Life isn’t a fairytale – or chick lit.
It’s 2005 and Katy Sinclaire is two years out of college. She still lives with her old university roommate and still works at the same bookstore that she’s been with since she was a teenager. She spends her days avoiding customers, making fun of the books in the store, and counting the minutes until she can clock out. It is an increasingly unsatisfying life, but it’s also a life that she does not question. That is, until a chain of events forces Katy to confront the painful truth: she is going absolutely, positively, nowhere in life. She realizes that she needs to do something, and now.
Only one problem: Katy has absolutely, positively, no idea what the first step should be.
The other problem? From her harebrained misadventures, to her chisel-jawed boyfriend, to her best guy friend (who is not-so-secretly in love with her), Katy’s life starts mimicking the very chick literature she mocks. Only life isn’t as predictable as a storybook, a lesson Katy is forced to learn as she desperately tries to figure out her purpose in life – if such a purpose even exists.
My Review: This is a fun and witty read.
Katy is going through what a bunch of people go through in life. She is working at the same place for a while now, and has the same routine. Basically she is stuck and isn't really go nowhere. She wants to change that. She wants to make something of her life. But what and how? Well who really knows? No one really knows their plan for life. At least it takes some time to really know.
So Katy decides to dive all in and figure things out. Its a full roller coaster ride. Plenty of ups, downs, laughing, intrigue, and so much more. Its a great read for anyone, and if you're looking to step away from your usual read, then try this!
