Duvet Day – Emily Kerr


Young lawyer Alexa Humphries’s one true love is her precious duvet, yet she is torn from its comforting embrace every morning while the foxes are still scavenging the bins outside and doesn’t get back until long after most normal people are already asleep. Worn down by the endless demands of her suspicious boss and her competitive, high-flying housemate and fellow lawyer, Zara, Alexa barely recognises herself anymore. This wasn’t how life was supposed to be.

But today is different. Today, Alexa just cannot get out of bed to face the world. Everyone deserves a duvet day, don’t they?


This is an easy to read, lighthearted funny book with a hint of romance. It’s set across a single day and almost reads as smoothly as a film. All the situations (even though some completely bonkers) felt believable and real.

I loved Alex, Zara and Sam, their characters, friendships and interactions. There were many parallels in this book that I could totally relate to.

It had an undercurrent message about well-being, mental health and work life balance which really shone through for me.

I would recommend this book for an easy, quick read.
