    I really enjoyed this Mother-Daughter tag team narration of all their hilarious stories! I would recommend this to any woman looking for an easy laugh and listen, especially if you liked "Bossypants" by Tina Fey.

    I really loved how the mother and daughter aren't stereotypical females. They enjoy life, work hard and love, but they are not overly girly females. This is something I can relate to. Even though they are not "girly", they still love each other and support each other and it really comes through in their stories.

    Holly Ross often wishes she lived in a simpler time, when the clothes were glamorous, the men debonair, and the endings happy. That said, her career as a fashion historian isn't so bad. With both a wedding and a big promotion coming up, her own happily ever after seems assured. So how, in the space of one day, does it all go wrong? How does she end up homeless, jobless, penniless, and fianc-less? Why is she cruising the Mediterranean in hot pursuit of real estate tycoon Denis King?

    Story

    This book has not the most unique story line because it's loosely based off "Sabrina" and other Audrey Hepburn movies mixed with "The Devil Wears Prada; however, it was so fun and entertaining!

    The book visits many countries in Holly's travels. The words paint a beautiful picture of archeological sites, gorgeous beaches and some of the worlds most elite and impeccably dressed people!

    If you like fashion, travel and a great love story, this is the book for you!

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Story

    I couldn't even try to describe the beautiful writing this book has. The whole story is written like a Renoir painting. You think it's one thing from afar, but when you get closer, there are so many details and lessons to learn.

    At first, the book is hard to get through because there's a lot of details, but soon you'll find yourself sucked in. I would say the end of part 1 of the audiobook is where things really take off. By part 2, I was running back to my computer to finish the rest of the story!

    So, just like "Pi", don't give up, finish the story and you'll love it!

    Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer... everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun. When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a "reality version of Sex and the City," they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please!

    Story
    What disappointed you about L.A. Candy?

    L.A. Candy was an exact replica of Lauren Conrad's journey into MTV reality fame. All she did was turn "The Hills" into "L.A. Candy"- how creative... Being casted for a reality show full of blonde rich girls fighting over nonsensical things, does not qualify you for writing. This was not even entertaining.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Lauren Conrad?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from L.A. Candy?

    I would make LC re-write this book from beginning to end. I think it would have been more successful if we got Lauren Conrad's first-hand account of how "The Hills" changed her life; instead of her pretending to be a young-fiction author re-writing the terrible scripts of her 'real life' in "The Hills".
