Jonathan Unleashed, by Meg Rosoff
My dog knows stuff! I am pretty sure now that behind those puppy eyes she is hiding a whole lot more about life that I will ever understand. Maybe Confucius was right by saying that life is really simple, but somehow we insist on making it complicated. And every time I look at my dog I know that she knows that I know I don’t really know what to be when I grow up, or even how on earth to get there.

The Trouble With Emma, by Katie Oliver
I’m one of those people who believes that characters belong to their creators, I don’t wanna see Anna Karenina strolling around Piccadilly Circus or Elizabeth Bennet clubbing in the Big Apple.
That’s why I was skeptic about this book and the Bennet family in the modern era.
To my surprise Katie Oliver did a splendid job. Yes, Mr. Darcy is honeymooning on a fancy yatch and Emma is working in a bakery but still they have that special aura Austen gave them.
The story is enjoyable and funny; Emma lives at home with her parents, with a boring job and no romance on the horizon, and when a top reality show starts being filmed at the Bennet household, she feels even more uncomfortable.
She finds a bit of distraction matchmaking her assistant, Martine to the best bachelor in town. But when she meets Mark Knightley, the guy behind the reality show, Emma finds her own heart on the line.
If you are looking for a light romance book, this is the one.
