So according to BL, I started reading this December 16, 2017. That means it took me 9 months to finish this wonderful book. Since Jenny Lawson discusses her struggle with depression and anxiety disorders at length (in the best, funniest way possible) I had to take several long breaks when my anxiety...

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleAs Lawson clearly states in the beginning of this book, if you don't like funny books about mental illness, do not read this book. Pretty simple. If you are looking for a serious discussion on mental health and how to "fix" yourself, look elsewhere. Th...

Not too much to say except I loved every part of this memoir. It made me think and also laugh which is always welcomed. Lawson suffers from depression and anxiety disorders and just generally has a body that does it best to make her have to duke it out to win against on a daily basis. She has a l...

A funny book about topics you didn't know you had to hear about. I identified way too much with Lawson's random thought process and saw myself in many of her situations. It is always great to know we are not alone; that depression, not fitting in, having the weirdest things happen to you, and enjoy...

December 20-24 In LET'S PRETEND THIS NEVER HAPPENED, Jenny Lawson baffled readers with stories about growing up the daughter of a taxidermist. In her new book, FURIOUSLY HAPPY, Jenny explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxie...

I actually finished this book last week but as the site was down I'm taking the opportunity to post it now. :-) I'm not entirely sure why it's taken my so long to read Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson. As I mentioned in the post where I reviewed Let's Pretend This Never Happened, I freaking LOVE Je...

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things - Jenny Lawson *3.5 STARS* Let me start by saying, I think I would have done better with reading this instead of listening to the audiobook on this one. I actually like the author's voice and personality. But in this instance, I think it wa...

I'm not really going to review this. I just wanted to say a few words about what this book represents. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder, adult children of an alcoholic syndrome, OCD, depression and who knows what else. I have been suicidal on and off my whole adult life. And for so damn lo...

4 Stars, borrow it Who knew that a book about mental illness could be so damned funny? Well, at least in parts. The bit about the dead racoon rodeo at 3am had me laughing so hard that tears were pouring down my face. In between the funny parts are very serious discussions about mental illness,...

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read this book. Nonfiction isn’t really my thing (unless it’s nonfiction about religious cults, but that’s a long story which doesn’t belong here.) Anyway, one day I was walking through Target after a dental appointment. My teeth were throbbing, and I had a massive heada...
