Living my best li(f)e by Claire Frost #BlogTour #ProvidedForReview @annecater @FabFrosty #LivingMyBestLife

I was delighted to be invited to join the Blog Tour for Living my best li(f)e by Claire Frost – Thank you! And thank you for my copy of the book.

Book Blurb:

This heart-warming and funny novel is the perfect balm for the Insta-weary mind – get ready to shatter the illusion that is #LivingMyBestLife.

Bell never thought she’d be facing her 40th birthday single. Recently dumped by her boyfriend of ten years, she’s struggling to move on with her life – and surrender the fleecy pyjamas she’s been living in since January. Sick of being bombarded by #blessed on social media and feeling like her life doesn’t live up to everyone else’s, she decides it’s time for a change; time to find out who she really is, not who she thinks she should be.

Millie is a successful online influencer posting under the handle @mi_bestlife, but as a single mum trying to make ends meet and stay ahead of the younger generation snapping at her heels, her Instagram feed is far more #BestLie than #BestLife. With internet trolls attempting to bring her down and an ex who cares more about playing football than seeing their son, Millie begins to wish her life was more like her filters.

It isn’t until Millie and Bell’s paths cross that the two women begin to realise what they’re missing. Will Bell finally learn to live life for herself? And will Millie see that she needs to start living for the moment and not for the likes?

The blurb sounds great, right?!?

And I enjoyed it.

It was an easy book to read and just what i needed after reading a lot of crime, mystery and post-apocalyptic fiction. Something lighter, something funny and something focused on friendship and love.

Living My Best Li(f)e by Claire Frost is a novel about fast and firm friendships, community and friends working towards a better future. As well as dealing with the often addictive nature of social media and how life can be drastically different to how it appears online.

I loved both Bell and Millie and I enjoyed the alternating POVs from chapter to chapter. I thought the writing was great and although the story was a tad predictable, it was a fun read.

My only one small complaint was with a character name. I disliked the name Wolf! Millie named her beautiful little boy – Wolf. And called him Wolfie. I found it grating.

A solid, good read.

Claire Frost grew up in Manchester, the middle of three sisters. She always wanted to do a job that involved writing, so after studying Classics at Bristol University she started working in magazines. For the last 10 years she’s been at The Sun On Sunday’s Fabulous magazine, where she is Assistant Editor and also responsible for the title’s book reviews. She can mostly be found at her desk buried under a teetering TBR pile.
