3.6 ⭐

It's a definite comfort read for me, it's fun reading both sides of story. Tiffy is chaotic and cheerful, Leon is stiff, introvert yet caring.

My first read for August #bookspinbingo is my #doublespin book *yeay*

@TheAromaofBooks

I'm a sucker for love notes, not exactly "love" notes but these are really sweet. Can't help smiling while reading them, and the change of Leon's tone!! Really appreciated ???

So much better than the monologues in his early POVs

The amazing story of two specific individuals who share a bed, but have not met- Tiffy and Leon. This book tells the tale of a girl who works during the day in need of an affordable flat and a boy who is a night nurse in need of some extra money. However, due to a wrongly accused bother and an obsessive, emotionally abusive ex boyfriend, things seem far more complicated than expected.

Worth the hype, and the wait from the library! So good, sweet, thoughtful, unique. Takes the just one bed trope to a whole new level and then turns it upside down. CW for emotional abuse but it is handled deftly. Highly recommend!

AvidReader25 I thought this one handled the tricky topics beautifully! 2mo

Loved this - ideal for a holiday read!

One of those books where it‘s quite obvious how it‘s going to end, but still fun to go on the journey to get there.

Henry definitely doesn‘t have his own personal inflatable sofa for camping!

Not posted in a while so I know have a backlog of books to post about!

I really enjoyed The Flat Share, especially the flipped format between Tiffy and Leon‘s POV. I also think compared to other books I‘ve read recently this was a lot more emotional and hard hitting and although touching on really sensitive subjects including domestic abuse and PTSD it was done really well!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫This was a reread for my book club, so I decided to listen to the audiobook, and it was such a good time! I found myself just driving around so that I could listen more. O‘Leary is great at writing these crazy situations - like a bed share - but somehow making them seem normal & pulling in a lot of real life elements, like emotional abuse & incarcerated family members. But also laugh out loud funny & very sweet.

1. Yes—frequently! Life is short and my TBR list is long.
2. Anything as long as it clearly tells me I won‘t enjoy the book. If I don‘t like the writing style, that‘s probably the biggest thing because that‘s not going to change over the course of the book.
3. I would and I have—I originally DNFed Emma and now I‘m reading the whole thing! A number of years have passed in between, though, and I think that‘s important.

ozma.of.oz I sympathize completely with the TBR length! There was a website that could calculate how long it would take to read your TBR list, and mine was at like 21 years! 😂😂😂 1y

After being disappointed by Spoiler Alert, I was in the mood for another fluffy romance so I‘m giving this one a try. Not sure about it so far; I find the main characters kind of annoying. But I‘ll give it a few more chapters. Tiffy does kind of have a dream job!

TheAromaofBooks Good luck!! I overall enjoyed this one, although I did feel like the drama with Tiffy's ex got a little over-the-top. But I did love Leon!!! 1y

I adored these characters, their quirks made them memorable. Told from a dual POV it's easy to forget that they literally had never met until half way though the book. An added bonus of the easiness of seeking help for trauma goes a long way in normalizing mental health care.

After a bad breakup, Tiffy Moore needs a place to live. Fast. And cheap. But the apartments in her budget have her wondering if astonishingly colored mold on the ↩️

MaggieCarr walls counts as art.

Desperation makes her open minded, so she answers an ad for a flatshare. Leon, a night shift worker, will take the apartment during the day, and Tiffy can have it nights and weekends. He‘ll only ever be there when she‘s at the office. In fact, they‘ll never even have to meet.

Tiffy and Leon start writing each other notes – first about what day is garbage day, and politely establishing what leftovers are up for grabs, and ↩️

MaggieCarr the evergreen question of whether the toilet seat should stay up or down. Even though they are opposites, they soon become friends. And then maybe more.

I thought this book was pretty cute, a nice typical rom com kind of story. Tiffy needs to find a new place and the only thing in her budget is sharing a flat with a strange guy, but they‘re never meant to be in the flat at the same time. 4⭐️

A cute contemporary romance in which two Londoners share a flat and a bed because of their opposite schedules, and so have not met in person. But they do cook for each other and leave very cute notes!

Whilst chicklit is no longer my number 1 genre of choice to read I do still read it occasionally. From the outset I was very interested to see how Tiffy and Leon's unusual flat sharing arrangement would pan out given that their agreement was that they would never be in the flat at the same time as each other. A heartwarming read, the characters were well rounded with their own interesting backstories as well. A highly enjoyable book.

Kaylamburson I loved this one, too! 2y

I throughly enjoyed this book. It dealt with quite serious topics carefully and thoughtfully. The characters were well rounded and relatable and thought the plots threads were resolved nicely. I‘m not a huge fan of epilogues, I don‘t always find them necessary but I did shed a tear for a note shared in the final pages. Must read for chick lit fans.

Good. Interesting characters and concept. Some of the ideas in this book are darker than the cover suggests such as mental health issues which have developed from the abuse that is Gaslighting so it may trigger some readers.
