...And A Happy New Year?


All of you might know that I love The Spinster Club Series so much! I love Evie, Amber, and not-so-much for Lottie :D

I thought What's A Girl Gotta Do is the last book in The Spinster Club series but Holly Bourne just published The Spinster Club Special with title "...And A Happy New Year" (The Spinster Club #3.5)

I knew about this novel from Goodreads. Thank you Goodreads for giving me email regarding new books from the author I've read. Kalau tidak, sampai sudah aku tak tahu kewujudan novel ini. Suka sangat bila tahu ada novel seterusnya mengenai mereka bertiga. Terus beli online di MPH ☺

As usual, let's start with the synopsis and followed by review ☺


SYNOPSIS 

Kisah mengenai tiga gadis bernama Evie, Amber, dan Lottie. Mereka berpisah kerana masing-masing membawa diri untuk belajar di kolej. Disebabkan itu, hubungan mereka semakin renggang.

Masing-masing menyimpan rahsia hidup mereka setelah melangkah ke alam universiti/kolej. 

Sempena menyambut New Year Eve, Amber mengadakan New Year's Eve party with Kyle, her US boyfriend. 

Secara ringkasnya, novel ini berkisar mengenai perjalanan hidup mereka dari jam 7 malam sehingga selepas tengah malam. 

A new year with The Spinster Club! 


REVIEW 

Tak puas! Tak puas bila dah habis baca novel ni sebab sikit sangat pages nya. Hanya 200 pages saja. Sedih bila kisah The Spinster Club sudah berakhir :(

My favourite three girls are drifting. Seriously. They are not sharing each other stories anymore because they are too busy keeping up with their lives. 

And I love how Holly Bourne brings them back together to discuss their problem and suddenly things get easier. They can handle it. 

Evie. How many times I told you guys that I love Evie? Haha. I love her so much! She's drowning in this novel. Her life is getting better but Oli, her boyfriend is getting worst and it's impacting her and them. She struggled to face her problem alone because she could not trust Amber and Lottie enough to tell them about Oli. She also didn't want them to know about Oli's problem and ask her to leave Oli. 

Amber. Life is good for her. Still dating Kyle, the sexiest and caring man from US. Get offered to further study in an art college in US and she didn't have a gut to tell Evie and Lottie about that. Definitely, she will separating from them. And the worst thing happened, when Lottie found out about that during the New Year Eve's party. Pergaduhan pun meletus dengan jayanya. 

Lottie. Pity her. Orang lain akan nampak kehidupan dia sangat sempuna. A freshie dan sudah ada her own column dalam surat khabar universiti. Ada boyfriend bernama Will tapi sayangnya Will semakin menjauhkan diri dan minta putus pada malam tahun baru. Lottie juga tidak disukai oleh housemates nya dan ini menyebabkan dia tidak pernah menjemput Evie dan Amber ke universiti dan ini membuatkan mereka bertiga juga semakin jauh. 


The words that I loved in this novel: 

"The later you leave it, the harder it will be." - Kyle

"Because someone you loved said the right thing. That's what I loved about us. How we got each other. How there were no questions, no disbelief, no confusion. I totally and utterly understood him, and him me. We were weirdos, but we'd found each other." - Evie

"I just don't want to be the reason you give up your life. You've got to do this for you, not for me, not for us. I love you too much to watch you leave everything just for me." - Kyle

"I missed us... Lottie, Evie, and me. All together. Always there for each other. Always honest with each other. Always." - Amber 

"There was a wall where there never used to be even a line. There was a silence when there never used to be a held tongue." - Evie

"You're the crazy one, being left behind. The crazy ones always get left behind." - Evie

"Sad for me - lost, silly me. Who couldn't leave their hometown, who couldn't get on planes, who couldn't have adventures, who had a boyfriend who couldn't even leave the house. My stupid tiny life which will always be stupid and tiny because my brain won't let it be anything. I thought I was doing okay. I thought I was getting there. But all I was doing was getting left behind." - Evie

"Things were falling apart because we'd been keeping things from each other. Because we'd been trying to face up to things alone rather than facing them together. That's why the threads were breaking. We'd gone off and started new lives and we were too scared to say, not only to ourselves, but to each other, that these lives weren't going to plan." - Evie

"I thought of what we'd been through since then, the stories we'd made, the people we'd met, how much we'd learned - and yet, tonight we'd learned even more." - Evie

"Life would keep moving on. Things were going to change and evolve. And I was okay with that, as long as we put the work in to make sure our friendship changed and evolved with it." - Evie



Review aku mengenai dua buah buku dalam The Spinster Club series:

Am I Normat Yet? (The Spinster Club #1)
How Hard Can Love Be? (The Spinster Club #2)
What's A Girl Gotta Do? (The Spinster Club #3) -- tiada review kerana aku tak habis lagi baca novel ni :D

Aku suka sangat dengan series ini. Sangat! Masing-masing ada karakter sendiri dan berlainan antara satu sama lain. Ini membuatkan mereka melengkapi each other. Love. Love. Love. And I'm jealous that I didn't have Evie, Amber, and Lottie at my school :(

Let's make sure every year is the Year of the Spinster ❤
