How about a third for Frederica? I know, everyone here shies away from "romance", but really, it's a fun book and quite witty. And misdirection it certainly is.

I will third Frederica and Dog On It. Not sure I can get either at my library (no time to check recently) but the more the merrier.

Worth a look, Dazrin. I know King County has both, because I'm on the wait list for Dog Gone It and checked -- Frederica doesn't even have a wait list. I already own it, however, from one of the big Heyer discount binges. Frederica is also KU, so you should be able to find a way.

Ooops! Am I too late to nominate something for my own theme ?

How about Money by Martin Amis. He's long been one of my favourite authors. About Money:

Quote:
This is the story of John Self, consumer extraordinaire. Rolling around New York and London, he makes deals, spends wildly and does reckless movie-world business, all the while grabbing everything he can to sate his massive appetites: alcohol, tobacco, pills, pornography, a mountain of junk food and more. Ceaselessly inventive and thrillingly savage, this is a tale of life lived without restraint; of money, the terrible things it can do and the disasters it can precipitate.

One of Time’s 100 best novels in the English language—by the acclaimed author of Lionel Asbo: State of England and London Fields

Money was hailed as "a sprawling, fierce, vulgar display" (The New Republic) and "exhilarating, skillful, savvy" (The Times Literary Supplement) when it made its first appearance in the mid-1980s. Amis’s shocking, funny, and on-target portraits of life in the fast lane form a bold and frightening portrait of Ronald Reagan’s America and Margaret Thatcher’s England.

It's a shame you were late, orlok, that would have been an interesting one to add to the list. From the high number of 1s and 5s on the Amazon ratings it seems to be a book that people either love or hate, which might have made for some interesting discussion.

I like Martin Amis, too (but not as much as I like his dad - his books, that is, as he seems a reprehensible person).

Kingsley Amis was undoubtedly something of a swine. But he could write, that's for sure.

I listened to one of the nominated books, What Was She Thinking? by Zoe Heller. What a weird little book!
Spoiler:
It was going along so nicely, and then, BAM! It just ended. If not for the final credits, I would have thought the last part hadn't downloaded. I wanted more of a resolution.
