Spin (Spin #1) Reviews
Utterly forgettable. In fact, I'm not entirely sure why I bothered to finish this one on the first place. Somehow, despite this book being a totally bloated 425 pages long, I felt like I didn't know anything about our protagonist, Katie. Even though the book wrapped up all of its loose ends, I felt like nothing got solved. I don't even know where this book took place, other than some unnamed city in the East, with a guest appearance by a mountain resort rehab which I guess was also East. My best ...more
Spin is a fun, fast read for all of those 20-somethings (or who still feel like 20-somethings) who know exactly how it is to go out there and have just "one drink" ;)
I loved Katie and her fun personality. Landing a job at firm of her dreams was everything that she wanted and when she finally gets the opportunity... yeaaa she gets wasted. But no she doesn't have a problem and even going to rehab for a job to spy on a celebrity doesn't stop her.
Believing she doesn't need treatment (just like every ...more
The whole time I was reading this I felt like I’d read it before, not really something to strive for. It was predictable and didn’t have strong teeth. But it was an entertaining read. Great for the beach or short flight
This book amazed me.
I was first drawn to "Spin" one day, when in the teen section of my local bookstore. Next to all the vampire romance and other such teen trends of the moment, a realistic, unique novel like this jumped right out at me.
I HAD to read it, no exceptions.
Because of where I bought this book from, I was somewhat surprised by the thirty-year-old heroine, but quickly became grateful that this book could focus on adult characters, and yet have a voice so familiar to all readers.

“Hi. My name is Katie. I’m a writer, and um . . . I’m an alcoholic.”
“Hi, Katie!” says the group.
“Wrebbit!” says TGND
The gist. Katie has a dream job. She wants to be able to write at this magazine she's been dying to be part of. There's an opening (a grace from heaven) and make do to prep and fill up her credentials. She gets too excited and gets way out of hand that ends her in a drunken stupor with the interview on the next day. So she went (15 minutes late) still in buzz and haze. Of cours ...more
I liked this book - very entertaining and well written. Look forward to reading more from Catherine McKenzie.
“Imagine if Bridget Jones fell into A million little pieces, flew over the cuckoo’s nest and befriended Lindsey Lohan along the way.” Okay I might have stolen that quote from the back of the book but it does describe Spin perfectly, so I couldn’t help myself.
This was a fantastic read and from a new Canadian author no less. Totally relatable, addictive and hilarious, I had trouble putting this one down. It's written along the lines of Sophia Kinsley’s Confessions of a Shopaholic series or as I m ...more
