Slightly Engaged

slightly engagedOk. I know. It's chick-lit. I know I shouldn't expect much. But man, was I ever disappointed with Wendy Markham's Slightly Engaged.

You see, I rather liked the first one in this series, Slightly Single. Yeah she was doing that stupid girl thing of hanging onto a guy who treated her like crap but I could forgive her for that. She did other things for herself and in the end kinda came into her own and I enjoyed that.

Then came Slightly Settled. It was ok. I didn't like the guy she was dating. Whatever. It wasn't great, it wasn't horrible.

This one? Just plain bad. I reallllly disliked it. I got soooooo annoyed with Tracey. Whine, whine whine. Why won't my boyfriend propose. Whine. Everyone else is getting engaged and married and I'm such a loser cause I'm not. Whine. My life will end if I don't get engaged. Whine. Cause I'm getting too old to not be engaged or married. Whine. (She is 25 by the way...).

And the end is such a blatant prop for another book in the series. While it doesn't say "...to be continued" it does say "but that's another story" so guess what??? We can expect another book.

What a shock.

I hate it when a good (well, by chick-lit standards anyway) book turns into a bad series.
