    I've read every book in the shopaholic series, and I have enjoyed every one of them...This one is no different.

    If opposites attract, Ellie and Dan are perfect for each other. She's impulsive; he follows all the rules. Ellie is a virtual orphan, whereas Dan's family is as close-knit as they come. At first, Ellie is thrilled to be accepted into the Cooper clan and embraces Dan's mom, Linda, as the mother she never had...until she begins to realize that Linda's "mothering" is far more intrusive than even the best daughter-in-law can handle.

    I've tried and tried to get through this book, but I haven't finished it yet. Maybe if I would have bought the book instead of the audio file...at this point, I'm tempted to rent the movie just so I know how it ends.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Chris says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "Very Good"

    I didn't want to stop listening to this story. If I had the book instead of an audio file, I wouldn’t have been able to put it down. This has been my favorite audio book of all time.

  • Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey through His Son's Meth Addiction

    David Sheff's story is a first: a teenager's addiction from the parent's point of view, a real-time chronicle of the shocking descent into substance abuse and the gradual emergence into hope.

    Before meth, Sheff's son, Nic, was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets. With haunting candor, Sheff traces the first warning signs, the attempts at rehabilitation, and, at last, the way past addiction. He shows us that, whatever an addict's fate, the rest of the family must care for one another, too, lest they become addicted to addiction.

    Book and Movie Lover says: "Painful and honest account"
    "Honest"
    Overall

    I listened to Tweak after this and it was interesting to have perspective from the addict as well as the person/people the addict's behavior impacts.

She tells herself that she's happy to sacrifice for love, especially when every woman in London would like to be in her shoes.

    Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age 11. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise.

    In this wickedly honest new work, Chelsea Handler casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date - including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

    Teddy says: "Just Plain FUNNYYYY!!!!!!!!!"

    It was like a 6-hour Chelsea Lately marathon...I liked that Chelsea was not only the author, but also the narrator. The book really made me laugh.
