    Beginner's Luck: A Brooklyn Girls Novel By Gemma Burgess


    2.5 starsBrooklyn Girls was in my eyes a fresh book in a new series which could deliver something different However I had far too many hang ups that resulted in Brooklyn Girls not leaving the greatest impression with me.Pia has messed up big time, a photo of her topless and drinking was uploaded to Facebook and now her agency has dropped her Her parents then rock up with an ultimatum she has eight weeks to sort her life out, otherwise she will be forced to leave Brooklyn and come and stay with t [...]

    Brooklyn Girls was utterly disappointing to me If this is what the recently established New Adult genre is like it is clearly not for me It almost seems as if the novel is written by a teenager who thinks that they know what it is like to be an adult that is to say, they got it very, very wrong Main character Pia was over dramatic and highly annoying, even so than the average teenager, and the storyline was so over the top and ridiculous at times that I just couldn t take it or Pia seriously Ad [...]

    Fantastically funny, fresh and utterly relatable, Brooklyn Girls by Gemma Burgess is the first novel in her brand new series about five twenty something friends Pia, Angie, Julia, Coco and Madeleine sharing a brownstone in hip, downtown Brooklyn, and discovering the ups and downs and ins and outs of their semi adult lives I love Gemma Burgess she has become my new writer friend in my mind She reminds me of Sophie Kinsella and that is a VERY good thing I love New York so this book already got bon [...]

    This is what New Adult is supposed to be I have to be honest, I really have had trouble with the actual definition of New Adult because it just sounds like a weird genre to fill in the hole between Young Adult and melodramatic, bodice ripper romances And really, why on Earth would that hole even exist And so I was confused for a long while about what New Adult was, other than Young Adult with sex And Brooklyn Girls gave me an answer that, thankfully, wasn t oh, it s just sex AND drugs Because [...]

    I really enjoyed this book I mean, obviously Five stars and all It has the wit and heart I expect from Gemma Burgess and that includes engaging characters who are fully realized and who do their best to fit into each others lives despite the bumps and bruises along the way.I really enjoyed Pia, though I think Burgess had to pull a bit of a fast one to put her in the trouble she was in through much of the book Even someone math challenged and na ve shouldn t have been quite so blas , I suppose, [...]

    Please don t start this book and think it s about another spoiled, rich, ditzy air head with no pride Because where you may think that, sooo not the case Pia is such a strong character who is finally learning who she is and the fact that she is a strong woman and what her family and exboyfriends say is not true She seems like a girl that we can all relate to, she stumbles, she makes some stupid decisions, but she get s her act together and makes something of herself while building and repairing [...]

    Witless garbage As a girl who s lived in Manhattan for 10 years and Brooklyn for 5, I can tell you Burgess has no understanding of Brooklyn, girls, or, for that matter, America.

    Gemme Burgess sa pod a m a ani z aleka nedost va to ko uznania, ako by si zasl ila To je v etko, o som k tomu chcela poveda.

    At about 22% of reading this novel, I was all ready to shelve this on my DNF list but I thought of taking a short break and decided to go on with it and I m sure glad I did because after clearing my head a bit, the whole thing finally picked up after that annoyingly stupid decision from the main character.You see, Pia s a 22 year old newly graduate from Brown who lives with four other friends in Brooklyn and is used to partying, casual sex, drugs and just doing whatever she wanted to do until he [...]

    ARC was provided by Publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I am kinda conflicted as to what I should rate this Because it not 4 stars for sure, but it was extremely entertaining Too entertaining for 3 stars then again I don t think it s quite 3.5 after long ups and downs.I settled for 3 It s a VERY good 3 And I think for lover of this genre, they will actually rate it much higher than I did I had a few issues with the story line and some of the character building.At first [...]

    On the plus side, I was interested enough in this that I read this all in one sitting minus a couple of breaks for things like fixing my mom s floss container for her On the negative side, I called the main character an idiot a lot.On the plus side, this is much than kind of new adult book I d like to see That time after college graduation, when you just have no idea what you re doing and everything feels like a mess and not at all like you thought it would be On the negative side, it made me f [...]

    I loved this book so hard I couldn t put it down for anything I am so in love with all the characters and was cheering them on through every page Pia and her friends are amazing people and I couldn t stop wanting to have the chance to be their friend in real life Plus, the profanity usage in this book is so ridiculously fluent and poetic, I walked away feeling slightly awesome than I actually am.

