Months ago I had a book recommended to me called How to Meet Cute Boys. It's fiction-- don't worry. It looked cute, so I put it on my to-read list. A few weeks ago, while perusing the audiobooks at my library, I saw it in CD form. Deciding it would be as good a time as any to read it, I went to the desk to check it out. An older gentlemen librarian was waiting to do me the honors, so I placed the book on the counter in front of him. He picked it up, read the title aloud (I started blushing, but ...more

It was on sale, so I picked it out of the shelf. Thought it would be a light reading for the weekend. Honestly, I don't expect much from this book.

So now that I officially finish the book, I can assure you that it is definitely not on my favorite list (it is free for giveaway, even, if anybody wants it). It is basically a story about how to meet cute boys - who are jerks. But the girl is dumb anyway, so she deserves it.

Moral lessons:
Don't date younger boys (or any guys) who are not looking fo

Perhaps it was because the love interest's name was Max that bugged me. Not that it should... but whatever. I love the whole older woman with a younger guy theme, it's good fun. I hated the quizzes and little articles in between, so annoying. And once again the ending left much to be desired. I guess I'm the person who reads chicklit and likes it everything in the end to be all tied up nicely in a pink satin bow, is that too much to ask for?

How to Meet Cute Boys is a good book to read when you don't feel like thinking. It's essentially about a woman tries to date someone who, in my opinion, plays her. This isn't a deep book, but it's a fun quick read.

Benjamina ‘Ben’ Franklin beranggapan bahwa mendapatkan cowok lebih susah daripada pekerjaannya yang hanya menulis berbagai artikel berupa tips dan cerita pribadinya di majalah gaya hidup, ‘Filly’. Walaupun mempunyai ibu yang pernah menikah tiga kali dan yang saat ini sedang berkencan dengan pria manapun yang bisa dikencani, Ben tetap tidak bisa mendapatkan pria idamannya. Terlebih lagi adiknya Audrey akan menikah, yang artinya akan mendahuluinya terlebih dahulu. Belum lagi sahabatnya Kiki, cewek ...more

I would give this a 2.5.

After I was about halfway into the book, I realized I had read it before but just forgot about it (it's probably been a year or two since I read it). I picked it up because I had just finished reading Kizis' other novel, which I enjoyed.

I thought it was a cute idea how Kizis used "magazine articles" throughout the book that the heroine, Ben, had written for the fictional magazine she writes for. The articles were cute and broke the book up some, plus I found them to be

Deanna Kizis, West Coast Editor at Elle magazine, delivers a cute and entertaining debut addition to the chic-lit genre. Although the advice and dating policies are not what I'd take to heart, this remains a light, humorous break from the real world.

27-year-old Benjamina Franklin (a.k.a. Ben) is a journalist at a successful woman's magazine, which gives her almost instant access to the hottest parties and social events in L.A. You'd think finding a boyfriend would be easy. Wrong. As Ben continue

I should get a reward for reading this book the whole way through. The concept is fun. A book with traces of a magazine? Cool. I just couldn't get into it. At all.

As an avid fan of closure, I was not satisfied with the ending. I threw the book on the ground when I saw there were no more words. The characters were annoying and unbelievable. It's terrible. The plot was slow. Many things were unnecessary. I face palmed way too many times. I think after a couple pages, I was already bored, but I ke
Jun 09, 2008 rated it really liked it
The only reason I rated this chick-lit book so high was because a lot of it was my life, in a nutshell. So I identified, and the author made a lot of sense to me. That's all, really. Definitely not the best-written book I've ever read, by far. It was light, fluffy, the usual. But I actually DID like the way the ending left things unresolved: it made it feel more real, and more hopeful, in a way. Especially at this point in my life, I'm not all for lovey-dovey "and they lived happily ever after" ...more
