5 Must-Read Books for Women in Their 20s

Making your way through your twenties sure is a lot like exploring uncharted land.

If adulting came with a guide, it would be made up of these books.

Oh, adulting… How hard can it be? Quite tricky, apparently. 

Making your way through your twenties sure is a lot like exploring uncharted land—you feel lost but you also discover fascinating things along your journey. Every passing day, you try your best to be the responsible adult that society expects you to be under zero supervision because you’re all grown up and—well—everything about your life is up to you now. *shudders*

If that thought scares you, we totally feel you! But stop worrying too much! After all, you’re not alone in this. There are millions of other girls out there in your exact same position right now, thinking about what life has in store for them. And trust us when we say that all of you are in for happy surprises every now and then.
