The Beach House

The Beach House, Jane Green.

This novel took place in Nantucket, MA, and now I want to move there! I've never been there but have heard it's beautiful. Something unusual about this book was that it was written entirely in the present - normal for a chick lit novel, but it was more just a "regular book" than chick lit. Jane Green has written a bunch of other novels as well, none of which I've read, but this book was a very good read - I finished it in a day or two.

Hollywood Car Wash

Hollywood Car Wash, by Lori Culwell.

A nice, breezy chick lit novel. The Michigan scenes were set at U of M, which was kind of funny, but I feel like the author didn't really do her research on it - one line depicts the lead character crossing the "quad", and if I (or any Michigan student or grad, really) was writing this book, they would've definitely said "Diag".

Funny book overall, though, and interesting peek at the "Hollywood lifestyle" that is so publicized in American society today.

The Music Teacher

The Music Teacher, by Barbara Hall.

Apparently she's written some books for teens too. Excellent book ... makes you think about life. Being a violin player, I particularly enjoyed it (the narrator/main character is a violin teacher).

The Visibles

The Visibles, by Sara Shepard.

Also the author of the "Pretty Little Liars" series for teens.
