George burgess datinginspiration for sass's career has obviously came from gemma herself who worked as a copywriter in advertising in london. gemma burgess makes dating life fun and laughable, which it is. i'm sad this might be gemma's last book, genuinely sad, but it was an amazing send off, and maybe i'll just have to re-read a girl like you every year and pretend i've never read it before. burgess has firmly established her hold on to my personal queen of chiclit throne. it kicks ass, it slaps other chick lit round the face and says 'eat that', because quite frankly, burgess has got sass (please excuse the terrible pun on the protagonist's name) and style and a wit that tastes like a dirty martini and warms like a hug from a good friend. on a night out with her friend bloomie, sass decides to begin the dating detox. ever since the dating detox came out, and a girl like you remains one of my absolute favourite chick lit books. i like the fact that gemma burgess doesn't make everythin.
Paige Toon Book family tree | Books *---* | Pinterest | Trees, Bookbut you will see gemma on tv screens soon, as she's writing a tv show which is freaking amazing, but i want another book. we learn early on about sass’s six break-ups which have caused her to start her detox and they were equally amusing and cringe-worthy in the way in which they happened. on a night out with her friend bloomie, sass decides to begin the dating detox. i might have mentioned before that london is one of my favourite places so that really appealed to me; however gemma knows new york inside out, where, i later discovered, she lives, which made it easy to picture when i was reading it.!gemma burgess is hands down my fav chiclit author, i've read all her books so far and loved all of them so aghhhh get in my haaaands! it lived up to all my expectations of a burgess novel: it was funny and heart-warming, unerringly relatable and wonderfully poignant. writing style was similar to the other book i’ve read from burgess, which was a plus. i like the fact that gemma burgess doesn't make everything all clouds and unicorns, which is realistic.
well i don't know about the nyc part but i do know that gemma burgess hit it on the nail with her characters. for those who love caitlin moran and lena dunham, you'd love gemma too. :pdating detox is not what i'd call an epic book nor something i'd refer to as an epic fail. i was immediately sucked into sass’s world and i thought gemma tapped into the mind of a twenty-something serial dater pretty well. *sad face*i got into coco as soon as i started it, coco is just ultimately likeable, and completely different to gemma's other heroines, usually they're way more badass right from the off, but coco was sweet, innocent, naive; until she decided to go a bit mad, have a bit of a wild time, as she tried to figure out her life, and why not?! gemma burgess is officially on my list of authors to watch out for. will sass be able to abide by the dating detox for three whole months? burgess' the wild one: a brooklyn girls novel is the inspiring story about the turmoil, uncertainty, and heartache that every twenty something faces and survives - with the help of her friends.
this is totally one author to look out for in the future and i'll definitely be reading more of gemma burgess's amusing takes on relationships that's for sure. dating detox first came to my attention a while back when it was due to be released under the title of the dating sabbatical. burgess is, essentially, the kind of author i worship blindly.'ve been a big fan of gemma burgess since i picked up a girl like you a few years ago, so i was eagerly anticipating the newest addition to her brooklyn girls' series, the wild one. in gemma’s stories not everyone has life all figured out; her characters struggle with love, jobs, friends, and just life in general. needed something light and fun to read and the dating detox fitted that bill perfectly. but burgess handled everything beautifully with a climax that flowed so well and naturally that tears actually flowed (yeah, that isn't that great an accomplishment with me). i dream that sometime in the future gemma gets back to this story and writes more, maybe about girls in their late twenties.
