Hello everyone! Today I'm back with another SassyBooks post! This month's book club read was It's Not Me, It's You by Mhairi McFarlane(sometimes I wish I made Youtube videos so that you could hear how great that name sounds in a Scottish accent) which is a chick lit stye book about a girl who discovered that her fiancé had been cheating on her and decided to move from Newcastle to London. It had been gaining a lot of attention in the book blogging community for being different from the average chick lit book. And I definitely wasn't disappointed!
This book makes for a very quick and easy read. I read it on Kindle because it was much cheaper and I felt like I was constantly swiping across for a new page. The story moved really quickly and all the characters were a lot of fun. I did find that at times the main character, Delia, kind of fell into that 'trying to be really cool and quirky with my weird fashion because I'm not like the other girls' stereotype and I did find myself getting kind of worked up by that at times but I don't think it was enough to make me seriously dislike the book. This book was also laugh out loud funny at times which is something really special. There have been a few books that I've found really funny but they've never made me actually laugh out loud or even smirk! On the whole I found this book to be a lot more positive than your average romance story which was really nice and it's kind of changed my mind about them.
Next month's book is going to be: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo. This is a non fiction book all about decluttering. Both Charlotte and I have agreed that we both have too much stuff and could really do with downsizing so hopefully this book will be just what we need. If you want to join in with the book club then you can read the book and publish your review on or before the last Tuesday of the month(March 29th). We hope as many of you can get involved as possible!
Have you read It's Not Me, It's You? What did you think?
