Review of Three Amazing Things About You - Jill Mansell by Pmshack99

Advantages: great characters, great story, one of JIll's best
Disadvantages: you may cry. I certainly did.

I've been a big Jill Mansell fan for years, since probably my early twenties. So... a while (I'm 35 now.) I've bought every one of her books so this one "Three Amazing Things About You" was not going to be an exception to this rule. Also, I follow Jill Ma ... Read review

Never read any of her books, obviously not a good one to start with. by ladyofflame
As this book was published six years ago in 2009 it might be an idea to update your first paragraph which reads "waiting with baited breath for her latest book". I've read all her books and thought she had a new one out I'd missed until I googled it! I agree that the author's previous books are much better than her more recent offerings though - she's most definitely gone off the boil. Her books are rather poorly written nowadays and so very repetitive - she's just churning them out without doing the hard work that went into her early books. PS Welcome to Ciao. by Bollinger28

Review of How to Fall in Love - Cecelia Ahern by jules.34

Advantages: A great read.
Disadvantages: Cannot think of any.

When I began reading this book, I thought it was going to be a hard read - the initial few pages are like walking through treacle and I wondered whether to carry on with it or not to be honest. The main character, Christine Rose, witnesses not just one m ... Read review

A reader's revenge: A E Marling's Gravity's Revenge
Review of Gravity's Revenge - A. E. Marling by cr01

Advantages: Some interesting ideas
Disadvantages: Doesn't really hang together for a whole book

I love the idea of self funded publishing. It is wonderful that a small number of (largely) public school gatekeepers who hitherto determined what the population might wish to read are swept aside. A number of good authors originally ignored by the publis ... Read review
