She makes me want good things to happen for them. My favorite story is Platinum, the one featuring a paranoid princess.

Of all the bad books I have read, this is pobably the one that I can say was the worst. And that’s not so bad. I am going to the ballet. In her first book since the cultural phenomenon Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell triumphantly returned with the national best-seller Four Blondes, which The New York Times says “chronicles the glittering lives of semicelebrities, social aspirants, and moneyed folk I should have known better.

I get the Sex and the City thing- I even loved the show for the first few seasons before cajdace became walking cliches of superficiality and excess, but tha Before I launch into another diatribe about the enormous amount of crap that is this book, let me say that dandace CAN be smart, it can be fun and it can YES PLEASE have a protagonist that, while interested in dating and mating, isn’t obsessed over it or derive ALL of her self-esteem from it.

Beautiful women are stupid because they don’t have to try. Spare yourself this or any of Bushnell’s tripe and go read some Marian Keyes.

Beautiful women are self-indulgent. It was the best of blondes — it was the worst of blondes. Candice actually created brand new characters that felt very much alike.

Okay this book is disgusting – but i was trying to get a feel for the popularity of Candace Bushnell of sex in the city fame without watching sex in the city.

I like watching Sex and the City, a funny and interesting television show about four female friends and their love lives in the city. I’m going to include some quotes now just to illustrate the strangeness and awkwardness of the story, and also to bring to light some of the stereotyping and weight shaming.
