Summary

For fans of Grace Helbig and Alexa Chung comes a fresh, hilarious guide to growing up your way from social media influencer and lifestyle vlogger Arden Rose.

In Almost Adulting - perfect for budding adults, failing adults, and eaters of microwave mug brownies - Arden tells you how to survive your future adulthood. Topics include:

  • Making Internet friends who are cool and not murderers
  • Flirting with someone in a way to make them think you are cool and not a murderer
  • Being in an actual relationship where you talk about your feelings in a healthy manner??? To the other person???????
  • Eating enough protein
  • Assembling a somewhat acceptable adult wardrobe when you have zero dollars
  • Going on adventures without starting to smell
  • How sex is supposed to feel, but, like, actually though

By the end of the book, you'll have learned not only how to dress yourself, how to travel alone, how to talk to strangers online, and how to date strangers (in PERSON!) but also how to pass as a real, functioning, appropriately socialized adult.

'Adulting'

I enjoyed listening to Arden Rose narrate her book 'Almost Adulting' - and as the title suggest, it is about her journey in becoming almost an adult. Although I did enjoy my first audible book, I did not exactly found it anything like a 'self-help' book, rather, it was more like multiple essay on how Arden is managing her adulthood.

Pretty good

Entertaining enough to listen to the whole thing; nothing great enough to make a book mark... but also I am 27 and I think this book would a lot be better for people who are younger than 27.

Funny and Cute

I have read a few books about growing up and being an adult and this is a good one. It was a little more personal then i was expecting but i liked it and would recommend to people.

Quirky and fun read!

Loved this book! It's great if you're looking for a quick "read", quirky and funny perspective on what it looks like to "grow up". I love Arden rose, I think she's hilarious, so it's an added perk that she narrates it :)

Easy to listen to and relatable for all of us Almost Adults

I've watched Arden on YouTube over the past 5 or so years and this book was such a wonderful summation of all the fun, quirky, and insightful traits that draw so many people to her personality. She speaks in a way that is relatable, yet unique and makes you feel like you aren't alone. She becomes a friend and someone that you feel you can turn to when you need a helping hand or encouragement. I'm so proud of the direction her career is taking and hope that she continues down the path of writing!

A much-needed talk to an older sister

This is my first audiobook ever and I’m glad I chose this one. It felt like a much-needed talk to an older sister. Thank you, dear Arden Rose, for opening up about your struggles, relationships, and sex.

LOVE LOVE LOVE ARDEN

I’ve been wanting to read/listen to this book for awhile now. Arden doesn’t disappoint! Great YouTube content and a great book. Definitely recommend this and wish I had been able to read it like 10 years ago as a young teen. Thanks for the laughs and lessons Arden.
