I often receive messages like this in the background, "What Books Every Woman Should Read in Her 20s?" "What book should college students read?" "What book should girls read?", Because I really don’t know, on the other hand, I think it’s not a problem.

If I have to answer, the best answer is: read the book you are interested in. Whether it is a college student, whether it is 20 years old or a girl, it cannot be simply abstracted into a concept. It must be specific to each person and his actual needs. This question is meaningful. It's not that at a certain age, with a certain identity, certain must-read books appear. People are different. Everyone has different goals, interests, and tastes, and there has never been a unified standard answer.

But at this point, everything seems to be blocked. Others ask this question because they really want to read, but they have no clue and straightforward rejection. Although it is correct, it is easy to obliterate other people's interests.

So, let's try to talk about What book should I read in my 20s? 
books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s
First of all, whether you are a college student, high school student, housewife, or company white-collar worker, the first consideration in choosing a book should be your goal. College students have different majors, such as finance, management, journalism, and literature. Each field has different professional books. If your goal is clear and you want to improve in your major, it is very simple. You need to find it is not me. It's your teacher or someone who is great in this profession, let them help you choose some books that are worth reading. Of course, the current Internet is so developed, there are already many experience posts scattered on the Internet, find them, and then read them.

At the same time, college students don’t necessarily only need to read professional books. Maybe you are a literary lover and want to read some first-class works; maybe you are a science fiction fan and want to find more science fiction novels worth reading; maybe you are an entrepreneurial maniac. You want to learn from the experience of your predecessors; maybe you are suddenly interested in the history of your hometown and want a deep and systematic understanding... Again, under the common identity of "college students", each is completely different. A person who clarifies your goals will naturally have a direction for reading.

Secondly, don't be at a party. It is very irresponsible to just throw out "What book should I read?". What book you should read is a question that you should think about by yourself. All others can do is to give some suggestions. Give up independent thinking and turn to other people’s arrangements. After all, you don’t really want to read books. You may just ask casually so that you have the psychological hint that you have tried to change. As for whether the result is suitable or not, Does not value it.

If you do already have some goals and directions, then the question may be more specific. You will ask, for example, "Are there any good books in the field of professional women?" "The more specific the information you provide, the better the people who are asked will be able to answer.

Then, remember that reading does not bring immediate results. From the word "the" in the question, it can be seen that the person who starts to ask has expectations that reading can bring about changes, heal a broken relationship, become knowledgeable, become a professional or incarnate a charming woman, etc., behind the problem, Is actually a heart to change oneself. This is certainly not wrong, but reading may be misunderstood. This action itself does not have the ability to magically change a person. Its power is weak and it takes a long time to accumulate. What is often overlooked is that the application after reading, flexible thinking, and mental abilities are more important.

Finally, read and read are not the same. Everyone's talent, ability to absorb, and the degree of matching between his own experience and the book are not consistent. The so-called one thousand readers have one thousand Hamlet. In addition, the degree of hard work on a book is different. Even if some people have read it, some people have studied it a hundred times, and the effect will naturally be different.

Finally, please develop the habit of reading. Once the habit is formed, which book to read is no longer a problem. You will naturally find that there are more and more books to read and more and more things to understand. At that time, the problem becomes, so Many books, how can time be enough? this is another topic, so I won't expand it here.

I hope it will be helpful to friends who ask questions What kind of books are suitable for a 20-year-old woman?.

Here I will recommend 16 Books Every Woman Should Read in Her 20s.


Good Books For Women In Their 20s



    1. Bad Behavior


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: Bad Behavior: Stories by Mary Gaitskill

    There are 9 stories in this novel. It is rare to see foreign novels with such a plot and graphic sense. I really think the author's skill is good. In such a short text chapter, it is very powerful to be able to write such a wonderful story. Most of these stories are dark, like the kind of shameless cheat sheet, written in a hurry, crumpled into a ball, and then let me pick it up in an inexplicable afternoon, unfold it in the sun and just read it like this, after reading it. 

    Eyes are tingling and want to shed tears. So many fragile souls rushed out together, unable to withstand it, and only felt that the world was spinning, endless sorrow. In this compassion, I was a little familiar, and some characters actually had a cordial shadow on them. This was probably the case, and I felt sad. 

    A trade paperback reissue of National Book Award finalist Mary Gaitskill's debut collection, Bad Behavior--powerful stories about dislocation, longing, and desire which depict a disenchanted and rebellious urban fringe generation that is searching for human connection.

