I have spotted The List on NetGalley already in November or December last year and my gut feeling told me it is going to be a great read. But because I like my great reads to be in paperback I didn't request it then and waited for my physical copy to arrive. And well, let me tell you, it was absolutely worth the wait and my gut feeling didn't disappoint me. It was BLOODY BRILLIANT read, for sure one of my must - reads in 2014.

The List is about Phoebe who, I'm not afraid to tell, is one of the best characters ever. She is celebrating a New Year and has not totally recovered from a break - up with her boyfriend Alex. She decides to write a New - Year Resolutions List but doesn't want it to be abandoned two days later, so her List is going to be a little different this time. With a help of her friend Lucy she creates a List of 10 Things that she wants to try in the bedroom department . It is a very daring List and Phoebe is going to complete it, no matter what.
There are really different things on the list but I'm not going to tell you exactly what, I don't want to spoil your reading! Just let me tell you that you are for a real treat there and that the things are a real game, very innovative (well, for me at least), very interesting, and the situations that Phoebe puts herself into because of her List are sometimes ridiculous and always scream fun, fun, fun. I don't know if it was Joanna's intention but I laughed out loud reading how Phoebe adapted to all the new situations around.

I loved Phoebe. Simple as that. She is my kind of girl and I could imagine her as my new best friend. She is as normal as a chick - lit heroine can be but she is different in many ways.

I've just finished reading The List and I couldn't put it on my bookshelf without giving it the praise it deserves first.
I love this book for a great number of reasons; Joanna has a real gift for creating characters that feel familiar yet fresh. She has managed to capture Glasgow so well I feel that bumping into Phoebe or another character is a real possibility.
The main protagonist, Phoebe, is a wonderfully neurotic charmer that has a brilliant witty view on things; it really shines through and often had me nodding in agreement to her musings. I was hooked at the first sentence.
The book is hilarious and a 'Raiders of The Lost Ark' reference had me laughing so much I felt a little light headed after it. I'm still giggling at it now.
Sex and swearing, there is an abundance of both this book; the sex is messy, funny, raunchy and best of all believable. Not once did I feel either was over the top, unnecessary or cringe worthy. This isn't a shopping list she's made after all.
The book is written in a very informal tone and is presented as a journal so the swearing isn't a problem and I feel the fantastic dialogue between the characters and Phoebe's inner thoughts wouldn't be as personal without it.
The relationships in the book develop naturally and by the end I was happy, touched, satisfied and smiling at the conclusion.
Saddened that I wouldn't be reading any more of Phoebe's adventures though.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an insightful, funny, naughty, light-hearted book.
I will definitely be buying from this author again.

Oh my giddy aunt, I bloody LOVE Phoebe! I want her to be my best friend. The List was a serious test of my willpower - I wanted to devour it in one sitting, but I also couldn't bear for it to end so I had to ration myself and only read a bit at a time.

It's chick-lit, but the really good type. It's not all namby-pamby romance and twee middle-class shenanigans. It's hilariously irreverent, bravely bolshy, brilliantly lewd and has one of the highest feel-good factors I've ever read. Seriously, this book put me in such a good mood. Improved my sex life too! Oh yes. The List has the best approach to sex. It approaches it as an adult, but one who's not a mire of hang-ups. It says 'Let's be grown up about this. Sex feels good, and if you step a little out of your comfort zone you'll probably find it can feel even better!' It's not erotica - there's too much comedy for that. It's raunchy and fun though.

I've decided I like books that are split up into a number of things. 16 Things I Thought Were True was another recent good read, and 13 Little Blue Envelopes was another. It's not that I need an easy paint-by-numbers story, it's just that there's just something fun about progressing through the list. Maybe I'm a list geek. Also, it's set in Glasgow, but not in a gritty, Trainspotting type way. More a modern-but-down-to-earth city sort of thing. And don't worry, it's not written in a phonetically Scottish way or full of unpronouncable slang, either. It's just Scottish in an excellent sense of humour, ballsy and outgoing way.

Now up until this point I was only about two thirds of the way through the book. I was just so excited about it that I had to write about it. I have to admit that after that point it did go a bit more standard chick-lit, but it was still really good.
