You Don’t Have to Like Me by Alida Nugent.

This book is the older sister I’ve never had, the one whose been through it all, the one that has graduated college while you’re in your sophomore year in high school, this book is the pick me up you need after a break-up; this book is the best friend I need coming to the rescue when I need her, the mother that will give her child a self-love talk. This book is EVERYTHING!
it’s so funny! while I read this, I pictured myself at brunch with successful girlfriends (including me) while chatting about life, and sipping on some orange juice (because I try to live my life alcohol free). It’s amazing and it’s so very unapologetically welcoming, I love this book and everything about it.
This book gives me power to be proud of who I am, it gives me the courage to be a proud woman and to stand up to anybody willing to shame me of that, or to just not care about them! because everyone will always have an opinion! This book gives me the strength I need to slap a girl in the face for judging me and walk away (or run away) proudly. I love that this book gives me confidence to embrace myself, my flaws and also my beauties!
This is such a good read for not only 2018 but for my early 20’s as now that I am way out of peer pressure, I am learning to stand tall alone, and rely more on myself. It gives birth control advice, and owning what you like and don’t like about yourself, and be unapologetic about it.
and it doesn’t read like a typical dry self-help book, “follow these steps to become a better human being.” but through her experiences! I feel like she’s having an actual conversation with me, it’s the girl sleep over of my life.
As she tells her pregnancy scare story that made her go into birth control, I feel myself terrified for her, and recall my own fear and my breakdown moment which finally made me jump to get into getting an IUD for myself; how our experiences of contraception are completely different: she get’s the pill and everything turns out great, her period regulates, acne clears, etc! I get the IUD and the moment of it entering, I know a new level of pelvic pain that won’t be known unless you get a ParaGuard IUD – Just to sum it all up: If my pain was rated from 1-10, 1 the least, 10 the worst; believe me when I say this, 10 is nothing compared to what I felt, not even 100.
my body shakes at the thought of it again >.<
This book is the girlfriend you want to tell all of your secrets to and share everything with because this book will accept you for you are, and not just hope you do the same, but MAKE you do the same regardless of whatever you think of her.
I completely love this book so much oxoxoxoxox!
I think this is my new favorite word – UNAPOLOGETIC. 
Do I recommend? YES!

Purchase on Amazon.

Totally not done reading it, but couldn’t wait to write about it.
