Just finished reading Bossypants from Tina Fey. After reading Kelly Oxford's Everything's Perfect When You Are a Liar, I though it would be similar, but it was poorly written, all over the place mess. The stories didn't even make sense. Kelly's was a hundred times funnier.

Started reading Empress Of Fashion, A life Of Diana Vreeland by Amanda Mackenzie Stuart.

Vreeland was famous for "updating" her myth, we all get it, but that does not mean that one has to base the entire book on what was said, and what was "most possibly" true! Any real investigative journalist would do best to find facts and present them as such, without having to point out the difference to Vreeland's take at every other sentence.

Fourth chapter in, and i am terribly annoyed, but what a marvelous woman she was, even without "spiked" up anecdotes.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

This is such a fantastic read, I'm almost done and it's already made me cry three times and has brought a smile to my face numerous times too. The storyline and style of writing reminds me a bit of one of my favorite books, 84 Charing Cross Road.

I shall I'm still reading it, but close to finishing It is a very enjoyable read so far. My edition has some "ending notes" by the editor, saying what was meant to happen.
