I found this book super fun, engaging, and almost inspiring in reminding you to pursue your dreams and be yourself in a world of absurd chaos. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). Exploring the exhausting push-pull of trying to pin down a career you love but that doesn't love you back, Buchanan's book is set to capture the zeitgeist as so many of us question where we're at' Stylistcareering (verb) 1.

Instead she’s tasked with creating an online magazine aimed at young women - or ‘The Girl’ as Harri likes think of her. careering follows 20-something imogen, a struggling intern at a fashion magazine who also runs a successful blog on the side, and 40-something harri, who just got passed up for the role of editor in chief and is now trying to launch a new online feminist magazine. And I understand that as Imogen is a sex blogger, sex has to be a vital part of her story and personality, however, I think there were times when the theme was used a little too much, getting out of place in the story and even overshadowing previous events.And at the end, despite all she had been through I wasn't sure anything would actually change going forward. Will she wake up to the way she's being exploited before her protégé realises that not everything is copy? There are moments of tender thought, though; dialogue which always proves extra snappy, and characters that sometimes err on caricatures of themselves - whether that’s a good or a bad thing is there for you to decide.

I found myself relating to some of Imogen's thought processes and difficulties, but every time I had to sit through a chapter from Harry's perspective I felt my eyes roll into the back of my head because it was so boring and so nothing. One of the most poignant threads throughout the novel is this idea of ‘The Girl’ as someone who’s wearing designer clothes and getting regular beauty treatments, when the reality for many 18-35 year old women trying to make it in London is living in a mouldy bedsit eating beans on toast! I listened to this on audio book, so that may have made a difference as to why I didn't connect that well to it. it explores the burnout that comes with working tirelessly towards your dream job, sometimes up to the point when it ceases to even be a dream anymore, along with the inherent privilege surrounding the notion of a ‘dream job’.

With the events of the last two years making many question what really matters in life, Buchanan leaves you with the reminder that whether you love or loathe your job, it doesn't define who you are or put a value on your self-worth.The _ga cookie, installed by Google Analytics, calculates visitor, session and campaign data and also keeps track of site usage for the site's analytics report. I did really enjoy the fist half and the encouraging positive message for women, but I couldn't maintain that interest for the duration of the book.
