My Review of Five Go Glamping by Liz Tipping

Hi! Well, I've been very busy reading and this is the 3rd book I have read in a month! That is a lot for me! So, here is my review for Five Go Glamping by Liz Tipping/

What They Say:

Glamping Check list
Festival tickets
Double check best Instagram filter
Avoid thinking about work/Connor/five year plan!!
A four day break from her hectic life to relax in the countryside and hang out at a local festival (for free!) is just what Fiona Delaney needs. With her best friends, great tunes and a cool looking hat her Instagram shots are going to look A-Mazing!
Until suddenly glamping starts to feel a lot more like camping and Fiona’s in desperate search of a comfy chair, wi-fi and a chilled glass of wine. But when she finally makes it to the local pub she discovers this trip could be more than just a holiday, it might just change her life forever…

What I Say:

As I said in my previous post about this book, it intrigued me simply due to the fact that it was about Glamping and there was mention of a yurt. That's it. And then I started chatting to Liz, the author and I became more and more excited to read it. I was able to follow and join in Liz's excitement as publication day approached and that was so much fun for me!

Five Go Glamping is Liz's debut novel. I would say that you can tell it's a debut but I don't mean that in a negative way at all. I fully believe that Liz will perfect her skills (and skills she has!) and become a very strong and accomplished storyteller. She is a natural with character development, her dialogue flows smoothly and naturally and the little cliff-hangers are just suspenseful enough to hold your attention and keep you wondering.

Fiona is such a normal girl. She's clumsy, a bit ditzy, a worrier, a planner and a hopeless romantic. She's also grounded, loyal and sweet. Her friends Sinead, Steph and Kirk are so likeable. They are a great bunch and were easy to follow. We also met Weird Beard and Crazy Trousers, who were both bonkers and so fun! Not forgetting Sam, who was adorable and sweet!

The adventures of this gang made me laugh, cringe and swoon just a little. I loved the glamping idea and they yurt they stayed in sounded so cushy! I was a bit jealous! I can't wait to get to a festival like that with our bus!

All in all, I can honestly say I loved this book! It ended just the way I hoped for! I would love there to be a follow up one day. Maybe Six Plus One Go Glamping? Haha!

This is a sweet, funny and relatable story from an author I predict a bright future for!   9.5/10

Five Go Glamping is available from Carina UK now!
Thanks to Carina and Netgalley for my e-copy of this book 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…
