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

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a best friend from childhood who would remain your best friend forever? Or even a group of friends? Lindsay Faith Rech’s latest book explores just that possibility, and more. This is no ordinary chick lit book, I might add. Instead, this book is a wonderful novel filled with characters that you just don’t want to leave at the end, and a story that is more like an experience then just a story.

“Joyride” is told from Stella’s point of view. The story begins in the present tense one night when Stella gets a phone call from her best childhood friend Emily, who now lives in Europe. Continue reading Review: Joyride
