What I'm Reading



I just finished reading Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner. I'll admit that i'm a total chick lit fan, but this book missed the mark.

The story was so pathetic and so unrealistic that I couldn't help but roll my eyes at the passing of each chapter.

Jordan, the police chief launched an investigation that spanned the entire Eastern seaboard at the result of a bloody belt?

Puhlease.

The characters could have been likeable, and at times I was really intrigued by them, but moments later the author changed gears and went off the deep end.

I'm not sure that I'd recommend this one. Have you read it?

TOTALLY agreed. One of my BFFs and I checked this out of the library as an audio book when we took a road trip last summer - and we hated it!!!! I love her other books - something was just off with this one. It was absurd.

I'm kind of in the middle of this book and I totally cant get into it at all. I'm glad I am not the only one that just doesn't quite get it...

I usually love Jennifer Weiner books (and most chick lit, in general) but I'll steer clear of this one now. Thanks for the info! Right now I'm reading Spa Vacation by Theresa Alan and I feel the same way about it. It's just not that great and I'm struggling to get through it.

I'm having a harder and harder time enjoying "chick lit" type books lately. I've SEEN this book everywhere it seems, but haven't heard hardly any good reviews of it!

I haven't read this one but glad to know that! I'll skip it. I do like some of her other books though. I need some good summer reading! =)

You guys should read anything by Bret Easton Ellis. Total chick lit. You'll love it.
