The Wedding Diaries by Sam Binnie
The first novel in an entertaining and hilarious new series introduces Kiki Carlow, a woman on a mission to create her perfect wedding. Kiki Carlow is shocked but delighted when boyfriend Thom proposes. Planning a wedding is easy, right? That’s as long as you ignore:
1. The utterly bankrupting price of the only dress you’ll ever truly love. 2. Your suddenly pregnant sister – surprise!
3. The celebrity wedding you’re covering for work which is devouring your every waking thought.
4. The Mother of the Bride. Entirely. Kiki soon discovers that planning the perfect wedding might just bring total chaos to the rest of her life.
Can she stop being a Bridezilla in time to marry the man she loves?
This novel is told in diary form which I have not come across before. It did take me a little while to set into the pace of this book but I think this is because of the unusual style but after only a handful of diary entries I found my pace and really started to enjoy the book.
We follow Kiki as she makes all of the arrangements for her wedding and I loved the little To Do notes at the end of each entry.There was a lot of down to earth humour in this book and it soon becomes clear that Kiki’s plans are going to be anything but plain sailing!
I was pleasantly surprised how well the relationships between Kiki and her partner and also her sister are developed which I think must have been quite hard to achieve with the structure of this book.
This is a fun and exciting modern read that will have you laughing out loud and if the story leaves you wanting a little more the author gives you this with a great little taster at the end of the book.
Like the sound of this book then head over and grab your copy and for those of you who have a kindle great news it is only 99p !
