Vacation Reads

Some of you asked if I would let you all know how the books were that I checked out from the library last week for our vacation. I've had a chance to read most of them, so here's what I think!

Chelsea Handler's My Horizontal Life was funny and I laughed out loud multiple times. Some parts were too good not to share with Trevor, so we ended up reading it together some of the time. It doesn't require much thinking and I'm not sure I believe every story she tells, but it's entertaining!

Janet Evanowich's One For the Money was really good. I like her writing style! I'd recommend it, that's for sure. My library doesn't have the next book in the series so I'm ordering it from Amazon.

Nicholas Spark's The Last Song. That's all I have to say :) It's a Nicholas Sparks book, what else can a girl on vacation want?!

Tina Fey's Bossypants has made Trevor laugh so hard. He saw it in the pile of books I brought home and claimed it as his. I haven't read it, but he's read me some parts that are seriously hilarious!

Jodi Picoult's Lone Wolf was really good, too. I read it in a handful of hours because I couldn't put it down. It was better than a few of her recent books, but the whole 'wolf' subject matter was kind of... odd.

Lisa See's Shanghai Girls is the book I'm still reading now. It's pretty decent for historical fiction ;)

Jennifer Weiner's Then Came You was the flop of the bunch. I haven't written it off completely yet, but I'm having a hard time getting into it.

So, weigh in, have you read any of these books? Agree or disagree with anything I've said? Should I keep trying with Then Came You? Let me know, guys!


  1. LOVE Nicholas Sparks too!! Excited to see your new design :) I trust you're having a great week. HUGS.

  2. my horizontal life & bossypants wre my 2 favorite books I read last summer! you should definitely check out Mindy Kalign's Is Everyone Hanging Out WIthout Me? Also, a hilarious book.

    Hope you enjoyed your vacation!

  3. I've read alot of Nicholas Sparks books. He knows how to get to this girls heart! Read the fist Janet series book. her writing cracks me up. I heard the movie One for the Money was bad though. I have Lone Wolf but haven't started reading. I just got done reading Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner. Maybe try reading a little more of it to see if you can get in to it?!

  4. Wow! Just a little light reading huh? I am soo impressed that you can read these in time to get them back to the library... I have a HUGE collection of books on my list to read some in paper some on the Nook.. I love Nicholas Sparks and met him 2x .. what a nice guy and I love anything by Wally Lamb. Can't wait to try some of the authors you suggested! Thanks for joining in the Under 300 followers blog hop.. I am your newest follower~
