I enjyoed reading about her life and overall a great book, shame it wasn't a bigger book I could of read on!
Interjected with “Being Binky” tips at the end of each chapter over its 213 pages, Binky tells her story in a very matter of fact way, mostly covering her upbringing of private schools, her parents’ divorce, bullying due to an unnamed learning difficulty before moving to London, which then lead to “Made in Chelsea”. Sounds boring?
“Being Binky” certainly is an autobiography in that it chronicles Felstead’s life so far, but this is not where you’ll find figurative dirt on any of her fellow cast members, and in reality a lot of the later chapters cover what you may have seen on screen already. By this I mean that “Made in Chelsea” is there, but is not gone into specific detail as perhaps you’d want it to.
Did I hate this? No. Did I love this? No, but “Being Binky” will appeal to young women and hardcore fans of “Made in Chelsea”, rather than anyone else.
Binky has always been my favourite female cast member. She seems a bit more down to earth than some of the other girls and is one of those irritating people who always appears effortlessly gorgeous. I have a bit of a crush on her. And I want her hair. So when I saw she had a book out I was full of excitement.
Unfortunately, I wasn't blown away by Being Binky. I was interested in her childhood, her experience of being bullied at school and how she came to be part of Made in Chelsea, but felt there was little in the way of juicy gossip or meaty revelations. The book mostly covers her time up to starting on Made in Chelsea, whereas it would probably work better if it was based more around the relationships between cast members, her honest opinions on key moments in the series and how her life has changed.
There are lists of 'top tips' for things like 'how to apply fake tan' and 'how to date a Chelsea boy' which are really not relevant to me. This is definitely aimed at the younger market, I would say 16-18s. The pictures of Binky growing up will give any girl hope- puberty served her well- and I was amazed at how her Mum hasn't aged at all!
Overall, I was disappointed. I love Binky and thought there was so much potential, but this book fell a bit flat for me. It would have been better being marketed as a teen book, as a quick look on Amazon shows that other older fans of the show have had similar thoughts to me. I can imagine younger readers will enjoy it as an easy read and find the lists fun, but for me it could have been so much more.
