Bookity, bookity, book club!!
This week, if you can believe it or not, I read A Shore Thing by everyone's favourite guidette - Snooki.
Yes folks, I really did it. And the most unexpected part?
I loved it!
I know, I'm just as surprised as you are but it's true. A Shore Thing is freaking hilarious. I was hooked from start to finish.
Enter Gia, a character who's clearly based on Snooki. She's a take-no-prisoners gal on the hunt for her man and a good time. She goes to the Jersey Shore for a month with her cousin Isabella (Bella, Bells, Hells Bells), who seems an awful lot like J-Wow. While Gia's ready to get the party started, Bella's a little more hesitant, after coming out of a long-term and bad-news relationship.
Sound just like The Jersey Shore? Well, it pretty much is. Only funnier.
There are juice-head gorillas, douchey out-of-towners, hilarious cougars and enough tequila shots to fill up every pool in Jersey. Throw in some amphibian rescues, a couple of fires, elaborate plans for revenge and a trip to the police station and you've got yourself a winner.
I also picked up a few beauty tricks I'd been unaware of. For instance, it's possible to wear two sets of false eyelashes at the same time. Also, it's important to put cream on the bottom of your feet before getting a spray-tan. Oh
Snooki Gia, you're a gold mine!
But for reals guys. It really is a fun read. Whether or not Snooki actually wrote it doesn't really matter. Her witty quips are all over the place, as well as the occasional "Waaa." So if you like watching The Jersey Shore, but are over The Situation and Ronnie-Sammie-drama, then pick up A Shore Thing. The female MCs are strong, fierce women who leave a wake of destruction behind them.
Destruction with broken hearts and a few bruises from a paintball gun.
All-in-all, I give this baby five fist pumps out of five.
