Recently I finished Emily Giffin's novel Baby Proof, which means I have officially read all of her novels and have to wait until SPRING 2010 for The Heart of the Matter to come out (you can read a sneak preview of that book HERE). I have no idea how I am going to wait that long and am currently writing her a letter regarding how she needs to get on it and get these books pumped out at a faster rate.
I love Emily Giffin novels because I'm pretty sure she can read my mind. She constantly takes note of life's idiosyncrasies in a manner that makes me go "I KNOW! I TOTALLY THINK THAT TOO!" The other aspect of her novels that I enjoy is that she makes her lead characters so ridiculously flawed that I am in absolute turmoil throughout the whole book until the end where everything seems to work out just fine (as all good books should).
That being said, this was one of my least favorite of her books. I didn't really understand where the book was going. I felt like the plot of the whole book really should have only taken up a couple chapters and as I kept reading I kept thinking "what is this book about?" That being said, while the overall plot of the book left something to be desired, the characters in the book were fabulous foils of each other and I stayed entertained despite the lackluster overall plot.
Now I'm off to Half Price Books to find my next round of reading material...
