Book Club

I'm working and I'm sort of busy, kind of off and on. So I figured I'd do another episode of "The Angi Only Bookclub". I thought I would go ahead and high light my favorite series/trilogy that I've read. Originally I only found out about this because Megan gave them to me to read...now I've read the whole series more times that I can remember.

From BarnesandNoble.com: "Maddy, Christine, and Amy find that an old college roommate has written about them in her new self-help book-and they're furious that she's used them as examples of how women screw up their lives. And the worst part is, it's sort of true. Together they make a pact: they'll face down their fears-and maybe show Miss Perfect a thing or two!

Maddy rejected her high school sweetheart's marriage proposal for art school years ago. Now her friends challenge her to rediscover her lost passion for arts. In doing so, she crosses paths with her old flame, Joe, at an art camp. Perhaps it's about time that Maddy reignites another old passion."

Ok, so the review doesn't tell you crap about the book. Here is what you need to know: It rocks. Read it.

This is the second book in the trilogy. Not my favorite, but I'm pretty sure it's Megan's favorite. I'm not much of an outdoors person, so maybe thats why this isn't my fav.

From BarnesandNoble.com: "A beautiful novice skiier tries to overcome her fear of heights-and love-when she meets a hunky instructor on the slopes."

Yeah, the Barnes and Noble description is disappointing. Dang. Anyway, its about a girl who always tries to live up to her dads expectations. She has to face her fear of heights to meet her challenge among her three friends.

This one is my favorite of the three. I love this one.

From BarnesandNoble.com: "Ortolon's enjoyable final novel in her Perfect trilogy (Almost Perfect; Just Perfect) spins a good, old-fashioned contemporary fairy tale, but conscious suspension of disbelief is required. It's time for nurturing, curvy, Texas-bred Amy Baker to face her ultimate fear-traveling alone. She plans a working vacation cruise as a nanny, but gets fired and stranded on the Caribbean island of St. Barts before the trip begins. Determined to finish her challenge, Amy takes a job as a housekeeper for Guy Gaspar, a disfigured man who lives in his extravagant fort's tower and never shows his face. Or so she's told by his jolly French assistant. In reality, the lone tenant is sexy Hollywood golden boy Byron Parks, who seeks anonymity from the paparazzi. In an Oscar-worthy performance, Byron plays both assistant and "beast," and Amy falls in love with "Guy" over the fort's intercom. In this novel's case, the title is right on: the fanciful plot twists are fun, but Amy's character reads juvenile, and Byron is too sensitive for a playboy, even one with a heart. "

Ok, that review is better. Yeah, it is TOO perfect. All of the books are too good to be true, so don't read them if you want something serious and realistic. Because they aren't. But they are good. I started Almost Perfect again last night on the treadmill. They are so entertaining, the time flies.

Thank you for joining me for this edition of the Angi Only Book Club. I hope you enjoyed.
