Cynical Natalie: Because Ms. Monroe was a lazy ass and didn't take notes. So now we have to do her dirty work. Nice Natalie: Oh, come now. It's only because she doesn't know what to feel towards A Girl Like You.
She's in her late twenties, but acts like a ditzy high-schooler. Nice Natalie: Becky from Confessions of a Shopaholic is immature too, but we love her. A lot of chick-lie heroines are like that; it makes them relatable. Cynical Natalie: Are you kidding me? I don't want to relate with her. I don't want to be the same species as her. She has no idea what the fuck she's doing.
We're 21 and we have a better grasp on life than she does. Nice Natalie: For now. What happens when we graduate and can't find a job? Or hate our job?
Abigail's situation resembles real life.
Cynical Natalie: Whatever. And she keeps going on and on about Desperate Singleton. We spend so much educating women that getting a guy isn't the most important thing in life, and Abigail won't stop whining about it.
Nice Natalie: Please, don't tell me you've never thought about Desperate Singleton.

It's not anti-feminist to want a man. It is anti-feminist to stifle literature about different kinds of women, including those romance-based. Cynical Natalie: Yeah, but it doesn't mean I have to like. Sort order. Oct 25, Inge rated it it was amazing Shelves: Be cool 2. Be detached 3.
Act brutal 4. Stay in control 5. Bulletproof 6. Always leave them before they leave you. After being in a relationship for 7 years, Abigail is back on the market and completely lost.
With these 6 tips in mind and a little help from her friends, she goes out into the dating world and acts like a dude. Apparently, this is the key to success. Everything is going very 1.
Will she be able to keep her cool? I loved everything about this book. It was very original. Just the idea of a woman trying to act like a man to get dates and having a womaniser helping her out every step of the way. I felt like she was really talking to me and it added to the reading experience.
Even the swear words added to the story! The relationship between Abigail and Robert was the most adorable thing ever, even if they were just friends. Their constant banter; their effortless, comfortable friendship; their insults and jokes which had me laughing along with them.
And then there were the sad parts where they had to look after each other and they cheered each other up. I could read about these two for ages, they were so much fun! This one had me laughing out loud and grinning from ear to ear. This isn't ordinary chicklit. This is chicklit with balls. View all 11 comments.

I've been thinking it over and it doesn't deserve a three. You know 'em, you love 'em, welcome to the stage Nice Natalie and Cynical Natalie!
Nice Natalie: It's been a while since we've been called upon to do a review. Cynical Natalie: Because Ms. Monroe was a lazy ass and didn't take notes. So now we have to do her dirty work.
Oh, come now. It's only because she doesn't know what to feel towards A Girl Like You. Well, I know exactly how I feel: Abigail deserves to burn in hell with Nora Grey and the rest of them.
She's in her late twenties, but acts like a ditzy high-schooler. Becky from Confessions of a Shopaholic is immature too, but we love her. A lot of chick-lie heroines are like that; it makes them relatable.

Look at the writing, for God's sake: Okay, fine, that's a bad sentence. But the rest of it is quite good. Her inner monologues make me want to drown her, save her, then drown her again.
I repeat, her inner monologues made me want to drown her, save her, then drown her again. I'm not going above two. This isn't a poker game! Like you know how poker works.
Neither of us knows how poker works! Let's just mark it a three and call it a day. That's so mean! Mean is my middle name.
Now fold. But no putting it on top. And the star rating stays three. Fine by me. For those of you still reading, it sucks. It really doesn't.

