Book Review: The Year of Saying Yes Part 2 by Hannah Doyle
After absolutely loving the first part of The Year of Saying Yes, I was really looking forward to follow Izzy in her new dares and I can already tell you that she did not disappoint at all:
Title: The Year of Saying Yes Part 2
Author: Hannah Doyle
Published: January 12th 2017 by Headline
Blurb: Join Izzy on her journey from January blues to joy. Hannah Doyle's THE YEAR OF SAYING YES will make you dirty-laugh, feel warm and fuzzy, and rediscover life's magic - all thanks to one little word: yes. Fans of Lindsey Kelk, Mhairi McFarlane and Lucy-Anne Holmes, you're in for a real treat.
The second of four exclusive part-serialisations of THE YEAR OF SAYING YES by Hannah Doyle. Izzy's one-in-a-million story continues...
Welcome back! It's Izzy (or should I say New Izzy) reporting for duty. It's time for Part Two of my 'Year of Saying Yes'.
Thanks to your amazing challenges and fabulous feedback, I've been up to all sorts over the past few months. Drumroll please...
- I asked a total stranger for his number (what can I say, he was hot and wearing a pirate's hat)
- I modelled for a life drawing class (yes, starkers!)
- And somehow I performed on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury *gulp*
All this gallivanting around means that the new, improved me is in full flow. And guess what? For the first time in forever I have an actual LOVE LIFE, with a real-life man! But in between the fun and frolics there's been a whole lot of #drama.
Buckle up, guys, we're in for a bumpy ride...
Review: Izzy's story has been such a great surprise! I first downloaded the first part because it was free and I had so much fun following her first dares that as I soon as I finished reading it, I immediately pre-ordered the other 3 parts. I was a bit afraid that the second part would not keep the fast paced and super fun writing of the first part but I had no reason to be afraid. The story progresses at the perfect pace with us getting to know the New Izzy and enjoying her latest adventures.
In this part, Izzy's love life gets a bit more complicated. She went from no men in three years to kind of juggling two at the same part. I definitely have a favourite on this combo but after the ending of this part I really have no idea how the story will go. And I cannot wait to discover it!
I really enjoy reading about Izzy and her group of friends. She is such a positive presence, with the perfect touch of naiveté, which makes her end up in the most hilarious situations. I also like how their friends support her with her challenges but also with her new more confident persona. It really inspires me to say yes to new things, you never know what's waiting for you around the corner.
