Description:

Join Izzy on her journey from January blues to joy. THE YEAR OF SAYING YES by Hannah Doyle will make you dirty-laugh, feel warm and fuzzy, and rediscover life’s magic – all thanks to one little word: yes. Fans of Lindsey Kelk, Mhairi McFarlane and Lucy-Anne Holmes, you’re in for a real treat.

The first of four exclusive part-serialisations of THE YEAR OF SAYING YES by Hannah Doyle.

Dear Readers

It’s drizzling outside, which totally matches my #currentmood. Pigs in blankets, all the mince pies and a festive Baileys or five are distant memories. You know the drill – it’s January. Everyone’s banning booze (terrible idea) or cutting carbs (impossible). To add to the misery pile, my plans to seduce the man of my dreams at the stroke of midnight flopped spectacularly.

I’m Izzy. I don’t just need a New Year resolution, I need a whole new life. And I need YOU. My dreary life is about to get a total makeover – it’s my ‘Year of Saying Yes’. And this is where you come in. It’s up to you to #DareIzzy. I’m saying yes to your challenges, no matter how nuts, adventurous or wild they are. The sky’s the limit – I’m at your mercy, readers!

Wish me luck. I have a feeling I’m going to need it.

Love

Izzy x

Don’t miss Part 2 of Izzy’s adventure, where Izzy is challenged to ask a total stranger for his number, pose naked for a life drawing class and, wait for it… perform at Glastonbury!

My Thoughts & Review:

Initially I was hesitant to read this, when I see that a book is split into smaller editions I would steer clear and wait until all of them have been published so I can read them back to back or wait to see if they are grouped into one book, but when this popped through the letterbox I was intrigued.  The description sparked my interest and before I knew it I’d read almost half of the novella in one sitting.  Thankfully part two is out 12th January (so if scheduling has worked then it’s out TODAY!  *dashes to Amazon to buy next instalment*)

Izzy is a fun character, she’s one that many readers will be able to relate to and share in her misery (and have a few giggles) when life throws her a curve ball.  The supporting characters so far seem to be likeable and realistic.

Hannah Doyle writes beautifully, the flow of her writing pulls the reader in and ensures they are entertained the whole way through, the wit and humour in her writing giving you no option but to fall in love with the book and characters.

You can buy a copy of The Year of Saying Yes Part 1 here  and then join me in buying Part 2 straight after!