Apr 01, Mona rated it it was amazing. I cried. I don't wanna talk about it. I love this book.
A Girl Like You
I LOL'd. I rolled around the bed one week so obsessed by the book by the time I finished reading it small rodents had settled into my hair and were debating expanding the nest to a small condo and I had gained 5 pounds from nibbling on whatever I came across in the house. Again, I cried. I said I don't wanna talk about it, but it should be mentioned that they were happy tears. I don't often get happy t I cried.
I don't often get happy tears. I get sad lots, but true joy? Oh yes, in this book. It was a lovely length. I don't like short chick lit everything must be solved by chapter 6! Just a straightforward plot which was in all honesty predictable, but thoroughly enjoyable nonetheless. Like walking into a scary house and expecting a spider to fall from the ceiling and instead having a net fall on you and you're on the floor gasping in fear and trapped while live tarantulas crawl up your leg.
Exactly like that. Only funny and romantic. I had a few snags with the plot, but the characterization and romantic developments were fun. One regret. As always, every time I walk away from a chick-lit book I find myself pawing through my wardrobe wishing I had a sense of style. Would give to a fan of romance and believer in 'the one' since that's the theme this book pushes relentlessly. View 2 comments. Aug 13, Delirious Disquisitions rated it it was amazing Shelves: So I just finished reading this book I simply fell in love with the book and its characters.
I loved the way the author wrote this book from the starting to the acknowledgements. It was simply brilliant! I loved,absolutely loved Robert!
A guy who cooks,takes care of breakfast when you are late for work, who So I just finished reading this book A guy who cooks,takes care of breakfast when you are late for work, who nurses you back to health, protects your virtue and faints at the sight of blood! A man so loving and just perfect! I loved him! I admired Abigail's resilience and thought there were times when my heart broke as a consequence of her actions recall hotel room departure after they made love!!
I could relate to her. And last but not the least, I must say I loathed that absolute cow belle and her stupid boyfriend!! All in all an excellent book. A must read! Aug 09, Emer rated it it was amazing Shelves: I'm not a big rereader of books and especially not chick lits.
However there are certain authors and books for which I will make an exception. This is one such case. How did it go second time around???? Bloody marvellous!!!! There isn't much in books or music or films that helps you leave someone who is very, very nice but just not quite right. He's not mean, you're not miserable, no one cheats. It's just a sad, slo I'm not a big rereader of books and especially not chick lits.
It's just a sad, slow process of ending it. Enter her womanising new flatmate Robert who becomes her dating guru and teaches her the tricks of the trade of London's dating scene aka "be detached, be bulletproof! Abigail is a great leading character. She's so clueless and funny, yet nice and normal. Robert is one of my all time fav book boyfriends.
And the cast of supporting characters are a great addition to the storyline whenever they pop up. This is just funny and lighthearted and I think I may have even enjoyed it more the second time around. Chock full of all the things I love in a chick-lit: View all 10 comments. Dec 01, Natasha rated it it was amazing Shelves: Read 2: Read 1: December 8, - 5 stars. A sweet light read.
This was a ton of fun, with an incredibly satisfying emotional payoff. The characters are well-drawn enough to evoke Cecelia Ahern without the magical realism with maybe a touch of Bridget Jones's Diary though a very light touch.
What makes the book work, for me, is that I just liked Abigail so much. She has been in emotional stasis for a long time and seeing her emerge, and mature, was just a whole lot of fun.
A Girl Like You

