  • Let’s pretend this never happened

    Let’s pretend this never happened by Jenny Lawson is $2.99! We have reviewed another of Lawson’s books on the site and writing hers is highly recommended. Lawson has a knack for tackling difficult topics with an accessible and humorous voice. Are you a fan of Lawson’s blog? Have you read any of her books?

    When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. However, it did open up an opportunity for Lawson to find humor in the strange spiral of shame that is her life, and we’re all the better for it.

    in the irreverent Let’s pretend this never happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the startling discovery that the most terrifyingly human moments, the ones we want to pretend never happened, are the very moments that make us the people we are today. For all the intellectual misfits who thought they were the only ones to think the things Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a moving and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing but wonderful moments of our lives.

  • the secret maid of honor

    Katy Birchall's Secret Bridesmaid

    the secret maid of honor by Katy Birchall is $2.99! This is a contemporary or perhaps more fictional romance with strong romantic elements. Anyway, being a professional bridesmaid sounds like my personal hell.

    Marriage meets chaos in a modern British romantic comedy about a young woman tasked with pulling off the biggest aristocratic wedding of the year, and the misadventures that follow.

    Sophie Breeze is a brilliant bridesmaid. So brilliant, in fact, that she’s made it her full-time job.

    As a professional bridesmaid, Sophie is hired by London brides to be their right-hand woman, posing as a friend but working behind the scenes to help plan the perfect wedding and make sure their big day runs smoothly. When she is hired by Lady Victoria Swann, a former model and “It Girl” of 1970s London; now the Marchioness of Meade, for the society wedding of the year, should be a chance for Sophie to show how talented she is.

    Of course, it’s not ideal that the bride, Lady Victoria’s daughter Cordelia, is an outright diva and determined to make Sophie’s life a nightmare. It’s also a bit inconvenient that Sophie has a crush on Cordelia’s dashing older brother, who is absolutely out of limits. But when a rival society’s wedding is announced for the same day, things start to get…well, messy.

    Will Sophie be able to pull off the biggest challenge of her career? Executing a high-profile gala for four hundred and fifty guests in record time, winning over a reluctant bride, and gaining the attention of the handsome Lord Swann, all while maintaining her true identity. a secret, and her dignity intact from her?

    touching and hilarious, the secret maid of honor celebrates the joys (and weaknesses) of weddings, the nuances of female friendship, and the redemptive power of love in its many unexpected forms.

  • From Tai’d Up

    Mai Tai'd Up by Alice Clayton

    From Tai’d Up by Alice Clayton costs $1.99! This is the fourth book of the Cocktail Serie. I think the first few books are connected, but this one has a completely separate couple. Man, I miss Alice Clayton’s writing.

    Looking for the perfect combination of smart, sexy and sassy? From Tai’d Up keep going New York Times author Alice Clayton’s successful Cocktail series, which began with wallbanger and continue with rusty nailed and unscrewed.

    The gossip factory in the coastal community of Monterey revolves around Chloe Patterson, the newcomer who is opening a sanctuary for rescued pit bulls. Rumor has it that she is a former beauty queen (true) who dumped her fiancé the morning of her wedding (also true). And while she’s not looking for a new man, the handsome local vet has his eye on her. Absolutely and positively true.

    When Lucas Campbell isn’t at the family vet clinic, he paddle boards in Monterey Bay. Recently single, he’s definitely not in the market for a new relationship, but he still can’t resist taking a second, third, and fourth look at the recent arrival of Miss Golden State.

    Neither Lucas nor Chloe have any interest in being tied down. Being tied, however, now there is a thought. But, are a few Mai Tais, a moonlit night and the music of Frank Sinatra enough for both of them to forget their past? Let’s hope Ol’ Blue Eyes knows what he’s up to.

    Mix one part tiki, one part kinky, and a touch of old black magic to match, and it’s time to be. . . From Tai’d Up.
