It has been a long time since i read a chic lit book but i have read great books involving loving friendships between women. This isnt one of them. I thought i would get a strong emotional bond between women going through some grown women issues like in Saving Graces, Brothers and Sisters and most books i have read by Lisa See but what i got was an adult book that read like a ya novel. The women were weak, naive and i never felt any strong connections between them even as they started to open up with each other. It was like reading Pretty Little Liars without Allison ten years later. The issues they go through in their daily lives is just so stereotypical that the writer would have to be a great talent to actually make one care. This writer in this book just did not do a great job in character development. Chic lit or whatever they call it is suppose to be fun,enjoyable, somewhere in the story bring a tear to the eye either from joy or a sad ending but this book evoke absolutely nothing but the feeling i just got robbed for ten dollars by the writer and kindle

Tara That's why I get my books at the library. Read them first, THEN buy. This book was not well-written at all.

Yeah buying that book definitely was a mistake. But u know i read the kindle sample pages and it started off well but it went no where after the sample pages. I got played on that one. Lately i havent been picking books well


Tara I hate when that happens! Have you read the books by Cecilia Ahern? She did "P.S. I Love You" and "Thanks for the Memories." They're cute, fun, and well-written. Also, if you haven't read Melissa Bank or Haven Kimmel's memoirs (not as in love with her fiction)... I recommend them. :)

ok thanks! I haven't read any of those authors and will definitely look into their work.
