My Thoughts Exactly Reviews

  • Kristy

    Unlike a lot of celebrities (or the rest of us, really), Lily Allen is completely honest and open about her failures and shortcomings. In her memoir, she sets straight a lot of the misconceptions about her, while owning up to the times when she acted like a complete twat too. Allen has gone through some tough experiences, learned from them and come out the other side a fierce and intelligent woman.

  • Keith

    Deeply Honest, and fascinating. Always liked her, but like her more now.

    As far as celebrity memoirs go you really get your moneys worth here. I believe if your going to write a tell all memoir you might as well tell the truth and nothing but the truth and this is what Lily Allen does. Her life is a series of big fuck ups and she owns them all, she is a straight shooter and doesn’t mess about with anything that tries to sell a pretty picture. You get real. There is much to feel sad for Lily and she wears all her vulnerabilities on her sleeve it’s hard to feel any cri

    As far as celebrity memoirs go you really get your moneys worth here. I believe if your going to write a tell all memoir you might as well tell the truth and nothing but the truth and this is what Lily Allen does. Her life is a series of big fuck ups and she owns them all, she is a straight shooter and doesn’t mess about with anything that tries to sell a pretty picture. You get real. There is much to feel sad for Lily and she wears all her vulnerabilities on her sleeve it’s hard to feel any criticism. She’s brave and her story adds to the narrative of empowering women to speak up and not feel ashamed. Taking back the power from men, the fakes, the users and the media who have taken so much from her already. Standing up to the haters and owning her story. Gotta love a woman strong enough to do that.

    Honest, unflappable and brilliant. One of the most incredible audiobooks I’ve ever listened to, Lily’s story has helped me through a very hard time. This is something I’ll definitely come back to time and time again, I can’t recommend this enough.

    What a read this book was. I’ve read many autobiographies over the years and this is by far one of the most honest and brutal that I’ve read. I wouldn’t say I was a Lily Allen ‘fan’, though in 2009 I did love It’s Not Me, It’s You and I certainly haven’t followed her life with any interest and so My Thoughts Exactly was a huge eye opener.

    Lily has really bared her soul here and revealed everything and it is a hugely emotional book the whole way through. I had no idea everything that she had been

    What a read this book was. I’ve read many autobiographies over the years and this is by far one of the most honest and brutal that I’ve read.

    Lily has really bared her soul here and revealed everything and it is a hugely emotional book the whole way through. I had no idea everything that she had been through and can only admire her after reading this story, to write about the stuff she does here so openly I think is extremely brave. I won’t list everything that she talks about but it’s honest, real, heartfelt and heartbreaking. It’s uplifting in places as Lily overcomes her demons and sends out some strong messages for women everywhere, in fact I’d say all teenage girls (and even grown-up women) should read this book. I feel like many people might have an opinion about Lily and many might overlook this book because of her age or I was going to say who she is but now I’ve read the book that should say ‘who people think she is’. Read this book and discover the real Lily Allen.

    Ergens tussen een vier en een vijf, omdat ik zo onder de indruk ben van de verfrissende eerlijkheid en kwetsbaarheid waarmee Lily Allen dit boek schreef.

    Zo graag gelezen, erg door geraakt en geïnspireerd.

  • Tez

    NOTE: Miscarriage/stillbirth.

  • Monica

    Not my usual read. Thought this was going to be more of a gossipy celebrity memoir but Lily Allen tells a very personal story. Especially enjoyed hearing about how she wrote her first song and she has some worthwhile things to say about the way women are treated in our society, not just the music industry. I didn't exactly warm to Lily but I've enjoyed her music over the years and I applaud her refusal to shut the fuck up and be the good little woman.

    I read Lily Allen’s book My Thoughts Exactly after work today. A quick read but not an easy one.

    It’s about fame, excess, breakups and breakdowns. Love and mothering. Making mistakes and owning mistakes. Addiction and sobriety. Bad sex and good sex. Anger and mental illness. Body image. Abuse. Her truth.

    I really liked (and empathized with) Lily’s insight into trolling and stalking, and the expectation to be a good girl yet online abusers can say what they want. There was a passage about the dou

    I really liked (and empathized with) Lily’s insight into trolling and stalking, and the expectation to be a good girl yet online abusers can say what they want. There was a passage about the double standards of responding to online abuse, and it just floored me. I related so much.

    Lily is so clever and quick witted and vulnerable. This book captures it all.

    Thank you Lily, I hope you’re doing ok. And I’m so glad you finally had an orgasm.
