Spectacles – Sue Perkins

Spectacles is the autobiography of Sue Perkins, probably best known for presenting The Great British Bake Off with her comedy partner Mel Giedroyc.

Sue has a very friendly personality on screen and likewise in her writing. Her writing style is very natural and funny as you’d expect, and I could hear her voice as I was reading.

There are plenty of fantastic anecdotes including her lovely but slightly bonkers family (cheese swap is a genius idea!) and she writes very warmly of her friendship with Mel. Although mostly a warm and funny book there are some emotional moments, particularly when describing her father’s cancer illness and her letter to her dog Pickle is incredibly moving.

A very heartwarming and funny read.
