I am quickly falling in love with the Sons of Destiny. The Sword did an excellent job of setting up the series. It introduced the main characters, made me laugh, made me want to see what happened in their lives. Plus, it is a romance novel. The two main characters were both strong, independent, and stubborn. What all good girly books are made of 🙂
How to Be Single was a decent read. It was hard to get into but the idea of the book was a good one. Basically a woman in her late-30’s decides to figure out how single women all over the world handled being single. She visited France, Australia, India, and a few other places. It was a good idea. Along the way, you also get updates on her friends back in New York (this is where the book was a little thin and harder to read) and their problems with their singledom. If this sounds familiar it is because Liz Tuccillo is one of the writers of the book He’s Just Not that into You and also a writer for the show Sex in the City. Her writing is good, there are just parts of the book I did not find entertaining.
What I Loved about 50 Truths Worth Knowing: Nothing really
What I Liked about 50 Truths Worth Knowing: I liked these short little stories and they had a good little message.
What I Loved: I didn’t love Candy Girl so nothing really stood out.
What I Liked: To say I liked the book, might be overstating…..I found it interesting. Diablo Cody wrote Juno (which I loved) and is writing The United States of Tara (which I am looking forward too) so I like her writing. Plus, how brave (or crazy—it is all perspective) it was for her to try stripping for a year. It was an interesting tale to read and a little disturbing.
