Everything I know about Love: a witty and honest review of friendship, love and learning by Dolly Alderton Everything_i_know_about_love_review.png
Dolly Alderton’s book ‘Everything I know about Love’ is a vital read for any girl between the age of 17 and 30, and, I imagine, still a fantastic read for people that fall outside that age bracket. Being an avid listener of ‘The High Low’ podcast by Dolly Alderton and Pandora Sykes I knew that...
