The first book 'Wilde Like Me' was one of my favorite books last year. Yes, it even got a spot on y end of year wrap up. So I was excited when the second book was announced and even more excited when we could preorder it and i was OVER THE MOON when I finally had it in my hands and pushed all the other books back, just so I could read it right away.


Summary: Robin Wilde is acing life.

T/W- Miscarriage

I've been a long-time subscriber to Louise's YouTube channel. When I first read Life With A Sprinkle of Glitter back in 2014, reading her Robin Wilde books now has been a really exciting experience! Confession: I need to get a hold of book one in this series ahhhh XD

The good news is when I started reading Wilde About The Girl, I didn't end up confused. Straight away, the storyline started with Robin's role at work and her love

Pros: A much easier read than the first book because proper sentences were used and it didn't sound like a vlog script throughout, the experiences were a little more removed from the author's life, the plot was a little more advanced and engaging. There were fewer attempts at it being a 'laugh out loud' affair which was nice because the humour wasn't forced and had less potential to flop.

Cons: Writing still a little clunky, plot still had pacing issues - the conflict happened much earlier into

This is a very warming book. It showed the effects on how a mother, like Robin Wilde, had to live with her daughter in the most best ways ever. Robin and her daughter, Lyla, have very strong connections and true love for each other. They show you how to live your life in many ways, but the only way to do that is . . . not lose each other.
This extremely poignant read will teach you the ways in life and will show that sometimes you have to choose your own path in life but without loosing or

I listened to this novel on audiobook and was pleased to discover that the notes from the author at the front of the book was actually read to me by Louise, it made it feel like a much more personal reading experience because she read that part herself and the narrator did a great job as well so my audiobook experience was a really positive one.

It was great to be back in Robin's world again and of course its not long before things in that world start to go tit-up again and we would expect if

This is the best book I've read so far this year. WLM was good, but WATG was phenomenal.
I just loved Robin and her story so much, and this book made me laugh and cry the whole time. I barely could put it down. It dealt with some sensitive topics, but in a very realistic and raw way.
Also Louise's writing did really improve a lot since #1.
I am hoping for #3 - the ending was okay, but I still feel like the story of Robin, Lyla and all of their friends isn't done being told.

I started reading on Saturday night, just before midnight (I'm not sure why I got into bed so late and decided to read but clearly I couldn't help myself) and I had finished the whole book by 11pm Sunday night. I read the whole book in less than twenty-four hours. That's the sign of a good book already, when you can't put it down.

It had me hooked from the very beginning.

It was so great to go back to characters that I'd fallen in love with during the first book. Going back to Robin and Lyla was

OMG?! What more can I say than I LOVED this book! I’ve never laughed and cried so much at a book before in my life.

Louise stayed true to the characters throughout this sequel, and I could still resonate with Lacey really well and all the infertility problems she was facing.

Robin Wilde is definitely the best friend everyone wants and the person everyone wants to be.

The only thing I would say is for anyone who has suffered a miscarriage then read with caution as the topic is approached and

From start to finish this book was amazing. I loved learning more about Robins life and I loved all the characters. It was very funny throughout but also sad and heartbreaking in places. It was beautifully written and a real ‘cosy’ read. I loved it just as much as the first book and I really hope there is more to come as I didn’t want it to end.

I’m afraid I didn’t love this which is a shame because I really enjoyed the first book. It wasn’t terrible but I did struggle to get into the storyline, I just kind of felt like it wasn’t getting to the point.

Very enjoyable but the main character is a little bit too privileged to be relatable at times. Is fun to read though.

My Rating 3.5*

Wilde About the Girl is the sequel to Wilde Like Me from YouTuber and parenting/lifestyle/beauty blogger/vlogger, Louise Pentland.

Just published by Bonnier Zaffre, Louise Pentland is described as ‘the fresh voice contemporary women’s fiction has been waiting for. She is sharp, funny, a natural storyteller and completely relatable’

Admittedly not a book I would normally pick up, not being from the YouTube generation, so I was well intrigued to check it out.

I found this to be a really nice, enjoyable, light read. Very similar to Wilde Like Me in terms of it not being a heavy read and it is a book that is nice to go to when you are just wanting something light, funny and easy.

I love Robin, she made me laugh out loud throughout the book. I think she is a really lovely character and I really like reading from a perspective of a single mum, balancing work life and mother life. I think it is nice to have these kinds of characters as many books tend to

I read Louise's first book, 'Wilde Like Me', and although I must admit it was nowhere near as progressive and stimulating as some of the novels I'm used to reading as an English Literature student, it was a refreshing change! It's the kind of book that feels like you're having a chilled, gossip-y night in with the girls. It's a feel-good book that makes you want to go out into the world and get it, and it looks like Louise's second book is going to be very similar. If you're looking for lots of ...more

Oh my word! Where do I even start with this?! “Wilde about the girl” was an absolutely gorgeous read Louise Pentland has once again smashed it out of the park. This book deals with some truly heartbreaking issues (which I felt was dealt with compassion and respect) but Robin is lucky because all the while she is surrounded by the people who mean the most to her......auntie Kath and Lyla Blue. Louise Pentland’s writing is just beautiful, and as a mum myself I really relate to Robin, and this is ...more

It took me two days to finish this wonderful book because I got sucked back into Robin’s life in a matter of minutes of listening to the audiobook. What I love about this book is how well Louise Pentland’s writing has progressed since the first instalment! It’s very easy to read and it packs a punch by tackling the topic of miscarriage.

I laughed, cried and cringed my way through another Robin Wilde instalment and I hope there is another one of the horizon (or at least another book by Lady

This is a high three as Pentlands book is surprisingly funny and tender. Im right into mum books right now and this is one of the better ones I've found by happy accident. I've already started on the third on in the series. (And I'll go back and do the first one last of all). Great, sweet read.

What a lovely read. I loved the first one, and the sequel did not disappointment. A tale of heartache, romance, family life and happiness all rolled into one. A beautifully written account of a year in the life of Robin Wilde. A summer ‘must read’.

Wilde About the Girl by Louise Pentland (Spoiler free)

To start of I do love Louise I have been watching her YouTube channel for a few years now and I love her personality and everything and I want to support her in everything that she does. I liked her first book Wilde Like Me and I also liked this one but in my opinion there was something missing and I don't want to come across as harsh so I am really sorry if I do but I like to evaluate the positive and negative aspects of all books I read.

This is not my usual style of book at all but I really, really liked this book. I read the first book Wilde Like Me when it first came out last year and I read it in ab out 2 days. It really took me by surprise. Especially as I picked it up fully expecting to dislike it. So of course I was going to pick up the sequel and I actually ended up reading this in one sitting! I was so encapsulated by it!

I loved the direction that this book went in, particularly how empowering it is. There is so much

Having not been particularly fond of the first book about Robin Wilde (Wilde Like Me) I am not really sure why I purchased the second - who am I kidding I spotted it on sale and thought "bargain". You know what, I am really glad that I did. This is a much more cohesive book than the first and the narrative flows much more easily and you just sink in to Robin's world.

This is a roller coaster for the emotions though. From the trials and tribulations of Robin's work life, romantic life

I really, really loved the body positivity, the epic female friendships and immense woman power shown throughout the book. Robin really drove home her beliefs in the way she interacted with others and developed a strong eye opening rapport with those in her team and her social circle, whilst teaching her daughter to be independent, kind and loving. These aspects, along with the fact that the romance was appropriately subdued due to Robins insecurity and outbursts were great because she needed
