Quickie Book Review

Okay, time for a DISCLAIMER refresher : I've already confessed to reading just about anything, and that I pretty much like any book I find entertaining.
DISCLAIMER #2: I suppose it's as good a time as any to fess up to liking books normally in the Juvenile section at the library. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, I'm looking at you here. And we all know Harry Potter was written for tweens, whether we chose to believe it or not. I'll also read virtually anything written by Carl Hiassen, even if it's in the kid's section.

Now that you know that dirty little secret (and it's not even Thursday) my quickie book review is on The Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot. Likeable characters, fun story, happy ending. What more could I want? Very much a Princess Diaries for adults. Where adults is translated to people old enough to vote.

Any book that starts out like this

I can't believe this. I can't believe I don't remember what he looks like! How can I not remember what he looks like? I mean, his tongue has been in my mouth. How could I forget what someone whose tongue has been in my mouth looks like? It's not like there've been that many guys who've had their tongues in my mouth.
HAS to be fun to read, right? Add in references to naked ass photos, pity bjs and how people who pay $60 for a pair of flip flops are trying too hard, and you've got yourself a LOL book.

So if you liked any of the previously mentioned books you should give Queen of Babble a try. And bonus there is a SECOND book, which makes for the start of a series!

That brings us to DISCLAIMER #3: In case you hadn't noticed, my favorite books? The ones that are part of a series! I just love an ongoing drama.

Ongoing drama, huh? Is that why we are friends? Do I fill that need for you? :) !!!!

I will have to read that book!! As soon as I finish the last Harry Potter that I have owned for a year, yes, I know, this is why I haven't discussed it with you, I haven't read it yet...well I am on page 502!!! Finding much more time now that I am ignoring my Prez duties!!!

I love the "teen" section for books. A lot of my fantasy books come from there. Books about faeries aren't easy to find in the "grown up" section and I already have most Charles de Lint books already.
