    I personaly thought that A Novel Idea was an amzing read A lot of you seem to be lost in the plot, or dislike it because it seemspre teen or because Griffen That WAS his name, right and Scott were gay I disagree with both of those statements After I read this book, it ultimatly soared it s way over to My Favorite Books list Honestly, I think this is an amazing teen book that fills the heart with both joy and exitment It may have some gay people, but so what It may be a lit I personaly thought that A Novel Idea was an amzing read A lot of you seem to be lost in the plot, or dislike it because it seemspre teen or because Griffen That WAS his name, right and Scott were gay I disagree with both of those statements After I read this book, it ultimatly soared it s way over to My Favorite Books list Honestly, I think this is an amazing teen book that fills the heart with both joy and exitment It may have some gay people, but so what It may be a little fluffy, but who cares If you don t like it, don t read it And for the one girl who didn t finish it, you don t know what your missing out on Your loss, my gain And that is all I ll be saying on this particuler review

    Aimee Friedman had me hooked in the first chapter of A Novel Idea First of all I hated high school like Norah does My guidance councillor seemed to be under the impression that I was friendless untrue , pregnant untrue and where did he get that I wasnt even fat yet and wouldn t amount to much untrue Valentines Day was my least favourite holiday, like Norah.These striking resemblances to my life are not what draws me in though, it s the bookstore they hang out in that I wish we had in Aimee Friedman had me hooked in the first chapter of A Novel Idea First of all I hated high school like Norah does My guidance councillor seemed to be under the impression that I was friendless untrue , pregnant untrue and where did he get that I wasnt even fat yet and wouldn t amount to much untrue Valentines Day was my least favourite holiday, like Norah.These striking resemblances to my life are not what draws me in though, it s the bookstore they hang out in that I wish we had in town, it s the way she blurts things out she means to only think, it s the longing for college life that I remember so clearly Mostly what I love about the book so far is Friedman s casual tone and use of language She sounds educated but laid back, sophisticated minus the snobbery.In chapter 2 Norah confesses to secretly reading romance novels it would kind if ruin my reputation as Literary Girl among my friends I really hate that she feels the need to hide her reading habits I think if people who were known for reading literary classics and good reads admitted to reading beyond those then people who didn t feel up to reading the classics would be less put off by reading due to the negative stigma associated with the books that might appeal to them Also by decreasing the divide between artsy and intellectual reading and the reading of romance or crime drama or whatever, they might encouragepeople to cross the boundaries and read outside of their comfort zone occasionally dabbling in the artsy or intellectual the sweet, simple storylines are just yummy and comforting like eating pistachio ice cream in a hot, bubbly bath This description of reading fluff is awesome It s true that some books are like comfort food, they don t have the protein of social commentary, the vitamins of great ideas and challenging language but sometimes all you really want is a cookie I don t think there s anything wrong with reading these types of books for fun There was a time when all fiction was scoffed at, and I will not be one of those librarians who only approves of reading that is of substance The other thing is that a lot of people make the mistake of thinking genre fiction is all junk food when in fact science fiction for example is often full of amazing insights into our society and deals with big issues that feel less overwhelming when discussed at a distance So I hate when people judge people by what they get at the library Never be ashamed to borrow or buy a book I have to say I was disappointed with the romance plot lines of the book after chapter 2.The main character tried to make a boy jealous by seeming to date a lot of men, and thinks asking out your crush s best friend is a good idea for getting your crush Ugh I have so many problems with this The only guys who would go for those tactics are the ones that are happy you are easy A guy like the one she is after would not fall for someone who juggles too many guys to keep track of and is dating his best friend A decent guy does not go for his best friend s girl.and a decent girl does not use poor geeky boys as pawns and risk breaking their heartsI could go on and on but basically I find the dating strategies that somehow work in this book horrifying.On the other hand, I love the speech Nora gives about Philippa and authors in general at the Book Nook I also enjoy the last line of the book Because boys are boys, and books are books, and, in the end, it s best to have a little of bothI liked the discussion of reading, I did not care for the over the top drama, but that s just my taste

