I have read plenty of room mates to more stories in the past, but none of them were anything like The Flatshare.
This is a quirky, funny, uplifting romcom/dramedy that kept me up way past my bedtime to get it finished.
Tiffy and Leon are both relatable, likable and just plain enjoyable. I liked the way their -ship starts - it is hard to really describe things without giving anything away. It is on the unusual side, but is not so far out there that it is unbelievable. I really liked it, and couldn't wait for things to progress.
This was a completely fresh and fun story. It does have its darker moments as well, but they are dealt with wonderfully.
There are some amazing secondary characters that made Tiffy and Leon's stories will rounded and complete. They made me laugh out loud at times.
The Flatshare is one of my favourite books of 2019, and a great palette cleanser for the rom-com genre, which can (and has lately) gotten very stale and similar.
Wonderfully paced, delightfully written, if you read only one rom com this year, make it The Flatshare.
Highly original, clever, warm, uplifting and absolutely laugh out loud hilarious! The characters were well-drawn and gorgeous, the writing sparkled, the side stories were heartwarming. What a wonderful debut!
