I have recently become a huge fan of the writer Lisa Jewell and I am now on a quest to read as many of her books as I can. It had a lot to live up to after One Hit Wonderbut Lisa Jewell has done it it again with this book and has written another fantastic book that I really loved reading. Thirty Nothing features two main characters — Dig short for Digby and Nadeen — who have been best friends ever since they were at school together and are now just entering their thirties — hence the title!

The trouble is that because they are such good friends, they both fail to see what is staring everyone else in the face, and that is the jeell that they thirtynothinv made for each other.

Instead, they both go out with a steady stream of short term and highly unsuitable boyfriends or girlfriends, whilst reserving their more quality moments thirtynotbing each other.

All of a sudden the former best friends quite agree on anything especially when Jewell decides to meet up with her former love, Phil, an extremely suitable character. Nadeen is obviously jealous and Dig is totally blinded by Delilah? So where will it all end up.


Can they get back their friendship or might they come to realise that they want even more thirtynothinf that? They are both so immensely likeable and because of this you feel that you want to be on their sides and see them thirtynothng it together. Like many of my favourite books, I started quite slowly until I really got into the story and then ended up reading the last two hundred pages or so within the space of a day.

It thortynothing generally a light hearted read although there are some more serious moments especially when Delilah reveals to Dig things that happened in her past that made her leave him. It is really quite sad and thought provoking at those times.


Overall though it is a very uplifting and enjoyable book to read and I loved it. I like Jewell because she writes intelligent chick lit — none of the usual mind numbing sameness from her!

Full list on the Index page. One Comment on “Thirty Nothing”. Written thirtynotying kingfisher My name is Jo and I have been married to Simon for nine years. We have two beautiful daughters — Rachel who is six and Natalie who is almost five and starting school in January.


I also have two step children aged twenty one and seventeen so family life is never dull.

I also manage to work three days for a local education authority where I support the teaching of literacy in primary schools. In my spare time I run, dance and occasionally tread the boards with my local amateur dramatics group.

My first love is reading though and you will never find me without a book on the go. My husband is also an avid reader and we are hoping to pass on our love of reading to our daughters. They certainly love their bedtime stories every night. Although I have and English degree and I am familiar with most of the classics, I generally read much lighter stuff these days.

I have so many favourite authors and this list tends to change regularly depending on what I am reading. Read more from kingfisher. We have published book reviews so far Full list on the Index page.
