The Making of Mia - Ilana Fox ... exactly fit in at the uber-chic office. Her boss humiliates her; her colleagues bitch about her; even the receptionist ignores her. At first, Jo's not sure why - is it her hair, her figure, her clothes? Then she realises it's pretty much all of the above and that she'll never be like the sleek, glamorous girls flitting round the office in their Sass & Bide jeans and Gucci mules. Or will she? Jo might be overweight and overlooked, but she's different in other ways too. She's bright, ambitious and smart, and what's more, she has a plan. Reduced to tears for the umpteenth time by her boss - the gorgeous but vicious magazine publisher Joshua Garnet - Jo knows it's time for drastic action. She's had it with magazines and knows that 'discovering a whole new you' takes more than a manicure and a new MAC blusher. Jo's going to give herself the ultimate make-over and by the time she's finished, the magazine world - and Joshua - won't know what's hit them.

The Gathering - Anne Enright - beautifully written, has staying power grim, not much happens, unlikeable narrator
The Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follett - Good historical detail Too long, villains a bit pantomime, didn't always feel believable
The Road to Mars - Eric Idle - Some revealing, insightful and downright absurd reflections of comedy from a real veteran. The main plot seems like filler, and the characters disappointingly lack realism.
The Single Girl's To-Do List - Lindsey Kelk - Funny, well written, enjoyable Predictable, chick lit by numbers really
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake - Aimee Bender - Very unusual story. Makes you think. Puzzling.
