Winner of the 2017 Audie Award for Humor"A truth-riot of a book!" (Shonda Rhimes)
Comedian, activist, and hugely popular culture blogger at AwesomelyLuvvie.com Luvvie Ajayi serves up necessary advice for the masses in this hilarious book of essays.
With over 500,000 readers a month at her enormously popular blog, AwesomelyLuvvie.com, Luvvie Ajayi is a go-to source for smart takes on pop culture. I'm Judging You is her debut book of humorous essays that dissects our cultural obsessions and calls out bad behavior in our increasingly digital, connected lives. It passes on lessons and side-eyes on life, social media, culture, and fame, from addressing those terrible friends we all have, to serious discussions of race and media representation, to what to do about your fool cousin sharing casket pictures from Grandma's wake on Facebook.
With a lighthearted, razor sharp wit and a unique perspective, I'm Judging You is the handbook the world needs, doling out the hard truths and a road map for bringing some "act right" into our lives, social media, and popular culture. It is the Do-Better Manual.
This book was like hanging out with my friend. I found myself nodding and clapping, inspired and jovial. I can't wait to buy a physical copy of this book so I can share it with EVERYONE!

Would you listen to I'm Judging You again? Why?
Yes! The perspectives that Luvvie gave are worth listening to again. This book can serve as a reference to have on deck whenever I judge somebody or catch myself doing the things she talked about. So much insight in a non-finger shaking grandma way.

Overall the book was good if you are interested in hearing all that's wrong with people. ( that's what this book is all about)
It was well thought out and categorized which was great. I honestly only read it because of my book club and I generally don't read books like this but I digress.
It wasn't a page turner for me so thank God for Audible and long commutes.
I do side eye many of the things she points out so essentially this book expressed what most people feel others need to stop doing.

I laughed from intro to epilogue. The author is perfect narrating with her comedic made up words and real life stories.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This book was good and there were definitely some laugh out loud moments. If you're a fan of her blog then you will like this book. They're similar writing styles.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I love that the author narrated her own story but, i felt like sometimes she wasn't speaking clearly.
Was I'm Judging You worth the listening time?
Of course. I did feel a bit long at times.

I hesitated on getting this book, but I did. I think one should read the book as opposed to listening to it. This is her first narration -so hopefully she will improve. Luvvie is hilarious in print but not on audio.

...but i must sound the *corny jokes alert*
besides the occasional corny jokes which were like speed bumps on a highway, this book was such a good read/listen. Luvvie dealt with contemporary social issues on our minds without any byte of chill. This book will be your inner "side eye" when you're about to commit the typical social (and social media) gaffes.
Thanks for speaking out Luvvie.

I found it a little here there and everywhere and a little too intense on some parts and she read too fast. I may have to listen again.
The only negative thing I can say about this audiobook is that it ended! I hope this is the first of many books by Luvvie. Raw, funny and real. Truly brilliant!
Hilarious, sobering and inspirational. A thoroughly enjoyable read. Well done Luvvie. O ma kare o!
I was brought here by Evelyn from the Internets and to her I want to say thank you. This book changed the whole game! From start to finish it was giving me LIFE!! As a Nigerian who moved to the UK when I was 3 I can empathise with some of the things Luvie said, and can further confirm the greatness of africans! I really just want to say that I LOVED this book and would recommend it to EVERYONE!!
Ps your shade is the best thing since jollof rice and chicken 😂
Luvvie, you keep on judging sister, I agree with 97%, just not on anal bleaching.
