The Good Girlfriend’s Guide to Getting Even
By Anna Bell
Genre: Chick Lit
Read my review of another Anna Bell book here.
4 out of 5 chickadees singing!
This book was pretty hilarious and had quite a few moments where I was chuckling out loud and my husband looked at me like I was crazy! In this novel, Lexi finds out her sports-obsessed boyfriend, Will, skipped out on her close friend’s wedding to attend a sporting event! Will doesn’t know that Lexi knows, so she decides to get even with him before she confronts him. She decides that she will make him miss some sporting events for revenge. Lexi is also trying to become an author so when she has an assignment in her writing class to start a blog, she ends up writing about her attempts to “get even.”
One thing I thought could be improved upon would be to make Lexi more likable, as I started feeling so bad for Will, and eventually got annoyed with her deception. The second thing was that the book was also pretty predictable, as I figured out the ending of the book pretty quickly. These were minor critiques and I still really enjoyed the book.
This is a great, fluffy chick lit mixed with some humor and some romance. I liked that there was somewhat of a secondary love interest character for Lexi. That was an interesting subplot. When the story ends, there are a few fun “extras” at the end of the book- one is an article written by Lexi about what to do if your significant other is sport’s obsessed. I would recommend this book to ANY fan of chick lit!
