    One thought on “...And a Happy New Year?”

    1. “A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.”----Elbert HubbardHolly Bourne, an English bestselling author, pens yet another exciting, soul-touching and enlightening contemporary tale, And a Happy New Year? which is the final book from Bourne's bestselling young adult series, The Spinster Club. Lottie, Evie and Amber is back again after leaving for their respective colleges for Amber's house New Year's Party. This novella is a complete joy ride filled with laughter, good [...]

    2. [4.5] I WANT MORE. I NEED MORE. WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO END?! :-(If you're looking for a book that portrays female friendships in the most honest and real way, the Spinster Club books are the one.

    3. I LOVED the previous books in this series but this lacked for me. I felt a lot of it was pointless drama and characters getting drunk and talking about sex. It just didn't own up to the rest of the series in my opinion. The POV switches were also not my favorite, Evie was my favorite character so changing POVs bothered me. The portrayal of friendship I really enjoyed. Just to show that friends do split apart and that growing apart is sad- it will be alright. That you may reconnect in the future, [...]

    4. Buddy read with Emer.This isn't my first rodeo with a Holly Bourne book, and I've previously expressed with the likes of Am I Normal Yet?, What's a Girl Gotta Do? and It Only Happens in the Movies how much I love Holly Bourne's stance on feminism, friendship and mental health. However, after having read so many of her novels (including this, and her adult debut How Do You Like Me Now?) you begin to pick up on things: on flaws, repetition.And all these flaws and repeated plot lines / character qu [...]

    5. Originally posted on A Frolic Through FictionRATED 4.5/5 STARSWHYYYYYYY?!?Curse and bless you, Holly Bourne, for bringing this series into existence. Though let’s lean much more towards the “blessing” side of that, because c’mon. This series is everything.Within 200 pages this book broke me. It made me swell with happiness, and yet cry six times. It infuriated me. It made me want to hug Evie so hard and become best friends with her (I have a particular soft spot for her. Part of the Evie [...]

    6. A great ending to such a perfect series! It was so nice to see what happened to Evie, Amber and Lottie after the end of What's a Girl Gotta Do? (and to finally find out where Lottie went to university). I just really wish this book had been longer - I knew before buying it that it was a novella, but I do think it could have benefited from being longer than it was.Full review (and some cosy, wintry photos) on the blog!

    7. A bit like Pretty Little Liars: 5 Years Forward in the way it had built everyone up to their happy ending, only to wreck things for the sake of drama, but by the end I was pleased that the girls got to live their lives happily, even if it meant losing and rediscovering their friendship.

    8. I totally missed the opportunity to read this just before NY last year, and I wasn't letting that happen again. I loved And a Happy New Year?! It was a pleasure to reacquaint myself with the Spinster girls, and this novella was such a great end to an already wonderful trilogy.For me, every year from now on is going to be the Year of the Spinster.

    9. "Be still my beating loins."Ahh! I cannot believe this series has actually come to an end. These girls are my life and soul. These girls have helped me decide who I am, who I want to be and where I want to go. These girls have influenced me and have made me cry. These girls have made me giggle during dark days and these girls have introduced a whole new chapter in my life that has yet to be written. Breathe. In. Out. Breathe. In. Out.This was the perfect ending to the Spinster Series. The magnif [...]

    10. Another version of this review can be found hereReceived in exchange for an honest review from Usborne Publishing.It's the Year of the Spinster!The Spinster Club series follows the journey of Evie, Amber and Lottie in what's undoubtedly one of the most trying periods of their respective lives. We meet each of them in the three books as they deal with whatever life throws at them, while also being fiery advocates of feminism. In this novella, we meet these three girls as they get together for the [...]

    11. I’ll hopefully write up about YA Shot in another post, but something really cool happened yesterday which was (kinda) unrelated…I got my hands on a copy ofAnd A Happy New Year?, the Spinster Club novella by Holly Bourne. And I’m quoted in the back! And I got it signed! Any of you loyal readers/twitter followers will probably know I’m a huge fan of these books. The Spinster Club Trilogy follows three girls (Evie, Amber and Lottie) on their separate journeys and experiences with feminism, [...]

