Don't Even Think About It Reviews

    I got this book from BookOutlet as it was dirt cheap ($1.49 CAD) and I had been in search of contemporary books since I do read a lot of thriller/horror, dystopian, and fantasy books. I thought it would be nice to read something light in between all those heavy books I'm usually always immersed in. Before I go in depth about this book, I just want to remind everybody not to be discouraged by a bad review or ratings from reading a book that they truly want to give a try. Therefore, if this book is on your TBR list and it's something you want to read and form an opinion on for yourself, go right ahead! Maybe you'll like it a lot more than I did if your favourite genre is chic lit and contemporary romance. For me, though, it was just absolutely terrible. It just reminded me once more why I don't read these types of books. When I was about 30 pages in the book, I found the characters to be a little confusing. Which, of course, I didn't mind too much. After all, the book was just getting started, I didn't expect to have them all figured out by page 30. The "heroine," Sally, is the one who really confused me. Her character was a little difficult in my opinion... It was hard to tell whether she really liked Katie or not. Her tone changes quite abruptly so it was hard for me to form some sort of grip on the character and the plot itself. Also, Scott... What was the deal there? The author made him sound like a complete, over the top, A-list jerk. I didn't know if his character was well done in that sense (maybe we're suppose to think he's a jerk?) or if it was a little bit too over done. I dove into this book really expecting it to be quite humorous and a light-hearted read. What I did realize sooner than later, though, was that it was a lot more explicit than I had expected it to be. This is absolutely fine, of course, if that's what you're looking for. Sometimes, though, I found the "steamy" sex scenes rather unnecessary and did very little to the plot and/or character development. The humour, if you could even call it that, was also just a tad bit terrible. The jokes exchanged between the two BFFs, Sally and Jude, were just mainly plain bitter and angry trash talking which wasn't really the kind of humour I was looking and hoping for in this book. Ergo, I was disappointed in that department. I, however, hate to leave a book unfinished without ever picking it up again. I am too much of a curious person to do something like that. So, I continued on. At this point (about 100 pages in), without much surprise, I was beginning to get irritated with Sally's character. She just seemed too unnecessarily bitter (and I won't even go into details about how fake I thought she was being throughout this whole book) towards Katie. And might I add, she also had a very violent and abusive imagination on more than one occassion which made me cringe a little bit. Another thing that bothered me about this book is that these characters are suppose to be in their mid 30s (except Katie, who's only suppose to be in her mid 20s), but they were being portrayed by the author as if they were in their mid to late 20s! Their character seemed too immature and a little underdeveloped. Again, this might have been the author's intention...but I was not fond of it. It made it difficult for me, again, to get a grip on the characters. It made it difficult to form any type of bond with any of the characters, for that matter. I didn't feel as though I was part of the story, which is what I look for when I read books. I felt like I was just a stranger outside looking in. It made it harder to keep reading. But keep reading I did!Now, I can't forget the cringe worthy moment where the author's attempt (also on more than one occasion) to convey a drunken conversation between two people miserably failed. She used a lot of unnecessary and exagerrated lisps... (i.e. "Becaushe—becaushe I jusht don't see what Mikey ever shaw in her.) Um...yeah...a little too over the top. I'm not very sure what kind of drunken people Lauren Hendersen has surrounded herself with. But, personally, I've never been around a drunken person who all of a sudden developed a speech impediment THAT extreme after knocking back a few glasses of wine.Overall, I gave this book 2 stars out of 5. I feel like I have gained nothing from this book. I was expecting a huge twist, or even a huge revelation from either one of the characters, that will compensate for the mediocre and mundane and cliche story that this book presented. I was greatly disappointed at how the characters had very little development. The characters were whiny and bitter. Like I've said, it made it that much harder to engage myself in the story. I seemed detached the whole time I was reading this book. PS, Michael's character did a FANTASTIC job in proving that some people really just don't grow up whether or not you plant them in a situation where they are REQUIRED to grow the hell up. Old habits die hard.

    This book is about a woman who has a crush on a former boyfriend who she still believes is her prince charming. Until the day she actually dates him again and realises that he has never passed the frog phase. An eye-opener sprinkled with good humour.

    Why do English books have to be about drinking, snogging, and shagging? Don't they do anything else?

    Michael has a type, petite, brunette and very pretty. All of which describe his best friend and ex-girlfriend Sally. Sally has been holding a torch for Michael ever since they broke up nine years ago but their relationship has moved from romantic to more like brother and sister. On the surface this seems to be fine with Sally as Michael parades around with girl after girl. But Sally's best friend Jude knows better and has a plan to get these two back together. However, after a series of events it becomes clear that Michael's newest girl may be in it for the long haul and quickly relationships between Sally and Michael, Michael and Jude and Jude and Sally are redefined. And once another of Michael's ex's shows up all of their lives will be flipped upside down!'DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT' is not at all your typical chick lit novel. There are no clear answers as to where the story is going or how it is going to end and it will keep the reader quickly turning pages in order to find out. I also loved the ending because it was not at all what I would expect from a chick lit novel where usually everything is tied up in a neat little bow for the reader. 'DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT' is a refreshing story that is well written and much like real life, highly recommended!

    Really didn't enjoy this book. I had seen many glowing reviews so my expectations were high. I found the plot line to be lack luster an the characters to be insecure, whiney, an just boring. The end of the book was also a let down. I finished it because I hate to leave a story unresolved, but I kept waiting for something major to happen. Nothing did happen other than the women in this book finally getting a grip Nd realizing that Michael was a low selfish SOB...which the readers know all along.

    It was okay, but as chick lit goes, I've read better. This was just "meh". Out of the four main characters, two started out likable and ended up loathsome, one became somewhat better, and one was definitely improved.

    This book is a fun, light, girly read - I read a few chapters before going to sleep. It's not incredibly well-written, but fine. I like the fact that it is about women 30-somethings in London, living their lives. I don't live in London, so that makes it interesting to me.

    Serial Dating and Pain might have been a better title...although there were some very amusing things about it.

    This was an okay read. the kind I read by the pool or in a plane usually as it requires no brain at all. It is chick lit with predictable characters and ending

    I loved this witty, sexy, silly book with a surprise ending! I fell in love with all the characters. I wanted them all to come out on top. I see a lifetime movie in the works!

    This was like watching a made-for-tv movie when you can't find anything else on the telly. Pretty good, but definitely not mind-bending.

    I was torn between giving it three stars or four stars. This book was pretty good... your everyday chicklit.

    I honestly don't remember much of this book, but I remember enough that I neither liked nor disliked it.
