I Really Thought I Was Going to Love This Book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real with the Housewife Who Does It All (Hardcover)
I purchased this book as a gift for a friend (I'm having second thoughts about giving it to her)...I'm more of a Lisa Vanderpump girl (and I do have her book, which was done very nicely) but my friend is a big fan of Kyle from the Housewives show, so I thought this would be an awesome gift. Without cracking open the book, I realized first, that the pages are not pretty and glossy like other books priced in this range and in this genre normally are...very cheap. But...I decided to give the book anyway, hoping that the content would be better. Another friend of mine happened to get the book on her Kindle and was complaining about how terrible it was...her tips are very generic (she has been very vocal about using Pantene) and her style of writing is hard to follow and elementary. If I can find my friend another gift, I'm likely going to return this one. (Keep in mind, I'm a huge fan of silly reads like this - I loved books from people like Maria Menounos (her book is filled from front to back with great tips), Kimora (awesome read) and Lisa Vanderpump (even if you don't enjoy the content, the book itself is at least very lovely to have on the shelves). Super disappointing!
