THE GOOD GIRLFRIEND’S GUIDE TO GETTING EVEN ANNA BELL
|Unputdownable. I loved reading every page of this funny romance story. Anna Bell has become one of my favourite authors. How I wish that I could write a novel as good as The Good Girlfriend’s Guide to Getting Even.
I would love to read The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart and Don’t Tell the Boss.
Oh dear Lexi’s sport-mad boyfriend Will tells Lexi one big lie and he is about to be in big trouble. Will and Lexi are invited to one of Lexi’s best friends wedding. Unlike Lexi, Will hates weddings with passion. On the day of Vanessa’s wedding Lexi finds Will doubled over with a bad belly ache. Poor Lexi has to go to Vanessa and Ian’s wedding on her own. But she does feel the teeniest bit sad leaving Will at home spending his time in the toilet.
While Lexi is at the wedding she opens a text there is a picture of Will. To her horror Will is not tucked up in bed liked she thought he would be, but instead he is dressed in his red and white Southampton football shirt starring at the TV camera. Will lied faked his illness and made Lexi go to the wedding alone so he could go to a football match.
Watch out Lexi is about to get even.
I loved the twist in this well written story. If you read Sophie Kinsella books then you will most certainly enjoy Anna Bell. I’m now hooked into the author Anna Bell. I will certainly read her other books in future . I enjoyed this fun romantic book so much that I am now following Anna Bell on Goodreads.

THE ONE MEMORY OF FLORA BANKS EMILY BARR
|Absolutely brilliant. This story will stay with me for a long time.
Flora Banks found a letter saying that when she was ten a tumour grew in her brain and when she was eleven a surgeon took it out with her of memory going with it. Now Flora can’t remember how to do things and since that her memory has gone she can’t make new memories. She has anterograde amnesia and can keep memories in her head for only a couple of hours. Flora’s best friend is going out with Drake, but after a party Drake kisses Flora and Flora remembers this and writes it down so she never forgets the kiss. Things start go really bad for Flora after kissing her best friends boyfriend.
I can promise you that there are twists in this story that you won’t see coming and that’s why I highly recommend The One Memory Of Flora Banks.

THE HIT NADIA DALBUONO meant to be a blog tour. I received my blog tour banner for The Hit late this afternoon. I haven’t used the banner as it doesn’t have any of the names of blog tour hosts that are participating in The Hit blog tour. All blog tours that I have participated in have the blog tour hosts website address on.
WHO’S THAT GIRL BY MHAIRI MCFARLANE
When Edie is caught in a compromising position at her colleagues’ wedding, all the blame falls on her – turns out that popularity in the office is not that different from your schooldays. Shamed online and ostracised by everyone she knows, her boss suggests an extended sabbatical – ghost-writing an autobiography for hot new acting talent, Elliot Owen. Easy, right?
Wrong. Banished back to her home town of Nottingham, Edie is not only dealing with a man who probably hasn’t heard the word ‘no’ in a decade, but also suffering an excruciating regression to her teenage years as she is forced to move back in with her widowed father and judgey, layabout sister.
When the world is asking who you are, it’s hard not to question yourself. Who’s that girl? Edie is ready to find out.
‘Was that free?’ barked the sixty-something man with the hearing aid, dressed as a posh country squire, eyes fixed on the glass in Edie’s hand. Edie and Louis had been put on
the odds and sods, ‘hard work, nothing in common’ table. The others had immediately abandoned the hard work and scattered, in the longueur between meal and disco. This sod remained, with his timid-looking, equally tweedy wife. ‘Er, no? I can get you something if you like?’ ‘No, don’t bother. You come to these bloody interminable
things and they fleece you like sheep. As if the gift list wasn’t brass neck enough. Four hundred pounds for some bloody ugly blue cake whisk, the silly clots. Oh hush, Deirdre, you know I’m right.’ Edie plopped down in her banqueting chair and tried not to laugh, because she thought the Kitchen Aid was a rinse, too. She swigged the acidic white wine and thanked the Lord for the gift of alcohol to get through this. The top table passed the microphone down the line to the groom, Jack. He tapped his glass with a fork and coughed into a curled fist. His sleeve was tugged by his new mother-in-law. He put a palm up to indicate, ‘Sorry, in a second, folks.’ ‘What’s this crackpot notion of wearing brown shoes with a blue suit and a pink tie, nowadays?’ said hearing aid man, of the groom’s attire. ‘Anyone would think this was a lavender liaison.’ Edie thought Jack’s tall, narrow frame in head-to-toe springsummer Paul Smith looked pretty great but she wasn’t about to defend him.‘What’s a lavender liaison?’ Louis said.‘A marriage of convenience, to conceal one’s true nature. When one’s interests lie elsewhere.’ ‘Oh, I see. We’re having one of those,’ he grinned, clasping Edie to him.‘Forgive me if I don’t scrabble for my inhaler in shock,’ he said, looking at Louis’s quiffed hair. ‘I had you down as someone who likes to smell the flowers.’ Edie had heard more inventive euphemisms for ‘homosexual’ than she expected today. ‘Think you’ll ever bother with marriage?’ Louis said, under his breath. ‘I think it’s more whether marriage will ever bother with me,’ Edie said. ‘Babe. Loads of people would marry you. You’re so “wife”. I look at you and think “WIFE ME”.’ Edie laughed, hollowly. ‘Surprised they’re not making this known to me then.’ ‘You’re an enigma, you know . . .’ Louis said, prodding the bottom of his glass with the plastic stirrer. Edie’s stomach tensed,
