This review is from: Be Careful What You Wish For (Paperback)
When I went to my book stash looking for something easy to read I had a few to choose from but the sparkly bits on `Be Careful What You Wish For' caught my eye so out it came. I'd seen mixed reviews about this book but I'm glad it was the one I chose as it fitted my mood perfectly. After a series of heavy reads I needed something light and fluffy and `Be Careful What you Wish For' gave me just that. Its chick lit but it's amusing in a `Shopaholic' kinda way. I for one giggled along through it just like I did with the Shopaholic books and I've found nothing since Shopaholic to give me a really good giggle so I was surprised to find this one did.
The story is about Heather Hamilton who finds all her tiny wishes coming through after buying a piece of lucky heather from a gypsy. All of a sudden there's a spare seat on the tube, there's a parking space outside her apartment and the sexy neighbour she's always fancied asks her out for a drink. But Heather soon realizes that maybe it's not so great having all your wishes come true.
I really enjoyed this book and it made me think of a book I bought for my niece called `Felicity Wishes'. It's amusing, easy to read and has a feel-good factor to it that puts it above the rest. It's predictable in some ways but that doesn't detract from the story at all. I'll definitely be looking up Alexandra Potter to see what else she's got to offer. If they're half as good as this one I'll be stocking up!
