Is this all there is? I hadn’t had so much as a sniff of a shag for over a year. I scraped the last dregs of Caramel Chew Chew ice cream out of the bottom of the tub with my finger and licked it. It left a sticky smear on my phone’s screen when I typed into Google, “How to find love, sex and happiness.”

Charlotte has always been a good girl.

Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald is another contemporary romance novel that promises readers to be full of laugh out loud moments. Again, though I wonder if my sense of humor is way off of everyone else of not when only getting a chuckle here or there and no real hysterical moments unfortunately.

In this story Charlotte finds herself questioning just where she is in here life when her two longtime roommates and best friends are packing up and moving on to marriage and a life together after fallin

I don't know how much my review will do justice to this book with my sleep induced brain, but my excited heart won't allow me to rest until I have posted this. Have you ever felt that particular urge to share your excitement just after reading an amazing novel? Ever experienced that bubbling happiness that won't be subdued unless you narrate the story to at least one person? If yes, then you know what I am going through now. Yup!

A fun entertaining story that will make you giggle!

This was a playful story with an unique angle... as a podcast listener(although most of my podcasts are about serial killers) I really enjoyed how this media was used in the story... a quirky story about taking yourself out of your comfort zone and finding your inner bad girl....

Charlotte is a workaholic about to lose her flatmate and friend to marriage... when she realizes she doesn’t do much more than work day in and day out she starts liste

Sorry Not Sorry is a cute and endearing read that any woman can relate to! I devoured this book in one sitting and felt very connected to Charlotte (which is a must have for me). I hope the author continues writing books like this in the future because I will be one of the first people to buy it! I loved this to pieces.

In this novel, readers will meet Charlotte. Charlotte has come to a crossroads of sorts in her life as

Please note that I received this book via NetGalley. This did not affect my rating or review.

So this was actually really good. I laughed, cried, and laughed some more. The character of Charlotte was written well and so were all of the secondary characters. I really liked the overall plot of Charlotte trying to do more with her life and meet someone and the subplots of her changing relationship with Maddy, and her two new roommates, Tansy and Adam. I am wondering if Ranald has plans to write a se

After a bit of a slow start, where I was struggling to work out who worked where, and what all the characters connections were - admittedly I was very tired when I read the first half of the book, which possibly affected my initial enjoyment - I'm glad I continued as I thoroughly enjoyed the second half of the book.

What really intrigued me initially and kept me reading was the pod cast series that Charlotte was following called Sorry Not Sorry, all about getting in touch with your inner bad gir

Did a book’s ending ever make it hard to fairly rate a book? I am not saying that the ending was terrible, its just that…well, I just didn’t like it. Which stinks because up until the 95% mark of this book I thought it was rather fun. I was whipping through the ending because I wanted to finish and then BAM, that “twist.”

It was a fun story; classic chick-lit, light read that is easy to whip through. I liked some characters, I hated some characters (which you were supposed to). But obviously meh

Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald is a hysterical romp through life while dating and all its hits and misses (or messes) which comes with it. It's about losing a best friend to marriage and working endless hours at a job that you feel unappreciated. In other words...life!

I know, I know, contemporary romance isn't really my thing, but I like to step out of my comfort zone every once in a while and there was just something about this title that made me want to read it. It sounds like the perfect and fun summer or beach read... And I still believe it fits that title perfectly. You see, I think the problem here was mostly me, and not Sorry Not Sorry. There were things I liked about the story, and the humor is definitely more than present. I was able to click with th ...more

I am seriously beginning to wonder, if there's something wrong with my sense of humour. Maybe it's went on holiday without giving my brain notice? Maybe it's just not getting the sophisticated and sublime jokes, that must be somewhere within the pages of this book. All I know is, that this boo

My first book by this author and I was utterly pleased. It’s a chicklit but not the dime a dozen one. Don’t get me wrong. I am a fan of the ‘normal’ kind, but it’s an treat when the author adds a little touch of something else like a bit of suspense. This is what happend here and it gives the story some extra pizzazz.

This book is about bringing the bad girl out in you and not feeling sorry about it. Honestly, why should you? There is nothing wrong with taking some steps to make you feel on top o

Shake things up!

Charlotte’s best friend is moving out, and now the house feels empty. And so does her life. She’s in a rut. So, when she finds this series of podcasts named ‘Sorry Not Sorry’, she is determined to get more out of life. What I really liked about Charlotte is that she could be any one of us. She wasn’t this super-thin super-unreal super-woman, but just a relatable person with recognizable problems.

It was never TOO bad, which was how I liked it. Just a broadening of her horizon. Sp

A light hearted enjoyable read. Charlotte best friend moves out to live with her boyfriend and Charlotte starts to feel a little lost in the dating world. She starts to listing to a podcast that opens her up to be a little more daring in life. She a likeable character with realistic needs and feelings. while I didn't really laugh out loud and felt the book could of been a little shorter I still enjoyed it.

I enjoyed this book, it had some really good parts but I didn't love it nearly as much as I had hoped.

I loved Charlotte. I thought she was a great lead character...smart as hell, independent, passionate about her job, clearly tired of being single but not defined by it and warm and funny and loyal and a bunch of other good things. Even when stuck in her rut, you could see that and that was good to read. I really was rooting for her so much.

I also loved Xander...cute, dorky, sweet and so clearly

Oh my! Sorry Not Sorry offered that chicklit spark that had gone in my life!

The book opens strong, delightfully so with how Charlotte dealt with her new life: without her best friend Maddy, welcoming two new housemates (one a very attractive young woman, and one anti-social guy), and the prospect of a possible The One from work.

It got draggy in the middle where I did not give a cent about Charlotte and her beau, her work, but it had a plus point in weaving Charlotte-Tansy friendship and I was pa

I am sitting on a bus leaving New York and I couldn’t even wait to get in front of my laptop to write a review... this book was THAT. GOOD.
Charlotte feels like a dear friend at this point. The reality of modern dating is so poignant throughout this novel and I know I and my friends can relate to the absolute misery/high that is the current dating scene.
I took this book slowly because it was one of those novels you know you’ll be sorry to see end. Hell, I even slacked on some finals studying to

Fun, Quirky, Relatable, and Appealing!
Sorry Not Sorry will have many women saying," I can relate".
Good girl turned bad Charlotte is on the prowl for a new life.
She's fed up with nothing but NetFlix so when she uncovers the sexy dating podcast - Sorry not Sorry- she figures why the hell not, what does she have to lose.
It turns out fairy tales can come true, they can even happen to you...or so Disney wants us to believe.
But is Mr. Right the right one for her?...

A decent book, but not necessarily one that I was jumping up and down over until the last 15 percent or so. Really, the main reason I kept reading it was to see if I was correct about my original assumption of who Charlotte would end up with (and I was).

I received an eARC of this from NetGalley, but that in no way affects my opinion on it.

I feel like I should pull a Charlotte and do what she did. This novel could be used as a self-help book for sure!

Charlotte has always been good. She focuses on work, rarely goes out. But as you can expect, it gets boring so she decides to try and change it. Thanks to almightly Google, she finds a podcast to spice up her life. There starts the journey of completing weekly challenges - my worst nightmare as I'm

(The point five is there because it's not just a 3 but it not a solid 4 either. So yeah. )

"Sorry Not Sorry" it's the 1st thing that i loved about this book. It's just sounds so damn cool. The next best thing is the Main character Charlotte. I really connected to her. The "struggles" she went through dating and how she handled it is hilarious yet amazing. The book shows the fact that it's just not about finding the one but also about finding or building a better version of yourself. To
