What an amazing story filled with romance, murder and a scandal that might work out or backfire. A great read I never wanted to put the book down, this story will end with you waiting for the next book to be written in the Tylers of Texas.

Very intriguing story to identify the author of a manuscript found in an old mansion. Good play among the characters, too.

I Feel Bad about My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
Author
Nora Ephron
Review
The beginning of this book was funnier and more relevant than the second half. I couldn't relate at all to her real estate stories. That said, I went in to this book with high expectations, as she wrote the screenplay for When Harry Met Sally, and those expectations were met.

The Perfect Letter
Author
Chris Harrison
Review
Written(? Ghost-written?) by the Bachelor and Bachelorette's host Chris Harrison, this was better written than I thought it would be (no offense to Mr. Harrison), but still a pretty standard romance novel.

Nimona
Author
Noelle Stevenson
Review
A funny graphic novel of a mysterious shape-shifting young woman who wants to be evil, and the villain who's not sure what to make of her. The humor came from both both the colorful cartoony illustrations and the text. It also had heart and a nice ending.

Born Standing Up
Author
Steve Martin
Review
A solid look at Steve Martin's stand-up days. It wasn't funny in the way Tina Fey's autobiography was, but the humor came from Martin throwing in lots of jokes from his stand-up routines. I listened to this on PCPL's audiobook, and it was a very good, well-crafted listen.

EL James
Review
I was very excited when I heard this book was coming out. I couldn't wait to see things through Christian's eyes and to have a look into his personal history and the mysteries that surrounded his past in the trilogy. EL James did not disappoint. It was still pretty shocking to relive book one. This is truly an insight on most men's psyche. Just don't take it too seriously because it is a work of fiction after all. But boy was it entertaining!
