Product Description

Product Description

For Lilah McCannon, life has taken a bit of a wrong turn. Engaged to a guy she is not in love with and stuck in a job with her tyrannical father as her boss, life has definitely not turned out the way she expected.

At twenty-five years old, Lilah knows that she has a simple choice: live the life she has created or change it.

Enrolling on a course at the local University, Lilah sets out with some clear rules to ensure her success at being a grown-up. No alcohol, no cigarettes, no boys, and no going home. But the last thing she anticipates is meeting Ben Chambers, the lead singer of a local band. With Ben, it’s instant, it’s hot, and it’s deep, but when Ben is offered the opportunity of a lifetime and it looks like his future lies on a different path to hers, Lilah has some heart-rending decisions to make.

With the academic year slipping by too quickly, Lilah faces a barrage of new challenges. Will she ever make it up the library stairs without having a heart attack? Can she handle a day on campus without drinking vodka? Will she ever manage to read a history book without falling asleep? Most of all, will she be able to make the ultimate sacrifice and learn The Art of Letting Go?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 18 Dec 2013
By Kel B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely adored this book.
This is written in a diary style and is very funny, full of British humour. I just loved Lilah's character and her drunken antics straight away and it made me wish I had experienced the friendships and lessons of uni life. It also has great supporting characters in her best friend Meredith and her twin brother Tristian 'the arse' who I ended up loving, and has a swoon worthy love interest.
Meet your new book boyfriend Benjamin chambers. Oh Ben, hot guitar playing lead singer in a band who is completely crazy about her from their first meeting... need I say more.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may want to give Lilah a shake like I did, but it's a brilliant read and I cannot wait for book 2 of the uni files.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book 25 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed The Uni Files by Anna Bloom. Very funny, original and believable, I love the way she writes. As a former student of Roehampton university, I loved the setting and the familiarity of student life! I can't wait to read the second book in the trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and loaded with British Humor 25 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Art of Letting Go is such a fun book and I did truly enjoy it. It is written in diary format, with entries from the protagonist, Delilah "Lilah,", chronicling her life during her first year at University, telling the tale of how she found the love of her life, Ben, and all the drama surrounding it. Lilah is quite the character. She is funny, likes to hang out and do a bit of the typical college partying with her friends, but her fears and insecurities keep her from committing to Ben completely. Ben is a total hottie, is in a band, and he is completely crazy about Lilah. They have a lot of fun together and the chemistry between them is electric, so there is quite a bit of "snogging" going on. There are some really steamy scenes, some funny times, and some serious ones. As Ben prepares to leave for the United States with his band, Lilah's anxieties increase. Lilah has a moment when the light bulb comes on and she truly realizes what letting go really means, and what it doesn't, and is determined to find Ben and tell him so, but she just may be too late.

The Art of Letting Go is a delightful novel that is filled with British humor, romance, great characters and secondary characters, and lots of fun. I really enjoyed this novel and I am really looking forward to what happens next.

5.0 out of 5 stars OHHHHHH WOW 23 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
For about 10 minutes after reading this all I could manage was "wow" whilst crying hysterically, I really needed a slap, to be told "it's not real". I was so drawn into this book, I felt as if I had lived and felt every feeling Delilah felt.

This book made me fall in love HARD, then broke my heart into pieces, I'm still not sure I can recover to be honest. It's actually taken me a few days to even talk about it or write a review because I was still "feeling" the book. (Don't be surprised I'm a nut job, we have all known for some time now).

Delilah is twenty-five and working with her father in a bank. She's been pushed into living a life she doesn't want. Engaged to be married to John who she isn't remotely in love with, but is being pushed into it by her parents. Delilah also happens to live with her twin brother Tristan, who she really does not get on with.

Delilah one day just has enough and ups and leaves work to then run away from home. Grabbing only some essentials (lots of books) she sets of to get a new job. Instead she finds herself enrolling at University doing a History Degree.

Being the one of the oldest students Delilah isn't overly confident when surrounded by young, slim and gorgeous eighteen year olds. She soon meets Meredith, one of her room-mates. They form a really lovely friendship and become very close.

Lilah (Delilah) decides to attend the Freshers ball and gets absolutely steaming drunk and using a wall to stop her from falling over she catches sight of the lead singer of the band playing. She is so drunk she is struggling to see and only using the one eye, she fears he may think she is winking at him. She heads off to get some fresh air and finds her way blocked by a pair of twinkling blue eyes, this my friends is Ben.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 27 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well what can I say, this book is very good indeed absolutely worth every penny, I've paid more for some shocking books on my kindle so this is a real treat. I love the flow of the story and found myself imagining myself to be in the story. Kind of makes me want to open up a bottle of Pinot and not stop until I'm at the end (of the book and bottle!).

Madly in love with Ben and next time I'm in putney I'll be checking out the boys to see if he does in fact exist but unfortunately I have my doubts :(

Cannot wait to download the second installment and see what happens with these loveable although slightly nutty people.

I've given it 5/5 but it I could I'd give it 11/10! A MUST read for all woman/girls who have ever dreamed a dream and just gone for it. Brings back happy memories :)

5.0 out of 5 stars UHHHLOVE! 25 Sep 2013
By ZPope
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would firstly like to thank Anna for sending me an advanced copy - well in advance - of her book The Art Of Letting Go - Year One. You cannot understand my excitement when she sent it to me. I have been wanting to read this book for months now, and when it arrived in my mailbox, I quickly finished my last book and got into the story of Ben and Lilah pretty much from the get go.

The Art Of Letting Go is definitely a book that deserves a place on your kindle and deserves your utmost time to devour everything inside of it. Anna has put blood, sweat and tears into this book to make it what it is - and that is a book that is just so refreshing to read, so different from other books that I have read. Firstly it is set in diary entries, dated and times too. This gives the book a sense of realism.

We have all had a diary once in our life and this helps Lilah deal with everything happening in her life - from leaving her job, going to university, falling in love and going through all the things that happen in the book. It's a great way to learn about everyone in the book. Secondly, Anna is spot on with her writing style. She uses sarcasm, she knows how to make you swoon in Ben and Tristan scenes, you will cry, you will laugh, you will get annoyed and it's a journey of overcoming obstacles and things put in Lilah and all the characters ways. How they overcome their first year of university.

I love Anna and I hope you will fall in love and read The Art of Letting Go too. It deserves a read and it truly is a book that is hard not to fall in love with :)
