I have been reading a lot lately and just wanted to share my thoughts on a few books I've recently read.
"Belle Weather, Mostly Sunny with a Chance of Scattered Hissy Fits" by Celia Rivenbark - Hillarious stories by the southern female Dave Barry. I think I will have to look for her other books now.
"A Fatal Waltz" by Tasha Alexander - This was probably my favorite of the bunch. I love suspense and mystery novels and also historical fiction. So what could be better than a book that combines the two? Also add a wonderful description of 18th century Vienna. I will definately be looking for more books by this author. The main character Emily was a delight. Did I mention there was a bit of romance too? Everything you need to make a read worthwhile.
"Queen of Babble Gets Hitched" by Meg Cabot This was a pretty lightweight book but it was just a quick fun read. There's nothing wrong with a little bit of fluffy reading for pure entertainment. The basic premise is that someone's getting married but is she marrying the right man? Do you already know the answer? I immediately knew the answer but it was fun watching her figure it out. Though there were times when I wanted to shake her and say "what are you thinking woman?!"
"The Curse of the Spellman's" by Lisa Lutz I actually enjoyed this book more than the first in the series "The Spellman Files". This was a mystery about a family of private investigators. Izzy is almost as much fun as Stephanie Plum. I do have to add that I found the footnotes a combination of funny and annoying.
