How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly Bourne

funny lighthearted medium-paced
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


I really like Holly Bourne's writing style, so when I saw this book had been reduced on kindle I knew I had to read it. I have finally got round to reading it and I absolutely loved it. 

I love how hilarious Holly makes her characters. They are so relatable, I literally feel like I have made friends with the cast of characters. Tori was just bloody brilliant. Apart from the whole fame and writing a book thing, I feel like Holly has looked into my life and literally wrote me as a character. Honestly, I actually read parts of this book out to my husband because I just could believe how similar she was to me. It was excellent to discover. Shout out to other characters such as Dee and Sandy, they stick in my mind particularly due to just being brilliant characters as well. I would love to have seen more from Sandy, I know she was only a side character but she had me in stitches whenever she was present. 

I want to ask, why does Tori's book not actually exist. The more I read the more I wanted to read her book as well. Please can we make this happen? 

I would love to read a sequel to find out the path that Tori's life takes next.
