bookshelves: no-judgements, crap-tastic

Yes, it's fluffy, undeveloped chick lit with no real literary value or interest. Yes, the protagonist doesn't really have a personality, and none of the characters manage to progress beyond 2-dimensional stereotypes. But it takes place mostly in India, and I have a weakness for Bollywood movies, so it amused me. Endless stories of horrible dates and weddings where our Dateless Wonder Protagonist stands on the sidelines become a lot more interesting when the dates are arranged and chaperoned by the parents, and the weddings are lavish, multi-million dollar affairs where the bride is covered in jewelry and diamond bindis, and wears lavender glitter in her hair to compliment her sari.
