Book Review no spoilers I swear!!!
Welcome back bookish folk, this post is going to be on the delightful Duvet Day by Emily Kerr! It's a wonderful read which I found engaging and irresistible. If you are a fan of romantic comedies, especially writers such as Beth O'Leary and Mhairi McFarlane then this is a must! But before I tell you more, I'd first like to say thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for sending an arc in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own and unbiased. So without a further ado shall we begin?
The laugh-out-loud romcom of the year! Perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Jo Watson and Sophie Ranald.
Young lawyer Alexa Humphries’s one true love is her precious duvet, yet she is torn from its comforting embrace every morning while the foxes are still scavenging the bins outside and doesn’t get back until long after most normal people are already asleep. Worn down by the endless demands of her suspicious boss and her competitive, high-flying housemate and fellow lawyer, Zara, Alexa barely recognises herself anymore. This wasn’t how life was supposed to be.
But today is different. Today, Alexa just cannot get out of bed to face the world. Everyone deserves a duvet day, don’t they?
Firstly I would like to kick off my thoughts with wow. I loved this book so much. It was refreshing, funny and equally cringe-worthy. It had the perfect balance of love, heart and laughter that created a page turner of a book.
We start with our heroine, Alexa who is so stressed out that she takes a day off to stay in bed. The day should be about doing absolutely nothing. Except that doesn't go exactly to plan. Having found herself locked out of the house in the middle of London in her onesie. Alexa must do whatever it takes to track down a set of keys from the mysterious housemate Sam. The only problem? She hasn't a clue who or what Sam looks like.
I really liked the concept of this book as Alexa found herself running all over London trying to find her way home in time before her co-worker housemate gets there. The day leads Alexa to do things she never thought she'd do and in a way she grows and learns that her voice deserves to be heard and that she shouldn't feel the need to shy away into the crowd. The only issue I had with this book was that there wasn't more! I wished there was another chapter because I didn't want it to end!!
There is so much to this book but if I go on, I'll end up spoiling it so I shall leave by saying this. Duvet Day is one corker of a book and is sure to leave you with a smile on your face!