    12. What better way to end 2016 than by reading . . . And a Happy New Year? I adore the Spinster Club girls – Amber, Lottie and Evie – and I read all three books in the series last year, so it just seemed right. In this festive novella, we hear from each of the girls as they struggle with the events of the past year: broken friendships, new university lives and old boyfriends (that is, except Kyle, because Kyle is American and adorable and perfect). It's Amber's new year's party and the first t [...]

    13. My favourite Spinster Club girls are back. But, everything is all wrong. Each girl is in bother, but time and distance has separated the gang, and they are not sharing their woes. I got frustrated, but it's a very real stage after school. The best of friendships are tested.This book is different to the others in the series as it has alternate points of view for each girl. Which worked really well, as the jumping around added another note of discord. As did the countdown to midnight. We are count [...]

    14. Buddy read rant with GabbyWell guess we can't blame the patriarchy for this debacle. If I cared enough I'd write a proper review. But I'm cranky. And this was annoying. And I've ranted a crap tonne to Gabby. So I'd like to forget about the Spinster Club series now. I still can't believe how good this series was in the beginning, how much I loved it And now it's a big old hot mess of irritating characters and ridiculous cliches And I'm done. one star, two stars. I don't know. Either way I don't r [...]

    15. So this was the first book I read in 2017! I stayed up till midnight to read this because I thought it would be fun to ring in the new year in my world at the same time as the girls in here rung in there new year. After the amazingness that the other three books held I was sooooo excited to read this installment. I thought I'd love it, that it would make me happy, and it would be the perfect end and finish to what is (was now?) one of my favourite series of all time. WELL HAHAHAHA GUESS HOW WRON [...]

    16. Thanks to Usborne for sending me the physical copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I honestly have no idea how to write the review of this book. I finished it a month ago and I'm still struggling with words.This book takes place a few months after the end of What's a Girl Gotta Do? and we learn at the start of the book that the Spinster Club girls have, somehow, kind of fallen apart. All of them are now keeping secrets and are not honest with each other. This has created, somewhat, [...]

    17. A really lovely goodbye to the characters of the trilogy. I love seeing where protagonists go in the future, and this is a great look at the rest of the lives of Lottie, Amber and Evie. Lottie is and always will be my fave, and her arc was definitely my favourite here too. I love that the romances of books don't always have happily ever afters in the way we sometimes imagine. It was also quite satisfying to get the emotional arcs of characters condensed into a novella instead of a full novel. So [...]

    18. Short but sweet. The Spinster Club are growing apart-that's life-but they are all desperate to cling to what's safe.Amber is about to take up her uni place in America, Lottie is struggling to find her feet in London and Evie is struggling to maintain her mental health when Ollie has a relapse and refuses to leave the house. None of the girls share their fears, and it leads to tension.Set over a few hours of a New Year's Eve party this was entertaining, and a quick glimpse into where these girls [...]

    19. I finished this book approx. 2 minutes ago and I’m still crying 😂 I really don’t want their stories to end 😭 I love the spinster club and I loved the way each character was written in this book. So many twists and turns which reflect on many teenagers life’s. Evie will forever be my favourite spinster and I will continue to read Holly Bournes work 😍

    20. Only reason I finished it was because I don't like leaving a book unfinished. It wasn't the worst book I have ever read but I've read better.

    21. Rating = 4.5*sYou can read this review in full here: bookendsandendings.wordpress.I absolutely loved the Spinster Club series, and I’ve been looking forward to reading this for a long time (I’ve been talking about it a lot, from November releases to Christmas recommendations), so you can imagine my delight when I received a copy of . . . And a Happy New Year? for Christmas. At first, I contemplated saving it for the fast approaching #SundayYAthon, as one of the challenges was to read a novel [...]
