    Rant Review From An Avid Broad City Viewer: I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson I was over the moon excited when I found this was out in the world and also (low-key) mad that I wasn't informed earlier of this release. Broad City was one of my highlights of September 2017, when ...

    I want to give this book to all of my friends. I want to encourage us to write the shit out because we all need therapists and none of us can afford them. In a world where everything is so damn performative, Abby's voice isn't clear, nor is it fresh: it's one of a rambling, borderline ...

    I sent the publisher a fangirl email (always with the "I'm a librarian" mention) and begged for an advanced copy of this book. To my surprise, it worked! I quickly read through this collection of essays by one of my favorite funny ladies and her writing does not disappoint. Which reall...

    Abbi Jacobson is cool, suave, and classy so it?s no surprise that her book is too. ...

    Confession time: I haven't watched Broad City (although it's been on my radar and I do want to watch; I'll probably binge pretty soon) and I accepted a pitch for this because Cheryl Strayed blurbed the cover. (And because I tend to love memoirs by funny women, regardless of my familiar...

    I love Broad City and Abbi is a great comedian. I listened to her read the audiobook and enjoyed it. From what I gathered, the overarching story is that Abbi goes on a road trip after her first big breakup. She goes on long tangents for most of the book, but keeps returning to the ...

    I never really watched Broad City, but I know of the show and did like what I watched. There are some parts of this book that I really loved. Reading about Abbi?s heartbreak was comforting, because I?m going through my own at this moment. Reading about the creation of Broad City an...

    I love Broad City and Abbi to start with and this was just an easy, fun read - essays written while on a solo road trip trying to figure out some personal stuff. Some chapters were REALLY good (finding comedy, meeting Ilana, filming Broad City) and some felt like filler. Overall, I'd o...

    Get the audio book. You won't regret it. Abbi tells her stories and short rants effortlessly. I felt that she was so relatable while discussing her inner conflicts and going through heartbreak. Going on a cross country road trip solo is bad ass in its own but I like that she took the t...

    Exactly the revitalizing read I needed! Humorous, engaging and self-reflective. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy from the publisher pre-release date, and I just devoured this in a few short sittings. Full review to come on the blog! ...

    Abbi needs Ilana. This was not great. ...

    A total delight! Equal parts poignant and funny, Abbi has a really cool perspective. ...

    Weird..but endearing. Abbi has a lot going on in her life. I mean, I guess that could be said about any young woman fighting her way towards her career goals and trying to deal with love, heartbreak, anxiety, depression, etc. But you really get the sense of how overwhelmed she feels...

    A bit scattered, a bit anxiety-producing, very relatable. During the moments in which she talked about having to plan out trips to places she's never been, allowing herself an extra thirty minutes, the anxiety of finding a parking spot, all that jazz and I'm like, "Yeah, I do that. Is ...

    i absolute love abbi and i try to support her any way i can, si when i heard she had a book coming out, i was HYPED. i have a very similar thought process to abbi?s so that really boosted my enjoyment of this book because i felt like i was catching everything she was throwing. i can ...

    I'm a big fan of break-up literature, and there's a lot to like here. Abbi's voice is funny and vulnerable, but something just didn't connect for me. I've read a lot of essay collections in the past couple years and this one isn't really on my favorites list? ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It felt like a conversation with a good friend that can be silly, vulnerable and profound all at the same time. I appreciated Abbi?s openness throughout the whole book and I was sad to finish it because I wanted more. I hope she continues to write more boo...

    A lovely, well-paced read. Such a special experience hearing some of Abbi?s vulnerabilities. Incredibly relatable, funny, and kind. ...

    Abbi is me and I am Abbi. ...

    Listening to Abbi's voice really pushed this into the 5-star arena. As a voice actress on top of her comedic presence, she is able to capture a lovely balance between vulnerability and humor. ...

    I just...really loved this. Tender and funny and smart. ...

    Being British and not watching a huge amount of TV meant that I had not had the opportunity to come across comedy writer and hilarious on-screen presence Abbi Jacobson up until this point. I am somehow always drawn to memoirs, personal accounts and musings on life so I was excited to g...

