Hey There CHICKIES!!!

I want to talk to you about Jennifer Crusie.

She's probably one of my favorites...Whenever I am in the mood for fun, lightweight chick reading, I have never failed with her.
A Couple of my faves by Jennifer Crusie are

1. Agnes and The Hitman (she wrote this one with Bob Mayer)
I promise I have never, ever read a book that made me laugh out loud
like this one did. I actually had tears running down my cheeks.
Cranky Agnes is one of my all time favorite heroines,
a regular girl with a great big streak of crazy in her.

2. Faking It there is a whole lot going on in this one and
it is SO much fun! This is also one of her older books. Tilda and Davy are so fun together and again I totally cracked up the whole way through.
I love that Jennifer's characters always remind me of actual people I know.
I would also recommend the following Crusie books when you're looking for some reading fun and laughs! And just so you know, there is always nookie...
Bet me
Fast Women
Crazy For you
Welcome to Temptation
Getting Rid of Bradley

I'm sure the other ones are great too I just haven't gotten to them yet..If you've read them feel free to tell me what you think!

I've got a very gently read (just by me) Hardback copy of

Jeanne said...

Getting Rid of Bradley is my alltime favorite by her. I gotta tell you I read it when it was first released back in the day as a Harlequin Temptation. I knew she was destined for great things and kept that original edition. Charlie all Night is another favorite, also originally a HT.
