You may remember in my post about Reading for Relaxation and Self Care  that I set wanted to get back into reading so I was thrilled to be be able to take part in the recent book tour of “The Wrong Side of Twenty Five” by Kate Armitage.

With news feeds full of perfect pouts, hot-dog legs and the self-proclaimed hashtag-blessed, it’s hard not to feel inadequate. How has everyone figured out how to live their best life except you?
That’s what Kylie wants to know. She thought she would spend her twenty-fifth birthday having a mini-break not a mini-breakdown. After an evening of finger-food and snide remarks, Kylie decides that things must change. Naturally, Alexa disagrees. She doesn’t think anything needs to change and is quite happy plodding on with her best friend by her side. So, when everything changes for the better for Alexa, while it’s going from bad to worse for Kylie; will it tear them apart?

I loved this book and finished it within 48hrs of starting it. I always thought that by the time I was 25 – I would be married and have a few kids. Haha I was so wrong! This is why I was drawn to this book. The main characters Kylie and Alexa are so relateable – both have idea’s about how their lives should be yet as we find out the grass is not always greener on the other side.

Although this book is a work of fiction I think most females in their late 20’s and early 30’s will relate to Alexa and Kylie and enjoy the book. If you want to find out more about the author Kate Armitage then please do check out her website at www.katearmitageauthor.com or find her on twitter at www.twitter.com/itskatearmitage

And if you want to have a read for yourself (and I really recomend you do) then you can buy “The Wrong Side of Twenty Five” on Amazon  now.

    This sounds like a good read! I’d like to start an actual ‘book club’ to encourage me to read more.

    I like books that show us the grass is not always greener on the other side. It just goes to show that we all progress at different stages and this should not be dictated by our age. Age has no limitations!

    This sounds like just the book for me. I went a bit wild form the age of 25-28 and made up for lost time when I was a timid teenager. Will have to pick up a copy

    Oooh this is a book for me, I’m so glad I read your post because I have just got back into reading and need to branch out author wise, I get stuck in a rut of reading the same persons writing. I do love a read that’s relatable, I’m 28 and have a child but by no means do I have my life together, haha! I’ll be popping this book in my basket on amazon asap!

    I’ve heard good things about this book from friends but it’s not really my thing. And I’m well past the wrong side of 25!

    This sounds like a great book and the fact that you finished so quickly says a lot. I might be a bit older but I’m sure I will find things I can relate to in it
