REVIEW: Giovanna Fletcher's "Some Kind Of Wonderful"!

Lizzy and Ian have been a couple since their first day at university. Now, after celebrating a decade together, everyonethinks they're about to get engaged. A romantic escape to Dubai is the perfect moment, but instead of the proposal Lizzy hopes for, Ian reveals he's not sure he even wants her anymore.

Lizzy is heartbroken. But through the tears, she realises this is her chance to seize the opportunities she missed as Ian's other half. But what does she want? How much of her is really Lizzy, and how much was Ian's influence? Determined to discover who she is at heart, Lizzy sets out to rediscover the girl she was before - and in the meantime, have a little fun . . .

My Review: (Possible spoilers???)This book to me was like a self-healing book. Something I believe that anybody needs if they feel they've hit rock bottom when their relationship falls apart. It reminds you that it's not the end of the world and that it's not the end of everything. That relationships actually take up a small fragment of who you are. This book screams: You've Got This! And I love that.

I ADORE Lizzy! I thought she was brave and to be honest, hated Ian from the start anyway. She don't need him. And I love how she stepped out of her comfort zone and tried new things in her process of "finding herself again". I like that she rebuilt a friendship that was technically falling apart when she didn't even realise it. And also, I love that she finally learned to depend on herself when things went shit, rather than someone else.

Amazing book! So sad it ended.

And I've decided that I wanted to start a book club, to encourage both you guys and myself to read! I love reading, I used to be a major bookworm but with work and exercise, I've slowly lost that. So if you're up for it - let me know!!
