    1. I certainly enjoyed this book, but it was what I was looking for at the time Something light and breezy Nothing too complicated at all I fully admit to not using my brain much during this reading, but I had a slight migraine and I was not tired enough to sleep Not the authors best work, but still good.

    2. After reading Jill Smolinksi s The Next Thing on My List, I was very eager to read by this author so I picked up Flip Flopped While it was a good, easy read, I found this novel harder to get into, perhaps because I felt distanced from all of the characters Usually in a chick lit type book, I can relate to the heroine or main character, but in this case, I was very detached from her.The book also had a number of different themes running throughout with plot lines pertaining to everything from di [...]

    3. If you like chick lit this is pretty good The story of a mainlander, Keely, that goes to Hawaii to study volcanos and meets, has a kid with, and marries a native Hawaiin Hubby Kam cheats so they are in the middle of a divorce sometimes nasty, sometimes sweet Keely meets Ian while in line to get Davy Jones autograph The guy I was rooting for didn t win which makes me a little sad, but it was entertaining easy, and cute quirky and throw in a fairly extinct volcano acting up and you get a few good [...]

    5. Even with the main character undergoing a chaotic crazy life, the author finds a way to put in humor and make this a fun read For those readers that like to learn something, the author really did her homework on Hawaii and volcanos Great beach read and a great late night read with no scary parts.

    7. The character of Keeley Baker Kekuhi was hard for me to cheer for There are parts of her that I enjoyed reading about like her interaction with Ian Gardiner, the artist rep that is attracted to her Even her best friend Regatta who made Keeley her maid of honor is funny to read about What I didn t like was her relationship with her soon to be ex husband, Kam, who moved in with his girlfriend and is trying for full custody of their child, Dante I realize that the story is named Flip Floopped, but [...]

    8. So the book, to me, has a very similar love story as The Next Thing On My List, so much so that I could already tell the ending Normally I would hate this, but this was such a relatable story for me that I overlooked it and kept reading Totally glad I did because there was a few twists in it, but overall it was good The thing that was distracting to me was the secondary story of this damn volcano that I think took away from the main storyline That s just me though Basically it s about a woman wh [...]

    10. I was warned by most reviews that the books wasn t that great Many liked the beginning but said the rest was a bore I agree with this I really enjoyed the start, it got me intrigued but then when a new guy came into the picture, I lost interest This is mainly because I liked Keeley and Kam together I kept on reading because I was rooting for them Not to give too much away, I was quite disappointed with the ending What helped me get through this book was I had actors in mind as I read from each p [...]

    11. Not really what i was expecting Kinda fools you but you can still know the end since the begining This book can surely work as a beach reading while you watch the kids or something, but if you have just a little time to read i urge you not to chose this one Is light and sometimes kindda funny, but i really expected Is not bad though, read it if you have it I think the author have a lot of potencial, this is my first read of her, but im looking forward to read THE NEXT THING ON MY LIST.

    12. I have never been a book quitter I just couldn t do it But I gave this book 10 pages to grab my attention, to proceed from one thought to the next understandably and to get me interested in the characters It didn t pass the test So I m starting a new thing for 2014 no reading books that I don t like I still don t think I ll be able to quit a book halfway through, but I m not going to force myself to read something just because I ve read a chapter or two and it sucks Life is too short to read cr [...]

    13. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, probably because it has plenty of heart wrenching spots You all know I love a good tragedy I actually stayed up all night and read it in one sitting That fact alone warrants an extra star This is my second novel by Jill Smolinski She s going on my read everything she writes list There were plenty of items for me to critique, but none of them were that annoying and none of them even stilted the speed flow with which I was reading, so who cares what they are

    14. Keeley originally headed to Hawaii to study volcanoes but ended up marrying a local and settling down to raise a child with him The pace of their world is slow and relaxed But when her husband moves out with a hula dancer and wants to take their child with him, Keeley needs to join the fight and fast Good holiday read, with some funny lines and scenes, but some of the characters didn t really ring true, and it was hard to see why she would want Kam back.

    15. Sehr ent uschendes Buch da wollte ich nur mal was seichtes nebenbei lesen und es stellt sich als sehr langweilig und nichtssagend herraus Vielleicht liegt es daran, das ich noch keine eigenen Kinder habe, Scheidungen mich bisher nicht interressieren, Hawaii f r mich total unspanned uns und ein Vulkanausbruch das Buch auch nicht rettet Dabei bin ich mit gro en Erwartungen an das Buch rann gegangen Denn ihr erster Roman Die Wunschliste ist soooo sch n.

    16. Entertaining but not great Not memorable Seemed to take much longer to read than other chick lit of as many pages Lots of themes and metaphors that made sense in conjunction with the story, so in a literary sense I guess you could say it was good in the way it drew solid parallels Not reminiscent of The Next Thing on My List at all, though.

    17. I think I read this before so I m stopping at page 50 and skimming the rest Found my review from 2006 Transplant to Hawaiian life, Kelly tries to understand her ex, convince people a volcano is doing the improbable and getting ready to explode, and to learn to date again Very funny look at life in Hawaii.

    18. A fun read and I think the title was appropriate Keeley flip flopped considerably on what to do in her life but it all worked out in the end Everyone in the book had odd names Keeley, Kam, Dante, Regatta and even her quirky lawyer I loved the setting of Hawaii and the volcano sub plot and also Keeley s obsession with Davy Jones of the Monkees

    19. Ugh, I thought a book about Hawaii would be great The only thing I remember from this book involves the scene with the man bringing peas into the ocean for the fish to eat it I actually had frozen peas in my fridge and tried to feed my fish Needless to say, doesn t really translate from aquariums from the ocean.

    21. After 50 pages of this book, I abandoned it I couldn t get interested in the characters or the storyline For chick lit , I thought it was lame I don t say that about many books Oh well, life is way too short to read books I am not interested in

    30. I didn t really enjoy the book The theme was quite realistic and different with Hawaiian culture background Though I did not enjoy the authors writing style and the briefness.