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book! It's hard to know what to expect from "celebrity" or "actor" memoirs. However, this is more of a travelogue than a memoir - there's lots of exposed inner monologue, there are drawings and lists interspersed throughout the prose, and the ...

    A perfectly fine, entertaining escape for my Thanksgiving traveling. As I suspected, it didn't read as much like a fully-fleshed-out collection of "essays, drawings, and other stuff" with a central narrative arch as it did a hodge-podge stream of consciousness/scrap book. I'm not upset...

    Have you ever experienced a break up? Do you know what heartache feels like? Have you ever had an experience that made you want to run away from your life even for a short amount of time so you don?t have to face the crippling emotions that are chasing you? Do you love Broad City? If...

    A very enjoyable, relatable, emotional, and funny mini-memoir from one of my favorite comedians and artists working today, Abbi Jacobson of Broad City. Stands out from the pack of obligatory "essay collections" from the likes of Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, etc., who, to me, showed in their...

    I didn't zip through this as quickly as I thought I would, which is an odd thing to say, I guess. The road trip bits that connect these essays are pretty skimmable, but when Jacobson digs into what it means to be a showrunner at her age or how being a lady boss (and not in the hashtag ...

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book! It's hard to know what to expect from "celebrity" or "actor" memoirs. However, this is more of a travelogue than a memoir - there's lots of exposed inner monologue, there are drawings and lists interspersed throughout the prose, and the ...

    A perfectly fine, entertaining escape for my Thanksgiving traveling. As I suspected, it didn't read as much like a fully-fleshed-out collection of "essays, drawings, and other stuff" with a central narrative arch as it did a hodge-podge stream of consciousness/scrap book. I'm not upset...

    Have you ever experienced a break up? Do you know what heartache feels like? Have you ever had an experience that made you want to run away from your life even for a short amount of time so you don?t have to face the crippling emotions that are chasing you? Do you love Broad City? If...

    A very enjoyable, relatable, emotional, and funny mini-memoir from one of my favorite comedians and artists working today, Abbi Jacobson of Broad City. Stands out from the pack of obligatory "essay collections" from the likes of Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, etc., who, to me, showed in their...

    I didn't zip through this as quickly as I thought I would, which is an odd thing to say, I guess. The road trip bits that connect these essays are pretty skimmable, but when Jacobson digs into what it means to be a showrunner at her age or how being a lady boss (and not in the hashtag ...

    broad city is one of my all time favorite shows. it?s smart, funny, and unique. it shows us what our twenties are supposed to be like. so it was only obvious that i would read one of the co-creators memoir. i cannot believe i?m giving this book a two star rating. i wanted to br...

    I picked this up at the library solely because I knew one of the Bookshelf staffers chose it for a shelf subscription, and this particular staffer has great taste. I also liked the cover. I didn't know who Abbi Jacobson was and I've never seen Broad City. But I loved the book! It's mos...

    I love Abbi Jacobson and her work, but this book was a bit uneven. It shines where she is most specific in her stories (I.e. visiting an aura reader in Sedona) where I am often laughing and crying in the same breath. When she is speaking in generalities about life on the road or after ...

    Rant Review From An Avid Broad City Viewer: I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson I was over the moon excited when I found this was out in the world and also (low-key) mad that I wasn't informed earlier of this release. Broad City was one of my highlights of September 2017, when ...

    I want to give this book to all of my friends. I want to encourage us to write the shit out because we all need therapists and none of us can afford them. In a world where everything is so damn performative, Abby's voice isn't clear, nor is it fresh: it's one of a rambling, borderline ...

    I sent the publisher a fangirl email (always with the "I'm a librarian" mention) and begged for an advanced copy of this book. To my surprise, it worked! I quickly read through this collection of essays by one of my favorite funny ladies and her writing does not disappoint. Which reall...

    Abbi Jacobson is cool, suave, and classy so it?s no surprise that her book is too. ...

    Confession time: I haven't watched Broad City (although it's been on my radar and I do want to watch; I'll probably binge pretty soon) and I accepted a pitch for this because Cheryl Strayed blurbed the cover. (And because I tend to love memoirs by funny women, regardless of my familiar...

