*Review* Over You By: Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus
Over You - Nicola Kraus,Emma McLaughlin

Over You is a fun bubbly read. The story was very nicely wrote, and definitely a interesting read. The story captures a strong, determined female character who has a business that try’s to help girls get over their ex’s, but only to find herself in her own situation.

"Reading is life"

Always take time to read, rather it be a book or a newspaper. Just read anything, reading can make you feel relaxed, it's good for the mind.

Hilariously Funny!
Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things - Jenny Lawson

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 life that doesn't sound real, but she has the pictures to back up everything and a lot of those pictures I found to be freaking hilarious.

 

I don't have much else to say except that we need more memoirs out here about things like depression and social anxiety. I think a lot of times people just don't understand telling a person to just "cheer up" is enough to make the other person on the receiving end of that not helpful at all comment want to curl up and say fuck it. Having a mental illness is every day telling your inner voice or voices to shut the fuck up and you are a liar.

 

I am doing much better now in my 30s than I was in my late 20s. Being diagnosed as clinically depressed was shocking. I felt like I had let down my family, friends, and even myself. Having a great doctor who made me feel okay with that and let me see it was no shame to have to take medication for a while also helped. There are things that I do now when I can feel a "blue" period coming on. I do love Lawson's idea of doing things that make you "Furiously Happy" though. 

 

I will say though that this book jumps around a lot and there doesn't seem to be an overall linkage there. For example, when I usually have a memoir to read it is focusing on something, an event, time period, etc in an author's life. This read like hilarious journal entries from Lawson. I can't tell you the time period at all though especially since her daughter's age at times jumps around so I am a little lost about what years this stretches from. 


Definitely a great read for me.
