    Ik besluit er toch maar mee te stoppen Welgeteld zes verhaaltjes heb ik gelezen En geen enkel verhaaltje had ook maar iets te maken met de exotische plaatsen waar ze zich zouden afspelen Het had net zo goed in mijn eigen woonplaats bij de buren in de achtertuin kunnen gebeuren Bijvoorbeeld de mooie romance op de Kaaiman eilanden Geen enkel woord wordt er gesproken over de omgeving of de natuur of wat dan ook Dat is nou juist waarom ik dit boek lees Omdat ik van tropische bestemmingen houd Ik besluit er toch maar mee te stoppen Welgeteld zes verhaaltjes heb ik gelezen En geen enkel verhaaltje had ook maar iets te maken met de exotische plaatsen waar ze zich zouden afspelen Het had net zo goed in mijn eigen woonplaats bij de buren in de achtertuin kunnen gebeuren Bijvoorbeeld de mooie romance op de Kaaiman eilanden Geen enkel woord wordt er gesproken over de omgeving of de natuur of wat dan ook Dat is nou juist waarom ik dit boek lees Omdat ik van tropische bestemmingen houd en er in dit boek een heleboel zaten Ik kan hier niet tevreden mee worden gesteld De verhalen waren allemaal enorm laf, totaal niet romantisch en slecht afgewerkt Ik had 15 jaar geleden nog een betere short story kunnen schrijven Wat een enorme bummer

    When my parents went off on a two week holiday to Italy without me, major jealousy issues ensued However after having read Sunlounger , when I received their postcard from Sorrento, Italy , I could only laugh and think, Oh, I ve been there, and to Ibiza, Turkey, Australia, Greece, Spain, Cairo, Argentina, Paris, Mexico, Marrikesh, Mauritus, Jamaica, Thailand, Brazil, Cambodia, Iceland, Russia, Dubai and Mallorca So there This was a wonderful collection of stories to read, and I absolutely When my parents went off on a two week holiday to Italy without me, major jealousy issues ensued However after having read Sunlounger , when I received their postcard from Sorrento, Italy , I could only laugh and think, Oh, I ve been there, and to Ibiza, Turkey, Australia, Greece, Spain, Cairo, Argentina, Paris, Mexico, Marrikesh, Mauritus, Jamaica, Thailand, Brazil, Cambodia, Iceland, Russia, Dubai and Mallorca So there This was a wonderful collection of stories to read, and I absolutely loved each one There were those that were downright hilarious, so hilarious that I literally cackled like a lunatic whilst reading on the bus There were those that were shockingly sad and emotional, those that made me cry, those that gave me a warm glow and those that made me think Wow.But most of all, every single story made me think I would love to go there I loved how all the writers approached the holiday prompt and had the story give a different message For example, some of the stories were romantic comedies, but all spoke to the reader in a different way.All the stories brilliantly depicted the cultural barriers that travellers face when in a different country for the first time One that really resonated with me in this way was Carrie Duffy s At First Sight Holiday Destination Dubai where an interior designer, married to her work, is ushered into a shop of robes and experiences a glimpse of the life of a Dubai women, where she is covered head to toe with only her eyes on display It was a brilliant story that showed just how different life is in different cultures A man in Dubai may have to fall in love with a woman after a glimpse of her eyes, whereas in Western cultures, there tends to be a focus on entire body image.Kate Guest s Hanoi Jane Holiday Destination Vietnam was great fun as we see character Jane defy the health laws of the country and skip out on her very own adventure with American Toby It was both hilarious and dealt with serious issues I loved it Two stories that particularly express the dangers of travelling to other countries were Kate Harrison s Holiday Reading Holiday Destination Barcelona, Spain , where we see the dangers of women being prey to muggers, and Wendy Rigg s From Elvissa With Love Holiday Destination Ibiza story which describes the dangers of young girls travelling alone, being captured and forced into illegal activities in order to gain their freedom Sadly these are real issues that face travellers today, and I liked how these stories subtly expressed these warnings without forcing the information on you.Rosie Blake s story Ice, Ice Baby Holiday Destination Iceland had me in fits of laughter throughout, starting with realistic glimpses of the everyday life of a couple, with them greeting each other in the morning with grunts, yet how despite their petty arguments, are still in love and can be incredibly romantic.Valerie Anne Baglietto s heartbreaking story Genie of the Rock Holiday Destination Gibraltar tells the tale of a young recently widowed woman having a miracle happen really touched me, with an added element of fantasy that wasn t too overpowering gave a wonderful balance to the story Despite this being the second story of the forty one in the book, this story stayed with me right till the end.The award for story that had me most intrigued, and wishing for a whole novel devoted to the story, was Margaret James story The Anniversary Holiday Destination Tuscany, Italy I loved the mystery infused within the story and how the reader is left guessing and pondering over what exactly happened Who was the man and why was the woman his project and why and how did the events happen the same day every year, and what was the woman s accident she mentioned It was a brilliant mysterious and heart wrenching story that I adored I am a sucker for friends turned lovers stories, and loved Pernille Hughes Fia McQueen s Great Escape Holiday Destination Mauritius where we see a young girl Fia grieving over being jilted by her fianc , and is brought back to life by her closest friend Simon It was a funny, touching and heart warming story.And not all of the stories had happy ever afters I really connected to some of the deep emotional stories where I could feel the writer s pain as I read, as though they had literally poured their soul into their characters Love at First Kiss by Lisa Heidki Holiday Destination Venice, Italy Sydney, Australia was a moving story about a woman pining after a man who she kissed in Venice Seeing her unable to move on and live in the present was sad, and although there was no romantic reunion at the end of the story, I rejoiced to see the heroine realise that she needed to find a better place for herself A stunning piece of writing.Holly Martins One Hundred Proposals Holiday Destination Australia was a fantastic addition to the book, which makes the reader really think about what they themselves want What is the Perfect Proposal And what makes it perfect A brilliant story And what better way to send off the readers than with Tiffany Wright s work of art Signs from Sydney Holiday Destination Sydney, Australia A brilliant journey of self discovery with the greatest twist at the end that had me swooning and squealing in equal measure Sunlounger has taken me on my very own holiday this year, and has made me laugh, cry, ponder life, and rethink romantic displays of affection I m so climbing a tree to get a lime for a guy s beer one day Just to see the look on his face I wish I could talk about every story in detail because I loved them all so much, like Nicola Moriarty s The Red Glove Holiday Destination Australia and Miranda Dickinson s Midnight in St Petersburg Holiday Destination St Petersburg, Russia but I ll just give a mention to every other author who contributed, as I loved every single one of these stories 5 Stars, and a definite recommended read

