Book Wars ( 31)

Fanboy and Goth Girl took the big prize last week. This week, all you need is love. And I've upped the stakes! FIGHT!

Nicola always gets what she wants.

Nicola Sparks, sixteen and an orphan, is ready to dive headlong into her first glittering London society season. She's also ready to dive headlong into the arms of handsome and debonair Lord Sebastian Bartholomew. Nicola's dream is a proposal from the viscount—a dream she's about to realize at last! So naturally, Nathaniel Sheridan's insinuations about her fiancé's flawed character annoy her mightily.

But when Nicola's natural curiosity gets the best of her, she begins to piece together a few things for herself. To her great surprise, Nicola realizes she's had the wrong viscount all along . . . but is it too late to make things right? (from


Top ten things Samantha Madison isn't ready for:

10. Spending Thanksgiving at Camp David

9. With her boyfriend, the president's son

8. Who appears to want to take their relationship to the Next Level

7. Which Sam inadvertently and shockingly announces live on MTV

6. While appearing to support the president's dubious policies on families, morals, and yes, sex

5. Juggling her new after-school job at Potomac Video

4. Even though she already has a job as teen ambassador to the UN (that she doesn't get paid for)

I have to say that I prefer Victoria and the Rogue (the Rogue is sawoon!) to Nicola and All-American Girl to Ready or Not but I guess I would pick Nicola of these two. I'm so excited to compare Meg Cabot books; additionally my favorite is Teen Idol, if anyone needs a recommendation!

Ready or Not.

I love Meg Cabot but I prefer Nicola and the viscount so much more!
I am a new book blogger. All suggestions will be appreciated.
Thank you

I haven't read Ready or Not so I can't sincerely compare...but I liked All-American Girl better than Nicola and the Viscount so I guess I'm rooting for Ready or Not. I should read/reread both books though, since I did like them once upon a time. :D
