Books #46 and #47 - Diary of a Working Girl and Devil in the Junior League

The first book, Diary of a Working Girl, was a story of a freelance writer who pitches an idea to Cosmo of finding Mr. Right in a mere 2 months in what she considers the land of milk and honey, the area of finance - which literally drips with men. Of course things don't go her way but the heroine in the book is so likeable and resembles each of us in some way that you gotta love her.

The second book, Devil in the Junior League, was fabulous. I had eyed the book up at the Barnes a few times and sat it back on the shelf each time. I got a gift card for my birthday, so I snatched it up. I loved it. The main character is left by her husband who not only takes up with a sad assed looking chick and obsconds with all of her money. She ends up having to take up with her neighbor who is (GASP) a Yankee and a rude one at that because he is a lawyer and just sneaky enough to find her weasel of a husband. The deal however is that her payment for his services is that she needs to get his equally tacky wife into the Junior League. I loved this book. I zipped through it in about 2 1/2 days or so. I highly recommend if you see it in the Barnes.

You're gonna hit 50 books probably by the time I hit the publish button. Are you going to keep on reading or just quit for the year? :-)

All I have time to do is just read your reviews. At least they're free.
