Sometimes all you need is a little push…
Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Katie Marsh and Marian Keyes, Olivia Beirne’s The List That Changed My Life takes its readers on an hilarious and heart-warming journey of a lifetime, showing us what it means to really be alive.
Georgia loves wine, reality TV and sitting on the sofa after work. She does not love heights, looking at her bank account, going on dates, or activities that involve a sports bra. And she will never, ever take a risk.
That is, until her braver, bolder, big sister finds out that she won’t be able to tick off the things she wanted to do before turning thirty, and turns to Georgia to help her finish her list.
With the birthday just months away, Georgia suddenly has a deadline to learn to grab life with both hands. Could she be brave enough to take the leap, for her sister?
And how might her own life change if she did?
What an absolutely fabulous debut novel!
I loved Georgia and what I loved even more was the relationship that she and her sister Amy have. If anything I was so envious. These two have got a great bond though at times it is pushed to the limits.
The list of things that Amy gives her sister to do, I have to admit there wasn’t many that I would have wanted to do. Not that Georgia does either for that matter. The majority of them make for fun reading though as she works her way through them.
The story is very much a mix of romance and sisterly love and how far you would go for the ones you love. At times it does get really emotional and I would have to stop to wipe away the tears but I would happily shed them all over again as it was such a great read.
The List That Changed My Life is a wonderful debut which I really think will change your life, or at least have an impact on it. It gives you food for thought, of which, whilst at times emotional, was a fun and entertaining read. Very much looking forward to more from the author.
