You know that thing about those mills and boons books that everyone seems to like?
People like to read it cos there's always a happy ending?
I can't read them!
They're completely unoriginal (which is a sort of a given) and so boring!
I know how it's going to end, so I have no patience for the soppy heroine who's wondering if she'll have her "happily ever after". I can't empathize. And it's not even like a good chick-flick movie where there's some comedy or at least a good pair of shoes to lust after, if nothing else!
Give me a Walk in the Woods with Bill Bryson anyday(hilaaaarious!).
Why am I talking about this suddenly?
I went to the Magrudy's warehouse sale yesterday, a half hour before it closed, and was frantically looking around for books and ended up with 2 lonely planets (for 5bucks a piece! :D ) and 3 other random books, out of which one is a chick-lit that somehow irritates me no end!
Chick-lits aren't as bad as Mills and Boons. They're usually quite funny. But this one is just buggin! I feel like telling the author to just GROW UP, live a little, get some real problems, then maybe attempt to write!
Anyway...maybe it's just me! So I'm gonna dump this book! ASAP! So if anyone sees a brand-new Mrs.zhivago of Queen's Park just lying around a coffee-shop or something... you're welcome to it!
I'm off to the sale again today, I'm going to get a few more lonely planets and see what else I can scavenge!
