Book Review: Sorcery and the Single Girl - Mindy Klasky

I really need to stop reading chick lit with an expectation of great plot development or stunning new characterizations. I need to remember that the girls in these stories are supposed to have guy problems, even when they seem otherwise too intelligent to get themselves into that kind of situation multiple times. I also need to remember that they must be alienated from their best friend at least once in a series arc.

This is not to say I hated this book (though I did like the first one in the series better). I just wish I could suspend my need for reasonable literary trappings a little more easily.

At least it was good fluff.

I agree! I like Chick Lit...on occasion. It's fluff, and that's all it's meant to be.

I read the first book in this series. I liked it.

Yeah, I definitely liked the first book better. The plot on this one just bugged me a bit. (I won't go into detail, lest I spoil the entire book.) There's another one coming next year. I'll definitely read that one, in hopes it's more like the first.
