The first of four exclusive part-serialisations of THE YEAR OF SAYING YES by Hannah Doyle.

Dear Readers

It’s drizzling outside, which totally matches my #currentmood. Pigs in blankets, all the mince pies and a festive Baileys or five are distant memories. You know the drill – it’s January. Everyone’s banning booze (terrible idea) or cutting carbs (impossible). To add to the misery pile, my plans to seduce the man of my dreams at the stroke of midnight flopped spectacularly.

I’m Izzy. I don’t just need a New Year resolution, I need a whole new life. And I need YOU. My dreary life is about to get a total makeover – it’s my ‘Year of Saying Yes’. And this is where you come in. It’s up to you to #DareIzzy. I’m saying yes to your challenges, no matter how nuts, adventurous or wild they are. The sky’s the limit – I’m at your mercy, readers!

Wish me luck. I have a feeling I’m going to need it.

My Thoughts:

Move over Bridget Jones there’s a new girl in town!

Izzy is a fabulous character. She’s a secret red head whose year ahead is going to throw her into turmoil.

I really loved the idea behind this novel. A new year always see us making new year resolutions that, come on, none of us really stick to. I think a lot of us have got bored with it. The author has come up with a fresh new idea, or should I say Izzy’s work colleagues, where readers dare Izzy to try something new. To start with the dares are fairly tame but I have a feeling as the books go on they will become a lot more harder and daring.

The novel is split into four novella style books. I’m not always usually a big fan of this as I am not the most patient of people but the release dates between all four are not that long. I also know that I have something fun to look forward to.

The Year of Saying Yes is a fabulous and fun read. Izzy is someone that readers can relate to and through her life disasters we get to have a laugh at her expense. She is a sassy and slightly wacky character that I was instantly drawn to and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
