Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up by Alexandra Potter
"I throughly enjoyed this book. Despite it being over 500 pages and thinking it will take a while I couldn’t put it down and read it over 2 days. Amazing"
Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up by Alexandra Potter
"This was a pleasant and easy read and whilst I liked it, I just didn’t love it. I get what the author was trying to do, but like another reviewer it did become a bit cliched as the book went on. I’m sure others will love it though. Thank you to NetGa" Read more of this review »

“...when you decide you want to be with someone forever, you want forever to start right now.”
Alexandra Potter, Do You Come Here Often?

“Forget men, I want to marry my MacBook. It’s dependable, reliable and you can even go shopping with it.”
Alexandra Potter, You're The One That I Don't Want

“Everyone dreams of finding their soulmate. It's a universal quest. All over the world millions of people are looking for their true love, their amore thier ame soeur, that one special person with whom they will spend the rest of their life.

And I'm no different.

Except it doesn't happen for everyone. Some people spend their whole life looking and never find that person. It's the luck of the draw.

If, by some miracle, you're lucky enough to meet the ONE, whatever you do, don't let them go. Because you don't get another shot at it. Soulmates aren't like buses there's not going to be another one along in a minute. That's why they're called, "THE ONE".”