Frankly, it's a bit brilliant to take an ignorant observer and thrust them into the dating scene with an experienced native in this case, Robert. Abigail's exploration of dating as a former outsider is fascinating as is Robert's often insightful guidance.
And it doesn't hurt, of course, that Robert is such a fantastic guy. As an indication of exactly how much I liked him, he still came across as studly tooling Abigail around London on a moped. Hard to believe, I know The book went a little long in the middle with Abigail's hang-up on the jerkwad jackwagon, Dave.
I get a week with a popular, charismatic party guy. A month, maybe, with Abigail's inexperience. But three months? Yeah, she needed the contrast maybe to understand that she isn't as emotionally detached as she thought she was. And he serves as a wonderful contrast to the lovely Robert. Even so, I think a good deal of that length could have disappeared and maybe improved the book a bit in the process. That said, the culmination of the book, its emotional climax, was well worth the wait.
I kept waiting for the cringe as the situation buildup was rather extreme and there were a lot of moving parts involved with complex characters I cared about strewn about the scenery. But Burgess handled everything beautifully with a climax that flowed so well and naturally that tears actually flowed yeah, that isn't that great an accomplishment with me.
A note about editions: It looks like Avon originally published the book but that the author is the one with the eBook rights. As such, the two aren't actually linked so if you hit site on the hard copy it doesn't link the site book from there and vice versa. That may be the case in other retailers as well with such a complicated rights issue. The upside of this is that the site version is extremely well priced for the quality of the writing. The author messed up, some, on the formatting with what looks like one dialog word globally replaced such that if the quote starts with it you just get a comma.
Like this: It's a place-marker word, though something like "hmmm" or "m'kay" , so no real harm done. A note about Steamy: There's sex in the book, and a make out or two that get pretty hot, but Burgess cuts well before we get terribly explicit. It's just enough for me to flag as "Steamy" but on the lowest possible setting. View all 15 comments. Feb 05, Didi rated it liked it Shelves: I usually don't read chick lit. And aside from the last few chapters of this book, I don't think I want to again any time soon.
So why did I read it? Well, for one, the premise sounded good and secondly, the reviews were stellar. I should have clued in that most of these reviews were from regular chick lit readers--there's nothing wrong with that, but it's not my preference. I liked, no loved the ending.
The last chapter pretty much made me cry. It was sincere and beautiful. The speech Robert H gave was heart melting and touching. So what didn't work? All the usual elements of a chick lit book: I know it was supposed to be the highlight of the story but it wasn't.
Robert was supposed to feel a certain way about Abby, okay, I get that. But I'm not a mind reader. Aside from a few scenes in the last third, I would never think he had a thing for her. Even those instances before the glaringly obvious ones in the last few chapters left me feeling I honestly think that since I'm used to more meat to a romance, more obvious sexual tension, more angst over a person you're supposed to be in love with Is the reader supposed to intuitively understand what's going through the heads of the main characters??
It felt more about self discovery then finding your true love. And only in the last few chapters did I think Where the story focused solely on Abby and Robert. Chick lit's tend to insert love interests in the most bizarre way leaving me feeling like I missed a few dozen chapters.
Did I mention I'm not a fan of that? Even the kissing was glossed over aside from letting me know it was splendid. The pivotal scene between Rob and Abby, which was supposed to be the breaking point should have been detailed but Of course Abby makes some stupid decisions, picks the wrong guy, before finally clueing in to the right one under her nose all along.
But maybe, just maybe, she would have seen things sooner had a certain someone been more obvious. Apparently he was to all the characters in the book, this made me feel really dumb. How can everyone in the story see it except the reader??!! Anywho, like I said, a fantastic ending to an otherwise lacklustre story.
I loved Robert and Abby together. They were best friends before the fireworksapparently there the whole time, but don't ask meand sweet together after all the crap was out of the way. If this was written as a slowly brewing love story I would have cried from joy. But it wasn't although it was??
Don't ask me! And lastly, do normal people drink that much?! Okay back to the romance I love! No more chick lit. I hope.

