Trials of Tiffany Trott by Isabel Wolf

Started reading this thinking it was another Bridget Jones ripoff. Grew aggravated with the whole “must find a man” element. And then the book started to change, you realize Tiffany wants a bit more out of life, she’s not going to settle for whatever, whoever. Then this becomes one of the funniest, cleverest books ever. Really loved it, made me feel good about life and singlehood and such. Tiffany is brilliant, should get a series of her own. I want more.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

A bit darker, which I appreciated. This is the point when Harry starts to become a bit out of control – much more so in book 5. The beginning scenes, the intro of the death eaters are horrifying. And the death of Cedric, wrenching. I was shocked. Great book though.
