Nah who decides to take a second leap f fate and move from London to Hong Kong to be with boyfriend Sam It s a fortune cookie that helped her make the decision Following your heart will pay Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy off in the near future Hannah is thrilled that herwn best friend Stacy is also making the move with her Hannah manages to secure a job in fashion that she loves with a totally cool boss despite the little issue Greetings! of her not having a work permit She and Stacy make uick friends and Hannah is blissfully happy with Sam Kindf At least when he s not constantly traveling for his job and possibly cheating n her with a co worker Sam wouldn t do that to her would he He wanted her to move with him to Hong Kong but he doesn t seem to be making any sort f commitment to Hannah Did she really get this wrong Did she move to Hong Kong Tribeca only to fail at her relationship I had such a fun time reading Misfortune Cookie It was great to catch up with Hannah again and she is such a fun heroine Enthusiastic about life not afraid to take a chance and always with a great attitude The story moved along uickly and actually finished this book in a day The ending kindf had me like wait what but I can tell it s definitely set up for a next book so I understand the cliff hanger There was just Grey's Lady one little thing that I want to pointut the use Blue Streak of characters calling Hannah Han It just happened a lot I think halff them could have been cut The Asketikon of St Basil the Great out But I think this book should gon your to read list Even if you haven t read the first I think readers would still enjoy it but I also suggest checking ut Single in the City as well I ll look forward to the next installment Misfortune Cookie is the follow up to Michelle Gorman s Chick Lit debut Single in the City Like its predecessor this novel follows the international meanderings f somewhat ditzy protagonist Hannah her varied love interests and her best friend Stacy While Chick Lit isn t typically a heavy genre and Hannah isn t a deep girl Misfortune Cookie is a cut above the typical novel f its typeOne f the beauties Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time of the book is its less common setting in Hong Kong rather than the standard Chick Lit localef London Gorman s descriptions Thoroughly Disarmed of Hong Kong its culture and people are notnly fascinating but also lovely The respect and understanding that Hannah gains as she discovers both her new home and her somewhat new self are appealing and help hold ur interest in a way that the same character development wouldn t in a less exotic locale Hannah s glimpses into Hong Kong might not be earth shattering just as her discoveries about herself aren t but they are sweet and ften lovely and they honestly and accurately evoke what it feels like to be young and struggling to find yourself and your place in a very big worldI enjoy Chick Lit and it s not uncommon for me to find laugh After the Ashes out loud scenes in such books Often the genre contains positively humiliating events that make us cringe as well However it is not typical in my experience to find a Chick Lit novel that will make you cry Thisne will The authenticity The Angry Planet of Hannah s broken heart brought tears to my eyes and many memories to mindf my Melody's Key own struggles with finding love at her age Gorman has nailed it spotn and while it doesn t detract at all from the verall lightheartedness f the novel it does add a certain depth that isn t always present in the genre Because A Chance Acquaintance of Gorman s ability to portray Hannah s struggles and development so realistically as well as the detailed and engrossing descriptionsf Hong Kong I rate this novel higher than her previous work and higher than the typical Chick Lit submission Bravo Michelle thanks for a nice trip For f my reviews httpravenous reader book reviewsblogspotcomI think there are times in ur adult grown up lives where we don t want to remember that we had ever been desperately in love like with someone who didn t like love us back as much I really think like hurts a little than love sometimes because nce you get ver the fact that he never really liked you as much as you loved him that you realize it never was love at all Then when you do find true real love you realize how dumb you were and kick yourself in the rump for wasting time The Wallflower's Revenge on such a loser in the first place But was it really a wastef time Maybe not Life starts ut being a series f lessons some painful than War to the Knife: Bleeding Kansas, 1854-1861 others some harder to learn thanther but lessons that end up benefiting us whether we want it to at the time Leaving Mother Lake: A Girlhood at the Edge of the World or not Reflection certainly has given me lessons that I learned a long time ago that I use todayMisfortune Cookie was a book about life s lessons Hannah being the perfect poster child for me to get back into dart throwing was the young lady who really needed to learn some life lessons I will admit that while I could totally relate to manyf her feelings and irrationalities I didn. Casional weekends with Sam when he can get away from an unanticipated work assignment n the pposite side f the South China Sea Still she's ptimistic if woefully unprepared for the intricacies f Hong Kong Stumbling through the alien city which she loves she starts to build a life for herself Thin.

