This book made me quit my book club.
The best thing about this book was that it makes you realize that anyone really CAN get published They should really file it under inspiration.I know, I know, I got what I deserved I just wanted a fun summer read and I loved her book Jemima J, but this was complete garbage The characters were shallow and unlikeable at one point the main character realizes she is literally prostituting herself out She is such a self satisfied whiner that I found myself actively rooting against her And just when y [...]
This was one Jane Green book from her chick lit days I never read I wondered why I never bought this and now I know why I must have read the sample and said no thank you That was a smart decision I am kind of horrified at how bad this book was The main character was awful, so were two of her love interests Her friend was having issues serious ones that she ignored Her mother made Mrs Bennett in Pride and Prejudice look like a saint I mean my God That s a terrible bar to be lower than So why did [...]
If you want poignancy, you won t get that in this book This is your average chick literature, with a protagonist whose only goal in mind is to end up with the guy of her dreams.Now, you may be thinking, why the fuck do I like this book For starters, I have already breached below my expectations for a book when it comes to chick literature I already expect a common plot, a protagonist with an I m ugly as fuck self esteem and some twisted, completely shallow hindrance why the protagonist won t be [...]
This book was utter garbage, how do books like this get published Firstly I didn t really warm to any of the characters and I couldn t stand the main character Libby I found her really shallow, unpleasant and materialistic She really proves how feminism hasn t changed anything if woman are still intent on marrying rich men I didn t care for any of the characters, especially Nick, the guy who Libby is in love with I didn t warm to him at all, he s just your classic commitment phobe who can t make [...]
I don t know what to expect when I first picked up this novel Jane Green was not one of the authors that I m familiar with so I thought it is good to try something new Sadly to say though, the result was rather frustrating.The book started off OK but once I passed the first hundred page, I literally start to yawn The predictability of the plots and some annoying characters really turned off my interest but still, I continued reading in hope that there might be something that could spark my inter [...]
The first quarter of the book was good, you get into the story and want to know what will happen then in the middle part I would say for half of the book I had a very strong sense of d j vu with another book I ve read this year, it was a carbon copy of the story, but checking the publication dates Mr Maybe was written first so I guess it was the other way around and the Sophie part of I wish I were you was the same story as this book, it only upset me because I really felt like reading the same [...]
Here s the usual dilemma in chick lit novels A woman struggles to choose between a wealthy man she has no connection with and a poor man she loves She chooses the poor man and he ends up already being or quickly becoming wealthy We re all happy The end But what if the woman chooses the poor man and, goodness gracious, he remains poor but lovable What happens then I know, but I m not telling.
I tried to get back to my Rom Com, chick lit, Sophie Kinsella style books but I guess I m way too deep into other genres This didn t cut it It was not a hugely disappointing read, just s forgettable, you kind of dread the time you ve invested in reading it.

Over the years I ve come to accept the fact that sometimes I m in the mood to read unapologetic fluff For me, that usually means a British rom com filled with women who wear Jigsaw suits to their jobs as television presenters, who eat takeaway curries in their garden flats and take mini cab s to meet their girlfriends at smart pubs at the weekend I ve always enjoyed these books with their pleasant and predictable plots where funny, slightly shallow, girls make messes of their love lives, fight w [...]
Check out the cover, wouldn t he at least be Mr Right Now So Libby is 27 and single and wanting to have a better half After meeting Nick as than an acquaintance the two get a hot fling going on He came to her flat on the first night and took a bath and they did it right there in her tub I almost needed a cold shower after this chapter Needless to say I was hooked from the beginning.Libby you rock I love how Jane Green writes the characters thoughts and then what the character says and how Libby [...]
The author is interesting but parts of this book were just painful to read Ever had the urge to haul off and smack a fictional character You might here Also, if you are considering reading this book, you should know that the author is British, and there is some terms that are not common in the US.
I ve come home It s difficult to explain, but there is something so familiar, so comfortable, so right about this moment, it suddenly feels like I am exactly where I should be, at exactly the right time, with exactly the right person I first read Mr Maybe during my major Brit Lit love fest of the early 2000s More than a decade laterd I m happy to say that I still love this book Mr Maybe is women s fic or chick lit, as we used to call it then than romance While yes, Libby does experience passion [...]
I read this book during my obsession with British authors period, along with coming off of a break up And let me tell you, it didn t disappoint This book is wildly funny and really tells the story of dating during your twenties Libby, who has no idea what is important in a relationship, is a loveable heroine She becomes strong and you can feel yourself falling in love with her The journey she takes is one that allows the reader to re examine their own dating history Pointing out that everyone ha [...]
