Waterstones Says

From leaving the oven on to embarrassing yourself in front of tradespeople, TikTok star and chronic overthinker Hayley Morris is here to share her most hilariously cringeworthy moments and reassure all readers that they are not alone in practicing such humiliating behaviour.

Brain: We left the oven on!
Me: No don't say that, I've not got time for this!
Brain: The house is probably on fire!
Me: Stop it, I need to write this book description.
Brain: But the blazing fire.
Me: We didn't even use the oven today.
Brain: But what if -
Me: No. We're not doing this, I'm finishing this description.

Hello there! Hayley Morris here. Or you might know me as the Brain Girl, and don't be fooled... it's not because I'm outrageously smart. Just an avid overthinker. I'm on a mission to prove once and for all that You. Are. Normal. Running through imaginary arguments whilst showering, hiding your knickers in the nurse's office before they look directly into your vagina, or not knowing how to be a normal human when you have the plumber over. I've spent the majority of my life saying and doing embarrassing things that wake me up in a cold sweat at 3am as my brain reminds me of every minor detail.

In this book, I've overthought absolutely everything so you don't have to. I'll be talking about everything from dating to discharge, mental health to menstrual cups. I might not be able to banish your anxiety or make you feel 100% comfortable in your skin, but I hope I can at least give you a break from the constant brain chatter and we can rejoice and laugh at how similar we actually all are.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Calling all avid overthinkers, this funny and honest book is here to give you a break from the constant brain chatter. - Stylist

Hayley Morris's debut is a fresh, very funny take on 21st-century high-functioning anxiety... an insightful, intimate account of modern life that is a joy to read, with shades of Dolly Alderton's Everything I Know about Love - Scarlett Sangster, iNews

‘Hayley Morris brilliantly describes what it’s like to be a chronic overthinker, with wit, charm and relatability. She’ll have you nodding along to shared stories, laughing out loud in solidarity and feeling like you’ve been given permission to accept your quirky inner thoughts.’ - Psychologies

Hilarious...I absolutely loved this book! I almost wet myself from laughing! - Dr Amir Khan

A fresh, laugh-out-loud take on 21st-century high-functioning anxiety, Hayley Morris's honest and easy-to-read debut is a joy. It's a zeitgeist novel for our times, exposing just how normal it is to feel abnormal... Morris' insightful narrative to modern life feels like confessing to a best friend. Hayley Morris is most definitely an author to watch. - Press Association