    When I was chatting to Belinda on Twitter and she offered me a copy of Sunlounger to review, I jumped at the chance I was going away and what could beperfect than read stories set abroad All I can say is that Belinda Jones I am so sorry it has taken me so long to review, why Well I didn t want the fabulous collection of short stories to end so I have been stringing them out Sorry Well what can I say This is a brilliant book which contains many well established authors and some not so When I was chatting to Belinda on Twitter and she offered me a copy of Sunlounger to review, I jumped at the chance I was going away and what could beperfect than read stories set abroad All I can say is that Belinda Jones I am so sorry it has taken me so long to review, why Well I didn t want the fabulous collection of short stories to end so I have been stringing them out Sorry Well what can I say This is a brilliant book which contains many well established authors and some not so which have written short stories based in different destinations across the world Yes there are some a lot better than others, but this is expected in a collection book What I love about it is that you can get a quick reading fix of a whole story in a short amount of time and feel you have accomplished reading a whole book What else I love about short story collections is that I regularly come across authors I have not read before This happened on this occasion I read a short story by Katie Agnew set in St Barts and absolutely loved it I then went out and bought her story Too Hot to Handle on the strength of reading that short story So thank you Belinda Jones for introducing me to her I find it really hard to write a review for a book of short stories as I find it unnecessary to go through each story, I feel that you have just got to read it to see how good it is I didn t finish the collection while I was away, I savored it and treated myself to a short story over a few nights, this helped me get away for my busy life and just dream about being away on a beach somewhere, or troweling through a busy souk looking for a bargain under the sun This is a short story collection that I would recommend everyone to own It is brilliant, it just makes me happy thinking about it Thank you so much Belinda Jones for making this book happen and offering it to me to review I do hope this is continued perhaps a Christmas collection I would like to thank Belinda Jones for sending me this copy to review For this reviews and others please visit Mrsbbooks2011.blogspot.co.uk

    Un risotto di racconti che nel complesso risulta piuttosto deludente L idea di mettere assieme ben 32 racconti di altrettante autrici poteva essere interessante, ma sulla carta il risultato a mio parere piuttosto fallimentare Da una parte le storie sono ripetitive e ridondanti buona parte racconta di quasi trentenni inglesi alla ricerca del vero a o comunque del vero a finch dura e ne viene fuori un ritratto un poco desolante di troppi alcolici, poca soddisfazione e sesso occas Un risotto di racconti che nel complesso risulta piuttosto deludente L idea di mettere assieme ben 32 racconti di altrettante autrici poteva essere interessante, ma sulla carta il risultato a mio parere piuttosto fallimentare Da una parte le storie sono ripetitive e ridondanti buona parte racconta di quasi trentenni inglesi alla ricerca del vero a o comunque del vero a finch dura e ne viene fuori un ritratto un poco desolante di troppi alcolici, poca soddisfazione e sesso occasionale , dall altra lo spazio che ciascuna autrice ha troppo poco per una vera costruzione del racconto e dei personaggi.Tutte le storie sono comunque conclusive e ce ne sono un paio quelle con un tocco di giallo che mi sono piaciute abbastanza Il resto naviga nella media di una sufficienza risicata.Va bene da leggere in spiaggia o la sera, prima di andare a nanna, visto che ogni racconto davvero breve breve

    I don t usually like story collections but when I saw this for 99p and saw the stories were by some of my favourite authors, I decided to give it a go I am so glad I did, because it was great The stories were great and some of my favourite s were from unknown writers I would definitely recommend this book.

    An enjoyable collection of short stories, each set in a different destination A good book to pick up and put down at any time and a great way to be introduced to authors I had not tried before.I enjoyed some storiesthan others, particular favourites were The Venice Trap by Victoria Fox and the hilarious Pack Up Your Troubles by Chrissie Manby.
