This week I'm sharing... 

Here's the synopsis:
Molly Hallberg is a thirty-nine-year-old divorced writer living in New York City who wants her own column, a Wikipedia entry, and to never end up in her family’s Long Island upholstery business. For the past four years Molly’s been on staff for an online magazine, covering all the wacky assignments. She’s snuck vibrators through security scanners, speed-dated undercover, danced with Rockettes, and posed nude for a Soho art studio.

Fearless in everything except love, Molly is now dating a forty-four-year-old chiropractor. He’s comfortable, but safe. When Molly is assigned to write a piece about New York City romance "in the style of Nora Ephron," she flunks out big-time. She can’t recognize romance. And she can’t recognize the one man who can go one-on-one with her, the one man who gets her. But with wit, charm, whip-smart humor, and Nora Ephron’s romantic comedies, Molly learns to open her heart and suppress her cynicism in this bright, achingly funny novel.


Here are my thoughts:
I received a copy of this book in return for my honest, unbiased review.

I had high hopes for this book.  It sounds hilarious from the description.  But I was left wanting a little more.  A little more comedy, a little more spark, a little more to draw me in.  Molly as a character gets a little too depressing at times for my taste.  I'll give this one 3 out of 5 stars.

What are you currently reading??

I have found that most books I get sent for review aren't that great. What a bummer though.

Oh that sucks. The description sounds good too! :/

It did sound good. This is one of those I might look for at the library if I need something to read.
