Link to book – The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary.
Rating – 4 out of 5 stars
Oh my goodness, this book was so adorable I absolutely loved it! It completely warmed my cold, dead heart and left me with the most incredible fuzzy feeling after I finished reading it. I honestly wish I hadn’t waited so long to pick it up, it was so worth the read.
Starting off with our characters, I found that they absolutely carried this book – not that the rest wasn’t up to standard though! The split POV worked really well for them and I found myself wanting to read as quickly as possible so I could see how Leon felt about Tiffy’s notes and vice versa. And, the supporting characters were pretty fab too, the author had clearly put work in to add as much life and soul to the story as possible.
And the story itself was actually inventive, I loved the idea of the flat share and how their relationship developed just through notes, it really was heart warming and very cleverly written. I also really enjoyed the side plots with Tiffy’s ex and Leon’s brother being in prison, it really fleshed out the story and added value to the main plot.
I also really enjoyed the writing style of this book, it was super easy to read which is not a criticism at all. The whole thing just flowed really nicely and felt like everything slotted together to create such a lovely tale. The writing was really good and I just didn’t notice the time passing when I was reading, so that’s always nice!
The Flatshare was just a super entertaining story and I loved every second of my read through, I found myself laughing out loud, gasping in shock and really rooting for the characters and that was all down to the authors storytelling and character building.
My only wish is that it were longer as I wanted more of Tiffy and Leon!
Until next time, Em xxx
