Izzy is a fabulous character. She’s a secret red head whose year ahead is going to throw her into turmoil.
I really loved the idea behind this novel. A new year always see us making new year resolutions that, come on, none of us really stick to. I think a lot of us have got bored with it. The author has come up with a fresh new idea, or should I say Izzy’s work colleagues, where readers dare Izzy to try something new. To start with the dares are ...more
We all start the year with some New Year’s Resolutions, Normally their all no things, negative statements – less chocolate, no alcohol. It’s always a bit depressing. So it is so refreshing to have some positive resolutions to make.
And as I read this book at the start of the year it is, for me, quite motivating.
This was a great little book about taking chances and stepping out of your comfort zone. Sometimes a little something new can d ...more
I’ll be honest this is the first eBook I’ve received through the post! And the packaging with the hashtag #yessquad peaked my interest straight away. So much so that I, quite unusually for me, picked this up straight away and read it in one sitting.
OK, so it’s a novella so reading it in one sitting isn’t a huge task but even novella’s need to be engaging to be read in one sitting as they require a few hours of dedicated reading time. The Year ...more
Oh wow, I couldn't imagine a better start to the New Year than reading this novella! It is a first part in four part - serialisation and "It Started with a Dare" couldn't be a better beginning to it - it is about New Year - resolutions and how hard, in fact, is to keep to them. I think we all know this. And Izzy realises this as well! Like so many of us (I don't. Hands down, guilty as charged, I don't make any resolutions and there is a very simple reason to this - I forget about them. Two days ...more
Brand new year and what better way to kick off 2017 on TWG than with a review of 'The Year of Saying Yes' but debut author, Hannah Doyle! Millions of people probably gave themselves New Years resolutions in the run up to 2017, whilst several million people probably knew that they would break the resolutions in the first few hours (so didn't even bother). Although, there may be some of you reading this now, who constantl ...more
This was such an easy and fun read. We get thrown into Izzy's life one new years eve. It is the same as always, at her parents house and the rest of the family, with her 'perfect' sister and her wonderfu ...more
2017 started with a bit of a read slump for me, so when I spotted someone on Twitter talking about this story and saw that the first part was free on Amazon, I downloaded it and started reading it immediately. Gosh, I'm so glad that I did! I hadn't had so much fun with a book for a long time. As soon as I finished it, I pre-ordered the other 3 parts of the book and I'm already itching to keep reading Izzy's story.
There's nothing I d ...more
I just adore Izzy shes a fantastic character from the very first page I felt so much warmth and like id known her ages.
In this part we start at New Years Eve and end in March. I cant wait to find out what the rest of the year brings for Izzy.
