How to be a Grown Up | Daisy Buchanan | Review

Do you ever feel like you haven't quite figured out this grown up thing yet? I definitely do. In fact, I even wrote a whole post about being an almost grown up a few years ago (which you can find here, if you are interested) and most of the things I said then are still very much true. Sometimes it feels like everyone else took an exam on adulting and I'm just winging it. 

Luckily for me, Daisy Buchanan clocked on to this culture of improvisation and wrote a whole book all about facing the real world. How to be a Grown Up is for the twenty-somethings who haven't quite figure things out yet. With chapters on money, style, love and plenty of other topics, this book is full of plenty of comforting, supportive and down-right hilarious advice which comes from Daisy's own experiences. The fact that the chapters are rooted in her own life make How to be a Grown Up feel like you are sat with an old (and incredibly wise) friend with a cup of coffee, trying to put the world to rights.

The fact that Daisy made these mistakes and came out of the other side means that this book is not at all preachy but truly and utterly reassuring. I finished reading this book feeling like I had just been wrapped up in a giant hug and immediately wanting to pass my copy of How to be a Grown Up on to all of my friends. It's the book you need if you ever feel like you haven't quite figured something out. 

A word of warning however: this book is hilarious and should be read by everyone BUT some of these chapters aren't family friendly. Save this one for your 20 -something friends. They'll love it.