    I love Broad City and Abbi is a great comedian. I listened to her read the audiobook and enjoyed it. From what I gathered, the overarching story is that Abbi goes on a road trip after her first big breakup. She goes on long tangents for most of the book, but keeps returning to the ...

    I never really watched Broad City, but I know of the show and did like what I watched. There are some parts of this book that I really loved. Reading about Abbi?s heartbreak was comforting, because I?m going through my own at this moment. Reading about the creation of Broad City an...

    I love Broad City and Abbi to start with and this was just an easy, fun read - essays written while on a solo road trip trying to figure out some personal stuff. Some chapters were REALLY good (finding comedy, meeting Ilana, filming Broad City) and some felt like filler. Overall, I'd o...

    Get the audio book. You won't regret it. Abbi tells her stories and short rants effortlessly. I felt that she was so relatable while discussing her inner conflicts and going through heartbreak. Going on a cross country road trip solo is bad ass in its own but I like that she took the t...

    Exactly the revitalizing read I needed! Humorous, engaging and self-reflective. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy from the publisher pre-release date, and I just devoured this in a few short sittings. Full review to come on the blog! ...

    Abbi needs Ilana. This was not great. ...

    A total delight! Equal parts poignant and funny, Abbi has a really cool perspective. ...

    Weird..but endearing. Abbi has a lot going on in her life. I mean, I guess that could be said about any young woman fighting her way towards her career goals and trying to deal with love, heartbreak, anxiety, depression, etc. But you really get the sense of how overwhelmed she feels...

    A bit scattered, a bit anxiety-producing, very relatable. During the moments in which she talked about having to plan out trips to places she's never been, allowing herself an extra thirty minutes, the anxiety of finding a parking spot, all that jazz and I'm like, "Yeah, I do that. Is ...

    i absolute love abbi and i try to support her any way i can, si when i heard she had a book coming out, i was HYPED. i have a very similar thought process to abbi?s so that really boosted my enjoyment of this book because i felt like i was catching everything she was throwing. i can ...

    I'm a big fan of break-up literature, and there's a lot to like here. Abbi's voice is funny and vulnerable, but something just didn't connect for me. I've read a lot of essay collections in the past couple years and this one isn't really on my favorites list? ...

    Rant Review From An Avid Broad City Viewer: I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson I was over the moon excited when I found this was out in the world and also (low-key) mad that I wasn't informed earlier of this release. Broad City was one of my highlights of September 2017, when ...

    I want to give this book to all of my friends. I want to encourage us to write the shit out because we all need therapists and none of us can afford them. In a world where everything is so damn performative, Abby's voice isn't clear, nor is it fresh: it's one of a rambling, borderline ...

    I sent the publisher a fangirl email (always with the "I'm a librarian" mention) and begged for an advanced copy of this book. To my surprise, it worked! I quickly read through this collection of essays by one of my favorite funny ladies and her writing does not disappoint. Which reall...

    Abbi Jacobson is cool, suave, and classy so it?s no surprise that her book is too. ...

    Confession time: I haven't watched Broad City (although it's been on my radar and I do want to watch; I'll probably binge pretty soon) and I accepted a pitch for this because Cheryl Strayed blurbed the cover. (And because I tend to love memoirs by funny women, regardless of my familiar...

    I love Broad City and Abbi is a great comedian. I listened to her read the audiobook and enjoyed it. From what I gathered, the overarching story is that Abbi goes on a road trip after her first big breakup. She goes on long tangents for most of the book, but keeps returning to the ...

    I never really watched Broad City, but I know of the show and did like what I watched. There are some parts of this book that I really loved. Reading about Abbi?s heartbreak was comforting, because I?m going through my own at this moment. Reading about the creation of Broad City an...

    I love Broad City and Abbi to start with and this was just an easy, fun read - essays written while on a solo road trip trying to figure out some personal stuff. Some chapters were REALLY good (finding comedy, meeting Ilana, filming Broad City) and some felt like filler. Overall, I'd o...

    Get the audio book. You won't regret it. Abbi tells her stories and short rants effortlessly. I felt that she was so relatable while discussing her inner conflicts and going through heartbreak. Going on a cross country road trip solo is bad ass in its own but I like that she took the t...

    Exactly the revitalizing read I needed! Humorous, engaging and self-reflective. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy from the publisher pre-release date, and I just devoured this in a few short sittings. Full review to come on the blog! ...

