Recent Reads

Since I'm not ready to talk about my own work just at the moment I thought I'd post about what I've been reading recently.

Everyone Worth Knowing by Laren Weisberger
Genre: Chicklit/Romance(contemporary)

This is the second novel by the bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada. There aren't as many laugh-out-loud moments as with her first book, but it was a lot of fun, and had me hooked on page one. I comiserated with Bette's struggles to balance her crazy new job with her personal life (though thankfully I've never had to deal with that kind of overlap between the two myself), and any romance reader could relate to the heroine's coming out of the closet as a romance fan. I'll definately be checking out Weisberger's next book.

A Twisted Bard’s Tale~ Selena Kitt
Genre: Erotic romance (lesbian)
Short Story (ebook)

This little story was a different take on Romeo and Juliet. I was expecting an alternate story with the two young lovers as women, but Selena Kitt takes a different, more interesting tack than that. It was amusing and original, and the sex scene was pretty darn hot. I recommend it as a fun, quick read.

Really cool blog. I'm not going to lie, I'm a sucker to see a picture of someone biting some fruit! Keep up the good work!
