Review: "The Shoe Princess's Guide to the Galaxy" by Emma Bowd
Shoe Princess was an absolutely enjoyable read. Each of the characters had their own set of problems, yet somehow all of these problems came together to form a coherent plot. I especially loved the character of Jane's dad. He comes to stay with Jane and Millie when Jane's mother is away on a trip and he takes to caring for little Millie like a duck out of water. I could definitely use one of him at my house! The plot, while at times predictable in the way that good chick-lit is, was exciting and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. The conclusion was absolutely satisfying and left me wanting more (a Shoe Princess sequel, perhaps??). Interesting tidbits from the Shoe Princess blog were interspersed throughout and included helpful shoe tips as well as a quiz- "What kind of Shoe Princess are you?". If you're the type of shoe fashionista who enjoys shoe trivia and other entertaining tidbits you'll have to check out Emma Bowd's addictive blog, http://www.shoeprincess.com/.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys chick-lit and/or shoes as much as I do! The Shoe Princess's Guide to the Galaxy would make an excellent Christmas gift for the new mom, chick-lit lover, or shoe princess in your life! Stay tuned: Tomorrow I will be posting an interview with the author, Emma Bowd! She was kind enough to take time out of her schedule to answer a few of my burning questions and I'm thrilled to have her visiting my blog!!
