When I was younger I was always trying to read a book that was in higher reading level than everyone else. Competitive even when it came to reading books, it was ridiculous (I blame AR Tests and points… and the prizes, of course). Nowadays I tend to slum it down and reach for the lower reads. Gone are the days of trying to read books to appear intelligent, I’ll stick with my trashy poolside reads… at least for now. Speaking of poolside reads… Check out what I’ve been reading this summer!
Last Night At Château Marmot | Lauren Weisberger
If you’re into romance, or even if you are cynical about romance, I’m convinced you’ll enjoy this book as much as I did. It’s icing on the cake if celebrities and musicians are something that fancy your interests. Struggling artist, creeper-couple, scandal, rise and fall… and love. Will it prevail? Or will the newly successful artist ditch his wife along with his old life as a nobody artist.
Everyone Worth Knowing | Lauren Weisberger
Lauren sure knows how to tug on my heart strings with these romantically cynical novels. It took me a day and a half at the pool to finish this nearly 400 page novel. I only wish the story was longer, it was that intense. I was pulled it, hook, line and sinker… I’m also a sucker for the PR world and the chaos. Oh, and again with the celebrity-lifestyle twist. She’s good. She’s really good.
White Girl Problems | Babe Walker
This book had lots of pressure to be kickass, at least compared to the above (which I randomly found at the book store). White Girl Problems has been on my list to read for awhile… I’ve heard nothing but incredible things and ya know what, I couldn’t agree more. I want to be Babe’s best friend… and her worst enemy. It’s quite the combination. Also, can I have her credit card? I need more White Girl Problems in my life.
Psycho | Babe Walker
Next on my list… stay tuned!
Last but not least the books that didn’t quite make the cut…. Some books about being southern. I’m more of a story fan rather than quite antidotes about life and weird things. (That was such a profound statement, I know). Also some book about a girl who’s BF (well, ex bf) wrote an article in a magazine about “loving a fat girl”. Not sure if it was just too sappy and real for me to continue, or the author’s writing style just bore me to tears… honestly probably a combination.
But there’s that. What books should I venture into next? I need to start living vicariously through new characters…. Oh, and happy reading!
