63 Parks, Adele LARGER THAN LIFE (OM)
Penguin Books Ltd 2002 0141008660 / 9780141008660 Paperback Very Good 
Georgie is desperately in love with Hugh, and has been for years. She's alw ays tried to make him happy, and be the person he wants. Until she falls pr egnant and her life changes completely A very light read, I enjoyed the character's transition from bright young t hing to mother-to-be - fat, frumpy and thinking about reality. All the way through you could see how she wasn't being true to herself - taking a drast ic event like pregnancy to make her finally put herself (and child) first. Readers who have been pregnant would probably appreciate the descriptions of the turmoil of pregnancy. I would describe this book as "Chick Lit goes to Mothercare "

PREP, Sittenfeld, Curtis

A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: This finely wrought debut novel tells a Cinderella story of sorts about an unhappy thirtysomething woman who manages to turn her disastrous life around. Louise Canova hails from Pittsburgh but is currently living in London with her actor husband. Louise has severe self-esteem problems, a budding eating disorder, a complete lack of interest in any activity, and a growing sense that something isn't right with her marriage. One day, while browsing in a used bookstore, she comes across a style manual entitled Elegance, penned by a doyenne of Parisian style and grace. Captivated by the advice in the book, Louise begins to dress better (no more Birkenstocks and shapeless dresses), work out regularly, and sleep less, and she seeks more attention and respect from her husband. Tessaro is a skillful writer, and in her capable hands this subject receives the respect it deserves, with dark undertones from Louise's past rearing up unexpectedly throughout the story. Readers will enjoy following this harrowing journey of self-discovery, renewal, and reinvention to its uplifting conclusion.

Brooke, a nutritionist with aspirations of starting her own company, works two jobs to support Julian's musical ambitions, which pays off when he lands a recording contract. The record label sets up a showcase just before the album's release, and Julian's performance attracts the attention of a scout for Jay Leno, who invites Julian to play on his show.
