I hope everyone has had a beautiful, adventure-filled summer! My summer has been a whirlwind to say the least, leaving me with absolutely no time to read or blog! But as summer winds down and a new season settles in, I enter a new life season of my own filled with many changes and life questions… But none of that right now, I’ve got a book to share!
Twentysomething: Surviving and Thriving in the Real World by Margaret Feinberg
Rating: 3.0 – 4.0
I started reading this book back in the spring and only now just finished it this morning. I wish I had finished it awhile ago, I could have used some of the counsel and encouragement this summer!
Like any season in life, the characteristics of being a twentysomething will differ from person to person. For some of us it means the hustle and bustle of a brand new career, for some of us it means seemingly endless job hunts and wondering if, perhaps, you’ve started down the wrong path, and for the rest of us it means minimum wage grunt work until you get your big break. No matter what twentysomething looks like on the outside, we’re all trying to figure it out – who am I, what do I want to do, how do I get there, and who do I want to do it with? And further more, where is God in all of this? What does He want me to do with my life? Feinberg offers great wisdom and encouragement on how to make the most of this great life season. Everything from making and keeping friendships to handling stress, facing hard times, taking risks, setting priorities and learning from mistakes, she addresses some of the questions you may have asked yourself and maybe some you didn’t think to consider.
I gave it a 3 star rating because sometimes you have to take what you read with a grain of salt. I didn’t agree with all she said but it was worth the read and I’m glad I have a copy on my shelf. It’ll be good to refer back to it in the future or lend to someone else.
If you are a twentysomething like I am, I recommend this one. It’s a light, encouraging, read that could jumpstart all sorts of thoughts and considerations. It definitely has for me!!
Happy reading, y’all!
