Book Review: Single Girl's To-Do List by Lindsey Kelk

I am a big fan of Lindsey Kelk. She has written only a few books so far, but I have enjoyed them immensely and so when I saw her newest one available for download on Amazon for £2.99, I bought it straight away. Lindsey Kelk’s other novels so far have all been from the ‘I Heart . . .’ series, which up to now include ‘I Heart New York’, ‘I Heart Vegas’, ‘I Heart Hollywood’ and ‘I Heart Paris’. This one however is not from the same series; Kelk has branched out a bit, although admittedly not too far. ‘Single Girl’s To-Do List’ is a fun and easy read that will no doubt cheer you up.

The story is centred around Rachel Summers, who is a twenty-something girl who loves to write a list. I totally related to Rachel straight away because I love to write a list, albeit not as obsessively as she does, but it is one of the many things that made me warm to her. The story begins with Rachel happily living with her long term boyfriend in a cosy flat in London, paid for by her enviable job as a make-up artist to the stars. As is usually the case with this kind of story, this lifestyle quickly unravels when her boyfriend announces one day that he no longer loves her and their lifestyle and he leaves. However, unlike the norm for this kind of story, Rachel doesn’t run weep relentlessly into her pillow or find her real self in a little obscure little village in the middle of nowhere. What actually happens is her two best friends write her a new list, and so comes ‘The Single Girl’s To-Do List’ . . .

Book Review: Jenny Lopez Has A Bad Week by Lindsey Kelk

I am the proud new owner of an Amazon Kindle and as the proud owner new owner of an Amazon Kindle, I have spent the last three days doing what all proud new owners of Amazon Kindles do – download anything and everything I can get my hands on. Browsing through the list I stumbled across a book from a familiar author: Lindsey Kelk, author of the ‘I Heart . . .’ series of books. So using the instantaneous magic of wi-fi I downloaded her latest offering ‘Jenny Lopez Has A Bad Week’ for the princely sum of £2.99.

The first thing you should know that this book is only available as an e-book for download to the Amazon Kindle. The second thing you should know is that it is a short story. I was a little disappointed to find out that it was a short story and even more annoyed that it isn’t advertised as such on Amazon. Considering that you can get a large number of full length books on Amazon for this price and, quite often, much less, it isn’t actually very good value for money if you ask me. The story is a good one, don’t get me wrong, but value wise it isn’t great. Just to give you a bench mark, I have since downloaded Lindsey Kelk’s most recent, full length, book for the same price.

I Have A Kindle!!!

I have to admit, I was one of those annoying people that preached about the sanctity of the traditional book and who couldn't ever imagine giving in to the devil that is the Kindle! But, after my very generous husband bought me one for my birthday, I have to now say that I am a total convert.

I have to also admit that I have somewhat neglected by love of reading of late (hence my last book review on here being like a million years ago). I know I know, how dare I say that and in public as well. But I am afraid it is true. That said, my love is back. After the initial buzz of downloading a million and one books (sort of ) off, I decided to start reading and I haven't put the thing down since! So be prepared to see a million and one (sort of) book reviews on here soon.

Folks I'm back and with a vengeance thanks to my new little toy!!!
