To anyone reading this, let me introduce you to my new favourite book: Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton. This is a memoir filled with stories that marked the twenties of journalist Dolly Alderton. The book covers her chase for boys, friendship, failure, work, parties, loss and so much more. Dolly's writing is absolutely beautiful, and I wish I'd have her talent! What I think is so unique about this book is that you will be able to relate to the emotions she described despite not having lived the same things. You will be drawn in from the first story and won't be able to put it down until you've read the last page. And then you'll want more! Dolly released a series of podcasts called "Plates to remember" for the launch of her book with The Pool, you should also have a listen at that.

I think this is a brilliant book, especially if you've just entered your twenties (like me) or if you're still trying to figure everything out and you're well into your twenties. It reminded me a lot of the series 'Girls' because of the raw honesty she uses and the fact that the book is not only about the highlights of her life. Since reading it, I've read the most recent articles she published and most of the podcasts she was featured on, just because I identify so much with what she does and what she promotes. And I'm sure after reading it you will also feel the same way... I don't want to give away to much because you should pick a copy!
