I quite like The Only Way Is Essex (Towie) star Sam Faires. I am a big fan of celebrity gossip magazines and so I am always reading what she is up to in these magazines. So when I heard that she had released a book, I couldn't wait to read it. Living Life The Essex Way is the official autobiography of Sam Faires. The book was released in the United Kingdom in 2012 and so it is fairly recent. The book is currently available to buy from Amazon for a price of £3.86.
I enjoyed this book. I found it interesting learning about Sam's childhood and all that she has done in her life. The book also features talk of her TOWIE days, although I was expecting there to be a lot of juicy gossip, although she just tends to 'skim over' things and doesn't really say too much 'bad' stuff which is a bit of a shame as I was expecting lots of unheard gossip.
I have to say, I always think that there is something quite bitchy about Sam, yet I can't help liking her even if she does seem as though she is using this book to 'big herself up' - she certainly comes across as having a 'I'm great' attitude - although I just can't dislike her. In this book, she comes across as being a bit of a bitch; she is horrible about pretty much everyone . I do like the fact that she is straight to the point and says it likes it is though. She comes across as being quite smart and isn't as dumb as she looks. Even though she's a reality star, I find that there is something quite inspiring about her.
A large proportion of the book focuses on Sam's appearance. She talks about her looks and talks about how she gets ready for a night out. She also shares her beauty tips, so if you want to look like Sam and are interested in beauty then you will like this. This is definitely a glamorous and girlie read.
This book is written in a simple and easy to read way which is good as it provides great light reading which means that it is a great holiday / beach read.
I would recommend this book!
Thanks for reading!
After a book signing where a work and regularly watching the only way is Essex I decided to buy a copy of the book to see what it was all about.
It's a really great light hearted book, giving you a insight into what the Essex way of life is like and what it's all about. Definitely very funny in some places as well as interesting to find out more about the lives of the people on the show.
In some places ip the book was slightly chessey but then it was what I expected it to be and was still a great read.
I would recommend it to anyone who really enjoys watching the show or just enjoys reading autobiographies as its enjoyable in many ways.
It's not a typical autobiography, for example it has make up tips, hair advice etc. which makes it different to books of the same genre. Overall would say it's a great read!
