HOW TO FAIL | ELIZABETH DAY
Inspired by her hugely popular podcast, How To Fail is Elizabeth Day’s brilliantly funny, painfully honest and insightful celebration of things going wrong. Part memoir, part manifesto, and including chapters on dating, work, sport, babies, families, anger and friendship, it is based on the simple premise that understanding why we fail ultimately makes us stronger.
THE GLOSSY YEARS | NICHOLAS COLERIDGE
Recommended to me by my flatmate, The Glossy Years covers Nicholas’ Over his thirty-year career at Condé Nast, Nicholas Coleridge has witnessed it all. From the anxieties of the Princess of Wales to the blazing fury of Mohamed Al-Fayed, his story is also the story of the people who populate the glamorous world of glossy magazines. With relish and astonishing candour, he offers the inside scoop on Tina Brown and Anna Wintour, David Bowie and Philip Green, Kate Moss and Beyonce; on Margaret Thatcher’s clothes legacy, and a surreal weekend away with Bob Geldof and William Hague. Cara Delevingne, media tycoons, Prime Ministers, Princes, Mayors and Maharajas – all cross his path.
MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY | LILY ALLEN
Much like my review of Busy Philipps’ memoir in part one, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Lily before reading this book however this witty, dark and brutally honest read is a seriously addictive insight in to the pop stars life.
EXPECTATION | ANNA HOPE
Hannah, Cate and Lissa are young, vibrant and inseparable. Living on the edge of a common in East London, their shared world is ablaze with art and activism, romance and revelry – and the promise of everything to come. They are electric. They are the best of friends. Ten years on, they are not where they hoped to be. Amidst flailing careers and faltering marriages, each hungers for what the others have.
WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LULULEMONS | LAUREN WEISBERGER
Don’t let the title put you off… When Life Gives You Lululemons is the third book in Lauren Weisberger’s The Devil Wears Prada Series. The book follows Emily Charlton (aka the best character) in the next stage of her life in the suburbs. Easy beach read, hard to put down and seriously entertaining.
LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE | CELESTE NG
Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood—and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster. (Plus, it’s been made in to a seriously good series too!)
Lastly, here’s my current book reading situation!
