For a more detailed review, take a look at my blog. There is also additional information that might be useful if you are not familiar with Julia Albain and Starkid Productions.
A Glamorously Unglamorous Life consists of two different parts: One the one hand, there are blog posts that Julia published during her time in New York from August 2009 until July 2010. On the other hand, there are sections called Lessons, in which Julia reflects about her life back then and that basically sum up her experiences and what she learned from it. Both parts of the book are presented alternately and there is definitely a good balance between the blog posts and the life lessons.
Even though the book is self-published and so contains some mistakes in grammar and spelling every now and then, I really enjoyed this book a lot. It tells the story of a girl that wants to achieve something in life, but is not completely sure what to achieve and what to do. Even though Julia graduated in acting, she does some nannying and writing once she gets to New York. And of course this limits and opens possibilities at the same time. Julia is not afraid of questioning herself and her actions. And above all, she is not afraid of putting in words how awful and unfair life can be sometimes. The thing I loved most about this book is how I could relate to her - the not knowing what to do with life, the many possibilities you have, the way life just is miserable sometimes and you don't even know why you feel that way. Don't get me wrong. This is not a sad book or a book in which the author just complains about life. In fact, this book is really the complete opposite: It is a book about the beauty of life. Because even though life may just suck sometimes, Julia still stays strong and she works and tries to do everything to stay positive and get the most of every day. And that is what really made me enjoy and love this book: It is inspiring, because you want to be as strong and as self-confident as Julia. Still you know that everyone has their bad moments and it is okay to have them as long as you go on fighting afterwards.
