    "Good entertainment for airplane rides"

    I listened to the whole book while I was flying to spring break. I'm subscribed to Grace's Chanel on YouTube and I am used to great consistent quality, and I was not disappointed. It's not an exciting book, but one for relaxation.
    The book was pretty funny, and had a couple of good tips, while providing somewhat of an autobiography.
    My only complaint is that I expected to get an overall bigger message from the book, but I don't feel like that aspect was as strong as the humor.
    Other than that, I had a good time listening to the book, and made my flight actually enjoyable. Good job Grace!

    "Better than I had even hoped!"
    Where does Grace's Guide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first comedy audio book in my library and it has certainly raised the bar for others. She perfectly narrates with the sass and clarity she does in her videos. She shares her ups, downs, and everything in between to help anyone who does have their shit together...aka everyone!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jersey hair poof.


    Which character – as performed by Grace Helbig – was your favorite?

    Graaaace??


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Eat Shit! jk don't that bad for you...Just the tip.


    Any additional comments?

    Truly Grace thank you for sharing your experience and advice. I am 24 and do not have a clue of what I am doing. You have helped me understand myself and provided much needed tips on how to adult. Thank you.

    "Dorky, fun and educational."

    Life lessons. Why aren't they teaching this in school? Why teach Algebra when there are more applicable lessons to be taught?

    Grace was funny and so real. I smiled and I laughed, and most importantly, she gave me the courage I needed to quit my crappy job. She's like the dorky big sister I always wanted but never had.

    "Great Book, Great Author"

    I love that the narration is by Grace herself. It makes listening to it at least fifteen times better! It was a great book with lots of good advice

    "Amazing Book!"

    I love Grace in general, she brings so much wit and intelligence to her book. She really helps guide you with real-life experiences she has. It is a great read, especially with the audio book! It sounds like she is actually reading it right next to you!!!

    "Highly entertaining"

    Grace is strange, and I love it. She writes/speaks in a quirky but totally relatable way. I watch her on YouTube and she is hilarious, this book is like a deeper extension of her YouTube life. Being a millennial (I hate that term by the way) a lot of what Grace mentions I can relate to and apply to my life.Is that sad? The advice is structured in a way that is funny, honest and a bit off the wall. Which is why I love it so much.

    Thank you Grace for the funnies. I'm sure my co-workers think I'm a nut job for all the random laughing to myself, as I listened to your book, but I'm ok with that since I was thoroughly entertained.

    "This book is just like Grace herself"

    I only recently discovered Grace Helbig from her E! Network television show. I then subscribed to her YouTube channel immediately. From there I discovered her podcast, along with the other YouTube channels of Mamrie Hart, Tyler Oakley, and Hannah Hart. Then I downloaded this book.

    After only a couple months of following Grace online this book gave awesome background to her. I think reading this book only makes you love Grace more, and will probably help me to enjoy her YouTube channel ten times more! I can see why she has so many followers across social media, and this book showcased great humility in this stretch of fame she seems to have come across.

    Humble, awkward, complimentary to friends, family oriented, and a hard worker we're all new labels I had for Grace Helbig after listening to this book. I highly recommend this to anyone who knows who grace Helbig is.
