Chasing Harry Winston
by Lauren Weisberger
First two pages and I was thinking Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda but to be fair with Ms. Weisberger, tales of witty well-heeled New Yorkers running the rounds of career, romance and love post-Sex and the City are easily put into pigeonholes. Then again, benchmarks aren't excuses.
I arrived at the last pages of my copy hoping that the good half of the novel was torn away by the housekeeper. Nobody got fired and I'm done hoping.
Really, the only chase here is me hunting for a plot.
The Call of the Wild
by Jack London
The Secret Garden
by Frances Hodgson Burnett
It's impertence to give my take on these classics. For one thing, you couldn't go wrong with them. If anything I should chastise myself for being soooo late with these reads. Hmmm... how about:
1. cutting down on porn
2. watching jyesebel
3. listening to Bea Alonzo's album
