    i think we might be the only two who have read these, victoria! but yes, i completely agree with you, confessions was hilarious!! i absolutely LOVED the ending when she told luke off on national television (well, kind of). ahhh... that was so great. :D and that job interview where she lied about speaking finnish. hahahaha... i don't think i'll be lying about languages on my resume anymore... :angelic:

    anyway, i've just started the second one, but i'm stopping for now because i need to study for finals. but i'll definitely pick it up again once i'm flying back home for spring break! :D

    I love these books! My friend totally got me hooked on them. And I noticed the other day that the new one is finally out. I think I'm going to have to pick it up here pretty soon.

    I loved that part where she got busted for not speaking finnish.

    If you love to shop, these books are totally for you. You'll be able to relate to almost everything that is going on in them.
