  1. Bleurgh This book really isn t very good I m sure the author is lovely and sweet but this is one of the worst chick lit books I ve read in a while Here s whyI m not quite sure I liked one single character, especially not Billy He was absolutely ridiculous always cheerful, making stupidly boring supposedly funny comments and as for the throw the head back laugh Good god He sounds like the most boring man of all time Sophie was almost as bad, a spoilt over sensitive brat who you just have to love [...]


  2. Gonna keep this short and sweet I wanted to like this, I really did But it felt like nothing than a grammatically correct fan fiction There was no depth to any of the characters, bar a SLIGHT insight into Sophie s past Sophie and Billy s relationship escalated within pages and the book on a whole was fast paced, rushed and would sit best in the young adult section of a book shop at best.



  3. I m sorry I can see I m out of kilter with most readers on this but this book just didn t work for me Waitress and film star fall in love that s fine I use that too in one of my books But this film star is just too good to be true He s constantly smiling and laughing, using out of kilter phrases for his age, and is just so sweet that I couldn t believe in him Yet I guess he s why the book appeals to so many We all want film stars pop stars to be lovely people and fall in love with ordinary peopl [...]


  4. This book was awful and the only reason I finished it was because I am a firm believer in finishing a book no matter what I did come very close to breaking my rule with this one though The characters were unlikeable, I found Sophie to be spoilt and pathetic and any girl who thinks that Billy could be lovable or a perfect boyfriend needs to have a reality check I was annoyed by the fact that Sophie claimed that she wanted her independence and seemed like a hard working knows what she wants girl b [...]


  5. Where do I start with Billy and Me I picked up this book from the library because I love Gi, I think she s lovely and incredibly talented But let s just say I m glad I didn t buy it.This book had a plot that, written well, could ve been really good However, the characters were awful By halfway through the book I was shouting at Sophie May for example I wish you were real so I could punch you in the face , she was completely over sensitive to any situation and spun round any situation to suit her [...]


  6. Originally on I Heart Chick Lit iheart chicklit First stop of the BILLY AND ME BLOG TOUR What I thought about it BILLY AND ME HAS TO BE THE BEST DEBUT NOVEL FOR ME SO FAR OK, so sorry for the shouty pointy capital letters, but you get my point, right Have you ever woke up after finishing a book and feeling really satisfied but completely thrown that you have finished it already Yup, that was how I felt Gorgeous cover, check Exciting, intriguing plot Check What do you need When you see this book [...]



  7. Really easy and cute to read A slightly predictable story, and I did find myself getting irritated by Sophie s mentality towards Billy s acting commitments, but still enjoyable Not overly romantic or dramatic, just a simple slice of life


  8. As usual, MAJOR spoilers ahead.I wanted to like this book, I really did I couldn t, tho You know why Because it was BORING Main character, Sophie, in theory was very relatable I mean, if I got a dollar every time I dreamt about celebrity falling in love with me, I d be so rich, that the psychiatrist I obviously need, could live with me full time in my huge mansion in Orange County.How cool it would be if Matthew Daddario, stricken with our beauty, chatted us up in a bookstore Or if Tom Hiddlesto [...]


  9. ARC received courtesy of First Reads Giveaway Billy and Me was such a fun read The author, Giovanna Fletcher, featured a young woman from a small village who falls for a movie star He falls for her as well and the story is off Sophie s character is very well rounded and her back story is well explained The only part of the story that I didn t like was Sophie s behavior after she and Billy parted ways I found her to be simpering and she seemed so overly dependent on Billy that I couldn t root for [...]


  10. This was an absolutely wonderful read Equal parts heartwarming and heartbreaking, I found myself actually laughing and crying along with the characters And I very rarely actually cry at books.The story is about Sophie, a quiet young woman who lives in a tiny village There, she works at the local tea shop She doesn t really have friends except her Mum and Molly the lady who owns the shop but all the local customers love her and she likes her little life But tragedy in her past has always held her [...]


  11. AUDIOBOOK REVIEW I m saddened that this didn t touch me I, too, am a young person dealing with the death of my father but this failed to capture me, considering how alike our stories are I found the most interesting part of the narrative to be the beginning when Sophie met Billy in her village considering that this is a massive romance cliche, for me it was the most interesting, and perhaps to others what would be considered the most interesting part of the plot the move to London, Billy s life [...]



  12. Well, to start with, I was deadly anxious to have this book in my hands for long It took than a month to arrive here in Brazil hello, efficient post and less than 24 hours for me to read it Let me just explain it all, and you ll understand what I mean.Tom was my favourite McFly and inspired me a little every day Giovanna was, at first, his cute and somewhat mysterious girlfriend With her gradually being active on twitter and tumblr, I started to develop an admiration for her which led me to ha [...]


  13. Sophie May lives in her little village Rather than travelling the world or setting off to university excitedly with friends, Sophie has instead stayed in the village of Rosefont Hill, living with her mum and spending her days working at the local teashop The main reason for this is that Sophie May has a secret she s been keeping One day she meets the handsome Billy Buskin an actor with high ambitions in his life, and as they fall in love, Sophie is pulled away from her village life and thrust in [...]


