3.5 stars - It wasn't as funny as her last book "Furiously Happy". It was kind of half funny and half thoughtful/deep essays/ramblings. Also, WAY too many mentions of danger noodles (yes my phobia is to the point where I can't even say the word)!!!

Also, apparently I didn't understand the "why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side" joke either until I read this book!!!!! Omg

I’m so grateful that Jenny Lawson continues to share her gift of humor as she opens-up to readers about coping with depression and anxiety. Broken (in the best possible way) is an excellent addition to her previous books, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy. In Broken, Jenny keeps inquiring minds up to date with stories of hilarious life moments that had me laughing until I cried. She also shares very serious stories that drive home the real struggles of depression. I appreciate her transparency and advocacy for all people. It’s obvious that she is a very kind, caring person.

I own a signed copy of Broken that I picked up at my local independent bookstore, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, when this book was released. I chose to listen to the audiobook because Jenny narrates, and it’s the best possible way to enjoy her stories. At the end of the audiobook, she tells how she recorded the book in her closet because it was during the pandemic. I remember seeing her social posts about that experience. Speaking of social media, I follow Jenny on Instagram and X and love her posts. If you don’t already, give her a follow on your preferred platform.

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Jenny Lawson when she was on book tour for You Are Here: An Owner’s Manual for Dangerous Minds. My author event blog post is linked below for your convenience. She is just as wonderful in person!

I have photos and additional information that I'm unable to include here. It can all be found on my blog, in the link below.

I obtained this short essay/mini memoir about the author's attitude to Hallowe'en, the only holiday season she enjoys, as a free read on Amazon Prime. Some of it was amusing, such as the recollections of cheap or handmade costumes which I'm sure a lot of people can relate to (even if we didn't dress up for Hallowe'en, there were plenty of other school occasions where our Mums had to improvise with crepe paper, cardboard, poster paints and tinfoil), but other parts such as the arch asides to her editor about not being paid by the word came over as boring filler. I didn't enjoy it enough to seek out the author's other works, but it was an amusing short read so I am awarding it 3 stars.… (lisätietoja)

I really enjoy Jenny Lawson. Not many things I watch or read make me laugh full on out loud, but Jenny does it to me every time. My daughter has many similar "conditions" Jenny has and it was heartwarming and heart wrenching to me to hear her description of living it. So worth understanding those I love and support.
