How are you today? Good I hope. I feel like I haven’t asked that in ages! It is Saturday, so that can only mean one thing, it is time for another book review. this week it is the turn of another book review. this week it is the turn of the final book in a trilogy that I absolutely adore. So, without further ado, here is my review for Wilde Women by Louise Pentland. Let’s do this!
I am so sad to be saying goodbye to this story. I have been with it since the start and t sucks that it has come to an end. But I have to say, this book ended the series perfectly. I picked this trilogy up on a whim, I never expected to enjoy it as much as I did.
I will be 100% honest with you and admit that whole I enjoyed this book, it was probably my least favourite book of the trilogy. it just wasn’t quite as good as the first two books. it didn’t pack as much of a punch and, in my opinion, it was kind of predictable. I mean, the first two had predictable moments, but not as much as this one. Please don’t get me wrong. I did still enjoy this book, just not as much as I was expecting too. the main thing that disappointed me with this book was how it handed some of the harder topics. It didn’t do it badly, but at the same time, it did not do it as well as the previous books. I was just a bit underwhelmed. Whereas with the previous books the big issues where a part of the story and felt very natural, in this book they felt more like plot devices just being used to move the story forward, if that makes sense. They felt slightly forced. And it ended up making the whole book feel a little bit disjointed and rushed, like it was just trying to move the story forward as quick as it could.
But if I ignore that and focus on the book at its bade level, I did enjoy it. I got through it in under 24 hours and ended up laughing out loud at, just like with the other two books. this series is very/all character driven and this book was no exception. I feel like it wrapped the character’s stories up really well. throughout this trilogy we have seen Robin grow and change so much as a character. She has gained confidence and a belief in herself. She’s embraced motherhood and allowed love back into her life. she’s come out of herself, he safe space and is really embracing life. it has been brilliant watching this. I have also loved that we have got to see her still have blips and low moments. It is refreshing to see depression portrayed accurately, with its highs and lows and no instant cure. It takes time and I love that this series shows that.
All in all, I am sad to be saying goodbye to this series but I feel like Robin’s story has naturally come to its end. If you want an easy to read, funny series that can still pack a punch then you should read this one
