Books that was simply nputdownable I
Became So Engrossed In Theso engrossed in the that I couldn t have put the book down even if I had wanted to because I needed to know what happened The book wasn t exactly glued to my hand but it might as well have been because it travelled everywhere with me The pages turned over rather ickly as I raced my way through this story All too ickly I reached the end of the book and I had to bid farewell to Carly and her friends uickly I reached the end of the book and I had to bid farewell to Carly and her friends hope that this is not the last time we meet her Christmas At Carly s Cupcakes is superbly written but then I have thought that to be true of all of Jessica s books that I have had the pleasure of reading and reviewing She has one of those easy going writing styles that reads like a chat between friends than reading an actual story I hope that makes sense Jessica is one of those writers who ses such vivid and realistic descriptions that the reader feels as though they are part of the story themselves That s how I felt at any rate The only problem with this book was the fact that I ended Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, up craving cake which isn t good for somebody trying to lose weight Ha haI have to be honest and say that Christmas At Carly s Cupcakes was a difficult read for me at times I know that sounds really negative but I don t mean it that way Let me explain when Carly was younger she was bulliedite badly at school to the extent that it impacted on her daily life and she still bears the psychological scars as an adult When she was at school the school basically swept the bullying Lay My Burden Down under the carpet and she endsp not reporting the bullying incidents to her teachers because nothing was ever done This is where it gets a bit personal To cut a long story short I was badly bullied throughout school from 5 years of age Vérité (Love at Center Court, until 16 years of age After an assault at school I was left with a permanent disability which I will now have for life That would be bad enough but the psychological and emotional scars are even worse Like Carly I stopped reporting the incidents because I was fobbed off with either so and so isn t capable of bullying or you are being too sensitive Jessica has either experienced bullying herself I hope not or she knows somebody who has because she was spot on with describing how a bullying survivor feels She was so accurate that when I was reading passages about the bullying a shiver literally wentp my spine That s enough of my personal warblings but I just wanted to let you know why this book was at times difficult for meIn short I thoroughly
