REVIEW for I Heart Paris


















A big thank you goes out to Shannon at HarperCollins for sending me a copy of this book!

TITLE:                          I Heart Paris

AUTHOR:                    Lindsey Kelk

GENRE:                       Chick Lit

RATING:                     2 Stars

I am a huge fan of chick lit and had already read the first book in this series without finding all that entertaining. However, when I got the opportunity of reading I Heart Paris I thought I would definitely give it another go - especially since I had heard really good things about this one.


Unfortunately, just like the first book in the series, I Heart Paris just did not keep up my interest enough for me to consider this one a winner and rate anything over a 2 stars.

For me, chick lit is supposed to be "cute" but also very entertaining and frankly, the author writes characters and scenarios that just do not keep me engaged in the least. The plotline is too slow and the characters are unexceptional in most cases.

While I realize that part of the fun of reading this series is the fact that the locale keeps changing - and come on - Paris, New York and Hollywood are definitely exciting places - I just get so bored by the storyline that it seems as though the stories could have been anywhere in the world and I still would not care.

I really did want to enjoy this one - and it does seem as though many other readers like this author - just not me.
