One Comment to Love and Other Man-Made Disasters

  1. Hi, I m Nicola I cannot write funny bios.I grew up in Monkstown, Co Dublin and studied English at Trinity College, Dublin and at Hertford College, Oxford I worked in publishing for several years before writing my first book The Out of Office Girl, which was shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Novel of the Year 2013 in the Romantic Comedy category My second book, If I Could Turn Back Time, is out now from Headline I like cooking, running, watching make up lessons on YouTube, New York, California, Friday Night Lights and Stila eyeliner I live in Highbury, north London, with my husband and no cats yet.

  2. I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley This in no way impacted on my view.Love and Other Man Made Disasters is about Juno, a girl who s scared of just about everything Now that her mam has remarried, she s on her way to Austria, to spend her Easter holidays skiing with her new step family Suffice to say, she s not looking forward to it Really, she could be spending that time much better by revising for her A Levels, but no, she s in hell There s so many dangerous thin [...]


  3. I don t usually read contemporary novels, but I had to pick this one up just because the author was Irish yes, I have a real obsession with Ireland At first, I thought it was going to be one of these fluffy and cheesy reads but I actually really enjoyed it.I really liked the main character and the love interest I think they were smart and realistic and I liked the fact that they weren t all over each other all the time.The story never felt flat, which made this book a real page turner.I really r [...]


  4. I m a big fan of Nicola Doherty s romantic comedy novels and was really excited to hear her new book was going to be a contemporary teen romance because Nicola s style of writing felt like the perfect match for that genre And it was Love and Other Man Made Disasters is a really refreshing read fun and warm and simply a really sweet little page turner Juno is a worrier The world is a scary place and she stresses about all the scary things to the level she struggles to enjoy a life outside of stud [...]


  5. These are just some of the things I m afraid of.1 Climate change.2 World War Three.3 Terrorist attacks.4 Getting cancer and dying.5 Getting cancer and dying without ever falling in love I m pretty sure that if I get cancer, there won t be a gorgeous guy with one leg in my support group.6 My hair getting caught in a bus or car door and strangling me.7 Being kidnapped and murdered by a serial killer and buried in someone s back garden.8 Failing all my A levels Or doing badly and it all goes wrong [...]


  6. I m the first to admit that I don t tend to read YA books, or anything aimed at the younger market, and often when I do take the plunge, I find myself thinking that I am the wrong audience for them I am delighted to say that I had none of those reservations while reading Love and Other Man Made Disasters, which is a great story of young love, and learning not to be scared I will also admit that I was laughing at the first couple of pages, which is Juno s huge list of things she is scared of, mos [...]


  7. Juno is scared of a lot of things Climate change, urban foxes, zombies the usual So when she goes on a skiing holiday with her mum s adrenaline mad new husband and his tearaway twins, she doesn t hold much hope of surviving Then she meets Boy Gruff, hairy and thrill seeking, he s everything Juno doesn t like Or is he I went into Love and Other Man Made Disasters expecting a story about a girl with an anxiety disorder expanding her comfort zone and finding romance along the way Instead, I got a s [...]


  8. I thought this was quite a sweet book about a girl who worries a bit too much than is good for her and is forced to go on a dangerous skiing holiday with her mum and stepdad.Firstly, I want to say that I did actually enjoy this book, but unfortunately I think it suffered a little because of my own expectations When I heard that Juno was a compulsive worrier, I kind of assumed that the story would be an investigation into what life is like living with generalised anxiety disorder, or something si [...]


  9. I received a copy from Netgalley.I snagged a copy of this one from my Hatchette Children s auto approval at some point last year It s a cute light hearted contemporary, easy and quick to read, but only okay for me There was nothing particularly outstanding about it It wasn t a bad book by any means, just a little bland for my tastes It tells the story of 17 year old Juno who s on a skiing trip with her family, her mum and mum s second husband and her two annoying twin step brothers Juno s very n [...]


  10. I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Love and Other Man Made Disasters was a bit of an assortment of things for me Juno s almost droll outlook and wisdom made me smile, but I wasn t a fan of the pacing and I didn t really get Boy as a BBF.As someone who has spent a couple of years as a Seasonaire and a large chunk of my life on family snowboarding holidays, I enjoyed all the skier boarder references I ve lived the chalet lifestyle and also been the [...]


  11. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Hachette Children s Group and NetGalley I wish I was, literally, anywhere but here This was a YA contemporary romance story, about a girl who worried about everything.Juno was an okay character, and I could see why she would worry about things like zombie apocalypses, and planes crashing She did step out of her comfort zone and attempt skiing though, which was pretty brave of her.The storyline in this was [...]


  12. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.I really, REALLY wanted to love this book I was so ready for a light, cute contemporary that would give me loads of feels Unfortunately, this wasn t that book The storyline spans over a short period of time, making the romance seemed rushed and way too insta lovey Overall, this was a bit of a disappointment so I don t think I ll be reading any novels by Nicola Doherty.Click here to read my full review.


  13. a really cute, easy read about facing your fears, trying new things, and the new friends and loves you can meet along the way.


  14. It was amazing Not only was it about skiing, it was about the man who doesn t quite fit in Finished it in 3 days, I only put it down for school.


  15. Nicola Doherty, a well established chick lit author, is trying herself writing contemporary teen romance, and Love and Other Man Made Disasters is her first attempt and let me tell you right now, a very successful attempt It seems that this genre comes to her as easily and comfortably as writing stories for the older audience You know, I rather don t read YA as the characters in those books, these young people full of themselves thinking they ve seen everything already just annoy me incredibly, [...]


