Publisher's Summary

By combing through the journals that Hannah has kept for much of her life, this collection of narrative essays delivers a fuller picture of her life, her experiences, and the things she's figured out about family, faith, love, sexuality, self-worth, friendship and fame.

Revealing what makes Hannah tick, this sometimes cringeworthy, poignant collection of stories is sure to deliver plenty of Hannah's wit and wisdom and hopefully encourage you to try your hand at her patented brand of reckless optimism.

Personal note:

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.

Enjoy!

Love,Hannah

Heartfelt

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.

A book for the reckless optamists

As a ‘hartosexual’ I was more than interested in reading this book and I was happily shocked to how detailed and personal this was! Letting me as a listener/ reader delve into the emotions and thoughts of her past and present not to mention it was read by Hannah herself gave it a more personal and intimate feeling. If you read this be prepared to be shocked, to cry, to smile, to laugh and everything else you can think of at her stories of a life fully loaded! Please read this book new to her or not and it may (like me) give you an entirely new perspective on who you see on your screens and in your life as we all grow and change and all try live a ‘punderful’ life!

Superb!!!!

Thank you Hannah! Thank you so much. I love how unapologetic you are describing your life.
When I tell a story about mine I feel I'm constantly checking myself & apologising for the behaviours / words of other people towards me.
You have made me feel vindicated.
Our lives are so similar.
I have the same rel with my sister as you do with Naomi. We are like twins but SO different. We didn't speak for 4 years because we both needed to get to a place of healing. Like Naomi. But we are like glue now.
We are helping eachother through a very rough year right now.
I have terrible / non existent self esteem. I'm doing CBT & having this audio book on today helped me to stay focused and clean my house!!
Thank you for narrating the book yourself. I don't think anyone could have done you justice

Thank you xx

Captivating

I listened to this because I already knew and loved the writer as a Youtuber. It delves deeply into the hardships and struggles faced by Hanna Hart growing up with a Schizophrenic mother and really tugs the heartstrings. An incredible book, I would highly recommend to anyone.

Eloquently spoken, beautifully moving.

This was the first audio book I have listened to and having Hannah read it herself made it much more raw and relatable. Every chapter had intense detail that made it impossible to stop listening. Amazing, although triggering, Hannah is gifted with her words.

Inspiring autobiography

This book, while touching on some truly horrible experiences, leaves you feeling somewhat hopeful and inspired. Hannah Hart's constant optimism shines through despite the struggles detailed through out the book. As a youtube fan I was expecting a light and fluffy book but was handed something that provoked thought much deeper. An excellent read, finished it in two days.
