Rare Thursday Post - Book Review of A Bitch Named Karma by Stephanie Haefner


This book I just finished was a fun read. Had to post about it today! Here's my review:






Review of A Bitch Named Karma by Stephanie Haefner

When Stephanie Haefner posted on her blog she was offering review copies of A Bitch Named Karma, I had to have the book based on the title alone. I don’t usually read chick lit, but found myself thoroughly enjoying this one.

The book’s about chick lit writer Lexi Marshall as she faces her alter-ego persona Karma, who she thinks is the embodiment of all the horrible things she made happen to her characters in her books. I don’t want to give too much away, but Lexi has a ton of bad things happen to her. So they seem bad at the time…

I loved the writing style in this book. The voice was fresh and engaging and there were a lot of humorous parts. I found it really interesting how the text would occasionally be broken up into a paragraph of italics throughout the book. It seems like that would be distracting, but it was rather engaging.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a well-paced chick lit book with fun characters and interactions. Good job, Ms. Haefner!

I also figured out how to put the trailer in after I posted. You'll get more from that.
