List of Reads -- A & B Edition

Recently, I updated my list of books read since starting this blog. Here are the As and Bs (by title) and a bit of commentary -- enjoy!!

A Hopeless Romantic by Harriet Evans: Fun book, a bit long, and took me awhile to warm up to the main character.

A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick: Intense character read, terrible characters who make terrible decisions.

A Wife's Tale by Lori Lansens: Great read, interesting look at a obese woman's search for her husband and herself.

Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Meyers: My favorite guilty pleasure, fun and entertaining story about a chef, a hitman, and a wedding.

All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris: Sookie Stackhouse series. Fun paranormal.

Already Dead by Charlie Huston: Intense detective story that takes place in the future with lots of vampires.

American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld: Based on the life of Laura Bush, engaging read, but slow at times.

Anybody Out There by Marian Keyes: Good chick-lit, sad story.

Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein: Phenomenal read, highly recommended.

Ask Again Later by Jill A. Davis: Funny, interesting story about a woman who is having trouble becoming an adult.

Austenland by Shannon Hale: Fun read for those who love Austen spin-offs.

Beach Trip by Cathy Holton: Women's fiction that details the adult friendship between four women. Good book club pick.

Best Intentions by Emily Listfield: Character driven novel that looks at marriage in crisis with a bit of a mystery.

Breaking Point by Suzanne Brockmann: Is it bad that I don't remember what this book is about? My guess -- a special forces unit who saves someone.

Burn by Linda Howard: I think this is the book where the main character wins the lottery and is kidnapped on a cruise.

I would recommend Agnes and the Hitman (so much fun) and Art of Racing in the Rain (it will make you laugh and cry). Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think?
