Leftovers - Stella Newman

Genre; Chick Lit
Release Date; April 2013
A novel about friendship, hope and the power of pasta from the bestselling author of Pear Shaped.

According to a magazine, Susie is a ‘Leftover’ – a post Bridget-Jones 30 something who has neither her dream man, job, nor home. She doesn’t even own six matching dinner plates.

According to her friend Rebecca, Susie needs to get over her ex, Jake, start online dating – or at least stop being so rude to every guy who tries to chat her up.

But Susie’s got a plan. If she can just make it the 307 days till her promotion and bonus, she can finally quit and pursue her dream career in food, then surely everything else will fall into place. If only her love life wasn’t so complicated…

A sharp, witty and refreshing novel about love, friendship and enjoying what's left on the table

Any book that bases its self about pasta is already a win in my eyes. After falling in love with Stella Newman i had to grab hold of this book, i think i picked it up on kindle for 99p, its fate. So, the story focuses around love, friendship & pasta recipes and a small amount of blogging. I love the writing style, its a chuckle, i found parts truthful & just a light hearted novel. It even has pasta recipes for cold Wednesday nights. It really is one for a dull wednesday afternoon (the book, not the pasta) to brighten up the afternoon and have you routing for Susie right until the end.

Rating; 9/10
