Blog Tour Geli Voyantes Hot or Not by Elle Field with Giveaway


'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


I was so pleased to be a part of Elle's Tour for her second novel. I enjoyed Kept, her debut which I read earlier this year so was very keen to read her next book!

Angelica or Geli as she is known (she hates Angelica) works at the News News company and writes the weekly Hot or Not column. Yes she actually gets to decide what she thinks is Hot or Not and people will follow what she says! Sounds kool, but Geli is finding it a bit boring and she doesn't just want to be known as this fickle, air-headed person, especially where the hot Theo is concerned. Theo is clever and his column is much more high brow than Geli's and he couldn't possibly be interested in Geli. What had me laughing hysterically was when Theo was talking to her about the Hilary Obama race and Geli thought he was talking about an actual race! I liked Theo to start with, but then my suspicions were raised a little further into the novel and I began to greatly distrust him. Towards the end I thought it was blatantly obvious something was up and was incredibly frustrated at Geli's determined unawareness; brushing off her suspicions with a simple shake of her head.

I liked Geli, she is the same age as me and has exactly the same worries! These main worries being that she is going to be single forever and basically be a cat lady, even though she is allergic to cats! Her worries are heightened though when she logs into Facebook at work and has notifications of her friends getting engaged! The real sting though is when she sees the notification that her horrible stepsister Tiggy has got engaged and not only that the guy she is engaged to is hot! Geli absolutely hates Tiggy and I don't blame her in the slightest. Tiggy is practically everything that Geli isn't even though she may be trying to be! Tiggy has caused a lot of upset in Geli's family and this engagement is the last thing Geli wants to go to!

I love that this was set in London and in The Gherkin no less! Not far from where I work.

There was so much drama and twists and turns in this I found myself finishing it before I knew it was the end!
