You Know You Love Me and All I Want is Everything. (Cecily Von Ziegesar)

Yeah, another one.

Make that two more. I think that I like the TV characters better, but the book storylines better. It's sad that I just typed that sentence about a Gossip Girl book. LOL.

The Wedding Girl (Madelaine Wickham)

Not bad at all. A more serious novel than she usually writes, thought the main them (be who you are, not who you think others want you to be) is a bit obvious. Thought that the conclusion was rushed.

Overall, a B.

My Fair Lazy (Jen Lancaster)

So, I think all of Jen's books (like her blog) are hysterical. Additionally, we have far more in common than I would have suspected given our different life positions and political stances.

That said, Bitter is the New Black is still my favorite. The wit was so biting. It was awesome. This one felt like a lot of the dialogue was manufactured, "So did you know that, Fletch, that XX vintage wine was originally" blah, blah, blah.

The parallels with My Fair Lady were interesting and some of the situations were truly hysterical. So worth the time and amusing.

Gossip Girl (Cecily von Ziegesar)

Yes. I'm ashamed. But I am reading these YA books because I got addicted to the show.

You know you love me.
