Diary of a Dieter by Marie Coulson Blog Tour

Curvy girl, Charlene Winters, had it all: the great career, wonderful friends and a dreamy fiancĂ©. With her wedding day just three weeks away, Charlene is dealt a devastating blow. Suddenly finding her life, hopes and plans in tatters, the jilted bride sinks into despair and a tub of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough. With the heartache of her fiancĂ©’s infidelity still fresh, Charlene’s whisked away by her friends on a life-changing holiday. But how will this big fish cope now that she’s back in the dating pond and surrounded by slender trouts with Botox lips? Frustrated by best friend Adam thwarting her attempts at romance, and her girls Vanessa and Dana eager to set her up with a boy toy, Charlene decides the time for change is upon her. What she needs is a change of scenery, a change of dress size and maybe, a change of heart.

Born and bred in Essex, England, Marie Coulson discovered her love of writing in her early teens. Beginning with poetry and song lyrics, she tried her hand at creative writing while studying for her English GCSE. It was love at first line. Unfortunately, Marie's career as a childcare and education practitioner soon took up most of her time and writing became something she only dreamed about. In the summer of 2012 she quit her job and enrolled at university, ready to start a new career as a therapist. This left her with a lot of time on her hands and on August the 20th she sat down and wrote the first chapter of Bound Together. Bound Together was a story that had been waiting three years to be written and when fingers hit the keyboard...Layla, Jared and Ollie's story was born. Marie has since written and released two novels in the Bound Together series and a novella. Her romantic comedy novel Diary Of A Dieter has also received excellent reviews and is the debut novel in  the Confessions series.

I am not going to lie I was a bit scared to read this book. Not because I didn't think it would be phenomenal no no, its the fact that Marie's last book (and don't get me wrong I fucking loved the hell out of it, I mean Ollie... nuff said!!!) was like 600 pages. I mean I love the fact that she wrote all about my love (Ollie) but yeah thats like 2 books in one. Have no fear I do believe she is leaving those 600 page books for my man Ollie. How many times can I speak about Ollie. Idk but I should stop since this is not about Ollie.
I knew I was going to love this book as soon as I finished the first page. I was like OMG seriously? I was already in the mood to punch a douchnozzle! Who the fuck did this arse think he was. OMG I laughed my ass off when Charlie was telling him off. Oh you wanna know who the douchnozzle and Charlie are? I can give you this since it won't give away the book. Douche is Brad he is supposed to marry Charlene or rather Charlie. In the opening scene he is breaking off the wedding and we come to find out he is a cheater and basically tells her its her fault because she is fat!
I know right. And worst of all the dick does this over the phone! I was already yelling at him saying...
I won't continue because you need to read what else happens. But I love Charlie's friends, Ness and Dana. They are there for her and you all know I love it when the protagonist has BFF's she can lean on.
And then there is Adam! God Marie what have you done to me???? I had to keep repeating to myself....I love Ollie....I love Ollie....I love Adam errrr Ollie. I mean seriously I was all over that guy. He's is Charlie's BFF and gah he melted my heart. He was a great addition to the story. I think I need to continue my mantra of I love Ollie's becasue Marie has hit this one out of the park with Dr. Adam...yeah I said Dr. Damn you Marie!!
 I also loved Charlie's Grandma. I about died laughing when she spoke at dinner. I am pretty sure this will be me when I am that old. 
After her bad break up, Charlie decides to get into shape. I never laughed so hard. I love this book. I love the way Marie wrote this character. I could see myself in Charlie. This book is just

I could literally sit here all day and go on and on about this book. I wont because well for one I would probs fall deeper in love with Adam. Two... I would defo do spoilers and you all know I hate to spoil any book and three I would just continue to gush about Marie and the wonderful job she did with this book. Let me put it like this...Not since Tara Sivec's Chocolate series have I laughed like this.

I gave this book

5/5 tear filled but slap happy cupcake hearts!
Great job Marie seriously.
