My Rating: 5 Stars

I can not remember the last time that I laughed so much and also wholeheartedly cried while reading a book. Sophie Kinsella has outdone herself with Twenties Girl and this is by far my favorite novel of hers... and this is coming from a HUGE fan of the Shopaholic Series. The story honestly touches your heart and you really feel for all of the characters. It's funny, it's touching and it makes you want to go and hug and sit down for a long chat with every one of your family members.

I have suggested Twenties Girl to all of my friends and I hope like them you take me up on my suggestion... you will not regret it!

My Rating: 5 Stars

I have just finished reading this book and honestly can not gush about it enough. The story was perfectly woven into a beautiful love story and the main characters are nothing short of wonderful.

I honestly cared about the characters and while Scarlett's stomach was doing gymnastics mine was right along with hers each time she got closer to Sean. The main character, Scarlett, is obsessed with the movies and I have found that I must be also. As different situations happen around her that remind her of one movie scene or another I was there also saying out loud what movie it was from. It was an amazing feeling as I was living the new moment through Scarlett but of course I was also remembering the movie and how it also made me feel the first time I watched it.

If you are reading this review and you have even a passing interest in 'Chick Flicks' or 'Chick Lit' then you must read this book! It made me very happy.

To me, it was perfect... and it had me at hello.

Reivew: Life... With No Breaks

My Rating: 5 Stars

I absolutely loved this book! I can not even count how many times I laughed out loud... and we are not talking a tiny chuckle here or there. They were proper tears in the eyes and belly laughs.

While reading I found myself many times talking out loud and answering questions that were being asked from Nick. I mean it would be rude not to answer right? This is why I could not read this book in public... between the laughs and me talking to myself people would have thought I was crazy.

As an American living in England I had no trouble at all with any of the British terms or words used. I strongly suggest this book to any Americans even if you are not living in England as Nick has added at the end a list of British terms/words and have explained what they mean. This made my day that he thought of those who are not from England.

All in all it was a great read and I didn't want it to end... I want, no I demand more Nick!
