So put the electronic device down and grab a book. I simply adored this book! The protagonist of this novel is a very sweet girl Melissa. That's the best I can do. I don't mind reading light and fluffy books as long as they're fun and engaging, but I really just got through this one because I don This is one of those books hoping to ride the coattails of the Bridget Jones phenomenon. Honey: My apartment building is so safe.
Garderoben-Wechsel, Party-Planning und Lebens-Organisation fallen in ihren Bereich. The way she let everyone, especially her family, walk all over her made me crazy. How does this character not get some of the very obvious things going on in her life? I just wanted to shake her. Well this was a breath of fresh air. Every year, top writers compete to win the Booker Prize.
Set a reading goal and stick with it. Predictable and not really very entertaining. Conley herself, of course, exemplified the fact that it all came down to discipline. If you want to get lost in a book and tune out the world, check it out. The love story itself bored me immensely. How do I personally make time? So, basically, this book was ok but I didn't enjoy it.
It contains more than 150 diet recipes, plenty of vegetarian options and a programme of easy-to- follow exercises. Can this please be made into a movie! I know, not always the best way to pick a book. I found three instances of quotation marks in the incorrect place or not there altogether It had tons of potential and I like its overall message. I would recommend it to all lovers of the romance and chick-lit genre, but not for others Although this book started a little slow, before long I was enchanted with Melissa, the main character. The Little Lady Agency is so cliche that it hurts. A 50% off coupon on a book that is already 50% off can save you….
The way she let everyone, especially her family, walk all over her made me crazy. This is a typical chick-lit book in that the main chica is the underdog, someone uncomfortable with men, etc. Even the most hamfisted of cooks will be able to come up with a plausible concoction from this cornucopia of ideas. Even in the book's resolution, she doesn't really stand up for herself. Like the film The Last Emperor, it tapped into the growing curiosity of the West about the East, particularly at the time of the Tiananmen Square uprising.
I set a personal goal of 50 pages a day. In fact, it might be one of the more serious books on the list. While lads rushed out to buy this book or hastened to put it on their Christmas list, women - for the most part - remained unconvinced. You can find a great review on Novelicious. She's extraordinarily bad at communicating. I love how it avoided a lot of the cliches so prevalent in chick-lit for example, the heavenly Nelson, our leading lady Melissa's flat-mate, is neither gay nor her former lover.
Even Jonathan, her main love interest, was less than impressive. The Little Lady Agency is the first in a three part series starring Melissa Romney-Jones, a girl who has been fired - once again - from her job and has no clue where to go from there. Anyway, young English woman starts her own business as a 'life organizer' for bachelors, adopts an alter ego to do so, ends up falling in love with one of her clients, etc. Honey can be all of the things that Melissa cannot. But chicklit has its place, and it's a cracking good read for those moments when all you want is mental popcorn.
I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a chick-lit with depth, a comedy with heart, or a romance for the modern era. Instead of working for other people, Melissa will go into business for herself: using her organisational skills to whip the lives of London's socially and romantically challenged men into shape. I give The Little Lady Agency 4 stars and highly recommend it for a light and fun read. Melissa is someone I would love to be friends with, grabbing a cocktail after a long week. Bridget herself would be happy if she could get her weight down to 8st 7lb, but her quest for self-improvement has been inversely proportionate to the unexpected success of the book.
I had a raging headache from reading too long by the time I finished, but I honestly didn't want to put it down till I reached the end. One minute he's suave and flirty, then next minute he's mean and abrupt. I could actually see it as a sitcom! As Honey, Melissa wears tighter clothing and can make the honest yet somewhat brutal remarks accommodating Melissa would never dream of uttering. I enjoyed the characters and their interesting relationships. Plus, this business idea she planned was brillant and needed! I loved the fact that Nelson didn't turn out to be the 'gay-best-friend-flatmate', but was in fact just a straight guy who happens to live with one of his female best friends. Actually, that was the favourite part of this novel for me, all that talk about the heroine's determination to build her own business and to put her life in order. Assuming a work-identity, Honey Melissa is free to be more vivacious, more outspoken and more confident.
