Book #5 - The Next Big Thing

After reading the very intense A Million Little Pieces, I had to add something in the mix that was light. I was at Target yesterday (my first trip to Mecca since coming home on New Year's Day - I almost hugged the big Target sign) and saw this book. I read the back and laughed out loud because it was hilarious.

Basically, this young girl, Kat, is conducting an online love affair with a Britsh man who thinks she is a size 4 when really she is a size 18. She decides, since he is beginning to pressure her into meeting, that her last chance to "start her life" was to go on a reality tv show called "From Fat to Fabulous." There are, of course, a series of twists and turns and things go horribly awry but it was a good read. Very entertaining and I stayed up entirely too late last night reading it. I finished it in just over a day so that should tell you that it went quickly. I highly recommend if you are looking for something that does not take huge brain power but will keep you interested.

If you like that book I also recommend Jemima J by Jane Green. SO good. I love most of Green's books, in fact.

I have never heard of this Jane Green... Investigation is needed.

That sounds like a fun book! I'll have to check it out, I love easy reads like that.

I suppose I need some light reading at the moment, too. I have three books under way and none of them give me any laughs.

Thanks for the recommendation. I ordered it from the library and just got an email that it's in, so I'm picking it up tomorrow. Can't wait!
