APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Despite being written before her 30th birthday, Dolly Alderton’s gloriously entertaining memoir reveals a very wise head. Everything I Know About Love feels like time spent with one of your favorite friends—Alderton has a wonderful self-deprecating warmth to her writing that creates a “just a few more pages” mindset. More than simply an enjoyable traipse through her history of unworthy boyfriends and hedonistic misadventures, Alderton's book is also an intelligent celebration of female friendships.

So relevant and so well written. I put off reading this book for months just because everyone told me to read it. Should’ve listened to them.
A truly luge changing read.
Must read for every 20 something girl
I laughed, cried and laughed again - finishing this book in 2 days. Every part is relatable to a 20 something making their way through life. Hands down, the best book I have read. Thank you Dolly for the laughs and tears but most importantly the reassurance my 30s creeping up isn’t going to be so bad xx
