Review of The Thirty List by Eva Woods - Four *

Review of The Thirty List by Eva Woods - Four *


Everyone has one.

That list.

The things you were supposed to do before you turn thirty.

Jobless, broke and getting a divorce, Rachel isn't exactly living up to her own expectations. And moving into grumpy single dad Patrick’s box room is just the soggy icing on top of her dreaded thirtieth birthday cake.

Eternal list-maker Rachel has a plan – an all new set of challenges to help her get over her divorce and out into the world again – from tango dancing to sushi making to stand-up comedy.

But as Patrick helps her cross off each task, Rachel faces something even harder: learning to live – and love – without a check list.


I read this in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed it!  Rachel is a very sympathetic character - but very funny as well. Patrick is a very honest sort of bloke and I was rooting for them from the word go.

The book is very funny at times , although I felt like strangling Ian at times! In fact all Rachel's friends are as complicated as she is and the different plots made for really interesting reading.

The list of challenges was a brilliant idea. I've also done a sky dive and the description was spot on!

I look forward to Eva's next book.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
