Laura's Diary ~ Book Review

When you think of a book written as a diary I am willing to bet that a majority of people (unless you are a huge diary lover) will think of the world famous Anne Franks Diary. Which don't get me wrong is an amazing book. I have to admit I'm not really that huge of a diary lover, that is up until now, recently I was just browsing the clearance section in WHsmith (never a good idea) and picked out a couple of books that really caught my eye. One of witch was a book called 'Laura's Diary'.

No exaggeration the second I got home I started reading. An hour or two hater I had finished it. I am actually quite a slow reader so that is quite unusual for me. This is a very quick read. I also thought this was quite funny and flowed really well. Considering this wasn't actually intended on being read by other people it was quite amazing.

I really found myself relating to Laura. Some of the things she writes (e.g. the tally were she was judging boys) was exactly the same as my diary from a few years ago. By the time I had finished the book I felt as though I actually knew her.

I also really liked the way this books looked. I loved that the actual text wasn't typed up and that it was actually a copy of her handwriting, it even included a little doodle on every other page.

As this book is a diary of over 10 years I was concerned with how they would link the years and weather it would seen a little bit disjointed and therefore become confusing. However I was really please as to how they had edited this together and I actually didn't even really notice that any time had past.

As a whole I gave this book 4/5 stars on 'Goodreads' as I did really enjoy it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a really light read. Maybe even if you haven't read many diary books and are trying to get into them I would say that this is a great way to get started.
