There are six months left of Emma Reiss’s twenties. . . and she has some unfinished business.
Emma and her friends are about to turn thirty, and for Emma it’s a defining moment. Defined, that is, by her having achieved none of the things she’d imagined she would.
Her career is all wrong, her love life is a desert and that penthouse apartment she pictured herself in simply never materialised. Moreover, she’s never jumped out of a plane, hasn’t met the man she’s going to marry, has never slept under the stars, or snogged anyone famous – just some of the aspirations on a list she and her friends compiled fifteen years ago.
As an endless round of birthday parties sees Emma hurtle towards her own thirtieth, she sets about addressing these issues. But, as she discovers with hilarious consequences, some of them are trickier to tick off than she’d thought.
Over the past few months I have only just started to read Jane Costello books. So I am slowly making my way through them.
The Wish list I could especially relate to as this past year I have turned the BIG 30.!!!!
This was a very entertaining read with many laugh out loud moments ( do not read on public transport as you will laugh out loud) right from the prologue it grabbed my attention and had my attention the whole way through! The camping disaster being my favourite part and had me laughing the most. Like other book bloggers I also think its shame this is a standalone book as I would love to see how the characters end up
Yet another delightful funny read from the very talented Jane Costello
