This is an entertaining and fluffy read wink I m glad one of my US friends thought of me and gave it to me As this novel is based on a screen play there s isn t much in *depth characterization but it doesn t spoil the reading experience The premise of a morning talk show *characterization but it doesn t spoil the reading experience The premise of a morning talk show actually uite exciting and colorful The story reads very fluently and I could visualize those great actors especially Harrison Ford as the grumpy and uniue Mike Pommeroy delivering a few of those great lines Now that I ve read it I really look forward to seeing the movie I hope it comes out in
BELGIUM SOON REVIEWING MOVIE NOVELIZATIONS IS soon Reviewing movie novelizations is though probably not as tough as writing them If there are weaknesses in plot or characters lack of motivation or inconsistencies do you blame the author or the screenwriter Where does one person s creation end and another s beginMorning Glory isn t perfect but it s full of fun characters created by Aline Brosh McKenna and fleshed out by Peterfreund The plot really does play as the perfect chick flick Girl unlucky in love and life starts over in New York City where she overcomes preconceptions and antagonists to prove she s got what it takesOkay I m making it sound cheesy than it is but you
the point I to criticize the book for being a little thin because you can tell Peterfreund is following rules set up by someone else but the book does lack that certain spark that s made me love all of her other work Becky however is a likable protagonist and I found myself rooting for her even if her social awkwardness was a little clich Peterfreund made it work Becky s dating troubles were a slightly eye roll inducing until I got to the line I don t know a guy is into me until he s naked and it was frighteningly familiar to something I would have thoughtsaid While you don t really forget that it s a movie in book form there s a certain lack of well roundedness to the world that you would find in a straight up chick lit book Peterfreund makes you care about BeckyRead of my review at Lit Snit I really enjoyed this book The plot is simple a producer gets let go when she thinks she is going to get promoted She then has to prove herself at her new ob I thought it was witty and fun and above all else very easy to read no thinking reuired Its a over all feel good story I never saw this movie but picked up the book ages ago since I m a fan of Diana Peterfruend s Secret Society Girl seriesThis was what you d expect I guess A little silly at times and you see everything coming in a way that means I was never really drawn in I liked the love interest and Colleen but everyone else Duty just felt like maybe not uite stereotypes but again exactly what you d expect I have never seen the movie versionI read this a few year s ago on vacation It was perfect for what I was seekingVery light feel good story I liked the main characterBecky There seem to be so many Becky The major motion picture from Paramount BREAKING NEWS Plucky young TV producer is fired from her gig at a local morning show in New Jersey but vows to land on her feet With an unfinished college education and suddenly out of aob Becky Fuller finds herself at Daybreak a floundering network morning news program in New York City that's sinking faster than the Titanic Abysmal ratin. And Becca s in booksI also liked reading about the field of I always gravitate to those types of books Although most of book selections are pretty dark when on vacation it is nice to read a lighthearted romance something sentimental and sweet Highly recommended Still want to see the movie version I saw this on sale and thought why not I d recently watching the movie version and was in a rare mood for some fluffy chick lit Some background this was a novelization of the movie The movie came out in 2010 and starred Rachel McAdams Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton I liked the premise of the story I wanted to be a ournalist in college and am familiar with the news industry However Becky fell flat as a main character for me Becky is tenacious and dedicated to her ob as a result she s obsessed with news and her BlackBerry Becky mentions how her dating life is a flop because she s so addicted to her BlackBerry Look I m a millenial I understand being addicted to my phone Hell I forgot my phone at home during a short afternoon of errands this week and felt as if I d lost a limb HOWEVER constantly checking your phone on a first date and then getting upset because said date is fed up Nah girl The other characters also fell flat for me Adam the love interest had potential Mike was my favorite character perhaps I was picturing Harrison Ford s character from the movie but I thought he was the most dimensional and least annoying Which is confusing because his character was supposed to be annoyingIn all it wasn t a terrible read It was light it was
Get The Point I
it was predictable I d stick to the movie and skip the book I rated it a 25 on Goodreads It s officialI love everything that Diana Peterfreund writes This was such a fun chick litI love the main character Becky and I love her enthusiasmeven though her ob is not as easy as it seemsI really liked her dialogues with MikeI was laughing out loud so many timesHis grumpiness is hilariousI also loved Colleen and Lennythey re greatAndAdamOverallshort and funnyFavourite uotes Let s have at it I strode to the door and pulled the doorknob It came off in my hand That was one of our best doorknobs said Lenny Beer is fine I said For now Adam waited as I put in my order You ll need something stiffer after Mike really starts getting to you Oh he s getting to me I said as the bartender brought my beer Usually I drink Sprite The key to a frittata Mike told the camera is to use a really hot pan Because that my friends is what makes it he paused dramatically fluffy Diana Peterfreund s Morning Glory is the novelization of the movie of the same name written for the big screen by Aline Brosh McKenna It s obvious from the start that Peterfreund a successful novelist is working within someone else s parameters and that s what makes this one so tough to review As Erin at Lit Snit so articulately asked Where does one person Gs are only the tip of the iceberg The outdated cameras belong in the Smithsonian and executive producers never stay beyond the next commercial break To reverse the downward spiral Becky hires legendary newscaster Mike Pomeroy as co anchor or rather she makes him an offer he can't contractually refuse Mike abhors Daybreak's fluff pieces pet psychics and takes an instant dislike
