Lottie Biggs is recovering from her mental disorder of a reasonably significant nature with the help of her counsellor, who rather helpfully looks like Johnny Depp. Things are looking up - her hair is an excellent shade of black, she has a Saturday job in a hairdresser and Gareth Stingecombe and his manly thighs are still the love of her life. When Gareth undoes his trouse ...more

I love a bit of humour now and then. and boy does this book give all that. Its packed with humour and very often I couldn't help but laugh out loud.

Even though there is no legitamate plot the story is indeed consuming. Lottie's character is full of light and joy giving the book a positive and wholly positive outake.

It didn't seem as though anything astonishing would happen but there were parts in which I was like O.M.G! Especially the part where Lottie and Gareth are alone in the cinema. Lottie'

Lottie Biggs is (Not) Desperate is, as Lottie would say, a “blatantly” amazing addition to the series. It’s just as funny – if not funnier – than its predecessor, and I absolutely loved it! Lottie, a teen with a mental disturbance of a significant nature, was absolutely hilarious in this one – and was just stumbling her way through life, one day at a time. I liked the addition of her guidance counsellor, Blake (who looked like Johnny Depp) in this one, because he was the one who helped Lottie ou ...more

This is the second book in the Lottie Biggs series, and is my favourite of the two. Gone are the serious issues I wasn't keen on in the first book, and in their place is a virginity dilemma, a new job and a rugby playing boyfriend with colossal thighs.

My favourite parts of these books, and Hayley Long's writing, is the humour and pop culture references. Every page provides a laugh, whether it be talking about Lottie's observations or her experiences with Gareth. She's a sarcastic narrator, and d

I seriously love this series and also Hayley Long for creating such a wonderful character as Lottie Biggs. Lottie Biggs Is (Not) Desperate is even more funny than the previous book. I absolutely howled with laughter at some points and I squirmed in embarassment for her as well. Because while the previous book, Lottie Biggs Is (Not) Mad primarily dealt with introducing Lottie and also of mental disturbance of a significant nature, this book focuses more on Lottie and her urges to have sex with Ga ...more

Un deuxième tome beaucoup plus drôle, mais qui n'oublie pas la fragilité de Lottie (elle va mieux, elle voit un psy qui ressemble à Johnny Depp et rédige un cahier d'émotions pour gérer le tourbillon de sa vie). Folle amoureuse de Gareth, elle devient aussi complètement obsédée par l'idée de passer à l'acte ! Elle le veut et ne pense qu'à ça ! (Ha ! ha ! la fameuse réplique de la saucisse... j'en rigole encore !). Sans oublier toutes les séances de coiffure où elle sert de cobaye à la maman de G ...more

I was so disappointed with this book because I loved the first book. This was a huge step down.
In this book Lottie is a whiny, little brat who is head over heels for some idiotic athlete. She is really annoying and a total baby.
When I picked this book up, I was hoping to read another book about insanity and depression but instead I get a book about a girl who doesn't know if she is ready to have sex yet.
Really its like all authors think teenagers care about is sex, movies about sex and books ab

This was a classic example of teen chick lit. Had not read anything that could draw parallels to Meg Cabot books eversince school had got over.
