Candace Book Blog Presents The Art Of Letting Go By Anna Bloom

About The Art of Letting Go
 (The Uni Files- Year One):

One year. One woman. One Diary. One question: can you ever stop history from repeating itself and if you could what would you do to stop it?

When Lilah McCannon realises at the age of twenty-five that history is going to repeat itself and she is going to become her mother—bored, drunk and wearing a twinset—there is only one thing to do: take drastic action. 

Turning her back on her old life, Lilah’s plan is to enrol at university, get a degree and prove she is a grown-up.

As plans go, it is a good one. There are rules to follow: no alcohol, no cigarettes, no boys and no going home. But when Lilah meets the lead singer of a local band and finds herself unexpectedly falling in love, she realises her rules are not going to be the only things hard to keep.

With the academic year slipping by too quickly, Lilah faces a barrage of new challenges: will she ever make it up the Library stairs without having a heart attack? Can she handle a day on campus without drinking vodka? Will she ever manage to read a history book without falling asleep? And most importantly, can she become the grown-up that she desperately wants to be.

With her head and her heart pulling her in different directions can Lilah learn the hardest lesson that her first year of university has to teach her: The Art of Letting Go?

My Review

5 of 5 The Art Of Letting Go

The Art Of Letting Go is one of the funniest craziest books I have ever read! Lord I laughed and I screamed and I yelled at my kindle because I was so invested in this story and the characters. Man what a wild ride this story was. I mean the main character was older she was 25 years old and she had a life but it was life she did not want. She had a fiance but she did not love him she just agreed to marry him out of comfort. So as I am reading this story and I am seeing where this is going I start to get nervous because at 25 years old when you make a life change it can either make you or break you depending on what the outcome of the decision.

So when Lilah decides she has had enough of her life and she is going to pack up and go to Uni I was a little afraid for her because I did not think she could pull it off but holy hell what she does go through is one crazy ride. I mean imagine starting Uni at the age of 25 uh you are a little older than the college age kids and you have to decide if you are going to fit in with the in crowd or you are just going to sit back and live in your own world. 

So Lilah starts Uni and she goes through all these changes and challenges and some where along the line she falls in love with a great guy but she has been heart before and she has problems trusting men in general. But when Lilah meets Ben he sparks something in her that she wants to explore but is to nervous to explore.

Will she let her old self go and move on or will she stay sheltered?
