It can be easy to feel down and focus on the bad news during lock-down – and reading can be a great way to escape for a while. Here are some amusing memoirs to lighten the mood.

How To Be Champion by Sarah Millican

Just like comedian Sarah Millican, this book is both witty and heart-warming. It was also a number one Sunday Times bestseller. Sarah tells of a variety of scenarios in her ‘average’ life.

You’ll be laughing out loud to her anecdotes as she reflects on wearing leggings two days in a row and a break-up in a Frankie & Benny’s.

Is It Just Me? by Miranda Hart

If you’ve never seen her hit TV show, we’d highly recommend you watch that for a giggle. If you have, you’ll know how many awkward situations Miranda Hart gets herself into.

In her autobiography, you hear all about some of these mishaps, which you can learn from while you LOL along the way.

May I Have Your Attention Please? by James Corden

While James is pretty cool now, and loved by many, in school it was rather different. He always dreamt of being the cool kid and even tried to form his own boy band.

After dealing with bounds of rejection, he finally co-wrote the hit show Gavin and Stacey. This funny book takes readers on the journey of how he made it big in life.

Him & Me by Jack and Michael Whitehall

Jack Whitehall and his father take turns to tell their life stories in their own comical way. As usual, they bicker and argue over each other’s version throughout, and their relatable, hilariously honest rants make the memoirs even funnier.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling

In her autobiography, Mindy shares witty confessions and ideas. From being a shy young girl to living the high life in Hollywood, she talks dating and friendships. It’s a positive, easy read that’ll make you smile.
