Claudia Winkleman: Quite

Blurb:

Funny, moving and truthful… Quite
Claudia Winkleman’s warmth, humour, no-holds-barred attitude and smoky eye have made her the favourite broadcaster of millions and a much-loved household name.

In this, her first ever book, Claudia invites us all into her world. She shares her observations on topics such as the importance of melted cheese, why black coats are vital, how it’s never okay to have sex with someone who has an opinion on your date outfit, how nurses are our most precious national treasure, and why colourful clothing is only for the under 10s (if you’re reading this sporting a bright red jumper and you’re 9, great! If you’re older, sorry).

This is a love letter to life – the real, sometimes messy kind. Quite celebrates friendship, the power of art, the highs and lows of parenting, and of course, how a good eyeliner can really save your life.

Heartfelt, wry and unmistakably Claudia, this book gets to the heart of what really matters.

Review:

I love Claudia Winkleman on Strictly and when I was reading Quite it felt like she was speaking to me. Her voice is unmistakable and it comes through really well. She gives her honest opinion on a number of things, some serious (like parenthood) and some not so serious (like omelettes) and her chatty tone throughout the book made it seem as though I was talking to a friend.

I expected a few more autobiographical details and some juicy gossip about Strictly, but this is not the book for that. It’s no worse for it though. It’s relatively short and the chapters are snappy, but I found her observations to be surprisingly on point and this makes it incredibly relatable. I’m especially glad to find someone who feels the same way about naps as I do and I will endeavour to follow her advice on how to do it more effectively.

Quite is available from Amazon.
