Reading Ahead: June 2103, part 5

So you're not in the mood for a thriller, or a love story, or a family saga, OR something a little more serious?  How about funny?  Can you handle funny?  I hope so, because this is the last of the June releases on my list!

The Heist, by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg.  From the book's description: "High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work . . . if [partners] O’Hare and Fox don’t kill each other first."  How can you not be intrigued?

Bad Monkey, by Carl Hiaasen.  Hiaasen is back doing what he does best--a fierce, wickedly funny tale in which the greedy and the corrupt get their comeuppance in the most ingenious, entertaining fashion. 

Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, by Lauren Weisberger.  Ten years ago, Andy Sachs quit a job that was ruining her life, a job that a million other girls would kill for.  Now, she runs a successful business and has found the love of her life, but discovering a secret on the eve of her wedding turns everything upside-down.  Karma, it so happens, really is a bitch.

I'll be back next week with some fiction from down under, in honor of Australia's Library and Information week celebration!  Enjoy the holiday weekend!
