    Review from my book blog (wordpress / livejournal) Usually when I hear about a book these days, I'll wait for news in the ether, let my awareness build and then this percolates into a desire to read the book. Very rarely do I read one review and I HAVE to get the book right away, bu...

    I'm still just a little bit protective of my feelings over this book. Do you ever feel that way after finishing a book that completely threw you for a loop (in the very best way)? I feel distinctly protective of our relationship, the book and I. I'm still mulling over the way things en...

    3.5 stars This is going to be a tough review to make spoiler free, but I'm going to try so I apologize in advance if it seems a little fragmented. This book was weird. I have never both loved and hated a book so strongly as I did with this one. So, I was heartened to see when I read...

    You guys, you know when you have one reviewer who's reviews and recommendations for books you trust 100% because you just KNOW they could never falter? Well, thats what Angie from Angieville is to me. After reading her review of this book I just knew without a shadow of a doubt that I ...

    EDIT - I'm leaving my original review below for interest, but I honestly don't know what I was smoking when I originally gave it two stars. The writing is just gulpably good, and the characters so nuanced. I whipped through it and loved every crazy second of these broken people as ...

    Originally posted here. I dare you to read Angie's review of Unsticky and not be convinced to read the book as soon as you can. I believe several other bloggers were persuaded to do just that. Ari of Emily and Her Little Pink Notes (who is on a blogging hiatus) has also been recomme...

    4 stars. He treats her bad. They both are flawed. But good story. I was absorbed. Happy ending but abrupt. STORY BRIEF: Wealthy art dealer Vaughn hires Grace to be his girlfriend/mistress for six months. Vaughn is single. He doesn?t do normal relationships. Grace earns low incom...

    I?m torn between hating everything in this book to loving all of it (mostly because I cannot stop thinking about the people in it.) It?s an absolute puzzle really. There was nothing good in them! The girl went from being superficial, to being whiny then to being a doormat then late...

    I just feel like, like ... I'm just not good enough, not ever. I'm not worth anything. And sometimes I feel it so much, like there's this big hole inside me and I don't know how to fix it so I go and buy all this stuff because if I have these pretty, expensive things then it must mean...

    This review was originally published on Clear Eyes, Full Shelves. ?We're broken. It's like we have all these jagged edges that scare other people off, but when we're with each other, our jagged edges fit together and we're almost whole.? On paper, Sarra Manning's Unsticky has all...

    This book seems like a weird mix of Confessions of a Shopaholic and Fifty Shades of Grey. On one side we have young girl, who can?t manage her finances and instead of dealing with problems she pretends that they don?t exist. Her personal life and career are a mess and she like to...

    ?I feel like life happens to other people, and I drift in and out of their lives without ever making any kind of impact. I want to matter to someone.? I became a huge fan of Manning?s adult novels, after devouring You Don?t Have to say You Love Me. Despite me knowing which w...

    I am only 5% in the book and I stumbled on something that I really want to talk about. The author refers to the greek alphabet : ?Did you know the number twenty-three is meant to have mystical qualities? There are twenty-three letters in the Greek alphabet?. Well the greek alpha...

    The characters annoyed me in this book. The storyline was basically the same as Manning?s other novel: You Don?t Have To Say You Love Me. And it was far, far too long again. It dragged and I couldn?t wait for it to be over. So, yes, sorry, this review is pretty negative, but I...

    OK...Honestly, I'd heard mixed reviews on this one. I didn't quite know what to expect. But I have to say I was loving this story from the very beginning. I still don't quite get the title, but that is neither here nor there. I suppose I'll have to ask the author. Anyway the characters...

    5 stars is not enough when rating this book. It deserves more, in my opinion, for how it made me feel and the height of the different emotions I went through. I immediately fell in love with this book. This is without any doubt one of the best books I have ever read and I know from her...

    It's not often that a book takes me completely by surprise. When I cracked open the spine of Unsticky, I knew what I was getting into - a modern-day "Pretty Woman" if you will. And yet, despite knowing what was to come, I was continuously blown away by this novel; by its charm, by its ...

    5+ STARS This book was AMAZING! I loved the witty Brit humour that subtly permeated an otherwise drama filled novel. I loved the fashion references and high-end labels I can only dream about. I loved the main characters and the way I felt like I was a part of their world. I loved ...

    Wow this book is Amazing! I love every bits of it from beginning till' end just like a sticky toffee pudding:) (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] Don't click, you'll be hungry;) Despite their difference, because of their differences, they were a perfect mismatched set. Two sides ...

    It's NOT what I've imagined to be from this author. Grace is vapid. Nothing interesting or remotely inviting in her character. Shallow and more then a little stupid. She gets dumped by a guy who doesn't love her, and she doesn't love him back. She cries..... Not because the relatio...

    I just want you to know that I?m very glad that we found each other.? Grace liked how he?d phrased it. Because they had both been alone and a little bit broken. Then they?d bumped into each other and something had finally stuck. ?Me too,? she said, and her eyelids were dro...

    Grace really came a long way in this book. At the start I just wanted to bash her head in with all the horrible decisions she was making, the mess she made of her life, her constant spending, she was on her way to an episode of Hoarders. But she grew up and it was fun to watch. Vaughn ...

    You guys... really, if you don't ever listen to another thing I tell you, listen to this. READ. THIS. BOOK. I really really don't understand how this doesn't have 9 million reviews or how this isn't some supremely popular author with droves of adoring fans. I'm not even totally sure...

    "Time's up, Grace. Are you in or out?" Doesn't quite have the same ring as "Pretty Woman," does it? 2.75 stars. Consider Unsticky to be 1 part Chick Lit and 2 parts dramatic Contemporary Romance. Confused yet? I would have sworn this was straight chick lit...up until it was...
