Michelle Prak is author of Media Queen, Goodbye Newsroom and The Train Guy.
Reviews for Media Queen:
“This story of Jordyn Fairweather and how she got to be how she got to be is quintessential chick lit. Like sit on the beach and chill chick lit. It’s snarky and plot driven. I liked and disliked Jordyn at the same time! Prak’s development of the character was such that the insight provided to the reader made Jordyn a three dimensional character. Jordyn is, excuse my language, a bitch, but one with glimmers of humanity.” (Five stars from Stephanie on Goodreads).
“I loved this book. It moves fast even though it spans 20 years. Jordyn, the main character, takes drive and ambition to the next level….I haven’t read the first novel in the series and I will be reading it for sure but you don’t have to have read it to enjoy the book.” (Five stars from Debbie on Goodreads).
“I have loved this second book in the Holly Anna series. I think it’s really clever writing that this book is history of the rival to Holly Anna, Joryn Fairweather. Even in her teens Jordyn is a bit of a grumpy guss but she has such a passion for writing articles that’s its hard not to like her a little bit. She worked hard to get where she got and in the end you begin to feel a bit sorry for her.” (Sarah on Goodreads).
“While I was hesitant to get into the book seeing as it is the second one on the series, I was pleasantly surprised that it did not make me feel like I was missing out on another part. Although I am planning to go back and read the first one to better enjoy these books. The writing just flowed together and I caught myself turning page after page. It is definitely a book that you can get caught up in. I enjoyed getting lost in this book and look forward to requesting it to everyone!” (Five stars from Ruby on Amazon.com) Read more about Media Queen.
Reviews for The Train Guy:
“Perfect rom-com tension and surprise.”
“A quirky little Australian rom-com that takes the concept of seeing the same stranger daily and having a little fantasy life about that person to a whole new level.”
“THE TRAIN GUY by Michelle Prak is a fun read! I loved spending time inside Charli Reid’s mind. Her curiosity about her fellow commuters, her lusting after one of them (The Train Guy), her daydreaming about their fantasy future life, plus all the weird and wacky random thoughts going through her mind had me laughing often.”
“The book follows Charli along her life…mostly her work and travel to and from work…including her fantasies about ‘The Train Guy’. Does she ever talk to the Train Guy? Does the Train Guy live up to the hype? You’ll want to read this to find out! Charli is so relatable, especially for us shy introverts. I really enjoyed reading this and kept wanting to pick it back up. I was super happy with how everything turned out and how this book ended!”
“This book hooked me right in the beginning and I did not want to put it down. It was a fun quick read that had me thinking – I need to take more chances to have my life go more the way I want it to, rather than wait around for good things to happen”. Read more about The Train Guy.
Reviews for Goodbye Newsroom:
“I loved this book! The characters are fun and the generation gap makes for some interesting conflicts. The storyline kept my attention without being overly complicated and raises some really interesting questions about the digital and social world we now live in. Overall an easy and entertaining read.”
“The novel is light, but entertaining and the writing is great – it really draws the reader along. The dialogue is spot-on, natural and pacy and the story is well plotted, with well drawn, believable characters. ”
“This was such a fun read! The story moves at a satisfying pace with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing and the relationship between the sisters was perfect – a little bit of friction and a whole lot of love.”
“A witty page turner & a perfect holiday read.”
“I quite enjoyed the book, an easy read that touches close personally to me and many current subjects – the world and the challenges of mainstream media, social media community and influencers, career choices in this industry, ethical issues and boundaries that people can face on social channels.” Read more about Goodbye Newsroom.
