I just finished reading another one of Jennifer Weiner's books called
Certain Girls and I have to say, she did it again! Every time I read one of her books I find myself laughing out loud! This book is a funny and poignant follow up to her book "Good in Bed". So if you haven't read "Good in Bed" read that first, it too was fantastic!

Brief Description:
Who could not fall in love with Cannie Shapiro, a smart, single, sharp witted, recovering from a bad break-up heroine of Good in Bed. She writes a book about her relationship that quickly becomes an overnight sensation and changes her life completely.

Fast forward 13 years when Cannie is married and the mother of a 12 year old girl. Joy is a typical adolescent daughter who is embarrassed by everything her mother is and does. Cannie is a mother who only wants to protect her child basically from the world. When Joy discovers Cannie's book and starts reading what must be her mother's life story, with more sexual details than she'd like to imagine, she begins questioning everything she knows about herself, her mom and her family.

An absolute worthy sequel!

The book I'm reading now is Rosie Dunne by Cecilia Ahern. She is also the author of P.S. I Love You. I adored that book. Seriously it was one of my favorites. Now some of you may remember that was a recent movie. I have to say I did enjoy the movie but thought there were too many key things left out from the book! In my opinion the book will always be better. This book is a must read!

I won't tell you anything about Rosie Dunne until my review, which will be coming soon!

Happy Thursday and Happy Reading!

I read "Good in Bed" a few years ago and enjoyed it. Weiner writes with a voice that is easy to read and most importantly knows how to laugh. Great suggestions!!!
