Today I am sharing my review for the brilliant debut The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary, this is a superb feel good read that once you pick it up you will just want to keep reading!
I have seen so many wonderful reviews for The Flatshare that I had to pick it up and what a brilliant book!
Tiffy is a wonderful larger than life character with a quirky dress sense who is trying to move on and overcome her emotions from her previous relationship and find somewhere affordable to live. Whilst Leon is battling just to keep his head above water, working constant night shifts and trying to help his brother and feeling like he isn’t getting anywhere.
I loved the whole concept of this story and how it just jumps from the page, you quickly get to know how lovely Tiffy is and how her and Leon in the most unlikely of circumstances start to forge a friendship through post it notes and leftovers.
An emotionally charged read that will keep you reading into the early hours of the morning as you just have to know what comes next for these wonderful characters. This book is like a virtual hug and I absolutely loved it!
Tiffy and Leon share a flat
Tiffy and Leon share a bed
Tiffy and Leon have never met…
Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.
But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven’t met yet, they’re about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window…

About the Author
Beth studied English at university before going into children’s publishing. She lives as close to the countryside as she can get while still being in reach of London, and wrote her first novel, The Flatshare, on her train journey to and from work.
She is now writing novels full time, and if she’s not at her desk, you’ll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea, and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).
A superb debut that I absolutely loved and I can’t wait to share my review for her upcoming release The Switch with you!
