Diary of an Adorable Fat Girl: The Complete, Full-length Novel
Mary Brown is funny, gorgeous and bonkers. She's also about six stone overweight. When she realises she can't cross her legs, has trouble bending over to tie her shoelaces without wheezing like an elderly chain-smoker, and discovers that even her hands and feet look fat, it's time to take action. But what action? She's tried every diet under the sun. This is the hysterical story of what happens when Mary joins 'Fat Club' where she meets a cast of funny characters and one particular man who catches her eye. The story is laugh-out-loud funny and will resonate with anyone who has dieted, tried to keep up with any sort of exercise programme or spent 10 minutes in a changing room trying to extricate herself from a way too-small garment that she ambitiously tried on and is now completely stuck in. Bernice Bloom is the big, new name in comedy writing...this is the first full-length novel after her series of laugh-out-loud mini books
Author Bio –
Hello, my name is Bernice Bloom and I am a writer (I write light-hearted rom-com style novels and also work as a magazine journalist and advertising copywriter) and jewellery designer. My recent series of novels is called ‘Adorable Fat Girl’ and it features a heavily overweight woman called Mary Brown. She is bright, funny, friendly and bonkers. She’s also fat. The books blend the comedy of her efforts to lose weight with a more serious backstory about what happened to her in the past that had led to the issues that make her prone to over-eating. I’m fascinated that there are so few overweight heroines in literature. Women can be manipulative, evil, even murderers in fiction, but not fat! Certainly not fat and beautiful with loads of friends! Then along came Mary and she’s developed quite a fan base of people who love the fact that the heroine is large. She gets lots of letters and I have ended up taking her on lots of adventures!

Now what did I think about the book.
I loved it, it was a lighthearted and a fun read. A great escape from real life. This book would be great as a film.
There are so many women out there that really will relate to this book, anyone who has ever dieted or been to a slimming club. Then you will probably relate to a lot of what is happening in this book.
Slimming club for Mary Brown isn't all just about weight loss, it's where she makes friends. Although to start with she does what everyone, everywhere in any situation does, she judges people. Why do we all do that, only to find out that real people are in there.
This journey Mary goes on through this book is about growing her confidence, accepting herself as well as the weight loss. it's about facing her issues, and the reasons she has those issues. It's been a great journey to go on with Mary.
Alongside the fun and the laughs in this book, there are some serious issues.
This book is the first 3 short stories of the series all in one. I loved it, it was a great read, and anyone who enjoys a good chic lit, will really enjoy this. i gave this book 5/5 because of the enjoyment I got from the book, the fact that I wanted and needed to keep reading.
