Book #72: Not That Kind of Girl, by Lena Dunham

I bought Not That Kind of Girl about a week and a half ago as a reward to myself over fall break. This was the perfect read to distract me from the stresses of grad school; it’s funny, emotional, and filled with just the right amount of awkward that fans of Dunham’s HBO series Girls” have come to expect.

In fact, Dunham’s collection of essays feels very much like jumping into Hannah Horvath’s head, except Dunham herself is probably in a better mental place than her character. Her stories vary from heartfelt to laugh-out-loud funny to cringe-worthy, but I wouldn’t really expect anything else.
