Funny woman, Instagram star and international comedy sensation, Celeste Barber's Challenge Accepted! is a hilarious and outspoken guide to life, unwanted gas and how to rock a sexy scar. It's real, like totally, really real.

Actor, writer and comedian, Celeste Barber is one very funny woman - not to mention a global social media comedy phenomenon. Amassing over 3.8 million followers in three years with her hilarious #celestechallengeaccepted pics, she has been dubbed 'Australian Comedy Queen' by ABC Online; voted The Funniest Lady on Instagram; gone on sold-out comedy tours of the US; and won herself fans ranging from Tom Ford and Ruby Rose to Amy Schumer and Dawn French.

In the tradition of Tina Fey's Bossypants, Challenge Accepted! is part memoir, part comedy routine, part advice manual. Calling out our ridiculous obsession with celebrity Instagram culture, Celeste reveals all, including her thoughts on keeping it real, the secrets to love, friendship, family and marriage ( oh hai, #hothusband), and how to deal with life's many challenges, like, motherhood, and what to do when your local bottle shipowner can't remember your name.

Celeste is raucous, real and hilarious. Bring it on.

I love Celeste, so am sad to report that I found her book very difficult to follow. She has some good stories to tell, but it was not an easy read.

A page-turner from the get-go. A glimpse into the layers that make up the phenomenon that is Celeste Barber. Unfortunately she's not after more friends, but this book makes me love her more! Get this book. You will love it.

If you want a book that is written by an amazing author, THIS.IS.NOT.THEBOOK.FOR.YOU! This book is hilarious, it is exactly how I would imagine a conversation with Celeste would go. Just a random flow of topics and things that come into her head. I LOVE THIS BOOK.

Such a great read! Pre-ordered as soon as I could as a birthday present to myself from my partner. Read from cover to cover in 2 days. Not only hilarious but the flow was well done despite the chapters being randpm. Celeste Barber delivers with a funny but also intimate and inspirational look into her life. 10/10

Loved this book, Celeste is honest, funny and real. She takes us on the ride that has been her life, brutally and hilariously honest about her own shortcomings and her unexpected climb to insta-stardom. Great for a light-hearted, funny read, Celeste reminds us that at the end of the day we are all just people doing our own thing.

Phenomenal!

Celeste is purely every woman's spirit animal! We all want to be her, have been her or would just love to have her as a friend. Her book is brave, bold, humble and honest. Her experiences are relatable and beautiful and I just wish there were more pages. Loved it!
