I really loved this book. Holmes’s debut 50 Ways to Find a Lover is one of the funniest books I’ve ever read and (Un)like a Virgin made me laugh a lot too, but it also made me cry (and come out with a sweary expression I’ve never heard nor used before!). I didn’t want it to end and I missed the main character, Gracie Flowers, after I’d stopped reading. Lovely.
I read this when it came out, but for some reason didn’t remember it being one of her best. I took it on hols to reread (for a sekrit reason!) and absolutely loved it. Actually think it might be one of her best! It made me want to reread all the Walsh books.
My lovely friend Jenni bought me this for my birthday and I actually squeed when I saw it. I have loved Rob Lowe for – gasp – 26 years and, judging by the cover, he’s as hot as he ever was. The book isn’t as gossipy as I was hoping – he tends to gloss over the really juicy bits in his quest to be positive and see lessons in everything. And so, for instance, his sex tape is mentioned, but only in passing and only as the catalyst for him getting sober and changing his life – nothing about how he felt (ashamed? humiliated?).
He also has a really irritating habit with a celebrity anecdote. There were loads that went something like this: “This tiny woman came in, she looked like a boy and she was wearing school uniform. She was a powerhouse of a person and we had a blast together. As we said goodbye, I told her, ‘You, Jimmy Krankie, are fandabidozi!'” (I made that example up. Can you tell? 😉 ) But in the main, I loved it. And it made me want to re-watch all his films. Especially About Last Night *drools a little bit*
