"There are some amazing ideas in this book and they shouldn’t have an age limit. There are so many things that I feel anyone could take from this book … it’s a great list for people who are over 30 too. There are quite a few books the author mentions to read that … I might add to my ‘To Read’ shelf."

"Make a bucket list or don’t, but it’s always important to have goals and aspirations. If you’re looking for a little inspiration on that front, Things to Do Before You’re 30 will help. It’s funny, insightful, a little over the top, but at the very least it will get you thinking about what you want out of your life. Next thing you know you’ll be in Iceland watching the Northern Lights from an airplane you’re about to jump out of."

"Her suggestions are thoughtful and focus on expanding world view and experience, but also on injecting a little fun into an often fraught decade. Her advice isn’t hokey or obvious, and peppered in among the bigger endeavors are quieter ones. It can serve as a bucket list for anyone at any age [but] the book does evoke a certain kinship among us millennials. It may not necessarily give us the answers to our lives, but it at least lets us know we’re not alone in our struggle and that it gets better."

You don’t even need to go anywhere for some of her suggestions, but instead bring those you love and care about closer."

"I am a massive fan of this book. Beautifully illustrated and compiled, it includes 600 recommendations to do before you reach the fabulous age of 30. It’s one of those books to keep close to your bed. When you are feeling in need of inspiration or dare I say bored. Open a page – any page – and look to do one of the suggestions Jessica has given. Some need more forward planning, but often many suggestions can be incorporated into your life with immediate effect."
