Chick Lit (And Other Formulas For Life)

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.

  1. I enjoy books with lots of character interactions and clever banter I enjoy books with lots of character interactions and clever banter, and Chick Lit provides both. The story line is refreshing as we follow the main character Katy while she matures into a confident and proactive young woman. 

  2. Not your usual easy read As a preface, I was given a preview copy for an honest review. This book is worth the read, if only for understanding more of the human condition. The main character, Katy, is so wrapped up in her own monotonous life that if you’re looking for a literary escape, this is not the book for you. However, if you want an honest introspective look at the life of an average 20-something girl, this is it.
