Praise for the hottest new release of 2017: I'd need the fingers and toes of all the Tinder dates that Ellie Knight goes on in Hot Mess - and then some - to count the times I laughed out loud while reading this bawdy broad of a book. More lifestyle-affirming than Bridget Jones, less jab-a-fork-in-my-eye weepy than Love, Actually - this is a rom-com for a new generation. I loved it!
Hot Mess is one of the funniest, warmest books I've ever read. Heroine Ellie is a loveable, likeable everywoman and I laughed and sighed with recognition as I turned every page. It's a gorgeous story about all relationships, friendships, family and romance. If it doesn't make you laugh out loud, I could never be friends with you. A truly lovely and lively debut - I'm hooked on Lucy Vine's writing.
The most relatable book I've read in years - funny, real, filthy, if you liked Fleabag and Broad City, you'll love this
Lucy Vine is always hilarious and with Hot Mess she's channelling her uniquely pithy tone into shining a light on the daily toils of being single and millennial. I'd swipe right for Hot Mess
The funniest thing I have read in a very,very long time. Ellie Knight is your new single soul sister and the perfect antidote to nosy relatives constantly asking when you're going to meet someone "nice"
If you love dirty jokes, dating horror stories and hilarious dialogue, this book is for you. Hot Mess will make you feel less alone and proud to be the imperfect hero of your own life
Bad dates, bad mates, figuring yourself out and f**king it up - the laugh out loud literary equivalent of Trainwreck-meets-Fleabag
A laugh-out-loud comedy of errors
A breath of fresh air, deftly subverting some of chick lit's biggest clichés. You're guaranteed at least one moment of total recognition per chapter
This book is getting a lot of Bridget Jones comparisons, but thanks to her disastrous Tinder dates and single-life fails, we think lead character Ellie Knight is even better. And funnier. This is must-pack holiday reading that'll have you snorting into your pina colada and passing it onto your mates.
A hilarious read that singletons everywhere will relate to. Perfect for the summer.
An irreverent, zingy novel about how there's far more to life than finding The One
This is refreshingly realistic and combines laughs with tear jerking moments
Hot Mess has a laugh-out-loud moment on every single page. Hilarious and real - if you like Fleabag and Broad City, then you'll love this book.
This laugh-out-loud book reminds you that you aren't alone. A Bridget Jones for the Tinder generation
A more realistic, relatable Bridget Jones for this generation
More sassy than Carrie Bradshaw, more 2017 than Bridget Jones, this is a funny, satisfying read for anyone who doesn't have all the answers to the perfect life
