The fabulous new, soon-to-be-published romantic comedy from the Amazon best-selling author of It Would Be Wrong to Steal My Sister's Boyfriend (Wouldn't It?)

Thirteen years ago, Laura thought her life was over. Now, she’s nailed being a grown-up. Married to the gorgeous Jonathan, she has two wonderful (if high-maintenance) children and a free pass into the school-gate elite. So what if once in a blue moon she still daydreams about Felix, the man who broke her heart? After all, living well is the best revenge.

But then an unexpected encounter turns everything upside down. How can Laura risk throwing away everything she has for a dream of the past? She can’t be falling in love with Felix all over again... can she?

Here is another heart-warming romantic comedy from best-selling author Sophie Ranald. If you adore Lucy Diamond, Tracy Bloom and Sophie Kinsella, prepare to be swept off your feet by You Can’t Fall in Love With Your Ex... because you can!

This book was just not my cup of tea, I could not enjoy reading it. I was kinda dragging myself from one page to another and falling asleep in between. Laura's life was perfect, still she yearns to be loved by her Ex and sneaks out from her responsibilities and loving family to be with EX. I am to understand that I do not enjoy extramarital affair stories. Besides that, this book gives you a detailed insight to an artist's life; their struggle to be fit, competitions inside the classroom, heartless actions to win stardom etc. Sophie Ranald has an impressive writing style; detailed descriptions will help us paint a beautiful picture inside your head and lets you enjoy it to the full. It also has a very good ending, which was predictable, but a pleasing one. Sadly, the story was not that intriguing and it did not grab a teeny tiny bit of my attention. 

My Rating: 3/5 (It was Okay!) 

Harry Potter #2
Author: J.K. Rowling
Genre: Fiction, Fantasy
Page Length: 251 Pages
Publication Date: May 28th, 1999
Publishers: Bloomsbury Publishers

Harry Potter is a wizard. He is in his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Little does he know that this year will be just as eventful as the last…

I could not put it down! Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is my favorite Harry Potter movie, so I was looking forward to reading it. I knew the book could offer me more excitement than the movie. I was hooked to it from the start to finish, Rowling's vivid descriptions and the Harry Potter movies helped me to build a picturesque Hogwarts inside my mind and to be a part of their adventures, I really enjoyed it. Unique story, isn't it? I do not think anyone else can ever write such an amazing book. A real page turner this book is. I knew the end, still I was thumbing through the pages hastily to devour more and more of it. I was literally lost in it and was rooting for the Famous Harry Potter and was really glad when he defeated the Tom Marvolo Riddle aka The Lord Voldemort. It's a gripping fantasy book. Highly Recommended!

My Rating: 5/5 (Amazing!)
