    One thought on “The Sleeping Beauty Proposal”

    1. I loved this book You have no idea how much While it wasn t exactly Hemingway, the subject matter made me pull back and think Think REAL HARD.For example.why DON T we hold Welcome to real life showers for women just graduating college, or if they don t go to college and just enter the workforce, high school Why should a woman s worth be defined by whether she s getting MARRIED or not Why should only women who are getting married get the REALLY GOOD STUFF that every woman wants when moving out on [...]

    2. I hated the beginning of the book, i dread reading the middle and I was so happy it ended The premise of the book could have been fun and interested,unique for sure However I found the characters to be pathetic Genie seemed so needy, desperate to have a guy love her, pretending to be engaged so that people won t think she is a loser I really did not enjoy the whole lying to everyone including her parents in order to feel like she is someone worth being loved It was all so predictable and dull I [...]

    3. This book was a disappointment I really enjoyed Sarah Strohmeyer s other fairy tale inspired books, but this one was painfully predictable, flat, and boring I found myself skimming chapters just to get through it and see if anything remotely interesting and not predictable happened It didn t Hugh was the cliched, stuck up intellectual elitist Genie was the cliched devoted, loyal and downtrodden girlfriend Nick was the cliched knight in shining armor Patty was the cliched rough around the edges, [...]

    4. Not trying to be rude, but I didn t like this book at all It was kinda a bunch of nonsense When the character s boyfriend proposes on t.v to someone else, she lets her friend talk her into pretending the proposal was meant for her to avoid the embarrassment She goes as far as buying a cubic zirconia wedding ring and letting her parents put deposits down for the wedding except for her dad really knows, and secretely cancels all the plans after the mother makes them.Anyway, then it turns out the n [...]

    5. This book was probably one of my first exposures to feminism when I was younger I had never thought about the differing treatment for married women versus those who were not married Afterwards, I was very vocal about how I would need basic kitchen and household supplies long before I was married, because I would be living on my own long before that happened Accordingly, one of my sisters gave me a set of glasses that remains one of the most significant gifts I have ever received Moral of the sto [...]

    10. I only picked this book up because I was assured it didn t follow the formula that all chick lit appears to follow This was the book that was going to convince me that it wasn t all desparate meek heartbroken women who finally have that light bulb moment.If you ve been told the same, well I m sorry to disappoint because this is exactly one of those books The standard women breaks up with boyfriend husband in a traumatic way and then, after moping for a few weeks months realises shes worth Enter [...]

    11. Very cute story It was maybe a little cheesy that Genie and Patty were able to get away with fake engagements as long as they didd maybe, just maybe Nick was a little too good to be true But it was a wonderful modern day fairytale and I m going to pretend it can really happen.Strohmeyer s characters had really interesting personalities Genie was someone I could really relate to Her best friend, Patty, reminded me a lot of Samantha from Sex the City I loved the rivalry between Patty and Genie s b [...]

    14. Well this book wasAt first, I wanted to say crap I read the first half just astonished as how crappy it was.But by the end, it was kind of like a Lifetime movie It was so bad that it was kind ofgood Not in a good good way and I certainly wouldn t rush and tell anyone to read it but it was so bad that I found myself desperate to find out what in the world could happen next because bad, so so bad.It was just too over the top The characters, the plot line, some of the things that happened, they wer [...]

    15. After reading The Penny Pinchers Club I knew that the book started off a bit sluggish and got a lot better so I was expecting the same from this book as well Unfortunately, it never really seemed to pick up There were very few humorous parts I never really found myself chuckling at all I chose to read this book after the Penny Pinchers because the plot sounded like a hit I just kept waiting for the sticky situation to pick up.One thing that really seemed to bother me was from out of nowhere we a [...]

    16. I really like this book It took me awhile to fall for the story Mostly because I would attempt to read it before bed and after about 2 minutes I d conk out At no fault of the book though So I finally started to read it at a reasonable hour and fell in love instead of asleep I really like how the main character has such a great relationship with her brother You don t find that often in chicklits I also thought the inner dialog of the main character was hilarious The storyline had me going and I m [...]

    18. This is the second book from Sarah Strohmeyer that I read As expected, this book is fantastically amazing When it comes to Sarah s novel expect a non stop page flipping until you have finished the entire book You just cant stop reading once you start the first page I know because I did it and this is the kind of book you will want to read it because it is sooo good The story starts with Genie having this amazing perfect boyfriend, Hugh for four years Then suddenly, that boyfriend of four years l [...]

    19. I found this book randomly at a book sale, and I thought the plot was interesting I am really glad that I gave it a try because I actually enjoyed reading this book It was a light read and it helped me get my mind off of work school The main character and the story kind of reminded me of Sophie Kinsella s books, which I used to enjoy a lot There were some situations in which the protagonist acted irrationally, but I actually found them amusing and funny I just could not believe how a person coul [...]

    20. This was a very quick read I honestly wasn t interested in the book til about page 200 However, The ending really tied you in and made you love the book Throughout the book it is very difficult to decipher the dialog between two characters You really have to pay attention to context clues to figure out who is saying what Also I felt very unfamiliar with the characters until about half way through which is a bit poor on the authors part But overall it was a cute, quick read

    21. The end was like the typical fairy tail ending where everything works out This book would make a good Hallmark Movie However I didn t like all the lying and deceiving and the fact that there were no consequences to any of that Ultimately she became a better version of herself, however I am not really sure that she learned anything because it worked out too well for her and even her friend who basically did the same thing All fairy tails usually have a teachable moment, this failed at that Overal [...]

    25. The premise of this one, while a little ridiculous, was intriguing enough for me to grab it off the library shelf and bring it home The execution, on the other handWhile I d hesitate to call this thing poorly written I had several laugh out loud moments the plot premise is just not strong enough for a novel of this length If it had been about a hundred pages shorter and if Genie hadn t gone so over the top in letting people think that she was engaged, then it could have been tons of fun As it wa [...]

    26. In comparison to the last book I reviewed, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, this was a compelling read It was a perfect example of why it was wise that I stopped reading Edgar Sawtelle if I m really enjoying a book, I ll want to read it even when I should be doing other stuff and I will fly through it I started this one yesterday around 1pm or so and finished it before I went to bed, with all the requisite mommy and wife stuff in between Sure, it wasn t a deep sort of read, but does that matter What [...]
