Still on My Mind #18

Still on My Mind is a weekly meme, featured on Thursday, started by Haley over at Ya-Aholic, where you discuss a book you've either recently read, or read over the past few years, that's still on your mind.


I am posting my Still on my Mind a little early this week, because I'm super busy on Thursday's, especially in the morning.


So for this week's Still on my Mind I have decided to do a book I read quite a few years ago.  It was way before The Romance Bookie was even a though.


Back in 2007 I read a book called Jemima J.  It is by Jane Green, whose written quite a few others, and even though I've read a couple of her other works, none of them felt like Jemima J.


Description from Goodreads:


Jemima Jones is overweight. About one hundred pounds overweight. Treated like a maid by her thin and social-climbing roommates, and lorded over by the beautiful Geraldine (less talented but better paid) at the Kilburn Herald, Jemima finds that her only consolation is food. Add to this her passion for her charming, sexy, and unobtainable colleague Ben, and Jemima knows her life is in need of a serious change. When she meets Brad, an eligible California hunk, over the Internet, she has the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself–as JJ, the slim, beautiful, gym-obsessed glamour girl. But when her long-distance Romeo demands that they meet, she must conquer her food addiction to become the bone-thin model of her e-mails–no small feat.
With a fast-paced plot that never quits and a surprise ending no reader will see coming, Jemima J is the chronicle of one woman's quest to become the woman she's always wanted to be, learning along the way a host of lessons about attraction, addiction, the meaning of true love, and, ultimately, who she really is.

At the time of me reading it, it was one of my absolute favorites.  I actually did a VERY short review of this back in 2010, it was actually my second entry!

Because it's been so long, I have actually added it to my list of books that I read years ago and really want to reread, (it's one of the changed I'm making next year :)).

So that's it from me this week for Still On My Mind! I hope to be done with my current book soon, I'm just super busy, and under quite a bit of stress, so it's been a bit tough.  But hopefully by the beginning of next week it'll be done! :)
