it was ok

I feel like I'm reading the menu from the local IHOP compared to Shadow of the Wind. I wanted something light and fluffy after reading Shadow of the Wind and before reading The Road, but I think I could have written "Life's a Beach" myself. I was hoping for something more on par with Jennifer Weiner or Emily Giffin. Claire Cook seems to be trying to hard to be funny. I will finish it because I don't want it to be a total waste of $13.00, but it's mediocre at best. The storyline is fine, but the writing is just blah. Maybe I'm not being fair because I'm reading this book after reading The Shadow of the Wind and they are on polar opposites if the literary spectrum. Maybe I should just go with the flow and take it for what it is. A basic, mindless beach read.

I've moved on to another book. Nora Roberts, "Vision in White." I can't read "Life's a Beach" anymore. BLAHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
