This is a review of the 2006 book "If I were you" by Julia Llewellyn. I picked up this book on readitswapit website swapping a book with a fellow member. A bit about the story The book focuses on the friendship between Natasha and Sophie, who met at school and continue to be friends in their thirties, both living in London. They are both really different types of people, and there's a bit of healthy rivalry between them to be successful in life with men and relationships and careers. Basically each of them wants what the other's got - or seems to have. This doesn't get in the way of what is essentially a great ... Read the complete review

Although I used to be a great reader of a wide variety of different books at school, as I have got older my reading tastes have become much more limited and nowadays chick lit makes up about 80% of my bookshelf. With this in mind, 'If I were you' seemed to fit this genre perfectly and after reading the book over 3 days I wasn't disappointed.

On the back cover the paperback book is priced at £6.99, although on Amazon you can get it for £5.99, or even cheaper if you ... Read the complete review

There aren't many books in this world that really inspire me, but this book did in so many ways! It is way more than a 'chick book'. The story is based on two characters, Natasha and Sophie. Both girls are so different, with Natasha who has an established and successful career working for 'Rollercoaster TV' and Sophie who is in a dead end relationship dreaming of life as a perfect housewife. Both characters are secretly envious of each others lives and this causes an akward friction in storylines between them both which ends when they end up reversing roles. I think the story is so successful as women of all ages and backgrounds can relate to one of ... Read the complete review
