How Do You Like Me Now
is a must-read for any woman in their mid twenties and above. Tori seems to have it all - a long-term relationship, a publishing deal with a hugely successful self-help book and thousands of social media followers who shower her in likes and adoration. Pretty perfect life, right?

But life outside of Instagram isn’t as perfect. Tori’s relationship with Tom has hit a stalemate and he’s actually a bit of an arse (a big arse, really). I think their relationship is really going to resonate with a lot of people who are maybe still in a relationship that they know isn’t working. Some difficult issues are tackled within this relationship and it was really refreshing to read that side of things. A side that isn’t necessarily explored all that often.

Tori’s friends all seem to be “growing up” with engagements, weddings and babies. She proclaims in her self-help book that these things aren’t needed for you to be successful. You’re not a failure for not having those things. But she begins to have doubts and questions what she really wants. As women everywhere do at some point.

The biggest message I took from this book is that it’s OK to be yourself. It’s OK to want babies and marriages and it’s equally OK to not to. It felt like a more socially relevant, darker, Bridget Jones and I’ll be recommending it to everyone.
