My Rating

It’s a summer to remember . . . at the Jersey Shore.

Giovanna “Gia” Spumanti and her cousin Isabella “Bella” Rizzoli are going to have the sexiest summer ever. While they couldn’t be more different—pint-size Gia is a carefree, outspoken party girl and Bella is a tall, slender athlete who always holds her tongue—for the next month they’re ready to pouf up their hair, put on their stilettos, and soak up all that Seaside Heights, New Jersey, has to offer: hot guidos, cool clubs, fried Oreos, and lots of tequila.

The cousins soon realize that for every friend they make on the boardwalk, there are also rivals, slummers, and frenemies who will do anything to ruin their summer—and try their relationship. Before July ends, the bonds of family and friendship will be stretched to the breaking point. Will the haters prevail, or will Gia and Bella find love at the Shore?

With Season 3 of Jersey Shore kicking off January 6th, why not kick it off with a review of Snooki's debut book 'A Shore Thing'.

I have to admit that Jersey Shore is a guilty pleasure of mine, and when I heard that Snooki was coming out with a book I thought "Really?". But then my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to step out of my little reading bubble and give it a try, and I'm happy I did. This book definitely surprised me. I was expecting 290 pages of a Jersey Shore episode but it offered so much more. I read this book right after reading a heavy book so the light read was very refreshing. It is packed with humour, hilarious scenarios and great one-liners. There was a specific scene at a house party that involved Snooki and a "Juice head Gorilla" that had me laughing so hard I was choking.

The Book is fictional but you can't help but connect the main character Gia to Snooki. They both share the same corky, free spirited personality all in a pint sized body. A Shore Thing was a great light and breezy read that I would definitely re-read on a beach or patio again some day. There was the obvious partying scenes and wild escapades that you would expect from a Summer in The Jersey Shore but the book was also packed with a loyal and unbreakable friendship between Gia and her cousin Bella. There were heartfelt moments, scary moments and hilliarious moments. This book definitely took me by surprise. Even if your not a fan of the Jersey Shore, I would still recommend this book. It's light, fun and perfect to read under the sun.
