Publisher's Summary

Hot Mess [n.] - someone who is often in a state of disarray while remaining attractive in spite of their flaws and repeatedly finds themselves in uncomfortable predicaments.
Ellie Knight is just like you. Her life isn't turning out the way she thought it would. Some people might say she's a hot mess, but then who really has their s--t together before they're 30?
It's Valentine's Day, and Ellie Knight finds herself eating Nutella in the bar stock after a no-show date. But single doesn't have to be the loneliest number, does it? She goes back home to her flatshare and weird flatmates. It's okay there's black mould everywhere, right?
With a hangover from hell, she goes to the office job she thought she would have quit by now. Doesn't everyone hate their job? Maybe Ellie isn't following the official life plan, but perfect is overrated.
For fans of Fleabag and Girls, this is a fresh and funny coming-of-age story with a single-girl heroine that everyone will relate to - a modern Carrie Bradshaw meets Bridget Jones. Read by Elisabeth Hopper.

made me laugh the whole way through

The performance was excellent. It's nice to read a book about a woman who's purpose in life isn't just to find a man!

Don't be fooled- it's still chick-lit

I was pointed to this book via a podcast- and was given to think that this book is a feminist twist on the usual rom-com/chick-lit. Alas, it was not to be. Although this book has a different twist in that the ending is not the usual syrup-y nonsense, in its on way, it till belongs to the "summer beach reads" list. It's light, vacuous with little to say.
