Today I am helping to the end the blog tour for Evie’s Little Black Book by Hannah Pearl. I will be sharing my review! There is also an international giveaway going on!
Is hunting down every man you’ve kissed the answer to finding Mr Right?
When Evie is invited to the wedding of the guy she’d fancied throughout her teens, it’s the final straw. What’s wrong with her and why can’t she keep a man?
In between consoling herself with ice cream and chocolate, and sobbing her heart out to her cousin Chamaine, Evie has a brainwave – and it all centres around her ‘little black book’ (well, more floral patterned notebook really) – which contains the details of every man she’s ever kissed or dated. Perhaps the cure for her disastrous love life has been nestled within its pages all along …
Does Evie’s little black book really hold the answers, or will she learn that exes are exes for a reason?

Should you look at your past to move forward in your life? The premise of Evie’s Little Black Book had me wanting to read it! This is a fun chick lit novel that entertains throughout and you can’t help but like ALL of these characters.
I enjoyed going on this journey with Evie and learning about her past as she did. Was the problem in past relationships actually Evie or her former partners? Has she just not met the right man yet? Is it really “It’s me and not you”?
You know where the novel is going once she meets Jake, but it is a fun ride. There is a deeper meaning here towards the end of the novel that I was not expecting. Even though this is a fun and quick read, I found myself genuinely concerned with the actions the characters chose to go with towards the end of the novel. Luckily that direction did not happen (Note to self: Remember this is light-hearted chick lit!)
There is an important message here: Real and true friends will always come back to you even if you have not been treated well.
Evie’s Little Black Book is recommended.
