Have you ever…?
A) Wondered whether the cucumber in your artisan G&T counts towards your five a day?
B) Vowed to spend a wholesome night in, maybe juicing, but surrendered to the inevitable cycle of off-license wine and Facebook stalking almost immediately?
C) Binge-watched an entire box set without even a shred of FOMO?
If the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes!’, the Mills & Boon® Modern Girl’s Guide to Happy Hour is for you: a guide to surviving a 21st century social life – with a feminist twist.

The Mills & Boon Modern Girl's Guide to Happy Hour is a short humour book, similar in style I guess to the Mr Men books I read at the end of last year which were a bit of a disappointment really (short, not too funny, and pricey).

I mention these because whilst I enjoy this book a great deal it is however a lot better than those. Happy Hour at least made me giggle a few times which is why it gained an extra star. It is an okay book.

The book is a simple format of an image on one side and a small block of text to go with it, as seen below:
It works fine and makes it a quick read but with the £6.99 price tag to me it feels a bit much, so in my opinion its something you're going to buy as a jokey gift for someone or get in the sale. But thats just how I feel because I don't like to spend that much on something I'll read in way under an hour.

 Anyway because of its layout it just made me think it would work better in a different platform than a book. Perhaps a twitter feed or something that could be utilised to earn money whilst still sharing content - though I guess one day they'd run out of themes for the A-Z and vintage images.
3 stars / 5 stars

This is the second in a series but can be read in any order, however I wont be picking up any others.

  1. I agree with your reasons for spending a lot for an easy read. Can it be a coffee table book?
