The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - Ann Brashares

I found some more very old reviews, and thought to post them all now, so that they are once and for all all together ;).

 

Some of my friends recommended this book to me, but I wasn't blown away by the premise of four girls sharing a pair of jeans.

The book was OK, but not really something I like to read. The story was a bit simple. It's a nice read between two other books, but nothing special

40 DAYS AND 1001 NIGHTS by Tamalyn Dallal
40 Days And 1001 Nights, One Woman's Dance Through Life In The Islamic World - Tamalyn Dallal

Living 40 days in a different culture helps you understand the culture.  These are small vignettes of Tamalyn Dallal living in five countries that are with large Islamic populations.  Within each culture, Islam has been changed to take in the local customs that existed when Islam came into the area.  I thought she would live with one family for the whole 40 days but she lived in hotels, apartments, rented rooms, etc. instead of spending all her time with one family.  She met many different people.  I learned much about the cultures and countries, such as where some are and where they are near.  It is interesting and worth reading.  I just wish she had lived with one family 40 days and immersed herself in their daily lives.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - Ann Brashares I really enjoyed this, much more than I expected. I've heard of this book for years, but I never took the time because I expected it to be too aimed at the young for my tastes. It is definitely a book about and for teens, but it speaks to all ages. It makes you think about things. All of the girls are in situations where decisions have consequences. They make mistakes and have to right them. They grow and learn that everyone else has faults too. I'll continue the series.

Reading progress update: I've read 30%.
The Wild Woman's Guide to Traveling the World: A Novel - Kristin Rockaway

I'm not liking the amount of her life she is throwing out just because he's hot and sexy. I' really sick of this story line where the woman goes nuts giving up all she worked for just for "love" I hope this story changes tune

Reading progress update: I've read 239 out of 388 pages.
I'm Traveling Alone: A Novel - Samuel Bjork

I finally read the back cover of this book (I had bought it based on skimming a review without much knowledge of the plot). I've read 239 pages of this Mystery novel. the back cover of the trade paperback edition gives away a plot development that has not happened yet, even as far as I have read. this is not the first time I've encountered this phenomenon. I really hate it. I'm glad I hadn't read what is essentially a spoiler on the back of the book. just a heads-up. putting all that nonsense aside, the book is still terrific. but just read the top half of the back cover to get an idea of the story.
