    About “Jenny McLachlan

    1. Jenny McLachlan says:

      I have always loved reading and I studied English at university just so that I could read a bit Next I found my way into secondary teaching and discovered that I loved it too I got to read books, show off and hang out with very funny teenagers What a great job Teaching English also encouraged me to write Soon I had planned and started lots of different stories, but they were all abandoned and shoved to the back of a drawer Then, one day, the plot for Flirty Dancing came together Bea s story was so alive it was like a film running in my head and I knew it was a story I would finish.Over the next few years, various exciting events distracted me from Flirty Dancing I got married, travelled the world, was chased by an angry elephant and a pack of dogs and I had two babies While I was sitting on trains, swimming in the Outback and raising two crazy girls, I kept thinking about Bea, and her friends, Betty, Kat and Pearl, until I realised I had planned three books.In 2013, after attending the Winchester Writers Festival, I plucked up the courage to send Flirty Dancing to Julia Churchill, a brilliant children s fiction agent at A.M Heath With dazzling speed I was then signed by Bloomsbury to write the four books in the series.

    1. In May, I took the plunge and flew off on my first solo trip to Stockholm, Sweden. I adored this beautiful, watery country so much that I couldn't wait to pick up Jenny McLachlan's summery read, set on the fictional island of Stråla in Sweden's archipelago. It is simultaneously Kat's worst nightmare and my absolute dream. Best. Punishment. Ever. But I admit that no hot showers, no wifi, and no friends would be a shock to the system – and it certainly is for Kat!And then Kat meets Leo. Now [...]

    2. I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.Sunkissed just may be my favourite book in this series so far. For some reason, up until now, I wasn't a fan of Kat, but that opinion totally changed whilst reading this. With each instalment of The Ladybirds, we fall even more in love with the characters, and I absolutely can't wait to read Pearl's books now that I've realised how fab she can be.In Sunkissed, Kat is sent to stay with an auntie [...]

    3. divabooknerd/2015/08/sLike previous books in the Ladybirds series, Sunkissed follows the story of Kat, one part of the group of once best friends and now fumbling through adolescence with each other for support. Kat is fashion conscious and can't live without best friends Bea and Betty, even resident mean girl Pearl. So when she's caught hidden in her wardrobe with her sister's former boyfriend, she knows she's pushed her parents too far. She's on her way to Sweden, spending the next few weeks o [...]

    4. Quite possibly the stupidest book I have ever read. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

    5. 4.5Posted in full reviewedthebook/2015 Sunkissed is book three in Jenny McLachlan’s The Ladybirds series which I have loved right from the beginning. They make perfect reading for all young teenagers but you know, I think they’re perfect reading for anyone looking for some warm and witty escapism. Flirty Dancing was Bea’s story, Love Bomb (my personal favourite) was Betty’s and now Sunkissed tells the story of Kat. Throughout the previous two books, I’ve probably had the most hit-and-m [...]

    6. I absolutely loved the first two books in the Ladybirds series, so I was really looking forward to reading Kat's story. After getting caught hiding inside her wardrobe with her sister's ex-boyfriend, Kat's parents have had enough of her getting up to mischief. So instead of staying home for the summer with her older sister Britta, or going to the USA with her parents, she's shipped off to Sweden. Where she will stay with her Aunt Frida. She hates the fact she'll be leaving her friends Bea, Betty [...]

    7. I recently discovered this series thanks to Bloomsbury India. I have already read Love Bomb (The Ladybird #2) which was my first experience of Jenny McLachlan’s writing style and so, this time around I was a bit prepared about what to expect within the pages of this book. As a result, I found myself enjoying this book a bit more than Love Bomb. The books in this series can be treated and read as standalones even though it centers around a group of friends with each book concentrating on one of [...]

    8. This summer I'm abroad (I'm Swedish) and we got this book in the book shop where I work. Feeling a bit homesick, reading at the back that Kat (our main character) gets banished to Sweden for the summer. "The land of saunas, nudity" oh my! I thought this could be a fun read. I didn't realize that this was in a series but it didn't really matter. I read this literally in two hours. That's not saying that I enjoyed it that much but the font is huge and the story is predictable. Vane girl gets sent [...]

    9. Ahhh man I love The Ladybirds. We've met Bea, Betty and now Kat and I cannot wait to meet Pearl too. This book arrived at the perfect time. When I first started reading I thought uh-oh, Kat doesn't seem like my kind of gal. That quickly changed as I got to know her better. Sunkissed is packed full of of laugh out loud, feel-good moments and I devoured it. Kat is hysterical and I loved watching her transformation throughout the novel.Jenny McLachlan writes teenagers SO well. Reading through these [...]

    10. I absolutely loved Sunkissed! I really liked Kat's character development. It was nice that the story didn't only focus on the romance, but on Kat finding herself during her summer holiday (or should I say punishment). The secondary characters were awesome! I especially liked Auntie Frida, Otto and Nanna. I also surprisingly enjoyed the expansion of Pearl's character, I'm now really looking forward to reading the fourth book in this adorable series.It was good seeing Bea and Betty again, they're [...]

    11. I really enjoyed this book, I thought it was going to be very predictable but it surprised me so I've bumped it up to 5 stars.

