I am Tammy Payne. I am an avid book reader and I also have a book blog :)
I already read and loved the book its funny as all heck but the narrator brought this story to life totally for me
Luke and Derek when they were under the spell
She does an excellent job at voice narrating
Yes and I did :)
Personally, I enjoyed both equally. Hollie does a good job bringing Leigh to life.
This is the first Audible I've listened to that has been narrated by Hollie, but I think she did a wonderful job.
Either in print or audio, this book has me laughing. Leigh and her adventures with her witchy writing desk are pure entertainment.
Leigh has some serious mishaps in her accidental witchy adventures. Either she does't realize what she is doing or it just doesn't work out quite the way she hopes.
The main character is very shallow and frivolous. I was hoping for it to humorous. I did not find it so. The story line was weak as well. The narrator was good.
Tell us about yourself!
I really enjoyed this and didn't think I would. Sorry now I left it so long in my library without so much as a glance. It is expensive for the length but I enjoyed it so much I will be purchasing book 2. Had to pay attention as the story skips from real life to fiction in a heartbeat and I did get lost a couple of times but that's the beauty of the rewind.
It was hilarious, actually made me laugh out "very" loud when everyone was asleep and I just couldn't stop. So glad I gave this book a chance. The characters were well developed and very likeable, all of them. JUST TOO SHORT! Mini cliffhanger at the end, just enough to peek my interest and make sure I need to get 2nd instalment.
The narrator, Hollie Jackson was soooo goood I had to check whether she was the author. It felt like she new the characters so well and the story just flowed from her lips. Melanie James can be very satisfied because Hollie did an amazing job. Sadly many times a narrator can completely kill a book and other times no matter how good the narrator, the book just hasn't "got it". In this case, both the book and the narration complement eachother to perfection.
Accidental Leigh is the first book in the Literal Leigh Romance Diaries. Leigh is a teacher who happens to love to read. She decides that over the summer break she should write a novel. She starts looking for a desk and finds one for free. She soon realizes that this desk is not just a normal desk when things she writes start happening in real life.
This book is hysterical. All of the crazy scenes that Leigh writes had me laughing out loud when they became reality and they never had quite the same outcome that you would expect. Ms James has a way with words and she had me engaged from the first chapter and I couldn't put this book down. I cannot wait to read the next book in that series, Serious Leigh.
This was such a fun book to read. It was witty and charming. I found myself laughing out loud. I just can't tell you enough how funny and entertaining this book is! The only thing I hated about the book is I have to wait for the next installment. Don't miss this funny and sexy paranormal romance.
yes the author is brilliant in writing fun story that is still a good plot
Hollie Jackson IS Leigh she is perfect and I can see Leigh in my mind as she eads
when they were at the petting zoo
This is a great series a must read
"A Hilarious Book"
One of the most Memorable moments is Sarah and Bill's experience. It was absolutely hilarious!
Hollie Jackson brings voice and peronsality to Leigh that you just can't get in your own head.
My extreme reaction to this book - was laughter and more laughter.... Loved every minute of it!!!
This series is one of my favs. I had previously read this book, but listening to it on Audible made me fall in love with it all over again.. I cannot wait to listen to the whole series. I'm sure I will be listening to it again and again. Melanie did an Amazing job writting this series. Hollie Jackson did an Amazing job bringing this book to life.
All of Melanie James' audio books have been great in my opinion.
Well Leigh of course! I've read almost the full series already so I know how well Melanie builds her other characters...stay tuned for her next release!
Her interactions with Luna ...don't want to give anything away.
Don't drink and view....
I'm so glad these are being developed into audio books. And I really look forward to hearing the "New" characters come to life.
Hilarious, Creative, Fun
I've read the entire series of 5 books so far and each one gets better than the previous. It's all written in such a creative and way that you fall in love with each of the characters. I can't compare it to anything else I've read but it reminds me like I've watching a romantic comedy or a funny sitcom on television.
She does such an excellent job of getting the timing right for the humor and she brings a unique voice to each of the characters.
Leigh is just an average single girl that accidentally comes upon a desk that magically recreates everything she writes into disastrously funny reality; for her close friends and family.
I love the entire series and I couldn't wait for the audio version. Even better than the book! I am checking every day for the second book Seriously to come out on audio!
