My determination to achieve my goal of reading 80 books this year is forcing me to admit to my guilty pleasure: I read lots of romances (especially now that Barnes & Noble is handing them out for free. Curse you, B&N!!!). Actually, I don't so much "read" them. I plow through them. Skim them. Blast through to the end. Look, it's not like they're Crime and Punishment, (which, incidentally, I just finished). I don't have to spend hours trying to figure out if the rain is symbolic or simply [...]
Yikes - was I drinking or otherwise impaired when I wrote this review? Sorry for the typos. I believe they've all been fixedI got a Kindle for Christmas. :-)I've read the criticism about how a Kindle is sacrilege because you don't read a "real book" - no real book smell, no cover art, no page turning, etc. - but I gotta say that I love it. Turning pages is great, I guess. But in the end, I really just like to read. Kindle allows me to do that just as easy, if not easier, than a real book. (I lis [...]
I love the Brits’ dry turn of phrase, tongue-in-cheek humour and ability to be self-deprecating. Jill Mansell has straddled all the above ingredients in her refreshing collection of chick-lit. Her books are fun reads; devoid of random smut and brimming with memorable characters, quick-silver dialogue and believable story-lines.Millie’s Fling is one such fine example. The best way to review this l’il gem would be to give a little heads-up on some of the characters. So here goes:------------ [...]
Laikam būšu atradusi savu iecienītāko lubeņu rakstnieci, kas zina, kas ir humora izjūta un kā to lietot. Ironija te dzirkstī no katras lapas un atšķaida saldo saldumu, ka visi beigās ir laimīgi un dabonās (kā tam lubenēs arī ir jānotiek). Tā ir kliedzoša netaisnība, ka šīs autores grāmatām ir tik dramatiski atbaidoši vāki, un es te nerunāju tikai par Kontinenta šedevriem.Visumā bija jautri, lasīšu arī pārējās (cerams, ne sliktākas) viņas grāmatas. Šī bija [...]
Mais uma vez me diverti imenso ao ler este novo livro de Jill Mansell. Desta feita, a protogonista, novamente uma mulher, é uma rapariga muito divertida e, apesar de todos os desgostos de amor, está de bem com a vida e consegue, a meu ver muito bem, ultrapassar as adversidades que se lhe colocam no caminho. Como que se estivessemos a ler a obra final de Orla Hart, uma famosa autora de bestsellers criadas por Jill Mansell, depressa entramos na história de Millie, da própria Orla, e das person [...]
I downloaded Millie's Fling as a free e-book for the kindle. I was in the mood for something that was light and funny and from the book description it sounded like this story would fit the bill. I’ve never read Brit Lit before (except Harry Potter) and I think I got a pretty good glimpse of British mannerisms and humor in this novel.This book didn't really work for me--I found it very long and too silly. I think if it had been shorter (and a few less plot lines) I would have liked it more. I f [...]
'Romance Atribulado' podia ser o título de qualquer um dos livros de Jill Mansell; a autora até pode dar às suas personagens o tão desejado final feliz mas o caminho até lá é sempre tortuoso, pesaroso e, muitas vezes, bastante embaraçoso!O tom irónico da escrita, aliado ao modo quase maquiavélico com que Mansell brinca com as suas personagens dá-nos a sensação de que tudo (!) pode acontecer a estes desgraçados, mantendo-nos agarrados à história, divertidos com cada desenvolviment [...]
You know when you read a book and you don't want it to end? Well this was that book. I enjoyed it so much. Yes it was an easy read and not a classic but still I really liked it. I laughed out loud several times. I even thought about it when I wasn't able to read it. So glad I have discovered this author.
É uma vida totalmente atribulada, começa pela Orla Hart que decide fazer uma mudança nos seus livros e dar a oportunidade à sua melhor amiga de ser a heroína nesse mesmo livro que está a escrever. Coitada a Millie vai sofrer quando souber. O que a Orla não sabeOpinião completa em:aviciadadoslivros/
the first half, and the overall basis of the story were entertaining, but the second half wrapped up so fast. i needed more relationship, less cheezy forced set up situations.
Jill Mansell é, sem dúvida, uma das minhas autoras preferidas. Simplesmente adoro os seus livros. Têm tudo o que se pode pedir para uns momentos de leitura muito bem passados: uma grande dose de humor, romance, boas personagens e uma boa intriga. Além do mais, são daqueles livros que sabem bem em qualquer altura do ano. São leves, mas de uma carga humorística fenomenal e histórias hilariantes que tão bem se assemalham à realidade em que vivemos.A verdade é que sempre que leio algo de [...]
Jill Mansell’s characters are the British best friends I never had! They are real, quirky and a whole lot of fun! Millie’s Fling starts off with Millie in a car with her boyfriend who is trying to ask her to move in with him, and all she can focus on is the person at the edge of the cliff who looks like she is contemplating throwing herself over the edge. Her boyfriend is asking her to move in with him, and all she thinks about is how little she cares for him as she throws open the car door [...]
Jill Mansell has surpassed herself once again in Millie's Fling. Chicklit and women's fiction readers will enjoy this spontaneous journey in Cornwall, England."Having ignored his plea, Millie promptly cannoned into the lamp-post behind her. Clutching her left shoulder and trying to pretend it hardly hurt at all--ow, ouch--she wondered why her life had to so closely resemble Mr. Bean's. What she wouldn't give to be sleek and chic and in control at all times." (Page 108-9 of ARC)Millie is a down-t [...]
