    I bought this book because I recently discovered that I enjoy chicklit It looked promising a woman who likes reading, and hides in reading binges when she is low It was bad.I kept reading it, trying to find when the heroine becomes likeable

    When life gets rough some girls shop, some girls drink, some get chatty with their girlfriends, and some girls do all of the above, and also grab a stack of novels and soak in the tub until their toes turn to raisins I ve been known to turn to
