    In my experience it is so hard to find chick-lit that it worthwhile. This sounds like another book that doesn’t make the cut.

      Yeah, definitely. I’m not usually a chick-lit kinda gal, but I picked this one up because I was going to be on the beach for a week.

      Indeed! I swear there were worse ones, but I should’ve marked them as I went, because I had a hard time finding a good example when I went back to write my review.

    I agree with Iris, it is very difficult to find chick lit that is worthwhile and I generally go into the books with the same expectations you had for this one. Maybe it’ll be a little funny, a little cute, and kind of get my intrigued. Most of the time this doesn’t really happen, but every once in awhile you find a gem. Maybe that is what keeps me coming back to attempting chick lit, knowing that sometimes I do find something I really enjoy.

    This sounds like one I will probably skip. I am not that into chick-lit as it is, and if I do read chick-lit, it has to be really good, which it sounds like this one is not. Thanks for helping me decide on this book!

    skip it? i think i will..
    the snippet above is fantastic!! but i doubt i could take a whole book full of it.

    perhaps if the author wrote newspaper columns, i could get into those instead, short would be bearable.

    thanks for the heads up, this is one i would have added to my mindless pile as well, but now do not have to.
