What I Just Read
Yes, another chick-lit-turned-movie book, but I couldn't resist. I watched the trailer for this one online some time aways back and decided that I would indeed watch this once we got back into tv and movies, and as I've said before, I like to read the book first. So, I went on a hunt for it at the library where it turned out to be checked out and I had to put it on hold (seriously?). After many weeks I finally went to pick it up and read through it really quickly because it was a fun story that you just wanted to find out what happens. This is a good one: a happy ending for all involved (I think), though it will keep you guessing a little bit as you read, and you really do root for Rachel, the main character despite the choice she makes. Bonus: this movie is set in New York City, and so is the book, unlike the last one I read which turned out to take place in London and had me screwed up for a few pages. And, as I was writing this, I just discovered that there is a second novel, Something Blue, that I am totally going to have to pick up. Definitely a good summer read!
