Last week I posted a YA duo so this week I've decided to combine two chick lit reads that I can't wait to read. These two don't really have a similar theme, but what they have in common (apart from the genre) is that they both sound great and look lovely - what's not to love? :) So here are my this week's picks ...
[24 June 2010]
It’s official. Hannah has left her friends and family in the US behind and is following her dream. To live in London. Unfortunately she's completely unprepared for what's in store.
She’s going to find:
1. Her dream guy. A prince or Hugh Grant would be nice. Or does she have to settle for her half-naked Australian housemate or an "English gentleman" with terrible hygiene habits?
2. Her dream job. Something fantastic in fashion. So how has she ended up being the mini-me for an evil party planner who doesn’t even trust her to arrange the paperclips?
3. Her dream friends. But everyone in London seems to have known each other for years and Hannah’s having trouble getting to know nice people. Who’s she going to have fun with? Dream life? Should Hannah just dream on?
Maybe it would have been simpler and cheaper to just get a new haircut. Was she mad to move 3,000 miles away from everyone she knows? Will she ever find love and her perfect life in England?

Tia's top beauty tip: apply heavy make-up carefully to prevent any cracks from showing...Ooh, don't they sound fantastic! I can't wait to get my hands on these perfect summer reads! :)
Life is fabulous for Tia Carpenter. She has it all, money, looks, a great job as the beauty expert at stylish Platinum magazine and, at last, the attention of her unrequited high school love, Josh Banks.
But Tia has a secret – back at school she was Barbara Baker, overweight, crooked teeth, frizzy hair and no fashion sense. Cosmetic dentistry, losing seven stones in weight and a complete makeover later, Tia has successfully erased her past life as Big Barb, tub of lard, until the day Juliet Gold, the bane of her teenage existence, arrives to work at the magazine.
Juliet always got everything she ever wanted, and now she wants both Tia’s job and Josh. Tia will have to use every makeover trick she’s ever learned to stop Juliet from uncovering her past and stealing her man.
Lastly, I believe it's high time I announced of my BEFORE I FALL contest, which ended last week. Sorry for taking so long, but these entries take quite a while to count and check (note to self: look into Google Docs, apparently that's a good solution to this problem, heh). Anyway, as it turns out, 39 people entered this contest and altogether there were 214 entries, yay! Thanks SO much for everyone who entered! I'd love to give a copy of this fantastic book to each one of you fabulous people, but sadly there can be only one winner - random.org picked number 118, which belongs to ... REBECCA @ Lost in Books! Congrats to the winner of a hardcover copy & some signed swag, I'll be emailing you shortly! As for others, please don't despair and stay tuned for some other great giveaways in the near future! :)
