Shoe Addicts Anonymous


And then, suddenly, totally out of the blue - you get the Call! Yup.. it happens! just like that! you get up one morning and you decide that you are in a chick-lit mood. Today happened to be one such day and thanks to G, I had the perfect book for the occasion - Shoe Addicts Anonymous by Beth Harbinson. Perfect book to read in one sitting. I started it in the evening and was done with the book even before i realized that it was time for dinner!
well, SAA is soo typically chick-lit and that's exactly what makes it so endearing. Four completely different women who would never have met otherwise get to meet thanks to the only thing they have in common - their love (rather, their addiction) for designer shoes.
A meeting to trade shoes grows into a beautiful friendship.. something that all four of them are desperately in need of (actually, one more similarity between them).
wait, there is a third similarity between them - they are each in deep issues - marital issues, weight issues, agorophobia, spending issues, etc etc.. the SAA meetings become their therapy sessions. They find strength to combat their issues and as you guessed.. it all ends happily..
the typically "happily ever after" kinda chick-lit ending.. and that's the best part of the book..
you spend a couple of hours and then you automatically get into a feel-good mode..
isn't that soo refreshing??
i am a total sucker for chick flicks and chick lits..:) they are my soul food!
the next time you get up in the morning and want to just snuggle in bed with a chick-lit and a bowl of popcorn, make sure you have the "shoe addicts anonymous" ready on your night stand!
