#BookReview: The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart by Anna Bell

Reviewer: Samantha

I received a review copy


Abi’s barely left her bed since Joseph, the love of her life, dumped her, saying they were incompatible.

When Joseph leaves a box of her possessions on her doorstep, she finds a bucket list of ten things she never knew he wanted to do. What better way to win him back than by completing the list, and proving they’re a perfect match?

But there’s just one problem – or rather, ten. Abi’s not exactly the outdoorsy type, and she’s absolutely terrified of heights – not ideal for a list that includes climbing a mountain, cycling around the Isle of Wight and, last but not least, abseiling down the tallest building in town . . .

Completing the list is going to need all Abi’s courage – and a lot of help from her friends. But as she heals her broken heart one task at a time, the newly confident Abi might just have a surprise in store . .


This book is so good for chick lit readers. Classic heartbreak and a foolproof way to get the guy back… right? Abi’s journey to complete her ex’s bucket list was a hoot to read about. And it was a lot of fun to take each adventure with Abi, and those turned out to be some of my favorite sections to read. Of course the budding romance that she doesn’t want to believe in added a great touch, and with a happy ending to boot, I was very satisfied with this novel.
