I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Laura Kay is a writer and editor. She has an MA in American History from the University of Sheffield and now lives in East London with her wife and cats.
“You’re enough, yeah?”
El has decided this is going to be her year of wild things. She will leave her comfort zone and do one whole thing a month. After a rocky start, she moves to a house in the country with her best mates, Will, Jamie, and Ray. That is where things get complicated.
This was such a sweet story. I loved the humor mixed with the prose. The storytelling was seamless, and the character development was strong.
El was such a fun character. I loved her journey of getting to know herself and accepting that she is enough as she is. Ray was a solid character who had confidence and poise. Will was a steady presence, and Jamie was fun.
I loved the idea of living with a group of friends, and I loved the adventures they shared. The way the story unfolded felt authentic. The emotion was well played, and the build-up was realistic.
The last half of this book was beautiful. I loved the growth El goes through and the emotional path she embraced. This was a lovely story about believing in yourself and taking the plunge.
