    Earlier this year, I was one of the lucky people Jenny sent an Advance Reading Copy of her newest book to. The simple upshot? I loved it. I loved it even more than her first book, which I enjoyed so much that I bought multiple copies to give away as Christmas presents. The bad n...

    my love for jenny lawson is NOT AT ALL creepy jenny lawson, i wanna make you blts and braid your hair. i am really shitty at braiding, and my fingers will be covered in mayonnaise after making you all those blts, so it will probably get a little messy and crazy, but it's t...

    Upfront: I'm not very objective about this book because Jenny is someone I consider a friend (although we've only met once I think!) and I'm a huge fan of her blog, AND she blurbed my book. But I wouldn't have asked her to blurb if I didn't love her stuff, ergo it doesn't feel weird to...

    Jenny talking about her mental illness was really impactful and well done, but the rest of this book didn't really work for me. It felt like she was trying too hard to be funny by throwing together random words to make the most strange sentences possible. This might just be how she alw...

    Audiobook: 30-day trial with audible/Amazon. I had no intentions of 'reading' this book ( I didn't request it from Netgalley as an early read), but then I read several positive reviews. ( one said its a 'must' read for everyone). Plus, friends told me 'memoirs' by the author th...

    The manically happy raccoon amongst scattered glitter on the cover is the best part of this book. I find very little humor in mental illness, even when it's offered up by someone who doesn't seem to mind using her chronic depression and crippling anxiety as a vehicle to what she says a...

    This book is furiously awesome. And I believe I'm mildly shrieking right now because IT WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED TO READ. It's about anxiety and depression, written in a really random and crazy and hyperbolic way -- and it was perfect. It was a very ME book. Usually books about anxiety (...
