    The only thing I?ve ever seen Busy Philipps in is Dawson?s Creek (Pacey forever ?), but I?m a sucker for celebrity memoirs, so I grabbed this from the library and promptly started following her on IG. I adored the conversational tone. Some folks might not like that approach, b...

    3.5 stars. I listened the this on audio which I think made it even better as the author narrates it herself and I felt like her stories really came alive when she told them. Her impersonating her mother was the best. I found the parts about the auditions and behind the scenes tv show d...

    I love this book so much ??? Honestly, this isn?t your average memoir. She takes you through the highs and lows of her life, no holding back. ...

    I was surprised by how much I ended up enjoying this book. I never reach for celebrity memoirs, less out of literary snobbery and more because the celebrities I'm invested in do not usually write memoirs. But I am a fan of Busy Philipps so I thought why not, let's give it a try. Bus...

    You know how sometimes you read a celebrity memoir and think, "Wow, who knew this person was such a good writer?" and then a minute later you think, "I hope their ghostwriter got a fat check." That is not something you'll think while reading Busy Philipps' book, which is going to eithe...

    2 / 5 Dang. I LIKE Busy Phillips a lot. I love Freaks and Geeks, I like Dawson?s Creek, and I like her Instagram stories. I too thought her friendship w/ Michelle Williams was ~goals~. But this book, woof. First, it?s a celebrity memoir. And I should not have been fooled int...

    I've been a fan of Busy since Cougar Town (Pennnnnnnnnnny Cannnnnnn!) and I've stalked her on Instagram because HOW COULD I NOT? I've watched her new late night talk show a few times (it's a little rough but her unique personality still shines through and I'm excited to see it get bett...

    I'm really glad I picked up this book! Busy Phillips seemed very real and honest. But, every time I read a celebrity's memoir, I love the first half and get bored with the second half...this book was no different. That being said, I really did enjoy this book. I've already added ha...

    DRC received through Edelweiss Well, this was uncomfortable. Busy Philipps is one angry woman! She is not very famous for her great acting, but lately her Instagram stories have become more popular. She gives a glimpse of her everyday struggles and it usually is very relatable and f...

    I loved Freaks and Geeks. I didn't like this book as much as I thought I would, even though I think Philipps is fine as an actress. I can't really explain what's off for me, just not one of my favorite reads. I am, however, not surprised that James Franco is a dick. ...

    This is the celebrity memoir you DREAM of reading--candid, engrossing, relatable. Busy is as entertaining and honest on the page as she is on screen. ...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ I grabbed this because I?m always searching for something easy to listen to during my commute. Confession time: I never watched Freaks and Geeks (and neither did any of you because it was cancelled for lack of viewers d...

    "I have anxiety attacks and eat nachos and drink margaritas and live my life and live my life and live my life and live my life. For me. For you. To entertain you. To be seen. It's the only thing I've ever wanted." I enjoyed Busy's book very much! She's a fun and amusing person, and...

    It so pains me to not give this book 5 stars, but I'm going to be honest about it because I think Busy would appreciate that. Mostly, I feel this book made me not relate to her in a way that's so different from watching her on Instagram. Like, the number of videos I have screengrabbbed...

    This book is just a long list of reasons why it is hard to be a wealthy white actress. Highlights include: - Busy listing all of the times she?s been mansplained to, then without a drop of irony explains that Hollywood actresses don?t get maternity leave. For someone who bragge...

    So I know that Busy Philipps isn?t known for her dramatic acting roles but BOY IS SHE DRAMATIC. This memoir tells it likes it is, it?s very much Busy?s voice. If you can get past all the high school dramatics than this could be a fairly entertaining read. There?s plenty of the ...

    I?m not sure exactly how I felt about this book. I finished it, and did want to keep reading it, but I?m not sure I actually liked it. So Busy begins with stories of her as a young child and basically go through the order of her life. Her teenage years were crazy and she didn?t m...

    Busy Philips achieves an incredible feat in her memoirs: She manages to come across as both a batshit crayzee alcoholic and as a totally credible writer in her account of her oftentimes horrendous career as a Hollywood actress. The media have made a big deal of that awful episode wi...

    WOW. I expected to enjoy myself reading this because Busy?s such a likable and entertaining person, but I was truly blown away by how incredible this was. It had so much heart and depth and feeling and I felt like I was with her every step of the way. This is a shining example of wha...
