The Single Girl’s To-Do List – Lindsey Kelk
by Xiu Ting Low, of Chicklit Club
Somebody else would have described her as just being organised (full stop) but Rachel Summers is more than just that. A self-proclaimed listomanic, she’s always ticking off her daily lists of to-dos, making sure everything is under control. For now, the one at the top of her list is to get her boyfriend back, after he initiates a temporary time-out from their relationship, and Rachel needs more than just a sexy outfit to get it done. She turns up at Simon’s “casual Friday” hangout, waiting for her opportunity to talk to him so everything will fall into place – at least that’s what Rachel thought. But when he dumps her on the streets with the oh-so cliche “I love you but you’re not the one”, she is left devastated, humiliated and for the first time in 16 years, single. Her two best friends step in to get Rachel’s life back on track. Writing her a single girl’s to-do list, they come up with 10 things she has to complete before her dad’s wedding. Stepping outside her comfort zone, and attempting things she’s never ever imagined herself doing, Rachel starts on a whole new journey filled with adventure, fun and the unexpected. You will not only fall in love with the heroine, with her over-the-top obsession with lists, but also with her gay best friend, Matthew (my favourite character with his exaggerated actions and honesty), and best girlfriend Emelie. Hilarious and cleverly written, this novel is one to definitely add to your to-read list.
