Somehow, in all the hubbub of academic articles, I managed to forget about the awesomeness that is Accidentally Engaged by Mary Carter. Shop Friend gave it to me when I lived in London, noticing a few similarities between me and the protagonist, apparently. It remains one of my favourite books; perfect to read in summer. Or in winter, autumn or spring. I don’t like chick lit, but this qualifies as a fantastic example of Just Good Fiction.
