Review: The Single Girls To Do List by Lindsey Kelk

Rachel Summers loves a to-do list: boyfriend, flat, great job.

NOT on the list: being dumped.

Best friends Emelie and Matthew ride to her rescue with an entirely new kind of list – The Single Girl’s To-Do List. Rachel doesn’t know it, but it will take her on all kinds of wild adventures – and get her in some romantic pickles too. And then it won't be a case of what but who she decides to tick off: Mr. bendy yoga instructor, Mr. teenage sweetheart, Mr. persistent ex, Mr. deeply unsuitable.

The Single Girl’s To-Do List gives Rachel the perfect heartbreak cure – and proves love is out there if you’re willing to take a chance.

Review: I did read this book when it first came out but that was before I even had my book blog so this will be a review of my re-read of The Single Girls To Do List by Lindsey Kelk!

I adored this book when I first read it and reading it again it was just as funny and really just a relevant now as it was then. I listened to it on audiobook the second time around, the narrator was excellent and whilst i don't often laugh out loud when listening to an audiobook I certainly did whilst listening to this one. I loved getting to wallow with Rachel just as much as I enjoyed getting through the single girls to do list with her. When I first read this I was recently single and now I am married and yet i related to Rachel equally both times. 

Lindsey Kelk has a way of dropping throw away comments from characters of tiny little physical things that happen to those characters subtly into her novels that are just so funny and so entertaining and timed perfectly and this novel is just such a great example of that. This story is true to life and some parts are tough to read because a lot of people are really not very nice to Rachel throughout the book but the timing of those moments is just balanced so well with the adventures that she has and then funny comments from her best friend or funny things that she trips over or wears that it doesn't come across as in many way gritty or depressing. 

I had completely forgotten that there is an amazing character cameo in this book from someone from the I heart series and when she made her appearance I swear I cheered. It was wonderful seeing that character interaction with Rachel, it's like when you meet someone famous in real life, you feel like you know them when really they're on TV but you are so happy to see them. 

I definitely think I would reread this book again, especially now I have the new paperback edition as well as the audiobook. It was just such a great time and I listened in just 2 sittings. I loved all the supporting characters as well as the running toothpaste gag and now I just want to go away and immediately start another Lindsey Kelk novel. I highly recommend The Single Girls To Do List-then, now and always!
