really liked it
bookshelves: graphic-novel, nonfiction, 2009

I thought this was really, really sweet. It touched a chord with me, since I'm kind of in the same time of my life as the author, and her feelings about her friends & work & life & mom & "ack! what am I even doing?" resonated. I wished it had been longer, so that it wouldn't have had to end so soon :) I've seen a lot of criticism that this book's self-centered and entirely about shopping and food... while those are fairly true, it didn't bother me. It's a diary, and I actually liked that she seemed to say what she was really feeling, good OR bad, throughout the whole trip. I think without that honesty, the whole thing would've rung a little false.

Adorable and a fun read overall!
