  1. I've been on the fence about reading Best Friends Forever. Hope you enjoyed it!

  2. I always feel like I'm behind!! LOL! have a great week of reading!

  3. I'm kind've liking the title Bright Lights, Big Ass. :-)

  4. That sounds like a lot of reading you have to do. I have One Amazing Thing and Children of Dust on my TBR shelves also. good luck getting all of it done.

  5. I hope you have a great week in books!

  6. I loved Scared. It gets a little bit far-fetched and overdone, toward the end, but there's a point and I appreciated the author's theme.

  7. Enjoy the reading you have to do. It's always nice when there is a great variety to choose from, isn't there?

  8. Best Friends Forever sounds good - I also have Children Of Dust in the TBR.

    Have a good week - you have many wonderful books here.

  9. I've enjoyed every Jennifer Weiner book that I've read. Did you enjoy Best Friends Forever?

  10. alitareads/Mardel- I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would, but there were still good elements to it. I will have the review up this week hopefully.

    Staci- With everyone reading 7 books a week, I feel like I am the only one perpetually behind!

    Stephanie- It is a good book. There is more cleverness hidden within the covers. :)

    Natasha- Yes, a lot to do. I heard Children of Dust is very good and One Amazing Thing really intrigues me.

    Kathy- Thanks! You too! :)

    Bookfool- It is kind of a hard read at times but I, too, appreciate the theme. I am on page 70 now and I am worried about Adanna's mother. It doesn't look good.

    Stephanie- Variety is the spice to life, girl! I thrive on it.

    Sheila- Thanks! So many books, so little time!
