The Single Girl's To-Do List by Lindsey Kelk

5 Star

Rachel Summers loves a to-do list:
Boyfriend
Flat
Great job

NOT on the list:
Being dumped

Best friends Emelie and Matthew ride to her rescue with an entirely new kind of list - The Single Girl′s To-Do List. Rachel doesn′t know it, but it will take her on all kinds of wild adventures - and get her in some romantic pickles too. And then it won′t be a case of what but who she decides to tick off...

Mr. bendy yoga instructor
Mr. teenage sweetheart
Mr. persistent ex
Mr. deeply unsuitable

The Single Girl′s To-Do List gives Rachel the perfect heartbreak cure - and proves love is out there if you′re willing to take a chance.

So, I really just want to write my review as:

“Buy this book.  Now.” 

That’s how much I loved The Single Girl's To-Do List.  I think I loved it even more than the I Heart series – shocking, I know – and it wasn’t just due to the fact that there was a little bit of a Toronto connection... 


Rachel’s character captured my heart.  I instantly related to her and rooted for her every step of the way while she mended her broken heart.  Not a typical road to recovery consisting of ice cream, tears and horrific renditions of ‘All by Myself’, the ‘Single Girl’s To-Do List’, concocted by her two best friends, helped Rachel rediscover who she is, how much she is capable of and opened her eyes to all that she wants to do. Not to mention provided much amusement and many laughs along the way.

Rachel’s best friends, Emelie and Matthew were constant sources of wisdom and giggles and as much as they all might have all bickered, their love for each other came shining through. I loved the throw back to classic chick lit with the gay best friend and loved their characters just as much as Rachel’s. 

The love interests were laughable and loveable and sometimes even surprising, which I enjoyed. The connection to the I Heart series (no spoilers!) was fun and the ending had me grinning from ear to ear.  I will definitely be rereading this book at some point and that’s not something I say lightly given time constraints and the continuous stack of books beside my bed demanding to be read.

The Single Girl's To-Do List had me smiling, laughing, giggling and cheering. Have I said I loved it already?  I have?  Well, I can’t stop gushing.  I loved it. I’m not sure I’ll ever stop reading Lindsey Kelk.  Ever...

Thank you to HarperCollins Canada for the review copy!  All opinions are our own.
