Book Reactions: Chasing Harry Winston - 2/5 stars

"Chasing Harry Winston" by Lauren Weisberger was chick lit #2 of 2009.

I picked up this book at the library because I am a huge fan of "The Devil Wears Prada" as a movie, so I figured I'd love this book too... but no, not so much. This book follows the life of 3 best girlfriends as they make a one year commitment to each other, one makes the plan to have a year of" fun", hooking up with as many guys as possible, while another plans to stop sleeping around and instead settle down and potentially find herself a husband. I felt that the writing of this book was a bit crazed as the story jumped from girl to girl a lot. As a result, it felt like I never got to know either of the characters well. So, when the book was over, even though I didn't really like it, I still wanted more story about the characters. Basically, it wasn't a total waste of time, but it would have been much more enjoyable on a beach in Mexico with a lemonade instead on in my fleecy pjs while a blizzard raged outside (I read it in February...).

** Its Thanksgiving weekend around here so I'll be spending the rest of my day getting the house in shape for our 9 visitors that are coming tomorrow for turkey! Off to vacuum :)

Hey Amanda,

I see the time listed next to your post but not the date. How do I know when you posted your entry?

I want a white kitchen too! I think they look lovely and would remain in style for years to come.
