Publisher's Summary

Tanya Hennessy can't tell the time on an analogue clock, was once employed as a stilt-walker and still sleeps with Morris, her childhood teddy bear, so naturally, she is the most qualified person to write a guidebook for growing up.   

Am I Doing This Right? is an encyclopedia of life lessons that Tanya has learned so that you don't have to. From A is for Awkward, to B is for Bodies, right through to V is for Viral and Z is for, well, ZZZZ, Tanya has compiled an entire alphabet full of hilarious, horrible, humbling and happy experiences that will make you laugh, make you cry and ultimately leave you feeling less alone in this complicated world.

#relatable

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.

Quick easy listen

There wasn't really much of a story to this book, just a bunch of short anecdotes and personal insights, but some really funny moments and some honest ones. If you follow Tanya Hennessy on social media you may have already heard some of the stuff on here there's a bit that's recycled. She does a great job narrating her story.

Totally worth the wait!!

Already listened to 1/3 of this audio book since yesterday. Everything sounded very natural and the different tones in her voice made it even more interesting to listen to. It is satisfying to hear her read the book, because she is telling her own story and no one else can do it better than her. Her voice made the funny stories funnier, and the sad stories more emotional. If you spend some time listening to it, I am absolutely sure you will be moved by it just like I was. Best way to enjoy this book: Pair with donuts.

Tanya should be an inspiration for everyone

I just love her humour and her voice, it was a pleasure listening to her and her stories. She is such a great, lovely person and I find myself in so many aspects of her life and the way she is thinking. I really wish one day I will have the chance to meet her in person and tell her how much I appreciate her work, how funny she is and what an inspiration she is and should be for all people around the world.

Loved every second of this book!

I finished it in 24 hours. I couldn’t get enough! Tanya is the best narrator it doesn’t even sound like she’s reading from a book. I felt like I was sat having a coffee with her the whole time! I laughed so hard at some points, it’s made my day!
