Reading time...

This post is dedicated to Evi from Sexta Feira who some years ago introduced me to the world of Marian Keyes. Since then both me and my sister are addicted to it…


Last Chance Saloon

“…graduated to their slightly more serious thirties, only Fintan has what can honestly be called a love life. With Tara struggling daily with her eternal diet and Katherine keeping her single existence as organized as her drawer full of matching bra and panty sets, it seems that they’ll never locate the exit door out of the “last chance saloon.” But it’s always when you are least ready for change that fate insists on one."


The other side of the story
(my favorite part of the book;)

Why can’t we love the right people? What is so wrong with us that we rush into situations to which we are manifestly unsuited, which will hurt us and others? Why are we given emotions that we cannot control? That move in exact contradiction to what we really want: We are walking conflicts, internal battles on legs, and if human beings were cars, we would return them for being faulty.

Sushi for beginners

Three diverse, profoundly unsatisfied women searching for love, success and happiness are about to discover one of life’s great truths; if you let things simmer for too long under the surface, sooner or later they’re bound to boil over.



The brightest star in the sky

And into the busy, bustling homes at 66 Star Street slips, unseen, a mysterious visitor, as the couples, flatmates and repentant singletons fall in and out of love, clutch at and drop secrets, laugh, cry and simply try to live

This Charming Man

Four very different women. One awfully charming man. And the dark secret that binds them all…




What about you? Have you read any of her books? Which is your favorite?

  2. These sound like interesting reads. Thanks for sharing this review! I've never read her books. Lately I've only been reading health related books. I feel like I need to start reading novels again :)

  14. Wish I was more of a book person! I always find it so difficult to find the right book to read! These books sound really interesting, especially the 'this charming man' and 'the other side of the story'! Haven't read any of her books but I might give them a try!
