On My BookshelfI wish I had more time in my day to sit and read. I have so many books sitting here begging to be opened and read. But I am only one person with a tired set of eyes and I'm getting through them one fabulous novel at a time albeit slowly. You know I must get my reading done in between waxing sessions and colonics and parties and shopping. oh the life of a diva!
I have upcoming interviews with Emily Giffin who wrote Something Borrowed and Something Blue. Both of these books were so awesome, I didn't want either to end. I highly recommend ordering them right this minute! RIGHT NOW. Do it.
On my shelf right now is Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner, Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren (Devil Wears Prada) Weisburger, Angelina Jolie's memoir, Notes from My Travels (as if I would get an interview with her!), Conversations With A Fat Girl by Liza Palmer who was mentioned in this weeks People magazine- way to go Liza!!
She's Got Issues by Stephanie Lessing, all of Laurie Notaro's hilarious books, including We Thought You Would be Prettier- True Tales from the Dorkiest Girl Alive (how can it not be funny with that title?) Shaking Her Assets by Robin Epstein and Renee Kaplan, Rococo by Adriana Trigiani, Mim Warner's Lost Her Cool by Lynn (Fashionista's) Messina. All of these amazing novels to read! This is why I don't watch much television. I started and am almost done with The Journal of Mortifying Moments by Robyn Harding and I am enjoying it immensly.
Recently I read Lorna Landvik's book, Oh My Stars which is a must read. And if you have not read The Glass Castle By Jeannette Walls, I insist you buy it right this minute because it is required reading. Books by Wendy French such as Going Coastal and sMothering are funny and fast reads, I'm talking laugh out loud funny here.
If you are a Jane Austen fan, pick up a copy of Flirting With Pride & Prejudice, edited by Jennifer Crusie and including "flirtatious interludes" by the talented Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Michelle Cunnah, Karen Joy Fowler and many more wonderful writers.
