Broken (in the best possible way)

"Treat yourself like you would your favorite pet. Plenty of fresh water, lots of rest, snuggles as needed, allow yourself naps." ~ 41%

As a fan of Jenny Lawson, I am familiar with her struggles with anxiety and depression. In new release, Broken, she shares her experience with treatment. It is told with brutal honesty and humor. Each essay is relatable to anyone with a chronic illness. 

My favorite part of Broken is "An Open Letter to My Insurance Company." I nodded my head in agreement so much that I almost got a crook in my neck. It spoke to my soul and will also speak to yours if ever had to call an insurance company for coverage, pre-approval or assistance with a claim. There are also light-hearted essays like ideas she would pitch to Shark Tank and how "awkwarding" brings us together.

"'Stet' is my favorite verb, and it is the dryer setting I live my life in." ~ 75%

I read each chapter with the sense that Jenny just gets it. She knows how it feels. Her stories are sometimes heartbreaking but always genuine. It is pleasure to read her memoirs in advance. Bookhearts, add this to your TBR and pre-order now!

Happy Early Pub Day, Jenny Lawson! Broken will be available Tuesday, April 6.
