    LOVE this story! Humor, intrigue, a little romance. Great series starter!

    This is the second book I’ve read by M. Pax and I have to say I was wowed. Hetty is unlike many heroines one meets in books. She’s awkward, unsure of herself, too curvy (in her opinion), honest, and she loves donuts. Seriously, I was craving donuts the entire time. She’s also a geek. Many can relate to Hetty as she’s transitioning from college to real life. For me, real characters make the best characters. I want to get to know their flaws and fears. This is a fun story about a lovable c [...]

    It's Hetty Locklear's big day. She's graduating from college and starting her life as an adult. But when her diploma's in her hand, nothing changes. She's still sharing an apartment with her cousins, working at a convenience store, and eating too many sweets. Her only escape is through her fantasy worlds, but that's where the surprises in her life begin. Two new members join Hetty's online role-playing game and a gorgeous man at a bakery offers to help her find a job. Her estranged parents conta [...]

    Hetty Locklear is the perfect heroine for anyone who has ever felt like a misfit. Awkward and clumsy, Hetty worries about her weight, hates what she sees in the mirror, and feels completely unlovable. She wants her life to change after her graduation from the local community college, but has no idea how to make that happen.As Hetty struggles to become the adult she wants to be, her life does begin to change in ways she never could have imagined. She meets a gorgeous guy who stuns her with his in [...]

    A great start to what will surely be a successful series. I read this in two nights (in roughly 3 hours altogether!) and I liked every minute of it. Hetty is a character I think a lot of women can relate to. She does not see herself as beautiful at all, is a bit on the pudgy side, and a bit nerdy. Yet she has wonderful friends who see her as what she is - a beautiful, loyal friend. Eventually, she becomes involved with a man who sees her as the most beautiful person in existence; again something [...]

    Hetty is a real-world geeky girl trying to figure out her place in an adult world, while escaping the harsh realities by playing fantasy games with her friends. Mysterious events soon sweep her along a different path, one that challenges Hetty to rise above her preconceived notions of what it means to graduate from college and grow up.This is a fun beginning to a new series, filled with foibles and embarrassing moments for Hetty, as well as romance and triumph. Add in ghostly visitors, strange p [...]

    Excellent story. I love Hetty. In her quest to reinvent herself from chubby convenience store worker, she finds love, adventure, and truths about herself. Ms. Pax did an excellent job of blending women's lit with some sci-fi elements proving that not all stories have to come from a cookie cutter to be good.

    I won a copy of this book in the 2013 Blogger Book Fair.There were many aspects of this that I liked a lot, in particular the geek girl main character and her roommates, who spend all of their free time eating pastries and playing an online RPG that they've created themselves. The three of them have a solid, realistic friendship and its always nice to see such a thing portrayed (especially when it passes the Bechdel Test)! It was intriguingly hypocritical, though not really commented upon, that [...]

    Hetty Locklear soon discovers being an adult isn’t as magical as she’d hoped it would be in M. Pax’s The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear.Hetty Locklear is unlike any character I’ve ever read about. She’s awkward, a tad shy, and a bit lost on what she wants to do with her life, but she’s also a very cool geek, who’s very loyal. Her best friends have so much character and add to the storyline. And the men vying for Hetty’s attention make this novel a fun and sometimes quite steamy re [...]

    Donut-popping Hetty Locklear is one of the most self-doubting lovable heroines you'll ever meet, but who can blame her? Her own parents ditched her when she was still a young teen, just so they could go gallivanting after their weird Renaissance Fair dreams. When she finally walks onstage seven years later to get her college diploma, she has her fingers crossed that her less-than-stellar life will suddenly transform into something better. She expects magic.In hindsight, maybe she should have bee [...]

    This book by M. Pax took me by surprise, and was very different than what I expected it to be, (in a good way). The Renaissance of Hetty Loklear, is based on the life of a recently graduated college student, who due to her insecurities, prefers to live her life as an avatar, in the fantasy world she has created.Hetty's life is turned upside down, when she partakes on a journey to visit her estranged parents, who travel the Renaissance circuit. Strange events start to take place around her, when [...]

    Wow. From the blurb this was not entirely what I was expecting but it was amazing all the same. Hetty is a wonderful character. I love that she's this overweight, self conscious homebody that dabbles heavily in gaming. She is so different from a lot of young adult story leads and I loved her. I think the title is perfect as well. I like that renaissance alludes to her parents but is really about Hetty becoming an adult and coming into her own. The sci-fi aspects were great. It wasn't too terribl [...]

    Hetty Locklear is a very likable main character and I loved watching her grow up in this story. I have to say, I wasn't really into the 'sic-fi' aspect of the book, it felt off and didn't really match the rest of the book - just sort of patched on. I think it would have been a stronger story without it. I loved the writing and cared so much about the characters that I gave this 4/5 stars though. I got this book through a giveaway on this site and am looking forward to reading more of M. Pax's bo [...]

    Far OutA wonderful coming of age book with some freakish twists. You really don't know what to believe, just like the main character, Hetty. It's a page Turner that keeps you wondering at ever twist. Will Hetty get along with her estranged parents after not seeing them for seven years? Will, Hetty, help her human/ beast boyfriend? Or will she take the easy route with easygoing Nate? I can't wait to read the next installment to find out!

    Started off nice. Got to meet Hetty. And that she is pretty normal. Just gets caught up in weird stuff in her life is all. Love the fact that she has a body image problem and deals with it the way most other people do, ie tomorrow. The end does set this up as a series. curious were it will go next.
