A Snarkling with a Sophie-sticated style wonders:
what is your opinion on the Shopaholic books?
ok, I've read them.
All of them.
They're fluff. Not cotton candy fluff but more like hummus and wheat thin fluff: they aren't serious food but they're fun to inhale.
I call them my Friday night books. I can read them in usually about two hours, with my feet up, a glass of wine, and the phone off. It's a nice break from the clatter of the real world.
I just can't read manuscripts or anything too grim on a Friday night. It's fluff night.
Now, that doesn't mean I'm going to be reading Nicholas Sparks any time soon, but Sophie KInsella is funny, and I like her so I read her. Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series is a Friday night book too. I read The Devil Wears Prada on a Friday night. I have a hard time remembering what I read but on Friday but it's got to be light, and I hope it will be funny.
And I'm not being patronizing I hope in calling them fluff. Nothing is better than fluff when that's what you want.
