I Did (But I Wouldn't Now)
Are you ready to rock?
Lily Crandell has always lived in the shadow of her older sister, Lauren, who has a successful career as a wedding planner and a perfect husband and baby boy. Known within her family for being an aimless, impulsive trouble-magnet, Lily finally decides she may as well live up to her reputation: she elopes with new beau and would-be rock star Ted Day...more
I am getting such a kick out of this story. It's fun, witty, has a strong female character (in the big personality kind of way, but kinda weak when it comes to relationships/love). I stayed up really late reading, I was that into it. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that in every chapter, at least so far, the character has to remind you she's a bad girl, or at least not good. We get it, move on =)
I had such a good time with this book, and I ...more

Girl is divorcing a simi-famous rock star and escapes to London to spend time with her best friend, Dude, of course. They dated years ago, but of course, that didn't work out (you can guess where it goes at the end). Girl is super out of control, like in the way that she lives her life and the things she says, but for like the first time ever, it ...more

While the story was fluffy and none of the characters are likable, I could admit that the author had me entertaine ...more
I stressed out on page 50 when the passport Lily "borrowed" from her sister was stolen. On page 69 I realized that this was not my kind of book when the main character said "The thing is, I liked Ted's mood swings. I liked not knowing which Ted I was going to get".
I didn't realize there are people out there who like living on that kind of an edge. I think that I would rather be thrown out of an airplane witho ...more
None of the characters is likeable. They are all... sick, seriously. The plot... oh my God. And the ending is soooooo lame.
And let me say, usually, when the characters from previous novel appear, I will enjoy them. They become great. Better. But here? Oh, God, I 'upgrade' my hatred for Lauren. She is disgusting. Something is really wrong with her brain.
And I've never read a main male character that is so pathetic, stupid, weak, chicken, and all-th ...more
This is not a novel of substance- it's just mind candy. It's like watching an old 80's movie on a rainy day. It wasn't bad, but it doesn't leave any real lasting impression, either.
Food: county fair cotton candy. Nothing innovative, just sugar that melts as soon as it hits your lips. Sweet and insubstantial and something only to b ...more
I grew up in Mesquite, Texas, which for those of you who like livestock shows, is the home of the Mesquite Rodeo. Ironically, Mesquite was named after Mesquite trees, only ...more
