Trust issues will not be solved by chic lit


Do you ever get lost in a book (usually trashy, chic lit) and go into that dream like state when you think of the book? Well, I do. I just finished "a hopeless romantic" by harriet evans. I know, even the title is lame, eh? Whatever, deal.

My personal library tends to consist mostly of romantic little love stories about a girl in a big city with a few self help, how-to and inspirational books thrown in the mix. The reason being that when I read it's my escape from everything stressful or depressing that has the possibility of raising my blood pressure. Not that I have high blood pressure mind you, but I tend to be take things pretty seriously and don't need any added stress from a book.

Anywho, I'll admit it. I just get totally lost. This 500+ pager sent me day dreaming on my way to work, during my swim at lunch, etc just imagining that maybe someday I'll be that girl with that job in that city with that kind of boy. Like maybe if I read more of them I won't have to do anything about this whole letting someone in thing and trusting a guy and it will just *poof* happen to me one day. Right. What a load of crap I've been feeding myself. I think I need to start reading something of substance.

I love chick lit too - will have to check that one out. I definitely sometimes wish life could have the fairytale endings you find in there...

Books in general are a great escape and they make you think about your own life sometimes. You never know what might happen when you least expect it.

I always read a fun little "chic lit" book between the ones with the real stuff. :) I like the gooood ones that make you think, but then you just gotta have something that makes you l-o-l. I'm totally a bookworm, so if you need recommendations for either type, I have a looong list

I get that way when I read old copies of Babysitter's Club #3 "Stacey's Secret"

*Spoiler Alert* She has diabetes.

I'm totally pathetic - read so@24's comment and immediately thought, "#3 was not called Stacey's Secret; it was The Truth About Stacey."
