31 days. 31 dates.
A laugh-out-loud comedy about the highs and lows of dating.
The cover and blurb sold this book to me instantly. It looks and sounds great so couldn’t wait to delve into it and I wasn’t disappointed.
Izzy lives on her own and works for a paper. I actually quite envied her life style. Coming and going as she pleases with no one to answer to. To be able to watch what she wants on television and when she wants, she certainly sells the single life to the readers. Well apart from the dating side of things that is.
I couldn’t think of anything worse than going out on 31 dates, especially in 31 days. I was exhausted just reading of Izzy’s numerous encounters. Apart from a few emails back and forth, Izzy has no idea what the men look like before turning up or much about them. I was just grateful that some of them weren’t some sort of mass murderers. Then again it might have made some of them a bit more interesting.
Being tall myself I felt Izzy’s pain when it comes to dating men of a certain height. Then again their height is the least of her worries! Some of the men she finds herself dating are quite nice and I was actually wishing that things may progress further with them. Others, well I was just so glad it wasn’t me having to sit and endure being in their presence. It does make for some fun reading though.
The Serial Dater’s Shopping List is very much a tongue in cheek read that was highly entertaining. It is perfect for readers that love books by authors such as Gill Simms. A definite must read this summer and one I will be recommending to all my friends.
My thanks to Bombshell Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