    -Now a classic: Bad Behavior made critical waves when it was first published, heralding Gaitskill's arrival on the literary scene and her establishment as one of the sharpest, erotically charged, and audaciously funny writing talents of contemporary literature. 

    Michiko Kakutani of The New York Times called it "Pinteresque," saying, "Ms. Gaitskill writes with such authority, such radar-perfect detail, that she is able to make even the most extreme situations seem real... her reportorial candor, uncompromised by sentimentality or voyeuristic charm...underscores the strength of her debut."


    2. The Edible Woman 


    Marian is determined to be ordinary. She lays her head gently on the shoulder of her serious fiancé and quietly awaits marriage. But she didn't count on an inner rebellion that would rock her stable routine and her digestion. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach... The Edible Woman is a funny, engaging novel about emotional cannibalism, men and women, and the desire to be consumed.

    It was Atwood's first novel, published in 1969, and now it seems full of sense of the times. Not your favorite Atwood, but she just has the charm to entice you to read on. I don’t like the ending very much, and she is so cruel to the characters in the pen. I remember her parents seem to be faculty too.

    The ending is simply an Atwood-style Jane Austen-style happy ending. But Marian's final re-understanding of Ainsley is very interesting: She was almost morally earnest as the lady down below. One is a young woman who has received a college education and adores femininity, and the other is a conservative old lady who can't even accept women's drinking. 

    But Marian finds that there is no difference between the two, which is too ironic. This novel was conceived by Atwood at the age of 23 and written at the age of 24. She is really a genius.


    3. To the Lighthouse 


    The so-called stream of consciousness is just a way to enter the story, providing a framework and implementing it into the content, which is still very real. But here at Woolf, the stream of consciousness is the text itself, the whole content! Kind of scary.

    If you are not familiar with Woolf's style, reading this book is like,-not hitting the wall-but hitting the cotton, that kind of gentle whispering, lingering tone. Especially when there are so many people who have just appeared on the stage, I don’t know who the children of Ramsays are and who their guests are. When Mrs. Ramsay is alone, (the light from the beacon shines through her mind), she really calms down and gradually gets better. . 

    By the time of the dinner, I was already very familiar with this style. Looking at her pen controlled by the author, it seemed that there was a bird as a sign, flying from the head of the guest to the head of the other person. Beyond demeanor.

    I especially like the middle part, time passes, which is pure and generous. It is in contrast with the delicate, sticky, and sticky pages of the previous more than 100 pages. It can be read as good prose.

    Woolf's English is really beautiful and surprisingly easy to read. It's like white boating. Maybe the surrounding scenery may not be so clear, but it feels wonderful, which is why I can keep reading. I remembered that in the movie "The Moment", Julian Moore ran to the hotel with Ben Woolf's book, planning to commit suicide after reading it. ——I think this is not impossible, in a situation similar to being hypnotized by words.

    But when I think of it, even though I haven't read Woolf, her disciples and grandchildren have read a lot, such as Michael Cunningham. Now when I think about it, hey, his tone shouldn't be too similar to Ms. Wu! Janet Winterson didn't look like he had studied. Needless to say the hours, even Alice in the early a home at the end of the world seems to be a deformation of Mrs. Ramsay or Mrs. Dalloway.

    The thoughtful woman, melancholy and hesitant, feels like an ice-carved knife.


    4. White Teeth: A Novel


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: White Teeth: A Novel by Zadie Smith

    Sometimes when I look at the photo album, I find that I have completely forgotten the image of myself in the photo album many years ago, and I conclude that it has changed too much. When I first met "White Teeth", I didn't think I would be interested in this kind of book before. I bought it purely by chance. When I went home and read it carefully, I realized the smell.

      The whole book reveals a kind of British culture. He is not writing about British aristocrats, nor is it purely poor life. But by coincidence, two of the three families are filled with different skin colors, religions, and beliefs, while the other family resolutely implements the unique "Schalfinism" of its own family in terms of lifestyle and behavior. 

    It is said that the development of each character is stable, but in the end, you just can't see their original shadows. Looking back at their appearance when they appeared on the scene, it is like looking at the previous photo album to find everyone's missing personality.

