I found the part where she went to live in an elderly people's flat complex very entertaining but this part of the novel was quite brief. Being English I found the part when Leandra went to London with her boy toy at the time Oliver to be quite insulting.
Even though I am not from London this part of the novel made English people seem stuck up and that all we do is make snobby nick names for one other, drink tea and play polo - which I assure you could not be more wrong - I almost stopped reading during this part of the novel as I was so annoyed at how English people were being portrayed.
The authors would have greatly benefitted from some advice on this section from an English person as some of the language used in dialogue was not typical of an English person and was more American - although this could have been to a suit the larger audience.
Eg "flat complex" where English people usually say "block of flats" - but this was only a minor issue. Also the novel ended without much about Demi who was seeing a married man, this part of the novel didn't get addressed at the end so now readers have no idea whether she stayed with him or not??
Actually very disappointed with this book as I had high hopes for it. Lots of potential but it just didn't hit the mark. I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more if Leandra just didn't exist as a character!
Couldn't bring myself to give it more than 2 stars. Jun 09, Elyse rated it liked it. Spoilers ahead. Just finished this and i am super sorry to say that it wasn't as good as i hoped it would be.
I only read this because i am a fan of Shay Mitchell and i used to watch Pretty Little Liars religiously read all 16 books too. Its blatantly clear that the character of Sophia is based off of Shay herself. But its like ok, if this character is based off of you, who were your friends back in the day and why the hell did you hang out with people that kept mak 2. But its like ok, if this character is based off of you, who were your friends back in the day and why the hell did you hang out with people that kept making one bad decision after another without intervening and doing something about it?!
Leandra or the person shes based off of is a codependent bimbo that jumps from one rich guy to the next to solidify confidence in herself and to cover up the loneliness she feels in losing her sister to cancer. I really thought she would get it through her head that what she was doing to herself was clearly unhealthy and she would see the light by the end of the book, but sadly that did not happen.
I pray whoever this chick is, she gets some serious therapy. She obviously needs help! And Demi or the person shes based off of is so completely heartbroken about her loser of a boyfriend cheating on her duh, cuz hes a douche that she goes into an alcoholic binge frenzy for 3 months and has to get arrested in order for her to see thats shes messing up her life.

But even after that, she was still so hung up on the asshole ex, that she has sex with him to "empower herself and be liberated".
And then she starts sleeping with her new boss. Who may or may not be married. But its ok to still sleep with him cuz she swears she won't fall in love with him. Its never even addressed that he may or may not have a wife!
Are you freaking kidding me?! I wanted to smack her upside the head so bad that it gave me migrains.
The only person that turned out well was Sophia but since she was based off of one of the authors so of course, she came out on top. I did not like the whole "possibly roofied and raped" scenario.
That was too much for me. If there is a sequel to this book, i will not be reading it. Shay Mitchell i still love you and i hope you write more books in the future but don't write anything like this ever again. Ok rant over. On to the next book! Jul 30, Betty rated it did not like it Shelves: I was really looking forward to reading this book. It was something new for me. I suppose this might be popular among the much younger demography, but I cringe to think of them reading it.
It was poorly written and the characters were self-centered airheads.
I found it to be very dull and predictable. Demi is irresponsible and not trustworthy. Leandra is a total bimbo! Travels the world using one rich m I was really looking forward to reading this book. Travels the world using one rich man after another. Sophia is the only somewhat intelligent one.
There must have been an earlier book that this is a sequel to but it made references to important events happening in their lives that were prior to this story. But I have seen nothing to verify that this is a sequel. Definitely not worth downloading. Fortunately it is a quick read so not much timeis actually wasted on it. Apr 06, Elizabeth rated it it was ok Shelves: I checked this book out of the library.
These are my personal opinions. I received no outside person comments or opinions. First off, I am a huge PLL fan. But I did not go into reading this book blindly. I read the reviews and knew full well that the writing and characterization wasn't great. I read 3 pages before I gave up. That must be a new record for me. I was so surprised by how self entitled the characters were. I also felt like because of the way the book was written that a grad Source: I also felt like because of the way the book was written that a grade schooler could have written it.
It was that bad. But I guess I'm not surprised. I mean Shay Mitchell is a successful actress and I guess the characters may resemble her personality. I could be wrong though.
Bliss : a novel
Overall, I think the story idea is good but the writing needs improvement. Oct 16, Catherine Kennedy rated it liked it. Kept me interested in the characters - but overall nothing too great in here.
