Aprile (aprileb) Ahhh chick lit! What did you think of Gossip Girl and Confessions? I've read both. I read all of the GG books (minus the last one) and I am reading the It Girl soon :)

I am loving the GG books. They give me a totally different background then the show does(but yet it still follows pretty closely.) so its kinda cool. I am only on the 3rd but I have ordered some more so I can't wait to get through them. Do you watch the show? Confessions was great too although I hear they totally changed the movie which might make me really sad. Like its in NY not the UK and I think the luke brandon character is really more like her boss then in the book.


message 5: by Aprile (new)

Aprile (aprileb) I watch the show and I find it COMPLETELY different from the books, LOL. Granted in the last year I think they have tried to follow some more of the plots in the books. I love them both for completely different reasons.

I thought the previews for the Confessions movie seemed very different. Though it doesn't surprise me that they would put it in NY (people would get the brands and stuff better), but it sucks though.

message 10: by Dawn (new)

Dawn rizzi (dawnie278) 8. CROSS COUNTRY BY JAMES PATTERSON.

SUCH A DIFFERENT STORY LINE FOR HIM. IN THE BEGINING I THOUGHT OH NO I AM GOING TO HATE THIS. AS NORMAL THOUGH PATTERSON DOES NOT FAIL. GREAT BOOK I AM SAD I FINISHED NOW I HAVE TO WAIT FOR HIM TO WRITE A NEW ONE. I GUESS IT WILL GIVE ME TIME TO CATCH UP WITH MY OTHER FAVS.

Diana Gligor (DianaGligor) | 12 comments PS I Love You was a great book to read. I really enjoyed it. Much more than the movie. The only thing better in the film that in the book was Gerard Butler. :)

YES I COULD NOT AGREE MORE. NOT SURE I LOVED HILLARY SWANK AS HOLLY EITHER. I WAS PICTURING WHILE READING SOMEONE A LITTLE MORE DUMPY NO?

YES I COULD NOT AGR..."


I don't know why I generally do not like Hillary Swank, I still can't get over her image as a boyish lesbian, and Holly, I agree, should haev been someone who felt more like a ...woman. :) And the entire visit in Ireland was very badly done in my opinion...But than again, Gerard makes up for the lost time watching the movie. :) He is much better than my imagination :)))

I haven't managed to read any other of her books...Do you have any recomandations for some of her books?



message 17: by Jan (new)

Jan | 119 comments Hi Dawn and Diana -- I've read all but the latest of Cecilia's books and I particularly liked

If You Could See Me Now

It's quirky because there is an "imaginary friend woven in...but trust me, there will be times that you are really convinced Ivan is real...and I think it would have made a much better movie that PS because it had a cute kid in it, too....

Just my two cents!
