Finished Dinner with Anna Karenina by Gloria Goldreich. 

I know.  It's insane.  But this is another light and fluffy book and also, I finished Tis the Season last night but didn't blog it until this morning.

Anyway.  Dinner with Anna Karenina is about six friends who are in a book club.  It was entertaining enough, but I didn't think it was that realistic.  The main plot is that Cynthia (described by another character as sort of a "prom queen" who lives a perfect life) tells her friends that she's divorcing her husband and that she kicked him out because she wants him out of the house and away from their kids.  But she won't tell them why and she's like, "Don't ask because I won't answer any questions."

These women have been friends for years and they're basically her only friends.  So it's not like she's keeping friendly acquaintances out of the loop.  I don't know.  I just feel like if I'm going to be honest with people up to the point where it's like, "I can't have this person in my house anymore," I'd say why.

And also, the copyeditor should be fired.  In the story, the characters are Cynthia, Elizabeth, Jen, Rina, Donna and Trish.  But according to the back of the book, we will be reading about Connie, Pat, Hedy, Rina, Donna and Enid.

Awkward.

Anyway.  I'm about to start a Michael Connelly mystery and I'm pretty sure I won't be finishing it tonight or tomorrow. :)
