Letters to my Fanny

Letters to my Fanny by Cherry Healey

If you are after a light hearted, feel good book, then this is it.

Sometimes on your early morning commute or after a long day, the last thing you want is to start reading heavy literature (there is a time and place, of course), but I'd been after something with a little comedy and interest, and I'm not going to lie, the title sold it to me.

In this book, Cherry writes an open letter to her body parts (bum, boobs, hands, mouth, brain etc), expressing criticism but mostly gratitude for what they have done for her. She shares stories of her life, and notes the life lessons she's learnt along the way, touching on motherhood, growing up, friendship, heartbreak.. y'know? The usual life events.

It's a book I would pass onto other women in my life, especially those who lack confidence because this really is both an enjoyable read, good laugh and self esteem boost all in one.

It's an extremely relatable book, and I'm quite glad I agree with Cherry already on most things despite only being 22, but I know many young women who would benefit from reading this - I promise your time won't be wasted!
