Home For The Holidays

I started reading this last December, since it's a Christmas book, but never got around to finishing it, so it's been chilling on my bookshelf for 4 months and I decided to just go ahead and finish it. It only took a week, but geez, I thought this book would never end. The first 100 or so pages were OK, but then once the two main characters started to hook up, it just dragged on. Of course there was the conflict towards the end of the book that all books have. Gotta have that twist to wake the reader up.

Maybe if I had finished reading it during Christmas time, I would've gotten into the holiday spirit. Maybe if I wasn't so bitter about love right now, I would've found it more romantic. But mostly I found it to be a waste of time and am glad that I bought it was gift card instead of spending the $7 it would've cost to buy it.

But that's just me.

Chloe Does Yale

I have passed this book a bunch of times at the bookstore and was a little scared to buy it because the cover and title suggests that it's about sex. And for some reason, I seem to think that the person at check out is going to care what I'm buying. It was only $5 so I figured I will just get it instead of starring at it every time I hit the bargain shelf. It actually wasn't that bad of a book. The best way to describe it is if Sex And The City went to Yale. Basically, it follows Chloe through the school year as she writes for the sex column for the Yale newspaper. The thing I didn't quite get was how someone who never has sex can write a column about it. Regardless, it was a quick read and worth the $5 it cost. So don't be shy, check it out.


I don't know what makes me read the books I read, I think I just liked the cover of this one and thought it would be a romance. It was kind of a romance, if you are a teenager, which of course this book was written for teens. It's about two teens who fall in love and throughout the whole book the boyfriend is trying to get the girl to have sex with him. Big shock there. Finally they do and then they get separated for the summer when they go to two different camps and the girl realizes that maybe she doesn't really love the guy. Spoiler alert: They break up. Which just proves my point that you can't find real love at the age of 18.

First To Die

I read this book a month or so ago, and for the life of me cannot think of anything to say about it. It's the first book in the Women's Murder Club series, and I'll probably read more from the series. The ending was very unsuspected. If you are a James Patterson fan, then you'll like this book. Sorry I can't say more, but I'm having writers block.
