Shallow chick lit

I Heart Hollywood - Lindsey Kelk

This is perfectly adequate chick lit but with no noticeable depth and a sadly charmless heroine - which doesn't help. There's nothing really wrong with it, but Angela doesn't have the pizzazz to hold the plotline together and I simply wasn't interested in her or her problems. It's almost as if the author just ticked off the boxes required for a chick lit novel without taking the time to write it. Plus there's so much vomiting and shopping that I became utterly exhausted with it all and longed for a quiet night in front of the telly.


That said, the Hollywood superstar started out being fun though soon became subsumed by cliche. Oh well.
