::Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella::
Meet the charming Becky Bloomwood from the Shopaholic novel series. A very good friend in college recommended this for light reading. A year after coming to Dubai, I finally laid my hands on them. Oh, Becky is the perfect companion by the beach as you read her adventures in shopping.

::The Brethren by John Grisham::
This is not a great book but thoroughly entertaining. Unlike the usual Grisham formula, there is no showdown in the courtroom. The Brethren is about three crooked judges (who call themselves The Brethren) serving their time in federal prison. They unofficially handle inmate disputes within the fences.
The Brethren needed money when they go out of prison eventually so they began a scam, placing tiny adds on the back of magazines, targeting gay, wealthy men. They exchange letters until their penpals are identified before sending extorion letters.The Brethren succeeded on many occasion until they conned the wrong man and got the CIA to watch them.
The characters are not interesting but how Grisham explained their actions and the details of their scam is absolutely funny!
