The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern

I really enjoyed this book.   To begin with I found it quite hard to warm to the main character, but after a while I was engrossed in the story and  was intrigued to see how the tale unfolded.

As my first of Cecelia's books, I can now understand why I've heard her stories have a magical quality.

All in all, I think this one is a lovely easy read with a good storyline and strong characters.  I've already bought another of hers to add to my 'to read' list!

White Wedding by Milly Johnson

I loved this book.  Each of the three main characters has their own wedding story to tell, each of which were funny, uplifting and touching.

I thought the characters were easy to relate to and I found myself wishing they were my friends.

This book has it all; romance, weddings, friendship, family, relationships and a fabulous act of revenge! You really couldn't wish for more from a good chick-lit read.

This is the latest book from Milly Johnson, and the first of hers that I've read.   It certainly won't be my last Milly Johnson, I can't wait to read Spring Fling, which I've heard lots of good things about!

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender

I loved the concept of this story line but was quite disappointed by the book itself.

It began well but then I found that there was no real story pulling you through the book.  The brother's situation I found very confusing to read, and had to re-read some parts to try and make sense of it, which I don't think is a good thing.

It has actually left me a little unsure why it was a Richard and Judy Book-club read, and I won't be passing it on to friends.

One Day by David Nicholls

I had watched the film before reading this book and having now read it, I do prefer the film.

The book was easy to read and interesting, and I found Emma to be a very likeable character.  Less so with Dexter, and if I hadn't have watched the film then I don't think I would have liked him at all.

I found that the ending was much more moving in the film, not being so powerful when read.

I'm glad I've read this one though as I know a lot of people who have and it's had a lot of good reviews.
