  • Confessions of a Call Center Gal: a novel on June 29, 2011

    Wow. I loved every single freaking thing about this book! I could relate to Maddy like she was an older me, someone who loves Zac Efron (because trust me, I LOVE Zac Efron) and a night in watching reality tv. And Bridget Jones being one of my favorite movies, I fell in love with Maddy's Bridget-esque personality, never being able to get things to go exactly her way. There were parts where I would find myself laughing out loud and other times cheering Maddy on in her trials as a call center gal. This book is full of hilarious moments in the everyday life at a call center. The workers at the call center are all crazy and lovable in their own way, from a hunky Belgian to a Vietnamese gay best friend. What I also loved was how nothing ended up happening perfectly. Maddy goes through trials and things take time to happen, just like real life. I just wanted to keep on reading every second so that I could figure out who would call in next to Maddy. I got this book for review from the author as an ebook, but after reading it I know I'm going to buy the hard copy so I can escape into Maddy's hilariously sweet world whenever I want to. Confessions of a Call Center Gal is the perfect chit-lit to curl up in bed with.
  • Crushed on Aug. 09, 2011

    When I first started this book, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I felt like the Noah sisters were really immature and I thought they were in 7th or 8th grade but ended up being seniors in high school. So it took me a couple of chapters to actually like the characters, but once that happened I thought that this was a fun book to read. I thought it was cute how Kristen Crushed Zach on a dare and then ended up really falling for him, but magic made her doubt if everything was even real. The added new evil witch in town made the story suspenseful and wondering what was going to happen next. I enjoyed the magic of this book, but sometimes I felt like it was just the easy solution to some of their problems. Like something would go wrong, so they threw random magic that hadn't been mentioned yet at it and everything was fixed. Other than that part, the magic they used was cool and it was nice to see it being used in a way you know teenage girls couldn't help. Who wouldn't make guys follow them around like puppies if they had the power to? This may be a young adult book, but I'd say it was more geared to the younger YA audience. Crushed had a really cute take on magic and it was a fun story to read.
