My Thoughts Exactly Reviews
Not my usual read. Thought this was going to be more of a gossipy celebrity memoir but Lily Allen tells a very personal story. Especially enjoyed hearing about how she wrote her first song and she has some worthwhile things to say about the way women are treated in our society, not just the music industry. I didn't exactly warm to Lily but I've enjoyed her music over the years and I applaud her refusal to shut the fuck up and be the good little woman.
It takes guts to say what you think, to tell the story unashamedly from your own perspective and to be as willing to share the incredibly painful stuff as to settle scores and defend yourself.
I've always liked Lily Allen and this book has just increased my admiration for her. She's not perfect, she's trying to figure out what what life is meant to be and how you balance roles and expectations of others but also your own. Sometimes she's a dick because who isn't?

Honest, unflappable and brilliant. One of the most incredible audiobooks I’ve ever listened to, Lily’s story has helped me through a very hard time. This is something I’ll definitely come back to time and time again, I can’t recommend this enough.
3.5 out of 5
Lily’s honesty and relatable prose made this such an enjoyable, heartwarming and also heartbreaking read, but left me with such optimism when it comes to challenges in life that we all go through. Thanks Lily!
So honest and very interesting. Definitely worth a read/listen.
I would have finished this book last night if I didn't need to go sleep as I couldn't put it down. I haven't listened to her music in a long time but I liked it when I was a teenager so I picked this up to read more about her. I was surprised by her life and how much she's gone through. I found it honest, raw and thought provoking. A very good read and as I don't tend to read any news anyway it was all new to me as I haven't read anything written about her. Glad i read it, I don't read autobiogr ...more
I liked her, then thought she was a tosser and totally contradictory, then she broke my heart, then I was shouting ‘good for you’ from the rooftops. Searingly honest, constantly contradictory (to the point it was properly pissing me off ) but utterly compelling.
