REVIEW for Chasing Rainbows

Thank you to Poolbeg Press for sending me a copy of this great chick lit!

TITLE: Chasing Rainbows
AUTHOR: Nuala Woulfe

GENRE: Chick Lit

RATING: 4 Stars
Chasing Rainbows is English chick lit - which is always my favorite. Author Nuala Woulfe has written an absolutely funny, funny chick lit that rings true and realistic.
Granted, some of the terms were a little different and I needed to look some of them up - as I am more use to the Canadian/US terms, but this was a minor, minor little hiccup for me. The main character Ali is kind of ditzy, but in a fun and kind way and I absolutely loved all the supporting cast that surrounds her,
particularly her mother who added alot of the enjoyment in this storyline for me.
I also liked the sub-message in this book - keep looking for what it is that makes you truly happy - in other words, keep chasing rainbows and do not become disillusioned.
Chasing Rainbows manages to be both funny AND touching at the same time and is smart chick lit.

It sounds really great, Tina. I like the name of the publisher - Poolbeg Press. Haven't seen that one before!

I agree - British chick lit is the best!

This looks like a good read! I'll have to add it to my ever-growing reading list ; )

You might also really like a new book called 'Knickles and Dimes'. It has hilarious characters and a really great story. I'd recommend it!

Thanks for the review! : )
