Flu induced thoughts

This probably should be in the other blog - but what the heck..

Been reading a couple of chick lit books lately my excuses being the flu and doing research for my own book (which is progressing at snail's pace. Still stuck with Chapter 1).

The first one was 'Lipstick Jungle' by Candace Bushnell (of Sex and the City fame) which had good reviews on Amazon, so I decided to borrow it from the library (I rarely buy books unless I am certain I'll read it multiple times). The first thing I noticed about the book was her photo on the back cover (my husband noticed and commented on it too). She looked kind of hot...I wonder if its a prerequisite for chick-lit authors to look hot because they all do seem that way. Or is it merely the power of the airbrush?

Anyway the book was okay. Sort of. She tried to come off as being fair to both sexes and all that sort of thing. It was fascinating to read about rich women in positions of power, but beyond that, where is the story? What's the plot? What's the point of all these pages and pages? What's with the ending that seems like the author got tired of writing one day and wrote a feel-good chapter to finish it off?

The other book I read was The Bachelorette party by Karen McCullah Lutz. I don't even remember why I picked up this book especially since I'd never heard of the author (who is actually quite famous), but I am glad I did. The Publishers Weekly review sums it as 'chick lit for mean girls'. I guess I am a mean girl then, since I thoroughly enjoyed the book and laughed heartily. Why hasn't this book been made into a movie yet??

A couple of changes to the blog. Removed the Smith Jones post for further refinement. Also decided to consolidate my identity into Jeevita...
