This all jarred with her sex blog, a girl so confident she would publish her sex life for all to read, including her possibly violent father. Daisy has also appeared on a number of TV and radio shows including Woman’s Hour, The Today Programme, Soul Music, A Good Read, This Morning and Good Morning Britain. the narrative did feel a little disjointed due to the quick pov switches between imogen and harri, and some of the dialogue was a little cringey at times. As Imogen is a sex blogger, I think the book is trying to send some sort of message about the modern woman feeling empowered and yet shamed for it?

Blisteringly funny and painfully perceptive, with a warmth that radiates off the page, this book will speak straight to the heart of anyone who has ever felt like their own career is playing hard-to-get. Her books include the novels Insatiable (longlisted for the CWIP prize) , Careering (as heard on BBC Sounds) and Limelight, and the non-fiction titles How To Be A Grown Up and The Sisterhood.The author makes nods at various themes so subtly that it allows the reader to make their own conclusions and opinions which makes the trials and tribulations feel more personal. Exploring the exhausting push-pull of trying to pin down a career you love but that doesn't love you back, Buchanan's book is set to capture the zeitgeist as so many of us question where we're at.

Daisy really shows both sides of the story so well- especially with the comparison of Louise, another young woman working with Imogen whose biggest concern is her dad no longer paying her extortionate rent if she doesn’t make something of herself. Will she wake up to the way she's being exploited before her protege realises that not everything is copy?

For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. The book does a great job at singing a huge spotlight on the Grinding culture and the things that Women must sacrifice to be “Successful” It shows the pressure that is put on them as well to land their dream job and, in some cases, the hard work leads that dream job to turn into the thing that is running you into the ground. Much like Insatiable, it brushes against some deeper themes, too, including grief and difficult familial relationships.

Writing her blog around double shifts at the pub is neither fulfilling her creatively nor paying the bills. there’s also some great (and to me, very relatable) commentary on the class and financial inequities that come with working in the media industry, and also the struggle of being a working class 20-something living in london. We use Google Analytics to see what pages are most visited, and where in the world visitors are visiting from. But Imogen's fairy-tale ending soon sours as she finds herself putting more and more of herself into writing for a company that doesn't care if she sinks or swims.As someone far removed from corporate life in London I didn’t necessarily think I’d relate to this book. Like The Devil Wears Prada and The Pursuit of Love had a baby which was then adopted by a grittier Jilly Cooper.
