Of the many books birthed in the pandemic, Lily Lindon’s Double Booked is perhaps one of the funniest. Dubbed a queer romcom, the book is also a coming-of-age story for those who’ve outgrown their teens and are well on the way to adulthood. It makes Double Booked a refreshing take on self-discovery, a subject normally the preserve of the very young. We follow Gina as she takes on another self, George, in an attempt to live two different lives. Alongside the funnies is plenty of fizz. There’s an infectious energy to Lindon’s writing and every pages brims with real-life chat/goss/angst/love. As an editor working in publishing and someone who honed her comedic chops at Cambridge’s famous Footlights, the author is somewhat ‘double booking’ herself – and it’s paid off wonderfully.

The LoveReading LitFest invited Lily Lindon to the festival to talk about Double Booked.

The digitally native, all year round, online literature and books festival, with new content released every week is a free-for-all-users festival.

Funny, emotional and enjoyable.

Double Booked follows Gina as she navigates what it means to be bisexual while being in a long term relationship. I loved Doug, he was sweet and considerate and the matching calendars really made me chuckle, as my husband puts everything on his!

Gina becomes George when she joins a lesbian group and then struggles with her double life, there is a lot of indecisiveness and hiding parts of herself from others. This was a little frustrating at times as you just want her to be herself.... Read Full Review

Amazingly funny even when dealing with difficult decisions. A very unusual take on how to deal with modern life

What an amazing and funny book! The title refers to the different lives Gina/George has. Gina is engaged to Doug and due to marry whilst George is preparing to become part of a lesbian pop group. They are the same person. If that sounds a bit complicated, the writing style is smooth and deals with serious issues and happenings easily and with humour. The novel flows seamlessly through the different events that help Gina/George decide what she really wants to do with her life - and it is very funny even whilst dealing with the problems she experiences. It reads partly as a diary so the reader always understands exactly what Gina/George is feeling and thinking. Her sometimes chaotic planning only adds to the story.... Read Full Review

I adored this book!

I adored this book! Right from the opening sentence the author had me hooked, and I found myself speeding through it in just a few days. The writing style was light and breezy, and really honest, and I found myself staying up late to ‘just read the next chapter’!

Lily has a talent for writing in a way that makes you feel like you can empathise with each character and understand their different struggles. The story line was fresh and different to anything I’ve read recently, and I genuinely couldn’t guess how certain storylines were going to go.... Read Full Review
