Hey Nerdy Peeps! I am bringing a review of an amazing book that I loved more than I can explain! I can’t thank Rachel’s Random Resources enough for putting this book in my hands. It really opened my eyes on my weight loss journey.
Diary of an Adorable Fat Girl: The Complete, Full-length Novel
Mary Brown is funny, gorgeous and bonkers. She’s also about six stone overweight. When she realises she can’t cross her legs, has trouble bending over to tie her shoelaces without wheezing like an elderly chain-smoker, and discovers that even her hands and feet look fat, it’s time to take action. But what action? She’s tried every diet under the sun.
This is the hysterical story of what happens when Mary joins ‘Fat Club’ where she meets a cast of funny characters and one particular man who catches her eye.
The story is laugh-out-loud funny and will resonate with anyone who has dieted, tried to keep up with any sort of exercise programme or spent 10 minutes in a changing room trying to extricate herself from a way too-small garment that she ambitiously tried on and is now completely stuck in.
Bernice Bloom is the big, new name in comedy writing…this is the first full-length novel after her series of laugh-out-loud mini books.

Saying this book is relatable is an understatement. As a plus size girl who struggles with her weight every day this book was the perfect way of getting through it. This book was light-hearted and so funny that I couldn’t help but laugh out loud at a lot of parts. Mary is a perfect character and she was amazing. I couldn’t help falling in love with her.
It even makes me want to start my own Fat Club!
Bernice did a great job with all the characters. They all fit together in the best way, and it made the story that much more enjoyable. I also loved the love story that Bernice through it just made the book that much better. If you love easy, fun, adorable, short reads then this book is definitely for you.
Author Bio –
Hello, my name is Bernice Bloom and I am a writer (I write light-hearted rom-com style novels and also work as a magazine journalist and advertising copywriter) and jewelry designer. My recent series of novels is called ‘Adorable Fat Girl’ and it features a heavily overweight woman called Mary Brown. She is bright, funny, friendly and bonkers. She’s also fat. The books blend the comedy of her efforts to lose weight with a more serious backstory about what happened to her in the past that had led to the issues that make her prone to over-eating. I’m fascinated that there are so few overweight heroines in literature. Women can be manipulative, evil, even murderers in fiction, but not fat! Certainly not fat and beautiful with loads of friends! Then along came Mary and she’s developed quite a fan base of people who love the fact that the heroine is large. She gets lots of letters and I have ended up taking her on lots of adventures!
