Me vs Me

I asked some of my friends for some chick-lit recommendations, other authors that maybe I didn't think to look up, or perhaps even an author that I had never heard of before.

My friend Lauren R. told me about Sarah Mlynowski, and recommended a couple of her books. I went to the bookstore, and there weren't even any books at all by this author! I went on my library's website, and looked up the author there, and found a few different books that were available. I looked each one up and read the synopsis of each, and made my decision to read Me vs. Me.

Here's the synopsis that sold me - oh and the author is originally from Montreal ;)
From Barnes and Noble (no that's not the bookstore I initially went to):
Gabby Wolf has pretty much, almost definitely (this close!) come to a decision: She's trading in Phoenix (nice but uneventful life with boyfriend) for Manhattan (dream job as producer for highly successful news show). Then Cam swoops in and gives her a sparkling engagement ring, making her decision even more impossible. Husband vs. career. Vera Wang wedding dress vs. sexy first-date outfits. Planting roots in Phoenix vs. playing the field in Manhattan... She wishes she didn't have to decide, that she could have it all.

She never expects her wish to come true.

Suddenly Gabby's living two lives. Whenever she falls asleep in one, she wakes up in the other. She's got the best of both worlds--what more could a girl ask for? Right?

This fantastic (and fantastical) new novel from bestselling author Sarah Mlynowski will have you flipping pages as quickly as Gabby flips lives to find out which Gabby reigns supreme in the battle of Me vs. Me.

Wow,I decided to click on your blog randomly today and saw this! Did you end up reading the book? Hopefully you liked it :) Now that I think about it, I've maybe outgrown her books a bit at this point, they're sometimes a little silly, but I started reading them in my early 20s and thought they were fun.
