This was my first read from Janette Rallison.... I have been waiting months, I mean months, to read her work and let me tell you she does not disappoint!! I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but like her its funny. I was up at one o'clock just to finish it cause I needed to know what happened, and since the rest of my family was sleeping I had to surpress my laughter which let me tell you is not easy. I would be reading and read a line and burst out laughing which at that point I had to clamp my hands over my mouth. It was hard. It truly was "a-laugh-out-loud romatic comedy"!
The characters were well developed. The main character Giovanna (it's Italian btw), is easy to relate to and finds herself in the most awkward situations. Those instances were when I laughed... crazily. The other characters were good too, her boyfriend erm, *cough* ex- boyfriend is very swoon worthy to say the least. If girls could find a guy like that (though he has flaws), the world be awesome!! Down to the point, the characters were solid.
The plot was in my opinion very good, Throughout the book, there was a steady pace at which the plot progressed and you weren't just lagging behind or grasping at straws to try and find out what just happened. That was what I really enjoyed, Janette's writing style. It wasn't only clear and smooth, it was funny and clean.
The whole book surpassed my expectations and I am so happy I won it. Oh, did I not mention is was signed? Yah, it was!! My first signed book EVER and she even gave me two bookmarks... can you say thank you?? I can! THANK YOU! So, I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a good strong laugh and down-right enjoyable time.... I can't wait to read more by her!!
I bet you Cinderella didn't get along with Prince Charming's friends. Oh sure, the knights and barons probably put up with her on account that she was pretty and had such dainty feet and all, but you know every duchess and countess in the kingdom hated her guts. That's how women are when someone encroaches on their turf.
And that's why all the girls at Jesse's birthday party ignored me. While he mingled with the guests to make sure everyone had enough food, I sat next to a group of cheerleaders who talked around me like I was a piece of furniture.
I don't know why I expected any different. They'd acted this way since I started dating Jesse two months ago, giving me subtle and not so subtle messages that just because I was going out with a guy from the popular clique didn't mean I fit in with them.
