Dusty Reads (#1)

Dusty Reads is a weekly meme, hosted by Giselle at Xpresso Reads, featuring a book that has been sitting unread on your home shelf for some time. Books don't have to be an "x" years old. If you had the books for a few months without reading it, it's dusty!

I have A LOT of dusty books but I'll start off with just two for now. First up, P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

Summary from Goodreads: "Holly couldn't live without her husband Gerry, until the day she had to. They were the kind of young couple who could finish each other's sentences. When Gerry succumbs to a terminal illness and dies, 30-year-old Holly is set adrift, unable to pick up the pieces. But with the help of a series of letters her husband left her before he died and a little nudging from an eccentric assortment of family and friends, she learns to laugh, overcome her fears, and discover a world she never knew existed." 

Playing with Boys: A Novel

Summary from Goodreads:"It's a jungle out there--in Los Angeles, that is, where the tangle of freeways and ingrained insincerity can make a girl feel very alone, no matter how fabulous the weather is or how cute the clothes at the South Coast Plaza mall. With very different styles and attitudes, Marcella, Olivia, and Alexis are trying to crack the code in L.A, trying to snare love and success. But first they have to come together--to make their marks and plan the fun they're going to have along the way. 

Marcella is a hot, sharp young television actress who's barely able to enjoy the life she's bought for herself and certainly isn't enjoying her body, which is never quite perfect enough. Olivia, whose life revolves around her toddler son, Jack, is tethered to her suburban mommy track so tightly she can almost forget the horrible thing that happened to her family when she was a child herself. Alexis is a musicians' manager with a smart mouth, an ample body, and loads of style but barely enough self-esteem to fill a Prada card case. And the boys in their lives? Marcella's had about enough of them throwing themselves at her; Olivia's boy is her son; and Alexis is still searching, not for a boy this time, but for a man."

I've been dying to read both books but unfortunately something else always comes along that catches my attention. I do hope to get to them both some time in the near future.
