The 6th book in the Georgia Nicolson series. This time Georgia is still torn between boys as she travels to Hamburger-a-go-go Land and tries to find Mosimo. When she gets home, all three boys suddenly start making themselves known and Georgia is torn as to who she really wants to date.

I’m starting to enjoy these even more. You can definitely feel Georgia growing up and maturing as each book goes along, and even her friends are starting to become less self involved and more helpful.

Next!

The first of the Spiderwick Chronicles. Tells the story of a family who moves into a house and the children soon find a secret room, a book, and mysterious men warning them.

It was very cute and a quick and easy read. Since I know I would like to see the movie I will probably continue the series before renting it.

One Fifth Avenue

Tells the story of a group of rich socialites who inhabit One Fifth Avenue, a very exclusive apartment building in New York. Covers the course of a year in the lives of all these neighbors who love and hate each other, through death and marriage, heartbreak and betrayal.

This is my first Bushnell book, so I’m still trying to figure out her writing style and on a scale how much I like her writing. I wanted to read Sex and the City first which would have set a better tone of what to expect, but I imagine this isn’t too far off. I tried to keep an open mind when reading.

Reader beware: explicit sexual content and description. If you’ve read your share of trashy romance novels this isn’t going to be much more than that.
