Book Review: Grace's Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-up by Grace Helbig

ISBN: 1476788006
Published: October 21st, 2014
Publisher: Touchstone
Read from October 5th to 8th, 2015
Synopsis from Goodreads:
"One of the sharpest, funniest voices on YouTube" (Forbes), comedian Grace Helbig offers an irreverent and illustrated guide to life for anyone faced with the challenge of growing up.
Face it—being a young adult in the digital era is one of the hardest things to be. Well, maybe there are harder things in life…but being an adult is difficult! So Grace Helbig has written a guide that’s perfect for anyone who is faced with the daunting task of becoming an adult.
Infused with her trademark saucy, sweet, and funny voice, Grace’s Guide is a tongue-in-cheek handbook for millennials, encompassing everything a young or new (or regular or old) adult needs to know, from surviving a breakup to recovering from a hangover. Beautifully illustrated and full-color, Grace’s Guide features interactive elements and exclusive stories from Grace’s own misadventures—like losing her virginity solely because her date took her to a Macaroni Grill—and many other hilarious lessons she learned the hard way.
Amusing and unexpectedly educational, this refreshing and colorful guide proves that becoming an adult doesn’t necessarily mean you have to grow up.


I've been watching Grace's videos for a while, and I'd probably consider her one of my favorite Youtubers. I knew that if her book reflected her videos at all, then it would be great. Luckily, this book did that. There were so many times where her voice came through so clearly that I could imagine her saying the exact same thing in a video.\

I'm right at the age that a lot of Grace's advice seems to be targeted to as well, so that made it even more applicable to my life. I especially appreciated the section of the book about dealing with anxiety because I relate to Grace so much in that respect, and so much of it is genuinely good advice even though it's delivered in a funny way.

If you enjoy Grace's videos, I would recommend checking this book out as well.
