Grace's Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-up by Grace Helbig | Book Review


Summary:

Infused with her trademark saucy, sweet, and funny voice, Grace’s Guide is a tongue-in-cheek handbook for millennials, encompassing everything a young or new (or regular or old) adult needs to know, from surviving a breakup to recovering from a hangover. Beautifully illustrated and full-color, Grace’s Guide features interactive elements and exclusive stories from Grace’s own misadventures—like losing her virginity solely because her date took her to a Macaroni Grill—and many other hilarious lessons she learned the hard way.

The great thing about her is that she can be so simple and really allows you to relate to her, but at the same time she´s incredibly smart and has a great way of seeing and analyzing life and the way people act.

The reason I say this is because the book comes across as so honest as she talks about the pain in her life like panic attacks. The book gives you permission to love yourself despite your flaws. This book really shows off her talents as a writer and comedienne.

She covers everything from school to job interviews to travel tips to how to properly throw and attend a party. She talks about her experiences with anxiety and gives some great advice on how to deal with it. It was a full on advice book, with lists and notes and tasks.

Although most of the book is silly and hilarious, there is loads of practical information and some tips and advice I found to be useful. I especially appreciate the acronyms she creates at the end of each chapter.

The book is a quick and easy read as it is organized around chapters.
