The First Husband by Laura Dave

I recently read The First Husband by Laura Dave. I had heard fantastic things about this book and was very excited to read it. The book follows Annie Adams who is a travel writer for a magazine. After dating a man for several years she breaks up with him and marries someone she barely knows, thus changing her entire life. They move to a new town where she does not know any one. Happiness does not last forever as her life starts to spiral out of control.

This book was very well written. I did not enjoy it as much as I hoped. While the event in the story can happen, they were not very relatable to real life for me. She rushed into a life that she was not ready for so of course their would be challenges. The story it self was light, and comedic at times. This would be a good beach read.

Everyone check it out and post your thoughts when you are finished!

Carrie Diaries by Candance Bushnell

In preparation for the upcoming CW tv show and being a big Sex and The City fan I recently read The Carrie Diaries by Candance Bushnell. This is a prequal of the the Carrie Bradshow character from Sex and The City. If you were expecting the same sex crazed type of story you would be mistaken. This story follows Carrie as she grows into the character that we all know and love. It starts with her life in high school and how she began her writing career.
