    Earlier this year I was one of the lucky people Jenny sent an Advance Reading Copy of her newest book toThe simple upshot? I loved it I loved it even than her first book which I enjoyed so much that I bought multiple copies to give away as Christmas presents The bad news is that my life is such a bloody shambles that I didn't get back to her in time for a gushy blurb to make it onto the back of her book Not that she particularly needed one from me She's got Gaiman Allie Brosh and all manner of other fancy folk singing her praisesStill I loved the book And when I love a book this much I want to talk about it I want to encourage people to read the book so that your lives will be dramatically embettered I finished reading the book on an airplane and I was so happy and weepy and amazed that I sent Jenny the following series of text messages Jenny after a long delay I've finally finished your book while flying While it's still fresh in my mind here are some Potential Blurbs for your book This Book made me laugh in a restaurant it made me cry on an Airplane It made me feel like maybe I'm not a total human trainwreck It made me resolve to spend time being furiously happy I wish Jenny Lawson was my neighborThis book is a good book and you should buy this book and read this bookWhen I grow up I want to be Joss Whedon But if I don't have to grow up I'd like to be Jenny Lawson instead Jenny Lawson is a force for good in the worldWhen I finally give up on the world and retreat to the safety of my blanket fort Jenny Lawson is on the short list of people who will always be welcome there If everyone was like Jenny Lawson the world would be a better place Also a stranger surreal place with abundant opportunities to attend raccoon rodeosThis is the best book I've read all yearSo Is this book worth your time? Yes Absolutely yes It's finally out and if you don't buy it and read it you are not living the best possible life

