Title: Shopaholic Takes Manhattan (Series Book 2)

Author: Sophie Kinsella

Year: 2002

For most of the book, I was annoyed with Becky and could no longer sympathize with her blundering ways (even her chatty narrative grew tiresome and repetitive at times); however, the conclusion was outstanding, though far-fetched (but what romantic comedies aren't?) and made me want to keep reading the series.

Title: As I Lay Dying

Author: William Faulkner

Year: 1930

Complex both in its form and its psychology, this novel intrigued me greatly but also perplexed me; reading it once isn't enough to fully understand it, but I guess that's expected with Faulkner, right?
