Lucy in the Sky by Paige Toon

Have no fear, this is green tea. I'm not just a terrible tea maker, I promise

This is the second Paige Toon book I have read, I really enjoyed the first, so after stumbling across this one in a charity shop, I knew I had to give it a read. This particular story revolves around Lucy, a 25 year old who is off to Sydney for her two best friends wedding. Just as the flight is taking off, she receives a text from a woman claiming to have slept with her boyfriend, bringing everything about Lucy's relationship into question.  Having lived in Sydney in her younger years, Lucy's journey to the other side of the world teaches her more about herself, love and want she really wants than she thought possible.

I think it says a lot about my thoughts on this book, by the fact I devoured it in one day. I didn't mean to, but once I started I couldn't stop. As I experienced with the previous Paige Toon book, the first third of the book is by far the best, the build up, sexual tension and the introduction of characters really grabbed me and made me want to read more. The second part of the book features a little bit of lull, almost waiting for the excitement to start again, although when it does, it definitely worth the wait. My main advice for this book would be to persevere, it's a pretty easy read, so even the less exciting parts can be read through quite quickly.

Overall, I would rate this book a 3.5/5, While a loved the overall story and outcome, there were times when I felt like parts of the story were disjointed. Nonetheless, I would thoroughly recommend this as a relaxing read.

As part of a monthly series, I will be posting about my book of choice for the month. Have a particular book you would like me to read? Let me know in the comments!



  1. I haven't read a chick lit book in so long, they're great for a quick read! x

  2. I haven't given myself time to read in ages! This does sound like the type of book I would read though. It sounds similar to a Lyndsey Kelk book I read a while back. Nothing wrong with typical chick-lit though!


  3. I've never heard of this book before, nor the author! However, as a huge bookworm I will definitely look into the author! I would definitely read this book if I had it in my possession, I love reading new things, it does sound really interesting, and I like the aspect of travelling! xx
