    One thought on “How To Be A Literary Genius”

    1. I have to admit that I read 'How to be a Literary Genius' because Jacqui is an old friend and I was curious to read her latest novel. Then, I found myself abandoning my emails on the tube for it and tucking myself up early in bed with it. It is definitely a read to relish - pure pleasure.

    2. Let me start by saying that anything remotely like Chick Lit isn't my genre of choice. That said, HTBALG is mostly set in London, just up the road from where I used to live and I quite fancy becoming a literary genius if the offer is there, so I thought I'd give this a tryAs it turns out, this isn't a 'how to' book at all - the title refers to a super-successful 'how to' book in the story - but does instead weave through the dreams and pitfalls of trying to become a successful, or even unsuccess [...]

As Jacqui has helped lots of to authors start and finish writing novels and given the title, I suspected that this might have that angle, well, it wasn't. It was delightful, really readable and very enjoyable. Mostly I read in bed at night, grabbing a few pages before switching off the light, any book that is carried beyond t [...]

    5. A really good fun read. As I started reading it, I put it in the category of chick lit and groaned as not my kind of thing. But as I read it, quickly, the characters grew on me and I realised there was a bit more than your bog standard offering of the genre.Loved the obnoxious Loftus, bony Phyllis and the whole notion of reality TV which was a great way to bring it to a close.All in all, definitely worth a read and I will now look up some more of the author's works.
