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!

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
