and put away in the linen closet. celebrity sightings and her internship at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. titles like, Are You an Introvert or Just a Lazy Asshole But my reading experience encountered some minor hindrances when it came to the series of men in this bookFirstly, I couldn t help but hear the uncanny resemblance Dana Schwartz s writing voice bore to Esther s from the TV series Alone Together probably because they re both New York millennial Jewish girls In particular, those moments when Dana s hanging on to a guy who s giving her the clear He s just not that into you signals which she herself notesthan once.SourceI appreciated when Dana focusedon chronicling her personal life, instead of wasting time on the men in her life that ditched her or vice versa, like a broken record I have to admit, though, that I felt delicious victory at putting together the identity of a certain established writer she was keen on that ended up ghosting her It threw me off with the overtly sexual details that I truly don t care enough to spend pages on pages I mean, there s this lawyer dude that I skipped reading because he came off as the biggest creep , but he was still written about for over twenty pages If nothing else, the aforementioned made for a comical line in her acknowledgments To all of the men I ve slept with, thank you for giving me what I needed in that moment, for making me feel special or wanted or loved And if you hurt me, thank you for helping me to learn while I was young Hope you bought this book full price just to see if I wrote about you.Oh, what last linesOn another note I couldn t shake off my annoyance when it came to the constant excuses for her bad calls by comparing herself to problematic fictional women It just brings home the point that fiction shapes your viewpoint, in particular, when she tries to brush off flirting and sleeping with a married man by using these women from TV shows that cheated Carrie Bradshaw, Rory Gil, Olivia Pope Everything about this screams midlife crisis with precocious college kid.If I d gotten aindividual take on Dana Schwartz as a person not Dana Schwartz in a relationship I would ve grown to appreciate this memorable take on memoirs that .ARC kindly provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Expected publication June 19th, 2018Note I m anAffiliate If you re interested in

    Choose Your Own Disaster is 250 pages of sighing in relief that oh, thank God, I m not the only one who has that thought process I ve been a fan of Schwartz and her Guy In Your MFA account since my junior year of college I was in a fairly constant back and forth of wondering are we the same person and grumbling to myself in jealousy about how she was only a year older than me and so accomplished online like when I was eleven and thought I was destined to be a famous child actor if Dakota Choose Your Own Disaster is 250 pages of sighing in relief that oh, thank God, I m not the only one who has that thought process I ve been a fan of Schwartz and her Guy In Your MFA account since my junior year of college I was in a fairly constant back and forth of wondering are we the same person and grumbling to myself in jealousy about how she was only a year older than me and so accomplished online like when I was eleven and thought I was destined to be a famous child actor if Dakota Fanning would just stop taking all the roles Choose Your Own Disaster made me ask that first question evenWhen Schwartz recounted her childhood attempt at sending her rhyming book to a publisher, I cringed in embarrassment thinking about how when I was nine I tried to pitch a new cartoon to Nickelodeon via their webpage where you could ask who voiced Sandy Cheeks or why Penelope never seemed lucky enough to meet Amanda.also You final thought is, I hope someone goes through all of my old essays and fiction and publishes a book that rockets to bestseller status on the wings of my tragic backstory Reader, I audibly gasped

