    Like most Chick Lit fans, the arrival of a brand new Chick Lit author is something to cheer I love a good debut novel, there s no expectations, no preconceived notions, nothing Just the chance to be introduced to the new wave of Chick Lit authors who join have the chance to join the ranks of Marian Keyes, Sophie Kinsella et al and become authors I look out for Idol is a novel I ve been waiting ages to read It s bright pink cover appealed to me and I was incredibly thrilled and excited to receive a proof copy of the novel to review I ve spent June getting my backlog of review copies out of the way, and Idol was one of them and I spent a happy and sunny Friday reading it.There are many debut novels that have blown me away It Happened In Paris by Molly Hopkins and From Notting Hill With Love Actually to name two there are , mind and I desperately wanted Idol to join those ranks The synopsis above was intriguing, I love the idea of two girls being pitted against each other The singer vs the dancer, as Jenna and Sadie both make their rapid rise in their respective roles before the epic showdown Sadly, that s not the case The epic showdown between Sadie and Jenna doesn t occur, and they only re meet each other about 100 pa...

    Really enjoyable readThis is the first book by Duffy that I have read and thoroughly every page Based on a celebrity pop star and a struggling professional dancer, who have history from their childhood that they must put aside and work together to achieve a joint revenge goal.

    I came across Carrie Duffy when I was putting together content for International Chick Lit Month and the synopsis of her new book, Diva immediately spoke to me Three ladies living in Paris who are trying to make something of themselves in the fashion world The release date for Diva was not until a few months down the line so I contained myself by reading her previous title, Idol The outline of this book is very similar to Diva but set in the entertainment industry Jenna is a global pop sensation with millions of fans and hit albums Her light hearted teeny ballads are lapped up by her tween audiences but she wants something harder material that will let people take her seriously The chance arrives in the form of rock band, Phoenix who Jenna begins working with on a collaborative album and with it comes Nick Taylor, the talented and gorgeous drummer The two fall for each other and quickly become the new IT couple Now Jenna has it all a huge career and a guy who adores her, it all seems so perfect Or is it On the hand there is Sadie Laine, a session dancer who is trying to hit the big time She and Jenna have history they were both in a dance competition years back where Sadie gave the performance of her life She should have won but she didn t because Jenna s mum was having relations with one of the judges Jenna won and went off to...

    At first I didn t think this book seemed very promising, but the I read the I found myself getting into it Still it s not really my kind of book I like novels about fame, so that s why I picked this up I found the book really gripping towards the end The novel is about the perspective of two young women Jenna Jonsson, a famous pop singer who is living the dream and Sadie Laine, a struggling dancer who should be where Jenna is A few years back they were rivals at a dance competition Jenna won when it should have been Sadie However on a holiday to Vegas, Sadie is discovered and offered the opportunity to be in an all girl dance group Meanwhile Jenna is doing a collaboration with famous rock band, Phoenix, though her reason for joining is partly because she fancies the gorgeous Nick Taylor.I found the characters a bit bland and a bit distant, they were not really characters I could relate to they were both a bit naive and irritating Their personalities seemed a little bland and I didn t find them that interesting The novel offers a realistic perspective of fame and what a corrupt and sexualised industry it has become There was a few good twists and it wasn t entirely predictable I wasn t expecting all the sex scenes there were in the book it was like 50 Shades of Grey P Sometimes less is I just felt that although it was an fair read with some good twists, I just didn t really connect with or like the characters and it was all a bi...

    As far as chick lit books go, this wasn t anything to rave about It was okay The men were relatively hot, if not a bit bland, and the women were the type that you were supposed to be insanely jealous of Which I wasn t This was mostly because the two protagonists weren t likeable, particularly Jenna, who often came across as childish and spoiled Supposedly she grew as a character as someone points out at the end, but I did not see this at all She was just as annoying and as much of a brat as she was at the end than at the beginning.Both Sadie and Jenna were described as undeniably stunning with perfect figures and perfect faces and effortless beauty Men fell at their feet They turned heads in the street They got everything they wanted.Which makes me and a lot of other readers out there, I d imagine hate them A good character is someone you can root for, someone who you can identify with I m sorry to say that most readers will not identify with these women And it s a real shame, because I think with a little relatability, they could have been really great heroines I hope that Duffy s future books have better protagonists.Of course, it wasn t all bad I finished it because I wanted to k...
