‘Made me scream laughing. I enjoyed it SO much’ Marian Keyes

‘Have you ever messed up so badly you had to leave the country? This feelgood journey contains one of the best vagina jokes ever. We didn’t want it to end’ Heat Magazine

Alice is turning thirty and is stuck in a rut. Her friends are all coupling up and settling down, while she’s still working as a temp, trying (and failing) not to shag her terrible ex, getting thrown out of clubs, and accidentally sexting her boss…

She decides to throw caution to the wind and jets off on a round-the-world adventure to #FindTheFun and find herself. Of course, she’s no more likely to find the answer to true happiness on the beach in Thailand than she is at the electric beach in Tooting, but at least in Thailand there’s paddleboard yoga.

Can Alice find happiness on her travels? Or is she more likely to lose herself all over again…?

So funny-a must read! Oh my goodness I could not put this book down, it made me laugh, it made me feel and it quite simply made me keep turning the pages until I had had my fill-I just loved it.Alice is such a great character because she is so easy to relate to. We have all been there, wondering where our life is going and trying to do something about it when it just isn’t going where we want it to. I loved Alice’s decision making process and I loved her view of herself. I think a lot of us would…

Glad I managed to finish it. I just didn’t like the protagonist in this book. She was selfish, self absorbed and ungrateful. She ran away from her problems and the way she explained her actions to herself was just awful. The book is just full of her whining. It was a struggle to finish it. I did like the acknowledgements. That was the funniest part. I also liked how it illustrated how people gloss over the crap parts of their life on online blogs and how different the reality actually is.
