When we heard the thud of Union J’s brand spanking new book coming through our letter box, we almost peed ourselves with excitement! What could be better than over 256 pages filled with stuff about Josh, Jaymi, George and JJ? But did ‘Our Story’ live up to our high expectactions?
What we loved most about ‘Our Story’ was that it was just the right balance of pictures and writing. Some books *cough cough* Cheryl ‘Through My Eyes’ *cough cough* has about 20 pictures for every word but with the Union J boys this wasn’t the case. Although the book is chocablock with swoon enducing visuals from the “next big boy band”, it’s also jam packed with stories and anedcotes from the boys’ lives.
‘Our Story’ tracks each Union Jers’ journey from the womb all the way through to today. We learn about the boys childhoods, teenage years (Jaymi dons a pink tux!), their boy band riddled pasts, the formation of Triple J, the X Factor journey that led to the birth of Union J and what they’ve been up to since.
We couldn’t put the book down as we stumbled upon pop gossip gem after pop gossip gem. This is a definite must have for any J-Cat or X Factor fan. The only issue that we wish the book had addressed, was how George feels being the only member of Union J who’s name doesn’t start with J!
‘Our Story’ hits bookshelves and online bookstores on the 26th of September and is a ruddy good read.
