Book Club | Alexa Chung IT


A month?! Yes I know I've taken a break mainly because I had run out of post ideas but now I've got too many to keep locked up. This time I've reduced the stress by only posting once a week or twice if you're lucky (don't get your hopes up!) So welcome me back with lots of comments to motivate me even more! Lets get on with the actual review...

There's no doubt about it that this book is so aesthetically pleasing, but if we get down to the real review the tables turn. The book itself only took a short read with many pages filled with old polaroid images of Alexa herself. I wouldn't exactly call this an autobiography more of a scrapbook meets journal.

There's been many mixed reviews, with many people disliking it or loving it. However they are missing the entire aspect with the fact it's along the lines of pick up when you want to and give it quick flick through - a great addition to your coffee table books!

My favorite parts of the book are when she shows us why she is just like the rest of us even though to the rest of us she might be IT.
She goes on about heartbreak ("Scrolling through photos [on Instagram] of girls your ex may not be shagging won't help you") and even admits that she favours a full brief, ("I'd rather go commando than wedge myself into a g-string"). 

Yes she does get personal but that's what I like about Alexa as she throws herself into it and may I add very witty too! I enjoyed dipping in and out of this book but for £16.99 (or £11.89 on amazon) I do believe that there could have been more too it. However who does not love taking a look into Alexa's life - I'm guilty.

If you love a seemingly good coffee table book or Alexa Chung herself then this is the perfect buy for you!

Have you read it? What was your thoughts? Love or hate? Let me know

  2. You're back!! I haven't gotten my hands on a copy yet, as I've been having second thoughts. Many have been saying that it's a treat only to those who's interested in Alexa's personal life (I'm slightly guilty, I must admit), but I think your review shed a positive light on its content and cosy layout. Not many appreciated the fact that it's more of a published diary, but you described it as how it really is: a coffee table book you'd look at whenever. I'm looking forward to your future posts!! xx
