Pear Shaped - Stella Newman

Genre - Chick Lit
A novel about love, heartbreak and dessert.

Girl meets boy.
Girl loses boy.
Girl loses mind.

Sophie Klein walks into a bar one Friday night and her life changes. She meets James Stephens: charismatic, elusive, and with a hosiery model ex who casts a long, thin shadow over their burgeoning relationship. He’s clever, funny and shares her greatest pleasure in life – to eat and drink slightly too much and then have a little lie down. Sophie’s instinct tells her James is too good to be true – and he is.

An exploration of love, heartbreak, self-image, self-deception and lots of food. Pear-Shaped is in turns smart, laugh-out-loud funny and above all, recognizable to women everywhere

Um so i got to be jealous of another womans job, once more - a pudding designer, how cool would that job be?! So, this book tells the story of Sophie who falls madly and deeply in love despite reservations, as with all chick lit novels, this course is not a smooth one. With a huge focus on self image, i felt both at moments uplifted whilst others so down, espeically for Sophie.  Oh, and did i mention there is lots of food in this book? I bloody love food! So, the story was well written in what seemed short bursts making this both easy and enjoyable to read. I flew it very quickly with a great cast of characters i found myself instantly hooked, i would most certainly reccomend this for a poolside read.

Rating 8/10
