The Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

My rating: 3.6

TifAni went to prestigious Bradley School and endured a shocking, public humiliation that left her desperate to reinvent herself. She now has a glamorous job, expensive wardrobe, and handsome blue blood fiancé. She has worked hard to achieve what she has and you find out what has driven her through various flash backs.

This is a hard one for me to review. The first 1/3 of the book was not enjoyable at all - Ani is a superficial conniving woman that was so manipulative it set my teeth on edge. Then there is a big reveal that was so horrific and reeled me in and got me to see Ani in a different light. Then things were a bit more entertaining but still dragged till the next big reveal. Then things flowed a bit better and then wrapped up. This had enough that I kept reading and don't regret it but can't say this is a must read. For me, two contrived "big incidents" don't make up for completely unlikable characters and a poor story line.


  1. Totally agree with your review. SOOO contrived but pacing was just good enough that I stuck it out to the end.

    1. Thanks Jeana. I think if she could have made the ending a bit better, it could have been worth it. Hard with contrived plot AND unlikable characters though. I am hoping to read TONS on my trip to China :-)
