When you ask people about their favourite city in the world, it seems fitting to have New York City in the top five, at least. It is one of my favourite cities for countless reasons. To give you a bit of history, New York city was the first city in the world to start the I Heart.. trade mark back in 1970, as part of a marketing campaign to increase tourism. Now you see it all around the world. Many of us might not have known we had New York to thank for that.
There are so many reasons why New York is one of my favorite cities (I won’t bore you with them!), so when my best friend gave me a book called I Heart New York it seemed very fitting and I couldn’t wait to see what the book had to offer. I Heart New York (2001) was written by British author Lindsey Kelk. Lindsey started writing this novel after returning to London from her vacation in New York City and was struggling to shake off the blues. This then triggered a series of I Heart books, each about other favourite cities around the world. Lindsey’s famous titles include, I Heart London (2012), I Heart Paris (2010), I Heart Christmas (2013), A Girl’s Best Friend (2015), plus many more (published as well as e-books).
In this particular book, Anglea takes the first flight from London to New York after catching her boyfriend cheating on her. She falls in love with the fabulous city and, as a result of a New York City make-over, finds herself in the middle of a relationship dilemma.
This book pays tribute to everything New York is all about; the fabulous lifestyle the city has to offer, as well as the down side of it. It is a light read for all Big Apple lovers, including yours truly. The book is also a tribute to Carrie Bradshaw’s character in Sex and the City, set in the 90s New York that all women fell in love with and still talk about today.< Back
