I’m just going to get going. This is becoming slightly embarrassing.
Nirvana by J.R. Stewart – I received this as an e-book from the publisher via NetGalley. This is Nirvana #1, and she has since revised the book, so this is based on the original. This book took me by surprise. It is well written, flows well, keeps you interested, and the characters are compelling. It is a sort of dystopian sci-fi centered around virtual reality and the extinction of bees (which is a very real concern actually facing us today). It is short and it ends abruptly. I am very interested in finding out what happens next in the series (I assume that there are others). I definitely recommend this. I’m giving it 4 stars.
The Inimitable Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse – I borrowed this as an audiobook from the Boston Public Library. This is Jeeves #2. These are really funny. Wodehouse was a comic genius. I thoroughly recommend anything by this author. Even ones I haven’t read yet. It is also not necessary to read them in any chronological order. Each chapter is like a little story and the books are self contained. You don’t really need to know what has happened in the previous books to get the later ones. Does that make sense? Just try them. I’m giving this one 3 stars.
Who Do You Love by Jennifer Weiner – I received this as an e-book from the publisher via NetGalley. And then there was this book…. This is a really cute love story. I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is the author that wrote In Her Shoes, which is also a great example of well written chick lit. Rachel is a Jewish girl from Florida with a bum ticker and Andy is a mixed race boy from a poor neighborhood in Philly. They first meet as kids in a hospital in Florida and then again as teens on a house building charity project in Georgia. The story follows their relationship through its ups and downs. I don’t want to ruin it for you, so I won’t delve any further, but let’s just say that one way or another it all works out in the end. Shocking, right? This is chick lit. We expect a happy ending of some sort. I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys a good love story. I’m giving it 4 stars.
Hero at Large by Janet Evanovich – I borrowed this as an audiobook from the BPL. This is really cute. I don’t have a whole lot to say about it. These are all pretty similar, but they are thoroughly entertaining and definitely worth the time. They are absurdly short and completely engaging. I’m giving this 3 stars.
And we’re done. I feel like I should stand up and do a curtsy, though probably not.
