#MMBBR #Review Quarter Life Poetry: Poems for the Young, Broke and Hangry by Samantha Jayne @quarterlifepoet

The creator of the popular Quarter Life Poetry Tumblr and Instagram tackles real-life truths of work, money, sex, and many other 20-something challenges in this laugh-out-loud collection of poetry.

Samantha Jayne knows that life post-college isn't as glamorous as all undergrads think it's going to be... because she's currently living it. At 25, Samantha began creating doodles and funny poems about her #struggle to share with friends on Instagram. To her surprise, these poems were picked up by 20-somethings all around the world who agreed, "This is literally us."

At a time when it seems like everyone else is getting married, snagging a dream job, and paying off their student loans, Samantha's poetry captures the voice of young people everywhere who know that your 20s can sometimes be the exact opposite of "the best years of your life."

Samantha Jayne is an actress and writer living in Los Angeles. She's the creator of the popular Tumblr and Instagram Quarter Life Poetry, in which she documents the #struggles of adulthood through doodles and quatrains. Her work has been featured on Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, Hello Giggles, and shared across the web by disgruntled 20-somethings everywhere.




Oh my goodness, this poetry book is hilarious!  I love it.  This is a perfect gift for any of your girlfriend's birthday.  I have read this book form cover to cover several times and I have laughed each and every time.   I love the quick, funny poems accompanied by the cute colorful pictures. The book covers many parts of life like: routine, money, food, social life, sex, love, weddings, fashion, unemployment and work!  Although it is written for the millennial generation many can relate the the struggles Jayne writes about.  I am well past my 20's and I am closer to 40 than I am 30 and I still could relate to, remember and laugh about all the fun and crazy times I had as a 20 something and Jayne captures it with and impeccable humor!  5 stars
