Bread Alone by Judith Ryan Hendricks

Bread Alone - Judi Hendricks

What a horrible, horrible book! I didn't realize it was a chick lit book until I received it in the mail and it was really bad. The conversation was bad, the plot sucked, and the cutesy phrases used were a waste. So many brand names were mentioned that it was distracting and the characters were so poorly developed. The main character was pathetic and shallow, and she did things without proper reason or explanation. A total waste of time and I just want to destroy all copies of this book!
