The Classy Bookshelf

So, I've still been on quite the reading kick lately.  The drop in temps has me forgoing wedding planning (shocker!) to cozying up in bed (at 5 pm, no less) to read, read, read.

Maybe if I got a teenage fiction novel about wedding planning?  Put it on the to-do list.

 Green Heart by Alice Hoffman is a short trilogy in the Hunger Games-type style.  It was good and I read them in just a couple days. 


I've always been a huge Sophie Kinsella fan (Shopaholic books, anyone?) and I've Got Your Number is exactly what you'd expect.   I really enjoyed this one - even with the predictable ending.  And, bonus!, the main character in this book is engaged.  So, lots of wedding-planning advice there.  (Spoiler: not really). 


When I heard Andy Cohen was penning a memoir of his life, I know it will surprise you all that I was first in line.  (Not really, but I love me a good Housewife reunion.)  So, I was excited when Mr. RH snagged me a copy to devour. 

And I did totally devour Most Talkative - it's a great look at Andy's life and how he worked his way to Bravo-super-stardom.  And I like him 200% more now than I did before, which is saying something.  His life ain't all weave-pulling and Housewives

See You at Harry's by Jo Knowles was, I'm not even gonna lie, a pretty sad book.  The book itself was good, but the content matter was actually a little heartbreaking. 

I totally enjoyed it in the moment (when I wasn't crying)... but needless to say - it should come with a warning and a box of tissues.

Are you reading anything good lately?  And is it just me or is fall THE perfect time for book-reading?  Somebody get me a mug of warm cider, mmmm.

I can't wait to pick up that Sophie Kinsella one, I love her writing. I read the Shopaholic ones and loved it...
Thanks for the tips!

Fall is definitely an awesome time for reading -- and I start transitioning away from my beloved chick lit and picking up "heavier" books, like classics.

I have sort of a love/hate relationship with Sophie Kinsella (love her, hate the Madeleine Wickham books), but she is definitely good when you want a quick, entertaining read!
