    The Singalong Society for Singletons is a terrific idea for a novel, and beautifully executed by Katey Lovell, author of The Boy in The series of short stories I was really impressed by how assured the writing for this, her first novel, is She effortlessly glides through multiple plot lines, complex character development and remembering a great many lines from musicals I was particularly delighted that she does not shy away from darker moments as this novel progresses There is real depth and hea [...]


    A nice, undemanding read which draws you in Good to see a lgbtq character Shame my favourite musical wasn t in there but they can t all be

    The Singalong Society for Singletons is the feel good book of the year I couldn t stop smiling from cover to cover, especially after seeing the list of musicals right at the start that were going to be featured So many favourites of mine If you are a fan of musicals, then you will without a doubt adore this book, if you aren t then don t worry as you aren t expected to know the shows inside out, and there is a fantastic story of friendship and romances within the singalong society The only sligh [...]

    Oh I have so much love for this book I adore the premise for this book and simply need to start a singalong society of my own Let me tell you a little secret I love musicals Oh wait it s not a secret at all everyone knows it My lovely and wonderful mum got me into musicals from a really early age I m talking probably before I was born But I do remember proper musicals always being on the tv when I was growing up This had led to me loving nothing than going to the theatre to watch my favourite m [...]


    I LOVE musicals I LOVE Katey Lovell s Meet Cute series And I LOVE THIS BOOK Can you fall in love whilst you re singing your heart out Katey Lovell s homage to the old school charm of musicals is a wonderfully fresh, quirky and romantic read Not that it s all jazz hands and romance Katey isn t afraid to show the good and the bad, and presents a cast of very real characters, who have felt like old friends every time I dipped back in to read THE SINGALONG SOCIETY FOR SINGLETONS is this year s most [...]

    Fabulous Book Fiend

    Review I loved this novel so much It was seriously so much fun The fact that this book features a couple of teachers including a year 6 teacher and a teaching assistant, as well as a long distance relationship and a ton of fabulous musicals means that it is right up my street But if you re not into any of those things, or can t relate to any of those things, don t worry, this novel is about so much too There is moments of identiy crisis, moments that deal with unrequited love, moments where fir [...]

    The Singalong Society for Singletons is the d but full length novel from Katey Lovell Previously she had written a series of short stories called The Meet Cute which I hadn t read so this new book was a chance to discover the writing of Katey Months ago when I saw this cover pop up on Twitter I knew I had to read this book as I thought the colours and pictures were just magnificent and really you couldn t find a better, snappy title The title is so apt for the actual plot of the book and those w [...]

    The Singalong Society for Singletons should come with the following warning Seriously addictive read likely to induce uncontrolled tune humming, toe tapping and an irrational need for pizza at 10am Bravo Katey Lovell on this darling debut that really does deliver everything you d ever want from a musical but in book form heartbreak, longing, camaraderie, tragedy, energy, bravery and hope delivered in weekly chapter updates from Mon, our heroine of the tale.Mon joined by her sister Hope, along wi [...]


    Each chapter in the novel, includes under the chapter heading, the musical that is chosen by the different characters I actually loved this as being a big fan of musicals, I found myself humming away to my favourite songs from the shows So every get together brings a different musical to life, loved it The story line for me is very much about friendships and bonds that have formed between the characters They all have something different going on in their lives and with each chapter it was like c [...]

    I received a copy of this via NetGalley and the publishers in return for a fair and honest review.Who doesn t love a musical And this book lets you indulge in your passion for singing along to all your favourites as it tells the story of a group of singletons as they set up their own little singalong movie night club Monique and Issy are the founding members as their Friday nights have routinely consisted of them settling down in their PJ s while watching, and singing to, Frozen on DVD No matter [...]


    A small group of single friends begin a Friday night ritual of snacks and singing along with musicals on DVD Variously the group consists of Connie, who spends her time looking after her father Issy, whose teenage sister has announced she is pregnant Monica, whose long term boyfriend has moved to America for a year to work Monica s sister Hope, who has just broken up with her live in girlfriend and has temporarily moved in with Monica and Issy Liam and Ray, two actors that Issy taught in a class [...]


    My thoughts First of all if you love musicals then this book is definitely for you There were a few mentioned that I haven t seen yet So it was interesting to learn about them from the characters point of view.The characters were all well written and I got attached to each and every one of them I loved the friendships that they all shared Liam has to be my favourite, as the story progresses we get to know his character really well First impressions aren t always true.Before I knew it I was halfw [...]

    A delicious, heart warming, musical love fest of a book If you love musicals, then you ll love this Monique has been with her boyfriend Justin since school when he suddenly decides to up and leave for New York and she decides to stay As Mon and her girlfriends gather on a Friday night for wine, a DVD and a sing a long, Issy her bestie decides to extend the invitation to a few others and then The Singalong Society for Singletons is born It was a great premise for a story and very well executed Be [...]


    As soon as I read what this book was about I just knew I had to start reading it straight away I started reading it in bed and smiled all the way through This really is a feel good book and I found myself humming an array of musical songs today since finishing the book It really has got inside my head and do you know something, I think I like it


    Liked the concept, but I am so far removed from the main characters in their 20s, that I just couldn t make a personal connection I am even a teacher like Mon and Issy I love the weekly musicals chosen, but the story didn t always relate to the theme of the musicals It did remind me of when a group of my girl buds would have a weekly 90210 Melrose Place dinner night MANY years ago.


    book It really has got inside my head and do you know something, I think I like it


    I have loved all the MeetCute books I have read by Katey so I was curious to see how this full length novel would compare.It s got a bright inviting cover, the potential of some fabulous music and a light hearted chick lit vibe.When a group of girls get together on a Friday night it can only mean one thing surely wine, pizza and discussing the boyfriends Well maybe times have changed since I was single but now apparently they also have a sing along This is quite a novel idea it plays out well in [...]

    Not just for singletonsWell this had me captured from start to finish The words flowed easily to read and I loved the little family they made of them all together on their Friday night s for musicals, food and a darn good signalling Would love there to be a part2


    A light and fun book about a group of friends who meet once a week to share their love of musicals The characters are warm and engaging and I really enjoyed the musical element, perfect easy reading

    When Justin heads off to America to work, girlfriend Monique Mon is left to start a mini club where single friends can sing out their woes to a Friday night musical DVD.I have to confess that I had wondered if The Singalong Society for Singletons would be rather saccharine, but not a bit of it, as it s a charming story of hopes, fears, friendship and making the most opportunities.Aside from a well plotted narrative that revolves around the films that are watched, there are some intense themes ex [...]


    Mon s childhood sweetheart boyfriend Justin drops a bombshell that he s leaving to work in America for a year Soon after they go on a break To relieve her heartache she starts up the Singalong Society for Singletons with her sister and friends Because they all love musicals, and what better way to end a week than with a sing song Then when 2 men enter the mix, the dynamic of the group changesThis book is a lovely fluffy little read, that passes the time nicely A little predictable, but lovely.Al [...]
