Have you ever shown up to Sunday brunch still smelling of Saturday night ?chosen bed, Netflix and pizza over human contact? Stayed in your mould ridden flat because it’s cheap ?
Meet your spirit animal , Ellie Knight .Her life isn’t turning out exactly as she planned. She hates her job , her friends are coupling up and settling down and her flatmates are just plain weird.
Some people might say she’s a hot mess but who really has their sh*t together anyway? For fans if fleabag and girls this is a fresh and funny coming of age story with a single girl heroine that will speak to millennials everywhere .
Firstly a big thank you to elaine at Orion for my copy to review
I read this in one swift gulp .
I absolutely loved it and I guarantee woman from all walks of life will be able to relate and identify with Ellie.
Her tales of dating are hilarious real and so entertaining .
As a single woman im certainly not without a horror story or 2 and this book will reassure many that it’s OK to not have it all together.
There’s so many pressure on women to have everything and this is a big fingers up to all of that and loudly saying a woman doesn’t need a man to be happy !!
As much as this is a hugely funny tale it also examines family dynamics and how they come together in hard times. I loved reading about her dad who’s such a character . The relationship they have is heartwarming .
Ellie discovers who she really is and what she wants from life .
A brilliant laugh a minute modern tale of the trials and tribulations of the young woman of today’s world .
Will you join Ellie and announce that you are a hot mess?
