Book Review: Fearne & Holly, The Best Friends' Guide to Life PLUS 2 COPIES TO GIVE AWAY!!!

Here's what Fearne and Holly have to say about the book:
Hello! This is a book written by proper best friends- us!- who have been hanging out together for over 10 years. We thought that if we shared some of our own experiences and views on friendship, relationships, leaving home, studying or starting a new job, then it might help you on your own journey.
Inside you'll find loads of stories- some funny, some sad and some that make us cringe with embarrassment- as well as tips and advice on things like dating and looking good. We've included our best photos from over the years (even the dodgy ones!) and drawings that Fearne has done especially.
Let's face it, life isn't easy a times so we hope that this book will make you laugh, entertain you, but most of all that it might be a bit like talking to your very best friend. 

I really enjoyed reading this book, I would describe it as part-autobiography and part guide to life which is great as different readers will get different things from it. Fearne and Holly are  both highly successful women so it was very interesting to learn about their career paths and the many obstacles that they had faced. Obviously we don't all work within the media but their advice pretty much rings true in all walks of life and it is good to know that they too have endured cringe-worthy office Christmas parties! I found that I completely identified with their friendship, they are very different in so many ways yet they couldn't be closer as friends. My relationship with my best friend is like that; she is very much the louder, more social one but I know she does is one of the best people to bring me out my shell and make sure that I have a good time.
Everything is covered in the book, love, relationships, babies, work, home interior, friends, bosses, clothes, make-up, music, films, I could go on and on. It was good to see that Fearne and Holly don't feel that they have to agree on everything either, they simply respect each others view points and way of living their lives.

The Best Friends' Guide to Life is a really entertaining read and the book throughout is gorgeous to look at. As I said it is a bit like an autobiography in that it is discussing Holly and Fearne's experiences but then it is discussing life in general. I think it would make a great present for anyone who is a fan of these two ladies or just as lovely gift to your best friend, I'm sure there are loads of experiences and views on friendship that you will identify completely with.

The extremely lovely and generous people at Ebury Publishing have given me not one but two books to give away to readers of my blog. To win a copy then simply leave me a comment at the end of this post, unfortunately I can only send within the UK but this competition will remain open until Wednesday 24th November at midnight, good luck!!

Hi Dot,

I have to be up front and say that this is not my usual type of book, celebrities talking about themselves as if they were something out of the ordinary, just doesn't do it for me.

I am however, intrigued by the format that has been used here, with the story told more as a relationship between good friends.

Knowing a little about both Fearne and Holly, I bet it is a scream in places, and a real eye-opener in others, so please put me forward for your draw.

I too have a friend is so much more outgoing and much more of a party animal, than I am. Sometimes I can feel myself cringing, when we are out together, but I have to admit, she is the life and soul of any event and she would stick up for me without a moments hesitation.
