It is official. I am going out with rock god and part-time meat mincer Justin Statham. Am certain that he is THE ONE and will prove it by having excellent relationship on every level. Oh no. What if he wants me to do it? Have only just got to grips with art of snogging so will need to get help fast.

I really do love this series of books and I don't know why I haven't read them sooner!! As soon as I start reading I just have to keep going and going!
I love all the characters especially Rachel, James and Jack and the things they all get up to is hilarious!
These books are very easy to read and even though a few details in them are a little bit dated, it really doesn't matter.
I really can't wait to read the next book in the series - and the next one after that!!!

Joanna Nadinin "Rakkaus odottaa, Rachel Riley" (Gummerus, 2011) on Saffron Waldenin pikkukaupungissa asuvan brittitytön elämästä kertovan kirjasarjan kolmas osa, jossa Rachel joutuu muun muassa pohdiskelemaan onko rokkari-Justin hänelle sittenkään se oikea poikaystävä, taistelemaan tiensä läpi yläkoulun päättökokeiden, perustamaan bändin, harkitsemaan tarkoin neitsyyden menettämistä ja tekemään lomamatkat niin Ranskan maaseudulle kuin Glastonburyn rockfestareillekin.

Luin suomeksi. Ihan kiva nuortenkirjasarja, sarjassa kukin kirja on vuodenmittainen päiväkirja jossa aluksi 13-vuotias Riley pähkäilee umpitavallista ja tapahtumaköyhää elämäänsä johon yrittää saada säpinää ja romantiikkaa. Hömppää nuorille.