  16. ARC kindly provided by Hachette Children s Books in exchange for an honest review.Review Love and Other Man Made Disasters probably isn t the BEST YA romance novel in the world To be COMPLETELY honest, I couldn t find anything in it that was particularly special There was all that typical drama rama about first love and the first, nervous experiences teenagers have with them So blah, blah, blah.Nothing special, like I said.What did appeal to me was the skiing I haven t come across many young adu [...]


  17. 17 year old Juno has just arrived at the family holiday from hell, well that s what she thinks it s going to be like Her family comprising of her mum, Siobhan, Step Father Ed and his eight year old, annoying twin boys are supposed to be having a fun week in Austria, skiing.There is a teeny tiny problem though Juno can t ski and what s , she doesn t want to learn to ski either You see, Juno is afraid of anything that has the potential to do her harm or kill her and I mean anything, including Worl [...]


  18. As posted on hollieinwanderlust 2Summer is quickly approaching can anyone believe it s almost JUNE Madness and I m just as quickly getting stuck back into my summer reads I decided to start this month s reading off with a YA contemporary, Love and Other Man Made Disasters by Nicola Doherty Thanks very much to the team at Hachette Children s Group for my copy of this book I have to say that this one was a pretty short read short and sweet and this is a good thing the book is absolutely perfect fo [...]


  19. I have read many Nicola Doherty novels before and I have loved them all, so when I knew she was going to be writing a young adult novel I couldn t wait to get into it First of all I was a little disappointed as I sat down to read this in the height of summer I know not much of one in Britain but it was set in Austria on the slopes This was something not mentioned in the blurb or anything, had I of known I would have saved this to read over the winter as I think I may have enjoyed it This is a v [...]


  20. Well, this was such a cute book.I ve never read anything by Nicola before but I can tell I will defiantly be reading from her I do love a good, cute, fluffy teenage romance story and this one ticked all the boxes.Juno is going on a skiing trip with her mother and her new stepfather, plus her new twin stepbrothers She has a list of things she s afraid will happen, including what to do in a zombie apocalypse Juno doesn t mind her new step family, but she misses her dad and her new stepdad gets on [...]


  21. Sometimes I just like reading a bit of cute and that s exactly what I got from Nicola Doherty s Love And Other Man Made Disasters It didn t take me long to read at all I can totally appreciate that there are some moments that seem a bit out of character for our main character Juno, but if you can let that go then I think this would be a perfect contemporary for you It definitely screams holiday read to me.Juno is a girl that is worried about everything You might think that she suffers from anxie [...]


  22. There are some authors that I just trust to entertain me you know, the ones that you are convinced won t let you down Nicola Doherty is in that collection of writers.Doherty s latest release Love and Other Man Made Disasters a young adult fiction, no less tells the story of teenage worrier Juno Juno is convinced that she is going to fail all her exams or get ran or worst case but still very likely get caught in a zombie apocalypse Quite frankly, she is putting years on herself with all the worry [...]


  23. Juno is scared of quite a few things, and worries excessively about them She has a count down to her A Level exams, so when she is forced to go on a ski trip with her mother, step father and two brothers for a week, it feels like a nightmare to her Despite being told she can t do any revision, she smuggles some in anyway knowing that she wouldn t dare go on the slopes.But Juno meets a ski instructor called Boy who starts to gradually change her views and opinions about the world itself But will [...]


  24. This book was a cute summer read, despite the cold, ski lodge setting I really enjoyed it despite the fact that I did definitely find a lot of faults and even a few inconsistencies.Juno was an interesting character At the start I thought she was a completely spoilt brat, she did become likeable I can t lie and say she was a great main character though Boy was also an interesting character, interesting meaning that I actually liked him to start with but towards the end he became a complete idiot [...]


  25. Juno worries about everything and is constantly prepared for the worst When her mum and step father take a family trip to a skiing resort, all Juno can think about is what could go wrong She d rather be anywhere but with her stepdad and his twin sons, who she can t yet think of as family With her A Levels coming up, Juno is encouraged to enjoy a break because she studies so hard, but she smuggles revision along anyway, fully expecting she ll need it to fill her time because there s no way she s [...]


  26. Actual Rating 3.5 starsLove and Other Man Made Disasters is being marketed at fans of Holly Smale and I can definitely see where the publishers are coming from I adore the Geek Girl series and while Love and Other Man Made Disasters lacks some of the charm and wit of Geek Girl, it seems down to Earth and relatable as well as being aimed at the slightly older teenager.Forced to go on a skiing holiday with her mum and new step family when all she wants to do is revise, Juno unexpectedly find love [...]


  27. I ve really enjoyed Nina Doherty s adult novels, so when I saw that she had a YA novel out I couldn t not pick it up Her writing is light and fun, great for summer holidays Love and Other Man Made Disasters is a quick and easy read with great characters and an interesting setting I d recommend picking it up if you ve read any of Nicola s other novels and enjoyed them, or if you re looking for a book to read in one sitting on a sunny day by the pool Don t expect to believe every word of it, thoug [...]


  28. This is a sweet little contemporary YA that is easy to read and easy to love Juno is a perfect MC she s not strong, not gorgeous, not incredible in anyway she s just a 17 year old girl who is scared of too many things, trying to cope with life But in Love and Other Man Made Disasters, she gets a taste of real life a life that involves doing something even if it terrifies you, strangers who become friends, a slightly odd boy, making unexpected connections with your family, and the world outside o [...]
