Read in August, 2012

The narrator is a voluptuous and spunky Latina whose sense of humor is fun and flirty without being foul. And despite her being so different from me, I really enjoyed being inside her head -- a rarity among first-person narratives.

I *love* this kind of humor. I laughed out loud frequently, and I caught myself smiling at least once per page. The whole series is worth reading. Completed at just 4 books, I appreciate that the author didn't fall into the trap of other successful series -- either being forced to "re-boot" main characters by giving them new abilities or handicaps, or being forced to keep recycling the same formulaic story over and over. Instead, everything's wrapped up in a tidy package after just four books. The only drawback? The books were so funny I *really* wished there were more of them.
