Book Review Wednesday: Act Like a Lady by The Ladygang

No comments
I have never listened to The Ladygang podcast before I read their book but I was still intrigued. It seemed like the kind of 'adult' guide that I could get behind. It seemed no-nonsense, straight to the point, and funny book that I would love.

Well, all my predictions were right. 

"Act Like A Lady" was SO GOOD. It's so good that I want to read it again and am considering purchasing the actual book. *I received a copy from Netgalley for review*. However, this is the type of book that you need a hardcopy of. It's a book that deserves to be flipped through every so often and to learn new things from constantly.

It's a self-help book that doesn't speak like a self-help book which are sometimes the best kind.


Publisher's Summary

If you're tired of being bombarded with the curated perfection on social media and you're starving for something raw, honest, and a little bit messy, welcome to the LadyGang. Keltie, Becca, and Jac are here to clear away the bullshit and give you the confidence to live your best lady's life.

Unabashedly sincere, clever, and full of questionable advice, Act Like a Lady explores the complexities surrounding topics like body image, breakups, navigating a career, and adult friendships through their own embarrassing experiences. The LadyGang has your back with essays like "Maybe She's Born with It, Maybe It's Photoshop" and "If You're Happy and You Know It, Thank Your Ex." You'll learn there are a million different ways to be a lady--and that includes accidentally farting during sex or having the guts to tell your friend she's being a selfish assh*le. No matter what you're going through, you'll find a space to bond over the sloppy, heartbreaking, joyous, and often ridiculous realities of womanhood. Nothing is TMI here.

My Thoughts

As mentioned above, I don't listen to The Ladygang podcast but the book still interested me. I liked the title, loved the cover, and wanted to hear what the three women who call themselves "The Ladygang" had to say.

The ladies take turns speaking their truths, telling their stories, and being extremely raw and real. They touch on everything from jobs to relationships to death and mental illness. They don't hold anything back and are brutally honest with their words.

It was refreshing to hear real advice from women who have been through a lot. Even though they are 'celebrities' they still felt relatable and honest. I felt like I was sitting around with my girlfriends, shooting the shit.

I think if you need an easy but informative self-help book that won't make you feel bad about where you are in life, listen to the Ladygang!

What are you reading this week?
