For Better, For Worse is one of the funniest books I have EVER read. Filled with hilarious and endearing characters, and mad-cap and suspenseful plot twists, I highly recommend everyone read this book, whether you like chick lit or not. An absolute gem of a book, taking place in New York City and London.

Some of her thoughts are funny, as Emily seems to be a vibrant and odd character. Continue reading Review: Escape From Bridezilla
