Atypical Chick Lit.
on 11 May 2012
I am not Nicola May's typical reader. I don't read chick lit all that often. If I'm away on holiday, I don't go to the 'holiday read' section for something entertaining, but go to one of my go to authors, and select one I've either read before, or one that I've started but not had the time to finish.
Lately though, I've been in a reading funk. My mind just couldn't absorb any more.
I happened across a tweet mentioning Star Fish. I fished out my Kindle, and ordered it as a 'I'll save it for later'. Two days later I had finished it.
I was in love with reading again.
That wasn't enough for me though, I wanted more Nicola May. So I stepped over to 'Working it Out'. I have to say that this was my favourite. Funny. Cringe worthy. Emotional.
I had originally passed on Better Together. I'm 27. Why do I want to read about a 40 year old woman. But, from my Nicola May experience, I figured that I would give it a bash.
Better Together was addictive. Again, I read this in a couple of days. I wanted to know more. I was hooked.
I don't want to give anything away, but I will say this: I want their heady passion. I want their intensity.
As someone who reads. A LOT. I wanted a little more on the subplot. And I don't know if it was the Kindle edition, but the narrative did seem to jump from one place to another without any sign posting, but again, that might have just been the format of the eBook.
I would recommend this as a powerful story of twists and turns, with an atypical, non Hollywood, plot line.
I can't wait for Nicola's next offering.
