And they all lived happily every after... | #2014bloggerchallenge

The #2014bloggerchallenge is in full swing and this week it's all about books. If you know me you know i'm not a big reader, not for any particular reason but I never seem to find the time. However, almost every time I manage to pick up a book, I get sucked in and can't stop. Therefore I should probably read a lot more often, another one of my resolutions...

I loved The Hunger Games Trilogy and read all 3 but if I'm completely honest with you half the time I had to re-read chapters as I had no idea what was going on. Partially due to my ability to procrastinate whilst procrastinating. Nonetheless they were amazing and I 100% recommend them to anyone!


So instead, the book I'm going to talk about is perhaps the only book i've ever read and understood, fully, if you know what I mean. 'Starter For Ten' written by David Nichollas is a fantastic, witty and romantic novel about a student named Brian and his crush Alice. The story revolves around 'University Challenge' which I'm sure you've all heard of but for those who haven't, it's a television quiz show where contestants compete to answer questions. Brian gets the chance to compete with his fellow university pals and just so happens to have to opportunity to meet the stunning Alice Harbinson. 

The main reason I loved the book is because it was just hilarious, I mean it had me laughing! It was just the perfect balance between comedy and romance with a little knowledge on the side. 

The novel has also been remodelled into a film, however If you haven't read/seen either I recommend reading the book first. As always, the movie just wasn't the same.

Have you read this book? What's your favourite book you've ever read?

Have a great day!

  1. I agree that the film wasn't the same, the book was much much better. Have you read One Day or seen the film of that? I've read the book but haven't seen the film.

    1. I mean it wasn't the worst adaptation of a book I've seen but definitely wasn't the best. I haven't read it but loved the film, my mum has and absolutely loved it though!