      As stated in the book, before telling an ancient story, one by one, one by one, put back into the belly like a matryoshka. Conversely think, as long as one link goes wrong, everything is different again. The intricacies of religion, ethics, science, and emotions are peeled off in layers and placed in front of your eyes in the book and kneaded together to become this novel. 

    Various religious beliefs lived together in that era, fighting for their own status. Each religion also wanted to occupy other people's minds and influence other people's cultures. Generations of people quarreled desperately over the generation gap, and in order to prove that they were right, various emotions were intertwined to form one soul after another. There are several very different ways of life in a family.

      The world in the book is really dazzling. You can experience the different cultures in different periods from the pages of the book.


    5. The Golden Notebook 


    Doris Lessing's Nobel Prize-winning work in literature. It is said that when Doris Lessing won the Nobel Prize in 2007, it surprised the world.

    It is a book that wins by structure. In terms of the multiple propositions the author wants to express, this structure is necessary and ingenious. (Coincidentally, the last Julio Cortazar's "Hopscotch" has a unique structure.) This structural innovation provides a new way of expression for the writing of novels, and even the structure itself can be changed.

    Reading a seven-hundred-page novel is now more difficult for me than reading the same thick philosophy book. Perhaps it is because the pleasure of the novel is more secretive, and a large number of brilliant chapters are hidden in the plain narrative. 

    But Lessing’s novel really taught me something new, allowing me to observe women and the relationship between men and women from the other side. And when I put myself on the opposite side of the author to start a dialogue, everything seemed to come alive, so this book has become a book that can be re-read.

    The golden notebooks are like a mirror of the world. They tell mediocre writers: You haven't worked hard enough.

    But the content is not read through. The black notes (colonial experience) and the red notes (politics) are quite straightforward. On the contrary, the yellow notes (love) and blue notes (spirit) cannot be understood and cannot produce sympathy. 

    Although I didn't read it through, I can still clearly feel the division of the protagonist, and I can feel the interaction of the four colored notes on the theme of "splitting". Only in a specific time and environment, combined with a specific culture, can there be such a division; and I am equivalent to being in another world.


    6. Nightwood 


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: Nightwood by Djuna Barnes

    Nightwood was rated as one of the hardest novels to read in the 20th century. Stream of consciousness, large monologues, sequences of meanings divided by phrases or fragments, and Barnes’s personal language style all make reading difficult. 

    When the novel was published, Eliot, who was then editor of Faber&Faber, highly praised the novel and wrote the introduction part. There are 8 chapters in the novel. The first 4 chapters mainly introduce 5 main characters: Robin, Felix, Nora, Jenny, Doctor O'Connor; the middle three chapters are Doctor's large monologues; in the short last chapter, Robin somehow returns In the woods outside Nora's residence, barking with Nora's dog and lying on the woods. 

    Robin can be said to be a creature between humanity and animality. It is difficult for us to regard her as a human being. And what Robin wants to seek from the other three characters is "the survival of real human beings" and the identity of people (?). In Joseph Frank's spatial form article, he pointed out that the last chapter makes the reader understand that the previous feeling points to the only possible ending.


    7. Delta of Venus 


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: Delta of Venus by Anais Nin

    In Delta of Venus Anais Nin penned a lush, magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of desires and exceptional of talents. 

    Among these provocative stories, a Hungarian adventurer seduces wealthy women then vanishes with their money; a veiled woman selects strangers from a chic restaurant for private trysts, and a Parisian hatmaker named Mathilde leaves her husband for the opium dens of Peru. Delta of Venus is an extraordinarily rich and exotic collection from the master of erotic writing.

    The book describes many independent and strong female characters. Although they are prostitutes, they are brave and powerful and pursue the sex and love they want. The men in the book are all portrayed as sick, with sick minds and bodies. Anais has a big brain. After reading this book, many readers may also want to try the fragments described in the book.

    Bataille said that making love is different from bestiality because we arrogantly overstep ourselves from a human standpoint and return to bestiality. Eros is eros, precisely because it rejects the simple stimulation of the senses; precisely because it infuses our poetry, fantasy and joy, anger, sorrow, and joy. 


    8. Self-Help 


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: Self-Help by Lorrie Moore

    When I started reading this book, I was also reading Girls. I felt that Lorrie's short story reminded me of Hannah. I tried hard to experience it for the sake of writing. 

    The expression is cunning and affectionate. Over the years, I have been watered by a lot of hypocritical ways, so I can appreciate it, but I vaguely hope that someone will convey it in a more natural way.

