Happy hump day everyone!
Exes excited to share with you today my review for this fun story! Major thanks to Noelle for my invitation and to Sophie Ranald for her wonderful story!🌹
A fun entertaining story that will make you giggle!
This was a playful story with an unique angle… as a podcast listener(although most of my podcasts are about serial killers) I really enjoyed how this media was used in the story… a quirky story about taking yourself out of your comfort zone and finding your inner bad girl….
Charlotte is a workaholic about to lose her flatmate and friend to marriage… when she realizes she doesn’t do much more than work day in and day out she starts listening to the popular “Sorry Not Sorry” podcast… this podcast assigns you tasks that will help you find your inner bad girl…. going to be honest some of these things I don’t believe would make you a “bad girl,” but it might take you out of your comfort zone…. but bad girl or not I think it made for a wonderful story and helped Charlotte… there is quite a bit more to the story and some characters actions I didn’t necessarily agree with, but I don’t want to spoil anything…
Charlotte was a pretty sympathetic character, I really felt for her, she really had a lot on her plate… A super demanding job, planning a wedding for her BFF, and looking for the elusive perfect man… I have to admit though I did not always find Charlotte terribly relatable… The secondary characters were wonderful I would love to read a book about Tanzie, she is a girl I can get behind! I also loved Bianka, got to love a character it is fun to hate! And boy was it fun to hate her! It is so true that as our friends begin to get married and have children we tend to lose touch or become closer to those that are at the same stage in life as we are…. I was the second in my friend group to have kids so I guess I was the one to lose touch, but believe me there was many a Friday night I wish I was out with the girls rather than changing diapers… The grass certainly is always greener on the other side of that marriage fence….
An engaging story that will make you want to find your inner bad girl and start listening to podcasts! Recommend!

Talking about the sad girls
Talking about bad girls, yeah
See them out on the street at night (walkin’)
Picking up on all kinds of strangers
If the price is right
You can’t score if you’re pocket’s tight
But you want a good time
You ask yourself who they are
Like everybody else, they come from near and far
Talking about the sad girls (sad girls)
Sad girls (sad girls)
Talking about bad girls, yeah
Friday night, and the strip is hot
Sun’s gone down, and they’re out to trot (out to trot)
Spirit’s high, and legs look hot
Do you wanna get down?
Now, don’t you ask yourself who they are?
Like everybody else, they wanna be a star
Bad girl, sad girl
You’re such a naughty bad girl, bee-beep uh huh
You’re bad girl, you’re sad girl

About the Book
A fabulously feel-good novel that will make you laugh till you cry and leave you living life to the full, margarita in hand!
Is this all there is? I scraped the last dregs of Caramel Chew Chew ice cream out of the bottom of the tub with my finger and licked it. It left a sticky smear on my phone’s screen when I typed into Google, “How to find love, sex and happiness.”
Charlotte has always been a good girl. But being good is getting boring…
She’s not just stuck in a rut – she’s buried in it up to her chin. The only company she has in bed is the back catalogue of Netflix and falling in love feels like the stuff of fairy tales. So when she stumbles across a popular podcast, ‘Sorry Not Sorry’, which challenges women to embrace their inner bad girl, she jumps at the chance to shake things up.
Old Charlotte would never ask for a stranger’s number, go on a blind date or buy lacy lingerie… But New Charlotte is waving goodbye to her comfort zone (with a side order of margaritas). And it turns out that good things happen to bad girls…
If you’re a fan of romantic comedies by Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk or Matt Dunn, and love TV shows like Girls, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin, you won’t be able to put down this hilarious read!
About the Author
Sophie Ranald is the youngest of five sisters. She was born in Zimbabwe and lived in South Africa until an acute case of itchy feet brought her to London in her mid-20s. As an editor for a customer publishing agency, Sophie developed her fiction-writing skills describing holidays to places she’d never visited. In 2011, she decided to disregard all the good advice given to aspiring novelists and attempt to write full-time. After one false start, It Would Be Wrong to Steal My Sister’s Boyfriend (Wouldn’t It?) seemed to write itself. Her second, third and fourth novels followed, and The Truth About Gemma Grey was released in summer 2017. Sophie also writes for magazines and online about food, fashion, finance and running. She lives in south-east London with her amazing partner Hopi and Purrs, their adorable little cat.
