Summary

You know when you find yourself approaching 30 and your dreams are broken? You've got a temping career going nowhere and a student debt that's mounting, and you've just had to move back into your mum's house.

Then, to top it all off, you get absolutely annihilated with heartbreak because of an ex who is just 'not ready' but then manages to be ready, a week later, with someone else. And it is here, at your lowest point, that one of your best friends decides to remind you that you are the same age as Beyoncé. FML.

Luisa Omielan is a stand-up comedian who turned her life around after she answered the mantra every person needs in their life: What Would Beyoncé Do?!

Hilariously funny, wonderfully uplifting and brutally honest, Luisa's memoir shows us all that there is no situation in which Bey can't save the day.

So great. Can't recommend enough

She is so so great. This isn't just for women, or anyone that like biographies. This is a book for anyone that appreciates comedy that is true, the kind that makes you cringe, laugh and nod your head way too enthusiastically on the commute. Brilliant. Thank you Luisa.

Brilliant emotional rollercoaster!

I seriously enjoyed every second of this book and did not want it to end. I am a new fan who watched Luisa's BBC show and tell in love and wanted to see if the book would do the set justice. it 100% did! "Am I right ladies?"

Miss it already!

It’s the first time I’d heard of Luisa and bought the book on a whim. I loved every moment of this funny, inspiring and worryingly relatable book. Luisa has such wonderful expression in her voice and I enjoyed that she was reading it, she had me chuckling all the way on my daily commute. So glad you were harassed into writing the book Luisa, hope someone bullies you into another.

"What do we want?"

Deep and meaningful..... And well this book delivers. Thank you Luisa for taking me on such an emotional roller coaster. I'm so glad that I picked up this audio version because I loved that it felt you were reading right to me! I loved the character accents and I secretly (well not so secret now) hope that they actually talk like that! This book made me laugh and smile like an idiot driving so thanks for that too.

yawn

not much to say, like the author... her life story was kinda boring and uneventful. if anything, it made me realize anyone can write a book...sorry for the bad review, just wasn't funny or smart or engaging...Beyonce would not approve

Really just bad.

Poorly written, not funny for a comedienne. Half assed attempt at her own biography. Nothing to do with Beyonce or what Beyonce would do. Just a surfacey events catalog of her failed attempts at stardom. A part by part of every excruciating detail of a Mediocre person's mediocre attempts at landing a non mediocre job. I listened hard to try to gain some insight. Anything....Nothing. So dry. It was just all" first I went here and did that. Then this happened, I did this and that, next t his, after that. Then that happened. Then this then that."I wrote more interesting book reports in 2nd grade Yawn.
