Broken (in the best possible way), Jenny Lawson

I found Jenny on Twitter some years ago and then spent two days reading through her blog. Finding out she had published a few books was the icing on the cake. So when she announced a new book was forthcoming, I stalked NetGalley, waiting for it to arrive, in hopes I could get lucky enough to get it ahead of time.

There is something special about a woman brave enough to put herself out there. Jenny is honest and raw about her struggles with anxiety and depression. It feels good to have someone to relate to on so many things. My anxiety doesn’t let me comment on her blog posts too often or tweet at her how much something she has written has moved me, but I would like to think she knows.

It’s rare to find a book that can have you swing from emotional to laughing and then give you the feels not only in one chapter but throughout the entire book. From her passion for books to her love of her family, it shines through on every page. I often refer to her as my spirit animal because her voice often guides me when I need it most. This book is incredibly hopeful and is a book you don’t want to miss out on. Thank you, Henry Holt and Co, for sending this along.

Read and like this review on Goodreads and Bookbub.
