Review: Bad Choices by Lucy Vine

This book did not fit any of my challenge prompts.

Blurb:

Two friends. Two decades.
One big mistake…

Nat and Zoe have always shared everything.

Hopeless crushes, emergency tampons, messy sex stories, work triumphs, those days where you can’t stop crying in the loos, those days where you can’t stop dancing on the bar. They even share the same birthday, FFS. The struggle is real, but they’ll always have each other.

Except best friends forever is a hard promise to keep…

Eye-wateringly hilarious, tender and true, this a story about growing up, falling apart, and the friendships that hold us together.

What I liked:

I loved that this book didn’t feature heavily on a romantic relationship but a platonic friendship. They’re so important to people, and we don’t really pay enough attention to how people react when there are issues here, or even break ups. All aspects of a platonic friendship are discussed and developed on here, and I thought it was done so well.

I love dual narrative books, and I really enjoyed this one. Each voice was clearly shown, so there was never any time where I wondered who was speaking.

This book deals with some heavy topics, each I felt were dealt with tactfully.

What I didn’t like:

There is a huge cast of characters in this book, and I often struggled to remember who was who, and their place in the story.

Out of five:

Four. We need more books about the magic of friendship.
