Just finished Shopaholic to the Stars Shopaholic to the Stars (Shopaholic, #7) by Sophie Kinsella by Sophie Kinsella

...and while there were some good moments, here and there, that contributed in making my overall reading experience reasonably enjoyable ...but I have to admit, that I didn't find this one as appealing as the previous books in the Shopaholic series.

Gayla Glass (gaylahambyglass) | 9 comments I just finished (last week) Place your Betts by Katie Graykowski, followed by the second in the series, Getting Lucky. I picked these up after reading the first in her new mystery series Rest in Pieces. I thoroughly enjoyed them.

Just finished What A Girl Wants What A Girl Wants (A Girl, #2) by Lindsey Kelk by Lindsey Kelk. Usually I do a detailed research before reading a book by a 'new-to-me' author but I came across this one while browsing around in the limited English section in a book store in Frankfurt am Main, where I live, and recognizing the name of the author as being highly recommended in the various Goodreads discussions, I decided to take a chance on it to pass the time till the books that I had ordered from www.amazon.de arrived. Of course, I did take the precaution of reading the blurb and the first few pages before buying it but well, though it was an ok read but it wasn't as enjoyable as I expected it would be from the way it began. 

My rating: 2 STARS= Average= Readable= I found it just ok.

Mara Pemberton (marapem) | 18 comments I just finished the CYNSTER Sister trilogy by Stephanie Laurens. I enjoyed the books, but wished it had a better narrator than the one that was picked.

Whoever, chose Matthew Brenher, should be shot. He did okay on the male voices, but female voices were terrible.

Carla Johnson-Hicks (carla1957) I just read I Wish for You by Camilla Isley , a first book by Camilla Isley. It is a romantic comedy and I did enjoy it. There is also magic involved which made it fun.

Odette Brethouwer (odettebrethouwer) @Ramla if you've just finished it, does that mean I can also read that book for this challenge? In that case, it is a recent read for you as well!

@Meshal Raza Wish I could have given you the book in my next visit to Pakistan but few months back when my previous bookshelf broke under the weight of my many, many books I decided to keep only those books in my new bookshelf that I could envision re-reading and unfortunately, this book was among those that I ended up donating to the Frankfurt city library.

@Odette From what I understand, you are asking if you can add The Vintage Wedding to the list of books that you intend to read and rate in response to my comment in the:
Comparing Books Challenge
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Well, officially, only one book should be selected by Member A from Member B's read shelf and only one book should be selected by Member B from Member A's read shelf. Once both members have read and compared the ratings, the challenge can be considered as successfully completed. Then if they wish, both or either of them can participate in the challenge again, starting from step 1. However, since I have already agreed that you can provide your feedback on all the three books you wanted to read and rate, I guess, adding one more book to the list won't make much difference! :-)
