By Reb W
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book - took it away on holiday for beach time reading - a perfect indulgence.

I thought that Cheryl was really honest with her accounts of events, emotions, and activities through her life. I then read Kimberley's book and her recollection of events seemed to match pretty perfectly.

For anyone who is a Girls Aloud or Cheryl fan this is a great read. Or if you are just curious about the woman herself, then definitely worth reading. A great insight into how Girls Aloud worked together, Cheryl's relationships with her family, friends, boyfriends and then-husband.

My one and only criticism is that she is VERY scathing about the media, and at times those parts can get a bit ranty about being followed by the paps, but I think really it is just a reflection of how she felt hounded at the time, and she's just trying to make that point.

Overall, a really lovely book. Perhaps in a few more years there will be a follow up.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inspirational honest autobiography! 19 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase

Title: My Story
Author: Cheryl Cole
Publication Date: October 2012
Publisher: Harper

For the first time Cheryl tells her full story, her way. Revealing the truth behind the headlines, this is the only official autobiography, giving the fans the true story they've been waiting for. Includes exclusive, personal photos.

I've had this sat in my TBR pile for a while now and kept putting it off for reading but I finally got round to reading it this week, and I am shocked why I didn't decide to read this sooner, First of all, People who aren't fans of Cheryl aren't going to enjoy this, I'll be honest, However for the real fans then you will enjoy this so much, as its the one and only autobiography that gives you the truth right from the beginning.

I loved how I got to read things from her childhood and how tough it was in the Geordie areas of Newcastle and the rise of drugs as Cheryl was growing was horrible to read with having a family member go through I knew exactly how Cheryl felt when her childhood boyfriend, friends got hooked on the worst drug ever Heroin but she never once gave up her dream of being a star one day!

This is one autobiography I am not going to forget in a heartbeat, I loved it, Cheryl is certainly an inspirational woman with plenty of strength who pushes herself back if she hits rock bottom!
Ladies out in the world need to take a leaf in Cheryl's steps I tell you. Cheryl is completely honest all the way through this book whether its in her childhood and how tough her mam coped or her marriage or what really went down on American X factor, Cheryl is true to her word in her autobiography.

For Cheryl's Soldiers out there, You will truly adore this and be inspired by Cheryl so much. In my opinion after reading this, I actually admire Cheryl so much more and is a true role model.
I Salute You!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read. 29 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book wasn't on my to read list, I wouldn't say Cheryl Cole is one of my favourite stars but I do like her personality and I like quite a lot of Girls Aloud recordings/used to like watching her on X Factor etc. I saw Cheryl on the Allen Carr chatty man show and she was promoting her autobiography and I just wanted to read it then. I thought she came over really well on the chat show and so I downloaded the kindle sample. It was surprisingly good so I bought the full kindle edition. Cheryl said on the Allen Carr show that so much rubbish had been written about her that just wasn't true and that this was her chance to set the record straight. This is very well written and starts from her childhood and how Cheryl and her family had no luxuries and quite a hard life. From an early age Cheryl shone at singing and dancing and actually got a scholarship to spend some time at The Royal ballet school so she really has some solid training, something I didn't realise. Cheryl won quite a few talent shows at this time. The book is an easy read which keeps your interest going. It has a good selection of photos from childhood right up to the present day. She tells everything like it is including Simon Cowell and her marriage to Ashley Cole. She doesn't bad mouth Ashley she just says what went wrong with their marriage and I really admire how mature Cheryl and her family are in that they can all get on together with Ashley now. This wasn't a book I would have been rushing to the bookshop to buy on release day but in fact I found it a great read, it really changed my mind about Cheryl. Well done Cheryl.

I couldn't put it down and have a new found respect for Cheryl - it's like you can hear her voice through the pages! It's easy reading so you get hooked quickly, and I was amazed at just how much she's had to deal with during her life. I really hope the next book is filled with happier anecdotes - she really deserves it!

5.0 out of 5 stars What an inspiring beautiful woman 13 Jan. 2013
I got bought this book for Christmas and I have to admit I had no strong feeling about Cheryl Cole before reading her book, neither liked or disliked her but after reading her story I truly admire her, she is a strong independant and beautiful woman.

I have to disagree with the review below which says its more like a series of events tnan her actual story. I believe Cheryl was very honest in this book and delved deep into events which have happened in her life. As a celebrity she cannot help that we already know of many of these events such as her divorce with Ashley but I think the book was a good platform for her to show her side of the story.

It was an easy read and I didn't want to put it down and it really made me warm to Cheryl as a person, yes many of us suffer highs and lows in out lives but not many of us have to go through it all in the public eye.
