For the girl who owns all the DVDs already and probably bought the new collector’s edition the day it came out, supplement their obsession with the insider’s guide to the show’s fashion, quotes and memorable moments. Filled with glossy pictures and interviews with the cast, the hardcover version is even bound in hot pink faux alligator skin.

Read in Style at Candy Covered Books

Candy Covered Books Logo

We wanted to share with you a recent find of ours: Candy Covered Books, whose mission it is to help you find your next must-read book.  Featuring book reviews of women’s fiction, Candy Covered Books combines reviews from professional and amateur sources to create a single rating.

Candy Covered Books started as a Book Club for Two, so to speak, as co-founders Rosa and Liza would recommend books to each other as students at UC Berkeley.  After a couple really bad books, they decided that they needed a way to identify the Good books.  Rosa industriously created a spreadsheet to add books and reviews and calculate a rating for each book.  Rosa and Liza then started sharing the spreadsheet with friends, and it started to gain momentum.  Pretty soon their friends and friends of their friends were asking the duo to email them updated versions and these friends started adding to it. Eventually, and at the urging of their husbands, Rosa and Liza set up a website and database to manage the book reviews, and Candy Covered Books was born.

Look for more cool stuff from Candy Covered Books in the future Rosa and Liza are branching out from chick lit books to include cookbooks in the next couple months.  And after that, they’re looking into adding beauty and fashion books.  We can’t wait!
