A task a day to cure a broken heart.
Esmé Peel is approaching thirty with some trepidation, but hope in her heart. If she can just get her long-term boyfriend Andrew to propose, she will have ticked everything off her 'things to do by the time you're 30' list. She didn't reckon on finding another woman's earring in her bed however, and soon she finds herself single, homeless and in need of a new plan. Her best friend Carys gives her the perfect present – The Single Girl’s Calendar – which has a different cure for heartbreak every day: 

Day 1: Look and feel fabulous with a new hair style. 

Day 2: Step out of your comfort zone and try something new. 

Day 3: Reconnect with friends and enjoy!

Despite thinking it's a bit of a gimmick, Esmé hasn't got any better ideas, so she puts the plan into action. By the end of week one she has four new male housemates, and despite a broken heart she is determined to show Andrew she can do more than survive, she can thrive.

Esmé Peel comes home expecting to get ready for a night that will change her life, with her boyfriend of 7 years, but what she finds is proof of Andrew's infidelity. And after confronting him, Esmé leaves for a hotel. But after a gift of a calendar, Esmé is left with a bad haircut and a Aston Villa hat!! But then her luck changes, when her loser brother loses out on a house share... Mainly because Esmé takes it when he can't afford to deposit!

So Esmé gets a fresh start, in a house with her brothers friends! And the calamity begins! With splitting dresses, arguments over pasta, tattooed roommates, breaking into graveyards at midnight, and a tarantula that bites the dust in a vacuum cleaner!

The Single Girl's Calendar is a laugh your trousers off book, that had me in stitches! Seriously, this book is awesome! I honestly don't think I've laughed this much in a long time, there was one bit that confuse me at the end, but I don't want to go into it cuz I will give away the story. The characters are diverse, But you mainly get to know Esmé, and even thou (understandably) she is whiney, you cannot help but like her, and cheer on her character.

The writing is great, and the book definitely leaves you with a feel-good factor, which is why I give it 5 stars, cause despite that one tiny part, that didn't make too much sense, because if you want to laugh out loud till you cry book! I totally recommend The Single Girl's Calendar!!
