The Best Day of Someone Else's Life

The Best Day of Someone Else's Life
by Kerry ReichsRating: ***

Kevin "Vi" Connelly is the ultimate bridesmaid. When she was young she was hit with the wedding bug and from that day forward she lapped up anything having to do with weddings. However, now in her mid 20's and with a TON of friends getting engaged Vi had decided that maybe there's more to life than weddings. Throw in airplane rides, expensive dresses, wedding gifts and more and Vi is realizing that her bank account cannot take all that attention! 11 weddings in 18 months is enough to make anyone want to do away with weddings for good but in the midst of it all Vi discovers some important things about herself and her life.

I picked this book up because it sounded SO much like the movie 27 Dresses. When I started it I found myself a little bored but once the book picked up I was drawn in. While there are a few similarities to 27 Dresses (falling in love with weddings from a young age) there definitely aren't many. I found the book funny and endearing, with likable characters and a decent ending. Not a HUGE love story but it definitely kept my attention until the last page.
