Twenty-Something Reading List

Adulting: How to Become a Grownup in 468 Easy(ish) Steps by Kelly Williams Brown– a hilarious list of tips for doing things the grownup way. Covers everything from cooking and cleaning to buying furniture and dressing for work. My #1  book recommendation for any twenty-something.

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari– yes, written by Tom Haverford himself. He teamed up with real sociologists and conducted real studies on modern romance, and they became a really funny thought provoking piece about how romance has transformed with technology.

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero– a how-to guide for boosting your confidence. Has an accompanying book about being a badass at making money, which is equally thought-provoking.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson–  Manson, a successful blogger (take notes!) believes that life is not about turning lemons into lemonade, but learning how to stomach lemons better. That’s what you’ll learn how to do in his book! It hates on our generation a bit, but the takeaway message is good and important.

UnF*ck Yourself by Gary John Bishop– As my friend Jo says in her guest post, this is the best expletive-filled self-help book out there. It’s a great fit for anyone who wants to get out of a rut, which is very likely to happen after a big change like graduating from college or moving back home.

Presence by Amy Cuddy– this is a great book for twenty-something people just entering the workforce, especially if you’re introverted. There are lots of practical exercises for making yourself look and feel more confident at work. Much of it is based on body language.
