i listened to this book on cd a few years ago. it was really good. having the actual book would have helped because there is the family tree. i found it hard to keep everyone straight.

i recently read something borrowed & something blue. very cute & easy reads.

enjoy!
I completely agree! I have read the entire series and they are SO light and funny. I've had people shoot me weird looks on planes, the beach etc.. because I was laughing out loud reading them! I don't know when the movie is coming out, I heard about it awhile ago, but I hope it comes out soon, I'd love to see it!

I would suggest anything by Jennifer Weiner. It's total chick lit, but "smart" if that makes any sense. I love her. Also, Sophie Kinsella also writes under another name, Madeline Wickham. They are one in the same and if you've read all of the Shop. books, try the novels written by Madeline Wickham. I just read one that was written years ago (pre-shop, I think) and it was hysterical.

 

Oh! I also recommend Emily Giffin. Her 1st book is called, "Something Borrowed" & the second is "Something Blue." They are both light and entertaining.

I'm a fan of Jane Green novels. They are light and fluffy British Chick-Lit, kinda steamy but not too sexy.

 

I'd like to start reading the Southern Vampire series that was the inspiration for Ture Blood on HBO.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
