Confessions Of A Shopaholic (Book).

confessions

I'm at page 122 of this book and I've hated it since 100 pages ago.

This reminds me why I NEVER read chic lit.

It's mind numbingly annoying. Every single bit of it is.

The main character is fucking out of this world. She is completely delusional, a pathological lying psycho, whines like bitch, does not possess a single ounce of willpower or logic and above all, has absolutely no sense of ethics or responsibility.

I can actually feel my IQ dropping after every page turn.

I fucking HATE chic lit with every fibre of my being. Fucking stupid wasting time piece of trash.

Back to finishing the stupid book. I paid for it anyway.

Stupid book.

But guess I'm the bigger idiot for buying it. And then having to finish it.

(I hope the book is nothing like the movie)

Edit:
Done reading the abominable thing. Couldn't bear reading every line so ended up skipping many pages at a go. I had to, otherwise I would've to stick my head down the toilet and flush it. Fucking hate the ridiculous storyline - Girl has no control over her addiction to shop. All her credit cards are busted. Keeps attempting to "run away" from her escalating bills. Does jack-all at work. Makes up all sorts of crazy lies to get by on life on a daily basis. Absolutely clueless about life because all she really cares about is herself and her shopping. Then somehow by a stroke of luck lands herself with a fucking awesome job and a millionaire for a boyfriend and everything's fine and dandy. STUPID. This shit is fucking WORSE than Disney's happy ever after lies. ARGH I'm SO AGITATED. WHAT THE FUCK BULLSHIT STORY IS THIS! I HATE CHICK LIT I HATE CHICK LIT YOU'LL NEVER CATCH ME ANYWHERE NEAR THESE VILE SHIT EVERY AGAIN... It's not EVEN LIT. It's freaking TRASH. It does NOT belong in the fiction section of the bookstore. It belongs in the TRASHCAN. oh god i have "he's not into you". Stupid 3 for 2 book promotions ARGH. WHY DO I DO THESE THINGS TO MYSELF! I've to go calm myself down now with beer before i start stomping on things. kthxbai.

  1. aiyah...you are the wrong target audience la. Its meant for shopaholics who wants to know that they are not alone. Or else, how credit card companies can make so much money eh? And how big lifestyle brands keep mushrooming? That book title does not even deserve me lifting its cover.

  2. I know how you feel. If you don't finish it, the book wins, right?

    Oh man, the amount of crap I've read just so that the damn book doesn't win...

  3. where is ur feminine side??

    FA: That's not even relevant. Just because I don't enjoy shit books doesn't make me unfeminine.

  4. Quite clearly you're a masochist... though I've long suspected it from your Hugh Grant film addiction ;)

  5. I hate that book as well, HATE it with a vengeance. It makes women seem so retarded.

    All my friends thought I would love it because I am a complete shopaholic... before I read it, I thought I would like it as well... but just like you, I couldn't even force myself to read past a few pages. I was luckier than you in that I borrowed the book from the library.

    Conversely, "He's just not that into you" is much better! I really liked the movie version anyways :)

  10. This is the rubbish that Americans read. You can imagine how fucked up these people are, that's why they're fucking up their own economy so well.

    You ain't seen nothing yet. I am waiting for civil war and riots in America. Anytime now.

    Time for them to wake up and kill some bankers.

  12. I rather read my depressing Murakami books. Har har. But I do want to catch the film, so i can heckle it if it's that bad.

  13. Even bankers made for good book fodder. This, and other chic-lit trash, is too trashy even for my usual trashy taste.

    SATC was the pioneer of the genre, and while it was a temporary fantasy wonderland catered to middle-aged, overwork women(ie, my mom), it also caused massive disillusion amongst us ladies.

  14. hahahahhah..omg i love chicklit. Janet Evanovich's series of Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter, stories are my favourite.

    er. i think i just love reading. there's a lot of bad chicklit out there though.

  16. Why aren't you just borrowing books from the library instead of wasting money buying these books that you apparently hate? Between shopaholic (which I love - surprise surprise...) and twilight, yo coulda saved yourself a few bucks by just borrowing them. That's what I do. kiamsiap is the new black! :)

    FA: Oh I didn't buy the books. I read it for free. Ebooks rock. :P
