Shopaholic & Baby

From  Elaine Pasquali

Title:  Shopaholic & Baby

Author:  Sophie Kinsella

Pregnant shopaholic Becky is egocentric and shallow.  She even witches obstetricians so that she may be delivered by the obstetrician to the stars, only to find out that the OB is her husband’s old girlfriend.  But when superficial Becky is confronted with personal, professional and financial crises, she  galvanizes into action and displays loyalty, initiative and logical thinking.  The first two thirds of this book were slow-going and repetitious.  I was about to put it down when it came alive.  I’m glad I finished the book, although I doubt that I will read another book in the Shopaholic series.

Guilty Pleasures

From Andrea Payne
Title:  Guilty Pleasures
Author:   Bertrice Small
This is a romance/erotica novel about 4 women who live in a small town and they each discover the “Channel”, a cable channel for women only that allows them to realize their sexual fantasies.  Ironically, each woman’s fantasy seems to take place in another time period (early 1900s) and some of the language to describe the liaisons is very dated.  It was still an interesting read and although the innuendo seemed a little odd at time, it was still a page turner and great summer read.

Sleepaway Girls

From Janin, Teen Book Reviewer

Sleepaway Girls
In the book I read, Sleepaway Girls, by Jen Calonita, the main character, Sam Montgomery decides to take a break from her best friend, Mal, who gets a boyfriend. She does not want to hear them being all “lovey” the whole summer. Sam goes for a CIT (counselor-in-training) position in a camp called Whispering Pines, but still promises Mal and a bunch of other friends video-postcards while she is away. What Sam doesn’t know, is that her summer will be too jam-packed to do anything else besides the things that are keeping her occupied at camp! From the heartthrobs to the popular girls, how could she have time for anything? Sam is falling for the super-cute, surfer-blond Hunter, and has a rivalry with the camp’s queen, Ashley, who just happens to be one of the daughters of the camp director. But at least she has Cole, her best guy-friend, who sides with her on almost everything. All of the drama that happens at the Pines builds up to the fantastic ending.

I loved reading this book. It was a real page-turner, and I got so caught up in the book I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves reading about summer camp and all the drama that comes in the same package.

She’s So Dead to Us
 The Book She’s So Dead To Us by Kieran Scott is an enjoyable book. In this book, Ally has moved back to her home town after having moved away since her dad had some money problems. So now, she has to leave her low-key, happy life and go back into the snake pit with Shannon Moore and Hammond Roos, or so she thinks. Right after Ally left, perfect and handsome Jake Graydon moved into Orchard Hill. So when Ally moves back and sees Jake, she develops a major crush on him. Its a really interesting book told from two perspectives and I really hope you guys like it.
