Lottie Biggs is NOT Mad, or Desperate, or Tragic.

You must be wondering what on earth I'm on about, unless you've read the books that is.
The first one in the series is Lottie Biggs is NOT Mad.
It's a great book and is for anybody really, I recommend it, it's really funny! Here's a bit about the book I got from the website (I'll give you the link later):
My name is Lottie Biggs and in three weeks time, I will be fifteen years old. At school, most people call me Lottie Not-Very-Biggs. I’ve never found this particularly funny...My current hair colour is Melody Deep Plum which is not as nice as Melody Forest Flame but definitely better than the dodgy custard colour I tried last week...
And this is my book – it’s about important things like boys and shoes and polo-neck knickers and rescuing giraffes and NOT fancying Gareth Stingecombe (even though he has manly thighs) and hanging-out with your best friend having A BLATANTLY FUNNY TIME. It is definitely not about sitting in wardrobes or having a mental disturbance of any kind!
Lottie Biggs is about shoes and boys and English Coursework and selling tights, and dyeing your hair and fancying Neil Adam and hanging-out with your best-friend and detesting poetry and loving art and having a seriously funny time! It’s definitely not about being mad…
A heart-achingly honest and utterly hilarious voice - about the life of a teenage girl and so much more.

So yeah, you should definitely check it out as well as the next book in the series, which is Lottie Biggs is NOT Desperate. And here's some info I also found on the website:
Why am I edgy as an eggshell? Am I doomed to be a tragic desperado my whole life? Am I normal? Or am I mad? If not, why am I being kept awake at night by a hyperactive geriatric chinchilla and indecent visions of Gareth Stingecombe wearing his dad's BRITNEY SPEARS BOXER SHORTS?
What it all comes down to is this...will I, ever actually have a passionate experience?
The next one in the series is Lottie Biggs is NOT Tragic. I haven't read that one yet because it's not out until August. And once again, a bit from the website:
Just when things were starting to look up for Lottie her life's gone a bit pear-shaped, wonk-ways and downside up again. Her mum's all soppy over a bloke with a horrible shemo* daughter, her best pal Goose has disappeared in a cloud of nerd-gas and Lottie's in the midst of an existential crisis. There's only one thing to do - get the hell out of Cardiff and go on the road with the gorgeous Gareth Stingecombe (and his manly thighs). But things don’t go to plan, and Lottie starts to realise she might have been a bit me me me lately. . .

*a female emo, obviously

Now, what you've all been waiting for (probably since I keep giving you bits from it), the Website! Well the link to it anyway. You should definitely check it out because it lets you know all about Hayley Long, the author.
So there's the link, happy now? Hopefully.
Until next time,
Beccy xox
