What's Your Favorite Book About Being In Your Twenties?

Posted on

ABC

It's a time of finding your place in the world, reinventing early relationships and forging new ones.

NBC

It can also be SUPER FUCKING SCARY.

And even though there isn't a guide to entering adulthood, there's the next best thing: books about people living through it, too.

Maybe you find strength in Therese's journey of self-discovery in The Price of Salt.

Maybe I Was Told There'd Be Cake makes you feel better about your own misadventures.
