Read from May 23 to 28, 2011

I loved it! And that is saying a lot (for that genre) because most chick lits I just can't do; it's the same story over and over. This for once was different, and I enjoyed her writing. Now of course I am giving it 5 stars (there are no halves unfortunately, or it would have been 4.5) judging it against other novels in the same genre; I also gave Little Women five stars and it's clearly not of the same caliber.
The only part that bugged me was the drawn out affair. In the movie it almost looks like they slip a few times & then decide a decision needs to be made, while in the book they knowingly deceive everyone over and over and over & just find excuses for their actions. But this is a matter of content not style.
This is a very easy read, perfect for summer.
