Heather, I've had that book in my TBR pile for a while. I do need to read it. And Allison I did love the Cinderella Deal. 

 

I'm reading The Opposite of Me by Sarah Pekkanen.

I'm actually not liking "Postcards" much. I can tell because usually I race through books but this one, I'm thinking of every excuse to do something else. I actually went to see if it was WL because I considered posting it since I was heading to the PO anyway. I'll give it another try tonight and then if it's still "eh," abandon ship.

I'm listening to Big Girl by Danielle Steel which is much more chick lit-ish than she usually writes.  I'm really enjoying it!

I'm finishing up "Come Back," a memoir. It's ok, not as gripping as some others, but I'm still hooked. Next up is "High on Arrival," the Mackenzie Phillips story, another downer memoir but I find them so gripping.

My book club just finished Loving Frank by Nancy Horan.  Although I thought the book was very well written I didn't care for the characters.  We had a really good meeting as we had quite the discussion about this book.

I just started B is for Burglar by Sue Grafton.  After that I don't know what I will read - I have so many books in my TBR pile it is insane!  LOL  Maybe I will read Shopaholic and Baby since i have read all the others and I enjoyed them.

Our May book for the book club is Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.

I'm reading and really liking "The Blonde Theory" by Kristen Harmel. I thought it'd be the usual kind of drecko chick list, but it's not at all. It's about a very smart, successful woman who thinks she has to dumb herself down to get a man (I haven't yet gotten to the point where she realizes she doesn't have to, but I know it's coming) and I can totally feel her every point about the guys she runs into who like the ditz, no-brain bubbleheads. Very good book!
