I have been on kind of a bad streak with the books I've been listening to on my iPod lately, which is very disappointing. (Currently, however, I've got one that's better, thank goodness!).
These were more books I got from a suggestions list. I think it was "If you liked Bridget Jones's Diary then you'll like these". I really did like that book, but I guess it must have had something these didnt' These two books weren't terrible, and both had some funny parts, especially Altar Egos, but overall, they just weren't that great.
The titles were
Man Eater by Gigi Lavangie Grazer and Altar Egos by Cathy Lette.
These books are ok beach fare, but not on the top of my recommended list.
