Reviews
Title
Husband's Secret
Author
Lane Moriarity
Genre
Fiction
Review
An interesting idea--what if you found out something terrible about someone you thought you knew--told terribly badly. The writer throws in a dozen undeveloped characters, ridiculous cooncidences, and langauge clunky enough to make me roll my eyes. No idea why this has been on the NYT list for so long.

Title
The Baby-Sitters Club: The Summer Before
Author
Ann M. Martin
Genre
Fiction/Coming of Age
Review
It talks about what happened before Kristy Thomas thought of the idea for the club/business. This is the one book I never got to read because it was not available then. Awesome book!

Title
The Star Diaries
Author
Stanislaw Lem
Genre
Science Fiction
Review
There is nobody like Stanislaw Lem (1921-2006) The Star Diaries is a great place to start. Diary entries/short stories are funny, science-y and philosophical...(he figures robots will rule humans someday.)
