Gotham Diaries

OOH-LA-LA, do I have a book to share with you!! If you enjoy saucy books with twists and turns, I suggest Gotham Diaries be your next read.

Overview: A clever, tantalizing absorbing work of social satire by Tonya Lewis Lee and Crystal McCrary Anthony, who guide you through a world of luxury, class, style and extravagance with an incredible view of Manhattan. From the bedroom to the boardroom, to the art world, to the philanthropic jet set, to the hottest spots, this heartfelt, entertaining story explores seduction, scandal, excess, betrayal, desire, dreams and deception through one of-a-kind characters.
"A richly absorbing Tale of Manhattan's upper crust packed with sex, lies and backstabbing", says E. Lynn Harris

I rate this book 3 1/2 stars; in my opinion it is a well thought out and fabulously written book, that kept me intrigued from start to finish. Just when I thought I knew how the story would end, it had a surprising twist. To read more about this book and the authors visit
their website GothamDiaries.

What good books have you recently read???



Disclosure: I have not been asked to promote this book, nor have I made any gains by doing so.

Well that book sounds great! I don't seem to have much time for pleasure reading at the moment, but that will all change soon enough! Once I can keep my eyes open long enough, I'll give this a push on my book list. Thanks! x

I feel so ashamed that I don't read much... not in the past four years. I would love to grab a new book and get started now- I've got a long list of recommendation from friends already!

Have a great day! Thank you very much for following my Life in Mac blog!

Oooh sounds good.

I am currently reading "Handle with Care" by Jodi Picoult - I love her books.

Have just finished for our bookclub "The Slap" by Christos Tsiolkas a contemporary Australian novelist. Its about a man who slaps a child who is not his own at a backyard BBQ and how it effects the group of people who attended. Very provocative - definately gets you talking.

I just finished "Educating Esme," a diary of a first year teacher in an inner city school. I received it to do a review which is coming soon. But, the short and long of it is that I loved it even when she was sharing an ugly truth about a situation.

Never saw this one and I must admit, I was an avid reader until I had kids. Now, it's either pick up a good book or blog...and I'm choosing the latter! :)

I love to read. Reading is a must for me every day, it's part of my daily routine. Right now I am reading "Writing Down the Bones - Freeing the Writer Within" by Natalie Goldberg. It's a classic on writing memoir.

Thanks for the recommendation.
