    My thoughts Within the first few pages I noticed that this story seemed similar to the Confessions of a Shopaholic series I loved and adored that series, so I wasn t put off by it at all I think the first thing that struck me was the similarities between Becky Bloomwood and our heroine, Isabel Bookbinder They are both shallow, amusing and slightly annoying I mean that in the nicest of ways, because Isabel truly is a loveable characteralthough she doesn t seem to be the brightest crayon in My thoughts Within the first few pages I noticed that this story seemed similar to the Confessions of a Shopaholic series I loved and adored that series, so I wasn t put off by it at all I think the first thing that struck me was the similarities between Becky Bloomwood and our heroine, Isabel Bookbinder They are both shallow, amusing and slightly annoying I mean that in the nicest of ways, because Isabel truly is a loveable characteralthough she doesn t seem to be the brightest crayon in the box.Isabel has hopped from career to career and this novel is focused on her career as a wedding planner She is employed by a rather famous wedding planner, but after a hundred or so pages she manages to get herself fired It s one of those silly miscommunication not really her fault but it kinda is situations She sets out on her own as a wedding planner and through sheer luck and some ridiculous determination she lands a HUGE client and well,hilarity ensues.Although she has a gorgeous, successful lawyer boyfriend that she lives with, she often flirts with other guys and is thrown into some precarious situations involving other men I thought that her boyfriend was very patient and sweet I think their relationship and the crappy way she treated him was the only thing that irritated me in the book.I really enjoyed all the supporting characters in the story, Isabel s friends and family were all wonderfully written and I can t wait to readabout them I am hoping that there will be a fourth book, maybe somethihng to do with her own wedding or babies I never read books out of order, but I made an exception for this book It did well as a stand alone novel, but I am definitely going to be reading the first and second book of this series I actually bought the second book already, and now I just have to hunt down the first one.There has been a lack of good chick lit these past few years, so I am really excited I was introduced to this series This is classic chick lit, through and through Love Becky Bloomwood You ll LOVE Isabel Bookbinder

she s determined to make her career choice work and has decided to become a wedding planner Isabel manages to bag a job working for Pippa Everitt but after losing a couple of brides, she ends up losing her job Isabel isn t deterred and instead decides to start up her own wedding planning business Her first few clients include best friend Lara, who is marrying Matthew, Isabel s brother and Summer Shelley, an ex pop star who s determined to have a lavish bash But, with Isabel, life never runs smoothly the question is, can she manage to get her brides up the aisle without too many hitches I first heard about Holly McQueen s Isabel Bookbinder series when I saw it onI liked the sound of the synopsis for the first book The Glamorous Double Life of Isabel Bookbinder and I wanted to read it evenafter reading all the reviews onThey weren t nice and likened Isabel to everyone s favourite heroine Becky Bloomwood which is why I wanted to read the book I love Becky so I figured it would be interesting to see if thereviewers were correct and Isabel was indeed a carbon copy of Becky I managed to get a hold of the book and I actually loved it Yes, it was remarkably similar to Sophie Kinsella s Shopaholic series but I enjoyed it nevertheless I then picked up book two The Fabulously Fashionable Life of Isabel Bookbinder and I didn t think it was as good After reading the synopsis of Confetti Confidential, though, I decided I would buy the book because, believe it or not, I do like Isabel so I was looking forward to reading it.All of Holly McQueen s books seem to follow the same format for Isabel she comes up with a wacky new career she d like to try novelist, fashion designer and, now, wedding planner , she ends up getting herself a good job in each of those careers before messing it up spectacularly and deciding she ll just do it herself There may be some variations on that theme, but that s generally how the books go It works, don t get me wrong, although it is debatable just how believable it is that Isabel changes careers so often My main problem with the second Isabel Bookbinder book Fabulously Fashionable was that Isabel didn t seem to learn anything after everything that happened in book one Glamorous Double Life That s the only problem I had with the book and overall I did enjoy it.Confetti Confidential sees Isabel trying to become a wedding planner She manages to wangle herself a job with Pippa Everitt but it all goes inevitably wrong so she decides to set up her own wedding planning business called Isabel Bookbinder, Individual Weddings I have to admit I do admire Isabel s determination Despite not being a very good novelist, and not being able to stitch or anything, she does stick to her career choice until another one comes along, anyway Isabel is easily likeable, too A lot of people may use the term annoying rather like likeable but I personally like her She s sweet and the things she does aren t out of spite or anything but to try and help her friends and family Isabel does seem to have grown up a little bit and does recognize eventually how some of her ideas and full on ness might be misconstrued Isabel s family and best friend Lara play a huge part in all of the books and despite the fact that it seems Isabel s dad doesn t totally get her, they do seem like a nice family Finally we have Will, Isabel s boyfriend I like Will, but even after three books I still don t think we know him as well as we could and I wish he featured a bit .Confetti Confidential is fairly well written it s very similar to Sophie Kinsella s writing so it s easy to read and I did manage to fly through the book which has just over 500 pages One thing that is starting to get a little annoying is the many letters interviews Isabel conducts between some of the chapters They kind of break up the flow of the story, despite some of them being a bit amusing There are also some amusing parts throughout the book and Holly McQueen definitely writes some good comedy moments My main problem with Confetti Confidential though was how Isabel and Will s relationship progressed Or, rather, how it didn t progress You would think after two books we would be making good progress in the third but there wasn t much, not really Isabel does wonder if he might be about to propose, and Isabel does move back in, but as expected another man comes into the picture and it all goes back to square one It s frustrating because I personally believe that instead of throwing other men between Isabel and Will, we should instead see how their relationship moves on like Becky and Luke s in the Shopaholic series There s no need for man drama, because Isabel has enough drama with her job.There was a nice ending to Confetti Confidential, which rather paves the way for book four, should such a book be in the works and I will certainly buy it I do enjoy getting into Isabel s life because it s certainly full of colour and drama but I do wish there d beprogress made I d love to see Isabel stick with a job forthan one book and I d love it if Isabel and Will could make a bitprogress together Overall, it was a decent enough read and it certainly has readability It s a good series, don t get me wrong, but the two sequels so far haven t managed to live up to the fab first book

