Enthusiam, by Polly Shulman

Do you have a friend who seems to have a different craze every week? Meet Julie. In Enthusiam, by Polly Shulman, Julie's friend Ashleigh gets them into lots of trouble...and excitement. Over time, Julie finds hereself in sticky love situations, including a mysterious poet who leaves love poems outside her window. Will Julie ever find her true love? I don't really recommend this book to anyone wanting a fascinating read. The book was very predicatable, and I found it hard to read each chapter without skipping a few pages now and then. Having said that, Enthusiam presents love dilemas in a cute, playful manner, and is probably best suited for the younger crowd.

Beautiful Stranger, by Zoey Dean

Beautiful Stranger, by Zoey Dean, is an A-List book. The characters in this book are full of drama, wealth, and beauty. This book is full of romance, adventure, excitement, and gossip! In the story, Anna packs up her Louis Vuitton luggage and takes her best friend Samantha away from the drama world of Los Angeles to college life at Yale. There she goes to her hometown in the Upper East Side. During her time in the upper east side, she runs into a fellow classmate and falls in love. She realizes thatt he was the one for her for all time! This is a great book. I suggest this book to people who like drama, excitement, and especially romance. This book is one of New York's best selling books, so that tells you that is a wonderful book. Once you read it, you can't let go, it's that fun to read!
