By SAMAMA, Aug 26 2020 06:26PM
Love and Chocolate Biscuits is a story about Polly, a sweet 35 year old woman living in a peaceful city in Hampshire, U.K, still searching for her one true love. So online dating is one option she goes for. In a platform full of weirdos, she dreams of finding someone special in there one day – even after going through multiple terrible dates! She loves working out and going out on adventures, but she also loves eating, so slimming up for a slimming group is a little tricky yet a funny ordeal for her. But she doesn’t let it affect her, as long as Polly is happy, these things barely matter.
This book was such a sweet, simple and fluffy piece of artwork. It made me feel happy and light hearted. I loved how simple yet fun Polly’s lifestyle was, and I was instantly in love with her quirky personality. I could so relate myself to her, even though we were from totally different sides of the world. She was a foodie, and she was proud of it, so much so that sometimes her outrageous eating choices made me laugh.
The atmosphere of Hampshire described in this book sounded so breezy and comfortable, especially for someone as me who’s lived in a place with hot winds and huge skylines every day. The description was so profound that it felt like I was there myself, and I didn’t even need to travel all the way to Europe.
There came a day between my read when I couldn’t pick up the book for the whole day as I had a lot of work to do, but all I could do throughout that day was think about ‘What will she do next?’ and ‘What will she say next?’
I do wish the ending of the book wasn’t so rushed out though, I wish I had been gifted more details on Polly’s life by the end. However, because the book entertained me so much, it’s a 4.5 out of 5 stars from me.
P.S. I have to say this. I’m so mad that people don’t know about this beautiful, adorable book. I am so sad to know that this book is sitting idly in a store, untouched and unloved by readers because it wasn’t hyped enough. So as a book blogger, I want to HYPE HYPE HYPE this book and let you know that you’ll thoroughly enjoy it, I am sure.
