A Fun Read



I just read Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger, the author of The Devil Wears Prada.  The book followsthe fictional Brooke and Julian, a married couple who experiences the price of fame once Julian's song hits number four on the billboard music charts.  A tour with Maroon Five, appearances on the Today Show, papparazzi, affairs and lots of celebrities!  I recommend it for anyone who is looking for a light, entertaining read.  It is not going to change your life or even make you think.  It's pure escapism and fun.  My only complaint is the ending.  I don't want to give it away, but let's just say it's a little too "fairy-tale" for me.  If you like reading US Weekly, you will love this book!



Next up for me is completely different: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.  This young adult book has been on the New York Times Bestseller list and was highly recommended by Mojito Maven.  It explains the aftermath of a teenage girl's suicide and the reasons why she made her decision.  I will let you know how it is. 

Other books that are on my reading list are:
-  Dune Road by Jane Green
-  Hope in a Jar by Beth Harbison
-  The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
-  Twenties Girl, Sophie Kinsella
-  Happy Ever After, Nora Roberts
