Review: HOLLY’s INBOX by Holly Denham

37673599From the back of the book:

Dear Holly, Are you sure you know what you’re getting into…?

It’s Holly Denham’s first day as a receptionist at a busy corporate bank, and frankly, it’s obvious she can’t quite keep up.

Take a peek at her email and you’ll see why: what with her crazy friends, dysfunctional family, and gossipy co-workers, Holly’s inbox is a daily source of drama. Laughter, friendship, and romantic interludes keep her going, until one day, Holly’s secret past begins to catch up with her…

Written entirely in emails, this compulsively readable UK smash hit will keep you laughing and turning the pages all the way to its surprising and deeply satisfying ending.

HOLLY’S INBOX is a very fun read. I was a little intimidated by the 600+ pages, but it read quicker than a normal book and it only took me a few pages to adjust to the email format. Holly is starting a new job at a big bank and has no clue what she is doing. The emails are funny from the very beginning as she deals with a snarky co-worker, her gay best friend, and her other best friend who is really a bit of a slutty lush. We follow Holly through the ups-and-downs at work, a relationship, and what is hopefully her happily-ever-after.

The tone of the book is very Bridget Jones. Being a British book about a single girl trying to get her happy ending this really wasn’t a surprise to me. They only bad thing was the ending fell a little flat for me. Luckily, there is another book and I have a copy:)

the book girl gives HOLLY’S INBOX a 4/5
