Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

By about 30 pages in, Mollen has resorted twice to the “there are two types of “___s” gambit (in addition to simply calling others, “the type who”) and tried to shock-jock the reader’s pants off by declaring her anorexic temptations scarier than a concentration camp, comparing a bad romance to a “fiery plane crash into a tall building,” and deciding that a former boyfriend (unfindable on social media) killed himself. And she’s anorexic and bulimic in somewhat graphic detail. And she has a long way to go to becoming a current L.A. writer, actress, and (per the jacket copy) “one of the funniest women on Twitter.” She can be funny, but her shticks and tics are lazily apparent. And for her worldview (and memoir) to work, everyone she deals with has to be missing a bolt or two as well (e.g., “All the Best Men Are Either Gay, Married, or Your Therapist” and “Nobody Wants to Be Your Fucking Bridesmaid” and “You Were Molested”). She is hiply raunchy, raunchily hip; add her to that list and purchase according to demand. --Eloise Kinney

Review

“Jenny puts into words those thoughts you're ashamed to admit to your therapist, your dog, or even yourself. This outrageous book will have you laughing out loud and thanking god you aren't her husband.” ―CHELSEA HANDLER, New York Times bestselling author of Uganda Be Kidding Me

“Honest, hilarious, and a book I would highly recommend hiding from your daughter.” ―JIM GAFFIGAN, New York Times bestselling author of Dad Is Fat

“Jenny Mollen is a brilliant writer with balls of steel--this is the most honest, hilarious, and batsh*t insane memoir I've read in ages.” ―DIABLO CODY, New York Times bestselling author of Candy Girl

“In a town full of phonies, Jenny Mollen is the genuine article. With true candor and a biting sense of humor, she bravely lays her secrets bare in a memoir that's compulsively readable, undeniably smart, and breathtakingly funny. Take note, everyone, because Jenny Mollen is about to become the Next Big Thing!” ―JEN LANCASTER, New York Times bestselling author of The Tao of Martha and Bitter Is the New Black

“Jenny Mollen is basically telling women that it's okay to be crazy and to embrace their jealousy, paranoia and rage. This book is so funny--you'll laugh your ass off. I only hope my girlfriend doesn't read it.” ―JEFFREY ROSS, author of I Only Roast the Ones I Love

“You know when a friend tells you what they almost did, but came to their senses and didn't? Well, Jenny Mollen does it with gusto, and I can't get enough! You'll never believe how badly you'll want to meet her after reading her hilarious book.” ―JUDY GREER, author of I Don't Know What You Know Me From

“Yikes and wow. You will be horrified. You will be entertained. What you'll never be, as you read Jenny Mollen's memoir, is bored.” ―PATTON OSWALT, New York Times bestselling author of Zombie Spaceship Wasteland

“Jenny's type of fucked up is the kind I want to squish up and put in my bag and keep with me all the time--and now I can. Thanks, America.” ―KELLY OXFORD, New York Times bestselling author of Everything Is Perfect When You're a Liar

“Filth. If you like your ladies hot and your filth filthy, this is the book for you. Jenny is bitchy and body-obsessed, husband-obsessed, self-aggrandizing, and always amazing.” ―MICHAEL IAN BLACK, New York Times bestselling author of You're Not Doing It Right

“Jenny tells her stories with such raw honesty that even when she's behaving badly, you'll root for her. Also, you'll laugh your ass off. After reading this, I want to be her best friend but also I'm scared of her.” ―SARAH COLONNA, New York Times bestselling author of Life As I Blow It

I really wanted to like this book, but guess what? I've read it. It's all her blogs from Playboy's Smoking Jacket. Jenny seems like she'd be so much fun to know, but after the eighth story of her narcissism and "quirkiness", mixed in with what a stalker she appears to be, I got over it real quick. Just google her name along with the Smoking a Jacket and you've saved yourself ten bucks.

I really wanted to like this. It was recommended by Jen Lancaster and I love Jen so i was expecting to love this but no such luck. I suspect half of the stories stories was either made up or vastly exaggerated,but only because i refuse to believe that people can be so self absorbed.

Odd book. Jenny Mollen is the poster child of how not to raise your child. Parts were amusing while other parts seemed mean and bizarre. Clearly not someone I want to know. Her husband has a long life in front of him with her, or at least it will seem long.

Let me start by saying that I have never written a review before. I love reading and I have a good sense of humor. I love witty and sarcastic humor. That said, saying that you would be skinnier if you had AIDS and that you are mentally choosing your AIDS outfits is disgusting. Trying to make molestation humorous and saying that you are offended because no one molested you is reprehensible. "Sh's not hot enough to be molested and I totally am." The entire molestation chapter is mind-boggling. I have no words. Save your money. The Ben Wa balls story was the only funny part of the book and definitely not worth the time or money you will waste on this narcissistic journal (I refuse to call it a book).

Completely worthless and the book is lame too! Just a horrible person. Who hopes they get raped or molested because they need more attention in their lives. I truly hope she finds all the negative drama she is looking for. Someone must have paid a lot of money to get this published for her. I can't tolerate people who cause problems and drama for others just because they are boring and their life is boring because no one wants to spend any time with them. Waste of time and waste of my mind!

Jenny Mollen is hilarious. Her crazy tales seem desperate at times but she OWNS it. She is self aware at how insane our minds and actions can be, and many of the chapters are frightenly relatable.
Very entertaining book. Finished it in a day because it was so addicting.

I purchased this book because I'm a huge fan of Chelsea Handler, and she endorsed this book. If you are looking for something funny, refreshing, and totally unexpected YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK. I laughed out loud on many occasions, and it's a book I'd read anytime I needed a laugh. I would recommend this book to anyone with a great sense of humor that's looking to be thoroughly entertained!
