Trading Up by Candace Bushnell

Heroine: Janey Wilcox
Grade: F

Candace Bushnell is turning heads . . .

The New York Times bestseller, now in paperback.

When Trading Up was published in July, readers from coast to coast devoured the sharp-witted, Jane Austin-esque story of Janey Wilcox's unsteady climb to the top of Manhattan's social scene. It became THE hot book -- and the numbers prove it: We've sold more than 250,000 copies to date. To top it off, Candace Bushnell was the apple of the press's eye. Her signature glamour, poise, and humor lit up TV screens, newspapers, and magazines across America.

While Janey Wilcox may want to be on top, it's clear that Candace Bushnell's Trading Up IS on top. With an even wider paperback audience, who knows how much higher she can climb?

Candace Bushnell is the author of the international bestsellers Sex and the City and 4 Blondes. She has been a columnist for The New York Observer and was a contributing editor for Vogue. She lives in New York City.

I thought I would like this book, because it looked spunky and cute and I was in the mood for chick lit...but I couldn't connect with the characters, I couldn't stand Janey Wilcox, she was just one of the most shallowest people I have ever had the displeasure to read about and her desire to be one of the leading ladies of the richest of the rich, totally turned me off.

I picked this book up, last month, maybe it was the month before, its been so long I can't even remember, but needless to say again, I just couldn't care for this book.

It's characters are superficial, fake and just about the worst sort of people, EVER. Janey was horrible to her sister, Patti (her sister) was a crybaby and Seldon Rose? OMGosh, talk about loser...don't even get me started on Mimi and Mauve and Comstock...the entire book just bored me to tears so much, that I just can't bring myself to read it...hated it!

Don't bother reading it, I give it a stamp grade of: F!
