Jennifer Gillette | 7 comments Tickle Me Pink Challenge

Engaged - 6 books

1. A Vintage Affair/Isabel Wolff - completed 2/5
Great book! NOT chick lit, in my opinion. I loved the stories of the characters and the book is very well written.

2. Match Me If You Can/Susan Elizabeth Phillips - completed 2/12
I enjoyed the story enough but listened to this as an audio book and was so annoyed and distracted by the reading.

3. The Love Goddess' Cooking School/Melissa Senate - completed 2/9
Cute book - exactly what you'd expect, no big surprises, but a sweet story.

4. The Frog Prince/Jane Porter - completed 2/11
Not a fan. I began skimming the constant reflections of her recent past, but the current story was somewhat okay.

5. The Boy I Loved Before/Jenny Colgan - completed 2/25
Eh, not great.

6. Bye Bye, Baby/Max Allen Collins -completed 3/2 (so close!)
It was interesting, but I could do without some parts of Heller's personal stories.
