Love, Greg and Lauren by Greg Manning - I have vivid memories of reading this memoir while running on the treadmill. It is one of the first times that I couldn't wait to run because I wanted to read so badly. Greg Manning's emails to friends and relatives are published in this book to keep them all informed about his wife, Lauren's condition. Lauren was engulfed in a ball of fire as she tried to escape the World Trade Center on September 11. Her fight to live is amazing.
The Gossip Girl series is one I started and I liked it, but I never stuck with it. If I picked it up again I would need to start all over. Kind of reminded me of a Candace Bushnell novel for teens.
Something Rising by Haven Kimmel - not as memorable for me as A Girl Named Zippy, but reading it on my list of books I finished in February of 2004 makes me curious what happened to Kimmel since the publication of her last book.