Loved it from beginning to endI ve read Single in the City not long ago and loved the fact that Michele Gorman decided to write a seuel I was eagerly waiting and voting watching her homepage for updates I ve never been to Hong Kong but it wasn t hard to get a picture f the city the way Gorman described it I could see myself wandering the streets with Hannah and StacyHannah has new adventures Hannah seems Marriage After God: Chasing Boldly After God’s Purpose for Your Life Together on the surface to be a self absorbed ditz which I have to admit in the beginningf the book completely irritated me beyond belief Having not read the previous book first it took me a while to find all the redeeming ualities in her character In this book Hannah seems to be growing into a better person I love the interaction between characters I look forward to seeing what Hannah does in the next installmentcause honestly Oh how I love Hannah and her adventures Misfortune Cookie was an amazing book it was not as funny as Single in the City but it was totally worth my time This book picks up right where single in the city left usHannah was asked by her boyfriend to move to Hong Kong and she does Things don t go ut the way she expects them to at firstespecially when it to comes to her relationship with Sam Along the way we not nly get to know Hong Kong and various parts Blue Blood of Chinance again just like the first book the details The Gollywhopper Games: Friend or Foe of each place Hannah visited were amazing so well described that it felt like you were there in person but we also get to see Hannah grow mature and learn so many things about life relationships and second chances Once again I must praise Gorman s ability to write such amazing storiesI was glued to this book I sure hope there s a third installment to this story because judging by the way it ended it seems like there might be space for I loooved the ending but it also raised some uestions I would like to have the answers toAll in all a perfect read Totally worth it The title and the cover art were both creative and pretty Sadly those are thenly two things I liked about this book Ultimately this was not my kind Parafilias (Spanish Edition) of book in any way and I have no interest inther It's Like This offerings from GormanThe protagonist is a whiny needy jealous insecure immature bumbling idiot She ramblesn and The Mirage on for pages about being alone in the city when she was supposed to be there with her boyfriend who s a workaholic and doesn t visit asften as she needs him to So she wanders aimlessly second guessing her choice to move to Hong Kong likely irritating locals with her poor communication skills language barrier notwithstanding If I were her boyfriend I wouldn t have put up with her for a second She s pathetic Who wants a clingy woman who has no self confidence and ruins all the time you spend together by doubting being snarky and nagging Some f the writing was witty but there was no real action in this book until much too far into itSpoilerOf course your boyfriend is going to see ther women when you act like you want to break up with him and then verbally AGREE to it I wanted so badly for her to find some spine and go after what she wanted She just whined in her head and acted like a wallflower A little self confidence would have worked wonders for this headache inducing protagonist 2012 04 29Excellent book2012 05 26Misfortune Cookie by Michele GormanI received this ebook from Michele Gorman to read and review I read it uite uickly after receiving it but real life has got in the way Rituels secrets des Templiers of me writing a full review any sooner for which I apologiseMisfortune Cookie is a fun read falling clearly into the chicklit genre It is a testament to Michele s writing ability that at the same time time that she makes her main character Hannah a rather selfish and uite self centred person you still want to findut what happens to her and despite her ways you want things to turn ut right for herI think this dichotomy may be because although Hannah displays lots f selfish behaviour she can also be very kind and rarely sets A Mild Suicide out to hurtr harm anyone She is loyal to those she regards as friendsOne thing that made this book for me was Michele s description Beethoven for a Later Age: The Journey of a String Quartet of Hong Kong I have never yet visited Hong Kong so Misfortune Cookie gave me a flavourf the city its heat and humidity Hong Kong was as much Born to Ride: A Story About Bicycle Face of a character in this book as anyf the peopleMichele s writing style is engaging and thus easy to read There was little repetition and the descriptions Origen: Scholarship in the Service of the Church of places clear crisp and atmospheric Without being heavy handed there was never any doubt that we were anywhere but Hong KongAll in all I thoroughly recommend this book it is an excellent summer read Ladies download it to
