    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    This book is hilarious, informative, and endlessly entertaining. It's a must-listen for anyone who appreciates brilliant ladies who look great with man hands.

    In her latest enchanting novel, New York Times best-selling author Sarah Addison Allen invites you to a quirky little Southern town with more magic than a full Carolina moon. Here two very different women discover how to find their place in the world - no matter how out of place they feel.

    Anna says: "Lovely"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    This book starts to unravel at the halfway point, and then it continues to fall apart in the most anticlimactic and cliche-ridden way possible. I greatly enjoyed "Garden Spells", but this book seemed like it was born from the notebook of a teenage Twilight fan. You will not believe how boring the much-hyped town secret is.

    Story

    Rachel has always been a good girl--until her 30th birthday, when her best friend Darcy throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé Dex. Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for Dex. She prays for fate to intervene, but when she makes a choice she discovers that the lines between right and wrong are blurry, endings aren't always neat, and you have to risk all to win true happiness.

    Aimee says: "Ugh..."
    "You Don't Want To Spend Time With These People"
    Overall

    First, the good: Jennifer Wiltsie is a great narrator.
    Now, everything else: The people in this book are universally horrible. The lead character--Rachel--is a spineless victim who spends most of the book moaning about things that she has the power to change. Dexter (Rachel's beloved) is a cowardly cheater who continually makes decisions that mark him as stupid and morally deficient. And Darcy? Darcy is written to be 100% vile and unappealing, and it never makes sense why anyone would engage her in conversation, let alone be her best friend or propose to her. Also notable is that this book takes place in an alternate universe in which adultery is just something you do on the way to true love. I spent most of my listening time rolling my eyes and saying "Are you kidding me?" out loud to myself.
    If you're looking for quality chick lit, skip over to "Garden Spells" by Sarah Addison Allen, "Tara Road" by Maeve Binchy, or any Marian Keyes book, and forget that you were ever on this review page.
