Easy read. For anyone who has ever been a bridesmaid to the "bridezilla," you will love this book! I was the bride first in my circle of friends, but since then have been the bridesmaid in a number of weddings and I am very thankful that my days as a bridesmaid are almost over! Iteniraries, horrible dresses, ugly shoes you will never wear again, money you will see again... It is all in this book and very easy to relate to! Enjoyable book to read.
This was a fun, easy to read. I liked the format that the book is written in (emails, phone calls, IMs, interoffice memos) -- definitely different from the normal book, but yet still engaging and interesting.
I loved this book. Although I am a fan of the "shopaholic" books, I thought that the characters in this book were more "real" than the "shopaholic." Maybe because I am not a shopper. I do enjoy the "shopaholic" books, but I loved this book.
I enjoy reading books that deal with friendships and how these relationships ebb and flow over time and through different circumstances. I especially like books that have "real" characters that face real situations.
The mother character, Maggie, went through many of the same things that I did as a first time mom, so it was great to see that "real" mom versus the "sugary-sweet" characters that gloss over what being a first time mother can really be like. Jennifer Weiner's books are also like this, so add Wickham to the list of authors that can portray real characters. I highly recommend this book!!
A definite read for anyone who has been a bride, thinking about becoming a bride or knows someone who is a bride. Told from the perspective of a crazy bride, this book tells of all the craziness that a bride endures as she plans for her special day. I have to say that it makes me glad that I shelled out the extra dollars to hire the wedding coordinator! Money well spent, in my opinion! This book was funny and poignant.
Fun book to read. Especially if you, or anyone close to you, has been pregnant. I liked the "Diary of a Mad Bride-to-be" better, but sequels usually aren't as good as the originals. I shared a few parts of this book with my book club this evening and we shared several laughs and "too true!" moments. :)
