Full of Daisy's trademark insight, wit, empathy and relatability, Pity Party is the perfect book for anyone who has ever felt as though they've made a mistake. Pity Party is perfection and I will happily devour every word Daisy ever writes.
Pity Party is both deeply moving and very funny. A raw, honest exploration of love, loss, and the complexity of grief. I read it in one sitting. I loved it.
Pity Party is genius. It's my perfect book. It's full of light and darkness, it's hilarious and heartbreaking. It reminds me of Rachel's Holiday. It's painfully funny and often painful in an emotional way, but always unbelievably good. This is the best book I've read in ages - and Daisy's best book yet. I want everyone I know to read it so I can spend the next month talking about it. There are so many brilliantly funny moments, and so much to relate to. Katherine is such a likeable heroine - fully well-rounded and real and difficult and weird - but entirely loveable. I want her in my life full time. I really loved loved loved this book.
Daisy Buchanan manages to make bereavement not only gloriously readable, but genuinely funny - without losing sight of real emotion. With a relatable heroine and a brilliant supporting cast of characters, this is Daisy's best yet. I tore through it.
Buchanan's best yet! Every page crackles with wit and every character deserves their own spin-off. As heartening as it is hilarious, Pity Party is a masterful portrait of grief, contemporary wellness culture and the ways we attempt to heal. It's the funniest book you'll read all year, and maybe the most beautiful too.
Thought-provoking, charming, cathartic and hilariously vivid. I highlighted a million little passages and sentences and metaphors and jokes. I don't know how Daisy does it, but I'm so glad that she does.
In that way that you only experience with the very best writers, every line in this book is a wonder. Daisy made me feel everything. There are silly, laugh-out-loud, proper jokes in there - the setting is perfectly chosen for hilarity - but seconds after snorting over a Humpty Dumpty gag, I would realise tears were running down my face. Mostly, I thought this was a very unique, very human story. In that way that you also only experience with the very best writers, I drew out the last few pages, knowing I would miss Pity Party in my life and that the next book on my list would have a lot to live up to. Gorgeous.
