Avid reader/reviewer and editor. I don't pull punches when I review, love it or hate it, you get what I think.
Let me start by saying that I usually like chick lit. Especially when it's witty and sharp, so I dove into this one hoping for an entertaining read. I mean, come on, it has the potential. The blurb sounded so promising, so I dove in, and it didn't take long for me to be ready to dive right back out. Don't get me wrong, the book does have its moments. I even chuckled a time or two. But - oh, yes, there's a but - I didn't find a single likable character in the bunch, and I couldn't relate to any of them. It's a whole lot of gossip and one-upsmanship, and a bunch of women who seem to care only about social status. Quite possibly, and most probably, this is just not the book for me. In fact, if you enjoy shows like Desperate Housewives, then you'll probably like this one more than I did. For me, it just felt like an incredibly long book that took a long time to get through.
