    This is definitely something I would never, ever read in a million years but from what I can remember, it was so simple and funny. I remember it just being there and I ended up reading it more than once. I read it in a tone that almost seemed the author was taking the piss out of the MC and the British football elite culture too (which I am sure she actually was) and my God, it was hilarious.

    I thought this book was hilarious. I can't imagine any real WAGS would though. The story was interesting and the only thing that would have improved it would have been to follow up on meeting her father. I thought this book was hilarious.

    The funniest book I have ever read. Just a delight. Tracie appears superficial at first put soon grows into a lovely, rounded person who just wants to be a Wag so badly. Lovely book

    Not a book that I would've chosen myself but it was recommended to me and I'm glad it was. The Wags Diary is a surprisingly laugh out loud, very good, light hearted and fun read. The characters are all charming and likable and if you take it in the manner it was intended - tongue-in-cheek and not seriously you'll enjoy it.

    I own a copy of this book and have read it many times. I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did. I would recommend to those who like fashion and celebrity culture. It is a short read and I finished it in a day (I'm a slow reader overall... I have dyslexia but hey) I own a copy of this book and have read it many times.

    The WAG’s Diary is based on a footballers wife, .a.k.a. a WAG, named Tracie, and as the title suggests is her diary which follows her very eventful life! Tracie believes WAGs should follow certain rules/do certain things to be a good/successful WAG, and she certainly airs her thoughts in her diary about these. Initially, I found the book hard to get into as I didn’t really relate to the subject of the book (I’m far off being a WAG haha!), and I also found Tracie’s character very shallow and anno The WAG’s Diary is based on a footballers wife, .a.k.a. a WAG, named Tracie, and as the title suggests is her diary which follows her very eventful life!

Initially, I found the book hard to get into as I didn’t really relate to the subject of the book (I’m far off being a WAG haha!), and I also found Tracie’s character very shallow and annoying. However, I persisted with the book and I’m so glad I did. The further I got into the book and as certain events in the book happened I actually grew to like Tracie, and actually feel quite sorry for her, as you slowly find out why she is the way she is. The book also had a couple of turns that I wasn’t expecting, which doesn’t happen often in this genre of book as they tend to be fairly predictable. Overall, I thought the book was very funny and a light-hearted read, along with some moments of sadness. This book definitely gave me a ‘Bridget Jones’ kind of vibe. The ending left me wanting to know more about how Tracie gets on in the future and I was sad when I realised how it ended! But after research I’ve found it’s part of a series, so I will definitely be reading the next book in this series on books. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars, mainly because I found it a bit hard to get into at first, however I ended up very invested in the characters and the story, as hopefully my review has proven! If you love this genre of book, then it’s definitely worth giving it a read.

    The description says it all- it is light hearted and crazy. Tracy is the ultimate wag of all, wife of the captain, blonder than blonde, and dressed in micro minis. With a crazier mother, and a daughter that eschews all thing feminine, she has a family that is part of the team of teens that she is mom to. Writing to wannabe wags on how to be a wag has set her off on a path from which there seem to be no return. I had fun reading it, and so will you..

    This was brilliant and well written a truly laugh out loud book. Was a little hard to get into to start but really funny once i got into it. I loved seeing how she grew and she did develop but still be a bimbo at the same time

    This is such a funny read. Alison has magnified the public perception of the WAG and taken it to extremes.

    Despite my general obsession with celebrity, I don't have much interest in the WAGs. In case you're unaware of them, the WAGs are the wives and girlfriends of professional footballers. Victoria Beckham is their Queen (obviously), but there are loads of others, like Wayne Rooney's fiance Coleen McLoughlin and Alex Curran, wife of Steven Gerrard.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I thought that it would be bog standard chick lit but it was very funny and takes a side swipe at the world of the Wags. The main character is very likeable and is funny without meaning to be. It's definately the sort of book that you don't think that you would enjoy because of the subject matter but with the humour it is more than readable. I have just started the second book in the series A Wag Abroad and hope that I enjoy it as much. So far, so good. I was pleasantly surprised by this book.

