The Sunday Girl Reviews
I think Aussie author Pip Drysdale will have a long and successful career if her subsequent novels are as good as this debut.
Sunday Girl is an addictive psychological thriller in the vein of Girl on the Train. Written in the first person point of view of our female lead, Taylor, it starts off with the usual woman scorned seeking revenge plot. Taylor has just left her boyfriend, Angus, after learning he has gone on a skiing holiday with his ex-girlfriend. It’s soon revealed that Taylor knows not ...more
This debut psychological thriller puts Pip Drysdale firmly in the "one to look out for" category of debut authors.
Taylor and Angus were very much in love, she was his Sunday girl...a term of endearment he applied especially to her, it meant everything to her...it gave her the kind of fulfilling sense of trust and complete belonging which she yearned for.
So when she discovered he had done something so cruel and hurtful, in retaliation to an argument, it brought their relationship to an abrupt an ...more
Addictive, clever, brilliantly written. I read this in a weekend - could not put it down. Can’t wait to read what Pip writes next!
The Sunday Girl is the first contemporary, psychological thriller from Australian author Pip Drysdale. I admired the structure of the novel, its chapters being the days of the week and a quote from The Art of War, which has a large role in the story line. Drysdale is reminiscent of James Patterson with the short chapters and simple sentences that got to the heart of the matter.
Set in London, The Sunday told in the first person through the eyes of the protagonist, Taylor Bishop. Taylor is a youn ...more
‘Some love affairs change you forever.’
Taylor Bishop is hurt, and angry after her boyfriend Angus Hollingsworth kicks her out for another woman. But after he posts a pornographic video of her on the Internet, Taylor wants revenge. Armed with ‘The Art of War’, she makes a plan. If only she’d stopped there. If only. But, in a modern-day interpretation of ‘hell hath no fury’, Taylor takes the first step on a path which will quickly spiral out of control.
Reading this novel was like watching a disast ...more
I'm not sure what it says about me that I love books about righteous vengeance where a smart protagonist outfoxes the baddie, but this sounded right up my alley - a heroine using Sun Tzu's Art of War to ruin her cheating scumbag ex.
It didn't really go how I expected, though, and while I still really enjoyed it, I'm left feeling a little disappointed that it wasn't what I expected, hence 4 stars.
Taylor is a 20-something property researcher who has just discovered that the love of her life, handso ...more
I quite enjoyed reading this book - it is probably more 3.5 than 4 ... but definitely better than a 3*.
I read this story quickly and it was certainly a page turner. I really enjoyed the psychological twists throughout. I’d say target audience 16+ ... there’s a few confronting themes and sexy bits.
I won’t ruin the ending for you but I will tell you that I thought it let the rest of the book down.
I think this was a debut book for the author, so I look forward to book #2.
The Sunday Girl really took me by surprise. What begins as a payback for some revenge porn posted online quickly morphs into a situation that is so much more perilous than I could have envisaged. I was gripped by this novel, its open and easy to read narrative saw me devouring it within one, albeit late, night.
Told in the first person, in a sort of hindsight storytelling style, I really found The Sunday Girl incredibly absorbing. We know that something has happened to Taylor, but the what of it ...more
