Prepare to be disappointed….
Harriet Manners knows many things.
She knows that toilet roll was invented by the Chinese in 600 AD.
She knows that a comet’s tail always points away from the sun.
And she knows that the average healthy heart beats 70 times per minute. Even when it’s broken.
But she knows nothing about making new friends at Sixth Form. Or why even her old friends seem to be avoiding her. And she knows even less about being a glittering supermodel success. Which she now is – apparently.
Now, I won’t say that I hate this book, but I definitely didn’t like it. I was really disappointed by this book as I loved the first 3 books but this one was a huge let down. I felt like Holly Smale had run out of ideas and decided to make Harriet a ‘superstar’. I feel like she should have ended it with Picture Perfect. However, I did like the ending because it was back to the usual style of the other books. I’m not entirely sure why I disliked it so much, but I did and my friend agrees as well that this is a big disappointment. I did like all the new characters for instance Jasper and India and you got to know more about Liv and Ananya who are Alexa’s henchmen (or partners in crime). I give this a 4 out of 10 and sadly would not recommend it to you. I am planning on reading the 5th book, but if it is rubbish, please tell me. And for those of you in the UK…
Happy Bonfire Night
Blurb: Harriet Manners knows more facts than most.She knows that New York is the most populous city in the United States.She knows that its official motto is ‘Ever Upward’.She knows that one in thirty-eight people living in the US lives there.But she knows nothing whatsoever about modelling in the Big Apple and how her family will cope with life stateside. Or ‘becoming a brand’ as the models in New York say. And even more importantly, what to do when the big romantic gestures aren’t coming your way from your boyfriend…
This is the third book in the Geek Girl series, I have reviewed the first book, so if you would like to read the review for that one then here is the link http://larawhitfield.co.uk/?p=125
I have read the second book, but for some reason forgot to review it, so if you would like to see a review of that, please tell me. Now onto the review
I read this book in between swimming in the pool and drinking cocktails (non alcoholic obviously), yes, I was in Spain! While you lot were all sitting indoors, I was lounging in the sun and tanning, anyway .This book was my favourite out of the three, partly because it was so different to the rest of them. This one was sadder and you learnt a lot more about Nick. I was also surprised that Fleur made a reappearance in this one, for a good reason though. I was happy to see a lot of new characters in this book where as the others only had a few. I can’t wait to read the fourth book and already have a copy of it because my friend kindly lent it to me. I give this book 10 out of 10 stars and aim it at girls, but by all means, if you are a boy and fancy reading this then go ahead, no one will stop you. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the rest of your holidays (if you are in the UK).
Blurb: Harriet Manners knows a lot of things.
She knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a “jiffy” lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. What she isn’t quite so sure about is why nobody at school seems to like her very much. So when she’s spotted by a top model agent, Harriet grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her Best Friend’s dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of the impossibly handsome supermodel Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves.
As Harriet veers from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, she begins to realise that the world of fashion doesn’t seem to like her any more than the real world did.
And as her old life starts to fall apart, the question is: will Harriet be able to transform herself before she ruins everything?
Price: available on amazon for £3.85, or available in local libraries.
Everyone was saying amazing things about this book and so I thought I would give it a try and I am so glad that I did. It is now one of my favourite books and I give it 10 stars out of 10, this book is aimed hugely at teenage girls and was published a few years ago, I have read the second book in the series but not the last two yet, so no spoilers please!!!!!!!
