“My dream novel”

published 20/09/2008

A great light read that will have you hooked

Its a disappointment when you get to the end

When it comes to buying a new booking I tend to rely on recommendations from friends or Dooyoo, however whilst on honeymoon in the Maldives I found myself without anything to read so I made my way across to the library on the island to swop a book I had read and no longer wanted. I picked up a...

“~ * Living The Dream * ~”

published 07/09/2014

plot, unique, characters

took me a while to get into

One of my favourite things to do is browse charity shops for books. I am a huge chick lit fan and so was pleased when I came across this chick-lit book for just £1 in a charity shop recently. The book in question is called ’31 Dream Street’ and was written by British Author Lisa Jewell. The book...

“~* Dream Read! *~”

Funny, Well written

31 Dream Street is a chick-lit book by Lisa Jewell. The book was released in the United Kingdom in 2008 and so is fairly recent. The book is four hundred and eighty pages long. You can buy a copy of this book from Amazon for a price of £4.39 which I think is good value for money. Plot: Even...

As an avid reader, I know I have been impressed by a book which I can remember the title and author of a week later! And I loved this book! It didn't take long for me to feel as though I lived on Dream Street, and the characters came to life so quickly - no checking back in pages before to remind myself of who was who! This is the first Lisa Jewell book I have read - it was actually the cover that caught my eye! (Note to self: never say 'never judge a book by its cover'!). And it certainly won't be my last.

Not her best novel. Becoming easier to predict out...

31 Dream Street is the story of several individuals brought together after applying to a newspaper advertisement for 'creative people' to live in a house in London. A story which is funny in parts, sad in others and always thought provoking, but not heavy in any way. As is usual with a Lisa...

Easy to Read

a lot of characters, can lose track of who's who

This was a very easy to read chick-lit novel, but still substantial and long enough to get stuck into. The plot was different to a lot of chick lit, one of the two main characters being a man. Although there was a central female character, who did have the usual concerns of an un-married thirty...

“Lovely and enjoyable”

published 30/07/2008

Interesting characters

One character I detested

I bought this book as part of an offer (3 for 2) as I am trying to stay away from typical modern women's fiction (in a failing attempt to read more intellectual novels...). Anyway, I am so pleased I bought because I couldn't put it down. I usually save reading books for bed time or when my...
