Waiting On Wednesday: Two fab August chick lit releases!

This week I'm all excited about two lovely chick lit novels - both released on 5th August!
I looove Alexandra Potter's books, but I have to admit that this cover is not really my favourite, too green & blue (two of my least favourite colours). Loving the sound of the book though!
I haven't read anything by Claudia Carroll yet, but her next book sounds great so I think I'll start with that one!

YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I DON'T WANT
by Alexandra Potter
[5 August 2010]
What if you found your soulmate ... and then discovered you couldn’t lose him?
When Lucy meets Nate aged 18, it is love at first sight. As far as she’s concerned, he’s The One. Caught up in the whirlwind of first love, they kiss under the Bridge of Sighs in Venice at sunset and – according to the legend – are tied together indefinitely.
But ten years later, they’ve almost forgotten about each other. That is, until fate starts to bring them together. Again. And again. And again. It doesn’t seem as wonderful as it had before, but if Nate’s not The One – then why on earth is it proving so hard to break up with him?
A funny and magical romantic comedy about what happens when every girl’s dream of finding her dream man comes very true indeed...

PERSONALLY, I BLAME
MY FAIRY GODMOTHER
by Claudia Carroll
[5 August 2010]
The fairytale ending was just the beginning!
Jessie Woods absolutely believes in fairytale endings. So would you if you had a recession-proof career as a daredevil TV host, a palatial pink mansion, and the dream boyfriend. But, quicker than you can say Cinderella, her life falls to pieces and suddenly her prince isn't quite so charming, her party-loving friends disappear and even her faithful friend Visa no longer loves her!
Utterly heartbroken and jobless, Jessie is forced back home, to live with her stepmum and two evil stepsisters. Is it time for her to give up on the dream - or will Jessie learn that happy endings can come in the strangest of places?
Avon's hot new acquisition presents a tale of princes who turn out to be frogs, Manolo Blahnik glass slippers and not-so-happily-ever-afters!
