I'm very excited about launching this! I've been working on the icons for it for ages, to be honest, because it takes such a long time to read a book/reread to make notes/design 25 icons per book, but I think it's finally ready! I don't know exactly how often I'll post, but probably a few times a week? :)

Hope it's okay to post this, I noticed the maintainer of this community is no longer on LJ so I didn't know who to contact.

There is a lot of excitement and renewed interest in Emily Giffin's novels "Something Borrowed" and "Something Blue" because the movie adaptation is in production, so we've created a community dedicated to both books and the upcoming movies. Please join if you are a fan of the books or interested in movie news! :)

I have a discovered a new writer...well, he's actually not new, but he's new to me! lol......His name is Roman Payne, and I am currently reading his newest novel, "Rooftop Soliloquy." He can be found on facebook. He's published in France and the US.

Here's an excerpt from his book......."It was a time I slept in many rooms, called myself by many names. I wandered through the quarters of the city like alluvium wanders the river banks. I knew every kind of joy, ascents of every hue. Mine was the twilight and the morning. Mine was a world of rooftops and love songs."

Current Mood: cheerful cheerful

Hello everyone!
I'm new here and I really need to know what you guys think of the book Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger. I bought this book 2 months ago and I still haven't finished reading it. This book does absolutely nothing for me, and I'm bored out of my mind when I read it. I'm so disappointed because I LOVED The Devil Wears Prada.
I looked around the community to see if there wasn't already a post about this, and I couldn't find one.
So, here's my question : Am I the only disappointed by this book?
Liv :)

Hi!

I was just wondering who else has read Baby Proof.  I just bought Something Borrowed and Something Blueand I loved them!  I read them much too quickly because I couldn't put them down.  So, naturally I went out and bought Baby Proof and I can't seem to get into it.  I've actually put the book down in the middle of a chapter.  I haven't read very much of it, only 50 pages are so.

Name:  Becca

Age: 26

Favorite Author or Book: The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

Current Read: Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin  -- just a few chapters left!

What authors would you like to be included in the books of the week?: Candace Bushnell

Are there any specific books you would like to be included? If so which ones?


Just a little about me:  I used to be a very avid reader and could spend an entire weekend just reading.  I am now the mother of a one year old son and no longer have the luxury of time to read as much as I'd like.  I have begun reading chick lit because I find it very relate-able as well as easy to read.  I also love to write myself, but haven't done much writing in years.  So, I have created a new journal and trying to get a little piece of myself back.

I don't even know where to begin with this review. This book has to have been the most painstaking book to finish reading for me yet.

Lizzie Nichols (A.K.A. the Queen of Babble) just recently graduated from college with a History of Fashion degree and is planning on visiting her boyfriend in London. However, life is not all it is cracked up to be for Lizzie as she begins to run into many difficulties starting with her finally requirement from the university.

In spite of challenges with her graduation requirements, she stills flies to England to meet up with her boyfriend to discover he is not really the man he claimed to be. Escaping the lies of foreign love, she reconnects with her best friend in Europe, but because of her 7-11 mouth, she continues to get into more and more trouble. Will he mouth ever find a way to remain closed and can Lizzie find her way out of the debacle she has put herself in?

I bought this book with some high expectations, however I should have left it on the shelf. Griffin is clearly what Cabot is not. Cabot's writing reminds me of the mind of a teenage girl: very indecisive and full of meaningless, pointless, annoying whining. Throughout the whole book I kept screaming two words: "Shut UP!" And I think this is what made it very difficult for me to finish. I could not handle all the babble the Lizzie had in her.

Furthermore, I guess I was spoiled with Griffin's detailed writing. I loved the fact that Griffin writes with detail to the character's history and current lifestyle, and I was looking for that with Cabot (oops).

Sorry if you're a Cabot fan, but this clearly is not for me. I am just happy I made it through the bloody book.

What did you think, if you read this book???

No, I am soooooo not getting married. But I did finish reading these two books and would like to know what people thought of them, if you read them. I have my thoughts, but I like to hold discussions. Which character did you enjoy most: Rachel or Darcy? Why? What do you think about what RAchel did? Was she right to do it? Was she wrong? What would you have done differently? What about Darcy? How do you feel about the relationship between the two girls??

OMG... so many questions. I just wish I had someone closer (distance wise) to talk to about these books!! Let me know.
