My favourite One Direction book

By Sarah Oliver

People often ask which of my books is my favourite but it is honestly too hard to pick just one. I even struggle to pick my favourite One Direction book. I’ve written four books on Harry, Liam, Zayn, Louis and Niall so far and one on Zayn since he left the band.


One Direction A-Z will always be special to me because it was so exciting to be the first person to write a book on them. It was lovely when Louis tweeted fans to ask if they had bought it yet and he got lots of replies. Lots of stores sold out and it became a Sunday Times Best Seller.

I loved writing my double biography of Harry and Niall – just being able to delve deeper into what their childhoods were like and find out more about their families was so fascinating. I love how Niall’s dad still works as a butcher in his local Tesco and has shown fans around his house in the past. My cousin was in Harry’s class at school so it was nice finding out things that other people wouldn’t know.


My next book was a double biography of Zayn and Liam (sorry Louis!) again, I loved looking more closely at their lives pre-X Factor. I love how normal the boys are around their families and how generous they are too. one3

My last book 1D book was Around the World with One Direction and is possibly my favourite out of the four. I had the opportunity to speak to hundreds of fans from around the world and find out what happened when they met the boys – it was just so nice to write. I spoke to fans from so many different countries, it was amazing. I hadn’t even heard of some of the countries before I started writing. I made some great friends and it’s so lovely to know that the boys have so much support.


I was so sad when Zayn left but I enjoyed writing a new biography to sum up his time in 1D and talk about his future plans. I’m so grateful to all the fans who helped me. zayn
