#40 Her Best Friend’s Wedding by Abby Gaines

I've been reading a lot of escapist fiction lately--I think it's my way of dealing with all the distressing news lately. Whether it's impending worldwide financial disaster or people who want to hurt as many other people as they can, there really hasn't been a lot of great news lately. So I turn to young adult fiction or romance or fairy tale retellings to take my mind off this crazy, sad world I live in.

Of the nine books listed, my favorite was Uncommon Criminals. It's the sequel to Heist Society and it fulfilled my need for a "teenagers doing impossible things" story. I enjoyed the Lovelace books but I think I may have read them too late in life for them to be as beloved as the L.M. Montgomery books or Laura Ingalls Wilder. Her Best Friend's Wedding was just a good, fun romance which I wish was fifty pages longer. I loved the interaction between the heroine and the hero.
