“Not That Kind of Girl”….are you?

Last night, I finally finished Lena Dunham’s book “Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s ‘Learned'”.  It’s by far my favorite book of the year.

I really connected to this book.  Lena did a wonderful job of describing what it was like growing up in a creative environment, boy struggles (as a teenager and in your 20s), and made me feel like there was someone out there that actually got what I was going through.  I also loved how she described her struggles with the entertainment business and being taken seriously as a young woman.  It’s something I struggle with all the time, and it was re-assuring that a badass like Lena Dunham has gone through it too.

Your young 20s are such a weird phase in life.  I’m not an adult, but I’m no longer a kid.  This book made me feel okay about all the stupid stuff I’ve done and the bad decisions I’ve made.  Lena is a beautiful writer and I can’t wait for her to publish another book.  In the meantime, I will patiently wait for the next season of Girls to start.

If you haven’t read this book yet, pick it up from your local bookstore.  Like, now.  Seriously.

Leave a comment below and tell me:  Have you read Lena’s book yet?  What did you think about it?
