      Nice and cute story about Delia who goes through some heart-breaking events in life and is forced to change direction and make some choices. I wouldn't say that this novel was absolutely mind-blowing, but it was definitely interesting, relaxing and at times quite funny. I was expecting a chick-lit novel, and that was exactly what I got. "It's Not Me, It's You" did become quite predictable, especially towards the end, and it wasn't as hilarious as I had heard it would be. Still, I loved how this [...]

      Okay, so, me giving a Mhairi McFarlane book ALL THE STARS is getting boring and commonplace, I know. But I wouldn't even want to buck the trend if I could. These books are such a high point, things to look forward to with indecent impatience, the Christmas dinner of my reading year. What was unexpected was 'It's Not Me, It's You' taking over as my favourite Mhairi read (putting it up there in my Top Reads Ever). I always love a Mhairi heroine and wish she was my best friend but Delia was just to [...]

      4,5. Me ha encantado. Por su planteamiento que podría haber estado cargado de clichés y sin embargo está lleno de escenas y diálogos que no esperas. Por el mérito e ingenio que tiene Mhairi. Es cierto que esperaba que el romance se insinuara un poco antes y éste no empieza a intuirse hasta la mitad del libro pero cuando aparece - y sobre todo a partir del 80% - tiene un efecto perfecto. El final es de lo mejorcito de la historia o puede que los protagonistas ya me hubieran conquistado y ne [...]

      4.5 stars - Incredible. I really loved it.While trudging through a 1000+ page novel by Dickens, I wanted something light and entertaining to read on the side. My trusted GR reviewers had raved about this one, and they were absolutely correct. It delivered and easily exceeded expectations.It starts off running when the main character, Delia, finds out her life-mate of 10 years has been having an affair. From there the author takes you on a delightful, heartfelt journey that travels though all kin [...]

      This was my first read from Mhairi McFarlane but I was very excited given how highly fellow bloggers speak of her work. I wasn't therefore put off the the book's 500+ pages. A book of that length has to be really good for me to invest my time, and actually time just flew by as I was reading this book, so engrossed was I in the world and characters that McFarlane has created.It's always a sign that you are onto a winner when you are laughing from the very first page. Very rarely does a book make [...]

      "Det var magien ved Ræven, den hjalp hende til at fokusere og få styr på sig selv, den fortalte en inspirerende historie. Den viste hende, hvad hun skulle sigte imod." 'Det er ikke mig, det er dig' er en af de sjoveste, mest hyggelige og styrkende bøger, jeg længe har læst. Bogen er realistisk og Delias stemme i historien var så ægte og jordnær, at hun kunne have været hvilken som helst kvinde - de følelser hun har, situationerne hun gennemgår og hvordan hun takler det hele, det kunn [...]

      This review can originally be found on Olivia's Catastrophe: olivia-savannah/20As soon as I saw this book on Edelweiss I had to request it! I had read You Had Me At Hello a while ago and absolutely loved it. Ever since then I discovered that this book was to be published the next year (this year) and I was anticipating it for SO long. And then finally I had it! I was a bit surprised that this chick-lit book was about 600 pages. What could possibly go on in this novel that needed so much detail a [...]

      There are books you read because they widen your horizons or make you think of things in a new light. Then, there are books you read because you want something dependable--you know how things are going to turn out and that's just a-okay. It's Not Me, It's You definitely falls into the latter group.The basis of this book is not unusual: Young woman's life is turned upside down (by a cheatin' boyfriend, of course) and heads off to the big city where her world is opened up and she realizes her own [...]

    • thebookbitch says:

      This was a very good Chick Lit book. The only problems I had with it was that it was a little bit too long and something that happened near the end of the book that left me wanting to smack Delia in the face and push her in front of a cab.

    • Yoda says:

      Mhairi McFarlane is simply incapable of writing a book I don´t love. This one was a bit slow in the beginning but I still enjoyed it.

    • Jacqueline says:

      I'm officially obsessed with this author. She's also kind of on shit list because, a) I've stayed awake until 2am two nights running - and on busy work week - because I was completely unwilling to leave the world inside of this book (her fault) and, b) the Parsnip incident*. Hard. Fucking. Limit.So anyway, thanks to the sleep deprivation, my eyes are now like pissholes in the snow and I've drifted into that strange, dreamlike state where I can't always be sure whether I'm awake or napping, but i [...]

      En charmig berättelse som får mig att vilja läsa mer av McFarlane. Inte hennes bästa men ändå bättre än många andra i samma genre.

    • Shelleyrae at Book'd Out says:

      Witty, charming and a little bittersweet, I really enjoyed It's Not Me, It's You, Mhairi McFarlane's third novel.Delia Moss brushes aside the lacklustre response from her partner of ten years when she proposes, after all he said 'yes' and that was all she wanted to hear. What she can't ignore is the text Paul erroneously sends to her minutes later; 'CShe's proposed. Don't know what to do. Meet tomorrow? Pxx'C, Delia discovers, is Celine, a twenty four year old student with whom Paul has been hav [...]

