I was so excited to see Anna Bell was releasing another book as I love her style of writing. She tackles real life issues but with a twist of comedy and a lovely light hearted feel.
In this story Izzy is trying to escape real life through her Instagram account and I think this is a brilliant reflection of the impact of social media and how everything is filtered to perfection. I love the characters and themes created in this book and kept picking it up every chance I had to read a few more pages.
A book that was a pure joy to read that kept me entertained from the offset and made me laugh and cringe throughout. Another brilliant read from an author I love that is the perfect balance of emotions to leave you smiling as you reach the end.
Book BlurbA fabulously funny, feel-good novel that will make you laugh until you cry, for anyone who’s ever presented a perfectly-filtered life online to hide the unglamorous reality.
Izzy Brown has always dreamed of being an Instagram influencer. So when her colleague and fellow Instagrammer Luke suggests they ‘fake date’ to boost their profiles, Izzy says yes – against her better judgement.
Now Izzy’s profile tells the story of a confident, glamorous thirty-something with the perfect boyfriend, and her follower numbers are shooting upwards. So what if Izzy can’t stop bickering with Luke, his habit of checking his quiff in every single mirror is driving her insane, and behind the scenes she’s hiding a secret heartache? Everyone tells a few fibs on social media, right?
But when Izzy runs into Aidan, the mysterious stranger who saved her the day her world fell apart two years ago, major sparks start to fly between them. Izzy’s sure she can have the online success she’s always dreamed of, whilst continuing to fall in love – and heal her heart – in real life. After all, Aidan doesn’t use social media… what could possibly go wrong?
