Review - Sofa, So Good; Me Life Story by Scarlett Moffatt

I am so, so excited to be bringing you my review of Sofa, So Good; Me Life Story by Scarlett Moffatt!!

What They Say:

Fact: Did you know, over its lifespan, your sofa will witness roughly 293 arguments and 1,369 cuddles?

Hiya, my name's Scarlett Moffatt and I love random facts. Almost as much as I love sitting on me sofa. You might know me best from my most famous and celebrated sit thus far on the I'm A Celebrity throne. You might also know me from all sorts of other seats, most especially my Gogglebox sofa. Well this book is my attempt at telling me life story through a whole series of them!

So I'd like you right now to stop what you're doing and take a seat, whether it be in the comfort of your own home, on the top deck of the bus, on the tube (so you don't have to make eye contact with anybody) or on the throne of the house (a.k.a. the toilet). I want you to get comfortable and get ready to laugh, cry and maybe even learn a bit, as I chat to you about some of the highs and lows of me life.
So grab a brew, settle down, and let's start from the very beginning...

What I Say:

Oh... This book! It is incredible! I was a fan of Scarlett before reading this, having watched her on Gogglebox and when I was offered the chance to read her new book ahead of its' release, I jumped at the opportunity.

This is an incredibly honest, moving and funny look into Scarlett's life up to now. We are brought back to her childhood, a time where she struggled because she was quirky. We get to follow her journey to Uni, her early jobs and on to Gogglebox. We get to know her and her amazing family and follow their journey with Scarlett to this dream-like life she is living now.

What I love most about the way this book is written is that it is all Scarlett. You can tell she sat down and wrote every single word herself. It is her on the page. She is incredibly open, honest, funny and warm. She is just like us, she has insecurities and dramas. She is not afraid to be herself now, no longer desperate to fit in.

The journey Scarlett has been on, and no doubt will continue on, is so inspirational. She had a list of dream jobs and has achieved most of them. She has met most of her heroes and been to amazing places. And yet she takes nothing, not a single second, for granted.

I love it and repect her so much for her wonderful outlook. 11/10.

I feel so lucky to have read this book early, with huge thanks to Francesca Pearce at Bonnier Publishing for this opportunity!

Sofa So Good is out in paperback, hardback and e-book now!

What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …
