I was not familiar with the author, and the cover copy makes it seem like this is going to be another one of those books written by a blogger or celebrity that try very hard to be funny but don't say anything of substance. We're living in a world where the cycle of sexual abuse thrives and rape culture is considered a myth by too many. There's nothing new here, but I didn't really expect there to be. I appreciate the conversational tone and the topics discussed, but not much felt new or super engaging in terms of content or approach to content. There were no new ideas presented here and nothing you wouldn't know about her thoughts if you currently follow her on social media. She addresses the issue of reality tv and the consumers' indulgence in it; she addresses the issue of race and why other races ma What piqued my interest about this book is so many people to include celebrities were posting pictures of themselves posing with it on Instagram.
I recently read a rave review of Catch-22, which I still haven't read. My Review: Before being given this book, I was not aware that Luvvie was a blogger, and a talented one at that. Maybe I'm Judging You will be best appreciated by readers who already fans of Luvvie's blog. What dawned on me was how frequently I catch myself being annoyed and even downright repulsed by parents. Because there are too many people there who do not give an ounce of a shit about our well-being.
A truth serum tempered with the bite of laugh. I'm Judging You is her debut book of humorous essays that dissects our cultural obsessions and calls out bad behavior in our increasingly digital, connected lives. Most of her comedic timing just. Her anger at the way we act, herself included, is because she knows we can and should be better than this. The main reason I decided to pick the book up again was because of the Shonda Rhimes series that's coming. The more I thought about it, the more I realized I never— ever—would have clicked on that video.
As for the guy who cut me off? Saints and Aints, let us live life well and good, but please leave Brown Baby Jesus out of your shenanigans. To whom much is given, much is required, and I'd require that my much would be given nary an inch of fabric. I'm Judging You is truly a collection of essays - very loosely connected essays. I didn't even know who she was until Goodreads recommended her book since I liked Furiously Happy and this book sounded funny and interesting so I decided to read it. Supposedly, Luvvie's book will be that guide.
When I returned , I saw that this was available on Overdrive. The video lasted one minute and 13 seconds, and the woman watched every moment—every agonizing zoom-in on the candles—flicking away any text message that appeared. None of her insights are original. Or laughing all that much. As much as we want it to be, the Internet is not a safe space. She beamed at the screen, captivated by a pigtailed child leaning over a pink supermarket cake. It's a series of essays that are difficult be read back to back due to subject change which leaves little to no flow to the work.
There's nothing new here, but I didn't really expect there to be. She'll say something, seemingly move on and then go back and just rephrase what she had already said. The fact is, that sense of being monitored still governs my relationship with my parents and grandparents. I watched once online as she was arguing with a reporter over his reporting of the Nigerian presidential election. I appreciate the conversational tone and the topics discussed, but not much felt new or super engaging in terms of content or approach to content. This summarizes why it's hard to know when intellectuals are more interested in promoting themselves then the issues they write about.
I try to be good. I like her immensely for it, and I wish I could read I'm Judging You for the first time again. I was not familiar with the author, and the cover copy makes it seem like this is going to be another one of those books written by a blogger or celebrity that try very hard to be funny but don't say anything of substance. Sometimes we need to step outside ourselves and be reminded of our inner perceptions. Her transition from writing short pieces about current events into a full length book about general life topics must have been a little more difficult to write and out of her comfort zone and it kind of shows. I will write a full review closer to the publication date. What was the 8% disagreement? Whether you want a sarcastic t-shirt or a geeky t-shirt to embrace your inner nerd, CafePress has the tee you're looking for.
Too much moral crusading, not enough petty judginess. The made up words and their respective footnotes were downright stupid summagoat? It is the Do-Better Manual. I'm just grateful she has chosen to share her wisdom with the rest of us in this warm and witty book. This country started off all the way wrong and continued in the same fashion.
