses my cheek, and I can feel his guy parts stirring against my thigh, once again coming to life. My UPS deliveryman is seemingly inexhaustible. "Fine, you want roses? I'll carry you outside naked and throw you in the garden."</i>

** Ooh!! I just discovered that there are at least 2 sequels or rather the author has written two more books of the "Bad Girl Creek Stories". The title "Along Came Mary" answers what I thought was a glaring plot line left unfinished. It was a teaser for the next book! Can't wait to read it!

The last book I finished before BGC was Last Chance Saloon by Marian Keyes. Again it's a book about friends only this time includes a gay man in a foursome group who live in London. Three of the friends had lived in the same small irish town growing up and the fourth is a swedish woman. Reminds me of Seinfeld & Friends a bit for the "neurosis" factor which is entertaining but not overwhelming or detracting.


The previous evening, to Katherine's horror, Tara had taken out the sweater that she'd been knitting for Thomas and said, "I might as well finish it and give it to him. It's a shame to waste it."

"No!" Katherine had jumped up, grabbed the needles, yanked the half-knitted sleeve from them, and torn frantically at the wool, unraveling line after line of stitches. "It's only an excuse to see him. Like the money he owes you, and the shower curtain you left behind, and the fact that you forgot to kick Beryl before you left. No, Tara, no!".

Tara's face was luminous with amazement. "Okay," she whispered.


Anyways, tonight I did some poking around and found this lj community so here I am!

So Excited!!!
I just picked up Girls' Night In today - the collection of short stories by Jennifer Weiner, Sophie Kinsella, Meg Cabot, Sarah Mlynowski, Marian Keyes, Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez and more, and I turned to the Jennifer Weiner page because the back says her story revisits the Good In Bed characters from his point of view, and I LOVED Good In Bed. Well, to my surprize the about the author section says that Jen Weiner is currently working on her fourth novel, A SEQUEL TO GOOD IN BED!!! Ahhhh I always wished my favorite books had sequels because I miss the characters, you know? I'm so excited for this.

I'll write a review for Girls Night In after I read it, but for now I just had to share my discovery!