    A bit scattered, a bit anxiety-producing, very relatable. During the moments in which she talked about having to plan out trips to places she's never been, allowing herself an extra thirty minutes, the anxiety of finding a parking spot, all that jazz and I'm like, "Yeah, I do that. Is ...

    i absolute love abbi and i try to support her any way i can, si when i heard she had a book coming out, i was HYPED. i have a very similar thought process to abbi?s so that really boosted my enjoyment of this book because i felt like i was catching everything she was throwing. i can ...

    I'm a big fan of break-up literature, and there's a lot to like here. Abbi's voice is funny and vulnerable, but something just didn't connect for me. I've read a lot of essay collections in the past couple years and this one isn't really on my favorites list? ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It felt like a conversation with a good friend that can be silly, vulnerable and profound all at the same time. I appreciated Abbi?s openness throughout the whole book and I was sad to finish it because I wanted more. I hope she continues to write more boo...

    A lovely, well-paced read. Such a special experience hearing some of Abbi?s vulnerabilities. Incredibly relatable, funny, and kind. ...

    Abbi is me and I am Abbi. ...

    Listening to Abbi's voice really pushed this into the 5-star arena. As a voice actress on top of her comedic presence, she is able to capture a lovely balance between vulnerability and humor. ...

    I just...really loved this. Tender and funny and smart. ...

    Being British and not watching a huge amount of TV meant that I had not had the opportunity to come across comedy writer and hilarious on-screen presence Abbi Jacobson up until this point. I am somehow always drawn to memoirs, personal accounts and musings on life so I was excited to g...

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book! It's hard to know what to expect from "celebrity" or "actor" memoirs. However, this is more of a travelogue than a memoir - there's lots of exposed inner monologue, there are drawings and lists interspersed throughout the prose, and the ...

    A perfectly fine, entertaining escape for my Thanksgiving traveling. As I suspected, it didn't read as much like a fully-fleshed-out collection of "essays, drawings, and other stuff" with a central narrative arch as it did a hodge-podge stream of consciousness/scrap book. I'm not upset...

    Have you ever experienced a break up? Do you know what heartache feels like? Have you ever had an experience that made you want to run away from your life even for a short amount of time so you don?t have to face the crippling emotions that are chasing you? Do you love Broad City? If...

    A very enjoyable, relatable, emotional, and funny mini-memoir from one of my favorite comedians and artists working today, Abbi Jacobson of Broad City. Stands out from the pack of obligatory "essay collections" from the likes of Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, etc., who, to me, showed in their...

    I didn't zip through this as quickly as I thought I would, which is an odd thing to say, I guess. The road trip bits that connect these essays are pretty skimmable, but when Jacobson digs into what it means to be a showrunner at her age or how being a lady boss (and not in the hashtag ...

    broad city is one of my all time favorite shows. it?s smart, funny, and unique. it shows us what our twenties are supposed to be like. so it was only obvious that i would read one of the co-creators memoir. i cannot believe i?m giving this book a two star rating. i wanted to br...

    I picked this up at the library solely because I knew one of the Bookshelf staffers chose it for a shelf subscription, and this particular staffer has great taste. I also liked the cover. I didn't know who Abbi Jacobson was and I've never seen Broad City. But I loved the book! It's mos...

    I never really watched Broad City, but I know of the show and did like what I watched. There are some parts of this book that I really loved. Reading about Abbi?s heartbreak was comforting, because I?m going through my own at this moment. Reading about the creation of Broad City an...

    I love Broad City and Abbi to start with and this was just an easy, fun read - essays written while on a solo road trip trying to figure out some personal stuff. Some chapters were REALLY good (finding comedy, meeting Ilana, filming Broad City) and some felt like filler. Overall, I'd o...

    Get the audio book. You won't regret it. Abbi tells her stories and short rants effortlessly. I felt that she was so relatable while discussing her inner conflicts and going through heartbreak. Going on a cross country road trip solo is bad ass in its own but I like that she took the t...

    Exactly the revitalizing read I needed! Humorous, engaging and self-reflective. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy from the publisher pre-release date, and I just devoured this in a few short sittings. Full review to come on the blog! ...

