Review: Five Go Glamping by Liz Tipping

Glamping Check list

Festival tickets
Double check best Instagram filter
Avoid thinking about work/Connor/five year plan!!

A four day break from her hectic life to relax in the countryside and hang out at a local festival (for free!) is just what Fiona Delaney needs. With her best friends, great tunes and a cool looking hat her Instagram shots are going to look A-Mazing!

Until suddenly glamping starts to feel a lot more like camping and Fiona’s in desperate search of a comfy chair, wi-fi and a chilled glass of wine. But when she finally makes it to the local pub she discovers this trip could be more than just a holiday, it might just change her life forever…

Review: a really cute story with some characters you'll love to love and some you'll love to hate. This was a fairly quick read, an ebook to carry with you and pick up when you need cheering up! I really liked The main character Fiona. At first I wasn't sure whether I would warm to her because she seemd a little weak but she really grew as the story went on and I ended up having a lot of respect for her. I liked the relationship that she had with her friendship group and that she realised that she was worth more than the situation she was currently in...

I really liked the dynamic of the friendship grou. I think for a book like this to work, a storing friendship group with varying personalities would have had to be written and Liz tipping has definitely succeeded in doing that! She has created some really funny sub characters and guest appearances and some really strong and believable main characters. I think this would definitely be a good book to read if you have ever been away for a weekend/holiday with a group of friends because I am sure you will be able to relate to some of situations they find themselves in. 

Fiona's relationship with her boyfriend is also very true to life. It has excellent observations on what can happen when you are so set on the road to a gal that you can't really remember why you wanted that road in the first place. As I said, this was a fairly quick read and I could definitely picture the places described in the novel. I think it would be an excellent funny ebook to have with you whilst you are getting away from it all over the festive period as it would provide some light relief from the stresses of the cold weather and and this busy time of year!
