In your twenties, a lot of things change. But even more than that, your perception changes. For some, this leads to frustration, angst or a full-blown identity crisis.

Wondering if you’re experiencing this? Check here. Pretty sure this sounds familiar? Read on to find out what books I’ve found most impactful in this period of my life.
An all-time favorite of mine, a classic for many and (fun fact!) one of David Bowie’s top 100 books of all time is Michael Chabon’s Wonder Boys. The eclectically crafted tale of a weekend in the main character’s life tells a deeply relatable story for anyone who has battled an inner demon before.
One of my favorite books these past weeks has been Anneliese Mackintosh’s Any Other Mouth. Read my review below.
