So I never do reviews. Like ever. I did one ages ago and I was looking back on it and it wasn’t as atrocious as I thought it would be. So congrats 13 year old me, you were a cool kid.
So if you’ve been reading my blog from the beginning or maybe even not so long ago, you’ve heard about Claire.
And if you haven’t yet here are a few posts with her name in them:
But to summarise she’s the most incredible human being and my cake sister and she’s a really special person in my life.

So… umm…Claire wrote a series
Purchase The Dating Process
Check out Claire’s blog
My favourite person in the world spent the majority of last year writing a series: The Dating Process
Sometime around my birthday she told me she wanted to dedicate it to me and I didn’t think she was joking but it wasn’t until I opened the first book and read the dedication that it sunk in. I cried. Like A LOTTTTT. I turned into a waterfall for half an hour basically.
I read the entire series in a week.
And maybe I’m a tad biased because I love her so much but it’s one of my favourite series ever!! And that’s saying something because I’m super picky. Despite me trying to prepare myself to read a series by one the best writers I know, I was blown away, there just aren’t enough words.
It’s witty and beautiful and a lot of parts hit me hard. So although review might not be as good as others you’ve read, I tried, really damn hard to make it good
➸ Jack and Alice
Like tumble head over over heels fall down a rabbit hole type fall for Jack. And then there was Alice, and it genuinely felt like I was staring at a reflection of me and my life (specifically my relationship with my dad and my half siblings) and it hurt but it also made me feel comforted and not alone and it was everything I needed and more. Plus I totally shipped them even if I did want Jack for myself #Jalice
➸OTP of The Year Award Goes To…
I genuinely have never read a book with a better duo and I read 100+ books a year. The chemistry between Jack and Tommy was magical, I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard at some point during the kitchen conversation I WAS CRYING! This was the OTP I needed and Claire delivered and you need to read it for yourself because it was precious!
I was going “YASS QUEEN!’ and”Mhmm” and nodding with approval the whole time. I was all for it, every step of the way. It was like this no BS guide to feminism. And I want everyone to read it, I want to go around the world shoving copies of The Dating Process into the hands of everyone but especially teens because the messages in each book are so important.
People always say…
Don’t hate the player, hate the game.
Don’t play games with the girl who can play better.
I never wanted to start dating. I got tricked. (Emotionally blackmailed, actually.) By one of my very best friends.
I wasn’t exactly thrilled about it. I actively didn’t want to date anybody. I especially didn’t want to date some loser who was desperate to be set up with me.
I. Just. Wasn’t. Interested.
Then I heard something.
And straight away I knew…
Those guys? They weren’t your average losers. They were up to something.
And me? Well, I wasn’t about to let them get away with it.