    What a fun, delightful, and charming book I was lucky enough to receive a copy from the publisher and experience my first foray into the world of Isabel Bookbinder though I will certainly be looking for the first two books and for any future Isabel is a cheerful go getter who has big ideas, but not necessarily the best execution Or, things happen to her that are simply and entirely out of her control either way, she manages to buck up and get matters straightened out Like Rebecca Bloomwoo What a fun, delightful, and charming book I was lucky enough to receive a copy from the publisher and experience my first foray into the world of Isabel Bookbinder though I will certainly be looking for the first two books and for any future Isabel is a cheerful go getter who has big ideas, but not necessarily the best execution Or, things happen to her that are simply and entirely out of her control either way, she manages to buck up and get matters straightened out Like Rebecca Bloomwood of the Shopaholic series, Isabel is prone to miscommunication, but her light heartedness and wholesomeness is what really makes her stand apart She seems to know what her boundaries are and her mistakes are often derived from her conscience calling out for correction when something is so very clearly wrong In Confetti Confidential Isabel ventures into the world of wedding planning, initially working for an uptight wedding planner who has very strict ideas and ambitions that greatly differ than Isabel s understanding of the wedding business As she strikes out on her own, Isabel meets a variety of people who help her figure out what it is she really wants and what she really excels at There is just enough depth to Isabel and her relationships with friends, family, and clients that you find yourself rooting for her and engrossed in her every day drama Often, I find myself removed from the characters, so I was very pleased to discover that Isabel was one who stuck with me, and from whom I wantedMcQueen s writing is very much in the vein of Sophie Kinsella s Shop a holic series, but in no way derivative or repetitive I enjoyed getting to know Isabel, and look forward tofrom McQueen All in all, it s a perfect book to pick up for some light reading

    Had a really tough time getting into this book, was bored out of my mind for quite a few chapters and it really didnt help that i found Isabel s childishly perky personality very annoying Almost all her problems stemmed from not thinking things through and just jumping blindly into anything and everything I get that there will be people that will love her optimistic personality but for me it was tiresome and cringe worthy So yeah there were funny bits but because of her being a clutz in a Had a really tough time getting into this book, was bored out of my mind for quite a few chapters and it really didnt help that i found Isabel s childishly perky personality very annoying Almost all her problems stemmed from not thinking things through and just jumping blindly into anything and everything I get that there will be people that will love her optimistic personality but for me it was tiresome and cringe worthy So yeah there were funny bits but because of her being a clutz in almost every aspect of her life it wasn t enjoyable So its pretty safe to say that even though i ve started with the last book, not going to search read for the previous ones

    What a welcome relief to read this book whilst the weather has been so up and down recently It took me a little longer than anticipated to read because adulthood kept getting in the way I absolutely love Isabel Bookbinders character She reminds me a little of Bridet Jones.I laughed quite a lot reading this book and once i woke the hubby up from his snoring laughing Ooops

    Not bad, easy read Takes a while to really get going and the ending felt a rushed, but it was good.

    More two and a half stars than three, and I m kind.I didn t read the first two books of the Isabel Bookbinder series in fact, I pretty much picked up this one because it was only five bucks and I was in the need of a book to read during a long travel with the train.Of course, it s chick lit, so if you re not into that kind of novels, you will surely find yourself bored by it I do appreciate a nice chick lit from time to time when I need to clear my mind, but it has to be written fairly good a More two and a half stars than three, and I m kind.I didn t read the first two books of the Isabel Bookbinder series in fact, I pretty much picked up this one because it was only five bucks and I was in the need of a book to read during a long travel with the train.Of course, it s chick lit, so if you re not into that kind of novels, you will surely find yourself bored by it I do appreciate a nice chick lit from time to time when I need to clear my mind, but it has to be written fairly good and mostly has to have a protagonist which I like and may identify myself with to a certain point This, however, was not the case with this book While it s not badly written, Isabel itself just didn t enthusiasm or even entertain me and I often found myself thinking that she acts strange and in a really weird way She changes her mind frequently, but doesn t seem to know or at least I didn t got the reasons why What bothered me most was that so many plots and storylines were built and then, all of the sudden, brought to a very quick end in the last few pages Dan anyone Was this seriously the end with him And the reason why Isabel s Mom made such a secret around her visit was simply that she went to the doctor for John I feel like there was potential for a lotand maybe too many different storylines.Apart from that, the book wasn t actually this bad it s light lecture, easy to read in a sitting and ideal to have a break when you don t feel like doing something that requires much concentration Overall, I don t regret bying it because it was on sale but I wouldn t pay the full prize for it
