Good in Bed

Title: "Good in Bed"

Author: Jennifer Weiner

Type: Chick Lit

Book Type: Paperback

Pages: 400

Synopsis: Cannie is a pop culture reporter whose life is going well until she opens up a magazine to see that her ex-boyfriend has written a tell-all article for the magazine he works for about "loving a larger woman" and how it takes courage to date a larger woman. Cannie is humiliated ... and livid. The rest of the book deals with Cannie dealing with the upheaval in her life and learning to face her past so she can figure out who she can become.

My Thoughts: When I initially picked up "Good in Bed" I thought it was going to be a very simple and typical "chick lit" about an overweight woman and her dating and weight-loss woes. This book could have easily copied many other books that had the same theme but this book was different because it takes the humourous road. Cannie is a very likable and real character who is on a journey to change how people see her as well as change how she views herself. The book delves back into Cannie's childhood so the reader can understand where Cannie's feelings of self-doubt stem from. This is a good book if you're in the mood for something light with some good humour in it.

My Rating: 4/5 (a very good read)
