Quick Description: Light and funny

Perfect for: Lazy afternoons

Steam?: Mild

Plot: Ramona Rawlings is going to make dating fun again. Armed with an alphabet poster, post-it notes and her best friend Emma, Ramona is going to date the alphabet – from A to Z, Archie to Zolon and everything in between.

Throw in the chaos of managing a theatre restaurant with a roster full of strong personalities, unfulfilled dreams and lustful hook ups and Ramona’s world is turned upside-down.

Can you believe that this is my first time reading Australian contemporary? It was fun picking up some new lingo. And that was simply what this book was- fun. Ramona is a hilarious narrator surrounded by a bunch of zany but lovable characters. It was a light and amusing read. Each time we move onto the next letter in the dating-alphabet, we are faced with an array of new situations and dilemmas. Each chapter is full of energy. We quickly become attached to the unique theatre restaurant Ramona pours her heart into and sympathize with her quest to find the right flavour of love.

I do prefer romances that are more intense and focused on the tension between two protagonists. But if you enjoy a broad range of interesting characters and want a good laugh, this is what you are looking for!