    • Irene says:

      Absolutely superb. I picked this book up this morning and haven't been able to put it down. Sharp witty dialogue that you have come to expect from this author.The heroine Delia was a joy to read about. This book starts off in Newcastle and I love the Geordies, great sense of humour. It's quite a long book but by no means did it drag in fact my time flew by today reading it.What would you do after ten wonderful years with your partner, you plan to propose to then find out he's not the man you tho [...]

      This was EASILY the best book for me to read while holding Penelope for hours so she would sleep. It clocks in at 531 pages, so a bit longer than I usually enjoy, but it was so good. I don't even know where to start with the review to fully convince you to purchase this baby, but I'm going to try. The story is about Delia, who has been with her boyfriend Paul for years. She has gotten tired of waiting for a proposal from him so she decides to buck tradition and ask him to marry her. She's got th [...]

      This was quite a long story. But a nice one!It's about Delia Moss from Newcastle, who proposes to her boyfriend Paul. Being together for ten years, Delia is sure that Paul is The One, but when she pops the question he seems a bit less enthusiastic than she was hoping for. Shortly after she receives a text message from Paul, which was obviously meant for another womanThe next thing she knows, Delia flees to London to live with her best friend Emma for a while. But her life in the big city isn't r [...]

      Originally on my blog: ilovedthisbookHow delightful are the characters in Mhairi McFarlane's books? I can't even tell you. Three books now and I have been delighted by all of her characters. Her writing style in this book is the same as in her previous two. She writes a TON of little asides that go way over my head. However, her characters shine and make me want to read and read and read and then cry when there is no more to read. Thank you Edelweiss for the review copy.

    • Diem says:

      Love, love, love, love. Fantastic heroine, hero and supporting cast. The last 6 chapters were so stressful for me. I stopped every few pages gasping for air. However, I couldn't have asked for a better ending.

    • Jenniferxoxo says:

      So ein tolles Buch, eine traurige und zugleich witzige Geschichte mit einer unglaublich charmanten und witzigen, pfiffigen Protagonistin :)

    • María Montesinos says:

      Muy bonito, muy bien construida la historia que comienza quizás algo dubitativa pero, según avanza, todo va encajando y tomando más fuerza hasta llegar a la parte final. A mí personalmente me gustan mucho este tipo de novelas que combinan historia romántica con otras tramas paralelas, ya sean laborales o policíacas o de otro tipo, y eso Mhairi creo que lo hace bastante bien ( con crítica incluida a la falta de escrúpulos de algunos políticos y empresarios y a la "construcción de notici [...]

      After reading Mhairi McFarlane‘s first two books, You Had Me At Hello and Here’s Looking At You, I had pretty much fallen in love with her as an author. Genuinely funny and heartwarming chick lit, with characters that felt like real people – what’s not to like? Needless to say, I had high hopes for It’s Not Me, It’s You… and it did not disappoint.Delia has been with her boyfriend Paul for 10 years when she decides to propose to him. Unfortunately it isn’t a memorable evening in t [...]

    • Puty says:

      I really really really like this book but I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because nothing was really new (that kind of 'new' you can use if you need to describe this book in a sentence 3 years later). The topic (trying to move on and stand on your feet again after finding out that your permanent boyfriend slept with another girl), the characters (the cheerful, silly, interesting girl who was too cute to realize that she got people falling in love with her), the settings (London vs Newcastle) [...]

    • Patrizia says:

      Ein guter Mix aus Liebeschaos und Witz. Das Buch hat mich super unterhalten.Ein richtiges Chick lit Book, ein riesen Liebeschaos mt einem Hin und Her und eine gute Portion Witz. Die Hauptprotagonistin Delia ist ein bisschen naiv und glaubt immer an das Gute im Menschen:) man muss sie einfach mögen. Dann ist ihr blöder Ex, ein Fremdgänger mit ein paar guten Seiten und dann ist da noch der Badboy alles vorhanden. Das Buch startet mit einem Heiratsantrag von Delia an Paul, welcher nur mässig [...]

    • Emer says:

      Ugh this book!! It drove me nuts!! I can see the potential that the author has and how other books that she has written might be funbut the main character here, Deliaoh I wanted to slap her!! She just got on my wick. She's all "it's not me its you" but I hate to break it to you Delia but it was ALL you!! I don't think I can even do a proper review of this book she annoyed me so much! How anyone could stay working for that sleaze ball boss of hers and then actually end up protecting himUGHHHH no [...]

    • Eva says:

      A well written nice and easy feel-good book. It is chick-lit so it follows a certain formula, but that's exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted a "beach-read" (even though without the beach unfortunately). Delia's doubts about what went wrong in her relationship and whether or not she can forgive her boyfriend of 10 years for having an affair, were portrayed really well. The boyfriend wasn't the super villain that made me scratch my head why she had fallen in love with him in the first pl [...]

    • Jenna says:

      This book made me both laugh and cry, which was rather awkward considering I was listening to the audiobook on a long-haul flight (I'm talking ugly-sobbing here). The plot was by turns utterly heartbreaking and completely hilarious, and the cast of characters were just wonderful. I really empathised with Delia and the tough choices she had to make. And I have no words for how much I loved Adam. He totally got under my skin. The audiobook narration by Julia Barrie was really effective. I didn't w [...]
