it was ok
bookshelves: crap
Read from July 24 to August 04, 2012

I started reading this and then stopped after about reading 50 pages. It just was too much of her rambling and trying too hard to be funny. After a little break, I came back to this because there are some parts that are absolutely hilarious and very entertaining. I kept hoping that it would get better. But I get very tired of the repetitive style of her writing. It seemed like I was reading a story written by someone in jr. high school. I think this had the potential to be a great book, but her writing style of trying to be funny got very old, was distracting, and unnecessary. I would love to see her really develop her writing style so that it doesn't take away from her wicked sense of humor.
