This week I'm sharing...

 You can read a really fun excerpt of the book here.

But here is the synopsis:
"Jane Harris, a successful cartoon creator, is to be the bridesmaid for her best friend Holly who is eloping to Italy with Mark. Cal Langdon, an overseas newspaper reporter, is to be Mark's best man. For Jane and Cal it is hate at first sight, although Holly and Mark are sure the two will like each other.

As they travel through Italy, the reader observes Jane and Cal's battle through email messages, blackberry text messages and Jane's travel diary.   But as they have to struggle with Italian bureaucracy in order to get a marriage licence and keep the news of the elopement from their families and friends at home who keep sending messages wondering what is going on, Jane and Cal find that despite their differences, they are having a really good time together. To their growing horror, they each begin to realize they are falling in love."

-L. Watson

It actually took me over a week to finish this book.  Normally, I can knock one out in a couple nights.  But I think this one took longer due to my busy schedule, so don't hold it against the book!  This is a great summer read.  The ending is predictable, but entertaining nonetheless.

The entire book is written from different points of view.  For example, the characters are emailing, journaling, and texting the whole time- and that's how the story is told.  But Meg Cabot definitely pulled off this style of writing well.

I would give it 3.5 stars out of 5.

I find that I really WANT to like Meg Cabot's books...but...well, I don't really. I find them to be very predictable and that's not interesting enough for me. So, you finding it predictable means I won't be tempted by her really cute covers. Seriously, she has the BEST covers and it's not fair that I don't dig her style.

I'm loving all the different genres reviewed this week!

I've never read her books, but a lot of people love them! 3.5 out of 5 isn't the best though :)

I reviewed a Meg Cabot book today too! Unfortunately it was just ok. Nothing good enough to recommend, but sometimes it's good to put a bad review out there so people don't waste their time reading a not so stellar book :)
