Brooklyn Girls: Pia - Gemma Burgess
Reading Challenge Category: The first book of a trilogy
Official Book Blurb:
Jobless. Clueless. Topless on Facebook. Welcome to New York City. Pia Keller is not living the dream. Unemployed, unemployable and broke, post-Uni life in a Brooklyn townhouse with her four best friends suddenly isn't so easy. And that's before heartbreaks, hipsters, all-nighters, one-nighters, food trucks, screw-ups, loan sharks and jail-time make things a whole lot more complicated... Who knew adulthood would be so damn grown-up? Fans of Tammara Webber, Colleen Hoover and Abbi Glines are about to find their new favourite author... Not suitable for readers under 15.
I’m really undecided on whether I enjoyed this or not. I sort of did, and sort of didn’t. I think maybe I’m just too old for it as Pia just seemed too young and irresponsible for my liking as I kept getting annoyed by her. I kept thinking she has forgotten about the money she needs to be saving for the loan shark, or what on earth would she be carrying it around with her instead of going to pay him early. Yet, on the other hand, it was nice to see her grow and things go right for her in the end. I am a little intrigued to read the follow-on books to find out what happens to Angie and Coco, but again half of me thinks am I just going to get annoyed by their youngness. So why put myself through it again but I hate to leave things unfinished aaaaahhhhh!
