#31 Love the One You're With by Emily Giffin

This is my final read for 2008 finished at 9:41pm on the 31st!

I picked up this book because I have read two others by her and really enjoyed them. In this story Ellen has moved on from a long-term relationship with Leo to marry her best friends brother Andy. All things are going well and Leo is the past until one day years later their paths cross in a New York City intersection. Ellen is faced with the decision to choose between the two and she picked wisely (at least I think so). I really enjoyed the storyline although there were some dry patches along the way. I think that this is one others can definitely relate to about the "one that got away." 4/5

#30 The Starter Wife by Gigi Levangie Grazer

So I started to watch this series on USA without even knowing that there was a book behind it. I loved this book from the first page. It is delightful to read about how shallow those in Hollywood are. I am so glad that Gracie did not let her life fall into complete shambles after being told that her husband wanted a divorce. This was a page turner that was intriguing and left me wanting more. I thoroughly enjoyed it, definitely a 5/5.

#29 New Year's Eve Murder by Leslie Meier

This is book #12 in the Tinker's Cove series and my first read. I loved my first visit to Tinker's Cove although it was brief as the majority of the story takes place in New York. The glamour of a mother-daughter makeover turned deadly when one of the editor's turned up dead. Lucy had to do her detective work to get to the bottom of it all. 4.75/5

#28 Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer

This being the 3rd and almost final installment of what has become known as the "Twilight Saga" was a good read. I think that it was better than the 2nd but the 1st is still my favorite. 4/5
