I found this book to be an easy read; finished in a week on the bus to/from work. The relationship between Stella and her mother was a bit much - typical stage mom syndrome with guilt tendencies thrown in for good measure. I also found the relationship between the upstairs neighbor, Christian, and Stella to be over the top. This made me flashback to my times when I was trying to "make it" in the world of acting. Thank goodness I gave up and decided to keep it within the community theatre world! At first I felt sorry for Stella and then I became a bit pissed off because of her past relationships. Sometimes "chick lit" does that to me but having an affair with a married man with a pregnant wife? And then getting pissed because he's getting married to the woman he was cheating on both his wife AND Stella was a bit much. As I said, it was an easy read. Do not be fooled. Miss Bubbles is the MAIN character of this story. I would've rather have read a book about that!
I haven't quite finished it yet, but I am finding it almost impossible to put this book down. I LOVE it! Hopefully it will end well. I'm pretty confident how it will end, but the journey is thrilling!
This book is very funny chic lit, I really liked Stella, the main character. You really find yourself rooting for her and her acting career.
You will fall in Love with Miss Bubbles.
Cute, light, fun. The cat is more mature than her mistress.
Sweet, quick read. I don't normally read too much in this genre but couldn't resist the cover and the cat. Worth a read if you like this genre or like to read about aspiring actresses.
Great Red Dress Ink book, but then, I love animal stories!
Cute chick lit! Read in one night!
I really liked this book but it got a bit frustrating at times.
Although to me it did seem a bit unreal at times also.
It's like the "big break" fairy knocked and I wasn't home!
But my roommate was-he's up for a role on All My Children. And Miss
Bubbles, my adorable and absurdly intelligent longhaired Persian, can now buy her own Fancy Feast-she's starring in a prestigious off-Broadway play, opposite the man of my dreams. What's going on here? I mean, hello, my name is Stella-it means star! Clearly I'm the one who's destined for divadom. I was just about to start really going for it, too: no more wasting time with good-for-nothing boyfriends, chocolate-martini hangovers and Oprah marathons. Just success! that was before my cat got her own dressing room and I landed the supporting role of stage mom. You know, a lesser girl might have contemplated hanging up her head shot.
But not me. I'm determined to snag myself a lead role...and while I'm at it, the leading man.
