Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2016
…and that’s what FURIOUSLY HAPPY is about. It’s about taking those moments when things are fine and making them amazing, because moments are what make us who we are, and they’re the same moments we take into battle with us when our brains declare war on our very existence.”
I absolutely needed this book in my life. Like Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Jenny takes what it means to have a wide variety of mental illness and makes having those mental illnesses OKAY. And funny. She let’s you know it’s okay to love yourself even when the darkness surrounds you and you can’t possibly feel like you can go on. And she tells hilarious quips of a voodoo vagina, her lady garden, a taxidermied giraffe head, and murderous possums.
I highly recommend her work. She is up front and honest and very very real. I’d also follow her blog if I were you. Because everyone needs Jenny in their life.
Plus the cover has Rory, the roadkill amputee that she sometimes puts on the backs of her cats for an impromptu cat rodeo. And he has a furiously happy smile.
