Publisher's Summary

Phoebe Henderson may be single but she sure doesn’t feel fabulous. It’s been a year since she found her boyfriend Alex in bed with another woman, and multiple cases of wine and extensive relationship analysis with best friend Lucy have done nothing to help. Faced with a new year but no new love, Phoebe concocts a different kind of resolution.

The List: 10 things she’s always wanted to do in bed but has never had the chance (or the courage!) to try. A bucket list for between the sheets. One year of pleasure, no strings attached. Simple, right? Factor in meddlesome colleagues, friends with benefits, getting frisky al fresco, and maybe, possibly, true love and Phoebe’s got her work cut out for her.

What the Critics Say

"Sexy, smart and scandalous, The List charts one woman's odyssey through her bedroom blind-spots - and what a ride it is! Funny and frisky, I'd recommend to anyone with a taste for adventure" (Victoria Fox, author of Temptation Island)

    "Girlie yes, but great humour & tips for Blokes"

    Damn what AN AWESOME READ!! It's not the kind that'll mesmerise you keep you reading till you drop cold - no, it was I book I chose to savour. I'd happily read it a few times over. This book got me giggling and even laughing out loud in public and everywhere!! I will not drop any spoilers, at all; simply know this: it's about a progressive young 30's woman writing an account of her new year's resolutions for the year ahead. We go through her life based on the hysterical details she writes in a journal such as those about sexual encounters, Stuart's bottom and other things, making it an extremely light , very soft porn. Hazardous pointers only relay to bad food cooked by one Lucy. It has the sexual tenacity of Sex and the City, but with the reality of an everyday single woman trying to get it right - the 'it' being very girls dream: a handsome bloke who's not only great in the sack, but a soulmate too! Set up mainly in the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow, and bringing in other parts of Scotland, this book is undoubtedly fresh as the Highlands air and is quirky, young, sexually appealing with every possibility that it could have actually been someone's real life journey. It appealed to me most because it reflects a common point in every woman's life when we seek to re-identify and reconnect to ourselves, when we seek to stop being the giver of sexual pleasure, but seek also to be the recipient, when we seek to actually stop faking it and, actually have orgasms. But it's also a book about the importance of having true friends and making some, albeit unexpectedly, along the way, and having a support network to help you get up when you've fallen.
    This is supposed to be Joanna Bolouri's debut I believe. I pity her only because she;s set the bar really high on this. but with kind of wit and excellent book-writing abilities, I think she will come at us with another prizewinner. And yes, THIS IS a FANTASTIC book to be made in our own movie, even series!!

    The narration I must add, was fabulous!

    "Funny and entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to The List the most enjoyable?

    The frankness of her explanations and the banter between characters


    What other book might you compare The List to, and why?

    None really, sorry!


    What about Caroline Guthrie’s performance did you like?

    She really gave the book humour which kept me listening to a bit of an overall predictable story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some moments really made me laugh


    Any additional comments?

    The story is overall predictable but I kept on listening because it was funny and entertaining. Really frank in some parts but banter between characters is great!

    "Hilarious and down to earth!"
    What did you like most about The List?

    I loved the sheer honesty of the characters - it was no-frills and down to earth which was a refreshing change. It is great that the secret thoughts that no one says out loud is mentioned and for the first time, this book actually made me laugh out loud.


    What other book might you compare The List to, and why?

    Not sure what to compare it to really because the basic feel of the plot is like a lot in its genre but the way it is written is quite uniquely honest.


    What about Caroline Guthrie’s performance did you like?

    She captured the character's really well and without hearing the names, I instantly knew who was speaking.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!

    "Hysterically funny- loved every minute!"
    Would you listen to The List again? Why?

    I did listen to it again - it's that funny! Needed a good laugh and this delivered one hundred percent!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The List?

    It was all memorable as the main character works her way through "the list" had to ration myself as didn't want it to finish. Was sad when it ended! Hope there's book 2


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Guthrie – was your favourite?

    The the characters were good they leapt off the page for me and the narrators comedy timing makes this book. I just loved it. Loved the main character wish she was my friend as so warm and funny!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending, it was predictable but a nice way to end the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is eye wateringly frank to the point of being a bit too much at points so it's not for everyone BUT young women in their 20s-30s will identify with it as it taps into themes of love and loss, gives hope to those going through a breakup as the main character decides to embrace her single status and enjoy it instead of moping! the narration of this book was excellent and is why I listened again because it had me in hysterics! Great book I just loved it!

    Absolutely loved this book- so many funny moments from a strong female lead character & the narration was executed perfectly.

    Have listened to Joanna's other book and every month I always look to see if there are any more from her. She's an incredibly witty author!
