Loved it... Dec 12, 2006
I honestly loved this book. The characters seemed to be real people rather than just characters in a book. I felt as though I was with friends because although most of the time I loved them, there were times when they annoyed me greatly. In all honesty, one of my favorite things about the book was the titles to each chapter. It was much more fun than the boring "chapter one" thing you see in most books. If you enjoy reading chick lit...give this book a try. You will probably end up enjoying it!
Add "Hip" to your summer reading list! Jul 1, 2006
Lyda's "Hip to Be Square" is funny, honest and full of great dialogue. Mari is a reflective, irreverent AND faith-filled character who shares the fears and hopes of many women, not just those about to turn 30! Aided and abetted by a hilarious trio of friends, Mari sets out to make over her less than glamorous life as an activities director at a retirement home and the fun begins...
Didn't even bother to finish it.... May 28, 2006
Going by the other reviews I am obviously in the minority with this one.
Maybe I was not the target demographic but in all honesty I made it about half way through the book and then my roommate asked to borrow it when she went on holiday. The fact that I let her borrow it when I was halfway through it shows how little I cared about the characters, the plot or was inspired to find out what had happened to either of them. And I've never bothered to get it back.
My roommate who did persevere to the end recommended one and a half stars. I'm giving it two in the hope that the second half that I didn't read is superior to the first.
If you're new to Christian chick lit then go for the Spa Girls series by Kristin Billerbeck or the Phoebe Grant series by Laura Jensen Walker.
Loved it! Jan 7, 2006
It was totally fun! The characters have more depth than your average chick lit, and there were all sorts of fun surprises throughout the book, even if you had an idea they were coming. Lyda creates a totally loveable character, a perfct prince, and a page turning novel that left me with a huge smile on my face. I actually jumped with joy at the last chapter! Awesome find!
This Books Speaks to a Woman's Heart Sep 5, 2005
When this book entered my life, I wondered if I, a 42-year-old married mother of two, could relate to the adventures of a single heroine. The answer is a resounding "Yes"! I enjoyed this book immensely. It kept my entertained and guessing about the outcome. Hope Lyda is a clever writer and I appreciated her wit and humor. I can't wait to read whatever she writes next!
