How To Be A Grown Up by Daisy Buchanan

Here is my #BookReview of #HowToBeAGrown-up

Oh @NotRollergirl ( Daisy). Where on earth were you when I was growing up! This book is an absolute treat which I could associate with quite a bit now I’m old and grey. @headlinepg this is one special writer you have here.

There is some great advice in each chapter, yet it’s a warm and fun read too. If you’re feeling down, I recommend grabbing yourselves How To Be A Grown Up from your nearest Bookstore.

This book is staying close by, I know I can pick it up when I’m feeling a little low and be uplifted straight away by flicking through the book and finding a snippet of hilarity!! I’ve just flicked, page 165 opened and I’m not spoiling the title but I’m now having trouble seeing my keypad for the tears running down my cheeks. Thanks Daisy xxx


For fans of Bryony Gordon and Caitlin Moran, a comforting, witty, supportive book for real twenty-something women who want to discover how they can reach the end of the ‘fun’ decade knowing exactly who they are.

Have you ever felt lost, anxious, panicky about adulthood?

Have you ever spent a hungover Sunday crying into a bowl of cereal?

Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and felt nothing but green-eyed jealousy and evil thoughts?

Award-winning journalist, Grazia agony aunt and real-life big sister to five smart, stylish, stunning twenty-something young women, Daisy Buchanan has been there, done that and got the vajazzle.

In How to be a Grown-Up, she dispenses all the emotional and practical advice you need to negotiate a difficult decade. Covering everything from how to become more successful and confident at work, how to feel pride in yourself without needing validation from others, how to turn rivals into mentors, and how to *really* enjoy spending time on your own, this is a warm, kind, funny voice in the dark saying “Honestly don’t worry, you’re doing your best and you’re amazing!”

I rate this book 5*

A Bicycle Made For Two by Mary Jayne Baker

Here is my #review of @MaryJayneBaker fabulously funny A Bicycle Made For Two and my Thanks to @TheMirrorBooks for posting me a copy out as their 1000th Twitter follower.

I’ve read the majority of Mary Jayne’s work, so knew that I needed to have a nice quiet time sat in my garden, with just the sound of the birds singing in the background.

The day arrived, I sat in my garden I grabbed an ice cold bottle of juice from my fridge and I was set for the ride of my life, ( see what I did there?)

I’m a Yorkshire Lass myself so really felt part of this story. It has everything from Medieval Banquets to Batwoman but there is also a very sensitive side to the story to, which actually was really special . Anyone who has read my reviews before will know I never write any spoilers and I’m not about to know.

I actually choked on many occasions while drinking my juice and reading this book and the belly laughs made it even more enjoyable. My neighborhood have probably had words with the local council about me laughing so loudly.

The characters are well written, the village sounds amazing and once again this Yorkshire Author has blooming done us proud.

Well done Lass 😘😘😘

I give this book 5*

A romantic comedy set against the backdrop of the 2014 Tour de France Grand DΓ©part in Yorkshire.

In a lost corner of the Yorkshire Dales, Lana Donati runs a medieval theme restaurant, Here Be Flagons, with her brother.

When she hatches a plan to boost business by getting the Grand DΓ©part route to pass through their village, the small community must work together to convince the decision-makers they’re Tour material.

Not easy when the cast of characters involved includes Lana’s shy, unlucky-in-love brother Tom, man-eating WI chair Yolanda, bickering spouses Gerry and Sue, arrogant TV star Harper Brady, and Lana’s arch-nemesis, former pro cyclist turned bike shop owner Stewart McLean, whose offbeat ideas might just cost them everything.
