I Heart Hollywood by Lindsey Kelk


They say that couples who fall for each other do so because they have a strong connection, well this is how it was when I started reading I Heart New York last summer - read the blog post here. The book is about Angela Clark, a 20 something Brit chick who ups sticks to New York when she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her. She lands a cool gig as a blogger for a glossy mag, meets the man of her dreams and lives blissfully in Brooklyn with her bestie Jenny. I bet you thought that was where the story ended right? Well wrong because hot on the heels of I Heart New York is I Heart Hollywood where we see Angela heading to Hollywood to interview James Jacob, a very hot and successful British actor. Set against a landscape of designer boutiques, chic bars, exclusive clubs and stunning women; Angela finds celebrity life in Tinsel Town a tad pretentious. When she eventually gets to interview James Jacob she is surprised at how down to earth he is. The two strike up a swift friendship with James taking Angela under his wing and showing her different sides to LA. However the media soon get a whiff of James and Angela's friendship and she finds herself in the public eye for all the wrong reasons. This is bad news because sitting back home in New York patiently waiting for her to return is her gorgeous boyfriend, Alex. Will she be able to convince him that the press have the wrong end of the stick?  If I Heart New York is anything to go by then this book is bound to be a real corker. Lindsey Kelk has such a wonderful and engaging writing style that you cannot help but fall in love with her books. So if you like a book with a lot of fun and glamour then this is absolutely for you. Look out for I Heart Paris which will be released in July.

Oh wow! I know Lindsey Kelk - she writes a fantastic beauty blog that i follow...

ok thats a tough one as I love so many books!! but if i had to pick one right now then it would be "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho - it's a fable about pursuing your dreams with truth and passion, the experiences you will gain as well as the challenges you will face along the way to get there and ultimately the power of perseverance. It encouraged me to have the faith to go towards what i believe in.

sorry about the mini essay btw. x

Going by what you have written about the both books I get a feeling that I am going to enjoy the new book sooooo I want! I want!! I want!!!
One of my best book ever is 'She's come Undone' by Wally lamb. I have bought, read and given out 3 copies (meaning I have read it 3 times)looking out to buy the 4th copy.

I always use to cringe whenever I read or heard the term "Chick Lit" but, I'm fast discovering these are my favourite type of literary to read!

That being said my favourite book is called My Best Friend's Girl by Dorothy Koomson! I typically don’t read books more than once, but this I have as I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! - It deals with betrayal, death, and love. – I could easily see this as a TV series or made for TV movie.

One of my fave books is "In Search of Satisfaction" by J California Cooper.

This book opens your eyes to life and gives small instances when God sends help and when the devik tries to intervene. It also follow descendants of slaves and as the different generations progress in life. I have read this book a few times. Well worth the read
