Here is my March read list:
Ten Big Ones-Janet Evanovich
Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban- J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire- J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix-J.K. Rowling
Handle With Care- Jodi Picoult
Bright Lights, Big As*-Jen Lancaster
Jen is so funny. This book picks up after Bitter. She is in between writing the book and getting it actually published. The things that this women puts her husband through makes me smile. Their trips to the store, her trips to the gym, her job hunting, and her trip to the library made me laugh so much that I cried.
Jen says the things that everyone is thinking in their heads, but don't want to say. She is direct and personable at the same time.
I will read Such a Pretty Fat.
The Fifth year at Hogwarts and it is an interesting one. I liked this book despite it being darker than the rest. This book really showed me that the group is growing into adults now. Harry and the lot are 15 and are showing their teen angst. Harry has gone through a lot in the last 4 years and during this 5th year it shows. The characters just keep growing and I just keep liking them even more. J.K. Rowling really can write. Even the Characters I hate are written so well that I love to hate them.
The friendship between Ron, Harry, and Hermione just keeps growing if that is possible. They remind me of a little family and I am sure that is how they feel about each other too.
A lot of questions are answered in this book. This book to me is a lot more character driven than plot driven and I think that is why I like it so much. We get a little more inside their heads.
I can't wait to get to #6.
To add to the insult of my nonsexed status, I returned to my room to discover that Call Me Chantalle had tied one her toe shoes on the doorknob, her way of letting me know she was "getting her wettins on." Unspecified intimate moment # 6. Ack.
Second Helpings- Megan McCafferty

This week's question was suggested by Janet:
How about, “What’s the worst ‘best’ book you’ve ever read — the one everyone says is so great, but you can’t figure out why?”
The one that comes to my head is We Need To Talk About Kevin. I remember everyone raving about it so I went out and bought it. Ugh. It took me 3.5 weeks to read it and I can usually finish 2 books in a week. I would choose to watch tv and do anything else then to pick that book up. I ended up finishing it because I thought I was missing something. This book made me change my rule about finishing books that I am just not into. It also made me go get a library card.

The third Harry Potter book, Wow. I loved this book so much. The emotions that are shown in the book are amazing. The relationships between the characters are evolving even more. Harry gets some back story about his parents and that is great.
There are so many twists in this book that I never would have guessed. There are new characters and old that are involved in the action. I loved Lupin's character and was glad that he was there for Harry.
I know I am probably the last person on the earth to read this series so I wont do to much reviewing, but I will say that I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.

"That guy recognized you. He knew who you were. And it wasn't because he saw you in the lot just now, either. None of them saw us in the lot. That guy was no-shit evil, and he knew who you were."
