Pretties
by Scott Westerfield-  This book suffered from second book syndrome. The first book in the trilogy, Uglies, was good. This one is mostly setting things up for resolution in the third book.

The Ranch
by Danielle Steele-  This was another thrift store find. I got it because it took place in Wyoming and I need that for the Where are you reading challenge. Three former college roomates meet up at a dude ranch when their lives are imploding. Of course they are all rich and glamorous and important.  Of course, their love lives improve. The end really annoyed me though. I didn’t like the choices one character made.

Charlie All Night
by Jennifer Crusie-  Allie was the producer and girlfriend of the drive time DJ at a local radio station. Then he dumped her and she ended up having to work with the new temporary 10 PM-2 AM DJ, Charlie. Allie knows that she can make him a star but Charlie doesn’t want to be. All he is interested in is making it through his temp job and Allie.

This was a cute light romance.

From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsberg – I loved this book as a kid. I remember it being magical even if I couldn’t remember exactly what it was about. I was really excited to reread this.

I was so disappointed. I kept waiting for it to get wonderful and magical. I just… didn’t. I don’t know what I loved about it as a kid. It was pretty boring as an adult.

Has anyone else reread this as a grown-up?
