    1. My first 'christian' fiction. Possibly my last. I found the 4 girls to be caricatures, and Megan, as the only active Christian in the bunch, is written as a Mary Sue, the most virtuous and able of the 4 girls, the only one who doesn't have a skeleton in her emotional closet. Kendall is written as her polar opposite. She is a narcissistic train wreck that you can't turn away from. She is mean, clueless, alcoholic, shopoholic, bulimic, self-centered, entitled, as spoiled as she can be. We all know [...]


    2. I only give this book 2 stars because I DID finish reading. The characters were very shallow. I really wonder if the author received product kickback because many products were referenced throughout the book. For example: Clinque, Prada. I will not purchase the rest of this series.


    3. Even though the title turned me off of the book a little, I love the author, Melody Carlson, so I decided to read it any way. And trust me the book was much better. "I Heart Bloomberg" is the first in a series about four diverse, young women living in one house together. In this book they all meet each other for the first time and move in together. Each one moving in with different motivations and very different expectations. Anna, Lelani, and Megan are all excited to move in to Kendall's house [...]


    4. Where to start on this book? It started out as a light hearted chiclit book. I guess it ended that way too, but boy did I HATE this book. Megan was pretty much a mary sue. Everyone except Kendall and her boss thought she was the best thing since sliced bread. Kendall is my least favorite character ever. Actually, maybe she passed Twilight's Bella and is #1. There was nothing likable or redeemable about her. She was like Paris Hilton only worse. At least Paris sort of works. The plot was pointles [...]


    5. I was actually relatively surprised when I liked this book. I wasn't completely sure I would enjoy a book about four girls living together but thought it was worth a try anyways. This is one of those books that you didn't realize you read so fast. When you are at the end you think, "Wow, that went by fast". To me this is a good thing. Each chapter of the book is from one of the four girls' perspective. The constant switching of perspectives is probably what made the book go by fast because at ea [...]


    6. I really enjoyed this book, although I can't say it should be labeled a "Christian" book, as no real Christian values were discussed. One of the girls is a Christian, although that's just talked about a few times but never really acted on.I think it was a good book, but I'm hoping her next three in the series are a lot better. The characters weren't too cliche, which I really liked. They all had their own struggles and internal battles and it'll be interesting to see how they work them out.


    7. I Heart Bloomberg is about one obnoxious woman named Kendall whose grandmother gave her a house. She decides to rent out the extra three bedrooms as a way to make some extra money so she doesn't have to work. The house is in pretty bad condition, and the amount of rent she wanted was too high. So the three girls she decides to rent the rooms to talk her down in price in exchange for fixing up the house a bit.I feel like I just gave away the whole plot. In a way, I did. There's really not a whole [...]


    8. This book wasn't one of Melody Carlson's best, but it was still good. I felt that I need to read the rest in the series (which I will) to get the whole plot. But she still weaves interesting characters together and makes an interesting story. I would have liked to know more details about, well, for example, Lelani's story. But I'm assuming that those details will show up in the sequels.A few more notes: I forgot to mention Kendall's character. She is so obnoxious!! If that isn't resolved in the [...]


    9. Melody Carlson, author of more than 200 books, returns with a new book, I Heart Bloomberg which will be released in April. Set in Portland, Oregon, the book is the first in the 86 Bloomberg Place series. Carlson takes a look into the lives and friendships of four new roommates. As you’ve probably guessed, the girls live at 86 Bloomberg Place. Kendall, who received the house as a gift from her grandmother, has decided to take in renters in lieu of getting a job. Who wants to work when you can p [...]


    10. It's classic chick lit, but it was entertaining. I probably like it more because the characters are in the same phase of life as I am.However, it seems to me that the 4 main characters have a little more depth to them then your average chick lit book. And even though it is a "Christian" book, only 1 of the characters is a Christian (that we know of) and she's definitely not perfect, I like that Carlson makes her real. However, all the other "non-Christian characters have for some reason good mor [...]


    11. This first book of the Bloomberg series sets things up for the following books. As such, not a great deal happened, but we did get to know the characters and the house on Bloomberg.It is definitely chick lit, but a little more than that as well. Yes, it's light, easy reading, but it also opens the door to a number of issues that young women face. And the main characters all have issues (one more than the others). It was these issues in the four main characters that actually kept I Heart Bloomber [...]


    12. This book was one of the free ebook on Kindle so I got it and finished reading it in a short period of time.It advertised as something like Sex and the city Christian chick lit. It was definitely interesting to read if you want a light book but it's not great writing or anything.


    13. This was fun and light. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. Its a simple becoming friends story. It kind of echos 'sisterhood of the traveling pants' a bit.



    14. I needed a light book to listen to while I had a long drive and this was the first one that popped up as available. I had no idea what it was about other than "chick lit". I was pleasantly surprised with how I was entertained enough. Though it was pretty predictable and the characters were pretty stereotypical. It was interesting that most of them had a secret and inner demon that they struggled with. The Christian aspect was touched on several times as a main character had a solid moral compass [...]


    15. UnderwhelmingI had high hopes for an easy chick-lit read that would be clean and heartwarming but instead kept waiting for the story to take flight. It never did. I was also highly disappointed by the casual, as well as a bit flippant, attitude toward Christian faith. I’m usually pretty easy to please as a reader, but I find myself very disappointed right now after finishing the book.


