Notes:
I wanted to be a unicorn. I wanted to be a princess. I wanted to be an astronaut. But the thing I really wanted to be more than anything else, was a little less like me. It was only recently I realised not wanting to be me when I grew up was at the heart of every dumb decision I ever made. Yet when I really sat down and thought about it, being me was the thing that people most actually liked about me and it was much easier than trying to be someone else. And so, now I find myself writing this book containing all the life lessons I wish someone had told me at 14, which I am only really learning now. A book for the teenage girl in me. And for every teenage girl out there. Because the most powerful thing you can be when you grow up is yourself. Sharing 10 crucial life lessons, from self-respect and esteem to body confidence and mental health, this is the ultimate guide to growing up happy.

Book:The wrong knickers, a decade of chaos:2015
Author: Gordon, Bryony
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Headline
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2014 Bryony Gordon survived her adolescence by dreaming about the life she'd have in her twenties: the perfect job; the lovely flat; the amazing boyfriend. The reality was something of a shock. Her Telegraph column was a diary of her daily screw-ups; she lived in a series of squalid shoe boxes; and her most meaningful relationship of the entire decade was with a Marlboro Light. In 'The Wrong Knickers', Bryony busts open the glamorized myth of what it means to be a young (perpetually) single girl about London town, and shares the horrible and hilarious truth.

Book:Eat, drink, run:2018
Author: Gordon, Bryony
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Headline
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Bryony Gordon was not a runner. Yet somehow, as she began to recover from the emotional rollercoaster of laying her life bare in her mental health memoir 'Mad Girl', she started to realise that getting outside, moving her body and talking to others for whom life was also an occasional challenge, might actually help her. As she began to run further she started to see the limitations she had imposed on her life more clearly. Maybe rather than sitting on the sofa watching the world go by, fulfilling your dreams was just about standing up and taking that first step. Maybe you can do it too. In April 2017, less than a year after she had weighed herself at over 16 stone but stepped off the scales and started training anyway, Bryony Gordon ran all 26 and 3/4 miles of the London Marathon. Here, she shows us how extraordinary things can happen to us all, no matter what life throws at us, if we're willing to keep going.

Year: 2016
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Headline
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: On the surface it seems that Bryony Gordon has the perfect life. One of the UK's most successful journalists she is married to a man she loves with a two-year-old daughter she adores. Yet inside Bryony's head things are never as straightforward as they seem. Is it possible that she's murdered someone and can't remember? Why did her hair fall out when she was a teenager? Is she capable of hurting her daughter? Has she mysteriously contracted an STD? Why is she always so fat? For while Bryony does have a life many would envy, she is also engaged in a daily battle with mental illness. Fighting with OCD, bulimia and depression, like millions of others in this country, sometimes she finds it a struggle just to get out of bed. Here, in 'Mad Girl' she tackles all of these subjects with her trademark humour, warmth and eye watering honesty.