    Abbi needs Ilana. This was not great. ...

    A total delight! Equal parts poignant and funny, Abbi has a really cool perspective. ...

    Weird..but endearing. Abbi has a lot going on in her life. I mean, I guess that could be said about any young woman fighting her way towards her career goals and trying to deal with love, heartbreak, anxiety, depression, etc. But you really get the sense of how overwhelmed she feels...

    A bit scattered, a bit anxiety-producing, very relatable. During the moments in which she talked about having to plan out trips to places she's never been, allowing herself an extra thirty minutes, the anxiety of finding a parking spot, all that jazz and I'm like, "Yeah, I do that. Is ...

    i absolute love abbi and i try to support her any way i can, si when i heard she had a book coming out, i was HYPED. i have a very similar thought process to abbi?s so that really boosted my enjoyment of this book because i felt like i was catching everything she was throwing. i can ...

    I'm a big fan of break-up literature, and there's a lot to like here. Abbi's voice is funny and vulnerable, but something just didn't connect for me. I've read a lot of essay collections in the past couple years and this one isn't really on my favorites list? ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It felt like a conversation with a good friend that can be silly, vulnerable and profound all at the same time. I appreciated Abbi?s openness throughout the whole book and I was sad to finish it because I wanted more. I hope she continues to write more boo...

    A lovely, well-paced read. Such a special experience hearing some of Abbi?s vulnerabilities. Incredibly relatable, funny, and kind. ...

    Rant Review From An Avid Broad City Viewer: I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson I was over the moon excited when I found this was out in the world and also (low-key) mad that I wasn't informed earlier of this release. Broad City was one of my highlights of September 2017, when ...

    I want to give this book to all of my friends. I want to encourage us to write the shit out because we all need therapists and none of us can afford them. In a world where everything is so damn performative, Abby's voice isn't clear, nor is it fresh: it's one of a rambling, borderline ...

    I sent the publisher a fangirl email (always with the "I'm a librarian" mention) and begged for an advanced copy of this book. To my surprise, it worked! I quickly read through this collection of essays by one of my favorite funny ladies and her writing does not disappoint. Which reall...

    Abbi Jacobson is cool, suave, and classy so it?s no surprise that her book is too. ...

    Abbi is me and I am Abbi. ...

    Listening to Abbi's voice really pushed this into the 5-star arena. As a voice actress on top of her comedic presence, she is able to capture a lovely balance between vulnerability and humor. ...

    I just...really loved this. Tender and funny and smart. ...

    Being British and not watching a huge amount of TV meant that I had not had the opportunity to come across comedy writer and hilarious on-screen presence Abbi Jacobson up until this point. I am somehow always drawn to memoirs, personal accounts and musings on life so I was excited to g...

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book! It's hard to know what to expect from "celebrity" or "actor" memoirs. However, this is more of a travelogue than a memoir - there's lots of exposed inner monologue, there are drawings and lists interspersed throughout the prose, and the ...

    A perfectly fine, entertaining escape for my Thanksgiving traveling. As I suspected, it didn't read as much like a fully-fleshed-out collection of "essays, drawings, and other stuff" with a central narrative arch as it did a hodge-podge stream of consciousness/scrap book. I'm not upset...

    Have you ever experienced a break up? Do you know what heartache feels like? Have you ever had an experience that made you want to run away from your life even for a short amount of time so you don?t have to face the crippling emotions that are chasing you? Do you love Broad City? If...

    A very enjoyable, relatable, emotional, and funny mini-memoir from one of my favorite comedians and artists working today, Abbi Jacobson of Broad City. Stands out from the pack of obligatory "essay collections" from the likes of Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, etc., who, to me, showed in their...

    I didn't zip through this as quickly as I thought I would, which is an odd thing to say, I guess. The road trip bits that connect these essays are pretty skimmable, but when Jacobson digs into what it means to be a showrunner at her age or how being a lady boss (and not in the hashtag ...

    broad city is one of my all time favorite shows. it?s smart, funny, and unique. it shows us what our twenties are supposed to be like. so it was only obvious that i would read one of the co-creators memoir. i cannot believe i?m giving this book a two star rating. i wanted to br...
