Publisher's Summary

Emma and her friends are about to turn 30, and for Emma it's a defining moment. Defined, that is, by her having achieved none of the things she'd imagined she would. She's never jumped out of a plane, hasn't met the man she's going to marry or snogged anyone famous. As Emma hurtles towards her thirtieth, she discovers, with hilarious consequences, that some of them are trickier to tick off than she'd thought....

    "Terrible."

    Bad writing. Boring characters. Predictable storyline. Silly premise. And way too many ridiculous metaphors. Not recommended.

    "Fun, enjoyable read"

    This is the first book by Jane Costello that I have 'read' (listened to) and I really enjoyed it. The characters were likeable and well developed. I'd love to read/hear more books with these characters.

    The main character Emma is delightfully scatty who epitomises many women of that age.

    This was an easy girly read that I got more and more into as the story went on, so much so I didn't want it to end.

    Whilst this is a girly book I wouldn't recommend it for teenagers.

    Story
    "Careful what you wish for"
    If you could sum up The Wish List in three words, what would they be?

    Oh no don't. This book is a bit of a silly romp. having said that it is a good romp and great fum. lots going on at a great pace.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well you know more of Emma and see the world from her point of view, but Max and Emma's girl friends are well balanced characters. Amazingly for chick lit most of the men are great characters. Liverpool comes out very well too. The places described are real and true to life.


    What does Alex Tregear bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Positively she reads a great story negatively she drops in to an awful Scouse accent. I am a native It is my native language but at times it grated.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Its a book to laugh with. A perfect example of how humans can convinces them selves to do some pretty stupid things.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book. Yes its chicklit but it has some insights into human behavior and truths. Do we ever grow up? I would suggest not completely.

    "Struggled to finish"

    I found the story unchallenging . I wasn't intrigued by the ending. The main characters storyline stale.

    "Brilliant"

    Totally enjoyed listening to this book. Made me laugh out loud at some parts ( it good when you're sat alone on a crowded bus) and found myself agreeing with Emma at other parts.

    "Brilliant"

    This book has got a review from me, it's been funny to a point of laughing out loud, sad bits where I even had to get a tissue.
    Was shocked at some bits when I thought it was telling me own life.
    Never read any from this author but will check out others as this has been a lovely book, the narrator was clear bring the book to life.
    I got this on a buy one get one free and so please how good it's been.
