My Review of The Curvy Girls Club by Michele Gorman

I love Michele's books and have been looking forward to reading this for ages! I'm so glad I finally did!

What They Say:

Can the curvy girls have their cake and eat it?

Meet best friends Pixie, Ellie, Katie and Jane. Fed up with always struggling to lose weight, they start a social club where size doesn’t matter. Soon it’s the most popular place to be – having fun instead of counting carbs. And the girls suddenly find their lives changing in ways they never imagined.But outside the club, things aren’t as rosy, as they struggle with the ups and downs of everyday life.

In this funny, heart-warming read about normal women learning to love themselves, the curvy girls soon realise that no matter what life throws at them, together, anything is possible . . .

What I Say:

Well, Michele has done it again! The Curvy Girls are a fantastic group of friends who just want to feel normal in a society somehow dominated by skinny minnies. The slimming group they attend weekly makes them all feel rubbish about themselves so eventually they make a stand and quit. They set out on their own and start planning weekly activities and soon loads of people want to join in.

I loved Katie. She's a wonderful,  strong woman who knows her mind and works hard to get what she wants. Ellie is ber best friend and housemate and she is a warm, sweet, loyal friend. Pixie took me a while to warm to but I felt a bit sorry for her. That changed before the end of the book and I found myself admiring her determination. Jane was  lovely and easy to identify with and I cried for her. It's a great group and I wish I had friends like them!

The message in The Curvy Girls put out there is brilliant - Love yourself, no  matter what size you are. It's not easy sometimes but I think it's possible. I'm most definitely no size 12 but I walk everywhere, I do a dance class each week and I enjoy cooking healthy meals for myself and my fiancé.  He always makes me feel beautiful and some days I even believe him. The Girls have helped me feel better about how others see me too.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone woman who has ever struggled with her weight,  body image or confidence. 9/10.

Thanks to Michele Groman and Notting Hill Press for sending me ane-copy in exchange for my honest review.

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
