Book review - The Art of letting go by anna bloom

Summary    When Lilah McCannon realises at the age of twenty-five that history is going to repeat itself and she is going to become her mother—bored, drunk and wearing a twinset—there is only one thing to do: take drastic action. 

Turning her back on her old life, Lilah’s plan is to enrol at university, get a degree and prove she is a grown-up.

As plans go, it is a good one. There are rules to follow: no alcohol, no cigarettes, no boys and no going home. But when Lilah meets the lead singer of a local band and finds herself unexpectedly falling in love, she realises her rules are not going to be the only things hard to keep.

With the academic year slipping by too quickly, Lilah faces a barrage of new challenges: will she ever make it up the Library stairs without having a heart attack? Can she handle a day on campus without drinking vodka? Will she ever manage to read a history book without falling asleep? And most importantly, can she become the grown-up that she desperately wants to be.
With her head and her heart pulling her in different directions can Lilah learn the hardest lesson that her first year of university has to teach her: The Art of Letting Go

Favorite quotes 

He  looks like an  artistic  type  .   She  sighs into her  teacup.  Good  grief,  is  this  eighty-odd-year-old woman  lusting  after  my  boyfriend ?  

I  bet  he is  good at  Sex  she  says  completely  straight  faced  .  I spurt my  mouthful  of  tea all  over the place  .

“I love you, Ben Chambers.”
“I love you, Lilah McCannon.”

Can  you learn the  art of letting go  ?
