Emma Hughes recommends
Careering (2022)
Daisy Buchanan
"Careering will strike such a chord with anyone who has ever walked to a job interview in trainers with a tote bag containing heels over their shoulder, feeling like an imposter."
Tell Me Everything (2022)
Laura Kay
"Glorious, hilarious and life affirming . . . I absolutely loved it - reading it felt like sitting on Brighton Beach with my funniest, smartest friends and several dozen tins of alcohol."
