This is NOT an endorsed post in any way, shape, or form! It's completely my own opinon! =)
I think that anyone who has been reading my blog for awhile knows that I am a fairly avid (albeit slow) reader. I decided that this book would be my first for 2016 and, let me tell you, I started the year off right!
Jenny Lawson is an amazing writer. Seriously, she can be poignant one second and hysterically funny the next! As for the funny, ummmm...Look at the cover of her book above! If you need more proof than that, her first book (which I highly recommend as well!) has a taxidermied mouse holding a mouse skull in its tiny paw - paying homage to Hamlet.
So, you can see from the onset that she is quirky!
But, here is the thing, if you suffer from depression, anxiety, or both, you will appreciate this book so very much! Her candor and humor are simultaneously brave and refreshing. She gets down to the heart of the issues she faces being "mentally ill". If you aren't suffering from the same issues, you will understand those who do a LOT better. If you are suffering, you feel like you have met a kindred spirit.
She is like no other memoir writer I have ever read. Her voice is unmistakable and most definitely "her own".
Seriously, grab it from the library if you can or, do like I did and buy it for your e-reader. I promise you it's worth every penny.
