Fashion Book–The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing
Due to last week’s heavy reading, I knew I needed a little bit of a light read this week. I picked up Melissa Bank’s The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing in my office lending library. I knew it was the dreaded “chick lit” but I didn’t care. I gave it a shot, and I actually ended up liking it a lot. The book is pretty funny and has some great lines. A few of the plot turns were predictable, but others weren’t, and besides one strange change in narration, I really didn’t have any problems with the writing. It doesn’t have a whole lot of depth, but the writing is strong and it’s entertaining.
Toward the end of the book, the main character, Jane, attends a friend’s wedding, and wears a chic black designer sheath. I decided to play with that idea and create a sophisticated New York wedding ensemble.
