Rating: ★★★☆☆

Synopsis:

Charlotte Crosby has been one of the UK’s best-loved TV stars since she burst onto the celeb scene in 2011 with Geordie Shore. Laugh-out-loud hilarious, genuine, and a proper Geordie, Charlotte’s popularity has even seen her crowned winner of 2013′s Celebrity Big Brother.

With her trademark humour and warmth, in ME ME ME Charlotte takes us on a very unique journey through her eventful teenage years (where literally nothing is off limits!), her attempts at holding down jobs (and booze), the life-changing experience of Geordie Shore, the truth about Gaz and his parsnip, and her inspiring weight-loss triumph. Full of drawings, doodles, and Charlotte’s personal photos, this will be unlike any other celebrity autobiography on the market. Extremely personal, insanely honest and pant-wettingly funny.

Review:

I was drawn to this book after seeing a few clips of Charlotte from Geordie Shore. I’m a huge reality TV fan – it’s definitely my guilty pleasure (the Real Housewives franchise is my all time fav!!). Everytime I saw Charlotte on TV, I found myself laughing out loud at her silly antics, personal commentary and quirky situations she found herself in. If I’m being truly honest, if I ever watch a full episode of Geordie Shore it will purely be because of Charlotte.

I was wandering my local bookstore and the spine of this book totally caught my eye. Little did I know when I picked it up that it was Charlotte’s book! I quickly decided to pick it up and bring it home – I finished it that day!

This book is so funny; there were so many times that I would be laughing to myself. The doodles, her personal experiences and her special way of documenting her life was super entertaining. I especially love the moment that she recounted her interview with MTV for Geordie Shore and they didn’t believe any of her stories because they all sounded made up (spoiler alert: they all actually happened!)

While this was in no way the best autobiography I’ve ever read, it was definitely one that I loved purely for the humour and lack of seriousness. It was such a refreshing change to autobiographies. I would recommend this book to those who just need a really good laugh and those who love Charlotte. If you don’t know what Charlotte is like and are interested in this book, I highly recommend going on YouTube to find some clips – I know there are tons!

She recently came out with a second autobiography, Brand New Me, and after my experience with this one I will definitely be picking it up and writing down my thoughts!

Favourite Quote: “I was so angry I keyed his car. Then I ran him over (well, I drove past him and accidentally clipped the side of his leg then he walked off. I don’t think he would’ve counted it as being run over).”