    12. Because of her history of behaving badly and making some questionable decisions, Kat is shipped off to stay with her aunt in Sweden while her parents are in the United States. She's not thrilled about it, especially since she will be separated from her three friends, but she figures she'll make do with shopping and hanging out in Stockholm. But upon her arrival, her aunt, Frida, a free spirit, informs her that they're heading to Strala, and there is no reception on the remote island. Although th [...]

    13. Cute. Kat's a little exhausting sometimes, but I was really happy to find a bit of YA fiction taking place in SwedenI think the only other book I've found in that vein is Swede Dreams (and I cannot tell you how much I wish that particular series had kept going on and on and on).Kat spends pretty much her entire time in Sweden on an island, but she manages to have quite a few experiences that seem Sweden-specific, which is nice. I suppose her being away from the city spares us much of the shoppin [...]

    14. When Kat is found in the closet with her sister's ex-boyfriend, her parents decide that she is not to be trusted while her parents are on holiday. Kat is sent to her crazy Aunt Frida's house for the summer. Her Aunt Frida loves being one with nature and not wearing shoes (or clothes for that matter). When Kat arrives she realizes that Frida has booked them a place on an isolated island where only the natives live. Kat is appalled that she didn't know about these plans and even more appalled to r [...]

    15. British teen, Kat, is caught hiding in the closet with her sister’s ex-boyfriend. Since this isn’t the first infraction to cause her parents not to trust her, they pack her off to spend the summer with Aunt Frida on a small island in Sweden where there is no cell phone service & everyone is on island time. Kat learns a lot about herself & others during the summer, making new friends & trying new things. Of course, there’s a slight romance & some teenage angst, but all in al [...]

    16. This was a short, fun, read reminiscent of Louise Rennison's writing. I haven't read the other books in the series, not knowing it was part of a series, but it made no difference in my understanding/enjoyment of this one. The fun runs actually did sound fun - especially the Creepy Elf run. I'm going to have to try it out, sometime!

    17. I received a copy from Netgalley.It took me a while to get into this one, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I wound up loving it. i requested this one from Netgalley when I was looking for some cute fluffy fun books. I didn't even realise it was the third book in a series. But I think it worked perfectly well, and nothing was really confusing and I didn't feel like I was missing anything from not having read the others in the series. The main character, Kat, comes across at first as a s [...]

    18. I received an eARC of this novel from the publisher through Net Galley.This was my very first encounter with Jenny McLachlan's writing. Sunkissed, from what I understand, is the third book in a 4-book companion series (thinkStephanie Perkins, and her Anna, Lola and Isla series) that features one girl from a group of four friends in each book. These can be read as standalone novels, and I read Sunkissed without having read the two preceding books.I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed t [...]

    19. Thank you to Bloomsbury for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!Find this review and more on my blog The Rest Is Still Unwritten!Sunkissed is the adorable third novel in Jenny McLachlan’s Ladybirds series and this time stars Kat, who finds herself on an unexpected adventure of a lifetime in this fun summer read.Fashion lover Kat can’t believe she’s being sent to spend the summer with her flighty Aunt Frida in Sweden. She’ll be stuck on an island in the [...]

    20. To start, it is the third book in the amazing Ladybird series by Jenny McLachlan (who is actually bringing out another book later this year, I believe!

    21. Spending the summer in Sweden would be a lot of people’s idea of a dream vacation. But not for Kat. After she is caught in a compromising position her parents decide the best punishment is to send her to stay with her auntie for a few months. And to make things worse, not only is Kat being exiled from England but she will be spending the summer on an island in the middle of nowhere without the luxuries of home. No phone reception, internet or electricity in her new island home Kat is forced to [...]

    22. Fifteen year old Kat Knightely's parents have had enough with her attitude and always finding herself in trouble, while they head to the USA for a holiday, they're sending her to spend the summer with her Aunt Frida in Sweden. What Kat doesn't realise until she lands in Stockholm, is that she will be spending the summer on an island, Stråla. No phone, no friends, no shopping.I loved both Flirty Dancing and Love Bomb, the previous two books in Jenny McLachlan's Ladybirds series, but I wasn't as [...]

    23. The book is about a Teenage girl named Kat, one of the girls in the "Ladybird" friendship. Her summer plans are ruined when her Mother and Father decide to send her away to stay with her Aunt Frida in Sweden. Without her friends and a phone signal, Kat is not happy. She has to learn to embrace the "different" lifestyle that is lived by her Aunt and others on the island, at first she found it hard but with the help of a boy named Leo she realises it's not so bad!I really enjoyed this book! Throug [...]

    24. 4.5 Stars!Again with the tardy reviews - I'm really getting good at the whole procrastinating thingSUNKISSED DID NOT DISAPPOINTunlike Love Bomb, UGH. It's so strange how the first one was GREAT, the second, UGH and now this one AMAZING. Does that mean the fourth one might be UGH too? (You know I'm totally making up excuses to say UGH as many times as I can, right?)You know why I loved this one the most so far? Because it doesn't just focus on the selected Ladybird member, Kat. It also gives a bi [...]

    25. All of these books are so cute. While I had issues with the AGES of the characters (they seem really young and the tone is kind of MG, but then one of them smokes??) I had a lot of fun :)_____________________________________FLIRTY DANCING will always be my favourite in this series, but SUNKISSED was pretty adorable.Despite me not really liking Kat as a character (she was your typical spoiled twelvie) she grew on me. So basically she’s stranded on this island with no reception and nothing to do [...]