    my love for jenny lawson is NOT AT ALL creepy jenny lawson i wanna make you blts and braid your hair i am really shitty at braiding and my fingers will be covered in mayonnaise after making you all those blts so it will probably get a little messy and crazy but it's the thought that counts and since your book is basically a manifesto of owning one's messy and crazy bits and alchemizing them into comedy gold we should be all setthis book is a little personal that Let's Pretend This Never Happened A Mostly True Memoir; a little serious that's not to say i didn't bust out into indelicate snort guffaws many times while reading this because i totally did but in between all the laughter there's a lot of brave and honest stuff about managing mental and physical illness through anecdotes that are not at all humorous and none of that is a criticism i think it's astonishing how well she is able to write about her own obstacles; how clear eyed she is in describing the debilitating emotional symptoms of disorders impossible for people who aren't fellow sufferers to understand while offering a platitude free example to those who are that yeah you can live through this shit she'd probably hate it that i'm calling her brave but she is it's not easy to share this much of yourself and unleash it into the world to complete strangers and while i'm not on any medication nor am i seeing a therapist i still recognize a lot of myself in her stories and maybe i'm not brave enough to elaborate on that or maybe i'm just not comfortable suggesting that my problems are in any way comparable to hers but i know a lot of people who will see themselves in this book and that it will help them and make them laugh in eual parts and i'm sure doctors would disagree with the adage that laughter is the best medicine but it's not the worst the worst is that antidepressant they advertise on teevee with the disclaimer about its side effects including depression and thoughts of suicide because how is that helpful?so while it feels strange to say about a book so full of voodoo vaginas dead raccoon rodeos and japanese toilets this is an important book it just also happens to be really fucking funnyher late night musings If you put a bunch of chameleons on top of a bunch of chameleons on top of a bowl of Skittles what would happen? Is that science? Because if so I finally get why people want to do sciencethe wisdom she learned from her father You don't have to go to some special private school to be an artist Just look at the intricate beauty of cobwebs Spiders make them with their buttsher assessment of australia People warned us that everything in Australia wants to kill you but I think they're overreacting Australia doesn't want to kill you It's like an exclusive club for people who care very little about being alive Australia is really a lot like Texas if Texas were mad at you and drunk and maybe had a knifeand her scoffing at bruce springsteen dismissing him as obviously not the boss of scientific accuracyi mean he's probably never even conducted any chameleonskittles experimentsbut it's her tales about how unfit she is for the adult world that were the most dangerous to my tendency to laugh pee particularly the chapter that involves her meeting with maury the financial planner and victor aka mister jenny lawson Maury asked me if I had life insurance and I assured him that I didn't because I didn't want Victor to be arrested There was a pause in the conversationShe thinks life insurance is only taken out on people about to be murdered Victor explained stoicallypoor victor Victor sighed but frankly I'm not really sure what he'd expected It was my job to accidentally make money and his job to make sure that I didn't lose it when I was doing wobbly cartwheels in the parking lot after the bars closed Our roles had been clearly definedpoor victor We can come back to wills later How about retirement plans?Victor spent the next several minutes speaking in a combination of words and letters that I'm pretty sure means I have a retirement plan and it's uite goodMaury looked at me expectantlyI have a drawer I put change intoVictor put his head in his handsNot uarters though I use those for gumpoor victorall of this seems entirely sensible to me and familiar i don't like dealing with forms and grown up things either and i like gum and cartwheelspoor victor also has to deal with her clutter of dead animals her plans for a living cattax write off called the president and her delightfully irrepressible spirit as the book's cover model rory the raccoon sneaks up over victor's shoulder during business related skype callslucky victori want a rory photobombing me too oh dreams do come true i just fucking love her the parts where i can nod along her boredom with financial matters her fear not of flying but of getting to the plane her anxiety over small talk and hiding when the doorbell rings her love of cheese despite being lactose intolerant and also the parts where i may not be able to relate but i want to bake her a pie and try to make things better for her although it seems as though she is finding her strength all on her own You learn to appreciate the fact that what drives you is very different from what you're told should make you happy You learn that it's okay to prefer your personal idea of heaven live tweeting zombie movies from under a blanket of kittens rather than someone else's idea that famefortuneparties are the pinnacle we should all reach for And there's something surprisingly freeing about thatIt is an amazing gift to be able to recognize that the things that make you the happiest are so much easier to grasp than you thought There is such freedom in being able to celebrate and appreciate the uniue moments that recharge you and give you peace and joy Sure some people want red carpets and paparazzi Turns out I just want banana Popsicles dipped in Malibu rum It doesn't mean I'm a failure at appreciating the good things in life It means I'm successful in recognizing what the good things in life are for mebut this is a jenny lawson book and i'm not going to close a review with something sedate and rational like that should i uote a portion from her one night stand with a sleep clinic? or from the story containing the frantic exclamation I'VE SWALLOWED A LEPRECHAUN AND IT'S EATING ITS WAY OUT OF MY CHEST? or her realization that everything in the world either is or isn't pandas?no i will uote a passage from the appendix which in the jennyverse is located in the middle of the bookI realize that it's weird that this appendix is in the middle of the book instead of at the end where appendixes are supposed to be but it works better here and technically your appendix is in the middle of your body so it sort of makes sense Probably God had the same issue when Adam was like I don't want to sound ungrateful but it sort of hurts when I walk Is that normal? Is this thing on my foot a tumor? And God was like It's not a tumor That's your appendix Appendixes go at the end Read a book dude Then Adam was all Really? Because I don't want to second guess you but it seems like a design flaw Also that snake in the garden told me it doesn't even do anything And God shook his head and muttered Jesus that fucking snake is like TMZ And then Adam was like Who's Jesus? and God said No one yet It's just an idea I'm throwing around And then God zapped Adam's appendix off his foot and stuck it in Adam's midsection instead in case he decided to use it later But the next day Adam probably asked for a girlfriend and God was like It's gonna cost you a rib and Adam was all Don't I need those? Can't you just make her out of my appendix? And the snake popped out and hissed Seriously why are you so attached to this appendix idea? Don't those things occasionally explode for no reason whatsoever? and God was like THIS IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS JEFFERSON I'M STARTING TO UESTION WHY I EVEN MADE YOU And Adam was like Wait what? They explode? And God was all I'M NOT NEGOTIATING WITH YOU ADAM And that's why appendixes go in the middle and should probably be removedwhen i die i am leaving my body to jenny lawson and she can stuff it and do whatever she wants with it hopefully it will involve wingsmaggie gets into it sort of j law's not the only one who can make up wordscome to my blog

    This book made me literally laugh out loud several times while reading it There are so many hysterical stories in here and there were many times when I couldn't hold it together I will say that sometimes it felt like the author was really I mean REALLY pushing this whole I'M SUPER UIRKY angle to her stories it was hard to not see through that for me at times Regardless this was a very interesting read I can guarantee the fact that I'll be reading books by Jenny Lawson in the future

    Upfront I'm not very objective about this book because Jenny is someone I consider a friend although we've only met once I think and I'm a huge fan of her blog AND she blurbed my book But I wouldn't have asked her to blurb if I didn't love her stuff ergo it doesn't feel weird to say I loved this book So take that how you willThis review is based on an ARC too BTW Basically her original book is one of my faves I read it before I'd met her or even read much of her blog for the record and these new tales are just as witty and weird and fantastic as in her book debut You'll never feel ashamed of any aspect of yourself after you read this book Jenny makes it ok to be you whatever it is you feel that makes you weird or broken I love her for thatAlso I'd never be able to sleep in her house because of all the taxidermy

    Audiobook 30 day trial with audible I had no intentions of 'reading' this book I didn't reuest it from Netgalley as an early read but then I read several positive reviews one said its a 'must' read for everyone Plus friends told me 'memoirs' by the author themselves are good audiobook choices So what the heck free trial read The very beginning was great out walking I was ready to enjoy some laughswisdom and inspirationBUT SOONI became exhausted or bored with exaggerated stories Jenny's high pitch voice and sarcasm both were annoying The dialogue often felt forced or just plain silly I've had this audiobook less than a week I'll exchange it

