    Although I’ve read hundreds of amazing reviews of Jojo Moyes’s books and everyone I know adores her stories, I’ve never had the chance – or the time – to pick them up myself. So when

    was released as part of the

    initiative, I jumped at the opportunity and decided to give it a go.

    With only 95 pages, Moyes’s novel is a super quick read. Just like the rest of the Quick Reads titles,

    is aimed at those who, for whatever reason, find reading a difficult and daunting task. However, it doesn’t mean that you, as a bookworm who can easily devour a book in a day, won’t enjoy it. In fact, it’s perfect for days when you’re running errands and you know there will be some waiting time here and there. Whether you need to pop into the post office, do the school run or you’re about to go on a quick lunch break, it’s a perfect companion. I loved the fact that I could read during my lunch break without having to carry a 400-page long hardback with me, like I did the week before.

    As for the novel itself, one of the things that surprised me the most about this book is how much Moyes managed to pack into such a short story. A few chapters in, I already felt like I knew Nell and her friends – and it was great to see how much she’s changed by the end. There are authors who struggle with character development even though they have at least 300 pages to work with, and Moyes only had 95. Yet, I didn’t feel as if something was missing or as if the characters lacked depth.

    Ok, this one was pretty good. I was expecting not to like it,like with Dead Man Talking, but I thought this was great fun.

    I can recommend as a quick read, though for someone who struggles with reading it's a great start for getting into it.

    This was a cute, quick and easy read. I really liked this story. I am impressed that Jojo Moyes fit everything into 96 pages.

    I loved the plot. I would love to read more stories like this one. I think stories that involve a connection between strangers have so much potential but they usually always have insta-love. This story didn't have any insta-love and that's probably why I liked it so much. Moyes did an excellent job with the execution of this book.

    I liked the characters. Again, I just want to say how impressed I am that Jojo Moyes fit everything into 96 pages. The characters were a little clichéd but they weren't one-dimensional. I loved how Nell pushed herself and there was good character development in the book.

    I liked Jojo Moyes's writing. The language she used was simple but it still flowed very beautifully. I didn't do any skimming and I didn't lose interest. I think Jojo Moyes has a way with words. Even though the story was predictable, I was still interested in it and that was down to the writing. I just became so engrossed in the story and the characters. I also liked the ending. Moyes didn't try to wrap everything up in a pretty bow, she left their story unwritten.

    I would recommend this book to people who are looking for something quick/easy or if you're a Jojo Moyes/romance fan. It's good.

    Such a cute, speedy read. For such a short story it's really well developed. Sometimes the whole being in "the right place at the right time" thing can be very cliche but because this was a short story it worked really well. I feel like this would make such a perfect movie! This was every romantic movie I've ever watched but I loved it!!

    I enjoyed this short story featuring Nell as she embarks on an ill fated weekend getaway with her unreliable boyfriend to the most romantic city in the world.

    At under a hundred pages, it was entirely readable in less than an hour. When Nell arrives in Paris, having been abandoned by said boyfriend, she is faced with two options - stay, and make the most of her time there or catch the first train home to London. Luckily for the reader, she stays and meets a very handsome Frenchman! Just who does

    Short. Sweet. Ideal for chick lit fans.

    This is a light and funny collection of one novella and several short stories. I prefer the depth of novels, but if you’re looking for quick, short reads, this is fun.

    Moyes is able to give intriguing glimpses into her characters’ lives in very brief tales. In a couple of the stories, married life does not seem appealing at all. The short story Holdups is particularly funny, but there are a lot of hilarious lines throughout the book.

    There isn’t a ton of depth here, but it was definitely an enjoyable read. This book reminded me of the work of Marian Keyes, an author I adore.
