A spot-on, wildly funny and sometimes heart-breaking book about growing up, growing older and navigating all kinds of love along the wayWhen it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out. It's a book about bad dates, good friends and - above all else - about recognising that you and you alone are enough.Glittering, with wit and insight, heart and humour, Dolly Alderton's powerful dbut weaves together personal stories, satirical observations, a series of lists, recipes, and other vignettes that will strike a chord of r...

Everything I Know About Love Reviews
I listened to Everything I Know About Love on audiobook, mostly during my commute. This was good and bad - good because I hate to not finish books and there's no way I would've finished this if I had to dedicate 100% of my attention to it, as opposed to listening whilst travelling, cleaning etc. However, the bad was that I perhaps would've interpreted it differently in book form. In audio form, I found Dolly frustrating, whiney and self-indulgent where I might have taken the written format more ...more
Perfect 5 star read from me - one of the best, honest, moving reads of 2018 so far. Cant stop shouting about this one from the rooftops
I tried to read this book three times and I’m not going to give it yet another chance.
I stopped reading around page 180, but I just can’t finish it.
I struggle empathising with someone who just messes her life up. I don’t mean to be judgemental or anything, I happen to like Dolly Alderton, or I like her insight on things, more exactly.

This was an interesting concept, I haven't read many memiors but do have a few on my TBR shelf. Once I started this book I wasn't sure what to expect and for a bit I was wanting more description rather than just been told something, but after about 30% the book got more detailed and interesting. I really liked Dolly and her friends were fabulous they all were supportive of her and there for her, which is what you need in a friend. I finishied this book wishing there was more books. I hope Dolly ...more
thoroughly enjoyed every word
I felt a real connection to this book - aspects of my childhood and teenage years were so similar to Alderton’s. She describes the rollercoaster ride of university that really would be impossible without the insanely close female friendships that you forge. And I felt in awe of her writing the entire way through. I think I’ve read this at the perfect time.
The best damn book I've read this year and I genuinely don't knowwwwww what to do with myself now how can I start something else SEND HELP DOLLY THE QUEEN I LOVE ONE (1) WOMAN
