The Shape of Us by Drew Davies @Drew_Davies @bookouture #bookreview #pubday

Happy Tuesday and happy publication day to this quirky lovely story!

A huge thank you to Kim for my invitation to the tour and to Drew Davies four his wonderful words!🙂

My Thoughts

A unique and quirky look at life, love, and the pursuit of happiness, in London.

this book took four seemingly separate threads and slowly wove them into a beautiful story… The characters were all so well drawn and colorful… all different ages and in different stages in their lives… each character brought something new to the story, however I have to say I liked JoJo The Best… although I found Addams story the most compelling…. Daisy and Chris had the craziest first date EVER!and Dylan‘s story tugged at my heartstrings… four people appearing to be completely unconnected in the beginning, but the Author brought them all together brilliantly & beautifully….

Joe Joe is in her 60s and having an affair with her husband… yes her husband, she is trying to win him back from his mistress… some of my favorite parts of this book involve Jojo and mistress Belinda, they made quite the team…. JoJo’s struggle to take the highroad was at times quite hilarious… Adam lost his job and he ended up living in an office building, something about this story just completely fascinated me… Daisy and Chris are just starting out, I found this story quite sweet… Dylan is a teenager suffering from a chronic illness his life is quite shelter, however he still manages to fall in love with an older woman…. i’m sure you are wondering, how in the world are these stories connected? Well, you’re going to need to read this little gem to find out!

This was a unique story filled with unusual characters with unlikely connections…. a well constructed story, A lively puzzle that you piece together throughout the book…

Absolutely recommend when you want something a little different, a little refreshing, a little unique and a whole lot of wonderful!

About the Book

If you read one book this year, make it this hilarious and emotional novel about love, loss and second chances. Fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely FineThe Note and Jojo Moyes will be utterly charmed by this unique love story.

One day in London…

Daisy is rushing to work when a stranger on a bicycle almost knocks her over – and then asks for her number.

Dylan, a teenage boy, lives with an illness which means he can’t leave his bedroom – but which hasn’t stopped him from falling hopelessly in love.

JoJo, a wife in her sixties, is trying desperately to win her beloved husband back from his mistress.

Adam has recently lost his job and lies to his housemate about where he goes every day.

These four total strangers – whose paths cross in the charming city of London – have one thing in common. They are all lonely souls looking for love. But what are the chances of them actually finding it?

An absolutely unputdownable, uplifting and unforgettable book-club read for anyone who has ever made a mistake, been broken-hearted, or waited by their phone for it to ring.
