Publisher's Summary

'I'm just a nitwit girl who's sort of stumbling through life learning that we all have our own roads to walk - but that it's still valuable, and rather lovely, to hear about other people's journeys....'

A warm, illuminating memoir full of wit and wisdom that doubles up as a life guide for millennials - by Irish YouTuber Melanie Murphy. Growing up in an online age, becoming an Internet sensation with half a million followers on her YouTube channel, Irish girl Melanie Murphy's journey has been far from ordinary.

Here, in her first audiobook, she shares the ups and downs of her life. From dealing with online bullying to living with anxiety and eating disorders to coping with acne and coming to terms with her sexuality, Melanie shows us how through difficult times we can learn the most about ourselves. And that by learning to value and love ourselves, we can overcome whatever life throws at us.

Like Honey to my ears.

I've been following her channel for a while, hence why I decided to pick up her book. Her voice was so familiar that most of the time it felt like we were together in some coffee shop, chatting about life.

Highly recommend!!!

I'm a fan of Melanie Murphy's YouTube channel and got excited about this book. Honestly, this was the first audible book I finished. I have to wake up early for my job, but listening to Melanie narrate about her life struggles with humor and what she learned gave me something to look forward to each day while driving. As a bisexual, I applaud her explanation about the dilemma of not being taken seriously as a bi. It is extremely rare to see positive bi representation in the media, fortunately this is one of them.

A must read for girls in their 20s!

loved this book! melanie's voice is so soothing to listen to. in my opinion this is a great read for girls in their 20s as Melanie is refreshingly open and honest about all of her millennial struggles ranging from acne, depression, social media, dating, sexuality, and more. i found her stories super relatable and her spot on analogies made me laugh out loud. i felt like i was listening to a best friend. her positive take on everything her life experiences have taught her so far is super inspiring and will leave you feeling optimistic about the bumps along the way.

Loved it

I usually don't ever read YouTubers' books, but i knew from watching Melanie's YouTube channel for over 2-3 years that she had some very interesting life experiences, is very well spoken and funny and has something meaningful to say. For all her young years she has had many life lessons and is a wise young lady. I was listening to the book every night before bed on my short vacation and thoroughly enjoyed it, it was almost like listening to a close friend of mine. On the one hand it's a very light and entertaining read/listen and on the other hand there were many topics that'd provoked contemplation on my part regarding my own life. All in all I recommend her book. Way to go Mel! 💚

Absolutely bloody fantastic!!!

I didn't really know what to expect when I pre-ordered this book, I'm a newer viewer of Melanie's but absolutely LOVE all of the videos I've seen so far! In saying that, any expectation I did have was blown away!! I learned so much from this book and it was written so well and so witty! I cried and broke my heart laughing, true Irish girl with Irish humour!! Read amazingly too! I loved every minute!!! You MUST by this book and listen to it immediately!! I am so grateful to have listened to it :) Thank you Melanie!

Amazing book, amazing Woman

I adore this book and went to the book signing in London and the writer is honestly so genuine and lovely.
This book is so well written and set out and I don't think you just have to be a fan of Melanies to read this.
It touches on a lot of topics such as Eating disorders, the internet, love/dating, body dismorphia, family life, social media, sex etc.
Really recommend you read this!!

One of the best books I’ve ever read and listened to.

I laughed, cried and learnt such a lot. I couldn’t put the book down. Thank you so so much Melanie for writing/sharing Fully Functioning Human (Almost) with us, very grateful. You are an amazing, unique and talented writer.

Life-affirming

Holy moly, I loved it. The author is such a warm person that it translates into the book. I took a lot of notes and will be coming back for more wisdom.

PS I listened to the ending on a bus, which resulted in ugly public sobbing. Thanks Mel<3

I now love Melanie even more

Warm, entertaining and heart wrenching at the same time. I've learnt things I never thought I would about Melanie. I've cried, laughed and had my mind fed throughout this book. Highly recommend.

LOVED THIS BOOK!

I have been following Melanie on YouTube for years now, she is the role model this generation needs. This was genuinely valuable, relatable and insightful. These words felt like they came from the big sister I never had! Thank you for sharing your life with us Melanie, and if you're reading this, lots of love from New Zealand 💚
