I can’t help jumping the gun because some days (not today), there are 13 straight hours of brilliant sunshine.
I fantasize spreading out a blanket at the local park and reading something lightweight with oversized glasses but the reality is something usually comes up! I will, however, be able to sneak bites at the following novels I’ve got lined up for guilty girly reading pleasure….
The Guy Not Taken: Stories: This is my first Jennifer Weiner book but I have seen, and enjoyed, In Her Shoes, however faithful to the novel that was. I was drawn to the short stories compilation by the title, of course, and feel that a consolation is that I’m not stuck too long on a particular story if I don’t enjoy the characters.
Intuition: This 2006 novel involves drama and scandal (and romance?) in a virology (or microbiology) lab. Oh my! It’s been on my to-read list for a while and I can read it now that I have some distance and closure on that part of my life.
Happy Family: A Novel: At first, this novel resided on my Consider To Buy list but further exploration reveals it’s a New York City nanny drama novel with a Chinese protaganist. So it’s going to be my somewhat current (published 2008) summer read!
Lipstick Jungle: I was very sad that the television show ended after just two seasons because I’m a big fan of Lindsay Price, dating back to her All My Children (soap opera) days in 1991! I also became a Nico+Kirby fan and through reading the novel, I can complete the story and bury the memories knowing what Candace Bushnell had intended all along.
On this day..
