I’ve Got Your Number: A Novel – Sophie Kinsella; 4.0

The Violets of March: A Novel – Sarah Jio 4.0

The Undomestic Goddess - Sophie Kinsella; 4.0  Confession - I love Sophie and all things British.

On the Island - Tracy Garvis Graves; 4.0
 Guilty pleasure read without all the porn like 50 shades.

The Year Everything Changed - Georgia Bockoven; 4.0

What to Expect When You're Expecting - Heidi Murkoff & Sharon Mazel; 3.5 I've read this one 3 times so I figured should finally rate it.  You can get most of the info on blogs/internet now but sometimes it's nice to have a reference you can pick up and read.

The Art of Racing in the Rain – Garth Stein; 3.0 Sad...
A Three Dog Life – Thomas Abigail; 3.0
Another Summer – Georgia Bockoven 3.0

Summer Rental – Mary Kay Andrews 3.0

In Search of Lucy - Lia Fairchild; 3.0

The Marriage Bargain – Jennifer Probst 2.5

One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, No. 1) – Janet Evanovich 2.5 I know people love this series but I just couldn't get into it.  The writing was okay but the characters were too trite and overdone...
The Lost Years - Mary Higgins Clark; didn't finish...
A Game of Thrones - George R.R. Martin - on hold, not feeling it.  Never finished it .  Again, people love this series so I'd say go for it.  The writing was SUPERB (which I completely appreciated) but I just wasn't into the story/genre.

Cut, Crop and Die - Johanna Campbell Slan; 2.5 got this one for free and it's supposed to be a quick but funny/cute mystery but I think it was a bit too "old" for me.
50 Shades of Grey - E.L. James; I read this cause EVERYONE was reading it and talking about it....  It's PORN!  I'm not going to even rate it cause its PORN... lol If you are into erotic literature, this is the book for you.  It's not my genre but it's a crazy bestseller for weeks and weeks so people must be reading it in secret.
