Read from April 10 to 15, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

I began this book thinking: 'oh my gosh what in the world am I getting myself into?' Upon completion: 'that was actually rather good, how could I have thought of it so improperly before I had given it a chance?' But now that all that intro-mumbo-jumbo is over, let's get this review started.

12.0% "Funny....not at all what I expected from a book based on Pride & Prejudice, but keeping an open mind. It is rather humorous, a nice look into popular chick-lit. Reminds me of quite a few adult rom/com movies. Pushing onward!"

13.0% "Parents seem to be getting a little dysfunctional..homosexuality presenting itself. I do admire the use of the Great Expectations allusion to Miss Havisham"

75.0% "Hmm...starting to see a slight connection. (3-4 areas specifically, but not any more than that so far) Very humorous....rather good intro to Chick-Lit. Only 3 more months to go =)"

Patty ...better that the youthful innocence is lost in a mental bookish way so that it is not lost in a physical way that hurts the body or soul even worse--???


Samantha Haha yeah. Then it's not my fault and I won't have any regrets...its the author's fault and it hurts nobody =)

message 11: by Patty (new)

Patty ok....yeah....I don't know where that last part came from... ;?


Samantha I do, betcha betcha. Maybe over the summer? I have quite an array of characters lol the only question is: where in the world do I start? Although history has taught us that its always helpful to start at the beginning =)


message 13: by Alexandria (new)

Alexandria Isn't jar jar from Star Wars? What is with the betcha betcha?


Samantha Jar jar is from star wars. On Big Bang when Leonard's mom is visiting, they start imitating Jar Jar at the university breakfast table. What you need to do is watch Star Wars Episode I and then go watch that BBT episode. =)

Alexandria I've seen Episode I Star wars, but I don't remember THAT episode of Big Bang.

You start "in the middle" of something interesting. The fancy writing term is "in media res." Then you work forward while filling in the gaps in the back (history of the character/story.) Hope this helps! :O)
