After You (book #6)

Book #4:
After You, by Julie Buxbaum.

How have I never heard of this author before?  I love, love, love this book.  Go right out to your nearest bookseller or library right now and get this book.  What are you waiting for??!!

I don't know why this book hits me so hard, but I fell in love with Julie's writing style and her characters immediately.

I'll be checking out another of Julie's books, The Opposite of Love, as soon as I can get my hands on it.

Up For Renewal (book #5)

My latest read was:  Up For Renewal (what magazines taught me about love, sex, and starting over), by Cathy Alter.

I really enjoyed this book (non-fiction) and found it had a lot that I could relate to.  Who hasn't picked up a women's magazine?!

Would recommend.

Last Night at Chateau Marmont (book #4)

Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger - is my latest read.  While I really enjoyed the book (as I have enjoyed all of Lauren Weisberger's novels), I'm not sure I would have wrote the ending the way it is... without spoiling it for you, I would have preferred it to end differently.

By the way, check out the actual website for the real Chateau Marmont!  It's peppered with photos of "old Hollywood" stars.

You must check out the Chateau on Wikipedia.  Read the notable people and events section for some entertaining facts.
