6. Peter & Max: A Fables Novel by Bill Willingham and Steve Leialoha: I heard about this novel and got really excited. I love the way Willingham writes. It's a tale of brother against brother fighting over a birthright. It switches between past and present very nicely. It's a fast read, and I really liked it.

7. Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin: The movie had just came out and my sister was raving about it. She's read a bunch of Emily Griffin books and was insisting that I read this. It was pretty good for "chic lit". (I fucking hate that term). I liked it even though I thought the main character was a spineless wimp. It centers around a good girl that's lived by the book who ends up having an affair with her best friend's fiancee. (who was actually more of a frenemy). The second book in the series is from the best friend's point of view and I really want to read that one because she seemed more interesting.

8. Hand Jive: American Sign Language for Real Life by Janna M. Sweenie and David W. Boles: I'm trying to brush up on my ASL, so I decided to give this another read. I liked it just as much as the first time, but understood it way more this time.

9. Stiff: The Curious Life of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach: Yeah, don't try to read this during your lunch break. What was I thinking? Actually, I'm squeamish as hell, so I have no idea why the hell I even decided to read this book. But, that being said, it's a very good book. Who knew cadavers led such an interesting life? The author has a great voice and I love the witty footnotes.
