*****

'Turning thirty is like playing musical chairs. The music stops, and everyone just marries whoever they happen to be sitting on.'

Who the f*ck is Tori Bailey?

There's no doubt that Tori is winning the game of life. She's inspired millions of women to stick two fingers up at convention with her bestselling memoir, and she has the perfect relationship to boot.

But Tori Bailey has been living a lie.

Everyone around her is getting married and having babies, but her long-term boyfriend won't even talk about getting engaged. And when her best friend Dee - her plus one, the only person who understands the madness - falls in love, suddenly Tori's in terrifying danger of being left behind.

When the world tells you to be one thing and turning thirty brings with it a loud ticking clock, it takes courage to walk your own path.

It's time for Tori to practise what she's preached, but the question is: is she brave enough?

*****

Praise for How Do You Like Me Now?

  • Truly a f***ing good novel - Evening Standard

  • It is so good! It is so honest about being a woman and all the things that are expected of us ... I enjoyed it very much.

  • The most perceptive book I have ever read about the female interior

  • Honest and unflinching - Stylist

  • There's a duality in reading things that are super relatable - it feels great to be heard, but also a little exposing. There's a little bit of that in Holly Bourne's latest novel, but nothing will stop you getting to the end...This novel is funny, touching and searingly honest - Grazia

  • Injected with such reality it can't help but be hilarious - Times

  • Relatable for any woman navigating emotional time bombs - Red

  • I haven't been this obsessed with a book in years. It's painfully funny, real, but also heartbreaking. Get this book now or be the loser who can't join in when everyone else is talking about it.
