So, this is me. Lily Allen. I am a woman. I am a mother. I was a wife. I drink. I have taken drugs. I have loved and been let down. I am a success and a failure. I am a songwriter. I am a singer. I am all these things and more. When women share their stories, loudly and clearly and honestly, things begin to change - for the better. This is my story.

I wasn’t a fan of this book. Lily sighs all the way through and couldn’t sound less interested.

Lou Clark knows a lot of things. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop, and she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live, and now everything feels small and joyless. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

I did enjoy this book mostly but felt there was a lot of over explaining in it. Sometimes it felt like it was explaining the same thing 3 times.
The main character is also quite frustrating in my opinion. The ending was a bit predictable and ‘they all lived happily ever after’ theme.
Will Wheaton wasn’t terrible but doesn’t have a wide range.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Spectacles, the hilarious, creative and incredibly moving memoir from much loved comedian, writer and presenter Sue Perkins. When I began writing this book, I went home to see if my mum had kept some of my stuff. What I found was that she hadn't kept some of it. She had kept all of it - every bus ticket, postcard, school report....

None of us ever agreed on the exact beginning. Was it when we started drawing the chalk figures, or when they started to appear on their own? Was it the terrible accident? Or when they found the first body?

I thought some of the story was a little over the top and unrealistic in parts, but hey that’s the fun of stories. The narration was spot on and really brought it to life.

Take a funny and illuminating tour of the female body with award-winning comedian Sara Pascoe. Women have so much going on, what with boobs and jealousy and menstruating and broodiness and sex and infidelity and pubes and wombs and jobs and memories and emotions and the past and the future and themselves and each other. Here's a book that deals with all of it. Sara Pascoe has joked about femininity and sexuality on stage and screen, but now she has a book to talk about it all for a bit longer.

What an amazing book. It's so good to hear such honesty about the female body. Sara has put a lot of information in to this book but made it easily accessible to dumbos like me. It's honest and refreshing, you'll also learn and laugh an awful lot!

Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward.
