Review: "Grown Ups" by Emma Jane Unsworth

WhatchYA Readin?

This video is so far from where I want it to be. My audio settings were messed up, I lost my tripod mount piece, and my camera died half-way through. I wanted to film and upload this next episode as a video episode, to set a new precedent, so I did and I’m still uploading it because perfection isn’t real! Ha ha. Today I’m reviewing “Grown Ups” by Emma Jane Unsworth– a book I picked up because I thought it might be vaguely relatable to my life and, turns out, it was. This book made me laugh, hold my breath, and have a small emotional spiral. #Casual “Grown Ups” is about Jenny McLiane; a 30-year-old woman working as a columnist at an online magazine The Floof. Her whole identity is wrapped up in her social media life, so when her ex leaves her, her body fails her, her friends start to leave her, and her mother moves back in with her… it’s a lot. I went on a journey with this book and I wasn’t at all expecting to. Honestly, if you’re in social media at all I recommend you listen to this book! Spoilers begin at 11:46 and end at 15:35. This is a short episode, but hopefully next time I’ll have my tech stuff sorted out and we’ll get a longer one. 😉 This book was gifted to me via Libro.fm’s influencer program, but I am not being paid to review it! If you use my link to sign up I’ll earn free audiobooks, so thank you. :) L I B R O . F M : http://bit.ly/malaraylibrofm I’m curious to hear if you’ve read “Grown Ups” and if you liked it or not. Leave a comment down below or over on Instagram – I respond to as many as I can! *Trigger warning*: I want to put a trigger warning in here for those of you who may have trauma around mis-carriages or have emotions tied to wanting to be pregnant, being unable to conceive, or really any sort of emotions tied to the completely complicated thoughts some of us women have in relation to motherhood. This book deals with a lot of those things and I wanted to be sure to call that out so you could be not taken by surprise, as I was. ♡ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