    I really enjoyed reading The Wag`S Diary. Tracie Martin is a Wag (my first time hearing of the term). What a complicated life she is leading. Everything is strictly determined, all the fake tans, extensions, fake boobs, clothing etcetc. Being so naive must be easy to live. Not caring about anything except one`s apperance. Tracie is offered a chance to teach aspiring Wags first by writing a blog and then a book. She is surrounded by people who really care about her (Dean, Paskia, Nell - oh, poor I really enjoyed reading The Wag`S Diary. Tracie Martin is a Wag (my first time hearing of the term).

    This was an easy enough book to read and in places it was quite funny but the author just seemed to be trying too hard to be funny and to make her main character Tracie Martin as dim as possible. Tracie is a WAG - wife of Luton Town's captain Dean. She's head WAG and find herself upstaged by up and coming new WAGS. So she sets about writing a WAGS handbook! Definitely light and fluffy chick lit with some funny parts but on the whole with OTT and not very believeable characters.

    This book came free with a Glamour magazine, and the writing in Glamour is better :) WAGS are apparently British soccer players' wives, and Tracie Martin is a queen-- fake tan, fake hair, fake nails, fake boobs, but not a fake person somehow. Begins writing a handbook, finds out mum's secrets. Hard to take it seriously when it takes a serious turn because the writing is clumsy and ironic but not within a lasting context.

    I was first drawn to this book because the cover was super adorable. I have always been super lucky at impulse buying because of an adorable cover and its a fantastic read! The second thing was the title, it is so sweet :) This book is fairly small page wise compared to others on the market so it makes for a quick read. I thought it was hilarious and i was envious at first, what girl doesn't want the acrylic nails, the jewelry, the ugg boots. Cute, light hearted read and would recomend!

    I read this when I was like, 11, weirdly. Found it on one of those "take a book, leave a book" shelves in a hostel in Italy, on holiday. Same holiday I read, uh, Robin Hobb's "Golden Fool" and Mercedes Lackey's "The Wizard of London". I remember one scene really vividly, where the main character gets glitter in her eye when she's trying to have sex with her husband. In retrospect, not a great book for a preteen.

    The protagonist was just so annoying and I get that she was supposed to be stupidly funny, but really she was just stupid. Like it would be one thing if her articles were purposefully funny, but she kept going on and on about how she was being perfectly serious. I just don't buy the fact that her articles are insultingly funny and she's totally unaware.

    Though this book would be abit rubbish as WAG'S(wives and girlfriends for all non-British!) are dumb and I dislike most of them. However this book is a complete pisstake and Tracie is so loveable and silly that you can't help but like it. Makes you laugh a fair bit and I will be adding 'A WAG Abroad to my wishlist :) Though this book would be abit rubbish as WAG'S(wives and girlfriends for all non-British!) are dumb and I dislike most of them.

    This book came free with a magazine I bought in an airport - need I say more!? Completely tacky, no brain cells required and doesn't leave a lasting impression. A harmless read for a holiday book, wouldn't touch it with a bargepole ordinarily! This book came free with a magazine I bought in an airport - need I say more!?

    My only words are: literally no-brain chicklit! It's slow, it tries to be funny... But it doesn't succeed. I finished this only because I was on holidays & had nothing else to read. Was really glad when i finally finished it. Worst book ever in my opinion. My only words are: literally no-brain chicklit! It's slow, it tries to be funny... But it doesn't succeed.

    Not a book that I thought I'd like. It began quite shallow and after the first 20 pages I almost gave up on it. But I carried on and found that it wasn't such a bad read after all. The character becomes quite likeable during the story. Not a book that I thought I'd like. It began quite shallow and after the first 20 pages I almost gave up on it.

    The most ridiculous book ever! I needed something light and easy-to-read to get me back in the reading habit, and I picked it up during the world cup, so I thought it would be entertaining. However, the main character is so insanely stupid that it's not even funny. I wouldn't recommend this book. The most ridiculous book ever!
