Made in the U.S.A. by Billie Letts

The love that sisters have for their brothers...I really enjoyed this book; even though at times it was a little far fetched and a little predictable by the end. But the characters are so well written that you will be willing to overlook all the down-sides. I truly hope that there are not people out there with a similiar story, because its one of the saddest I have ever read.

The World is Full of Married Men by Jackie Collins

This is the first Jackie Collins book (my second). I had fun reading this book, although it made me think twice about men, that's for sure. I just don't understand how people cheat so often, with little to no concequences? And although Claudia was your steriotypical Hollywood-Starlet-Wannabe, I couldn't help but like her. Not the sleeping with everyone part but the tough chick persona! Keep it in your pants boys!

Something Blue by Emily Giffin

Such a cute book! I totally loved! I actually think a lot of women will be able to relate in some way to Darcy! She is such a believable character! By the end of the book I was seriously reconsidering my wardrobe!

Revolutionary Road

? My thoughts on this book...are a little slow coming. It was well written with a good story base, but long and boring was the way! He, your typical male shovenist. She, your original desperate house wife...I would think that if you are that miserable in your daily life, you would try to change it? Which I guess is what she tried to do but really!?

Poor Little Bitch Girl

How many different ways can I say I LOVE this book! It was such a guilty pleasure for me! I have to admit that this was the first Jackie Collins book I have ever read, but when I finished it after only 2 days, I went out and ordered her first book (I plan on reading every one she has ever written.) I do wonder however, if this book was based on anyone in particular?!

Push by Sapphire

This novel truly broke my heart. I didn't know you could feel so many emotions with one story. I encourage even the most conservative person to read this book. I have never thought that my life was in any way hard; in fact, I would consider myself one of the lucky ones, but it made me realize how sheltered my life has been. That there are truly girls out there that struggle with these problems has made me open my eyes. There are true miracles happening every day and we need to stop more often and look at all the things people in this world overcome!

Choke by Chuck Palahnuik

What can you possibly say about a book like this. It gives a gritty inside to a life most people could never imagine! I enjoyed it although at times it was a little rounchy but not out of place. His relationship with is mother will make you stop, think and give thanks for the relationship you have with your own mother! The little twist at the end should have been obvious but I was so enthralled with the story that I didn't see it coming!