    DNFI was so FURIOUSLY annoyed with this book If someone is interested in a free copy you can have mine I got to Chapter 19 and said hell with it Ramble ramble ramble Maybe I was expecting too much like her talking about her illness instead of shower curtains and her taxidermy animals or how she has every mental illness out there Everytime I thought there would be a serious discussion she went off and ranted about fainting at the site of white coats or germs or the airport She talked about nothingremember when Seinfeld and George decided to make a show about nothingexactly except this was worse Things come out of her without any thought which I found insulting at times maybe I'm taking it too personal Either wayI'm glad I never read the first I don't regret not finishing the 2nd and no way in hell will I read any others This author is one of those people who talks without thinking at all

    I’m having one of those rare days where I love people and all of the amazing wonder they’re capable of and if someone fucks that up for me I will stab them right in the face Jenny Lawson I AM GOING TO BE FURIOUSLY HAPPY OUT OF SHEER SPITE Jenny Lawson I've shamelessly let Rocket Raccoon carry this review space since last year and he garnered me 54 likes so thanks Rocket I'm sure he would approve of my blatant exploitation even though he's the one being exploited But enough is enough And really I'm sure Rory isn't too furiously happy either about having some other fabulous raccoon steal his thunder And now Rocket is going to be pissed I've called him a raccoon He doesn't like thatJenny Lawson aka The Bloggess is a wickedly delightful exhausting a bit scary kaleidoscopic array of frantic energy meets overwhelming anxieties and various anxiety disorders and sometimes debilitating depression This book is her true confession no holds barred everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask look inside her precious crazy head Jenny wouldn't mind me using the word crazy either; because she's taking crazy back She's taking it out of the dark broom closet where we store things we don't want to see or talk about and wearing the crazy badge with pride And why shouldn't she? Jenny along with countless others are survivors of their pain of their chemical imbalances of their terror and of their uncontrollable impulsesBecause not everyone survives My sister didn't Depression and mental illness is terrifying It's the disease we never talk about and as family and friends of sufferers we feel helpless in the face of it not knowing what to do or say or how to help Sometimes in our effort to help we're actually making things even harder setting up unreasonable expectations getting angry as if the person is acting this way on purpose just to piss us off I really really wish my sister and I had had this book before it became too late for her I'm not saying it would have changed the outcome but I know it would have changed how I talked to her and how I tried to help her I know it would have made her feel some solace some comfort that other people feel this crazy too and that it's not something you just get over And it would have made her laugh her big boisterous fuck you laugh In all her silliness and shenanigans and stunts aimed to make us laugh and keep herself furiously happy Jenny Lawson is doing something really important here She's humanizing depression and mental illness she's reaching out and making it relatable rather than something shameful and embarrassing It's brave and hopefully with shows like You're The Worst and Jared Padalecki's Always Keep Fighting campaign tackling the same difficult subject matter we've reached a beginning of an empathy and acceptance for mental illness that will become our new normal I can tell you that “Just cheer up” is almost universally looked at as the most unhelpful depression cure ever It’s pretty much the euivalent of telling someone who just had their legs amputated to “just walk it off” Some people don’t understand that for a lot of us mental illness is a severe chemical imbalance rather just having “a case of the Mondays” Those same well meaning people will tell me that I’m keeping myself from recovering because I really “just need to cheer up and smile” That’s when I consider chopping off their arms and then blaming them for not picking up their severed arms so they can take them to the hospital to get reattached I love that the cover looks like a blissed out meth crazed Rocket Raccoon Oh yeah Pardon my sueeing giffiness but it had to be done

    The manically happy raccoon amongst scattered glitter on the cover is the best part of this book I find very little humor in mental illness even when it's offered up by someone who doesn't seem to mind using her chronic depression and crippling anxiety as a vehicle to what she says are ridiculous stories I agree with her word ridiculous I guess it's good she can enjoy her mental illness I'm uite sure most others would not find this possibility very doable Is it wrong to feel this book might be insulting to people who are devastated by mental illness ?

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewJenny Lawson is a women I have never heard of but by the end of the book I realized that she is famous because people loved her writing Her writing is extremely honest funny and can be very inappropriate Jenny kept talking about dead animals and from reading about her first book I realized that she was a daughter of a taxidermist and that was why There were moments in this book that I wish I had read her first book first because I didn't understand why or what she was talking aboutFuriously Happy is a book written by Jenny to explore her lifelong battle with mental illness It talks about how she has crippling depression and anxiety that prevents her from being able to live a normal life Jenny tried explaining this by turning her mental illness stories into a hysterical ridiculous book My biggest struggle with this book was the randomness of it The stories weren't organized and most of the chapters were just random thoughts thrown onto a page She did have some funny moments but the lack of organization really bugged me I never felt the need to keep reading This book didn't capture my attention
