Read We are Never Meeting in Real Life. Online Free - Sometimes you just have to laugh, even when life is a dumpster fire. With We Are Never Meeting in Real Life., "bitches gotta eat" blogger and comedian Samantha Irby turns the serio-comic essay into an art form. Whether talking about how her difficult childhood has led to a problem in making "adult" budgets, explaining why she should be the new Bachelorette--she's "35-ish, but could easily pass for 60-something"--detailing a disastrous pilgrimage-slash-romantic-vacation to Nashville to scatter her estranged father's ashes, sharing awkward sexual encounters, or dispensing advice on how to navigate friendships with former drinking buddies who are now suburban moms--hang in there for the Costco loot--she's as deft at poking fun at the ghosts of her past self as she is at capturing powerful emotional truths.

4.7 stars, all a-laugh while rounding up
Wow! If I weren’t reviewing this sort of officially, I would be shouting out happy expletives! But I feel like I must not go all R-rated.
Speaking of cuss words—a warning to all those who don’t appreciate them: there are A LOT of 4-letter words here. In fact...

Wonderful, honest, hilarious, brilliant, raw, and did I mention hilarious?
I am a big fan of memoirs, especially those written by women funnier than me, and this is one of the best I have read so far. I adore the way Samantha Irby's language flows, with her perfectly placed expletives; there is ju...

i read this book because it was free, blurbed by jenny lawson, and it had a cat on the cover, thus combining three of my favorite things.
i am not blog-savvy, so i’d never heard of the author before, but i needed a nonfiction title to read for this month, and i really really needed something funny...

Let’s just get things out of the way and address the pink elephant in the room. The title of this one alone almost gave me an out of body experience and most definitely had me saying . . . .
Then she added in a homeless-as-fuck looking...

I loved these essays.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a cat lady in want of cat pictures is going to buy your goddamn book if you slap a cat on it. Also, Yaa Gyasi's HOMEGOING was kicking my butt all over the place emotionally (yes, butts can be emoti...

I smiled and chuckled my way through this collection of essays. I love humorous essays, but this is the first time I’ve read a collection by a black author. There were differences, but I identified with a lot of what she talked about. We’re both from the north shore suburbs of Chicago, I’ve also...

I *love* Samantha Irby, like seriously love her.
Irby writes with so much honesty and bravery it kills me. Her books have destroyed me. They make me laugh AND cry. Actually as much as I loved Meaty, I think this one is even better. It's just as personal, funny, and poignant, but it's almost like...

3.5 rounded down
I'll be honest, I was mostly attracted by the adorable kitten on the cover. That and I've been in the mood for memoirs/essay collections recently. I'd never heard of Samantha Irby before, but found a lot of these essays incredibly relatable and funny, although I did find that this...
