Woo Hoo!

Well, I'm finally finished with spring semester! I can finally  b r e a t h e !
I have two of my grades so far - an A and a B (out of 4 classes) so that's
something to smile about :-) I'm so ready for summer to be here!

Speaking of school being over and summer arriving, I FINALLY have time to read the stack of books I've been wanting to! I couldn't read during the semester because I was forced by my professors to read boring nonsense!
(I had to take a folklore and literature class - terrible I tell you!)

Here are some of the books I have lined up to read:

I've already started reading this and I must say it's funny
but I wouldn't expect anything less from Ms. Handler :-)
I already read My Horizontal Life and loved it.
I'm hoping to finish this soon so I can start reading . . .

 
I'm hoping this book will be the best yet.
After I finish Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang,
I want to start reading . . .

I read the first book of Lauren's and it's a total chick lit book
(obvs. my favorite kind) so I feel I should read this one too since it's
a follow up to the first one. I think I may have to re-read the first book
though since I sort off forget what happened - it's been a while since I read it.


I bought this book a while ago and have yet to read it. I love Nicholas Sparks (sorry for those who don't!) and his books are always quick reads for me.
Since it's been sitting for quite sometime, I'm going to try to read it.


Last but not least, my friend let me borrow these books and insists that I MUST read them because they're so good. You know let know what you think:



If you've read any of books above, let me know what you think!
If you have any recommendations, share with me! :-)

Emily Griffin and Lauren Conrad's books are both on my list. I hope this summer is calmer than the last! Congrats on being finished with classes!!

V said...

Brittany.... I knew I loved you from the beginning! I have read *literally* each of these books! I am a huge book worm. They are all great. Chelsey is a Goddess! I love that we have the same taste.

The only books I've read on your list are the Emily Giffin books which I LOVE! She also has another one called Baby Proof and her newest one is Heart of the Matter :)

You know my book review blog link right? The books you read are very similar to ones I'm into. I just read Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang and it was amazing! I can't wait to get LC's new book!

Melissa said...

I have read The Rescue.
It was a good book, but it was just a cute love story.
I also LOVE Nicholas Sparks' so if you haven't already, I recommend Dear John and The Guardian.
:)

Congratulations on being done with the semester!

Allison said...

Being done is such a relief, and sadly I have 2 weeks of school left!! You were a big time trooper throughout all of this. PROUD OF YOU!!

Enjoy your books and tell us how they are. I wish I could read books right now. Maybe in a few weeks.

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I have been dying to read Chelsea's new book! I have a stack waiting on me to read though! Have fun with your summer reads!

Are you there Vodka is an amazing book - I think that the final chapter is my favorite and I'm so happy she saved it for last!

lauren nicole said...

yay for no school!
yay for summer!
yay for good books!

i love "yay's!"

SurferWife said...

Ok, in my professional Chelsea Handler opinion...her latest book is my least favorite of the three.

Now. With that being siad, it is still AMAZING and a phenomenal read but I think she outdid herself with the first two. Bummer she is done writing books.

Jessica said...

We definitely have the EXACT same taste in books! I've also read the first two of her books and have just started her third. I don't like it quite as much as the other two... yet. Maybe it'll grow on me a little bit more. I also just bought "L.A. Candy" by Lauren.... and how can someone NOT love Nicholas Sparks?!

Krystal said...

Congrats! We definitely are reading the same books this summer! I just started Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang!

Kelly Marie said...

Okay so I've read them all except the Nicholas Spark books and I LOVEDDD them all!! I started to read Something Blue but I hated that character so much in Something Borrowed I couldn't get through it. LA Candy was also good (both Lauren Conrad's books are enjoyable, light reads). I also just bought the new Emily Giffin book today & it looks SO good. Obviously I love reading, especially chick-lit hahaha. Are you there vodka is the best out of ALL of Chelsea Handler's books.

I recommend Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster (I have a slight...super intense love for her and all her memoirs).

Okay sorry for the longest comment ever. hahah :) Have a good day lady!!

That’s great that you have a little break and can relax a bit. Your grades sound great and it’s nice to know that you can relax this summer. I’ve heard that Chelsea Handler’s books are hysterical and that the Emily Griffin series is also really great. Enjoy!

P.S. I left you an award on my blog!

Meg said...

I loved Something Borrowed and The Rescue. Enjoy your much deserved break!

Elizabeth said...

What a great feeling for you!! now you have some free time!!!! So happy for you!!! I have been MIA lately, but now catching up on you!! yay!!!!! Hope you had a nice weekend!!

Adorably Distracted... said...

yay!! Congrats on the A and B! I wanted to read the first two so you'll have to let us know if you like them. I'm reading The Choice, by Nicholas Sparks now and it's pretty good. I've also read the Emily Griffin books and they are very good! She just came out with another one and I think Something Borrowed they are making into a movie with Kate Hudson!

@Nataliekbeats said...

Congratulations on being done! I have one week left of school and then I fly to Espana. I do love Chelsea Handler but my favorite authors are Oscar Wilde and Virginia Wolff. You should check out some of their books. Congrats again on graduating :)

Jamie Pickle said...

I really liked Confession of a Shopaholic, Cocktails for Three and Everyone Worth Knowing.
Enjoy your summer!!

Christa said...

Oh I LOVE all the books by Emily Giffin! My cousin just bought all the Chelsea books...I may have to borrow them!

I'm from Baltimore too! What a small world. So glad to come across you. I love Something Borrowed, Something Blue. Also love Baby Proof of hers. I also love Nicholas Sparks books, but haven't read that one before though. Hope you like them!

xoxo

Let's see.. I've read BOTH Emily Giffin books and highly recommend. I loved the Rescue too but it sorta lost my interest. I also just read the new Emily book: Heart of the Matter. I read it in ONE day. No lie; that good!

Mrs. B said...

Hey Brittany! I just found your blog through another one that I was reading...it's adorable! :) I'm a huge book fan, too, and we definitely have the same taste in a books. Love all of Emily Giffin's books!

I just wanted to say hello! I hope you have a great weekend!
