7 best books to read in your 20s
How To Be A Woman by Caitlin Moran
There has never been a better moment to be a woman, according to author and comedian Caitlin Moran’s book How To Be A Woman. However, she has some inquiries for which she is looking for solutions, such as:
- Why are we supposed to get Brazilians?
- Should you get Botox?
- Do men secretly hate us?
- What should you call your vagina?
- Why does your bra hurt?
- And why does everyone ask you when you’re going to have a baby?
How To Be A Woman is a searingly honest depiction of being a woman in the current world that is equal parts memoir and diatribe. Its ideas are even more applicable today because it helped millions of Gen X and millennial women get through their 20s and beyond.
A Lonely Girl Is A Dangerous Thing by Jessie Tu
Former child prodigy Jena Lin now uses sex to fill the vacuum that stardom has left behind.
Rehearsals, drunken outings with new acquaintances, and a new romance with an older man occupy her days.
Jena believes her dream life is about to begin when she receives an internship with the New York Philharmonic. But if Trump wins, both Jena and New York undergo irreversible transformation.
Ingenious and bitingly humorous, A Lonely Girl Is A Dangerous Thing explores feminine desire and the peril of wanting too much and never having it.
Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid
Kiley Reid’s first book, Such a Fun Age, is about race, privilege, and the falsehoods we tell ourselves.
It centers on Alix Chamberlain, a wealthy white lifestyle blogger and the mother of Briar, 2 years old. Additionally, Alix employs Emira Tucker, a young Black babysitter.
Emira is embarrassed when she gets charged with abducting Briar at an upscale store one night. Alix is then inspired to put things right.
But the two women are unaware of a connection between them that could destroy them both.
It deserves one of the best books to read in your 20s.
Normal People by Sally Rooney
Connell and Marianne play the relationship off at school. She is isolated, self-assured, and very private in contrast to him who is popular, well-adjusted, and the star of the school soccer team.
However, when their paths do intersect, they instantly fall in love. They make an effort to hide their relationship, but a year later, when they are both students at Trinity College in Dublin, Marianne has gotten comfortable in a new social environment while Connell observes from the sidelines, awkward and unsure.
Two wounded individuals continue to harm each other as they circle each other for years.
The kind of relationships that many people find themselves in during their 20s are reflected in the book Normal People. The connections that unite us, separate us, and ultimately define who we are.
Insatiable by Daisy Buchanan
Violet, who is in her twenties, has lost touch with her best friend and is stuck in a dead-end job. She is also broke and heartbroken.
At a party, she later runs into Lottie, a woman who resembles the kind of woman Violet aspires to be when she grows up. Violet accepts Lottie’s offer to work for her new firm, but she soon finds herself immersed in Simon and Lottie’s world.
Daisy Buchanan’s debut book was called “funny” and “filthy” by two of my favorite authors, and look, they were both accurate.
Insatiable, though, is more than that. It is about a woman coming to terms with her own body, beginning to see her own value, and working things out. It is about being alone in your twenties and choosing the untrodden path. A sexual coming-of-age tale, it is full with humorous, belly-laugh inducing insights.
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
Due to Cheryl Strayed’s 2012 autobiography Wild, millions of women have abandoned conventional wisdom and encountered themselves in unexpected situations.
Cheryl, then 22, thought she had lost everything and was doomed to failure. Her mother had passed away, her relatives had split up, and her own marriage was in trouble.
She made the decision to trek the Pacific Trail alone four years later, from the Mojave Desert via California and Oregon to Washington State, with no prior experience or instruction and only her blind will as her guide.
Wild describes her trip, the challenges she encountered, and how the experience finally helped her heal.
Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton
Dolly Alderton rose to prominence as one of the most recognizable millennials in the globe in a matter of years.
Many millennial women who were trying to find out how to not be shut out found a voice in her writings and podcast, The High Low.
In her autobiography, What I Know About Love, she looks back on her adolescence and twenties and the relationships, heartbreaks, and failures that shaped them.
It’s similar to looking back on your own 20s through the glossy pages of a masterfully written memoir.
Above are 7 best books to read in your 20s for women. There will be experiences, mistakes, ups and downs with a new threshold of time to enter life. I hope these books can help you understand, accept yourself, learn how to love and enhance your feminism in this day and age.
