bookshelves: abandoned
Recommended for: no one!

I hardly ever give up on a book, but this one was unbearable. The author comes across as a cliched UES sorority girl - obsessed with shoes, chocolate, shopping, martinis (should I be thankful that they weren't Cosmos?). I couldn't relate. I started reading this because she was scheduled to speak to the Women's Leadership group at work, but I canceled my attendance after reading the first few chapters. The "give something up for a time period" trope has been done better elsewhere.