I have wanted to read this book for like ever and I was so happy that I finally got it However, I just wish that I ended up liking it a lot Now don t get me wrong I liked it but the MC just rubbed me the wrong way for most of the book Okay, the entire book.Libby is pretty much a self centered bitch However, she is a well rounded self centered bitch because she s also shallow and hypocritical as fuck I just wish she wasn t who she was the entire book and then maybe I would ve liked her but uh ye [...]
Slow intro, had to fight not to put it away and start a new book It really picks up at the end and I found myself really thinking about what happened with Libby Nick after I finished the book
Second time I ve read the book not exactly intentional i grabbed it as a summer book when breezing through the library Realized a chapter or two in that I d read it before Woman wants to meet Mr Right Meets Mr Hot who makes clear he does not want long term relationship She thinks she won t get emotionally involved, but she does He breaks up with her She immediately meets Mr Moneybags one of London s most eligible bachelor s Her mother starts planning the wedding He proposes surprisingly soon She [...]
The cover claims national best seller I guess the nation referred to is England This book seemed to me much like a phonebook with a few vivid recreational sex scenes thrown in Well, actually there WAS a sorta plot, albeit a very shallow and predictable one The characters, whose thought processes would have been appropriate to 13 year olds, were supposedly twenty and thirty something singles Actually they were cardboard cutouts.
This book was just what I needed right now An average chick lit, not mind bending or anything of the sort, just a simple, predictable tale of the search for love I just wish the book had focused on the interesting relationship than the boring one The interesting relationship was secondary in this book, and it was frustrating to have to wait for it to re appear all the time.
Jane Green manages to find perfect balance between funny and relaxing chick lit and realistic, sometimes bittersweet prose This book is light without being shallow and sweet without being sugar coated Chick lit for romantic, but intelligent women.
I suprisingly found muyself identify with a lot of situations it hooked me at all.
Ya me hab a olvidado de lo FRESCA, DESENFADADA Y REALISTA salvo algunas salvedades particulares de la obra que suele ser la narraci n inglesa, tipo chick lit m s actual, y efectivamente, aqu nos encontramos con una buena muestra de ello.La novela nos narra la historia actual de Libby, una mujer de 30 a os, independiente, realizada con su trabajo a pesar de no ser el mejor pagado del mundo , sus amigos, pero que a n no ha encontrado a su hombre definitivo Conoci a su actual pareja, Nick, en una f [...]
Jane Green is one of those authors who writes a bunch of solid romances that are okay and sort of end up blending into one another instead of writing one or two really, really good books I just rated Bookends three stars because I honestly couldn t remember what it was about , but Mr Maybe did stick out to me a bit if only for its mild moments of hilarity and Mr Oh So Sexy Nick, aka Mr Maybe with no job, but being Mr Oh So Sexy nonetheless Libby annoyed me, because for some reason Mr Right means [...]
River Song voice Spoilers I hate chick lit I really do It s empty and boring and cliche and annoying But yet here I am, reading yet another romance novel I thought this one would be different I hoped this one would be different It wasn t.The main character is Libby, who like most main characters of chick lit novels has had trouble with men Then she meets cute guy Nick, who is so, so, good in bed and really funny and smart, but she hates his lifestyle and his friends and his profession So they br [...]

Kenapa aku memilih untuk membaca buku ini Karena aku suka dengan pengarangnya Jane Green Pertama jatuh cinta dengan bukunya Bayi Bayi Cinta yang cukup menyedot perhatianku dan menjadi the best three chicklit yang aku baca Ceritanya sangat simpel dan yang pasti masih dengan tokoh tokoh wanita mandiri yang sedang mencari cinta Tokoh utama yang sedang mencari Mr Right adalah Libby Matson Pertemuannya dengan Mr Maybe awalnya hanya main main saja di kala dirinya belum mendapatkan pacar yang tepat.Buk [...]
god i never ever reviewed for any book until now I created a login just for telling you all how much of a heartache this stupid book gave me.The lead character is so manupulative, selfish, self centeredgod.es just aweful She doesnt think twice before dumping Ed on the main basis that he doesnt know how to have a good sex, is clingy, spoils her with gifts which she doesnt feel a little bit bad before accepting them but feels so much when she gets dumped.When a prick like her who is a nobody in a [...]
I am shocked that I actually finished this book I am giving it two stars instead of one because somehow though I hated it, i still read every word I did not enjoy the characters or the plot I expected Libby to be mature at 27 I do not think she stopped whining until the last 10 pages The plot was also very predictable and took an extra 100 pages to get it accomplished After reading the summary I was hoping for a real battle over two men with equally good qualities but we got Nick who was wonder [...]
