We are thrilled to share that the wonderful new debut 30 Things I Love About Myself by Radhika Sanghani is now published in the UK by Hachette. 30 Things I Love About Myself was first published in the US by Penguin Random House earlier this month, and we are delighted that readers on this side of the pond will now be able to get their hands on a copy.
This bold debut about 30-year-old Nina Mistry who wakes up in a prison cell after getting caught up in a falafel-fuelled protest is as heart-warming as it is hilarious. 30 Things I Love About Myself has already been featured in a list of roundups, from The Nerd Daily, Popsugar‘s list of much anticipated debuts of 2022, Bookriot‘s January 2022 recommendations, and Good Housekeeping‘s best and most anticipated books of 2022. Recently, Radhika shared her compelling personal experience about overcoming heartbreak through the act of self-love in this Glamour article, and the Sun launched a fabulous book competition where 10 copies where given away as a prize.

We can’t wait for you to meet Nina…
When Nina Mistry hits rock bottom – because no one plans to turn thirty in a prison cell – a tatty little self-help book finds its way into her hands. She doesn’t think she needs it; why would a strong, sensible Taurus like her go on a ‘life-changing journey’ to fix herself? But her inner journalist is curious. Within minutes, she’s hooked. By the time the sun comes up, she knows exactly what she needs to do . . .
‘This book will change your life . . . if you’re brave enough to let it.’
This will not be a journey for the faint-hearted, but whatever else Nina has messed up in her life, she’s never been afraid of a challenge.
’30 bold steps. One year.’
Her mother is – as always – appalled. Her brother is too depressed to care. The love of her life? He’s already moved on. And her friends . . . well, that’s another story.
But Nina has Nina.
And she’s about to find out if that’s enough.
A huge congratulations, Radhika!
