Not one to like chick lit (I.e., the way the genre is defined now, with shallow, deceitful women who obsess about appearance and consumerism), I read the first Shopaholic book and promised myself NEVER ever to read another of Kinsella’s books again. To be fair, I gave it a chance. I did finish the book and I had every intention of putting out an objective review. At the end of those sorry pages, however, my neurons were screaming in anguish and pain, making every second of the hour I gave up for it seem like endless masochism. I won’t pretend I don’t like the occasional light reading every now and then, but give me Baby Blues anytime. Wanda and Darryl kick Becky Bloomwood’s behind any day of the week (and twice on Sundays, as my husband likes to say).
Now if I were looking for some fun, mindless droll, I’d much rather read this:
If you’re really into zombies, however, how about you go for these two as required reading? The television series “The Walking Dead” may have tested your gore stamina but good old-fashioned book knowledge may spell the difference between survival and annihilation in a zombified world.
Think you can make a run for it? I’d hate for this to happen to you…
