# REVIEW# DATING-ISH ( Knitting in The City #6 ) = Penny Reid

Dating ish 01 (2)[54354].jpg BC


‘Dating-ish’ can be read as a standalone, is a full length 100k word novel, and is book #6 in the Knitting in the City Series.


There are three things you need to know about Marie Harris: 1) She’s fed up with online dating, 2) She’s so fed up, she’s willing to forego the annoyance and consider more creative alternatives, and 3) She knows how to knit.

After the most bizarre and irritating first date in the history of humankind, Marie is looking for an alternative to men. With the help of her friends, she quickly identifies a few possibilities:

Need a cuddle? Use a professional cuddler. Need affirmation? Get yourself a life coach. Need an orgasm? Try orgasm meditation! Why does she need the hassle of a romantic partner when she can meet all her needs with paid services?

But then her irritating date resurfaces. And he’s not at all the person she thought he was. And he suggests a different–and crazier–solution to her dilemma . . .

As everyone knows (or will soon come to realize), traditional relations between humans are a thing of the past. Robots are our future. And if robots are our future, then why do we need other people at all?

I must say I fell in love with the Mad AI scientist Matt, and Marie the journalist that had given on dating, especially after going on a date to meet a mature bearded man who is her perfect match, and meets someone else completely.

At first Marie finds Matt irritating, but gradually he starts to grow on her.


Marie (one of our knitting crew) and Matt (previously met and adored) come together in a story that is romantic and heartfelt and smart and funny.

Dating-ish is a book that will speak to and appeal to a large audience. Anyone who has ever felt the very real pressure and struggle of dating will commiserate with an exasperated Marie.


 The unrealistic expectations for both men and women

seeking companionship will feel a kinship with both Matt

and Marie. The adventures of dating and the alternatives

to them are explored in this book.

Marie is looking for her right person, and you will be cheering for nerdy, adorable Matt along the way.

Knitting in the City fans will get more glimpses into the group and what has been happening since the last book in the series.

Dating-ish really shows the depth and the progression of their friendships and how they have branched out to include their partners as well. Dating-ish is a real winner for me, and I can’t recommend enough.


At times I was laughing out loud, my husband was quite jealous. This is a witty and sexy book. A must read for fans of Penny Reid.


I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
