My Thoughts Exactly by Lily Allen

Anyone familiar with Lily Allen and her music will know she's not one to 'Beat around bush' blunt, rude or brash however you like to describe her lily certainly knows how to tell it like it is with her no holds barred attitude that I have always admired her for.

In the introduction Lily admits she's too young to write her entire story and at 33 she certainly is! Instead the book concentrates on the things she thinks readers will be interested in ''the things in my life that changed events, upended things, upset the cart'' Her early life, career, family, drug and alcohol problems are all covered no subject is too precious.

I felt that the book gave a good incite into who Lily really is with no bullshit. I  would say reading the book felt very similar to going down the pub with a friend for a good old heart to heart, this is because Lily has a unique writing style that is witty but also very moving she makes the reader feel like she's talking just to you.

I would really recommend this book it certainly challenged my preconceptions. If you think you have a good idea of what its like to be a celebrity or what Lily Allen is really like this book sets the records straight.

My Thoughts Exactly is out to buy now
