Book 7: Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham

Lauren Graham is a woman that can take a character and make you fall in love with her. She did it with Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls, she did it with Sarah Braverman on Parenthood, she did it with Franny Banks in her novel Someday, Somday Maybe, and she has done it again with herself in Talking as Fast as I Can.

Book 6: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

This book is a necessary observation on the horrid culture surrounding rape and sexual assault. If those things make you uneasy or are too vulgar, GET OVER IT!

Book 5: Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige

This book was a little better than the last in some ways, but not as good in others. I would highly recommend reading it for pleasure, but it loses some of its charm about halfway through.

This one is great because you can present this to your teens, kids, parents, siblings, partners, etc. It might just get them to read something.
