Sorry fo such a late answer. It totally was. It was an amazing book and I highly recommend it to everyone. I like Dreiser's books a lot and in my opinion the best would be Jennie Gerhardt and Sister Carrie, though their plot is a bit similar, I liked them the most.

- I don't understand what the all hype is about. In my opinion it was a book which concerned a very serious issue but the author tried his best to not mention its seriousness. I gave it 4 stars for the plot and the story as a whole but I was a bit dissapointed with it.

Divergent was what I needed for summer. Seriously, the plot (or maybe rather the characters) is nothing new and the writing is lousy, but it was good to switch off your brain a little bit and just enjoy reading.

- I liked the first three books better, but this one was ok too.
35. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella - I decided to re-reread the whole series because I have only read 3 of them in a very weird order (first Shopaholic and sister then Shopaholic ties the knot, then confessions of a shopaholic )and I borrowed the rest but never got to read them. I enjoyed this one a lot, even more than I did 5 years ago and I'm eager to read the rest.

i recently read the Columbine book. it was interesting, wish it had gone into the minds of the rampage killers more, and gone into more detail about their "quiet period" in the school that day.

and yeah that was totally disgusting how that mom stole another victim's story and turned it into a book "she said yes" in order to promote her "faith"

was the new khaled hosseini book a tearjerker?

Definitely not as much of a tear jerker as his previous two books, but yet another beautiful, intricate story, filled with rich character. I loved it.
