I really enjoyed this story and the way it was written, there were some lovely scenes between the guardian angels and their charges, especially between Brian and Jack, but there were equally good scenes between the human characters and that is why this book was so good. The characters and the scenes were well written but what also came from this book was a lovely, joyful feeling. I don’t know the author did it but the book is full of warmth, it almost glows with it because there is so much of it. This is a lovely, light and happy story that will make you think about why you make the decisions you do and if, perhaps sometimes, you are getting a little extra help. This is a lovely story for any time of day or year but is perhaps best for dark, gloomy times when it will brighten everything and give you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Many thanks to the author and to Neverland Blog Tours for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Lets get down to what I thought, shall we?
‘Where is Emma Butler’s Life Plan?’, such an intriguing title don’t you think? I definitely thought so because I said yes to reading the book based on the title. I was so curious! A life plan? I know people sometimes have a ‘five year plan’, but I wasn’t entirely sure what a ‘life plan’ actually entailed. Luckily, not long into reading the book things began to make more sense. Only on the title front though, I was yet to delve deeper into life as an Angel.
The book is quite heavily based on the spiritual life because of the Angel’s, Heaven and what people might believe to happen after their own ‘recall’. You don’t need to believe in it to enjoy the story because it is such an extravagantly fun read, you’ll no doubt be laughing yet questioning your own life plan at the same time. I definitely did!
As the story develops you’re introduced to various Angel’s in Heaven, as well as multiple Guardian Angel’s. Every person in the story has a Guardian Angel to guide them through life and keep them safe without interfering in their life. I must say though, one Guardian Angel in particular, Brian, was described exceptionally well. His personality had such sass. I could imagine his stance and facial expressions as various situations unfolded. Very cleverly written.
‘Where is Emma Butler’s Life Plan?’ is a very well thought out book, which actually makes this review quite tricky to write because everything in the book linked to the final scenario. Nothing bad about the book, just the fact that I am being careful to keep the surprises for when you read it yourself!
I loved the diversity between the characters. Each one had such a memorable personality, several of them have stayed in my mind since I finished reading the book (I finished it 3 days ago). Although, as with any book, there is always one or two characters that you don’t quite ‘gel’ with, this book was no different. One in particular got me rather annoyed as his attitude was appalling. However, he made the book, if that makes sense?
In the book, Julia describes how everyone has a ‘life plan’, and the aim is to do everything that you set out to do before you get ‘recalled’. I’d be lying if I said that that didn’t get me thinking. Because it did. The fact that anyone could get ‘recalled’ at any moment, without so much of a warning is quite scary. But to go through life with the attitude of ‘ahhhh, I’ll do it later, plenty of time.’ is much scarier. Later could be ‘too late’ and unfortunately we don’t all have a Julia Wilmot to write us a different recall date on our life plans.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Emma Butler and her life plan. It was such a different type of book compared to anything I have read already. It put a fun spin on the dreaded ‘D’ word and everything associated to it. The Angel’s were brilliant and the storyline ticked multiple boxes for me in such a positive way.
Do I believe in Guardian Angel’s? I don’t know, 50/50.
Do I believe in Julia Wilmot and her debut novel? Yes, I do. It takes such talent to write a story involving such a diverse and maybe ‘taboo’ (in people’s eyes) subject, yet still make it an enjoyable read. I am rather looking forward to see what Julia has up her sleeve (or under her wing) for her next book!
In some strange mix up, they have discovered that she hasn’t completed any of her life goals with only one week of life left…or has she? This leads to a frantic week of Emma making decisions and acting in ways she finds completely confusing to herself. While the angels in heaven scramble to work out ways to not break free-will rules whilst still rail-roading Emma to do everything the want her to do Emma finds her life spiralling out of control.
When Jack is introduced to Emma, the battle is on to see if they can overcome the will of the angels and make a future with each other so that Jack’s life isn’t derailed aswell when Emma is recalled. Something they are both completely unaware of.
The idea that angels and spirits are guiding us through life is interesting and puts a different spin on the chick-lit genre. I found the idea that heaven runs like a disorganised office and God the overbearing CEO hilarious.
This book had chuckle-worthy moments, and some which were toe-curling with cringe for poor Emma Butler. It is a quick read and great for a rainy weekend on the couch.
Thank you very much to Julia Wilmot for a copy of the novel to review this book honestly for the blog tour.
