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.

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.
10 out of 10 for honesty.
First and foremost, how perfect is the title for this autobiography? So clever! Although that being said, for many critics who wage war against the English musician (and there are plenty), Lily’s thoughts exactly won’t be high on their Christmas wishlist this year.

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?
