Looking Back - Crazy For You

Looking Back... In an effort to transfer my book journal entries over to this blog, I'm going to attempt to post (in chronological order) an entry every Friday. I may or may not add extra commentary to what I jotted down in these journals.

Publisher's Blurb:

Quinn McKenzie has always lived what she calls a "beige" life. She's dating the world's nicest guy, she has a good job as a high school art teacher, she's surrounded by family and friends who rely on her, and she's bored to the point of insanity. But when Quinn decides to change her life by adopting a stray dog over everyone's objections, everything begins to spiral out of control. Now she's coping with dog-napping, breaking and entering, seduction, sabotage, stalking, more secrets than she really wants to know, and two men who are suddenly crazy...for her.

My Original Thoughts (2001):

I didn't think I was going to like this book when I started it. I thought it was a typical "fluff" read with simplistic characters and predictable events. Ok, maybe it was "fluff," but I became engrossed nonetheless! Got choked up a couple of times and laughed out loud several times. I plan to read more by Crusie. Good airplane read. 

My Current Thoughts:

Well, I have yet to read anything else by Crusie and I don't think I will. Fluffy novels don't appeal to me at this point in my life. 


  1. I haven't read anything by Crusie but I will check this book out since you gave it such a high rating.

    1. Vicki, I wish I could remember more about this book. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. It's interesting how our tastes change. I find I am not reading YA books as much since I left education.

    1. I agree, Helen. I believe I have many years of reading ahead of me, but I also don't want to waste those years reading books that no longer appeal to me.
