However goofy and silly you have thought these books are, well...they probably are. But, I choose to read it because my good friend becky recommended it to me and lent it to me. It didn't start out strong with me, I seemed to be mostly annoyed at the Shopoholic for the beginning of the book, but I am not entirely unsure that the author did not mean to do this. Not to far into the book, it gained that addictive quality for me, meaning whenever I got a second it was what I would go to grab.
The book is worth reading, it is really naive, and obnoxious, and sometimes you just want to grab the shopaholic and strangle her so that she will learn to make better choices...but she does learn some things that make her much more likable after the first bit. She definitely grew on me, and now, even though I have filled my craving for chick-lit for a little while, when I need a brainless break I will definately pick up the next one! Like I mentioned about it earlier, for what it is it is good. It is fun to read, it has that brainlessness of watching tv...but you are reading! Give it a try, let me know what you think.