  14. Billy and Me follows Sophie and surprise Billy Billy started his career as an actor in a teen movie, but now wants to play grown up roles So while preparing for filming a new version of pride prejudice in the small village where Sophie lives, he walks into the tea shop she works in They begin talking and even pracitsing his lines together Of course, they fall for each other, but it s not so easy for Sophie, what with her experiences in the past to suddenly be in the spotlight I really liked thi [...]


  15. OMG G You are a genius I did NOT expect that one to be so good WOW I picked it up because McFly they re a band are my all,my life,my reason of existing ,and stuff like that, for ten years now And Giovanna has been a part of the family and i just love that girl so much She s Tom s wife Tom is from McFly i ll spare you the gory details of my obsession with the Fletcher family and McFly, and i ll get on with my book review which is why you re reading this probably xD Billy and Me is such a great bo [...]


  16. I will be honest, one of the main reasons I picked this up was because it was written by Tom from Mcfly s wife, bit of a daft reason for buying a book I know, but loads of girls without offending any guys that have bought it will have picked it up for the same reason I really liked the cover, it looked interesting and the usual for what I would normally choose when picking a book This is Giovanna s first novel, so wasn t at all sure what to expect Reading the blurb I was quite intrigued as the s [...]


  17. I enjoyed this book for what it was, a girly light read I enjoyed it as an audible than when I attempted to read it on my kindle I think this is because it flowed better and was easy for me to listen to whilst working than staring at a screen not really feeling it.The blurb starts by saying Sophie May has a secret this is what drew me to the book I felt it might possibly be a little different to other Chick Lit but unfortunately the secret was a little disappointing for me to read It didn t rea [...]


  18. To be completely honest, my expectations weren t very high for this book I adore Giovanna, but how often are debut novels really brilliant I haven t come across many.However, I really, really enjoyed this I had absolutely no clue what it was about when I picked it up and I was really impressed with the story line After a few chapters I was expecting it to be another cozy, tea drinking, cake eating, English countryside fantasy Those can be great, but also quite flat and not exactly the ones you g [...]


  19. Let me just flat out say that this book was incredibly cheesy And not even in a good way I was incredibly excited to get a copy of this, but I am extremely disappointed There was no substance in this book at all Most importantly, there was no chemistry between Billy and Sophie The author just chucked them out there, expecting us to work out their relationship, without even making an effort to make it work Despite all the I love yous and I need yous being thrown around, it just didn t work And wh [...]


  20. HFAJFLKDLFJEI84D2DE9I4 Ahhhhh so many feelings I really thought that from all the books in the world, this one won t make me cry, but it did.It s a beautiful well written story.To be honest, I could have seen what s going to happen most of the times, but I still enjoyed every bit of the book I loved the characters and everything about them There were times I felt Sophie was being overreacting, though.Anyway, if you look for a cute love story that will make you smile or cry depends in which part [...]


  21. Beautifully written with an amazing story line Read in less than 24 hours couldn t put it down Would class Billy and Me as one of my favourite books of all time Definitely one to read again and again, it s a must buy Was so happy to win this as a first read and was excited at the possibility of it arriving every day, make sure you ve pre ordered Billy and Me to get it on 23rd May Well Done Gi


  22. What a lovely read Warmed to Sophie May straight away and the whole idea of her meeting actor Billy Buskin and being swept off her feet and away from her safe little world There were quite a few sad moments in it too but on the whole I really enjoyed it and can now reas the sequel Always with Love.


  23. Oh my god this sounds so amazing I can t wait to read what Giovanna wife of one of the best musicians ever Tom Fletcher has written.


  24. I don t really have a lot to say about this book I really hated main character, and Billy was unbelievably annoying with his stupid throw his head back laughter My main problem with this book was that I genuinely don t see what Billy did wrong other than be a little too cozy with one of his co stars I don t know if it s because I am studying acting and I know what s involved so I can relate to his perspective, but Sophie knew exactly what she was in for, and if she can t differentiate between t [...]


  25. I became a huge fan of Giovanna Fletcher when I read You re the One That I Want and Dream a Little Dream, both books featuring characters that I still think about now The release of Always with Love was the perfect time for me to finally pick up my copy of Billy and Me and meet this couple that lots of my fellow bloggers went crazy about when the book was first released before reading the sequel It took me no time at all to get lost in the world that Giovanna had created and she is now an author [...]


  26. Hmm, so the hype up to the release of this book has been so major that I m feeling a little deflated now I have read it I m actually in two minds whether I liked it or not I mean I did, but I didn t Weird hey As you re aware the plot follows shy, insecure, tea shop working, Sophie May falling in love and being swept off her feet by teen Heartthrob and actor Billy Buskin The book is very thorough, there s nothing missing and everything s clear This allows you to just relax and let your imaginatio [...]
