A few weeks ago I reviewed Part 1 and Part 2 of this hilarious story, today I'm finally reviewing the last two parts. Read my thoughts on them and on the whole story in general:
Title: The Year of Saying Yes (Part 3 and 4)
Author: Hannah Doyle
Published: 9th February 2017 by Headline
Blurb: THE YEAR OF SAYING YES by Hannah Doyle will make you dirty-laugh, feel warm and fuzzy, and rediscover life's magic - all thanks to one little word: yes. Fans of Mhairi McFarlane's WHO'S THAT GIRL, Sophie Kinsella's MY NOT SO PERFECT LIFE, Anna Bell's THE BUCKET LIST TO MEND A BROKEN HEART and Joanna Bolouri's THE LIST, you're in for a real treat.
The time has come... It's the final part of my 'Year of Saying Yes'. Excuse me while I wipe the tears from my eyes. #Emosh
After my crushing heartbreak, New Izzy has bounced back and is stronger than ever:
- I learned to be honest with myself (cue shocking public confession)
- I stood up for all of womankind - take that, cheating ex!
- Something spectacular and magical and wonderful happened - that's all I'll reveal on the matter for now ;)
What a hell of a year it's been. I've had highs, I've had lows, I've flashed my boobs to a crowd of 500 (but let's not dwell on that...) If I've learned anything it's that life is about taking chances. Now it's over to you - join me in saying yes! You never know what surprises life might have in store for you...
Love, as always,
Review: Last month I reviewed the first two parts of this story, which I absolutely loved. I've finally had the time to read the last two parts (I read Part 3 and I was so engrossed with the story that I continued into Part 4 straight away) so I'm gonna review these last two parts together, as they were as good the first two.
I have loved following Izzy around with her dares. I has been a real pleasure to see her grow and flourish as this better more confident version of herself. This story really reminds us how big a change we experience just saying yes more often. It certainly has inspired me to try new things!
And not also that, I have laughed so much with this story. Izzy is a characters that I will not forget in a long while. She is far from perfect but she knows how to win your heart. I loved how honest she was in these last parts, not only with her readers but with herself too and I am so happy for everything she achieved.
This is definitely a story that will put a smile in your face (more than once) and will inspire you to be bolder, stronger and more confident. With a really fresh and fun style, I felt like I really connected with this story. It was a fun touch to add hashtags to some moments (now that we leave surrounded by them) and I am already looking forward to more stories by Hannah Doyle.
