1. 'Wish Upon a Star' - Olivia Goldsmith
I don't even remember where I got this book, I just remember I was looking for a fun read and really liked the cover of 'Wish Upon a Star' and the blurb. It would eventually become one of my favourite chick lit novels of all time and the read that started my love for the genre!
2. 'If I Could Turn Back Time' - Beth Harbison
I actually reviewed this book quite recently and it's a book that wasn't sent to me for review, but one I just requested myself via NetGalley when I was looking for a nice summer holiday read. I did a quick search, liked the cover and description of this one and requested it.
3. 'Pictures of Lily' - Paige Toon
I remember I was on holiday in Wales when I found 'Pictures of Lily' in a supermarket for just 2 or 3 pounds, liked the sound of the book, and decided to buy it.
4. 'I Heart New York' - Lindsey Kelk
What happened with the Paige Toon book above is actually kind of the same story for my very first Lindsey Kelk read... I had no idea back then this was the start of an amazing book series, haha!
5. 'L.A. Candy' - Lauren Conrad
After watching shows on MTV with Lauren Conrad, I was quite surprised when I heard she had also written some books. I picked one up when I saw it in a shop one time and decided to give it a try.
6. 'The Pact' - Jodi Picoult
I had actually never heard of Jodi Picoult when I got this novel in a second-hand book shop. I was curious about the blurb and decided to give the book a chance. I've never really managed to become a fan of Jodi Picoult's work, though...
7. 'Little Vampire Women' - Lynn Messina
I'm still not completely sure what went on in my head when I decided to buy this book; I think it just has to do with the fact that I love 'Little Women' and am willing to give any adaptation of it a chance. However, I'm not a big vampire fan at all, so this book didn't really do anything for me!
8. 'Love Lives' - Josie Lloyd & Emlyn Rees
I remember I randomly picked this book from a shelf at my local library when I was 14 or 15, liking the front cover and being quite excited about reading it. I loved Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees novels and this was my very first experience with their writing.
9. 'The Nanny Diaries' - Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus
This book I picked up when I was in a book shop at a train station, looking for a new read after I had unexpectedly quite quickly finished the only book I had with me. It turned out to be quite a disappointing read in the end, still don't know why so many people loved this book...?
10. 'Going Home' - Harriet Evans
