Reading Report 13

What I read from 
July 28th-August 27

Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie
Adult, Romance, Humor
A bet misunderstood but it's seemed to entwine them so quickly they can't stop needing each other.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Young Adult, Contemporary
Heartbreaking yet feel good.  Set in the 80's we meet Eleanor who's had it rough, and Park who generally keeps to himself. Yet the two of them find in each other something no one else has provided yet.
(The first chapter or two are the roughest in terms of language.)

Getting Rid of Bradley by Jennifer Crusie
Womens lit, Romance, Comedy
Her Bradley or someone else's? Cop Zach overhears her conversation at the diner and assumes he's one in the same. After someone shoots at them, he's by her side to protect her as he figures out this mess. Funny and romantic, just the way I like it.

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
Young Adult, Fantasy (mystery/thriller)
A little Jack the Ripper come to life in modern day. Rory thinks she saw the killer and now she's the next target but she's getting help from her new friends.

Marriage Monday: Love Story

True love is woven out of honoring and understanding each other's unique gifts, vulnerabilities, and eccentricities." -John Gottman, Ph.D
