The Wrong Knickers

Wednesday, 28 January 2015

In a generation of social media savvy individuals, we tend to neglect the traditional paperback for a constant stream of live updates. We sacrifice our sleep because of buzzing brains and choose the Daily Mail's sidebar of shame over well-written novels which realistically, needs to stop. I used to love reading when I was younger and I've recently come to realise that I really miss it. As silly as it may sound, there's nothing more satisfying than not being able to put a book down because you're completely and utterly gripped. As soon as I heard about The Wrong Knickers, I knew I had to read it so borrowed it from my trusty human library, Abby. As an aspiring journalist myself, who loves to daydream about leading the perfect London life, it was completely inspiring to read about Bryony's journey to becoming a journalist. Her book is hilariously witty while remaining painfully realistic which is what I loved about it. Bryony shatters the glamorous stereotype which is often associated with being a journalist in the capital city. The book conveys a reassuring message that it's okay not to have everything figured out just yet, and as a great believer of everything happening for a reason, it was refreshing to read such honest and wise words. Hats off to Bryony for a fascinating, humorous and inspiring read and for reinforcing the fact that everything will be okay in the end. And if it's not okay, it's not the end.