    In these tales of loss and pleasure, lovers and family, a woman learn to conduct an affair, a child of divorce dances with her mother, and a woman with a terminal illness contemplates her exit. Filled with the sharp humor, emotional acuity, and joyful language Moore has become famous for, these nine glittering tales marked the introduction of an extravagantly gifted writer.


    9. The Portable Dorothy Parker 


    I was watching it on December 23rd, 2013. It took two and a half years to finish reading, which is a broken personal reading record.

    I was listening to The Best American Short Stories Of The Century. One of them was Here We Are written by Dorothy Parker in 1931, and John Updike’s electronic version of the catalog, which was relatively tired after reading through it, could not be used, so I found this Dorothy Parker Complete Stories, which is only 20. inside minutes of advancement of women thinking Dorothy Parker pen sharp small themes can not imagine the next moment will take you to where thought leadership at home. . . 

    Fortunately, it's okay, but it's a bit similar. Maybe every man who can persist after getting married has endured a fine test like a small pinpoint. It is no longer too unbearable, but it is generally longer and lasts for a long time. 

    The love for children in the first half of the 20th century mainly occurred in the middle class of New York. One story after another published in vogue and Vanity Fair satirizes the men and women in love and after losing love. Seeing more, there is a kind of living in New York in 1918 where a telephone operator needed an operator. The half is about the author’s interviews and letters.


    10. The Liars' Club: A Memoir 


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: The Liars' Club: A Memoir by Mary Karr 

    Mary Karr described her childhood as full of pain, fear, and uncertainty in a very witty tone. The book talks about her alcoholic and mentally ill mother; her silent father who endures her; her messy and disorderly family life and the experience of being raped. Her childhood took place in a backward industrial area in Texas. 

    With vivid and loving brushstrokes, she depicted the American South in the 1950s and 1960s: hunting and eating game, playing in the wild, religiously fanatical neighbors, father's always greasy clothes from factories, and mothers who are unaccounted for...

    This book may be the autobiography of the most painful childhood in the world. There are mental illnesses, ostracism, family murder, the unspeakable fear of cubs, and the ability to show that children can feel happy even in pain.

    Mary Karr is known as the predecessor of David Foster Wallace. And I think David Foster Wallace borrowed and even copied many elements of her work in his writing. Looking at the biography of David Foster Wallace, I can also feel that the relationship between the two people may not only admire and admire but also have deep jealousy. 

    Mary Karr's words, in my opinion, are more natural than David's blunt, awkward and deep humor. You may feel that David is struggling with this humor, but Mary Karr is easy to come by. 

    I think her ability is first because she is a female and has a natural sympathy --- she is not as flustered and unconfident as David about loving and conveying emotions; it is because her life is true. Too ridiculous, the ridiculous pain and the love of life produced a humorous contrast. She can put this absurdity on paper at will.


    11. You Can't Keep a Good Woman Down 


    Advancing Luna's story is really well written. In an era when a large number of black men were killed under the guise of "raping white women", Alice Walker wrote about the friendship between black girls and white girls in the first person because the white girls told the black girls She was raped by a black man, 

    but because of the background of lynching, she couldn't make or don't want to make a statement, because she knew that a white woman had too much power in accusations against blacks. After that, the black girl suffered a great shock, and the relationship between the two gradually became awkward and weakened.

    A natural evolution from the earlier, much-acclaimed collection In Love and Trouble, these fourteen provocative and often humorous stories show women oppressed but not defeated. These are hopeful stories about love, lust, fame, and cultural thievery, the delight of new lovers, and the rediscovery of old friends affirmed even across self-imposed color lines.


    12. Americanah 


    This book is roughly divided into four stages. The first stage is when Ifemelu was in high school, the second stage is when she first arrived in the United States, the third stage is when she slowly settles down in the American society, and the last stage is When she chose to return to Nigeria.

    Objectively speaking, each stage has its own characteristics, but subjectively speaking, my personal favorite is the second stage, that is, she came to the United States alone, from the beginning of the yearning for infinite possibilities to the deep depression. 

    Struggling in reality, she compromised in a moment in the end. I think that day should stay with her for the rest of my life, the strange tennis coach and the disgusting self-disgust that made her feel sick. But at that moment she did compromise, just like thousands of desperate people in real life.

