We’ve all be there and we don’t want to be there again, that’s why team EW have selected our most favourite books for you to take our advice and read!

Deputy Editor, Alexandria Gouveia – The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson

“I thoroughly recommend The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson (author of The Men Who Stare At Goats). Both hilarious and positively frightening as Jon explores madness, psychopaths and gets you questioning those around you.”

Style Editor, Jade Sprowson – Valley Of The Dolls by Jacqueline Susann

“Jacqueline Susann’s Valley Of The Dolls is a cult classic. Some people call it trashy kitsch chick lit, I see it as revelation of an era gone by,  from the 1940s all the way through to the 1960s, high lighting the ups and down of the rich and famous.  It’s a brave and bold novel that’s became a guilty pleasure of mine.  If you haven’t already read it, you must!  ”

“Jo Wood lifts the lid on life married to one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most notorious hell raisers, Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones, in her no holds barred autobiography. A total treat, that I couldn’t even put down to take a dip in the pool!”
