© Penguin Publishers

Summer is the perfect time of the year to kick back and relax with a good book. Consequently, it just so happens that You Don’t Have To Like Me is the perfect book to put at the top of your TBR (to be read) pile. You’ll be able to enjoy this quick and easy read in a day. Trust me when I say that you won’t put it down.

Alida Nugent’s compilation of essays is a wonderfully fresh look at the power of the F-word (feminism). Whether she’s writing about the trials and tribulations of being a twenty-something living in New York City or the importance of female friendships, she never misses a beat. You’ll find yourself whispering ‘Yes, girl’ and ‘Get it’ under your breath as you read. Most importantly, Nugent does not shy away from writing about the day-to-day problems women face in You Don’t Have to Like Me. Hers is a voice is full of heart that those who are beginning to navigate adulthood will instantly connect with.

For an added bonus, be sure to bring this book on your morning commute (or at the public pool, or park, or beach). The cover of this book is guaranteed to make at least one person satisfyingly uncomfortable.
