Details: What's Your Status? by Katie Finn, 368 pages, 3.47 stars on Goodreads
My Thoughts: I started reading this book without really knowing what to expect. I'd only heard the title mentioned and not any reviews, but it sounded like a neat book. I've always liked books that tie in technological thingies like Twitter, Facebook, blog posts, and so forth, so I thought this would be a nice one. Given the synopsis, I figured that this would be a fluffy, chick-lit book, and it was. However, even if it was fluffy, it was cute and funny.
The main thing I didn't like about What's Your Status? is that I had a lot of trouble relating to the main characters. I didn't care too much one way or another what happened to them, and at points, I had to drag myself through. I do have to say that I was able to get into it for relatively long periods of time. You know that slightly fuzzy feeling you get when you slip into a book for an hour or so? I was able to get that feeling with this one.
What's Your Status is an okay read - not something I'd recommend, but I wouldn't recommend you against it.