    One of mine especially likes the story at this stage because of the authenticity. Unlike her in the third stage, she is more like a rebel in adolescence. She uses a sharp attitude to find all race-related issues in life. contradiction. She looks for contradictions in whites, contradictions in her black American boyfriends, and contradictions in immigrants who have failed to get rid of the Nigerian background. 

    These contradictions exist, either true or false, but from a certain perspective, I think it is also a kind of prejudice from her, a level of thinking that can never surpass race. It was more like she reminded her own ethnicity all the time, rather than those white people, his boyfriends, or Nigerian immigrants in the hair salon.

    In any case, the angle of this book is interesting and attractive, especially for people who have similar experiences like me. Ifemelu in the book has a slightly embarrassing identity. With a word I summarized, it can be called 1.5-generation immigrants.

    Such a generation lives in the gap between mainstream society and a generation of immigrants. They may have grown up in a foreign country, or they may have immigrated abroad with their parents around the age of ten, but most of them have very traditional family backgrounds and have experienced traditional family education. This growth process prevents them from being able to fully integrate into the mainstream local population, and they cannot integrate with so-called overseas students and a generation of immigrants.

    They enjoy this unique advantage-they can speak two or more languages and are fluent in both cultures. At the same time, they also have to bear the burdens brought about by these advantages-their parents have higher than average expectations and requirements of them, as well as suppression from traditional culture.

    In such an awkward position where they can advance and retreat but cannot truly belong to a group, the 1.5 generations of immigrants formed their own group. However, in this awkward group, I am concerned about myself and the future position of this group in society. It also feels unpredictable.

    So when faced with some of Ifemelu's thoughts in the book, I could also have a deep smile. This may be the main reason why this book touched me.


    13. Everything I Never Told You 


    At the beginning of the story, she threw suspense: "Lydia is dead, but they don't know yet." With Lydia's death, she shed her cocoon and uncovered the United States in the 1970s, a combination of China and the United States. The gradual imbalance in the family.

    Lydia's father is Chinese. He wants to integrate into mainstream American society all his life, hoping to become a popular person, an ordinary person who will not be conspicuous; Lydia's mother is American, and she was burdened by her when she was young. Expecting to strive for the highest level, hoping to achieve success in the patriarchal society at that time, kept secretly telling myself that I would never become a housewife like my mother. 

    In this family with a distinctive background, Lydia has an older brother and a younger sister, but because of the three siblings, only she has inherited the blue eyes of her mother, and she has received the most expectations and love from her parents. These expectations and love gradually became a burden on her shoulders, which eventually led to her death.

    Simply narrating the story outline is difficult to tell what touches people's hearts. This story has a suspenseful imprint and then unfolds calmly like flowing water. She arranges the encounters and feelings of the two generations in the family from the perspective of each character in a patchwork manner, the climax of the story It is not ups and downs, but in the process of reading, it can make me gradually resonate with the mood of each character. 

    The feelings of these characters become my feelings, falling like ink stains, slowly fainting, and then inadvertently Pieced together into the entire painting. At the end of the story, their emotions have already merged with mine, and the melancholy and gentle feelings in my heart are hard to distinguish from each other.
        
    The things that move people's hearts most often do not distinguish national boundaries or languages. Some people may say that the core of "Silent Confession" is family, female, Chinese, or the hesitation and loss of young people growing up. However, under these themes, human nature is its true core. 

    How will the human nature of ordinary people change when they encounter discrimination, misunderstanding, expectations, and love in the environment of ordinary people, in a world without catastrophes and crises? When facing an impermanent or unfortunate future, how should ordinary people deal with themselves, and how can they not be overwhelmed by dark emotions?
        
    NG is very good at shaping characters, and she has deep sympathy and compassion for every character in her writing. These little people have no masked good and evil, but only the weakness, anger, fear, and frustration that you and I have all experienced or at least felt. 

    She didn't let Lydia die deliberately, nor did she let other characters—every member of Lydia's family—work hard to live deliberately. At the end of the story, they still carry the mystery of Lydia's death and will carry this heavy mystery all their lives, trying to reconcile with each other, and continue to live with each other's support.
        
    This kind of life that is not lucky, and the fate of struggling not to sink, may well belong to each of us.


    14. The Goldfinch: A Novel 


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: The Goldfinch: A Novel by Donna Tartt

    I finally finished reading the "Goldfinch" with more than 600 pages, nearly 700 pages. The moment I closed the book, the first feeling was a full sense of accomplishment, and the second feeling was to recollect the content of the book.

