Since I’m not fit for much except sprawling on a couch today anyway, it seemed a good time to catalog books. This week’s reads have been:
— An Old Fashioned Girl, Louisa May Alcott
This is a traditional Thanksgiving re-read for me. This may be heresy, but I like it even better than Little Women.
— Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell
About as far as one can get from Louisa May Alcott. Much darker and more dystopian than the HBO series.
— The Waitress, Melissa Nathan
I was hooked on Melissa Nathan’s books from the moment I stumbled on Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field in the British imports section of the late, lamented Wordsworth Books in Harvard Square. The best of all possible British chick lit.
— Don’t Tempt Me, Loretta Chase
Light, fun Regency by one of my favorite historical romance authors.
— The Reluctant Heiress, Eva Ibbotsen
A crumbling castle, an unhappy entrepreneur, and a princess who runs away to join the opera. Who could ask for anything more? Oh, yes. Comic side characters. There are plenty of those, too. And true love, of course.
— Bright Lights, Big Ass, Jen Lancaster
Yes, the Jen Lancaster obsession continues. I don’t know what I’m going to do after I’ve read the last one.
