Broken (in the Best Possible Way) by Jenny Lawson
Jenny Lawson’s book Broken is a must-read for anyone who has ever experienced depression or knows someone who currently does. With her unique blend of brutal honesty and humor, Jenny shares her journey through transcranial magnetic stimulation to help treat her drug-resistant depression. But the book isn’t just about depression. It’s a collection of relatable and hilarious anecdotes about life.
In “An Open Letter to My Insurance Company,” Jenny speaks out about the difficulties of dealing with insurance claims, a topic that will resonate with many readers—myself included.
She also shares unforgettable experiences, such as her vacuum cleaner almost burning down her house and why she can NEVER go back to the post office. I read the post office chapter to my mom, and I don’t think she’ll ever look at me the same again!!!
I truly can’t recommend this book enough. 5/5 stars!
Someone once told me that the difference between introverts and extroverts is that introverts recharge by being alone (like any normal person) and extroverts recharge by being with others (like vampires).Jenny Lawson, Broken
If you’re giving Broken (in the Best Possible Way) as a gift, here are a few things to consider:
The vibes are unbelievably hilarious, sassy, emotional, informative, and hopeful with a fast pace.
It’s the perfect book for anyone who processes hardships through humor, who appreciates good old marriage banter, who loses items constantly (perhaps shoes?!), and who just wants to know they’re not alone in this crazy thing we call life.
Permission to judge a book by its cover!
If you’ve been reading Jenny Lawson’s work for any length of time, you’re probably well aware of her use of taxidermy for her covers. I’m smitten with them all, including these two editions of Broken. Many thanks to @vicireads and @jaclyncrupi for their gorgeous Bookstagram stylings!