    I have become less and less convinced of the so-called recommendations and girdles, both of which are extremely cocky. This is what Donna said in this book: a book that people can't put down. But I put it down countless times.

    Sister Donna, is it necessary to spend so many pages to tell such a story? You must know that paper will destroy tropical rainforests. Just started. I thought it was a suspense novel. After reading it for a long time, I found out what it said? It is difficult to bring in the opening chapter. The protagonist talks about his mother, but it is not particularly exciting, and then talks about the people around him. Finally, he and his mother went to the art exhibition and met a bunch of fathers and daughters who made the protagonist find it strange.

    Just when you were slowly gnawing down, it suddenly exploded, and it exploded while you were still ready! Then the plot began to speed up, but it was still not very fast. The old man inexplicably said a bunch of inexplicable things to the protagonist, and then gave the ring to the protagonist. Is this Gandalf giving Frodo any magical thing?

    Obviously not, the protagonist took this ring, neither unlocked any underground secret library nor joined any secret society to become a white dragon envoy. The mission of this ring is that the protagonist knows the friends of the deceased, and guides the growth of the protagonist, and then there is no such thing.

    The old man inexplicably asked the protagonist to take the goldfinch out of the museum, and I couldn't understand the purpose of this after reading the entire book.

    The whole book is a growth novel, but Sister Donna has to lean on the suspense. It is true that because of the existence of the painting, a sense of suspense has been added. She will not give up when reading, just want to know the fate of this painting and the protagonist. What's the intersection.


    15. Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay 


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay

    I am self-proclaimed as a feminist liberationist-I have been in the dusty work, and I have only thought about my body. Under the premise that this society is not perfect, I am gradually discovering that as long as I have contact with people, I have to face some ideas that I assume do not exist. 

    For example, I have never shaved armpit hair before, because I think it is unnecessary and a manifestation of discrimination against women-have boys ever felt ashamed of armpit hair? But when I was in the ballet class, one of the three hands and the other people's armpits was clean. I suffered a lot of attention from my classmates for nothing. 

    Fortunately, the teachers I met were very gentle and sweet, and they guided and praised me meticulously. Thinking that this behavior might also cause discomfort to my admiring teachers, I still shaved off my armpit hair before a dance class.

    In fact, such behaviors and struggles also exist in the lives of many, many contemporary women. I believe that as long as you are confident, you can do it, but the guys I like say that my skin texture is not good; I believe that professional skills are the focus, but I see customers What to do when I feel pressure to put on makeup to reflect the so-called "respect".

    I don't have that much entanglement in my heart, but at this moment when I think of one day when I explain to others what this book is written, I feel that this book is more powerful. 

    After all, not everyone can easily get that kind of internal and external connection through some arguments, and they should not feel even a bit of pain and confusion because of the difference between what should be and what is true. If Anything-- It should be pride.

    I personally have a very single, narrow, and personal love for books. This book obviously does not meet my personal preferences. But in the final analysis, the book is not just a good argument for the essence-this book is a kind of spiritual companionship, sharing with any confused and tangled girl he has hesitated, and she has hesitated. 

    The author seemed to step out of the pen and paper to embrace the reader's confusion, and told them, "It's okay, it's fine, and it's gonna be alright."


    16. Bossypants 


    books-every-woman-should-read-in-her-20s

    Book Review: Bossypants by Tina Fey

    It’s hard to imagine that Tina Fey-former Chicago Second City actor, screenwriter, actor, and 30 Rock screenwriter and producer on the previous Saturday night, could not find a job for a long time after graduating from college, and finally went to Chicago YMCA (the YMCA of Evanston, a small suburb to the north, is similar to a multifunctional youth hostel, except that people live there are not necessarily youth) as a receptionist.

    While working as a receptionist, Tina went to Second City to participate in an improvisation course, and eventually joined her troupe for a tour.

    This is a not-so-inspiring inspirational story, because the protagonist of the story, Tina, did not feel sorry for herself because she was not so outstanding, even if she was "stolen" by her boyfriend by a beautiful blonde chick when she was a teenager, even if she When I work at YMCA, I need to arrive at work at five o’clock every morning and face tons of unreasonable people and things. 

    Even when she graduated from college, she still remained a virgin and got a pap smear (pap smear) by mistake. You need to put a huge plastic tube into your vagina.
