really liked it
bookshelves: chick-lit, phi-mu-bc
Read in March, 2010

3.5 stars, but considering how fun and breezy it was, i'm rounding up. And considering how much I disliked this book after reading the first chapter (and how ridiculously silly it started), I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it. Of course the HEA ending was predictable, but then again most chick lit is--you're not going to keep boy and girl apart when they're meant for each other! But I really enjoyed the setting of the novel--first (briefly) London, then a beautiful chateau in France, as heroine Lizzie tries to do something brave and travel to Europe after her (not quite) college graduation. The majority of the novel is centered around a wedding in France--but not Lizzie's wedding, which was a fun little twist. And I liked the fact that Lizzie--who CANNOT shut up, but it's more amusing than anything--loved vintage clothing and knows how to sew, yet can't quite figure out what she wants to do with her life once she graduates college. Cabot had a clear idea of who Meg was, as well as the ups and downs we all faced when being 22, and she created an effectively light, fluffy read.

All in all, it was quite charming.

Kim I think this is the one Meg Cabot book I haven't read. I'll have to give it a try. Once you get off your diet, I would recommend her Heather Wells mystery trilogy (size 12 is not fat. size 14 is not fat either. big boned). Light and fluffy with a really cute heroine.
