    When this book popped up on my library?s website I put my name down for it. I really love the show This is Us, like Kate as a character and liked Chrissy in interviews I seen with her. I liked that Chrissy narrated the audio book, there were times you could tell got to her, others th...

    I just started watching This is Us. When I saw that Chrissy Metz had a book out I was so curious about her. This book is written with such honesty yet in no way is she asking for pity or saying poor me. I loved that she talks to the reader. She would be such fun to meet in person. This...

    I'm so glad I read this book. I'm a huge fan of This Is Us and I think Chrissy Metz is a great actor. It was sad to read about her childhood and how much her family struggled. A father who abandoned the family and cared more about her brother and sister and then a step-father who abuse...

    I want to be friends with the author! I love her as an actress and she sure knows how to inspire a person in her writing. Many inspirational quotes of her own and others, with her own touch. I am so glad she became Kate because she was perfectly cast for the role! ...

    I knew that Chrissy had 81 cents in her bank account when she landed the role of Kate, but I knew nothing about her back story. And what a doozy it was! I hate to use the cliche "Rags to Riches" line, because she busted her butt to get where she is today. Hers is a story of perseveranc...

    So, I fricken' love This is Us. It's my favorite thing that's been on TV in a long time. So I was always going to be interested in picking up Chrissy Metz's book. But I was so surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. It was funny, witty, and totally page-turny. I loved the combinatio...

    An empowering, emotional read by a strong, inspiring woman. I can see this getting mixed reviews because it tows the line between memoir and self-help. The result is that it does neither very well. However I can see why Chrissy was motivated to write this... HER FAMILY IS CRAZY. Girl h...

    I love Chrissy Metz! I listened to this book narrated by her and loved every second. She is positive, funny and a total joy. She?s had some tough times but has a great outlook for moving forward in her life and relationships. ...

    Chrissy Metz stars on the NBC hit show, This is US as Kate Pearson, one of the triplets. If you have never seen this show, you don't need to have, to read this book, but I think you might afterwards. This book chronicles her life from when she was a young child to her life today after ...

    Chrissy Metz was an unknown actress until the TV show "This is Us" became a popular show and made her a successful actress. She writes of her childhood. Her father abandoned the family. Her mother struggled to make ends meet. She endures an abusive step-father who shames her for being ...

    I should start by saying that I don't believe that I was the target market for this book, especially after I had read the word "bay itch" written out a few times. I am old enough, and secure enough in myself, that I have no problem thinking about someone as a bitch, and educated enough...

    I listened to this audiobook yesterday on my long drive. It was so great! I loved Chrissy's heart and strength and how down to earth she is. Listening to it I kept thinking "I want to be friends with this girl." Her positivity and the way she analyzes and learns from events in her past...

    I can?t even tell you how much I LOVED this very honest and inspiring book! Chrissy is Kate, Chrissy is me!! I related so much. Her scrapping and scraping to get where she is today yet not fully believing that she really deserves it! But she does, and I do too! We are all on a journe...

    She had a really rough childhood... Geez. She came out on top though, she's resilient and I enjoy her confidence. Interesting peek into the Hollywood world, auditioning and being an agent. Satisfying read. ...

    Oh dear. I didn't absolutely hate this, but man, this was some The Alchemist level crap. It has to be her favourite book, I swear. There was so much self-help, buzz-word claptrap in this: "putting deposits in my confidence bank", "standing in your space", "lean in", along with the beli...

    Chrissy is strong and outstanding woman. As usual, I never heard about her before her book, since I am rarely watching anything. I was very happy to find out who she is, reading about her past, and her rising to be a successful person, in a larger size than our media embraces. As sh...

    I enjoyed reading her book and having her share her story! She is truly an inspiration and her realness is what i can appreciate. She gave us her truth in this memoir. ...

    I'm the biggest fan of This Is Us, so I figured I'd love this book, too. But, of course, it's not written by the people who write Kate's story on the show; it's written by Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate Pearson. And while Chrissy is a fantastic actor, she's not an amazing writer. It was ...

    Chrissy goes way more into her personal life than just about any other celebrity memoir I've read, which is actually pretty admirable. She really bares her inner life. Some elements could have been shorter (her sections on dating kind of dragged) but her optimism and positivity can't b...

    I can be a sucker for a quick celeb memoir. Okay it?s probably only my second or third but I picked up this book because This Is Us. I?m unsure what to rate it, maybe 3.5 stars. I enjoyed reading about Chrissy?s life story and where she came from. It?s weird because it?s also...

    This is me 4.5? We start with her encounter with Opera which was hilarious. Then we follow Chrissy as she grows up and it was unique and saddening at times. We move to see her weight and how she was treated and it was awful to read and also made me want to throw away a scale forev...

    Isn't it great to find a book you just want to read all day! Well, This Is Me describes that book. Fortunately, I started it on a weekend and was able to read it all I wanted and wanted I did! It is a well written memoir of Chrissy Metz, one of the stars of the wonderful TV show, This ...

    This book is very empowering, especially for women. Chrissy Metz does a great job inspiring others to be themselves. Her story is very encouraging and reminds us that we are enough just the way we are. ...

    Critically-acclaimed actress Chrissy Metz, who rose to fame playing Kate Pearson in the NBC hit drama series This Is Us, has penned a compelling debut memoir. Metz writes with the candor and immediacy of a good friend who has come over for a chat. A witty, poignant and engaging read, t...
