Book 1: Glitter Baby

11 Nov

Glitter Baby by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Hello, Book Friends!

Okay So this one is alittle bit cheating. Like all Romance novels, they’re mostly predictable in that you know the girl is gonna get the guy. But dang it S.E.P. If you don’t make me so invested in your stories. Miss Phillips cradled me into my first foray of romance novels with Lady Be Good, (the second r.novel I ever read) and I haven’t been able to stay away from her ever since. Now if you readers would kindly check out the lovely book chart (yes I’m a bit of a brag about what I’ve read, but it also keeps me from rereading what I’ve already read) then you can see that I’ve a lot of her work. So I thought I’d complete the list and that’s how I found myself on my local library website checking about 5 of her books out of the 13 books (you’ll learn about the rest later on 😉 ) I checked out the following week.

My Note-ings:

( and a few of her older books) how she gives the background story of the parents of the main girl, Fleur.

It was hard to place myself in their world, given that I am accustomed to internet/cellphones/the whole instant gratification thing.

Fleur living out the whole rags to riches, American Dream

While this was a romance novel, the romance wasn’t oozing out of all the pores, and I kind of liked it like that, focusing more on Fleur then the Fleur/Jake dynamic.

I can empathize with Fleur’s feelings of being a gigantic she-man when compared with her petite bff Krissy. (granted I’m not almost six feet tall, but I do got about 6 inches of height and twenty pounds on my midget bff)
