Review: The Bucket List is the first book I read from Georgia Clark and it definitely won’t be my last. The story follows Lucy, 25 years old, who discovers that she is BRCA1 positive and decides to create a bucket list for her breasts. This novel was not only entertaining, but surprisingly deep and well thought out. The author did through research on breast cancer and I learned quite a lot. The author tackled serious issues about the emotions and anxieties of being BRCA1 positive. On a side note, this novel contains a lot of sex. The author brings up double standards, body positivity, and the realistic views of romance. I also liked the diverse set of characters in this novel, i.e. the main character’s affair with an Iranian fashion designer and her best friend is British Indian lesbian. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys contemporary novels that will give you a lasting impact. The book releases on Tuesday 8/7/18.
