relationship etc etc I quite liked the writing about female friendship at the end, and that started to make me try and rethink my impressions, as I think a focus on the love of female friendships is important and interesting But I think my problem is that this isn t what it actually was rather it was a focus on her, and she happened to have female friends as her most lasting connection, which felt very different and it was all a bit look at me, I m such a great friend I guess my main problem was that I found her very narcissistic and unlikeable The tone and writing reminded me a lot of Caitlin Moran who I also find irritating and someone who states the obvious but thinks she s being really incisive Ladies and gentlemen, I have met my new personal hero I started reading this book and immediately felt like I was cushioned perfectly in cotton wool and marshmallows, covered in fluffy blankets with cherubs singing to me and playing with my hair.In other words this is genuinely one of the most lovely and funny and heartwarming memoirs I ve read in my rather short life so far I LOVE itthan I could possibly say I laughed out loud even on the tube which I find daunting and cried on

this be something I read every year YES AND WHAT OF IT 2.5 rounded downI m on the fence with this one it was light and very readable even while discussing some heavier topics and I enjoyed the early 00s nostalgia trip for a bit yes, we all remember MSN messenger , but overall this felt bloated, self indulgent and could have been 100 pages shorter I wasn t a fan of the inclusion of the recipes one was for scrambled egg or fictional satirical emails either.I ve enjoyed Dolly s writing in The Sunday Times magazine in the past, but this coll 2.5 rounded downI m on the fence with this one it was

Times magazine in the past, but this collection of hilarious anecdotes of her making poor choices in men and doing drugs getting drunk while seemingly not learning much left me feeling frustrated And the conclusion that female friendships are the important thing overall I didn t buy it all of the stories shared throughout the rest of the book didn t support this conclusion Only Dolly s friend Farly comes out of this book looking good Reading about other people being hungover and self absorbed throughout their 20s while not doing much else doesn t make for a fun read, at least for me, anyway I don t know why so many people in their early 30s are writing memoirs these days collections of anecdotes that were hilarious for you at the time aren t bringing anything new or insightful to the table for the rest of us Loooooved it I m a bit embarassed to admit that I hardly knew who Dolly Adlerton was before reading this book, but after finishing Everything I Know About Love, I m now a massive fan Dolly took me on a journey through love, friendship, heartache and anxiety that was relatable, honest and funny Filled with disastrous dates, wild nights out but also moving stories about
