I do realise that a lot of readers have a love-hate relationship with celebrities writing books, and some would go far to say that they have had ghost writers in place of them. However, I wasn't going to judge the book on this. If I enjoy a book and it was written by the named author and a ghost writer then okay, but it does suck if they a ...more

As soon as I spotted Abbey Clancy's debut, I knew it was my kind of read, as I love going behind the scenes of the crazy world of glitz and glamour, and I was not wrong. Remember My Name is a really fun and entertaining story about a girl from Liverpool who becomes the new musical sensation overnight and the consequences it has in her life and her family's.
I think that I enjoyed this novel so much because I instantly liked Jessica and ...more
I loved reading about the parties that Jess gets invited to, both as she is starting out, initially as a Disney princess, and that particular party where she was Elsa, will stick in my mind for a w ...more
The story centres on Jessy Malone, a young girl with a big dream and who unfortunately has never had a chance to have her talents seen…except by children as she performs at birthday parties dressed as Disney princesses. Hardly rock and roll. However, a chance encounter changes all that and Jessy’s lif ...more
It follows the story of Jessy Malone from Liverpool who is keen to make it as a star. The book opens up with a very funny scene with Jessy dressed up as Elsa trying hard to please her young audience, while slowly sinking in to the mud. This makes for a great opening and really caught my attention straightaway.
I really liked Jessy (or Jes ...more
I picked this book because of the blurb not because who had wrote it, if anything it made me think twice about reading it as I have read some books written by celebs and they were just awful in every way but I'm pleased to say this wasn't one of them!
The book is based around Jess who is a young all singing all dancing children's entertainer from Liverpool. It follows her road from rags to riche ...more

The writing was not fantastic, at one point I noticed a whole paragraph had been copied from one page to the next page.
I think I enjoyed the light relief of the book and the escapism from a world I have no desire to be part of but I wouldn't be in a rush to read it again, recommend it or think about it ...more
Jessica wants to be a star, she HAS to be a star, but is it what she really wants?
Jessica's character is one that we can all relate to, as if she has been a friend for years, so thanks Lovereading, x
