It’s Sunday! And you know what that means, it is time for another book review! yay! Today it is all about I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk. So let’s do this.
I don’t tend to read a lot of adult fiction and I definitely don’t tend to read a lot of ‘women’s’ fiction. There are a few books from this genre that I have picked up over the years, but not many. But one that has been recommend to me time and time again (I used to work in a bookshop and was forever being told to pick this book up) is I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk. So, when I spotted it on clearance for £2, I decided to give it a go. And you know what, I’m glad I did!
I will openly admit that this book is kind of shallow and very predictable. There are no ground-breaking storylines and it isn’t going to change the world anytime soon, but, it is enjoyable. I got through this book in just a couple of days. It is just good fun. I found myself smiling so many times while reading this book. I just couldn’t help it. it was just sweet and funny. It is such a good light, happy read. I really enjoyed reading it.
I don’t know why I enjoyed this book so much as it the complete opposite to what I normally read, but I did really like it. I think some of it may be because I wasn’t expecting anything from it. I knew it was going to be light and easy and not have any depth to it. and I wasn’t wrong. It is light and easy and it is a very quick read. but I was a little taken aback by some of the deeper messages in it. There are a lot of themes of acceptance and self-love in this book. admittedly some of it is a bit shallow, but it is there. There is a lot about taking chances and accepting yourself. I do wish there was a little less focus on appearance and makeovers, but I was surprised and pleased to see these deeper messages in this book.
All in all, I enjoyed it. I really enjoyed it. I will be picking up other books in this series. It is just a really good detox book. it was the prefect book to take a break from fantasy with.
