Robin reads Fall reads : Olivia Joules & the overactive imagination, White as Snow, The Birth of Venus, Portrait of a Killer, Gothic Tragic

Olivia Joules and the overactive imagination / Helen Fielding.From the author of bridget jones. A silly fluffy read. Great fun. Actually, I liked it much better than Bridget Jones.

The devil wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger Ok, I must have had some of the worst bosses in the history of the world, as this person didn’t seem THAT bad to me.
