Inhaltsangabe

A Stylist must-read & a Red Magazine Best Book of 2018.

'Turning 30 is like playing musical chairs. The music stops, and everyone just marries whoever they happen to be sitting on.'

Who the f*ck is Tori Bailey? 

There's no doubt that Tori is winning the game of life. She's inspired millions of women to stick two fingers up at convention with her best-selling memoir, and she has the perfect relationship to boot.

But Tori Bailey has been living a lie. 

Everyone around her is getting married and having babies, but her long-term boyfriend won't even talk about getting engaged. And when her best friend Dee - her plus one, the only person who understands the madness - falls in love, suddenly Tori's in terrifying danger of being left behind.

When the world tells you to be one thing and turning 30 brings with it a loud ticking clock, it takes courage to walk your own path.

It's time for Tori to practice what she's preached, but the question is: is she brave enough?

The debut adult novel by best-selling author Holly Bourne is a blisteringly funny, honest and moving exploration of love, friendship and navigating the emotional rollercoaster of your 30s.

TW sexual violence/EDs

I wish this book would have come with a trigger warning for sexual violence and ED. There are pretty detailed descriptions of it although the author doesn't mention numbers. I feel like there are a lot of issues, not just these, that the book could have gone into more detail with but didn't. It's really disappointing at some points especially knowing from the author's other work that she is very good at dealing with difficult subjects in her stories.
I found it really hard to keep going sometimes because the situation the characters are in is hard to bear and the pace is too slow for my liking. The characters are very real and three dimensional though. I loved the ending but really hoped it would have not been this open and painful to get there. But maybe that was the point?! I really hope there is a part two though. I love Holly Bourne as a writer and would love to see how Torrie's life unfolds now that she's made it through.

teilweise sehr packend!

Hörbuch hat mir super gefallen. Zwischendurch mal gab es Längen, wenn zuviel überlegt wurde. Klar, die Beschreibung der Gedanken war meistens wirklich ein Plus des Buches, aber gelegentlich wurde es m.E. etwas langatmig.
Der Humor im Buch war richtig lustig und ungewöhnlich. Ich mochte schon 'Am I normal yet'. dachte dann, wie kann so eine in der Zusammenfassungen mega normal klingende Geschichte wohl überzeugen? ging aber. der Teufel steckt eben im detail... . klare Kaufempfehlung!
