I've followed Tanya on social media for a while and am so happy she released a book! She's an absolute crack up and is so relatable it's scary. 10/10 would recommend for anyone who needs a laugh, to know theyre not alone in overthinking/ being awkward/ needing an adultier adult in their lives/ needing to love yourself more.
Legend.

John Cleese describes his nerve-racking first public appearance, at St Peter's Preparatory School at the age of eight and five-sixths; his endlessly peripatetic homelife, with parents who seemed incapable of staying in any house for longer than six months; his first experiences in the world of work, as a teacher who knew nothing about the subjects he was expected to teach; his hamster-owning days at Cambridge; and his first encounter with the man who would be his writing partner for over two decades, Graham Chapman.

Love it love it love it! I'm a massive Rothfuss fan and hearing him read Auris story made me love it even more.
The way he writes, and reads, is mesmerizing. He is a true poet....if only he was a musician too 😉

With the fate of the Earth at stake, he will have to traverse diabolical mazes, fight cruel assassins and face unimaginable horrors that will test him like he has never been tested before.

Such drama! Such action!! Jack is back and bigger and crazier then ever. Reilly sure knows how to entertain. It may be pretty unrealistic but hey, who reads (or listens ) for realism? Good show old chap.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook addition of According to Yes, the hilarious new novel by Dawn French. The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy - otherwise known as Manhattan's Upper East Side - has its own rigid code of behaviour. It's a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family. Emotional displays - unacceptable. Unruly behaviour - definitely not welcome. Fun - no thanks. This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham's kingdom.
