I'm in my late 20s, so I figured I'd give this a whirl to see how I "stacked" up, especially someone who's managed to get published.

Well, I think I'm doing ok. My idea of an adult dinner party drink is wine, NOT tequila and Triple Sec. I pay my bills on time and don't claim electric only needs to be paid when they're threatening to turn off the power. And while I too spent some time living with my parents post-college, I was in grad school and not layabouting in my childhood bed.

Parts of the book were good. I enjoyed the last chapter of finding your home, something especially relevant to those of us figuring out where we feel at home and at ease. And while she does have a wicked sense of humour, she definitely overuses it in this book. I found myself rolling my eyes time after time.

I can see why some people would enjoy this book, though, and like I said, I enjoyed parts, but overall, it was meh. ( )

nonfiction humor/memoirs (blogger). I only read the first 2-3 chapters, but didn't find it that funny. Not everyone can relate to Alida, but I'm sure some people will find it right up their alley, and hilariously so. ( )

I really wanted to like this book, but I've read more engaging pieces on thoughtcatalog. ( )

Mostly I found this woman incredibly annoying. The book was entertaining enough, and I usually like this type of humor. Perhaps this is indicative of my own age in that I don't find 20-somethings' writings very amusing...or perhaps I'm still too close to that stage to see the humor. ( )

Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse is the second novel I’ve read by Nugent. Her other novel You Don’t Have to Like Me focuses on feminism, whereas this book focuses on life after college and navigating your twenties. Since I’m the age range this book is directed to, I decided to pick it up and found I could relate to Nugent’s words and so will many other readers.

In th book, Alida shares snippets from her life and how she struggled with moving back home after college and working hard to move to a new city, on top of finding her “true passion” in her life. I felt that most readers will see themselves in these incidences because feeling stuck and navigating your life happens at any age.

She accurately describes the feeling of adulthood kicking in right after graduating college and how hard it is to block out FOMO (fear of missing out) from social media. It’s sometimes hard to ignore when you see everyone doing exciting things and getting out there in the world, while you’re “left behind” in a sense. However, on the other hand, it is often said that people show you want they want you to see on social media so in reality they could be struggling too,

Alida’s tone/voice in this novel is candid and funny. She makes her audience laugh out loud while also being clear enough to get her points across (without being too wordy either). Some of the topics in the book include: the tedious and painful process of filling out CV/resumes, budgeting (spending money on needed things not junk), relationships, and moving into your own place. Another issue that she discusses is that the heavyweight that you carry emotionally and physically as a “young adult”.

The twenties are a crazy time in one’s life. Soon as you graduate you’re thrown into the real world. Some days are good and others are horrible, but we have to push through them. Alida’s experience makes the reader feel that you’re not alone and reminds her audience that self-care is very important. Her overall message is to not get lost in the chaos and take life one day at a time. ( )
