bookshelves: young-adult, humor, romance, favorites
Recommended to Jim by: Flannery
Read from January 22 to February 03, 2012 — I own a copy

4.5 Stars

Wonderful! Funny, insightful, obsessive but in a good way... and unashamedly, universally romantic.

Should I admit that I knew all the movie stars mentioned, and all of their movies? Oh, and Mary Poppins is still one of my favs (true for everyone in this house).

P.S. I learned about this book from Flannery's wonderful review, which I strongly recommend (along with the book!).

message 5: by Jim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jim Thanks, Joan! I really enjoyed it, and I had to elbow my wife away from it a couple of times after she read the first few pages. She was reading Death Comes to Pemberley at the time, and not really enjoying it. This is definitely her kind of book, and mine too!

Jim Thanks for the like, Leanne! I am so guilty about the long-delayed correspondence.:) I hope you can forgive, and I promise to make amends within the next few days.

I hope you are well and happy, and taking good care. Best wishes to a truly lovely person, and more soon :)
