Emily Benet's diary sparkles as brightly as the chandeliers in her shop. She should be made to move her shop around to every High Street in the country so we could all enjoy a retail treat with real customer service. Failing that, read the book. Lights, love, laughter, and a touch of writer's anguish are all dealt with in her breezy style. When is the sequel coming out? I loved it.
I don't like Shop Girl Diaries....
I LOVE IT!
Heartwarming, optimistic, romantic, very very funny.
I am half way through and already worrying about what on earth I will do when I don't know what is going on in Ms Benet's life on a daily basis.
I might have to go and buy a light a day, heaven forbid!
Ps. I now also want to buy a chandelier for my bathroom. And go Latin dancing. And work in a light shop. And be Spanglish...and so much more.
If you don't buy this book you are a fool. Do it, do it NOW!
"The Shop Girl Diaries" chronicles a year in Emily's life when she's working in her mother's chandelier shop in Bermondsey, blogging away, trying to write her first novel and get it published, and meeting and falling for "the date".
A number of larger than life characters come into the shop, some of them come to buy, but many more just come in and out to pass the time.
It's a fun read, it makes you smile and the diary format works well. Read it!
A great gift for people who enjoy a funny read which everyone can relate to!
Emily shows her obsession with checking social media sites to see how many followers she's got. Probably every writer can identify with that. In between doing this she works in the family shop. The scenes she tells of here are priceless. The interaction between Emily and the customers had me literally crying with laughter. I used to work in a shop too and I felt her pain.
I also love the format of this book. It's easy to pick up and put down when you only have a few minutes to spare.
Emily is a very funny lady and I wish her all the best in her writing career. A well deserved five stars, Emily!

A really easy read with lots of humorous touches. I felt like I really got to know the author. Loved it!Published on 21 Nov. 2014 by Fiona
Rated 1 as I find this totally boring, all about a girl in a shop.
To be honest I rather read Harry Potter and I cannot stand that.
Time for delete time.
I nearly missed my plane reading this book! Such a delightful and good humoured look at humanity in a London Street.Published on 18 Aug. 2011 by Jillicus
