Book Reviews

Here I talk about books I have read and give you ideas on a book to purchase, borrow or steal.

BLOGGER NOTE: I rate a book by the times it blows my mind. 1 🤯 a small poof up to 5 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯 mind blowing.

Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson AKA The Bloggess

I’ve just finished Jenny Lawsons 2nd New York Times Bestseller, “Furiously Happy,” and I am shouting, I LOVE IT from the rooftops! I laughed until I cried (and at one point almost peed myself). Jenny puts a positive spin on mental illness (if there is such a thing).

I suffer from a panic disorder; that began when I was in my teens, so I could relate to Jenny’s stories of general awkwardness and late-night adventures with her cats and other animals, (well I don’t have cats, I have dogs, and I don’t play with them in the middle of the night but I do have insomnia, I can relate). Jenny owns her imperfections with hilarious honesty. Follow Jenny Lawson, AKA “The Bloggess,” and you will be pleasantly shocked by the stories of her childhood in Texas. As you finish one of The Bloggess’s memoirs, you will want more and crave the temporary laughter she brings to your life. After putting down her second book, I admit to feeling a small amount of separation anxiety from this beautifully crazy author. No need to fret, though, Jenny has released a 3rd NY Times Bestseller, “Broken (In the Best Possible Way).”

Watch this space for further reviews; until then, get yourself some Jenny Lawson, grab a glass of wine, kick back and get ready to laugh till your face hurts.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the twists and turns in The Nature of Fragile Things. I fell in love with the main characters’ strength, perseverance, dedication, deep love and street smarts.
Thank you, #SusanMeissner for this page turner.

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened Released in 2012

By Jenny Lawson or The Bloggess

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened is the perfect book to pick up and read right now! If you’re anything like me and have struggled with depression, anxiety, or any other type of mental disorder, you will relate to Jenny as she introduces you to her husband, daughter, and taxidermied friends. Yes, you read that right! Jenny is most comfortable at home writing; however, her stories draw a crowd. Flip through the pages and take a journey inside her whacky and witty mind as she does book tours and accompanies her husband to his business events. Jenny is bold in her language while showing vulnerability and blatant honesty regarding any and every crazy idea that she puts into type. I lay in bed with my insomnia at 1 am laughing out loud at this book. Grab your medication and a copy for yourself or give it as a gift to other crazy readers you know. I promise you will cry yourself to sleep with tears of laughter if you go to bed with Jenny Lawson.

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened 🤯🤯🤯🤯 Jenny Lawson is my new favourite author.
