A good read.

After four seasons of The Bachelor/ette, hopefully by now you’re familiar with Rosie’s Recaps.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, pls, Google Mamamia and educate yourself. This girl is funny.

And now she’s released her memoirs that yes, are hilarious too.

The Anti-Cool Girl follows Rosie’s repeated attempts to fit in (something we all can relate to), in the harsher context of her turbulent childhood.

Little known fact: Rosie grew up between foster homes, commission housing and a caravan on her mum’s boyfriend’s lawn. It’s refreshing and honest and a little Lena Dunham- esque, and despite expecting to cry (I didn’t), I had minimum one lol per page.

Now THAT’S a good read.
