Review for The Curvy Girls Club by Michele Gorman - Five *


A hilarious, heart-warming read about normal women who decide to ditch the weighing scales and love themselves just the way they are.
Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Bridesmaids.
Can the curvy girls have their cake and eat it?
Meet best friends Pixie, Ellie, Katie and Jane. Fed up with always struggling to lose weight, they start a social club where size doesn’t matter. Soon it’s the most popular place to be – having fun instead of counting carbs. And the girls suddenly find their lives changing in ways they never imagined.
But outside the club, things aren’t as rosy, as they struggle with the ups and downs of everyday life.
In this funny, heart-warming read about normal women learning to love themselves, the curvy girls soon realise that no matter what life throws at them, together, anything is possible . . .


I was on the Fast Diet when I started reading this book. By the time I'd finished it, I was off the diet! The time spent with Katie, Ellie, Jane and Pixie changed my way of thinking. The idea of a club for women who are sick of feeling bad about themselves simply because they are larger than the ideal is fabulous. The four women have strong characters and their interaction is fascinating. Katie's dilemmas concerning her weight loss and her men make a great storyline. I sympathised greatly with her over Alex, I've met many like him!

This made such a pleasant change from the normal rom com/chick-lit/romance - thank you Michele! And I've just about got over the lack of an apostrophe on the cover ;)
