    Dont want to hide this, but there are some light spoilers in the review What I usually expect from a chick lit is to have a quite unlikely story that makes me mostly laugh, and in which is clear from the beginning who will be the prince charming in the end This time I haven t had this impression here Annie, the personal shopper and main character is somehow someone who the writer would like to be a real person Someone who has a family to take care of, and in the meanwhile would like to meet the [...]

    I was really excited to read this book, because I m somewhat of a shopaholic, and I sell clothing on eBay, just like the main character However, I was somewhat disappointed in this book return returnThe way the main character, Annie, speaks was just downright annoying All the babes and darlin s that kept popping up drove me crazy I wanted to slap her And I just could not believe how quickly she capitulated in her job, or furthered her relationships seemed unrealistic Annie was flawed, and not in [...]

    Today s book review is a nice light hearted romp into the magical world of shopping in high fashion London The Personal Shopper is the tale of Annie Valentine, a single mum of two who works at a posh London department store as a duh personal shopper She helps the extremely wealthy and the occasional friend colleague invent and reinvent themselves through clothes and accessories She s a sassy, saucy, sweetheart of a character, which of course means she runs afoul of a horrid boss, well meaning bu [...]

    I downloaded this book for free I am glad I didn t pay for it I am a bit of shopaholic and I tend to enjoy books about shopping and fashion, but this book was really hard to finish It took me 4 attempts to finally finish.Possible spoilers warning Annie is so unlikeable what a self centered, stuck up person I feel for those poor children being dragged around from one place to another Her insistence and reasons for keeping her children in a private school even though she can t afford it is mind bo [...]

    I ve never read anything by Carmen Reid before, so I decided to check this out.Annie Valentine has the perfect jobe s a personal shopper and spends all day choosing clothes for people She has two children, Owen and Lana Lana is the typical rebelling teen, but Owen is interesting She used to be married, but we don t find out what happened to her husband until the end I was genuinely shocked, it was something I never saw coming Never Annie is very lonely and desperate to find a new man And so she [...]

    Unfortunately, I read the sequel to this book before the original, so I had a bit of strange pre knowledge going in Annie Valentine is even annoying in this book, and this is the one that intros her She is good at her job, and the personal shopping angle is quite interesting as is the dynamic with her children This book explains how Annie and Ed get together Overall, the story was good, as I definitely kept reading, but the one thing I really didn t like was the way the author kept Roddy s depa [...]

  9. Rosie

    This book was just so funny Right at the start you re lead to believe that Annie Valentine s husband has left her with their rebellious teenage daughter and very shy son Annie s best friend is gay and he really brings a lot of humour to the book I think he was my favourite character She works as a personal shopper in a huge shop called The Store she s very good at her job and has a few other things that she does on the side to support her family All the characters are pretty lovable apart from G [...]

    Annie Valentine has got to be one of the most vapid wenches ever conceived Nothing remotely likeable about her or her kids and her parenting skills are shameful, fiction or not Boring and predictable, I only finished it because I needed something mindless to do on my son s first day back at school I am regretting that choice, as it s time I will never get back.

  11. Suzanne

    I really, really liked this book I enjoy chick lit, and was expecting a light, breezy read This, while somewhat traditionally light, went beyond the normal chick lit and had some depth to it, including a twist that was WAY unexpected I loved Annie and Ed, Lana, Owen, and Conner I can t wait to the read the next in this series

  12. Ramsha

    I was not really sure about this book when I initially started reading it but by the end I was really glad that I gave it a shot Firstly, If I had any idea about an occupation known as personal shopper I would have opted for it instead I was so so angry at Rooney for leaving Annie and family but it broke my heart when the reason was unveiled Life can suck and it sucked so much I so LOVE Conner that I so want a friend like him in my life Ed and Owen were lovely I m so proud of Ed, people like him [...]

    I was looking for something light and fun after reading a very long series I only ended up finishing the book because I didn t want to start the year off by quitting a book I didn t like it very much The story could have been fun, but Annie, the main character is a vapid and neurotic b tch The way that she describes people she sees on the street is horrendous She only cares about people if they can do something for her Oh, you re not rich Well you can bloody well f ck off then Annie will not was [...]

    3.5 stars This is my first Carmen Reid book It was lovely The beginning was good, then it got a little slow I blame the Roddy flashbacks Once it picked up it was hard to put down If you enjoy chick lit literature with a little romance, fashion, lots of shopping, and fun characters give this a go.Yeahs I enjoyed reading Annie s personal shopping experiences It was fashionably witty Ed and Annie s relationship build up was done very well It was sweet and realistic The reader is able to fall for Ed [...]

    In questo periodo di crisi in cui apro il portafoglio e vedo solamente scontrini e quindi lo shopping limitato alle cose di prima necessit , mi sono detta perch non leggere un libro che parla di shopping Purtroppo per la voglia di fare acquisti non mi passata, ma parliamo del libroMi dispiace dirlo, ma nulla di nuovo sotto il sole Se cambiassimo nome della scrittrice e mettessimo Sophie Kinsella, avremmo un altro libro della serie I love shopping Questo non vuol essere un offesa perch , di tanto [...]

