Furiously Happy – Jenny Lawson

Review From User :

Earlier this year, I was one of the lucky people Jenny sent an Advance Reading Copy of her newest book to.

The simple upshot I loved it. I loved it even more 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 praises.)

Still, 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 more time being furiously happy."

"I wish Jenny Lawson was my neighbor."

"This book is a good book and you should buy this book and read this book."

"When 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 world."

"When 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, more surreal place, with more abundant opportunities to attend raccoon rodeos."

"This is the best book I've read all year."

So. 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.
