Hello my loves,
Happy Monday. How are you all? I bet you’re shocked that there’s another blog post up but I am finally better so this week we are having a post everyday! How crazy is that.
Tonight’s blog post is one I have been very excited to share with you. I was very kindly gifted this book by Sophie Tanner herself to review and as soon as I received it, I read it within a day and I have re-read it twice since. Sophie added a very cute card with a little message for me too which I thought was a super cute touch.
Before I start with my review, let me tell you what the book is about.
Reader, I married ME! What’s it about?
Chloe Usher has just broken up with the love of her life. All her friends urge her to find another man before she disappears down the slippery slope to spinsterhood. After a particularly messy date and several gins, she decided that she doesn’t need an ‘other half ‘ to complete her and announces that she is going to marry herself.
In the sober light of day, Chloe finds herself thrust firmly into the public eye to the embarrassment of her friends and family. Planning her wedding solo takes Chloe on a bumpy journey of self-discovery, as she realises why wish your life away waiting for ‘ the one ‘ when YOU are, in fact, the one?
Reader, I married ME! What did I think?
I could not put this book down and I haven’t had that reaction since reading Harry Potter! I related to Chloe and her drama filled love life and it hit me hard when she realised even the people close to her can stab her in the back. Without giving too much away, I think Ant is a total wanker, he reminded me a lot of my ex actually and I think that’s why I had this hatred for him. Linda is someone I would never ever want to be around, I think I would end up making her choke on a piece of bread or something posh people like to have out on the table for little snacks. Verity reminds me a lot of my old friend, I was a bit like Sim and was a little lost dog who wouldn’t dare stand up for myself, that was until I became Chloe.
This book had me laughing out loud, especially when it came to throwing drinks, it had me making notes on things that I should be focusing on even though I am in such a happy relationship and it made me fall in love with myself all over again. Self love is a journey that we are all on and it doesn’t take just a few things for us to be like Chloe and fully embrace ourselves, I get that it takes time. Following Chloe’s journey of self doubt, being blamed for situations that are not her fault and being shat on my her roommate (not literally) it really did feel like I was going through my own journey.
This definitely opens your eyes to thinks that we so often miss in our absentmindedness or thinks we are just blind to seeing in general. I know how much you all love Self care and how many of you have been on that journey of discovery with me, which is why I jumped at the chance to read and review Sophie’s book.
It is well written and a book that you can pass on for others to read and they’ll find the right message from it too. I whole-heartedly recommend this book, to those of you who like a giggle while reading, to those of you who love books about self care and to those of you who may need something with a bit of meaning behind it. This is a book that I will be passing on to my friends and family and I cannot wait to share it with them. Sophie is now on my authors to watch list!
