Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse by Alida Nugent


Certainly an entertaining read, but it’s pretty much the same old song and dance as with other memoirs by funny twenty-somethings—stories about being single and jobless, having awful boyfriends and no money, finding a first apartment and struggling to buy groceries, pay the phone bill, and make student loan payments. The genre is starting to get a little too familiar to be smart and original.

No. 23 on my challenge.
