Izzy is a journalist who usually writes a technology column for a local newspaper. Her somewhat-intimidating boss William sets her the task of dating thirty-one men, via an internet dating site, all within a month, and writing about it for the paper.
Having an active, though fruitless, social life with her friend Donna, Izzy knows what she wants in a man, so creates a shopping list of dos and don’ts and starts ticking them off as she meets the men.
Follow the ups and downs of the dating process including Tim ‘the Weeble’, whose date leads Izzy to see banoffee pie in a whole new light, Lawrence the super-skinny social worker, Felix with his bizarre penchant for Persian Piranhas, and ‘the music maestro but don’t talk about dead pets’ Jake.
By the end of the month, will Izzy have met Mr Right?
Being rabidly single myself I feel lucky to have avoided the perils of internet dating sites, The Serial Dater’s Shopping List is a huge amount of fun however, I thoroughly enjoyed learning what I was (absolutely not) missing.
31 days, 31 dates – that’s what faces main protagonist Izzy in her latest journalistic assignment, from the sublime to the ridiculous it’s all in here from how to present yourself to how to extricate yourself. The characters are all hilariously engaging and full of life and this is a fast, highly entertaining read that has some genuinely laugh out loud moments but also a lot of realistic life truths.
Very entertaining. Recommended for anyone looking for a light yet fulfilling read.