    16. Don't read this boring book. It's a waist of time. The writing is slow and shallow. Too bad because the subject has to much potential. This was my first book from this writer and I don't think I will read other books from her.


    17. Kendall's managed to wrangle her grandmother's house-free and clear-except for the rules. No male roommates. But that's ok, with the right ad she'll pull in some girls, their rent and if she's lucky, she won't have to go to work any time soon.For their part, Anna, Lelani, and Megan all have their reasons for wanting to move in: Anna has got to get out from under her overprotective parents; Lelani can't take another day in her aunt's tiny crackerbox house overflowing with toddlers and Megan needs [...]


    18. A fun look at what it's like for four girls who are complete strangers from different backgrounds and with different personalities to move in together.I was captured from the first page by the girls in this book. Though I must confess Kendall did not grow on me until the end of the book, but the other three girls all touched at a part of me. There is the striking beauty from Hawaii who was a premed student but has dropped out and headed to the mainland leaving a secret behind. There is Anna, the [...]


    19. (book, novel)a. about fresh-out-of-college girls and their friends – Kendall inherits a house from an aged relative and decides to rent it to 3 other women. She places an ad in the paper, claiming the house is nicer than it actually is. Kendall is stuck on herself and seems to think the world revolves around her but we (or the characters) don’t learn of this until after her tenants move in with a one-year lease.b. There is Spanish Anna whose overprotective mother is worried that something wi [...]


    20. This is my second Melody Carlson read. Both books were free offerings for Kindle, and I am all about the free. In the new 86 Bloomberg Series, Carlson takes four young women from entirely different backgrounds and throws them together as roommates. Megan is a recent college graduate struggling with the death of her father. Her current living situation is messy and chaotic. Her roommate parties frequently, brings guys home, and in general upsets Megan's Christian lifestyle. She is ready to make a [...]


    21. This was a quick read, not too deep, but realistic. The story lines and dialogue were a little cliche and a little unnatural, but the themes of the book and the struggles of the characters were very real and relatable. The story follows four girls who are strangers as they move in together. They each have their own story and their own reasons for wanting to be on their own, and as they come together there are some clashes and some drama but they are all learning to be on their own and grow up at [...]


    22. “Kendall’s managed to wrangle her grandmother’s house—free and clear—except for the rules. No male roommates.

    23. Meet Kendall: self-centered, bossy and lazy. Kendall has managed to finagle a lovely but run-down house from her grandmother. Grandma still owns it, but has allowed Kendall free reign of it, as long as her roommates are not male. Kendall decides she needs some high-rent paying roomies to finance her lavish lifestyle. Enter Anna, Lelani, and Megan. All three girls are eager to leave their present abode and Kendall’s ad for rooms to rent seems perfect. Perfect, that is, until the girls see the a [...]


    24. This book is the first in a set about four women living at 86 Bloomberg Place. Kendall, the owner is obsessed with shopping and has racked up loads of debt. She also suffers from an eating disorder, is self-centered, and lazy. To avoid getting a job she decides to get renters. Megan, who lives in an apartment with 3 other girls on a college campus has to escape her sleazy roomate Bethany. Anna, the pretty Hispanic, wants to escape her overprotective mother and have some of her own independence. [...]


    25. An okay readbut yet again, one of my major beefs with Christian Fiction rears its head. This isn't a complete story. It seems that if you ARE interested in a complete story (you know--where problems that are introduced get solved and plotlines get resolved) you have to buy _three more books_. I'm sorry, but this is soooo not a $40 story. Don't get me wrong; the setting and characters and premise were enough to keep me engaged. The references to religion weren't heavy-handed or out of place and t [...]


    26. I’ve read two Christian literature books that were available free from the Kindle for iPhone now and I think the low ratings I’ve given for both books isn’t so much because Christian literature is bad as it is that the books that are free on the Kindle for iPhone are bad. There’s no way around it: this is just stupid, not very well-done chick lit. I do think it’s interesting to read a book whether a main character really believes in God and has faith though, so maybe I’ll try to hunt [...]


    27. This was entertaining enough, but not something I'm rushing out to get the next one. I think it's supposed to be Christian, but the only aspect of that is having one character who is Christian. The story of 4 young women sharing a Craftsman bungalow and fixing it up, gives us an ethnically and socially diverse group of characters. My biggest problem was with the extremely abrupt ending, just screaming to have the reader go out and get book 2. It seemed like the book just stopped, similar to read [...]


    28. I think Im supposed to write a review. So this is Christian Chic lit folks, surprisingly this one isn't exactly preachy, sure theres Megan the all around token Christian girl who some accuse of being too much of a Mary Sue. I disagree, she may be a goody two shoes but she is far from Mary Sue, she is flawed just like the rest of us because hey were only human. I really did like this as a light read and plan on continuing the series for now


    29. Four girls (three renters and one landlord) live together at 86 Bloomberg Place. All four girls come from different backgrounds and each one has a reason for striking out on their own and starting over. The three renters, Megan, Anna, and Lelani, all get along, but their landlord, Kendall, is another story (vain, shallow, selfish). This book leaves some loose ends, which will probably resolved in forthcoming books. (I think there are four books planned.)
