Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

My recent Amazon Vine pick - Spin by Catherine McKenzie - made it to the top of my review stack this week. This is a contemporary novel about a young woman who wants a job as a journalist bad enough to follow the latest star to rehab to get the dirt on her. It is really different than the kind of thing I usually read. There isn't a sparkly paranormal creature anywhere in sight.

This is how I lose my dream job.
I'll have to agree that showing up late and drunk doesn't give the impression she would like to give.

Friday 56:
At the time of the last email (11:24 PM), Greer was clearly drunk.
This sounds like it could be entertaining in a very self-destructive kind of way.


  1. I can't wait to get this one! I preordered it from Amazon for my Kindle....arriving 2/7.

    Love the sound of it.
