1. Bookends Jane Green
I really liked this book. I thought more about chasing dreams, finding the one, helping a friend, London, married couples, au pairs, and having a book store. And trust me thats a big boost to my imagination, since what I think about now didn't have much of those. I just wished it said more about books, because even though the narrator, Cath, loves to read, it didn't say much about the books themselves.
2. Sunday's At Tiffany's James Patterson & Gabrielle Charbonnet
This book blew me away. There was some unreality and fanatasy in it so it wasn't like a realistic journey for me. But because the fantasy wasn't overdone so it stayed true to me. I loved it's independence and romantic feel.
3. Falling In Love With Natassia Anna Monardo
And then theirs the BF. Who caused the Natassia all the trouble.
In this book, I learned about people and the book, in every chapter, goes deep into each character and their lives. Secret after secret, and pasts revealed. I learned more about ballet, steps to recovery, being a mother, and therapists. I learned more about the fat that the past can never be predicted. I loved this book tremoundously, and a definite recommend!
4. The Time Traveler's Wife Audrey Niffenegger
5. A Long Way Down Nick Hornby
The characters, you easily fall madly in love with each of them. Nick Hornby (the author) wrote the story as each four narrated their view, and he really gets into their way of thinking. Their philosophies on topics, events and all. You start to see their points of view and understand why they're so fucked up. This book is very thought provoking!

7. Seven Ways To Lose Your Lover Alesia Holliday
This book was okay. Funny. Cute. A girl helps people breakup because one doesn't want to be in the relationship theres some reason they don't want to breakup with the other. So she intervenes. Also she mostly wants to get money to start her own boutique. Well one of her clients ex finds out and tries to get to the bottom. But love happens. Dun dun dun. My compliants with this book was the characters. They were so flat. No past. No future. Just then and there. There was a peek in the past when there was a mention of a death of her mother, but thats all. Also, no in depth thinking or her philsophies. I felt rushed reading this. Mostly cause I wanted to get it over with. But despite all this, I must mention, there were some good scenes. But some also bad, where there was no reason why something happened. It was like, the author was trying to create drama.
