Book Review: Purse'averance: To be wanted, to be chosen, was just the beginning

Side note: This is my first book review on this blog.  Since this is also a fashion blog, I think that this book is more than appropriate for me to share with you.

         Purse'averance’ written by Gwen E. Campbell tells the story of a genuine suede  purse with a shiny buckle. It pretty much explains what the purse went through before finding the perfect owner, whom she will later call "My Girl". The genuine purse with the shiny buckle moved from the basement to the half price table at a huge department store a few times before "Her Girl" bought her and took her home with her. Upon arriving at her owner's house, she met her owners family. She also met the other accessories once she made it to the closet. What happened next is a series of conversations between the accessories. The Genuine Suede purse is a talker. She only listens when she wants to. If only our accessories could talk to us? Can you imagine your shoes telling you to get a pedicure before stepping into them?  

"There is no honor in being on the half-price table, it means simply, no one wanted me."

What I think
            It's  hard not to fall in love with the main character and the narrator of the story, Genuine Suede Purse. She is sassy and funny. She is loving and strong. The drama is real in the closet! Winter coat and Suede purse became good friends right away, but the same was not true for some other accessories in the closet. While the book is a fun and short read, something was missing in the beginning. The story was very weak, to say the least. A story about accessories that talk is pretty new to me, which makes the book so unique. But  The real excitement came when the purse went missing, and that happened in chapter four.  That's when the book became a page turner for me. The humor in the book is what kept me going. Purse'averance' will have you laughing all the way to the end. I really enjoyed reading it.  Give it a try. You will love it.