    I remember reading this back in 2006 after eying it in the bookstore on numerous occasions The title, A Novel Idea, and the adorable illustrated cover with the characters looking at their books just made me want to pick it up.It also looked like it was going to be a quick and light read Sometimes if I am reading acomplicated read, I like to also pick up a light one as I did with this book.For a light romantic comedy targeted towards teenage girls, this book was ratherdumbed down Whil I remember reading this back in 2006 after eying it in the bookstore on numerous occasions The title, A Novel Idea, and the adorable illustrated cover with the characters looking at their books just made me want to pick it up.It also looked like it was going to be a quick and light read Sometimes if I am reading acomplicated read, I like to also pick up a light one as I did with this book.For a light romantic comedy targeted towards teenage girls, this book was ratherdumbed down While I did look forward to reading this, at the same time, I did not expect it to be amazing or anything of the sort As the pages turn though, it turns out to be very underwhelming The story revolves a teenage girl who starts a book club Things happen Eventually the main character runs into an actual teenage author known for her poetry and having to hide from the general population like a Hollywood celebrity So the main character has to handle a book club, getting the author into a book signing and of course, falling for a guy The book was waaaayyyy too fluffy for my taste The worst example is when the main character is reading a few pages of a romance novel of when two Regency characters named Lady Something and Lord Earl Something confess their romance novel love for one another and begin to start making lov thankfully the pages only alluded to it before going back to fictional real life with the main character.Another annoying factor revolved around a beautiful but prissy member of the club She throws a hissy fit over Life of Pi which she did not like and just threw it on the table like a typical popular high school girl with a bad attitude She is also predictable She used to be a dorky girl but due to her crush on another guy in the club I believes he is described as a dork as well , she changes her entire persona to act like a cool girl so he would get to notice her In the end, there is YET ANOTHER ANNOYING FLUFFY SCENE where stereotype and HER MAN make out in complete ecstasy with no care to the general public around them.Then ANOTHER factor The poet agreed with the main character to do a book signing at the book store Yet never shows up Instead the main character is left with a note from the poet saying it was just not her thing Main character understands and smiles despite having a largely unsatisfied crowd who showed up to see the poet A big crowd too This poet taught readers that its alright to abandon your responsibilities and potentially ruin a bookstore s credibility and reputation, not to mention might ve had the main character lose her job.The characters were flat The plot was blahhh because of the discribed factors It was a waste of time reading this book

  6. Natalie Natalie says:

    Reeeeeeally far fetched and reeeeeeeeeeally cheesy, with a reeeeeeeeeally clueless main character, but it still had a few funny moments and was overall a cute, fast read.

    Was this a modernization of a Jane Austen novel If so, I definitely missed the connection This was total chicklit and far too juvenile for my tastes I liked the idea of a book club romance, but the story got away from itself Norah s motives were somewhat petty, and her actions were eyeroll inducing I really disliked all the Rosamund schemes It s obvious that James was humouring her, and she really did not need to do things like send herself flowers Seriously, that s wasteful and a bit too Was this a modernization of a Jane Austen novel If so, I definitely missed the connection This was total chicklit and far too juvenile for my tastes I liked the idea of a book club romance, but the story got away from itself Norah s motives were somewhat petty, and her actions were eyeroll inducing I really disliked all the Rosamund schemes It s obvious that James was humouring her, and she really did not need to do things like send herself flowers Seriously, that s wasteful and a bit too extra From that plot onwards, I felt detached from the story I also found our reclusive author annoying If you make promises to people, you better deliver A manuscript for a tight knit group of people is unimpressive Think about how disappointed everyone else must ve been Fluffy, shallow, and inconsequential

    In the beginning and in the end of reading this book, I did enjoy it It was parts in the middle that made it seem a bit too silly and unbelieveable Not to say all novels must BE believeable but there were just points where there was no way a girl would ever go through such lengths to win over a guy Well, in my opinion anyway But other than that i really enjoyed the book I felt i could see myself in a lot of the characters during the story Its not a great read but i do recommend it to other In the beginning and in the end of reading this book, I did enjoy it It was parts in the middle that made it seem a bit too silly and unbelieveable Not to say all novels must BE believeable but there were just points where there was no way a girl would ever go through such lengths to win over a guy Well, in my opinion anyway But other than that i really enjoyed the book I felt i could see myself in a lot of the characters during the story Its not a great read but i do recommend it to others because it was indeed still entertaining I will probably search outof Aimee s books too see if there are ones bettert than this one
