Unfiltered

Ali and Shelly are back. But behind the filters, things are more chaotic than ever.

Ali Jones is dealing with a lot. The fallout from her ill-conceived plan to fake a pregnancy to gain new social media followers, an inbox filled with horrible messages, her ex is still ignoring her ... Oh, and she actually is pregnant. For real this time.

But as Ali debates trying to salvage her online career as a desperate step to support her baby, Queen of the Influencers Shelly Devine discovers that her mysterious stalker seems to know a shocking amount about the life not shown in her glossy aspirational content - a life Shelly wants to keep hidden.

As Ali and Shelly try to figure out how to live their lives online, they start to realise that the lines between fact and fiction are still blurry, even for them. And might they be in danger of losing the people that matter most?

Corpsing

Nora Ephron meets Bram Stoker in Sophie White's vivid and ambitious literary non-fiction collection. White asks uncomfortable questions about the lived reality of womanhood in the 21st century, and the fear that must be internalised in order to find your path through it. White balances vivid storytelling with sharp-witted observations about the horrors of grief, mental illness, and the casual and sometimes hilarious cruelty of life.

Filter This

The Glossie Influencer Awards are fast approaching and Ali Jones is hell-bent on a win and breaking through 10,000 followers on Instagram. But when Ali inadvertantly leads people to believe she's pregnant, she quickly realises that playing the 'Mummy-Influencer' card could be her ticket to Insta-success. And she's not going to let a small detail like a fake pregnancy get in her way. Even if the reappearance of Tinder Sam, who seems determined to take his role of 'baby' daddy seriously, makes things a little more complicated ...

Elsewhere on Insta, Shelly Devine, Ireland's biggest influencer (and Ali's idol) is also guarding secrets from her followers, and her husband ...

Both Ali and Shelly have decisions to make but as the night of the Glossies draws near, will they realise what's important before they lose what matters most?
