January 1, Sue Was OK. Story of 3 roommates in Toronto. About hteir relationships with each other and men. Each chapter written from perspective of different roommate. Pretty shallow. January 1, Brandy This was cute. All the characters were pretty good. Funny yet annoying in their own ways.
Quick read though In this process, they become friends and learn a lesson from their decisions. The best thing about this book is the humour. Jodine has the combination of being OCD and perfectionist.
If anything, she should flush the toiletbowl at least three times after using it. Besides that, she also works out a lot and practices a healthy eating habit not always though. I liked Jodine except for the flushing thing as she made a lot of sense and seemed more mature than the other two girls.
After breaking up with her ex Nick, she ends up eyeing Clint. This leads to lots of drama. I liked that Emma was quite driven and could come up with ways to get her way though this usually involves using her sex appeal. Her storyline involving Clint was good but it could have been better if it had been further fleshed out. Overall, the book had a decent but somewhat abrupt conclusion.
There are three roommates in a rent-controlled Toronto apartment, and each roommate has the opportunity to recount the events in her own voice.
The self-proclaimed "annoying omniscient narrator" tells the reader on the first page there is going to be a fire, but the story becomes more interesting as the characters learn to take responsibility for their mistakes The point of view of the narrator changes from chapter to chapter as the three girls in their early twenties learn to navigate growing up and living on their own for the first time.
Though all three of the characters are completely relatable, the ending of one of the protagonists seems a bit exaggerated. So the apartment is huge, and the rent is low. It sounds like a pretty good deal, right?
In reality, they find it kind of awkward for three strangers to live together, much less, have no privacy due to the fact there are three people occupying the apartment. I chose to read this book is also by Sarah Mlynowski.
However, when the smoke alarm starts to ring, one of the girls turn it off, finding the constant rings very annoying. Then a fire starts because the smoke alarm did not warn them. Then the apartment burns down.
Because they do not have any jobs at the moment, they decide to teach guys on how to deal with women. Eventually, they earn the money, and they are able to afford the insurance. The story generally did not draw me in, so I discontinued reading it. January 1, Alexis Three women have just become roommates Notes: I like Allie. At first, she reminded me much like two of my close friends, and it was a bit funny.
So anyway, I really regret buying this book. Perhaps after reading Shopaholic, I had gotten into a Becky-groove January 1, Emily Allison is getting new roommates and she is excited. Allie is the people pleaser, naive, kind of innocent one, who is she wants to be and what she wants to do with her life still. Jodien is in law school and is very driven in all that she does. Emma is the most social of the house, she works entry level at a fashion magazine, she is always looking for a guy, and always challenging her roommates and their patients with her ideas Allison is getting new roommates and she is excited.
Emma is the most social of the house, she works entry level at a fashion magazine, she is always looking for a guy, and always challenging her roommates and their patients with her ideas and activities. Putting their differences aside and working together brings them closer together as friends.
But will it keep them together when secrets are revealed. Started reading it at lunch, finished reading it by bedtime. The writing is decent, but this is the second book in a row after Gods Behaving Badly that starts off its first pages with almost no plot, just tons of exposition and set-up, and then spends the last pages trying to cram in everything.
There were parts that were funny, and I think that the idea was good, but the characters were just so ridiculous and annoying that it was hard to really enjoy them.
The slut, the cynic, and the naive one; all complete caricatures, none of them really change or grow. But some of their antics were pretty funny. However, about half-way through the book I, as the reader, really hated them!
I just got really annoyed with each character flaws. January 1, Melissa Moy This book is a fun read if you want to hear a story about something different. This novel follows three roommates that have just met each other and their apartment kitchen burns down. They must work together to raise the money for repair costs and their solution is pretty amusing. January 1, Hebbz This book was a bit hard to get into at first and a bit confusing.
The author chose to make each chapter from a different characters point of view. Unfortunately, the writing style was so similar between the characters that I had to frequently glance to the top of the page to see whose chapter it was. However, once I got into it I found that it was hard to put down. A very easy read and a VERY predictable storyline, but nevertheless, still very enjoyable. I lent my first copy; I missed it so much I bought another one.
I just moved to Toronto when that book came out. January 1, Trina Knittle This was an interesting book to read. It is definitely at moments a relatable book.
The more into the book I read the more interesting the story became. The characters in the book were all likable and very interesting to learn about. The book was a one day read. I was really happy to have enjoyed reading this book. I loved how each chapter changed points of views. It was interesting to see through the point of view of each roommate. A good read. Sarah has truly hooked me to reading mostly her books, anyway, but Lauren Myracle is a close second.
I have finally finished and may I say it was filled with all the adult drama you can get. This was ok but predictable. They spend months hosting parties, lectures, etc. It was a good gym read, but overall was left lukewarm and looking forward to the next book. January 1, Dee W. This book is cute but dumb, yet somehow totally endearing. The characters are extremems, but in a way that is how randomly assigned roomates tend to be.
So creepy perfect it kept me reading through the hokey bits. Just thinking about it makes me want to laugh. Again, brainless read. January 1, Karalyn You can definitely tell that is was written by a 20 something girl either retelling her college experience or stating what she wanted her college experience to be.
FISHBOWL SARAH MLYNOWSKI PDF
Shelves: chick-lit-fluffy This is quite possibly the worst book ever written. If the author set out to create the least likeable characters ever created, then she succeeded. Hated the switching between characters and the random narrator. Just awful.