    For a while there, I thought this was heading towards a DNF But eventually the story picked up once the bratty main character started showing some promise and I quite enjoyed her storyline, though things got resolved a bit too easily My favourite parts were Pia s group of girlfriends, and her endeavours with starting a food truck business.

    Truth be told, when I first saw Gemma Burgess is writing a new adult novel, I ll admit I was kind of not happy about it A Girl Like You is one of my absolute favorites but I read a lot of NA genre and the books are hitmiss.Anywhoo, I shouldn t have worried, because the author didn t write your typical NA The first book in the Brooklyn Girls series is a true coming of age story with a chick litty feel so if you re a fan of those, you should definitely read it.On the other hand, if you want hardco [...]

    I d been hearing a lot of buzz and excitement around Brooklyn Girls before it was released, so I know it was eagerly anticipated, and although I had never read a book by Gemma Burgess before, I was very excited about starting it This is one of those books where you can t just read a few pages and put it down you just NEED to know what is going to happen next I was completely hooked from the first page and it was a story that I did not want to be parted from I finished the entire book in a day be [...]

    Hmmmmm no fue taaaan malo, pero tampoco fue algo para recordar Predecible, inmaduro e il gico algunas veces Lo que lo salv del 1 5 fue que me sent un poco identificada con la situaci n de Pia reci n graduada, sin trabajo y sin futuro just like me D Adem s me gust que fuera TAAAAAAN diferente a todo lo que hay en el g nero New Adult ahora De vdd, ya estaba cansada de tantos wannabes de Travis Maddox y tanta chica buena, rica y virgen que se enamora de chico malo, bla, bla, bla inserte aqu toda la [...]

    Finally, a book about twenty somethings who aren t solely motivated by the pursuit of men, though there are a few tossed in just to be real Showing exactly how confusing it is to suddenly be considered as an adult when you may not feel or even be ready for that responsibility, Brooklyn Girls follows roommates as they struggle with money woes, the conundrum of not getting hired because you don t have the experience in the field yet or worse, taking jobs that are just entirely wrong and then tryin [...]

    I gave this book a fair chance and to be honest with you I had no idea what it was about nor did it look like my kind of read but after about 100 pages or so I gave up There is just I don t know something lacking in this book.While I usually enjoy stories with the whole friends in the big city kind of thing, where a lot of crazy things happen, but unfortunately I just can t get into this book whatsoever so I m not going to finish it sadly Still, I think many people may like this book despite w [...]

    I grew so tired of the getting high, getting drunk, flipping off bosses, no regard for their jobs, lifestyle The story was so far from the circumstances of reality, it should have its own genre of narcissistic fantasy I read the whole thing because I was waiting for the actual shoe of reality to drop It seems the author was trying to create a SITC world, but in Brooklyn The characters, however are pathetic and they don t have individual traits at all The setting in Brooklyn is so limited, it s f [...]

    Actual rating 4.5Well, colour me surprised This was actually surprisingly cool and entertaining After the first few pages I was like ugghhh what kind of annoying main character is this But she remedies herself and I loved the whole plotline involving food trucks Loved it Also, Brooklyn.I d love to continue this series

    Wat een fijn boek Las heerlijk weg, superleuk en origineel verhaal Heb enorm gelachen, maar ook mooi hoe de herkenbare ontwikkeling van de personages erin naar voren komt Soms wel wat voorspelbaar of overdreven, maar dat stoorde niet.

    I picked up Brooklyn Girls on a whim I saw it mentioned in a few peoples Waiting on Wednesdays one week, noticed that it was available through Netgalley, and just decided to request a copy As much as I adore reading YA books, sometimes it s nice to read about characters slightly older than teens, characters that I can actually relate to in my life right now I knew Brooklyn Girls was about a group of recent college grads living in Brooklyn and trying to figure out what they want from their lives [...]

    Un meh bien s lido No me gusta esa etiqueta de chick lit la mayor a de los ep tetos para la literatura escrita por mujeres y o para mujeres tiene cierto eco despectivo , pero Chicas de Brooklyn es una novela que abraza las peores cualidades de la etiqueta oscila entre lo gen rico y lo estereot pico y tropieza continuamente con su propio ethos hasta convertirse en un amasijo narrativo sin rasgo distinguible alguno Sus nicas ra ces parecen ser la juventud y lo femenino, y esto ltimo no es m s que [...]
