Royal Babylon: The Alarming History of European Royalty

by

This was a really intersting read. It took me many days to finish it, though not for lack of interest in the material, which was fascinating. Rather, I found that so many people where mentioned that it was hard to keep track of who was who and what he/she did. I'm not actually sure how much of this is accurate, but it sure was interesting.

I'm actually surprised at how much I liked this. I really liked the characters and the way they interacted, and they actually seemed fleshed out, unlike a lot of 'chick lit' characters. The story was interesting and it was a very fast read.
Playing For Keeps

by

Wayyy too many characters. I happened to like them, though. -.- I liked this but at the same time it took me forever to finish, which usually doesn't happen. I thought the male lead's past took way too long to be revealed, though.

Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto

by

This was really interesting! Some of the chapters I could've done without, but that's probably because I know nothing about basketball and don't care about country music. It was laugh out loud funny and made me see certain things differently. Not to say it changed my mind, but it offered a different perspective I hadn't thought of before.
The Boleyn Inheritance

by

I didn't expect it to be written from the perspective of three characters. Didn't like it as much because of that, I think. The first book was engrossing and I couldn't put it down, but this one I found myself putting down often. Definitely not as great as The Other Boleyn Girl, but not bad, either.
Shopaholic & Baby

by

I had a hard time getting into this book, initially, which surprised me because I've always enjoyed the books in the series. Luckily it picked up and turned out to be a great book. I wish it had dealt more with Becky handling the pregnancy, but overall I'm satisfied with how this book played out.
Family Trust

by

Yes, I admit it, I'm drawn to books with appealing covers. I almost stopped reading this one because the writing was bad, but I was interested in the characters so I read the whole thing. It took me ages and I would never read it again because the author just blabs on and on and giving every little description for things I didn't care about. I don't care about the scenery blah blah blah. I also hated that she kept changing the point of view from this person to that person. Shut up already! You're lucky you had one redeeming character, lady. This was so difficult to get through I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.
Otherwise Engaged

by

Much better than I thought it would be. A lot of the times it seemed like way too much stuff was going on, but I really liked all of the characters.
The Memory Keeper's Daughter

by

I'm a sucker for books with appealing covers. This one started off really strong, but I felt myself annoyed, at times, with all the descriptions of every little thing surrounding the characters. Too much description for me. The book was told from the perspective of many of its characters and if I was reading about a certain time from a certain characters point of view I wanted to read it from one of the others. Sometimes it felt like it dragged on, but for the most part I liked it. A little to melancholy/depressing for my taste, but an enjoyable read.
