Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr

I got a copy of this book for $1 at the Dollar Store, which turned out to be a pretty good deal. It's a quick read, straight-forward, earnest and kind of a breath of fresh air among all the vampire/werewolf/combat-inspired themes in young adult liter...more

Whiter Shades of Pale by Christian Lander

Clear rating
This book is hilarious. I had no idea I was such a stereotype. The only thing that keeps me from being more of a stereotype is lack of funds.

A quick read. I enjoyed it. I think her revelation that when you have a baby, glamour is over, is universal for the non-wealthy. And this book does present a counterargument to those who say the French are better parents. From her American perspectiv...more

I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag by Jennifer Gilbert
Rate this book
Clear rating
A compelling story for the most part. It did convince me that maybe being a wedding planner wouldn't really be so much fun. I don't think I'd have as much patience with the bridezillas as she did. On a side note, New Yorkers write about products like...more
