Well, I'm very disapointed in myself... I haven't finished a book in days, so I'm going to review some old ones- instead of actually finishing a book!

I read this a long time ago.

Title: Enthusiasm

Author: Polly Shulman

Summary: There is little more likely to exasperate a person of sense than finding herself tied by affection and habit to an Enthusiast." Julie knows from bitter experience: her best friend, Ashleigh, is an Enthusiast. Ashleigh's current fancy is also Julie's own passion, Pride and Prejudice, and the heroine's quest for True Love. And so Julie finds herself swept along with Ashleigh, dressed in vintage frocks and sneaking into a dance at the local all-boys' prep school. There they discover several likely candidates for True Love, including the handsome and sensitive Parr. And Julie begins to wonder if maybe this obsession of Ashleigh's isn't so bad after all. . . .

My Review: I actually read this before I read Pride and Prejudice. It made me want to. It's basically about two girls looking for their own Mr. Darcy with a cute twist. This book is perfect for a quick summer read, I read it one day on the swing on the front porch. I think I connected with Julie because MY best friend is easily obessed (as am I sometimes but don't tell anyone!). This book is for people who like funny, slightly romantic, and easy reads.

Okay I think I'll do More tomorrow!
