A Hopeless Romantic
Laura Foster is a hopeless romantic. Her friends know it, her parents know it - even Laura acknowledges she lives either with her head in the clouds or buried in a romance novel. It's proved harmless enough, even if...more
Also, here is a deep confession... I love British chick-lit books. Everything is so romantic when you add some UK men, language, and London.
then comes Nick...I set in a pace when he came into view in the next few chapters...though he only comes brief he gives an impact to Laura, I'm hoping ...more
I thought "A Hopeless Romantic" was brillinat and is the type of book that women (and men) can relate to. I have included a synopsis below for those who might be interested in reading it.
A HOPELESS ROMANTIC
Laura was a hopelessly hopeful romantic. Cupid’s arrow was always just around the corner and the look of love was forever pasted across her face. But there are only so many disastrous relationships a girl can take; the budding theatre director (gay), the romantic poet (psychopath ...more

There are a lot of things about this book that aren't my style, yet the author pulled it off for me. There's a lot of detail and background information which isn't my kind of thing. Seriously, the hero is introduced at the 30% mark. But it's told in a gentle rambling style that caught my attention. Secondly, the heroine has all the characteristics that I usually hate. But that's not what brought the rating down for me. It was the lack of romance - yes! - believe it or not in a book titl ...more
I would not say that the writing style is bad but maybe I am a bit biased, since I f ...more
I loved Laura, I did see some of myself in her. Some of her actions I could see myself doing exactly the same if I was in her situation. When she met Dan ...more
The writing style didn't make an impression either way, but I can't say I liked the main character or the plot. I think the writer was trying to recreate the type of girl from one of the early Kinsella novels (Confessions of a Shopaholic), quirky and fun if very flawed, but it didn't q ...more
It's basically about a girl who's a hopeless romantic (go figure) and also very unlucky in love. She always seems to end up with the wrong sorts of men, and h ...more
I could not feel sympathy or relate to the main character. Her situations were too many that makes them unrealistic. She comes across as whiny and ungrateful. The romantic interest is nothing but your typical handsome rich guy.
There are elements and situations that become an obstacle but are then dropped with no resolve. Some elements appear are resolved and then come bac ...more
It has a Sophie Kinsella feel to it, but it is much long ...more
I was born in London in 1974 and grew up on the mean streets of Chiswick, where I went to school. I was a completely undistinguished pupil in every way, except I absolutely loved reading and drama. My only achievements from the age of 5 to 18 were, a) winning a doodling competition at primary school (of a witch flying in the sky with balloons ...more
