What’s It About?

The Curvy Girls Club, by Michele Gorman, is a novel about four woman who meet every week at their weight loss club, The Slimming Zone. One day, they make a group decision to skip out on The Slimming Zone, and instead go do something fun. Eventually, it catches on and becomes a business, and the girls are organizing events for 50+ people! The club becomes an escape, not only from dieting, but from their tumultuous personal lives.

My Thoughts:

A happy book reviewer, (me), holding the UK version of The Curvy Girls Club! Thank you, Avon UK!

I was delightfully charmed by Katie, Ellie, Pixie, and Jane and wished they were MY friends! I cannot say enough good things about this splendid story, and the characters within it.

I enjoyed this book because it touched on real issues that women face, and dealt with those issues with humor. Katie, the main character, is hilarious! I enjoyed her point of view.

I love the idea of a “Curvy Girls Club”; a club where women who are plus- sized can feel that they are among friends, and do fun things. I think that Author Michele Gorman had a neat idea to base her women’s fiction on this.

I believe that women of all shapes and sizes can take away something positive from this book. The underlying message of The Curvy Girls Club is to love your body and yourself!


I would recommend this novel to women who enjoy stories about friendship. loaded with lots of humor.


***In the interest of full disclosure, I received a paperback copy of The Curvy Girls Club, from Avon UK. in exchange for a thoughtful, fair, and honest book review.

Author Michele Gorman, have your cupcake!!! 😉
