I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities, and Other Stuff Reviews
I just...really loved this. Tender and funny and smart.
Exactly the revitalizing read I needed! Humorous, engaging and self-reflective. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy from the publisher pre-release date, and I just devoured this in a few short sittings. Full review to come on the blog!
I want to give this book to all of my friends. I want to encourage us to write the shit out because we all need therapists and none of us can afford them. In a world where everything is so damn performative, Abby's voice isn't clear, nor is it fresh: it's one of a rambling, borderline obsessive overthinker.

WHO HURT ABBI SHE IS P E R F E C T
I love Broad City and Abbi is a great comedian. I listened to her read the audiobook and enjoyed it.

Some books increase in goodness because they come into your life right when you need them most. I needed this book right now.
Abbi has a lot going on in her life. I mean, I guess that could be said about any young woman fighting her way towards her career goals and trying to deal with love, heartbreak, anxiety, depression, etc. But you really get the sense of how overwhelmed she feels in these "essays"/"journals" where she's just driving around trying to seek peace in a variety of places.
Abbi seems a lot like her character in Broad City though she says she differs in the sense that she's an introv ...more
Rant Review From An Avid Broad City Viewer: I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson
I was over the moon excited when I found this was out in the world and also (low-key) mad that I wasn't informed earlier of this release. Broad City was one of my highlights of September 2017, when I first discovered and watched the series with the release of season four, and featured my commentary and all the details on the show in my wrap up of the month. In hindsight, I guess some things are better left unread, l ...more
