Milkrun - Sarah Mlynowski

Summary:  Must think happy thoughts. Julie Andrews dancing. Cadbury's chocolate Easter eggs.

But no amount of positive thinking changes the fact that Jeremy—the man of my dreams, the man I would marry, the man who should spend his whole life worshipping me and lavishing me with kisses—went to Thailand to find himself.

Obviously I'm not as cute and witty as I thought I was, since while I've been sitting around every weekend, he's been sleeping with half of Thailand. And then he found Someone Else. That someone not being me.

I have been pathetic.

But now I will date. I will become the queen of dating. I will forget all about him.

Single in Boston, that's me. But not for long…!  (Summary from book - Image from barnesandnoble.com )



My Review: For the life of me I cannot figure out how this book came to live on my bookshelf.  Milkrun has been taking up valuable shelf space for way too long.  I suppose at one point in my early twenties, I was amused by the bubbly personality featured in the summary and threw it in the cart.  It has sat unnoticed on my bookshelf for quite some time until this morning when I was looking for a quick and easy read. 

Alas, I am older now and it didn't take me more than twenty-one pages to realize that I would likely lose IQ points if I continued to read any more of the main character's vapid, stream-of-consciousness ramblings.  I hated her almost instantly.  In my opinion, she deserved to be dumped by her well-traveled boyfriend and, since I had no interest in seeing her happy, I decided not to waste my time. 

How's that for truth? 

My Rating: 1 Star -- didn't finish.

For the sensitive reader:  From what I read, there was plenty of profanity and some sexually suggestive dialogue.

Sum it up:  I have better things to read.  Like the instructions that came with my flat iron.
