Kristan Hoffman describes her book by saying “Think Sex and the City meets Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” I really love this description because it makes it clear that the book is about a group of close-knit friends. The thing I loved about ‘Twenty-Somewhere’ is that it’s set right after the girls (Sophie, Claudia and MJ) graduate from college. I haven’t read that many books that take place during this time, so that made it interesting for me. Hoffman did a good job describing the girls' ...more

I've read entirely too many coming-of-age novels lately because I went into this one interested, but feeling like I'd read it all... yeah, not so much. This is more than a teenage girl finding herself, more than a the average 18-year-old finding himself. It's about a group of up-and-coming 20-somethings who help each other find themselves through love, laughter and fun.

The start of the book is a little rough. It takes a while to get used to the "episodes" and it felt a little disjointed at first

I actually read all the episodes of this book on my Kindle and found myself sucked in right away.

The series is very addictive. I could relate to the struggles and growth these characters were going through right out of college. And honestly, once I got to a certain point, I had to stay up to finish reading. The author is working on a proposal for St. Martin's Press to turn these episodes into a more traditional book format. I can hardly wait to see how it turns out!

For a light, refreshing read, Twenty-Somewhere hits the spot. It's not your typical coming of age book full of angst & brooding. Twenty-Somewhere is a smart, witty story of three friends who make mistakes, learn from them & seem to actually enjoy their journey. Sophie, MJ & Claudia discover that life happens while you're making other plans. Through fights, break-ups & major career changes these girls find their own strength. They learn that jumping into life with out a net is ...more

Was a quick read, but nothing really sets this apart from other books written about college grads trying to find themselves...the chapters are short though and it holds your attention since it doesnt really veer off the same storyline for the entire book.

Short, almost novella-ish self-published e-book about three girls who graduate from college and struggle with typical post-graduation choices re: boys, career, life direction, etc. I liked the characters. They felt real and well-developed. Pretty sheltered and not particularly exciting, but that's part of what made them seem authentic and relatable. The plot was also OK -- I couldn't exactly describe it, but there was a quality that made me keep reading. I wanted to find out what was going to ...more

Three friends in their early 20's head out into the world. So original, I know! Still it was not a bad book. I got through it pretty quickly. Two of these girls had almost all male friends, who of course wanted to hook up with them. I felt like she could have done something differently than all that when she only had 3 main characters to work with. It was hard to separate those two girls as I was reading. I found myself checking how many pages I had left after I had gotten about halfway through ...more

AVERAGED TOTAL: 3.3 out of five, rounded to 3.

This was an alright book. It was originally written as a series of "episodes" which explains the disjointedness. It was an interesting look at three twenty-something girls, and I enjoyed the sort of... finding your way message about it. The end wrapped up a bit quicker than I expected, but overall it was a good, simple sort of read.

The writing style was a little confusing. Narration would go back and forth between characters in different places, and they were in episodes rather than chapters. It was a good, quick read, but nothing substantial. It felt like a first effort, and I even think I saw some typos in the kindle version..

I feel like I read the cliff notes version of this book! Crazy things happen and *bam* - end scene! And it may get mentioned later but that's it. I was incredibly annoyed by how these girls all had multiple men panting after them. And for all the man drama, the two single girls never found the right guy. This book just wasn't for me I guess.

This was a fun little summer read. I got the sisterhood of the traveling pants without the stupid pants part (no way they all fit in the same jeans) feeling. I also enjoyed how this one was more "grown up" and sensible than most coming of age stories these days.

Got this title as a bargain book or freebie on my Kindle and I just could not get into it or enjoy it at all, so at half way through I am giving up...

This was an alright book. I know it probably falls into the genre of romance, but lucky for me, it wasn't totally centered around the girls' love lives. Fast read.