    The author is asking people on twitter to give this book 5 stars even though it s not out till next month That s the definition of lame Giving this one star and will readjust once I ve actually read the book EDIT I have now read the book and adjusted my rating.This book was tricky for me because I really do think Dana is a good writer The pacing and voice of this book was so easy to digest and really likable There were multiple times when I picked up the book with the intention of reading The author is asking people on twitter to give this book 5 stars even though it s not out till next month That s the definition of lame Giving this one star and will readjust once I ve actually read the book EDIT I have now read the book and adjusted my rating.This book was tricky for me because I really do think Dana is a good writer The pacing and voice of this book was so easy to digest and really likable There were multiple times when I picked up the book with the intention of reading just a few pages and found myself reading for an hour Dana s voice lends itself to the format and she clearly knows her audience, given that the book if filled to the brim with name drops and pop culture references so much so that it often became a bit repetitive Unfortunately, the book lacks depth It felt almost like I was just reading a sparknotes summary of things that happened in Dana s life She dated this guy Then they ended Then she had this job Then she went on this trip Then she dated this other guy I would have loved a little bitreflection and insight into these events Never did I really learn much about who Dana is as a person or what her career and life goals really are were at any point I feel like this could be in part due to the second person perspective it was written in A cute style choice but ultimately an obstacle in getting to hear how Dana truly thinks and feels about things The highlights of this book were the chapters that tackled theserious events in Dana s life Her descriptions of her eating disorder and heartbreaking experience with sexual abuse were poignant, intimate, and honest I would have loved if she tackled the rest of her experiences with the same level of reflection, even if they lacked the seriousness of those struggles I don t know, man I just feel like this was too long to be a comical personality test and too aloof to be a proper memoir At some points it s just straight up confusing Dana mixes in elements of fiction to play up the personality test elements but doesn t always do a great job of clarifying what s the fact and what s the fiction Like, did she really cheat on Matt with the married guy If the goal of this was to share true stories of her life, I m not sure if I can call it a success.Dana s a good writer and I would love to read a true reflective memoir from her in the future This is fun, but it s not that

    First I d like to discourage anyone considering getting the Kindle version I got it and it made the format a bit annoying After reading a few reviews here I realised I missed a few juicy passages that apparently provide some very welcome context It s just confusing About the book I really wanted to like it, because I simply love Dana s social media presence She s been on my feed everyday for god knows how long, so I thought this memoir was going to be an experience close to catching up wi First I d like to discourage anyone considering getting the Kindle version I got it and it made the format a bit annoying After reading a few reviews here I realised I missed a few juicy passages that apparently provide some very welcome context It s just confusing About the book I really wanted to like it, because I simply love Dana s social media presence She s been on my feed everyday for god knows how long, so I thought this memoir was going to be an experience close to catching up with a friend I expected some entertaining gossip and funny fail anecdotes Instead I encountered stories of an insecure teenage nerd, somewhat of a late bloomer and a socially inept young adult with poor judgement regarding personal relationships and boundaries A lot of it was cringe worthy The second person narrative really is fun in quizzes and such, but in this book it became tiresome at times But I guess it communicates with the the format, so there s that.I really enjoy memoirs by women I like relatable stories even and especially if they are sometimes ugly The things is, Dana is so young Her disasters come from a place of insecurity and overall they are so basic The narrative lacks edge and confrontation Dana is such a great pop culture critic, but I felt like instead of looking inwards and providing the readers with deep and even sarcastic reflections which is, after all, her style , she just drops awkward tales here and there.Not to mention that this is another tale of privilege, Ivy League education, name dropping, etc etc Dana is without a doubt a very talented writer and a very funny woman, but her story is a reminder that meritocracy is a myth, which, in the context of this shallow book, is kind of infuriating.I think this autobiography could have been a lot better if it were written 5 to 10 years from now

    I devoured this in one weekend Dana s voice sucks you in, her stories are alternately laugh out loud funny and smartly introspective, and you won t be able to put this one down I d recommend this to anyone who loves GIRLS, BuzzFeed quizzes, or Dana s Twitter.

    Dana Schwartz examines her twenties with brutally honest humor using a parody style of the internet quiz She shares relatable stories about disordered eating, dating the wrong men, mediocre dates, and sexual assault Her self awareness, and ability to turn life s tragedies into comedy is what made this a 5 Star memoir Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free copy of this ebook.

    This book is damn close to being in my 20 or 30 something female required reading category Though some topics are uncomfortable BDSM, eating disorders, infidelity , I cringed because I could identify with the desperation at hand Real, important stories.
