My review:

      Lexy is senior in high school and she supposed to be an editor of her school’s newspaper, but things just happened and she and her family needed to move in Texas. Lexy is furious, but she must accept this, even if it’s hard, because she is senior, it’s supposed to be the last year in high school and she is editor now.
In Texas Lexy builds a new life. Despite that in Lexy’s new school going just snobby, spoiled and rich kids she finds new friends Peyton, Kris and Brian. Lexy’s life is not that simple, because in the very beginning she gets unwanted attention of Blythe, the Princesses of the school, very rich and famous girl in whole town. Lexy is brave and smart girl and she receives well the strikes of life. Life is cruel sometimes and gives us such a strike and we couldn’t manage what to do and how to do the right things.
     I just love this book. The story is perfect it’s just like Cinderella in modern world; also the characters are so real that I think that they spoke to me. It’s interesting to read how Lexy adapts to the new environment and to new situation which life bring in to her and I also like how the author smart and unobtrusive bring religion in the book.
     To read about love of Lexy and …no I want tell you that you must read the book…is like to melt like candle and every time when I read about this love shivers crawl on my body.

My rating 5/5(amazing book)

My review:
       Mackenzie is ordinary girl; she is junior in high school. She has a life as any other teen age girl. On first day at school when she is trying to find a directions where to goes she meets her friend Kira and Ramon, the guy which she likes. The school days passed by without any troubles and the summer holiday is here. Kira must go in Russia for the summer. What to do Mackenzie without Kira, besides Kira was mad of her. Without her friend Kira Mackenzie was hangout with Ramon first and then with some guys Cody and Shane. Days were passing by, so Kira is back, but the things started to be kind of different.
      The book is written in first person. Mackenzie tells the story. Maybe that was the reason that I don’t sense the narrative tone in the book. I love when the book is written in that, narrative tone it’s like the author or that person who tells the story speaks to me. Mackenzie is little bit na├»ve, she is here and there and something was missing in her character, I was trying to find what but I couldn't.
    This book is easy for reading; there aren't many twists and turns or amusements which could distract your attention.

My review:
      Kat is great young woman, owner of beauty shop independent and gorgeous. With beauty face and body of goddess she is every man’s fantasy, but she is unsecure in many things in her life, because the fate was cruel with her family when she was a thirteen years old. She was forced to grow up early and now what to do with a baby in her belly? Kat and Max are in love about sex months, she is pregnant but he doesn’t know that. Everything will be easy if his mother was friendlier with Kat. Kat‘s sister Libby is acting like spoiled child, without constant job and with many boyfriends she is really a mess.  There is her best friend Suzy, which is prepared to do everything for Kat and is here when Kat needed her. Now is Kat turn to be with her.  So now you know that Kat life is a chaos.
      I started to read this book about five days ago, but I actually did read it for four hours. I send those four hours enjoying with admiration at the author who wrote such a wonderful book.
There is no woman that can’t identify with Kat. Reading about Kat’s problems I find myself in her thoughts. There are very deep considerations, doubts that a woman found in everyday life and obstacles that passes by. She solved her problems and dialed with the problems of the people in her life facing persons which are wants to trample her.
      Considering the high heels and other woman stuff on the cover of the book I tough that this would be a good rom-com book with laugh out loud, but I got really awesome book with many tears. I was crying when I read about Kat’s considerations and doubts and I really enjoy. Oh, you must thinking that I’m crazy finding crying enjoyable, but let me explain, I enjoy in the book because  it’s so dramatic and narrative, as Kat speaks to me just like that I was her friend.
My rating: 5/5 (amazing book).

About the Author:


After learning to read aged just two, Jessica spent every childhood party hiding in bedrooms in case the birthday girl had a book or two she hadn’t read yet. Discovering Mills and Boon on a family holiday Jessica realised that romance writing was her true vocation and proceeded to spend her maths lessons practising her art, creating Dynasty inspired series starring herself and Morton Harket’s cheekbones. Writing for Mills and Boon really is a dream come true!
An ex au pair, bookseller, marketing manager and Scarborough seafront trader selling rock from under a sign that said ‘Cheapest on the Front’,  Jessica now works as a Membership Manager for a regional  environmental charity. Sadly she spends most of her time chained to her desk wrestling with databases but likes to sneak out to one of their beautiful reserves whenever she gets a chance. Married to an extremely patient man, Jessica lives in the beautiful and historic city of York with one daughter, one very fluffy dog, two dog-loathing cats and a goldfish called Bob.
On the rare occasions that she is not writing, working, taking her daughter to activities or tweeting, Jessica likes to plan holidays – and uses her favourite locations in her books. She writes deeply emotional romance with a hint of humour, a splash of sunshine and usually a great deal of delicious food – and equally delicious heroes.

My review:

     After she was laid off from work young American Hannah goes to live in UK. She spends few weeks in her hotel, which is not like ads represent it. After many self convictions and many telephone calls with her best friend from US she decides to search London’s pubs for little love and London’s agencies for decent job. With many hilarious moment she will finds best friends and housemates.
     This is hilarious book, I was laughed to tears in all those “spectacles’’ that Hannah passes through. First most laughable moments are when Hannah passing cultural barriers, second are job issues and third her weekend with Potential.
    The book isn’t just laugh, but it’s deep as well. The author reveals us how it looks like when someone left the borders of his/her homeland and decide to lives in other country different from his/her homeland. Most important thing in the book is that Hannah living her life in London tries to find herself and to find what she really wants.
     I adore Hannah; she is funny, gorgeous and beautiful. I like how she manages alone, especially when she confronts her stilted boss; I also like when she passes weird moments. With few words Hannah is perfect main character in my opinion.
     If you like a book hilarious like Confession of a Shopaholic and if you like heroine like Bridged in Bridget Jones's Diary then this is perfect book for you.

My rating 5/5(amazing book)
