Those who know me, know that I love Jenny Lawson aka The Bloggess. I find her whimsical and ludicrous and her stories turn me into a giggling pre-teen. Lawson has an amazing gift of sharing both light and dark stories with humor. We commiserate with her, we laugh with her, but we don't pity her.
Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson's first book, had a lighter vibe to it. It was a general look-how-crazy-my-life-is book, and it was delightful. Furiously Happy has a more serious subject matter of depression and anxiety; however, the book does not lose the whimsy that we read in Lawson's first book. I too suffer from these disorders, its incredibly difficult to explain how I feel to people, but now I have a book to point them too.
