Miranda’s back, but she’s not sticking around for long. In an attempt to regain her mojo, she’s packing up her whips, chains and thigh-high boots to leave London, and set out on a road trip unlike any other. With her best frenemy, and fellow dominatrix, Mistress Laveen in tow, she heads out to see what delights – and displeasures – they can dish out from the “comfort” of budget hotel rooms across the UK.

I tried the first series and before I was finished got the second one. Sincerely hope there is a third. A breath of fresh air between serious books and realistic of some of the things that go through every girl's mind.

Michael McIntyre has become Britain’s biggest comedy star. His debut stand-up DVD, Live & Laughing, was the fastest selling of all time, only to be eclipsed by his second, Hello Wembley, which sold over 1.4 million copies and was the 2009 Christmas number one. He hosts his own BAFTA nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-up in 2009 following his record breaking 54-date Arena tour.

Part memoir, part comedy routine, part advice manual, Challenge Accepted! is Celeste at her best, revealing her secrets to love, friendship, family and marriage (oh hai, #hothusband) and how to deal with life's many challenges: why she checks the bath for sharks, how Nutella quite literally shaped who she is as a woman and why being famous on Instagram is like being rich in Monopoly. Its real, like totally, really real.

I pick a lot of books based on who narrated it. I love good animated she is in telling her story. could have done with less swearing but it is the territory. Worth a listen.

The compelling, inspiring (often comic) coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. One of the comedy world's brightest new voices, Trevor Noah is a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of the absurdities of politics, race and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life.

Trevor is an excellent story teller. hearing his story and his beginnings, it is difficult to stop listening because of the way he builds up or drops little cliff hangers here and there. I struggled however with keeping up a little bit because it is not chronological. he talks about when he was four, then 11, then back to 9, then to 21 and so on and so forth. it is still all his story but I found it a pinch confusing.
