Mini-Review: Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things, by Jenny Lawson

Genres: Non-Fiction, Memoir, Humor


Furiously Happy is a collection of stories from Jenny Lawson’s life and experiences with mental illness. I’ve been wanting to read Furiously Happy since it came out, but somehow I never got to. When I saw it in the airport on my way to my vacation I bought it immediately – and have zero regrets.

This book was such a fun, light read and yet it had such deep emotion and many relatable moments. I loved it very, very much and it was perfect for the trip – the short chapters made it easy to read just a little every few days. Laughing about mental illness should absolutely be a trend, as it makes you feel so much less alone and weird. Jenny Lawson is hilarious.

Highly recommend this one!

    • No, I don’t! I didn’t even remember she had a blog. I’ll look it up!

      I definitely need to read her other book, I was worried that it’s not quite as funny, but I’ve only heard good things about it!


      • Her blog is called The Bloggess — it’s great! Her other book is actually her first book and goes more into her life growing up, which was hilarious and very interesting.

        She actually posted on her social media & blog that she is trying to open up a book store in Texas where she lives. I can’t wait when that finally happens! 🙂

  1. This is one of my favorite books. It’s not only helped me with my own mental health struggles, but every time I read it I laugh until I cry. You should check out Jenny’s other book, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, if you haven’t already.
