Happy publication day to the brilliant The Worst Couple In The World by Holly Tierney Bedord. Oh and there’s a US Giveaway too!
What they say: No longer content to just be Snappigram sensations, folk hop singers Zeke and Angelique are ready to move up from coffee house performances to the big stage. With songs like “Uh Huh, Future Baby Mama” and “Don’t Worry About the Bills, Little Missus” there’s pretty much no way they can fail.
But if their musical career takes off, will it leave their love behind?
This satirical novella about an over-the-top fame hungry duo is for fans of David Sedaris and Don DeLillo.
The Review: Many of you will know by now that Holly Tierney Bedord is a staple favourite here on BRMaycock’s book blog. You’ll remember I jumped for the choose your own ending type book Weekend Immune System (review here), got swept away with the romance in a wrestling ring in Boots on The Ground (review here ) and seriously fell for the advice handed out by an agony aunt in the Christmas gem The Snowflake Valley Advice Fairy (review here). I liked her so much I was thrilled to actually have her on my blog with an excellent interview (here). As a result when I saw she was teaming up with the brilliant Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources (thanks to her for the book in return for an honest review) I squealed, jumped, and danced around a little. (Yes, really!)
All of this author’s books are different and this was no exception, as we meet Zeke and Angelique, a very modern couple who are soo in love and want the world to know it. They post everything and enjoy meeting their fans as they take to the stages performing gigs to not so huge audiences in questionable venues.
While both are misguided and slightly dippy or ditzy, they were a lovely couple with a lot of heart. I loved that while both could be extremely loud, brash and diva-ish, they were still really nice people who were just out to make it to the big time.
There were of course many bumps in the road, with the promise of fame bringing a bit of a diversion in their relationship and I almost read through my fingers at times, praying they would make it. The perfect read and a book I flew through, smiling, laughing and all the time hoping for a happy ending. Loved it!
