Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be A Grown-up by Grace Helbig |Book Review


Genre: Non-Fiction, Humor, Self-Help

Face it—being a young adult in the digital era is one of the hardest things to be. Well, maybe there are harder things in life…but being an adult is difficult! So Grace Helbig has written a guide that’s perfect for anyone who is faced with the daunting task of becoming an adult.

Infused with her trademark saucy, sweet, and funny voice, Grace’s Guide is a tongue-in-cheek handbook for millennials, encompassing everything a young or new (or regular or old) adult needs to know, from surviving a breakup to recovering from a hangover. Beautifully illustrated and full-color, Grace’s Guide features interactive elements and exclusive stories from Grace’s own misadventures—like losing her virginity solely because her date took her to a Macaroni Grill—and many other hilarious lessons she learned the hard way.

Amusing and unexpectedly educational, this refreshing and colorful guide proves that becoming an adult doesn’t necessarily mean you have to grow up.



Having just officially entered the “adult” world it is always good to know I am not alone. This book was humorous, heartfelt and so incredibly relatable. Helbig covers topics that anyone in their 20s can definitely find a connection to and her writing has the conversational style of someone who you have been friends with forever.

While reading through this “self-help” book, there were so many sections and passages that I instantly wanted to call and talk to my best friend about although while reading it I felt like I was talking to a friend. I couldn’t help but burst out laughing at sections and flagged and noted so many things that I really enjoyed or wanted to share.

If you have ever watched Grace’s youtube channel you will enjoy this book. It is layered with anecdotes from her life and contains the light and funny humor that you come to expect from her channel! I can see myself buying this for my friends who are in the same situation as me, just ending college and entering the adult world. Although most of the book is silly and hilarious, there is loads of practical information and some tips and advice I found to be useful! If you haven’t already check out her youtube channel itsGrace and pick up this book!
