    One thought on “Life or Something Like It”

    1. Cat lives for her job. She works for her best friend's PR company and she does everything for him. Jesse is her secret crush and they've been friends since university. Jesse is married to a model though and apart from one unsuccessful night they've never tried anything together. Cat is happy though, she doesn't need a man in her life, she loves her world. She likes the expensive clothes, fancy restaurants and the money that comes with the job. She's completely happy living on her own and she doe [...]

    2. To say that I DESPERATELY want to spend the summer in a beach hut in Suffolk after reading this book would be an understatement! This is a lovely summer read and a book that addresses the taboo that surrounds a woman's choice not to have children. Cat Nightingale, who enjoys her professional life working for a PR company in London, suddenly finds herself in charge of two small children, a position that is way outside of her comfort zone. I particularly enjoyed Cat’s misguided efforts to entert [...]

    3. Completely adored this book. I read half of it on holiday in Greece and lapped up the rest when I got home. I loved Cat's transformation and the hilarious moments with the children. My only complaint was I wish it was longer because I didn't want it to end. Highly recommended!

    4. Originally reviewed on beccasbooooks/2It has been such a very long time since I last read a novel by the wonderful Annie Lyons, the last time being back in July of 2014 when I read the fabulous Not Quite Perfect, which I adored, so I couldn't wait to once again delve into a world created by Annie and meet a brand new batch of characters and situations that I could really lose myself to.In Life or Something Like It, Annie introduces the reader to Cat Nightingale, a snappy, constantly-on-top-of-he [...]

    5. Originally reviewed for Dreaming With Open EyesActual rating = 3.5I kindly received Life or Something Like It in exchange of an honest review by the publisher via NetGalley.Cat has it all. She loves her job, the lifestyle it afforded her, the two-bedroom house in a cool edgy corner of Shoreditch, the weekend away, five-star holidays to the best resorts, first class travel. Cat stopped believing in romance a long time ago she is happy on her own. Cat had a releationship with her iPhone that was m [...]

    6. The book begins with Cat Nightingale, who works hard and, while she lets her work define her, has no qualms about it doing so. She is a strong character who grabbed me from the start, I found her really refreshing. We are told how much she lives for her job, but then suddenly: bang! Cat is told that maybe she should stay away for a little while as part of the fall-out of a publicist’s nightmare, the faux pas of a bad boy footballer. Suddenly Cat has time on her hands which works to her brother [...]

    7. Cat's life starts to change, when her footballer client ends up in the newspapers for all the wrong reasons. Cat is made to take a sabbatical from work, and that coincides with her brother needing help with his kids over the summer. However Cat has made it clear on many occasions to anyone she speaks to that she has no interest in kids, and she barely knows her niece and nephew. But she is up for a challenge and she determines that she will try to become the best Auntie ever, and in doing so she [...]

    8. "Life or Something Like It" is my first Annie Lyon's book, but after reading this one, for sure not the last! I have spotted tweets about this novel appearing as if by magic on Twitter, read only raving reviews, and then I had a better look at this beautiful, gorgeous, stunning cover and synopsis, and I thought I must read this story, period. There were some great characters in this book, that's for certain, and they were all incredibly lively, realistic, larger than life people who were develop [...]

    9. Easy read rom comThis author is reliably entertaining in a very undemanding way. The end of the story is predictable from the first chapter, but that didn't stop me reading it in one sitting. Good curl up with a book material.

    10. Orginally on Book Mood ReviewsEvery so often, I am lucky enough to be asked to read and review a book that completely takes me by surprise. Usually, this is due to the fact that I either I am asked to read a book that is out with my usual genre or it is an author that I haven’t heard of. In the case of this book, it was really neither. I had been asked to read one of Lyon’s previous books, Not Quite Perfect (which I am embarrassed to say is still sitting on my To Read Pile) and also I have b [...]

    11. Annie Lyons has an intriguing way of mixing normal family life, dysfunctional relationships and important social topics of our time. It is so subtle you can barely tell and yet on a subconscious level you do take them on board. My point is Lyons makes her point without shoving it in your face.Cat is a career girl through and through. The world of PR and the social media are the first thing she thinks of when she wakes up in the morning and her last thought at night. She has decided not to have c [...]

    12. Originally posted on: albainbookland/2015/07After reading Annie Lyons' book, Not Quite Perfect, last summer, I knew that she could make me laugh but also think about life and how to appreciate what we have. But with Life or Something Like It, Annie Lyons has overdone herself. She has created a fantastic character with Cat. She was a real workaholic at the beginning and regarded her nephew and niece as strange creatures that she had to avoid at all costs. But under all this you could easily see s [...]

    13. After reading something rather harrowing for the book club I belong to I was looking for something lighter and funnier for some summer reading. I should have saved this book for my holiday but I was too impatient! I have read Annie Lyon's previous books and enjoyed them and this one certainly didn't disappoint. I loved the character of Cat and her PR world, trapped to her social media and constantly on some device. There are many Cat's out there and she was very realistic! She loves her job and [...]

    14. I came across this book on the Twitter feed of author CJ Morrow. I love it when I see a recommended book, but am always nervous as to whether it's my cup of tea or not. I have a wide ranging level of interest when it comes to reading. Some books take me weeks to finish, others I don't bother with. This one though was read in just over a weekend. Thanks to dog walks, I managed to fit more chapters in per day and they were well worth it. I absolutely loved this journey, it and reminded me fondly o [...]

    15. I enjoyed seeing the changes of perspective that Cat is forced to go through over her summer. Seeing her relationship with her family blossom was lovely, especially the children. I'm glad she finally gets the wake up call she needed for her life and her career. I liked the style of this author and would like to look into what else she has written.

    16. This is the first book I've read by Annie and I wasn't disappointed. She has managed to write a story about a single woman with no kids or boyfriend without making the character sound like a complete loser! The brother's children began as brats but became quite winning, and the conclusion neatly avoided cliche. And did I mention that it was really funny? A very enjoyable read.

    17. It was just an "ok" book for me. Too predictable for me! Read this book if you are looking for a book that you don't have to think about!

    18. What a great read!Some lovely descriptive about the Suffolk coast which I could relate to.I love a happy ending!

    19. Oh so dire!! Obvious storyline, annoying characters without any real flaws or interesting traits and the most unconvincing love story. Really the worst book I've ever read.

    20. This is a very light and easy read. It is rather predictable but would be a good choice for the beach or travel.e characters are like-able for the most part
