There's More to Life Than Cupcakes by Poppy Dolan
2 of 4 people found the following review helpful
I bought this because it was on offer and persisted to the end because I hate giving up on a book, but I got fed up with it less than half-way through. Ellie spends the whole book wondering if she's ready to have a baby and how will she know if/ when she is. There may be "more to life than cupcakes", but there really wasn't a lot to this book - Ellie likes baking, but there's not a lot about baking in it really (she doesn't actually make any cupcakes by the way).

Maths for Mums and Dads by Rob Eastaway

I am buying this book in paper format as a result, as it is otherwise a very useful aid for my work as an adult… Read more
Single Woman Seeks Revenge: Another Very Funny Rom&hellip by Tracy Bloom
I really enjoyed Tracy Bloom's second book. Suzie is a wonderfully feisty but flawed heroine who decides to exchange sympathy for vengeance in her newspaper agony column. At the same time she pursues her own revenge on the four loves of her own who let her down, leaving her single and apparently loveless in her mid thirties. Helped by her best friends, she holds her exes to account, but gets so caught up in seeing the worst in men that she almost misses her own chance for happiness.
I really enjoyed Suzie's plots, especially the one against the politician. This book had me sneaking upstairs to escape school holiday chaos and read another chapter or four on the quiet. Who Suzie ends up… Read more