While sitting in her boyfriend's car listening to him try and convince her to move in with him, Millie spy's famous romance writer Orla Hart about to commit suicide. Jumping out of the car, and subsequently ending her relationship, Millie runs to Orla's side and convinces her that just because Orla's husband has been found out ot be cheating on her, that killing herself isn't the way to get even. What ensues is a non-stop roller coaster ride full of rollicking fun and laughs with Millie blunderi [...]
Millie and Orla's meeting will change both of their lives. Orla because Millie just saved her life, and Millie because Orla is determined to make Millie the heroine in her next big romance novel. Unfortunately for Orla's story, Millie doesn't have a romance budding at the moment. Orla doesn't despair though. She sets right to work writing down all of the events that happen in Millie's life and arranging for Millie to "meet" some guys. Orla's taste in men is kind of bad, and Millie's has to navig [...]
Like I've told so many people lately, I have a giant author crush on Jill Mansell. Millie's Fling is the fifth book of hers I've read and I loved it as much as the others - more. It was my favorite.I love the way her books have one main character and her storyline is central to the plot, but each supporting character has a separate but related story. It must be so difficult to keep everything straight and I picture Mansell surrounded by post-it notes and graphs in her writing area! In this book, [...]
This was quite a big book, but it took me only a couple of days to finish. I was starting to think Mansell was losing her touch, but boy, was I wrong.Millie is one of the most endearing characters I've read about to date. She is nice, witty, funny, charming and very spontaneous. Hugh is also a great character, and made for a great hero - a dash of romance, with a sprinkle of tormented past, guilt, sex, and a bunch of coincidences and you get yourself the full package.Obviously, like her other bo [...]
Millie Brady saves best-selling romance novelist Orla Hart from jumping to her death one afternoon. Orla is so grateful that she has decided to make Millie the heroine in her next book. She is determined that Millie will find that special someone over the summer and she'll do whatever she can to make it happen. She'll interview and hire just the perfect hunky gardener, she'll have a party in Millie's honor and invite celebrities, and she'll set her up with who she thinks Millie may find acceptab [...]
I liked this book a whole lot more than it probably deserved. The writing is a bit rocky, though not egregiously so, and there's not a lot of depth to the characters, really. Still, I ended up liking it quite a bit, mostly because Millie was charming and fun to tag along with.The most noticeable problem with the writing is that there are even more perspective shifts than is typical, even for romance novels. You end up riding along with most of the side characters at one point or another, even so [...]
Real Rating: 3.5Ejá li. Com este livro, tenho finalmente as leituras em dia no que toca a esta autora. Sobre o livro Romance Atribulado, não é dos meus livros favoritos. No entanto, a autora conseguiu mais uma vez criar uma história bem-humorada, divertida e leve que se lê num instante. A escrita dela é tão fluída e descomplicada, que as páginas passam a correr e nem damos por elas passar. A mim acontece-me sempre isto nos livros dela. Gostei das personagens mais uma vez. O casal princi [...]
Sobre os romances de Jill Mansell a verdade é que já não há nada de muito diferente que eu possa dizer.Eles possuem um humor inconfundivel e contangiante que é na minha opinião umas das marcas da autora. Os romances têm também na sua grande maioria, muitas pripécias e reviravoltas inesperadas e revigorantes, nunca, a meio de um livro desta autora podemos ter a certeza de qual será o final, pois o mais certo é que este não seja exactamente como esperamos. Ainda outra caracteristica de [...]
This is exactly what I was looking for- a light, easy read that kept me interested and entertained.When Millie impulsively decides to save Orla's life, their lives become tangled in strange ways. Orla, the blockbuster author, needs something different to write about. Millie, recently unemployed and single, looks to be just the thing. With a whole cast of crazy, (mostly) loveable secondary characters, Millie doesn't necessarily shine brightly. However, Millie is average enough, and finds herself [...]
5 stars for this book! I absolutely loved it!When Millie Brady saves Orla Hart's life, she doesn't realise how drastically it will change her own. Her current boyfriend dumps her, however, she is unbothered and decides to spend a man-free summer. Orla, a bestselling novelist, has other ideas though, and begins to matchmake on Millie's behalf.We are introduced to so many fabulous and believable characters throughout the story, who you really end up caring about. There are also some real laugh out [...]
4.5 stars// OH OH OH how I loved this book! It has been in my TBR list for at least a year and I don't know why I haven't picked it up sooner! This story sucks you up and you will not want to put it down until you have no other choice to. I didn't immediately get into it but after let's say 70-80 pages I started to really like it.I loved all the characters, one by one, except Giles who was an ass but even him I didn't resent. It was a really really REALLY good easy, light hearted read. Written s [...]
Jill Mansell is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I love her writing style of including several small story lines surrounding the main one. The characters are all quirky and definitely keep the reader guessing. Millie was such a fun main character I almost wish this were first in a series of Millie novels. Definitely recommend this author and this book to anyone who enjoys a fun read that also has some depth.
3.6 starsThe book was a bit too long, but it did make me a laugh quite a few times.Loved Lucas! And Con. Aw hell, and Christie Carson too. Cute characters, I enjoyed the book, though it did get a bit monotonous somewhere around the middle. Overall, nicely done!
Excellent Summer Read I really loved it. 4.5 *'s!! I do recommend this book to all who love a good romance/chick lit with only a little sexual content!! Kimberly May if you're reading this it would be perfect for your MIL!! :~D!!
I love Brit humour! Hugh is hilarious and I really enjoyed all his conversations with Millie. Laughing out loud while reading a book doesn't happen to me too often so I'm grateful for this one intelligent character. However, rest of the book proved rather boring.
Mansell is a great chicklit author, you must check out all of her books. A word of warning, she tells her stories from multiple POVs.
Outrageously fun read that was an Kindle freebie, author Jill Mansell has a new fan with this one!
