Review: Love, Pinkie
The daily chronicles of Pinkie – tales of a girl’s fantasies and challenges. These writings, raw and introspective, expose the depths of her soul and awaken the dusty, forgotten corners of her life.
Living in a fast paced and wired up city of the 21st century, she wants to escape falling prey to materialism and obsession with vanity. Friends and family are roses to her, of both soft petals and prickly thorns. The singleton reminisce her love voyage with boys and girls while being aware of lust lurking around. The overcrowding of religions in this world caused her to question her beliefs. Through it all, the journey of self-discovery stirs the yearning to set sail towards her dreams.
I accepted the offer to review this book because it sounded like something I would absolutely love. It was just that, but it was completely different from what I expected. It covers many topics that every girl thinks about and lives through, in a fun and light way.
Pinkie is a fascinating character. I loved reading her stories, messages, and life long lessons. While I am nothing like her, I found myself agreeing with her throughout the book.
Christina's writing style blew me away. She is so in depth with her writing without over detailing anything. Her diction choices and fantastic metaphors kept the book interesting. I liked reading about all the different topics that Pinkie talked about, but I do wish that there was some suspense in the book.
Overall, I highly recommend this book. There is something in this book for everyone and it really gets you thinking. The ending was perfect and I look forward to anything else Christina writes. For more about Christina and Love, Pinkie, visit http://www.lovepinkie.com/.
