The Serial Dater’s Shopping List – Morgen Bailey

Izzy is a journalist who usually writes a technology column for a local newspaper. Her somewhat-intimidating boss William sets her the task of dating thirty-one men, via an internet dating site, all within a month, and writing about it for the paper.

Having an active, though fruitless, social life with her friend Donna, Izzy knows what she wants in a man, so creates a shopping list of dos and don’ts and starts ticking them off as she meets the men.

Follow the ups and downs of the dating process including Tim ‘the Weeble’, whose date leads Izzy to see banoffee pie in a whole new light, Lawrence the super-skinny social worker, Felix with his bizarre penchant for Persian Piranhas, and ‘the music maestro but don’t talk about dead pets’ Jake.

By the end of the month, will Izzy have met Mr Right?



My review

When I saw the cover of this one combined with the title, I knew it was going to be a must read for me.

And it soooop was. I loved it from the very first capital letter until the very last full stop. I received some strange glances from my son when I was erupting with laughter, but I just could not help myself. Some parts were too funny to keep a straight face.

When I write a review I try to make it nice for people to read and it’s not always easy to find the right words to express your feelings. But then I see masterpieces like this book and I realize that the author must be nothing less than a true word fairy I really am in awe.

I would like to trade places for one day not because I am jealous of the succes but it must be wonderful to be able to make people forget their everyday life when engrossed in the book you wrote.

To make a long story short : the book was right up my alley. There was love, laughter and romance combined with quite a few home truths. A perfect read to forget everything around you wherever you are.

Thank you, Morgen Bailey and Book On The Bright Side Publicity & Promo.
