    1. This is my first Slightly book by Markham and I'm a little bummed that I missed Slightly Married. I liked where this was going, but the last 30 pages where blech. I might give her another try though.


    2. This was, by far, my least favorite book in the "Slightly" series. I felt that this book served no real purpose. Tracey seemed even more neurotic, whiny and lost than she had in previous books and there was very little of what made the first book good--the other characters (Raphael, Kate, Buckley, Yvonne, Brenda & Latisha). I felt that most of this book was left open ended--I mean, what was the purpose of giving Tracey's mom an illness? What was the purpose of Stefania in general? What was t [...]



    3. Speed reading stillOf all the books in the series, while this one might have been the strongest writing, it's all the one I liked least and has finally convinced me that if any more come out, I'm ignoring them.I justn't like Tracey. She's.r happy. She's one of those people that no matter what she gets out of life, it's not enough. She pushes for things and the second she gets them, it's not enough and she wants something different. She got the dream house and suddenly was entirely miserable and [...]


    4. Slightly Suburban is part of a series of books focusing on a woman named Tracey. In this book, she is married and living in an apartment in NYC and wanting to move out to the suburbs. It was an ok book but I thought the previous ones were better. I feel like it would have been better if this book focused more on the move to the suburbs and the transition between living in NYC and the suburbs and dealing with still being able to see your friends, etc. Instead, most of this book was her realizing [...]


    5. This was a cute tale. Turns out the author has written a few other books before this one, all centering on the same character. The good news is that you don't have to read the previous novels to read this one. You can just jump in and not feel like you've missed anything. Overall, I enjoyed this book. The relationship between the two main characters is believable and the events of their lives are events that are pretty typical of many young-ish newlyweds who branch out to the suburbs. I am actua [...]


    6. This is seriously THE BEST SERIES I have ever read! I highly recommend it to everyone! I love the characters, especially Tracey. I could relate to her on so many levels it was scary, at some points I was convinced author Wendy Markham had somehow gotten into my brain and wrote about my life! I breezed through the book and was eager to start the next, and the next - by the time Suburban ended I was so sad to have to say goodbye to the storyline and characters! I still say there needs to be a fina [...]


    7. A cute book, and the author definitely left it open to add to the series. I was a little sad that many of the other characters in the series that I came to really like (Buckley, Raphael, for instance) played a much smaller role in this story than in past books. But as Tracey points out, that's what happens: people grow up and move on. When you think that this will eventually happen in our own lives, the book got a little depressing, but overall, an enjoyable enough read.


    8. I really enjoyed this series. This book wasn't as fun as the others because the life event was buying a home in the suburbs as opposed to getting engaged or married. I love the main character and her wacky family though. Also, the book ended with her finding out she's pregnant so I'm hoping for a sequel eventually. Fun and quick read. Very funny.


    9. Out of the whole series, I probably liked this one the most. Maybe second to the first book. My issue with this series is that Tracey whines.a lot. About everything. She is never confident in her decisions until the very last page of the book, and by then I'm over her story. Not sure if there will be any additional books in the series but I most likely will not read them.


    10. I liked this book more than the previous "Slightly Married" book. Tracey isn't as whiny in this book although, she still has moments where she is a little dramatic. But, in this book, she recognizes those moments. Of course, the book ends a little too perfectly but that's pretty common for this genre.


    11. I loved Slightly Suburban. It seemed a little more "hey this could really happen" than some of the previous books which was really nice. It seems like she left room for a final book which would be pretty cool. I'd like to see a little more closure with all of the characters.


    12. I was able to finish this book in one day. Just like the other slightly books, Markham brings her characters to life and creates a wonderful reading experience. I throughly enjoy reading Markhams books and look forward to more books in this series.


    13. Meh. For a desperate "I have nothing to read" purchase at Target, it was OK. The last chapter wrapped everything up too neatly and some of the main plot points never went anywhere. Still, I may be compelled to go back and read the earlier ones in the series.


    14. After being slightly disappointed by Slightly Engaged and Slightly Married, I was happy with Slightly Suburban. The story was cute, and not nearly as whiny as the last two. I believe this is the last book in the series, but I would read more if the author wrote them.


    15. Cute, fun chick-lit. Nothing earth shattering, but not disappointed that I read it. And, I always feel a little triumph when I finish a book in about 24 hours. It was an easy read, and enjoyable.


    16. The writing was good but I had trouble caring about the story. I think it is too alien to me (although I love fantasy and SciFi and that is really alien.) The characters were okay but I just didn't get into the troubles of moving to the suburbs when you live in NYC.


    17. I was expecting fluff, I wasn't expecting glaring editing mistakes. eek! The story was something I could relate to, the writing was just so-so.



    18. This was a cute, easy-read - but nothing to write home about. Maybe I would've enjoyed more if I were back in the newly-married, without-children, house-buying stage.




    19. I kept waiting for this book to get better. I felt like it was missing something, like I kept waiting for something to happen.It was hard to finish.



    20. A good entry in the 'Slightly' series. I wished for more of the novel to have actually taken place once Tracy and Jack moved to the suburbs though.


    21. This reminded me of Emily Giffin, but just wasn't as good. Plus the ending just didn't seem to line up with the rest of the book.


    22. This was entertaining, a good "chick lit" book, and a fast read. It's part of a series, so I'll have to read the rest.
