Hello, my darlings! I am incredibly pleased to present Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded!
As a big fan of memoirs, I wanted to try my hand at writing about the events of my life that deserve a little more consideration than can be accomplished in 140 characters or a six-minute vlog. Now on the cusp of turning 30, I'm ready to expose some parts of my life that I haven't shared before. Before, it was all about privacy, process and time. And now the time has come! I'm ready to put myself out there for you. I'm a little nervous about all these vulnerable words going into the world, these tales about my love life, the wrestling I've done with faith, how I feel about sex and my family and myself. I've had a lot of trials, a lot of errors, but also a lot of passion. Here's the thing: I've always found comfort in the stories shared by others, so I hope my stories, now that I feel ready to tell them, will bring you some comfort, too.
And when you listen to this book, please remember: buffering is just the time it takes to process.

This is an incredible book full of light and darkness. The last feeling that stays for long after listening is hope. Hope for better.
I felt it was important that I heard all of this. What an experience it was.
People have told me that I am a heartless person who does not care about other people. I have believed them my whole life. I have never felt any attachment to my family or any other I have met. But it's been a rollercoaster of emotions when I heard your life. I truly felt happy when Hannah got laid and I was on the brink of tears when it ended. Thank you Hannah for showing me that even a sociopath like me can feel emotions. Love You Lots.
"Heartbreaking, hopeful, and honest"
Even if you're not familiar with Hannah Harts online presence, I still highly recommend this book.
She is an excellent storyteller -- both her writing and her narration. The book provides good insight into what it's like to grow up with a parent who has a mental illness and the impact it can have on a child and the adult they become.
I hadn't expected that aspect of her story, I'd thought it would focus more on her career or coming out as a lesbian but while those did play a part in the book, it was ultimately more about family and really drives home the message that you can never really know what someone else is going through.
I thought this book may be very self-indulgent and just another way for an Internet personality to make money but it has a lot in there to help people whose family are suffering with a mental illness. I have learnt a lot about the American health care system from this book and hope that it improves soon!
"If you think you know all is there is Hannah Hart..."
If for some reason you think you know everything about Hannah Hart then please read this. I've been an avid fan of Hannah's for a few years but hearing her discuss these stories of her childhood and religion and sexuality and everything she has been through, has just renewed my love and respect for her ever more! Holy crap, wow, she is an inspiration, she's an inspiration to women, she's an inspiration to the LGBTQ+ community but above and beyond (and what I mostly took for this book) that she is an inspiration to every human. To anyone who wants to give up, to anyone who doesn't feel good enough and to anyone who thinks there past as ruined them forever... what a women!! Thank you Hannah, thank you!!
The only way to give this a reasonable review is the listen and reflect. it is 'unputdownable' and such an insight into a world so alien yet so familiar.
"Honest and hartwarming (get it?)"
I have so much respect and love for Hannah. Thank you so much for sharing and giving light to such a sensitive subject. This book has inspired me in many ways, so much so it's hard to express. Thank you, Hannah, for continuing to spark hope in me and for striding to make the world a better place.
10 out of 10.
"moving and emotional brilliance."
made me laugh and cry, well mostly cry. but it is a brilliant and moving story worth hearing even if you don't know the author.
"Thank you Hannah"
This is such an honest and open narration. It's written/spoken with such heart, which I'm so grateful for - thank you for sharing! And no surprise, but you certainly have a knack for storytelling :)
Wow what an intense, harrowing, powerful, inspiring, empowering and optimistic life Hannah has led, and what a brilliant storyteller she is.
Having subscribed to Hannah Hart on Youtube for a few years now, it was a book that seemed a familiar face whilst searching for something to pass the time at work. I enjoying every minute it was very personal, very well read and clear and very interesting. What I took away from this book was gratitude. It was insightful to read where My Drunk Kitchen started and the journey along with it. ")
