I finished "Atonement" last night, and today I'll start the "The Other Boelyn Girl."

I just got put on the waiting list at the library for "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire. I hope it doesn't take too long to get it becaue I really want to read it.

I just remembered I really want to read "Atonement," thanks to Thora. I'll probably have to be put on the waiting list at the library for that one, too.

Just finished "The Time Traveller's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger. It is basically a romantic novel with an intriguing sci-fi twist - its male protagonist suffers from a disorder which causes him to randomly disappear from his present life and find himself in the past or present. Personally I'm a sucker for such scenarios and mind-screwing paradoxes it poses; here its main aim is to explore the relationship between Henry the time traveller and his wife, who first meet when he's in his fourties and she is six. I really enjoyed the book and found it quite moving.

^I LOVED Time Traveler's Wife. Demi Moore has purchased the rights to that novel btw.

I just finished Valerie Bertinelli's book and it was really a disappointment. She certainly wasn't the innocent clean cut all American girl everyone thought she was.

I finished "The Abstinence Teacher", and I enjoyed it just as much as "Little Children". I would definitely suggest it! Cori, I know you mentioned really liking "Little Children", so if you ever want to check it out, you should go for it. I just started "The Age of Anxiety: From McCarthyism to Terrorism" by Haynes Johnson, and I can already tell it's really going to challenge me and interest me. He chronicles the history of the Cold Warn and how the Bush administration is using similar fear-mongering and McCarthy-like tactics in the "war on terror."

I actually had The Abstinence Teacher on loan from the library, but wasn't in the mood to read it, so I returned it. I'll definitely get around to reading it eventually.

There's a great joke opportunity here, but I'll be damned it I'm going to be the one to make it.

#16 How To Be Popular by Meg Cabot

Another challenging read. Ha! What can I say - I adore Meg Cabot. This one wasn't her best as far as the teen-lit set goes, but it was far from the worst I've read of hers. It was cute and the perfect book to have at my bedside to easily pick up and put down when I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore.

I'm about to dumb down this thread guys

I read Tori Spelling's memoir this weekend. I have to say, it was entertaining. It'll be a good summer-time-by-the-pool read for those of you who like that sort of thing.

If anything she wrote about her mother is even remotely true, then Candy Spelling is monster.
