The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart
By Anna Bell
Genre: Chick lit, comedy, women’s fiction, romantic comedy
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was super cute! I read it very quickly. Main character Abi is absolutely devastated when her boyfriend, Joseph, breaks up with her. She thought for sure that he was the one. When he returns her possessions, he accidentally includes his bucket lists of adventures he wants to go on and things he wants to do. Abi decides that the perfect way to get Joseph back is to do everything on his bucket list and post pictures to Facebook so he will see just how compatible they are. While completing this bucket list, Abi meets Ben, a bike shop owner who helps train her for some of the more difficult challenges. In the middle of all this, Abi starts having some challenges at work and thinks that someone is trying to sabotage her.
I really enjoyed this book. I could relate to Abi and her difficulty post-break up. She was a sweet girl with a good heart. I loved reading about all of her adventures and it definitely made me want to travel and make my own bucket list. In fact, Abi includes directions for making your own bucket list at the end of the book! Ben was just the coolest guy friend a girl could have- sweet, understanding, and hilarious. I thought that Abi really needed a best friend like her best friend, Sian. Sian was never afraid to call Abi out on her crap! I had a pretty good idea of how this story would end, but I wasn’t sure of exactly how it would get there. It did not disappoint! I would highly recommend this sweet story to fans of chick lit.
