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

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 enjoying wholeheartedly the joyous moments in life because you have been on the other side of the spectrum is a-okay. To living furiously happy.

Horrible Harry and the Christmas Surprise - Suzy Kline

This was a very easy read. There are only four chapters, each of which are pretty short.

This book was okay. It is the first Horrible Harry book I have read.

It was cute and the writing was simple. I did like the ending, but overall it wasn't a very interesting read for me.

Amityville Horrible - Kelley Armstrong,Maurizio Manzieri

I have to say that Jamie is my favorite character in the series. Mostly, because she is the everywoman who just happens to be able to talk to ghosts. She is not stupid, though she think she is, but she is the most normal of the women in the series. She also is a modern woman who is in a relationship with a man who gets that her career is important to her. And they are older, not those young things. True, the plot is a little predictable, but Armstrong does make use and have fun with the reality genre. This is a nice edition to the series.

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

I'd never heard of Jenny Lawson before I saw this book, but decided to give it a try after I saw Bark's review of it. It's a really funny memoir about how Jenny waved a big fat middle finger at depression by being ridiculously happy and seeing the humour in everything, good or bad. It's a great book to turn to for a bit of light relief when Grapes of Wrath gets a bit intense.

I liked this book. It made me laugh. Not all rolling on the floor and laughing my effing bum off but it made me laugh on the inside. I knew it. And that is all that counts.

 

This Jenny person has a skewed sense of humor that I love and adored. She is weird and she embraces it. She’s also mentally ill with a laundry list of disorders. She suffers from depression and crushing anxiety and a host of other disorders but she still manages to live a life that sounds fun and that is inspiring. She does get to navel gazing a wee bit here and there and not everything is laugh on the inside funny but it never, ever bored me. I can see why her blog is so very popular. She has a way of telling a story that drags you into her world. She talks about some serious issues but you never want to drown in a pit of despair. How she manages to do this is beyond me. I’m just thankful she has the talent to do so because I needed a little laugh after A Little Life.

 

I did not take notes and although there are many quote worthy tidbits in this book, you’ll have to go read the thing yourself because I was reading selfishly for joy and was too frigging lazy to be bothered to write any of them down. I think reading them for the first time is part of the fun anyway. So do yourself a little good and find yourself this audio. It’s read by the author whose voice is a little squeaky (she even admits this) but they're her words and I don’t think it would feel right to listen to anyone else voice them.
