An's Book Club #1: Playing with Boys, Alisa Valdes Rodriguez

Grade: A

I picked it up at the library because I had read her previous book 'The Dirty Girls Social Club' and liked that too. This book was great! It definitely falls under the category of chick lit, and was extremely easy to read, but the characters were really well developed, and even though they were all flawed, and different from me, by the end of the book, the author managed to get me to like all of them. (Which isn't an easy task!) Definitely good beach reading, and it was laugh-out-loud funny at times. Which is another rare quality for a book.

Anyone else read this? What didja think?

  1. Hey - have you seen this site?
    www.bookcrossing.com

    I haven't tried it yet... but it looks like a cool way to share books and find the unexpected treasure. Maybe I'll "release" a book into the wild this week.

  3. I did read it, it has got to be one of my favorite books of the year...The characters were really well-developed as you said, and Alisa does a great job of making her characters delightfully eclectic and unpredictable. She is the best!
