      This is my story: I was waiting for my mom in a Foley's Department Store one afternoon. I had done my shopping and was bored, so I sat in the furniture department while she finished. The voracious reader I am, I picked up this book (hardback, original print, discarded from a library in New York) which was displayed on the breakfast tray artfully arranged on the display bed and sat on the display couch to bubblegum my mind away until Mom came back. (Note: I was 27 years old, not 13 as you may hav [...]

      This series is doing me so much good--it's like a hot bath and a cup of cocoa, says the angel on my shoulder. And then the devil on my other shoulder has just resigned himself to sitting quietly and chewing his tail while I read these. Which is good enough, coming from him. This is the one where Beany gets all uppity and pissed off coz she feels like she has to be the problem-solver all the time and never gets to be the darling, which is a delusion I suffer as well. So she tries to have things g [...]

      I felt I was at Beany and Carlton's wedding yet again, and howbeautiful it was. The books were written long ago but the joy,love, and sorrow they contain are relevant today. A true tripdown memory lane for me, and I would love to have all my friends on get to know Beany and love her as I do!

    4. Kelly on said:

      I love this book, but generally want to smack all the Malones plus Carlton. Would it have been so hard for anyone in Beany's life to take 5 minutes and listen to her talk about a wedding? Apparently so.

    5. Miki on said:

      YA literature has changed so much over the years. This book has no vampires, no dystopian societies where people kill each other, no angst and gloomy depression, not even any relevant social meaning. It's just sweet, with a happy ending. And sometimes that's all you need.

      A book in the Beany Malone series that I love. Carl is about to graduate from college and at last Beany can get married. Beany has always felt like she was in the background among her more colorful brother and sisters so she thinks that at last she has the right to be the center of something- her wedding. However, the roof needs replaced and the never wealthy Malones can't afford a wedding. In waltzes Beany's step-grandmother who has a wedding planning business. Even though Beany's father says t [...]

      I love series that follow a protagonist through for years and years, especially as they grow and change! The thing is, Beany seems pretty much like her adolescent self here. It doesn't really feel like she has matured a lot, and that makes me think that she's probably not ready for marriage. I find it odd that Beany and Carlton are getting married in less than two months and still haven’t planned their wedding. The Mary Fred + Ander plot was a bit predictable, but I still liked it. I see nothi [...]

    8. Emily on said:

      Not my favorite in this series. For the sake of the plot all the maturity Beany has acquired over the course of many many books completely vanishes, so that we can have a narrative arc about Beany learning that superficial things are not what's really important. Something she's learned at least twice, I think.

    9. CLM on said:

      Why shouldn’t Beany have a nice but not overly lavish wedding? I like that Beany is (usually) frugal and finances are often a concern in LMW’s books but the plot of this one never made a lot of sense to me.

    10. Mary M on said:

      Oh dear, misunderstandings come between Beany and her beau who would have thunk it? ;) That predictability aside, it was a sweet book with lovely moments leading up to Carl's graduation from uni and the planned wedding. Liked the bits with Mary Fred --- and Johnny and Miggs!

    11. Betsy on said:

      This may be the most purely satisfying book in the Beany Malone series.

    12. Alexandra on said:

      Maybe it's just that the standard American wedding more commonly became more formal sometime around the 1980s, but it didn't quite make sense to me as to why so many people (her family, friends, and fiance) expected Beany to have a super basic, informal do. Nothing Nonna suggested for Beany seemed outrageous to me, and described pretty much all of my friends' and family weddings I've been to in the last 30 years (with the possible exception of some of the receptions were held in church halls, bu [...]

      A light read, an enjoyable romance bookReview "Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin A definite "Sex in the city" book about young professionals trying to build careers and find true love in the Big Apple. Scenes stretgh from NYC to the Hamptons to London and back.As I started reading this chick book, I thought I am too old and have turned into disapproving prude. Too much sleeping around. Then I thought how in my twenties I was aware of the huge double standard that existied in USA and wonder whe [...]

      I'm disappointed in the further books of Beany Malone! There isn't a book it seems, where she can't have a peaceful time-she continaully gets into scrapes, or on everyone's bad side! And it felt like the author was just trying to tie up lose ends, close to the end of the series Johnny's SUDDEN marriage for instance, and Ander's just now returning I didn't even finish this one, because it was too disappointing!
