Publisher's Summary

Phoebe Henderson may be single but she sure doesn’t feel fabulous. It’s been a year since she found her boyfriend Alex in bed with another woman, and multiple cases of wine and extensive relationship analysis with best friend Lucy have done nothing to help. Faced with a new year but no new love, Phoebe concocts a different kind of resolution.

The List: 10 things she’s always wanted to do in bed but has never had the chance (or the courage!) to try. A bucket list for between the sheets. One year of pleasure, no strings attached. Simple, right? Factor in meddlesome colleagues, friends with benefits, getting frisky al fresco, and maybe, possibly, true love and Phoebe’s got her work cut out for her.

What the Critics Say

"Sexy, smart and scandalous, The List charts one woman's odyssey through her bedroom blind-spots - and what a ride it is! Funny and frisky, I'd recommend to anyone with a taste for adventure" (Victoria Fox, author of Temptation Island)

    Love listening to ebooks in the car on the daily commute. Favourites are trilogy's that keep me entertained for months

    "mediocre"

    I found this story as a thin storyline punctuated with coarse sex talk to keep you engaged. A little like a comedian who relies on obscentities to get the laughs.
    Overall it was ok, and I wanted to see how our silly heroine ended up.. it could have swung either way.
    Its a shame that some people feel this is how women are today, and worthy of centering in a novel as I know for sure I am not one of them... Perhaps why I found this story a farce rather than believable.

    Story
    "Girlie yes, but great humour & tips for Blokes"

    Damn what AN AWESOME READ!! It's not the kind that'll mesmerise you keep you reading till you drop cold - no, it was I book I chose to savour. I'd happily read it a few times over. This book got me giggling and even laughing out loud in public and everywhere!! I will not drop any spoilers, at all; simply know this: it's about a progressive young 30's woman writing an account of her new year's resolutions for the year ahead. We go through her life based on the hysterical details she writes in a journal such as those about sexual encounters, Stuart's bottom and other things, making it an extremely light , very soft porn. Hazardous pointers only relay to bad food cooked by one Lucy. It has the sexual tenacity of Sex and the City, but with the reality of an everyday single woman trying to get it right - the 'it' being very girls dream: a handsome bloke who's not only great in the sack, but a soulmate too! Set up mainly in the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow, and bringing in other parts of Scotland, this book is undoubtedly fresh as the Highlands air and is quirky, young, sexually appealing with every possibility that it could have actually been someone's real life journey. It appealed to me most because it reflects a common point in every woman's life when we seek to re-identify and reconnect to ourselves, when we seek to stop being the giver of sexual pleasure, but seek also to be the recipient, when we seek to actually stop faking it and, actually have orgasms. But it's also a book about the importance of having true friends and making some, albeit unexpectedly, along the way, and having a support network to help you get up when you've fallen.
    This is supposed to be Joanna Bolouri's debut I believe. I pity her only because she;s set the bar really high on this. but with kind of wit and excellent book-writing abilities, I think she will come at us with another prizewinner. And yes, THIS IS a FANTASTIC book to be made in our own movie, even series!!

    The narration I must add, was fabulous!

    Story
    "Funny and entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to The List the most enjoyable?

    The frankness of her explanations and the banter between characters


    What other book might you compare The List to, and why?

    None really, sorry!


    What about Caroline Guthrie’s performance did you like?

    She really gave the book humour which kept me listening to a bit of an overall predictable story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some moments really made me laugh


    Any additional comments?

    The story is overall predictable but I kept on listening because it was funny and entertaining. Really frank in some parts but banter between characters is great!

    "Absolutely Amazing!"

    I was totally hooked on this book. Absolutely loved the narrator, she really made the character real for me and I ended up thinking in a Scottish accent for a few days! ... But superbly written, I connected with the main character and really felt like I was living it too. Can't wait to read/listen to more by this author. 100/100.

    "Great wee book, (has adult content) funny & quirky"

    Picked this book randomly & glad I did. It was a great read & the narrator's scottish accent was so easy to listen to. I didn't know it had adult content in it but it was handled very well, nothing too coarse. I'd love to know what happens next!
