Title: The Single Girl’s To-Do List
Author: Lindsey Kelk
Date: January 1st, 2011
Synopsis (from Goodreads): A hilarious and romantic standalone novel from the bestselling author of the I Heart series
Rachel Summers loves a to-do list:
• Great job
NOT on the list:
• Being dumped
Best friends Emelie and Matthew ride to her rescue with an entirely new kind of list – The Single Girl’s To-Do List. Rachel doesn’t know it, but it will take her on all kinds of wild adventures – and get her in some romantic pickles too. And then it won’t be a case of what but who she decides to tick off…
• Mr. bendy yoga instructor
• Mr. teenage sweetheart
• Mr. persistent ex
• Mr. deeply unsuitable
The Single Girl’s To-Do List gives Rachel the perfect heartbreak cure – and proves love is out there if you’re willing to take a chance.
When you read a standalone from the author who wrote an amazing book series, you can’t help but compare those two together.
At least, that’s what I do.
And this book, although it was fun and enjoyable, entertaining, girly and everything that a girl would want in a book, it was still not better the I Heart series.
However, it was really, really close to it (plus I admit I am extremly subjective here because I am just so attached to Angela Clark and Jenny Lopez and, in this case, that makes me a shitty reviewer, because a good reviewer should know how to separate the two).
Now, when I said how I feel, I think it’s time for me to actually review a book.
The Single Girl’s To-Do List is a chick lit in all it’s glory. It will make you smile and I highly recommend to pick this one up if you need something to boost your mood and make you forget the world around you.
It follows a woman named Rachel who got dumped by her boyfriend of 5 years. Instead of crying herself to sleep for the rest of her life, with the help of her two best friends, she makes a list of things she should do while she’s single.
I liked Rachel as a narrator. I think her sense of humor and approach to the story was great and she always kept the pace interesting.
Her best friends Emelie and Matthew are such a good friends, I liked them the best and if I could pull them out of those pages and make them my friends, I would do that in no brain!
I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan of Dan at the beginning, but, as the story progressed, I started to like him more and more.
The end of the novel wrapped up differently then I tought it would, but I ended up liking it that way along with the message it carried.
All in all, if you’re looking for a quick read that will make you laugh and remind you how fun reading actually can be, this is the book to go for!
