Review: Fashionably Late


There’s nothing like a marriage proposal to jolt you into reality and make you wonder what exactly you want out of life. When Becca Davis of Fashionably Late is proposed to by her longtime boyfriend Kevin, she accepts, but almost immediately realizes that it isn’t what she wants.

Instead, she decides to break the engagement and flee to Los Angeles to try and pursue her true passion of fashion design. She moves in with her sister and jumps into the industry bravely, not realizing how cut-throat and catty the industry is. She is forced to take a job at a restaurant to make ends meet while pursuing her dream. Continue reading Review: Fashionably Late

Review: Spooning


Spooning
by Darri Stephens
Broadway Books, April 2006
Reviewed by Rian Montgomery

This book held great promise: the story of a girl just starting out in the great city of New York with a new job, new apartment, and a unique twist of a cooking club.

The problem is that the story was all over the place; you could tell that it was written by two people. Continue reading Review: Spooning

Review: Falling Out of Fashion


Falling Out of Fashion by Karen Yampolsky was simply one of the best [adult] chick lit novels I have read in quite some time. It is a working-girl chick lit novel, but also falls into the glamour lit category quite easily. The plot revolves around Jill White, a woman who has a magazine named after her. She manages to make a very strong and passionate name for herself, although the ride along the way was a little bumpy.

From college woes to job stress, to life and love, it’s all here in this book, written very warmly and intelligently. Jill White is one of those larger-than-life characters who you can’t help but love. Continue reading Review: Falling Out of Fashion

Review: Sex and the Single Ghost


Being an avid fan of Fantasy/Paranormal chick lit, I was eager to read this book. It’s a story about a girl named Claire who died nine years ago. For the past near decade she has sat in “Purgatory”, which is sort of like a version of the Afterlife, or Heaven.

Every nine years, souls in the Afterlife get to go back down to earth in their original physical body for one night – on Halloween. If in that time the person manages to touch a human’s soul, they are allowed to stay on earth for nine days and nights.

Claire is desperate to get down to earth because she is dying to have sex. Yes, that’s right – apparently in the Afterlife, there is no sex, no eating chocolate, no fun. (Who knew the Afterlife would be full of horny ghosts??) So upon her trip back to earth, she tries to track down the one man that she has desperately wanted to sleep with for years.

Little does she know that he is also “dead”, too.. and returning to Earth as a ghost.
