Flatshare - Book Review

As soon as I started reading I was hooked

I picked the book up somewhat reluctantly. I'm not one to follow any trends, in fact I often do anything to avoid trendy things. It had also been described as up-lit, which I didn't really like the sound of; it made the book seem shallow and fluffy. 

As soon as I started reading I was hooked. Not only is Beth's writing super- easy to absorb,  she is also great with characters. I would go as far as to say I don't think I've rooted for two characters as much as these two; they were quirky, unusual, different and complex - not shallow at all. 

However, what I loved most about it is that while uplifting, this book has a bite and under the surface is lingering a darker tale that is handled beautifully. It talks and brings up such an interesting, relevant and important topic that I feel every women needs to read this, because I am sure we will all recognise pieces of ourselves in this story.   

I honestly thought it was brilliant and I still find myself thinking about the characters, days after I finished the book. It's a joyful ride for sure with a bite that really gets you thinking.
