Review: Elasticity

Elasticity
by Tiffany Romigh
reviewed by Rian Montgomery

If you enjoy chick lit novels that are based around serious issues but still somehow keep that personal, readable tone that the genre is known for, then you will love Elasticity. We have three main heroines in this book: Brooke, a shopaholic who can’t seem to get her spending under control, which is a problem since she’s running out of money… and fast. There’s Whitney, who can’t seem to lose weight and keep it off, no matter what diet she tries – and she’s tried them all. Then there is Tripp, who can’t break her addiction to pills, which she basically needs to actually function.

It’s one month before their 10-year high school reunion, and all three women vow to one another that they will use that month to get their problems under control so they can attend the reunion at their best. Continue reading Review: Elasticity

Review: Easy On The Eyes

Easy On The Eyes
by Jane Porter
reviewed by Kelly Smith

Tiana Tomlinson is at the height of her game as an anchor for America Tonight, a highly rated entertainment/news program. Or so she thinks. The higher-ups have other plans, namely replacing Tiana with a younger, hipper version named Shelby. Although the powers that be acknowledge Tiana’s smarts, they feel she could use a little help in the “you’re starting to look older so you need to consider a little nip and tuck” department. Tiana suddenly feels her world slipping away, the same world that has kept her going since the death of her husband seven years earlier. Not quite willing to bow down to the plastic surgery gauntlet Continue reading Review: Easy On The Eyes

Review: Something Blue

Something Blue
by Emily Giffin
reviewed by Kelly Smith

Darcy is pregnant with Marcus’ baby and although she can’t get over the betrayal by Rachel and Dex, she forges ahead with plans to marry Marcus who has, somewhat reluctantly, stepped up to the plate. But Marcus is no Dex and even Darcy can’t change who he is. Though Darcy seems to know that in her heart that Marcus is not the one for her, it shocks her when he tells her that he doesn’t want to marry her and that he doesn’t want to be a father. Truly on her own (her mother having written her off for the audacity of getting pregnant), Darcy makes the decision to move to London and stay with Ethan, a mutual friend of her and Rachel’s from elementary school.
