liked it

A mix of chick lit, self help, and memoir, this book was definitely entertaining. But not necessarily something I'd read again. I did like how the author is local and talks about places I can picture in my head...but it just seemed a little too tell all for me. It followed through with everything it "promised," but I kept asking myself "Why do I care about this woman? Who is she? Who cares?" Yet, of course, I continued to read. The concept was an interesting one, though, and in taking the "who cares about this particular woman" thought process, really makes you wonder why you didn't think of it yourself. I read enough magazines that I could've pulled this off, too. Oh well.
