Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Love this book. Finished it in two days, such a good quick read. I love how there is a lot of drawings and pictures in the book, almost like a short story. I'm a big fan of Alexa Chung and reading this book was worth it.
Amazing/unique book!!! Love it.
Alexa Chung book "IT" is a enjoyable read. There some interesting photos that Alexa took and drawing from her too and their some advice too. Their some insight in to life too from when she younger and till an adult. Anyone that I a fan of Alexa Chung should check out this book.
Alexa Chung wrote this book for young girls (her fans). It is neither a formal biography nor a book of great stories. Chung wrote this book as if it were her diary --filled with doodles and pictures. She doesn't focus on her life story, instead shows the reader her witty and funny side. She doesn't take herself too seriously in this book; therefore, shows she's just like everyone: trying to live life and have fun. You can tell she had fun writing/making this book. If you are a fan of Alexa Chung, I would definitely recommend it. You will like/love her even more than you do now. Also, if you're at a loss for inspiration, you can simply check back to the book for some magic If you are a grown and mature adult, have no idea who Alexa Chung is, and does not keep up with the current fashion, then move along and continue reading Bukowski.
