Ould stay up or down Even though they are opposites they soon become friends And then maybe But falling in love with your roommate is probably a terrible ideaespecially if you've never metWhat if your roommate is your soul mate A joyful uirky romantic comedy Beth O'Leary's The Flatshare is a feel good novel about finding love in the most unexpected of wa.

This was boring and I just didn t feel the chemistry so just pretty disappointing I ll laborate in a recent reads video It s weird how Contested Reproduction easily you can get to know someone from the traces they leave behind The best kinds of books are those that surprise you with their perfection I wasxpecting this to be a cutesy light hearted read It was and it wasn t The characters were complex than I had anticipated and so was the plot Tiffy is desperate for a place to live and Leon is short on cash They come to an odd arrangement They will share not only a flat but the same bed Leon has the flat for the day until he starts his shift at the hospital and Tiffy gets it at night But the strangest part of the arrangement is that they never meet What starts as leaving a note to remember to leave the toilet seat down turns into a correspondence between friends Both have their own life problems to deal with and it was so beautiful to see how they supported and helped one another A book with a written correspondence between the main characters are one of my favourite kinds Be it Divided by Color (American Politics and Political Economy Series) email or letter or text I just love seeing how two people can form a bond withought having seenach other Leon s chapters were very different in style The sentences were shorter and direct and I liked how they conveyed his way of thinking The two POV s were distinct and I loved how you could clearly tell them apart While this style of writing probably isn t Creating Country Music everyone s cup of tea Injoyed the hell out of it I am so glad I read this It is being added to my favourites list and I will definitely give it a reread I can t wait to see what Blacklands else Beth O leary has in store for us TW EMOTIONAL ABUSE EMOTIONAL MANIPULATION STALKINGPre weekend buddy read with my gal Warda 4 Adorable Left Me Feeling Content Stars for Beth O Leary s The FlatshareThis book worked its way into my heart with its slow burn romance and I m usually not a slow burn fan adorable post it notes I LOVED reading the back forth notes fierce uirky hilariously inappropriate friendsveryone needs a Tribe like this in their life subtle yet frank look at Evolutionary Patterns emotionalpsychological abuse totally unexpected but handled appropriately for this type of readThere is unexpected depth and so much heart in this sweet little book I had one day to read it before having to return it to the library and was worried I wouldn t be able to do it It says a lot about the book s pull that I managed to finish it in a couple hours in 1 sitting And here you are book going on my favourites list This was a pleasant surprise in the best way possible I knew that I wouldnjoy it but I fell in love instead It s a uiet heartwarming story that follows Tiffy and Leon Both have agreed on an unusual arrangement between themselves and are sharing not only a flat but a bed together But they don t see Evolution As Entropy each other Tiffy has the apartment to herself in thevenings and when she s off to work that s when Leon comes home During this arrangement they Forging Gay Identities exchange very simple ordinary notes that are left around the apartment and slowly their lives starts to intertwine without them meaning to I wasxpecting something fluffy and cute and whilst those Forbidden History elements were there the underlying tone of the story was a lot serious They re dealing with their own demons and struggles and are on survival mode till that fails them It all felt very realistic and honest and true to real life I just lovedverything about this story the format it was told in the alternate POVs how well we got to know the characters and how much it meant to me to see them succeed It was uirky clever and Tiffy and Leon s personalities shined through the writing I was in their world whilst reading and wanted to be a part of their world I m already missing these characters I know I won t forget them anytime soon It s amazing that this is a debut novel I need of Beth O Leary s stories in my life I ve got 3 days to read this before I have to return it to the library self made Challenge accepted this story really grew on me in the best way possible i guess its true what they say that opposites attract becau.

Se a couple of things that would normally be off putting to me as a reader tiffy being stereotypically uirky and the odd writingformatting of leons chapters turned out to be very Fiche Blian ag Fás endearing and made menjoy the story that much i love how this radiated british humour its so understated undervalued Esteem Enlivened by Desire even and i thought leon was hilarious both characters are charming and i thought tiffy went through an amazing character development for being a light and fluffy book there are some uite serious topics discussed in this mainlymotional abuse and manipulation but i thought it was handled really well in a way that was loyal and realistic to the characters and story overall im very much impressed with this debut novel and i think its safe to say beth o leary is an author to keep an Flights of Fancy, Leaps of Faith eye on 35 stars now available in both hardback andBook format in the UK IrelandYasssssss Oh I have been waiting for a book like this one to come along FOR YEARS The Flatshare is xactly what I want from a romantic comedydramedy type book It s got hugely likeable protagonists in the form of Tiffy and Leon a highly original setup for the meeting of these two characters a cast of interesting supporting characters and side storylines but most of all It feels fresh Hallelujah for that I have found myself getting so jaded when it comes to this genre of book but this one is a veritable diamond in the rough The Flatshare does not feel like so many of the countless romantic comedydramedy books I ve read throughout the yearsThe setup for this book is a bit bonkers but it really works Tiffy and Leon are flatmates with a twist They share a bed But Leon is in the flat only during the day as he works night shifts Whereas Tiffy is in the flat at nights and on the weekends Their lives are so separate that they haven t ven met I mean we know where this is going right BUT THE JOURNEY IS FABULOUS Tiffy and Leon start leaving generic post it notes for They Shall Be One Flesh each other around the flat regarding things such as bin day leftover foodtc but these notes gradually The Heritage of Arabo-Islamic Learning evolve into a deeper intimacy and the two find themselves wondering a lot about the other person and if maybe there is a significant connection The pacing is perfect btw I thought the book might have therror of using the notes as the sole point of contact between the two leads for too long but the author got it spot on with how she kept building upon their burgeoning relationship Tiffy is the traditional uirky type of leading lady that we so often get in these books BUT because of the great writing and the fact that she has a fabulous backstory and is a character laden with genuine feelings and Hereward (Hereward, emotions her uirkiness feels authentic to who she is as a person And who she is is also incredibly relatable She s got a wonderfully human uality about her and is fabulously dynamic in that at times she s spunky but others is vulnerable and weak Leon bless him is just lovely He s so uiet but filled with lots of hiddenmotions The backstory regarding his mum and his brother and how that translates to his chosen career is uite touching to read about So what I really wasn t Under One Sky expecting is that this story is farmotional than I ver thought possible from a light read This is because it deals with some heavy issues regarding destructive and controlling relationships all of which I thought were handled in uite an appropriate fashion for such an accessible asy read And what happily contrasted with that Groom and Doom emotional side of the book were a great number of humorous moments I laughed out loud FREUENTLY at the fabulous jokes and witty dialogue between the characters FYI for those of us whonjoy that sort of thing there are some fabulous patriarchy bashing jokes in the book that are absolute gems If you re a fan of romantic comedies and romantic dramadies then this book is definitely one you should pick up when it s published in April 2019 An Eroarea lui Descartes e copy of this book was kindly provided to me by the publisher uercus via NetGalley inxchange for an honest review Re read 8519 Y all I still love this SO DAMN MUCH The characters in this book are some of.
