Furiously Happy, Hardback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


"It's the difference between surviving life and living life. It's the difference between taking a shower and teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." Jenny Lawson - aka The Bloggess - returns with the follow-up to her bestselling memoir Let's Pretend This Never Happened, recounting stories from everyday family life in her inimitably frank, hilarious, bizarre and endearing way. She describes her battles with depression and anxiety and her quest to overcome them by saying yes to even the absurdist opportunities and making the good times gloriously good. For as Jenny says: 'You can't experience pain without also experiencing the baffling and ridiculous moments of being fiercely, unapologetically, intensely and (above all) furiously happy...' It's a philosophy that has - quite literally - saved her life.

Review by

Jenny Lawson's first book, 'Let's pretend that never happened', blew me away because I hadn't heard about her before. Since then I have been following her blog, so I was less surprised by her style this time.I hope Furiously Happy will find a huge audience.Favorite quote: "I am Furiously Happy. It's not a cure for mental illness ... it's a weapon, designed to counter it."