This review probably won't make sense, but bear with me. When reading this book, you may encounter the following symptoms: THIS is the reason I love chicklits. This book is the reason. It has a beautiful sister bond, an even more beautiful family bond and oh my Christ, if you don't like this, we can't be friends. This is classic chicklit feat. The Ugly Truth. Sassy, witty, fluffy and romantic. The Summary: After splitting with her boyfriend of seven years, Abigail Wood is single and very ready to mingle.
She can't remember how to date or even how to act around a guy without scaring them away. She's desperate ew to mingle but has no idea where to start Hot, ravishing Robert, her flatmate and his six rules to surviving the single life and you get a beautiful, cheesy, fluffy book that will leave you giggling and sighing. The Characters: Let's scream "Hurrah!
Abby is fucking hilarious.
She's smart, sarcastic and witty and knows what to say in all the right and wrong situations. I found it impossible to dislike her and even when she was acting like a complete dickhead, I still loved her unconditionally. Her attitude and outlook on life is something to admire. Even being stuck in a dead-end job, she tries to see the positives in everything. It's not perfect, of course - the en-suite bathroom is poky, and the wardrobe is tiny, but my clothes have adjusted very well to the transition.
They're such troopers. I look down at my black peep-toes. Yes, you, I think. You're a trooper. He's funny, hot, incredibly caring and straightforward: You look like shit. Go have some fun. He's witty and funny and defuses every situation quickly. It's impossible not like and relate to the characters.
With every page I turned, I found myself either giggling or sighing and trust me, even if you're out of breath after all the giggling and sighing, get an oxygen mask because you will feel the need to continue said giggling and sighing.
I can't believe I didn't read this before. It wasn't until the lovely Inge where have you been all my life?! And boy, I was NOT disappointed. From now on, I vow to follow Inge's recommendations forever and always. Don't let me down, girl. This story has many ups and downs and it's incredibly easy to read.
I admit it took me a while to get into it, but it wasn't the books' fault. I just lost the will to read this past week, so it took me much longer than the average book, but when I finally sat down and read it properly, it was unputdownable that is a word now, ok?
This GIF depicts everything I'm feeling: View all 12 comments. Jul 11, Jadaloves rated it it was amazing. I was swept into London, and the quirky dating world of Abigail Wood and I enjoyed every minute of it. But the atmosphere just seems so divine and fun.
This book was no different. Abigail was a great leading lady. After moving in with her flatmate Robert, notorious ladies man, she begins to take his dating advice, which makes for some interesting adventures. I love how she embraces singledom and eventually learns to take charge and basically navigate her own dating life instead of letting things happen.
The ups, the downs, they were all fascinating and satisfying. I also adored me some Robert. He appears to be very nonchalant and unaffected, but this guy has layers.
He and Abigail develop the most amazing friendship and I loved reading about it. I am a big proponent of love born out of friendship. Eventually everyone can see how this story is going to end up except for Robert and Abigail. But reading about them getting there was the best part. Even the minor characters in this book were great.

She was too funny and always inappropriate. Her sister Sophie was sweet and kind, and her friend Henry was such a loveable dork. And the many other friends and acquaintances all add something unique to the story whether I liked them or not.
This book was so well written with the perfect blend of crass and sass. Really this was just a beautiful story of true friendship and what can happen when you take a risk on something more. This was so much more than I thought it was going to be. I'm so glad I picked it up. Be cool Be silly Be detached Be direct Act brutal Be kind Stay in control Let yourself do whatever you want Bulletproof Have an open heart Always leave them before they leave you Be true to yourself and everything will work out.
Loved it! I could really relate to some things. I was stuck for years with "Dave" situation not exactly the same, long story for another time and this year I finally got him out of my life This was so much more than I thought it was going to be. I was stuck for years with "Dave" situation not exactly the same, long story for another time and this year I finally got him out of my life and my head I feel so much better.
People that make you feel miserable and make you doubt yourself are like anchors. They drag you down, drain all your energy and and you're left with self doubt, regrets and emptiness. So yeah, get rid of them, even if you love them, it's the right thing to do. No one you love should make you feel like shit. Be who you want to be and don't change for anyone.Her sister Sophie was sweet and kind, and her friend Henry was such a loveable dork.
Hard to believe, I know Now fold. So now we have to do her dirty work. I don't want to relate with her. Nice Natalie: It really doesn't. But don't get me wrong: I found this book obviously here in goodreads while browsing what chiclit would made my day and took a risk in this one.
Look at the writing, for God's sake: "I drew in a sharp breath, a bursting shocked feeling in my chest.
She loves talking and writing, not necessarily in that order.
