Synopsis

The Make-Up Girl by Andrea Semple

Hi. My name's Faith and I'm living the London dream. I work in a fabulous PR company, have tons of thin, glamorous friends (not quite as glamorous as I am, obv) and especially I have the perfect, handsome boyfriend. He never wants to watch the football. He never gets drunk. And he always prefers a quiet night in to going out with his mates. The only problem is that, well, he doesn't exist. I made him up, just like I made up my perfect life and my perfect job. It's what I do, you see, I'm a make-up girl in Keats cosmetics. I have a scary mother and one thing just led to another - it was easier not to tell her the depressing truth. The thing is, I also have a sister and she's just got engaged...

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Ann Quintilla

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
