So funny and good and hard to put down, I loved it! I really only ever saw Busy on Freaks and Geeks, but she‘s hilarious! Very readable.
⭐️: 4.5/5

I don‘t normally read autobiographies, but I read or heard something recently that made me think I‘d like this one. Busy & I grew up in the same era of late 90‘s where apparently your parents don‘t know where you are or what you‘re up to. From there her life is quite a ride. I feel like she didn‘t hold back & this story is def in her words - all the ups & downs & in between. I‘m glad ‘she‘s doing her best‘. She deserves it. Busy is genuine.

Book #37: 🎧 Audiobook. So cool to learn more about Busy‘s experiences and perspectives. I‘ve known her mainly from Dawson‘s Creek and Freaks & Geeks. I wish she had talked more about HER (not Katie Holmes lol) experience on Dawson‘s Creek only because I love that show. I had no idea about her involvement in Blades of Glory. Her birth story was absolutely terrifying. I‘ve now added Cougar Town and Girls5eva to my watch list.

I liked this celebrity memoir. She's flawed, candid, and likable.

j.rye I really like Busy Phillips. She seems like she would be the best friend! 2y
TieDyeDude I know her mostly from the Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast, and I've heard good things about the book. I'll have to check it out 2y

I only knew Busy from Freaks and Geeks but I needed a companion on my drive to Boston and this was what my library offered. Fun to hear some of the gossipy tidbits. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

j.rye I love her! 😍 3y
Suet624 @j.rye I can see why! 3y
Megabooks Loved this book! 3y
BestDogDad I‘ve seen this book all over and I couldn‘t place where I knew her from until I saw your post! Of course - Freaks and Geeks! 3y

I honestly didn‘t know much about Busy Phillips other than she was on Cougartown and recently had a talk show but thought I‘d give this book a try. I‘d definitely recommend the audiobook as she reads it and of course did a great job. Just know the first half or so is about her childhood and some bad stuff she went through. It meanders a bit, but it was a fun, fast read.

Well, why is everyone just resigned to being miserable for the rest of their lives? No decision is permanent! The world may end tomirrow..., so may as well be happy right?

Id just assumed that was what marriage was: two people being midly miserable next to one another.

The South is hauntrd like that, though. Theres weird energy flying around.

She [Michele Williams] had books everywhere in her apartment. Stacks of them, against each wall. She was never not reading at least three at a time.

Well, I have a theory. There are certain people who are what I call sparkly humans. These are people who have things just happen for them or to them because other people see them and seemingly inexplicably wnat to help them.

And the story doesnt exist without this ending.

Last night, I had a dream that Busy Philipps interviewed @Meaw_catlady & I was super jealous/proud. I‘m not saying I should lay off social media before bed but...maybe I should lay off social media before bed? 🤷‍♀️😅

I loves this face paced quick read! I read it in her voice too. This book read almost like her diary in the earlier parts of her life but enjoyed getting to know her and felt like she was super relatable. It was funny, raw, real and snarky just like her.

This is what happens when you buy a book as a gift but need 45$ for free shipping. 😅 Bookoutlet you've done it again! Only problem is deciding where to start.. between these and my entire TBR bookshelf I already have. You can never have too many books right? 📚😍

OnlyYoo Omg I really want to read Bachelor Nation! I think it‘s wild learning more about behind the scenes! 3y
michellelav @OnlyYoo I'll let you know what I think when im done! I love the bachelor franchise im excited for that one! 3y
OnlyYoo I love it too! Although I really don‘t know if I‘ll see this season. I really wanted Mike or Tyler to be the next bachelor... 3y

What a great listen! Such raw and real emotion when she read her book. I've always liked her but it was great learning more about her life and all the things she's gone through. My favorite part was when she talked about 'sparkly people'. Love it so much! This world needs more sparkly people 🥰 #audiobook #love

Went to see Busy Philipps in conversation with Adam Scott for the paperback release of her book and got to take a pic with Adam Scott. I‘ve had a crush on him FOREVER so I‘m pretty sure this means we‘re dating now, right?

Tiffiney Was this in L.A.? I got an email regarding this event...almost went 😊 3y
Reggie He‘s totally yours, he‘s probably thinking of where to take you for dinner tonight, right now. Lol I loved him in that independent movie, think it‘s called Friends with Kids. 3y
Bookish_B @Tiffiney yes, it was 😊 you should have gone! It was fun and they went WAY over time because Busy is a total chatterbox. 3y

I was charmed by Busy on her talk show. Now I‘m in ❤️. You have to listen to the audio. You will laugh and cry when she does. I‘m sad this one is almost over :(

Yay for Spring Break and for reading! I am a fan of Busy Philipps, but I enjoyed this even more than I thought I would. As a 90s preteen/teen, I appreciated her own coming of age stories from that period. Even though hers include being ON Dawson‘s Creek, not watching it 😜

Listen as an audio book. I'm a huge fan of hers already so not surprised I enjoyed it. She is very raw and honest. Includes some juicy celeb stories. (Audio)
