Beautiful Bombshell (Beautiful Bastard #2.5) - Christina Lauren Needs more Max.
On the Island  - Tracey Garvis-Graves It's a great story idea, but I couldn't get past the mediocre writing.
About Last Night - Ruthie Knox I LOVED this. Funny, smart, realistic and hot I'd give it a 4.5 if GR would allow half stars. A little over the top near the end with the ZOMG he completes me no one will ever complete me the way that he completes me I AM NOW COMPLETE. But I could have just been a bit grumpy that I haven't found a Nev of my own.
How to Love an American Man: A True Story - Kristine Gasbarre Knocked down to one star (from two) after discovering that the author has been known to bully reviewers who left less than stellar reviews.
Atlas Shrugged - Leonard Peikoff, Ayn Rand That was fantastic.
Simply Irresistible - Jill Shalvis Sweet, sexy, light, funny this was exactly what I needed.
Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins Sweet fancy Moses. I'm giddy right now. And grinning like a fool. And kind of wishing I was eighteen again. Sweet, funny, witty, smart I want to take this book out on a date. Believable, relatable characters acting like believable, emotional, honest-to-goodness teenagers. If I had the means I'd be handing this book out on the streets because the happy buzz you get from reading it should be something everyone gets to feel. Here's to hoping Stephanie Perkins gives us another glimpse into their lives outside of Paris.
