Ali Pantony - Almost Adults
I can't remember where I first heard about this Almost Adults by Ali Pantony but I must have noticed it was cheap on Kindle, bought it and then forgot about it just as quickly. I tend to save any books I've bought on Kindle for going on holiday but since that isn't happening anytime soon and I've ran out of physical books they are coming in handy.


"Mackie, Edele, Alex and Nat are navigating their chaotic and confusing twenties together. They have jobs and pay their own rent (well, most of them) but don't know how to bleed radiators, defrost a freezer or test the smoke alarms.


With break-ups to deal with and major decisions to make, life can get messy especially when they're still trying to get the hang of this 'being a grown-up' thing.

Welcome to the joys of being almost adults."


This book reminded me of everything I loved about 'Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging' but for adults. Much like thGeorgia Nicolson series followed me through my teens I feel like this book is perfect now I'm an 'Almost Adult' too.

The story is told from the point of views of four twenty-somethings. Centered around one of the characters breakups with her boyfriend is goes onto explore the different ways the characters are navigating this early stage of adulthood.

One of the great things about the story being told from four points of view is it really gives you the opportunity to get to know and relate to each character more. You can really resonate with the girls being the same age but at different points in their life, career and relationships. In the past I've been Nat and Edele but at the moment it is really Alex's perspective that I connected with.

It took me just 4 days to read which says it all really. A lovely, easy read about female friendship and being in almost-adulthood. I can't wait to read what Ali Pantony does next!

I'd love to read some more books along the same lines as 'Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging' or 'Almost Adults' so if you have any recommendations please leave them below or give me a follow on 'Good Reads'.
