BOOK REVIEW: LILY ALLEN – MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY

BOOK REVIEW: LILY ALLEN – MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY

But, when I first saw this TV drama was coming, I saw that it was actually based on a book by the same name. So, after the first episode, I ordered myself a copy. And, it’s safe to say, the book is just as, or if not more, gripping than the TV show…
