REVIEW for A Shore Thing - Snooki


















Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for sending me a copy of this book!

TITLE:                      A Shore Thing, Snooki

AUTHOR:                 Snooki

GENRE:                    Novel

RATING:                  1 star

Okay, I have to admit that despite my best efforts, I still somehow managed to hear about Snooki. I don't even know if the show she is on is actually available in Canada - but I certainly hope not - because the last thing this person needs is yet another 15 minute of fame.


I have to admit that she managed to surround herself with some savvy business people - how else can you explain this book? especially the fact that it is published by the wonderful Simon & Schuster that has published so many books that I have adored and reread over and over again.

I own up to the fact that Simon & Schuster asked me to review this book and I admit to being a tiny bit curious to see if Snooki was as silly and ridiculous as I thought she was - unfortunately, this book proved me right.

Loaded with a bunch of stuff that I won't go into - I found myself at times yawning and/or skipping also entire paragraphs in the dim hope of getting to a "good passage" - it never happened.

I am glad that I did not pay good $$$ for this book - and, while I wanted to be able to review it positively, I honestly can't do it.

Hahahahahahaha! I am soooo glad you reviewed this! I have seen this book advertised all over. I have to say I was just the teeniest bit curious. You have cured my curiosity. I am not surprised you gave it 1 star, I mean come on... really?
