REVIEW for Summer Blowout




TITLE: Summer Blowout
AUTHOR: Claire Cook
DATE: June 2008
GENRE: Chick Lit
Rating: 3 Stars
Summer Blowout by Claire Cook is a breezy and extremely light chick lit, summer book.

The main character Bella is extremely shallow, but what saves this book for me is that the storyline and the writing are quite funny. I believe the author set out to write this novel to be exactly what I mentioned: A breezy summer read.

All of the usual suspects are in this book - fashion obsession (although I have to say Bella's addiction to lipstick - as opposed to shoes was a nice take), dopey family (and this family is strange), romantic heartbreak and finally, the guy that will come in and finally save the day.
I like Cook's writing - and this book was a very,very quick read. Obviously not high lit, but who cares? its summer and I laughed.

Ooh, I signed up for this one from ER but didn't get it...I got Schooled instead, but I haven't seen it come my way yet!

Still waiting for my ER book. Sounds like a quick beach read :)
