Today I’m excited to be on the blog tour for this brilliant, hilarious feel good novel, Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald!
A fabulously feel-good novel that will make you laugh till you cry and leave you living life to the full, margarita in hand!
Is this all there is? 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. But being good is getting boring…
She’s not just stuck in a rut – she’s buried in it up to her chin. The only company she has in bed is the back catalogue of Netflix and falling in love feels like the stuff of fairy tales. So when she stumbles across a popular podcast, ‘Sorry Not Sorry’, which challenges women to embrace their inner bad girl, she jumps at the chance to shake things up.
Old Charlotte would never ask for a stranger’s number, go on a blind date or buy lacy lingerie… But New Charlotte is waving goodbye to her comfort zone (with a side order of margaritas). And it turns out that good things happen to bad girls…
If you’re a fan of romantic comedies by Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk or Matt Dunn, and love TV shows like Girls, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin, you won’t be able to put down this hilarious read!
This is brilliant! I absolutely loved this novel which at times I could really identify and at which I laughed out loud….a lot! I’m so glad I got to read this!
Charlotte is a fantastic character who I’m sure many women will identify with….especially when it comes to dating and men! After her best friend and housemate moves out with her soon-to-be husband, Charlotte gets some new housemates and decides she needs to start sorting out her own love life. She starts listening to a podcast called ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ which sets her weekly dating challenges and some of them are hilarious! We get to go along with her and it’s honestly brilliant!
Not only that she builds some brilliant new friendships although at the same time goes through a lot of struggles……as it says on the book cover….’When life gives you limes, make margaritas’! She has problems with work, fallings out with friends and man trouble and all the while you’re completely willing her on! She’s definitely the sort of person that I’d happily have as a mate, with lots of nights out drinking!
There are so many real moments in this book, and plenty of moments that make you cringe but they genuinely had me smiling and laughing! There were also plenty of times when I felt sad, frustrated and angry for her too…….And there was a BIG twist at the end which I didn’t expect AT ALL!
Honestly guys, if you want to read something that will give you all the feels, and plenty of smiles and laughter then you NEED to pick this up. Highly recommended by me!!
I’m looking forward to reading more from this author for sure!
about the author….
Sophie Ranald is the youngest of five sisters. She was born in Zimbabwe and lived in South Africa until an acute case of itchy feet brought her to London in her mid-20s. As an editor for a customer publishing agency, Sophie developed her fiction-writing skills describing holidays to places she’d never visited. In 2011, she decided to disregard all the good advice given to aspiring novelists and attempt to write full-time. After one false start, It Would Be Wrong to Steal My Sister’s Boyfriend (Wouldn’t It?) seemed to write itself. Her second, third and fourth novels followed, and The Truth About Gemma Grey was released in summer 2017. Sophie also writes for magazines and online about food, fashion, finance and running. She lives in south-east London with her amazing partner Hopi and Purrs, their adorable little cat.
