I like books, OK? I like to read. I think all books are wonderful, simply because they're books. I started this challenge knowing that a book would be hard-pressed to get an F. And if you look back at the rest of the books I've read so far, you'll see that the lowest grade I've given so far was a C-. It just pains me to think of giving a book, probably what has given me more pleasure in my life than any other thing, a failing grade.

With that...

THIS BOOK WAS TERRIBLE. Once I got about 40 pages in

My world is in a state of change at the moment, and the Universe keeps throwing things my way that underline the themes of Change and Opportunity. This book is no exception. I got it along with dozens of others from a friend a year or more ago. I've never heard of the author. But it was loaded on my e-reader, and I read it because it was in keeping with my mantra of "try new things".

This protagonist's life gets turned upside down in the first chapter: a colleague dies at work, she meets a signi

I thought this book looked super cute! The info on the back made the book sound good --- but oh man was it misleading. This could possibly be the worst book that I've ever read! The interesting thing is that I finished it. This book is all about sex and issues. Lots of bad language. I can't believe someone published this book. Read if you dare!

About halfway through the book, I started enjoying pieces of it. This is a book that I read only because I had started it, and I hate not finishing. I've started it at least three times in the last year. I think her target audience is age range 23 and below... Just sayin. Not a read again-that's for sure.

Not a bad story - but I hate to think there are actually women out there who have such terrible self esteem that they can't figure out how to run their own lives. And I don't think much of friendship that is based on other's crises.

Earlier today I was in a downward mood and then I picked up my book and started reading again and it had me laughing and smiling and thinking I could finally have the courage to stand up to things I have wanted to do or say and do them or say them.

A quick summer read, pretty much just a beach book. i found the main characters overall self understanding to be minimal at best. she was annoying and immature at times too. a really base view into women's minds, but an easy read. i read it in only two days, so it went quick, anyways.

This is really interesting to me that I liked this book while most people hated it. Usually I am a hard sell on books. I hated The Shopaholic, and I get bored easily with most books, but this one..I liked? It was an uncomplicated, easy read. I can't remember too many details, just that I liked it.

It's actually WHAT A GIRL WANTS not just the material things in life but instead it's like a girl's emotions would be.

Entertained me while I was reading it, but a few thoughts stuck in my head that I just didn't agree with...
