    Ladies and gentlemen, I have met my new personal hero I started reading this book and immediately felt like I was cushioned perfectly in cotton wool and marshmallows, covered in fluffy blankets with cherubs singing to me and playing with my hair.In other words this is genuinely one of the most lovely and funny and heartwarming memoirs I ve read in my rather short life so far I LOVE itthan I could possibly say I laughed out loud even on the tube which I find da...

    WELL I was expecting to like this and thought it would the perfect light summer read What I actually got was the diary of a someone who came across as the epitome of privilege and entitlement I don t want to be too mean spirited, but the majority of the book was the author simply regaling us with her totes hilarious exploits, which were not amusing or original and therein lay the problem Having a Rod Stewart themed party Uh, great Throughout the book, all I kept thinking was YOU RE WELL I was expecting to like this and thought it would the perfect light summer read What I actually got was the diary of a someone who came across as the epitome of privilege and entitlement I don t want to be too mean spirited, but the majority of the book was the author simply regaling us with her totes hilarious exploits, which were not amusing or original and therein lay the problem Having a Rod Stewart themed party Uh, great Throughout the book, all I kept thinking was YOU RE UNIQUE JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE I got a strong sense of that youthful idea that assumes everything you re doing is radical and groundbreaking and that no one has ever done it before Newsflash people have been doing it all for years And, reading about someone doing the can can in a pub and kicking over a tray of glasses just makes me think what a fucking nightmare it must be to be around this person pity the staff who had to literally pick up the pieces here I also really felt for her friend, Farly, who jus...

    I listened to Everything I Know About Love on audiobook, mostly during my commute This was good and bad good because I hate to not finish books and there s no way I would ve finished this if I had to dedicate 100% of my attention to it, as opposed to listening whilst travelling, cleaning etc However, the bad was that I perhaps would ve interpreted it differently in book form In audio form, I found Dolly frustrating, whiney and self indulgent where I might have taken the written formatI listened to Everything I Know About Love on audiobook, mostly during my commute This was good and bad good because I hate to not finish books and there s no way I would ve finished this if I had to dedicate 100% of my attention to it, as opposed to listening whilst travelling, cleaning etc However, the bad was that I perhaps would ve interpreted it differently in book form In audio form, I found Dolly frustrating, whiney...
