'An utter ray of sunshine' Red | 'Hilarious, heart warming' 5* reader review Ever been a small town girl trying to make a life in the big city? Meet twenty-something Aisling - that's pronounced Ashling - she can barely boil an egg let alone figure out what night bus to catch home. But she's got a job in the big city, a flat and a boyfriend. She has an umbrella for rainy days, an electric blanket for cold nights and keeps her kitten heels firmly on the ground. Until the day she accidentally ditches her only slightly useless boyfriend John. And finds herself in a spot of bother at work. Is it time to pack up and go back to the sticks? Or can Aisling fix the mess she's made? What's a Complete Aisling to do? 'Brilliant. You laugh, you cry, you miss home, and you can't put it down' The Independent 'Sweet, funny, moving . . . perfect' The Pool 'A great big thumping heart' Sunday Times 'You'll shed a tear as well as laugh your socks off' Fabulous 'A riot of a novel' 5* reader review

You loved Aisling online, now get ready to love the novel. Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen, the creators of the much-loved Aisling character and the popular Facebook page 'Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling', bring Aisling to life in their novel about the quintessential country girl in the big smoke. Aisling is twenty-eight and she's a complete ... Aisling. She lives at home in Ballygobbard (or Ballygobackwards, as some gas tickets call it) with her parents and commutes to her good job at PensionsPlus in Dublin. Aisling goes out every Saturday night with her best friend Majella, who is a bit of a hames (she's lost two phones already this year - Aisling has never lost a phone). They love hoofing into the Coors Light if they're 'Out', or the vodka and Diet Cokes if they're 'Out Out'. Ais spends two nights a week at her boyfriend John's. He's from down home and was kiss number seventeen at her twenty-first. But Aisling wants more. She wants the ring on her finger. She wants the hen with the willy straws. She wants out of her parents' house, although she'd miss Mammy turning on the electric blanket like clockwork and Daddy taking her car 'out for a spin' and bringing it back full of petrol. When a week in Tenerife with John doesn't end with the expected engagement, Aisling calls a halt to things and soon she has surprised herself and everyone else by agreeing to move into a three-bed in Portobello with stylish Sadhbh from HR and her friend, the mysterious Elaine. Newly single and relocated to the big city, life is about to change utterly for this wonderful, strong, surprising and funny girl, who just happens to be a complete Aisling.

If there's one word to describe Aisling, it's 'organised', and with this little book her creators Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen are providing Aislings everywhere with the perfect tool to stay on top of things. Each month kicks off with an Aisling-tastic inspirational quote, with each week clearly laid out so you can tell at a glance how many baby showers you have or when your car tax is due. There's also a space to out write the month's attainable goal. Do you want to take up Zumba? Or learn 'Maniac 2000' on the tin whistle? Get out your Good Pen and write it down. It's all about being intentional. And then once you achieve your goals you get to tick them off, which is really the only reason to make a list in the first place. Once you get into the habit of using it, you won't be able to imagine your life without it, sort of like how ludicrous the world would be without smartphones or Dolmio Stir In! It's the essential diary for every Aisling - plan your weeks, prioritise goals and never forget another birthday!

'Incredibly relatable and horribly funny' LUCY VINE 'Smart, bittersweet and extremely funny' DAISY BUCHANAN 'I wolfed it down in two days because I was totally hooked' HELLY ACTON *A No. 1 Bestseller in Dark Humorous Comedy on Kindle* _____________________ Adult life is hard. Send help. Ivy Edwards is thirty-one years old, funny, shameless, and a bit of a romantic. She's also currently trying not to cry in the office toilet. Partly because she's just run out of money for fags. A bit because her mum continues to annoy her. Definitely not because she's just been dumped by her fiancé. With her London life in shambles and her family miles away in the Welsh valleys, Ivy doesn't actually feel like she belongs anywhere. At least, she has her friends - and a bottle of vodka. Embarking on a journey of singlehood, Ivy is about to discover that sometimes, having your life fall apart can be surprisingly fun. _____________________ The Education of Ivy Edwards is perfect for fans of Dolly Alderton's Everything I Know About Love, Holly Bourne's How Do You Like Me Now?, Emer McLysaght's Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag.
