WAGs at the World Cup – Alison Kervin

Acquired: Won on Goodreads (thanks!)

Published: May 27th 2010, Ebury Press

Summary: Forget Victoria Beckham. Forget Coleen. You can even forget Cheryl Cole...Tracie Martin is the true queen of the Wags. From her lemon-frosted highlights to the tips of her bejewelled bronzed toes, Tracie is the ultimate footballer's wife and this is going to be her year.

The England squad are heading to South Africa for the World Cup and Tracie's husband Dean has a place on the coaching squad. So the Martin family are on their way to South Africa ...And while the fight may be on for England to regain their rightful place in the history books, Tracie knows that the true battle of the tournament will be fought in Gucci and in the pages of her favourite tabloids. But that's before she discovers that an international crime syndicate is trying to fix the world cup. Can Tracie save the day?

Pretty Little Liars – Sara Shepard

Acquired: Purchased myself (and love the pilot episode of the TV show, by the way!)

Published: October 2006, Harper Teen

Summary: Everyone has something to hide—especially high school juniors Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna.

Spencer covets her sister's boyfriend. Aria's fantasizing about her English teacher. Emily's crushing on the new girl at school. Hanna uses some ugly tricks to stay beautiful.

But they've all kept an even bigger secret since their friend Alison vanished.

How do I know? Because I know everything about the bad girls they were, the naughty girls they are, and all the dirty secrets they've kept. And guess what? I'm telling.

Flawless – Sara Shepard

Acquired: Purchased myself

Published: March 2007, Harper Teen

Summary: Spencer stole her sister's boyfriend. Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher. Emily likes her new friend Maya . . . as much more than a friend. Hanna's obsession with looking flawless is making her sick. And their most horrible secret yet is so scandalous that the truth would ruin them forever.

And why shouldn't I tell? They deserve to lose it all. With every crumpled note, wicked IM, and vindictive text message I send, I'll be taking these pretty little liars down. Trust me, I've got enough dirt to bury them alive.

Della says: OMG! – Keris Stainton

Acquired: Purchased myself

Published: May 6th 2010, Orchard

Summary: Della’s over the moon when she kisses her long-standing crush at a party – but then she discovers her diary has disappeared...

When scans of embarrassing pages are sent to her mobile and appear on Facebook, Della’s distraught – how can she enjoy her first proper romance when someone, somewhere, knows all her deepest, darkest secrets?


Confetti Girl – Diana Lopez

Acquired: Sent by Little, Brown

Published: June 1st 2009, Little, Brown

Summary: Apolonia "Lina" Flores is a sock enthusiast, a volleyball player, a science lover, and a girl who's just looking for answers. Even though her house is crammed full of books (her dad's a bibliophile), she's having trouble figuring out some very big questions, like why her dad seems to care about books more than her, why her best friend's divorced mom is obsessed with making cascarones (hollowed eggshells filled with colorful confetti), and, most of all, why her mom died last year. Like colors in a cascarone, Lina's life is a rainbow of people, interests, and unexpected changes.


Twenty Boy Summer – Sarah Ockler

Acquired: Sent by Little, Brown

Published: June 1st 2009, Little, Brown

Summary: According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy every day, there's a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there's something she hasn't told Frankie---she's already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie's older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.


Star Crossed – Jo Cotterill

Acquired: Sent by Random House

Published: May 27th, Random House

Summary: Fliss isn’t exactly outgoing. But on stage she really comes alive. And this summer she’s playing Juliet opposite her dream Romeo – Tom Mayerling. If only she could tell him how she feels!

But unless Fliss finds some inner confidence, she’s going to miss her chance with Tom. Because someone else has her eyes on Fliss’ role – and her leading man...
