Journal Entry 9 by jenvince from Scottsdale, Arizona USA on Monday, April 11, 2005
I have actually already read this as part of another bookring, so I let my friend read this copy in my place. I did tell her she had to provide comments for the journal entry so here they are:
"Great read. The style of writing was interesting, however it was a disappointing and abrupt ending."

Update 4/21: This is in the mail today to crrcookie.

Journal Entry 10 by crrcookie from Tecumseh, Oklahoma USA on Tuesday, April 26, 2005
Just got this in the mail today. This looks to be an interesting book. Bookrings/rays are always top priority and so I will be getting this read and out the door within a week or so.

Caught in Kaiserslautern, GERMANY!

Journal Entry 11 by crrcookie from Tecumseh, Oklahoma USA on Thursday, May 05, 2005
Well, it looks like this book has come to the end of the list. I pm'ed spaceystacey and she asked to be skipped. I have spoken with bksfamly and he/she has indicated that he/she would like the book to return home.

As for my comments on the book....

I found it to be a light easy read that went rather quickly. I am not sure if I would give it rave reviews but it is a decent book with lots of funny moments.

I had a little problem with some of the flow of the book but I think that can be attributed to the diary style in which it is written. I am not sure if this is supposed to be based on a true story or not but if it is totally fiction then I think that several of the "bridal problems" could have been improved in the sense of making it more believeable.

I think my favorite part was near the end at the 7-11 store. It is nice to know that there are still people out there that will help some one in need.

Wow this is funny. I received a Pm from Rosie Posie inquiring is this book still had not arrived, and it had, just 1 minute ago !!

Oops Read the first page and now I am worried Rowena is stealing this book also. Last week Missy send me a surprise rabck, a chick lit. The next day I wanted to register it, and I could not find it. With lots of swearing I searched the house. That evening Rowena told me she wanted a book, I told her, O you hardly read anymore. She said kind of pissed off, Huh I am reading right now, I asked, which book, guess what? yes, Missy's book. lol.(She also stole the book plate Missy made. where is my whip)

Well I think you have made 2 people happy by sending this book. Thanks Rosie Posie Pudding and Pie.

OK. I have to be honest and say I did not like this book very much. I did read all of it, but never laughed. Did not think it funny at all.
Maybe because I've never been married, and it is very American ( American weddings are very different than Dutch weddings it seems. So many bridesmaids, if we have any they are kids, not adults.lol) not sure, but it was not a great chick lit book.
I think that people who can relate more to this kind of werdding, will like the book, they can relate more.
Thanks for sharing. I will probably offer it in another swap. (don't you think Rosie :-) )

Journal Entry 19 by CrazyDutchwoman from Heemstede, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Thursday, December 07, 2006
Got to check. I see I put this book on reserved. I thought I had offered it in one of the swaps, but now I can't find it.

Will have to do a thourough search . Planning to release it one way or the other. Book needs to travel some more. :)

Journal Entry 21 by AnnevO from Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Monday, February 26, 2007
I took this book from the Book box; I will give it to a friend who is planning her wedding at the moment. I might read it first, since I usually like diary-style chick lit.

Journal Entry 22 by AnnevO from Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Thursday, June 21, 2007
I ended up reading this book while on Eurostar and leaving this book with my cousin who lives in England. She will most likely release it at a wedding.
