50 ways to find a lover  

Thursday, 14 May 2009

Oh my, a friend of mine sent me this, she thought I’d enjoy it, bearing in mind my recently acquired addiction to blogging.

I got the kids to bed, climbed in the bath, turned to page one and started reading, I read the whole thing in one go, I only stopped to top up the water as it had gone cold and to tell Dave to go away…he kept banging on the door to ask me why I was laughing!

The Author describes the blogging addiction quite well, and has a great voice, her sense of humour, whilst being a bit near the mark at times, is great. I’ll look out for the next one….

The book
I feel like a failure. It's now been 351 days since I had sex. That's a carnal drought. If Bob Geldof knew about it he'd hold a concert.

Sarah Sargeant has been single for three years and nine months. She has just spent five months plucking up the courage to ask out a balding man with a paunch who works in her local pub. The gentleman in question informed her that he would rather stay in and watch the "Narnia" movie on DVD. Her pride has not just been bruised, it's been disembowelled. And she vows it's the last time she will ever reach out to a member of the opposite sex. But her family and friends have other ideas. They enter her into a reality TV show against her will, persuade her to go speed dating and even more radically, they encourage her to start a blog. Suddenly Sarah Sargeant is on a mission. A mission to explore 50 ways to find a lover.

About the Author
Lucy-Anne Holmes is an actress living in London. 50 Ways to Find a Lover had its genesis in Lucy's blog, www.spinstersquest.com, cataloguing her real-life love woes. She is currently working on her second novel, in which Sarah Sargeant heads to LA.

    Read the whole book in one sitting while soaking in a tub! Sounds like a recommendation and a mini vacation!

    LOL nice, I would love any advice I could get. Women are just plain out complicated which makes finding one even harder.

    As far as wanting to connect with Aaron, my suggestion is to ask him before you go to sleep to come to you in your dreams. See what happens.

    LOL melinda, yeah, my husband looked a little shocked at the title...and then when i kept laughing, i think he's paranoid...maybe i'll get some flowers later!!!(a flying pig just shot past the wondow then)

    thanks dragon, i'll try that later, i'll let you know how it goes....

    yeah, one sitting, i know, it sounds indulgent, but i kinda read fast so it only took an hour!!!
    mind you an hour more than i usually get!

    if someone wants the book, just e-mail me your address, and i'll send it to whoever e-mails first, then I'll write the address of the next people it has to go to in the cover...then everyone gets to read it...

    No, you don't have to ask out loud, You can just think it. I usually do that when I want to see my grandma. Now, she doesn't come everytime I ask her, or I just don't remember the dream so don't be discourage if you try the first couple times and it doesn't happen.
