Calling All Listaholics

Contemporary Romance/Chick Lit author, Lindsey Paley, has recently released The Wish List Addiction. This book will strike a chord with nearly everyone – who doesn’t make grocery lists, to-do lists, bucket lists, and the ever-popular wish list? To find out more about Rebecca Mathews’ list addiction, please keep reading.

Rebecca Mathews is a Listoholic—you name it, she has a 'To Do' list for it. Coupled with her daily 'Must Achieve' List, she possesses a mid-term, creatively drawn 'Wish List' and an exhaustively-researched 'Bucket List'. But so far, they have delivered nothing but spectacular failure. With her much-loved career exploded in her face, her marriage terminated in an acrimonious divorce and her frail father's pleas to return to her native Northumberland ignored, Rebecca concludes that if it wasn't for her beloved four-year-old son, Max, she would be adding a trip to a Swiss clinic to her list. A sparkle of light appears in Rebecca's life wrapped in the guise of 'The Little Green Book of Wishes', which challenges the reader to 'ditch the list' and instead to use its gems of wisdom as a 'dip in/dip out' lucky bag of challenges from all areas of life. Persuaded by her colleagues to relinquish her obsessive reliance on her multiple lists, cast adrift from their reassuring structure, she agrees to complete random tasks selected for her from the 'little emerald book of miracles'. Will it deliver the desired result and cure Rebecca of her Wish List Addiction?

Lindsey Paley is a Yorkshire girl who now lives in North East England with her husband and young son. When not writing in her peppermint and cream summerhouse (shed), she can be found either up to her elbows in flour baking cakes and biscuits or practicing her swing on the golf course.
If you were inspired by Rebecca’s lists, Lindsey would love to hear what’s on your ‘Wish List’ or ‘Bucket List’. Please contact her on her Author Facebook page

  1. I'm reading The Wish List Addiction now, love it!

  2. I agree! I just recently finished reading it. "Stiletto Heels or Bicycle Wheels" is a fun read also.

  3. And I thought I was the only one who made lists like this. Helps me create order out of chaos in life.
