original title
My Cup Runneth Over: The Life of Angelica Cookson Potts
Angelica Cookson Potts has the most divine life: Divine friends. Divine family. Divine housekeeper (who makes the most looovely custard tarts). True, her friends can be so perfect it hurts, and her mother is an annoyingly skinny ex-model type. But they are all so delightful that Angel forgives them their "perfections."What is "not" so delightful is that Angel feels like a big wobbly whale whenever she is around said friends, family, and custard-tart creator. And with the school fashion show quickly approaching, Angel is determined to make Life Changes by starting a healthy new diet -- sans tarts.
Adam, the school hottie, is sure to be at the show. If Angel can just get Adam to notice her, she knows he'll fall hopelessly, madly, totally in love. And he'll realize that there's more to Angelica Cookson Potts than her delightful friends, family, and custard tarts. In fact, Angel is rather divine herself 

My Review
My favorite part about this book, the recipies that it gave me because cooking is a huge passion of mine which is probably why I could actually relate to the character Angel. It felt similar to many of the other teenage style books that are out there, simplistic and easy to read, something that challenges the reader to think about the way that we look at ourselves and how we see everything else that is going on around us. I felt that there was a comedy effect to the piece that was just different in many ways because it did kind of pull you in. I like books that seem to be talking to the reader rather than just something you read because it allows you to feel that you are a part of the novel, that you are actually there and that you can live it. this does make the book that little bit more exciting but at the same time it is still a little predictable because you kind of knew what was going to occur.
I loved the power of the book and do think its the sort of book you want to pass on to your teenage daughter to read, because it makes you think about what life is about, looks, food, or just enjoying yourself and living life to the max. it was simple but had a lot to say none the less and I do think its just a nice easy book to read and relax with.

didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it it was amazing

  1. Hahaha...I thought I was the only person who had read this book!

    I completely agree with your review! It is a very simple read. Definitely not as thought-provoking as most books out there now. And the recipes? YESSS!!! :D
