Geli Voyante’s Hot or Not
by Elle Field
‘I think I will always be known as the Hot or Not girl, defined by it for the rest of my career. Even my tombstone will read: Angelica “Geli” Voyante, beloved trendsetter. Death? Not Hot.
Yet, it doesn’t sound right. Why won’t anyone realise that there is more to me than this fickle persona I have inadvertently become?‘
Geli Voyante is bored of being the Hot or Not girl, even if it has the perk of sitting next to Theo, the newspaper’s very Hot political columnist. She’s also getting a little lonely being single.
When her arch-nemesis Tiggy Boodles gets engaged, and other loved ones start to settle down, it’s time for Geli to convince Theo that she’s not as shallow as her column suggests and, more importantly, she’s the one for him. Geli should remember though that there are always two sides to every story, and that applies to people too.
★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!
Geli Voyante seemed to think she’s being left out, especially after her frenemy Tiggy got engaged and everyone she knew were either settled down or were bound to walk down the aisle anytime soon. Where was her place under the sun?
In my opinion, Angelica Geli Voyante had it all. She wrote the Hot or Not column and snagged her ideal boyfriend. But insecurities crawled upon her when she saw her arch-enemies picture/status on Facebook. Yes, Tiggy was getting married and she wasn’t pleased with the news. At all.
I thought at first that Geli’s thinking was absurd. She basically thought she should be joining the bandwagon, just because everyone else was getting married. And then she got interested with her stepsister’s boyfriend. Ah, not good at all.
What’s really interesting in this story was how Geli and Tiggy became mortal enemies when they initially started out as friends. Their respective family dramas pinched my heart in the most fascinating way. They even had me laughing all the way until the end. Yes, believe it or not, Geli Voyante is a troublesome character that can get you hot or not. Elle Field deserves to have a field day for this delightfully written story! My heart smiles for you!
