There are six months left of Emma Reiss's twenties. . . and she has some unfinished business.

Emma and her friends are about to turn thirty, and for Emma it's a defining moment. Defined, that is, by her having achieved none of the things she'd imagined she would.

Her career is all wrong, her love life is a desert and that penthouse apartment she pictured herself in simply never materialised. Moreover, she's never jumped out of a plane, hasn't met the man she's going to marry, has never slept under the stars, or snogged anyone famous - just some of the aspirations on a list she and her friends compiled fifteen years ago.

As an endless round of birthday parties sees Emma hurtle towards her own thirtieth, she sets about addressing these issues. But, as she discovers with hilarious consequences, some of them are trickier to tick off than she'd thought…

Emma found a list  of things she wanted to do before she turned 30 and decided to achieve things on her list within six months before her big birthday.

I always love Jane Costello’s books. Her writing was very easy to get into and her characters are very likeable. Emma was no different. I love her right from the start and enjoyed her adventure to achieve things on her list. I love Emma and Matt’s chemistry. Their relationship at the beginning was absolutely funny! I thought that this book would be focusing more on Emma completing her wish list, but I guess it was more than that. While Emma did tick off  the things on her list (not all of them),it was great to see how Emma grew up just a little bit at the end of the story. 

The Wish List was a good chick lit read with fun plot and laugh out loud humor. Totally recommended for chick lit fans.
