Busy Philipps’ autobiographical audiobook offers the same unfiltered and candid storytelling that her Instagram followers have come to know and love, from growing up in Scottsdale, Arizona, and her painful and painfully funny teen years to her life as a working actress, mother, and famous best friend. Busy is the rare entertainer whose impressive arsenal of talents as an actress is equally matched by her storytelling ability, sense of humor, and sharp observations about life, love, and motherhood. Her conversational writing reminds us what we love about her on screens of all sizes.

I ended up listening to this book in two sittings. The title is so perfect because there are some definite painful and uncomfortable parts that hurt my heart (I was crying in the first hour), but so much of it is burst out laughing hilarious.

People may think they have a good sense of who Busy is from her Instagram stories, but this is on a much deeper and more honest level. And she drops some very relateable truths, and I ended up feeling a real kinship with her.

Her narration is excellent. There were single sentences that made me laugh so hard because of her delivery. This is definitely one of my favorite audiobook experiences.
