Lauren Graham – Talking As Fast As I Can

I was a late-comer to the world of Gilmore Girls, I’d heard of it of course, but only started to watch it when it came to Netflix last year. And what’s not to like, a program about an independent woman and her equally independent daughter, who just so happens to love books… I binge watched the whole thing on Netflix in a matter of weeks, so when I read that Lauren Graham had written an autobiography that obviously covered her...

Sue Perkins – Spectacles

I didn’t really know much about Sue Perkins apart from the things I’ve seen her in on TV, but this book was being advertised on Kindle at 99p, and as I had really enjoyed the things I’d seen her in, I thought it would be an interesting read. And I wasn’t disappointed. My reading of this book was a bit disjointed, reading it on the bus when it was busy and I couldn’t get my book out, or in the time waiting for the...

Anna Kendrick – Scrappy Little Nobody

This book encompasses two things that I love. Autobiographies and Anna Kendrick. Since I first saw her in Twilight (don’t judge), I’ve loved her as an actress, and I’ve always thought she’s a very relateable person and very funny (especially on Twitter). Thankfully, her book didn’t spoil the picture of her that I’d created in my mind, I laughed out loud constantly and hard. She’s brutally honest the...

Review: Mary Berry – Recipe for Life

Mary Berry. What can you say? When you see her on TV, she’s exactly like your grandma. And her autobiography was less like a book and more like sitting in your granny’s kitchen with a cup of tea and a cream scone and listening to her reminiscing about the old times. I have to be honest, I’d never heard of Mary Berry until the Great British Bake Off started, but I can see now that she’d actually done a lot before then...

Review: Miranda Hart – Is It Just Me?

Anyone who knows me will know that Miranda is my favourite comedian. I can’t watch her show without laughing hysterically, and it doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen it, it’s still the same. So it was kind of surprising that I waited so long after this book came out to actually read it. I had it on my Christmas list last year, but when no-one bought me it, I didn’t fancy paying hardback prices and so I waited...

Review: Brad Paisley – Diary of a Player

I’ve been wanting to read this book since it first came out a couple of years ago, but I’d never been able to justify the price (with it being an American book and not widely available in the UK). But my brother bought me it for Christmas this year and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. Brad Paisley is one of my favourite artists, and definitely one of my favourite country artists. His music is beautiful and inspiring, but also...

Review: James Corden – May I Have Your Attention, Please?

I do love reading a good autobiography, getting a glimpse into someone’s life is always pretty cool, and for someone as funny as James Corden, I knew I was in for a treat. I was expecting to be laughing the entire way through the book, but James was refreshingly honest about the harder times in his life too. Often when you think of celebrities, you don’t think about how hard it was before they finally made it to the ‘big...