    Capisco che un libro leggero e certo non mi aspettavo una scrittura sopraffina o dei colpi di scena mozzafiato Ma qui si rasenta l harmony La protagonista che punta tutto sull apparire, sui soldi, su quanto sono firmati gli abiti che indossi terribilmente fastidiosa e superficiale, come dimostrato dalla sua disperata ricerca di un uomo, che per deve essere bello, ricco, elegante, firmato, con una bella casa, una luminosa carriera, poco importa se poi non ci si pu fare un discorso di senso compiu [...]

    This book had some really great moments The book had me laughing at some of the sub stories that occur within the plot line The story also had me teary at one point My main complaint about the book was that the plot was all over the place at the beginning of the book It wasn t until about half way through that the plot and the focus of the book came into focus, before that it seemed to be random vignettes from the life of a personal shopper although they were great stories so I kept reading My o [...]

    Oi It s the second time that I ve read this book This time I would give it three stars, not four, but let it stay it this way.Too much about nothing, not a lot of action, and a lot about clothes Of course there was happening something from time to time, but it came suddenly, it was very fast finished and came never again OK, the characters are very nice, I actually liked them all, they were warm and friendly, typical family with its problems school, work, money, love life Some funny moments as w [...]

    This book was of a 3.5 5 Carmen Reid is a well known author of chick lit and having read a previous title by her, or two, this book, the first in her Annie Valentine or Shopper series is very well written Annie s struggle to come to grips with Roddy s desertion and dealing with her two children all on a tight budget is not going well She s lonely too and her lovely job as a personal shopper at The Store is becoming painful due to a mean boss Carmen Reid does a great job at keeping the pace of t [...]

    First half I like the tone of it, but it s not really my world I m afraid Wow.I m really close to the end, just ending Chapter 30 I cannot really put it down It s so controversial to me First, I could not really read it, because it was all about clothes and that s just really not what I m interested but now thinking about the Queen Of Babble series had also a huge clothing line Now it revealed that Roddy actually died I m just furious I was on the bus heading to uni when I reached that part and [...]

    What is wrong with Annie Lana Okay Lana was a teenager so i ll cut her some slack.At Gray s, Annie could ve told her kids to pick after themselves and try to keep the house clean But it read like she let them turned it into pigsty and they aren t toddlers At Connor s, Annie thought that Hector s presence was another irritation to cope with Hello, you re the one intruding on the lovers, towing 2 kids, looking for a shelter because things didnt work out with sugar daddy Love the storyline and usef [...]

    This story follows Annie a great personal shopper who can transform clients within seconds from drab to fab, but her only challenge is settling for the right man.She has two kids Lana and Owen and somewhere along the way meets Ed Owen s teacher they share a kiss, and her best friend Connor asks her to get together with the guy because he s perfect for her.I loved this story towards the end, let s say the last twenty pages because it had of Annie accepting who she is and dealing with her past Ro [...]

    Dovrei averlo capito da tempo, ma ci casco sempre I chick lit, dopo un certo numero, diventano indigesti Prevedibili fin dalle prime battute, perennemente alla ricerca della stessa fama che ha ottenuto la kinsella ma senza riuscirci ma provando ad inserire un po delle sue dinamiche , e con il sapore di gi detto gi visto gi letto Questo mi risultato insipido, le scene che avfrebbero dovuto far ridere mi hanno solo fatto un po di pena e insomma lo sto stroncando, lo so Ma la colpa solo mia che con [...]

    Finished the book I brought to my old school and picked this one up to spend some time Not really my style with all the brand names and the lifestyle of overspending to impress Figured out early on who she would end up with I was confused once the author revealed the reason her husband s not around, but I could swear there was divorce mentioned too as to why she had a friend I might have to go back and reread that section to confirm It s a really quick read despite the fact that I m not up to sp [...]

    Beetje voorspelbaar Annie Valentine is personal shopper van beroep, en je raad het al dol op mode Ze heeft haar man verloren en stuurt haar kinderen naar een dure school In haar zoektocht naar een nieuwe man is ze op zoek naar een rijke man die haar kan helpen Maar eigenlijk wil ze tegelijkertijd geen hulp omdat ze altijd alles alleen heeft gedaan.Een golddigger eerste klas, die verstand boven hart laat gaan maar uiteindelijk toch haar hart gaat volgen Heerlijk voorspelbaar en gedachteloos leesv [...]

  26. Evangeline

    Yo yos between just being a bit of light hearted fun and being shallow rubbish If read this book shouldn t be taken too seriously The main character, Annie Valentine, can at times seem like an annoying, shallow bimbo who puts herself before her kids, but I did start feeling sorry for her towards the end And the book finishes at a point that left me wondering whether or not I should read the sequel to see what happens next