It was also my first stab at an audiobook, convenient but just not the same. Jun 07, Tony rated it it was amazing Shelves: Full review posted on my blog. Jan 16, Readingee rated it it was ok. I liked the book, however, I don't think it lived up to the hype that surrounded it.
I think the primary reason I chose to read this book was because I am a massive fan of Shay Mitchell and all she does, and I was hoping for an equally exciting and insightful novel. Personally, I think it was my fault for not reading the blurb initially, but I thought this was going to be formatted like a self help book and I didn't realise it would be a narrative.
I liked the quotes that kicked off every chapte I liked the book, however, I don't think it lived up to the hype that surrounded it. I liked the quotes that kicked off every chapter, I thought they were cool, and were more in the form of the self help layout I was expecting.
The story of each of the girls, I hate to say it but was kind of a little vanilla. A struggling actor, a lost soul who was always on the hunt for their next partner and a somewhat recovering alcoholic - I'm not saying how they turned out in the end wasn't good, but something about it felt flat. It wasn't the inspiring, uplifting novel that I expected. It'd seem that I have nothing positive about this book, but I do 'lo and behold - I don't like ending reviews on a negative note.
I thought the moral of the story was a clear theme throughout the novel, and it wasn't a message that was lost in translation like novels can often do. I think it was a realistic portrayal of what life is like, there was massive ups and downs but to get back up each type with a stronger spirit is such an important trait to have.
The actual writing of the novel was done well, and enabled me to immerse myself into the world of each of the characters. Overall, it was okay - I expected a little more, but not bad for a first book on Mitchell's behalf! May 06, Kayleigh Brookes rated it liked it.
I was excited to start reading this book, it sounded like it would have an interesting plot. Its something more of a light read during the summer, which is what I was looking for. I enjoyed it.
The characters were vastly different from one another. While reading it though, I had mixed emotions. I wasn't sure if I should keep reading or put it down. I have to admit, Leandra drove me mental. All those poor guys she left behind and used and abused made me sick. She's a character I can honestly say I I was excited to start reading this book, it sounded like it would have an interesting plot. She's a character I can honestly say I hate and I had to push myself to read through her perspective.
Shes a character who cares about absolutely no one but herself. I understand there's a past there but I just couldn't do it. I liked Sophia.
She was the one out of all three who I liked the most. Demi, I felt sorry for. Two guys in a row who didn't respect the sanctity of a monogamous relationship. I just wish we could have heard more from both of them. Why it happened? Why didn't we hear her and Aiden's discussion once he knew that she knew about his marriage? I just feel like that part was missing from the story.
I feel like as a reader, I needed some closure. Because to me, he sounds like an ass, and I can't justify her reasons for sticking around and working for him unless he had a really good explanation. Even if he was trying to support his wife back home. Overall, I'd recommend it for a light summer read, but nothing much more than that. Nov 29, Nicole taleswithnicole rated it really liked it. I was originally drawn to this book for the obvious reason, one of the authors is from Pretty Little Liars.
I haven't seen many reviews for Bliss, but the ones I have seen haven't lived up to the hype I was hoping for. Regardless I was still excited to experience this book and see what Shay Mitchell had to offer as a writer. I think I read this book at the right place in my life. Already in my mid twenties I have a few years experience negotiating the waters of friends, work and relationships. Did she lose on purpose? Was the race fixed? Why on earth would she do something so out of character? That night, Mark confronts Clare with his suspicions, but she storms off after an explosive argument.
It's the last time Mark sees her alive. Hours later, Clare jumps to her death from the balcony of a London hotel Devastated by her death, and almost overcome with guilt, Mark goes in search of answers.
What led Clare to take her own life? Or was it not suicide at all? Felix Francis is the younger son of thriller-writing legend, Dick Francis, with whom he co-wrote the four most recent Dick Francis Novels, Dead Heat, Silks, Even Money and Crossfire, with Felix taking an increasingly greater role in the writing. The girls are spoiled and privileged. This is an easy read, the book caught my eye because of Shay Mitchell's name as the author.
The book reminds me of a Girl esque type of book.
The book describes everyone as stunning , which seems unrealistic but it caught my attention throughout the story. Leandra's character annoyed me because she was so vapid and materialistic. She has no aspirations for herself.
Sophia was most relatable because she seemed hard working and respected herself. Demi also annoyed me because she kept getting herself into big trouble.More filters.
It was that bad. I don't like reading books where I don't like the main characters and I really didn't like Leandra - she basically is a gold digger w I thought this book would be a lot better than it was sadly.
