I Like You Just The Way I Am by Jenny Mollen

Saturday, June 7, 2014

By the actress, writer, and one of the funniest women on Twitter, an outrageous, hysterical memoir of acting on impulse, plotting elaborate hoaxes, and refusing to acknowledge boundaries in any form Jenny Mollen is an actress and writer living in Los Angeles. She is also a wife, married to a famous guy (which is annoying only because he gets free shit and she doesn't). She doesn’t want much from life. Just to be loved—by everybody: her parents, her dogs, her ex-boyfriends, her ex-boyfriends’ dogs, her husband, her husband’s ex-girlfriends, her husband's ex-girlfriend's new boyfriends, etc. Some people might call that impulse crazy, but isn’t "crazy" really just a word boring people use to describe fun people? (And Jenny is really, really fun, you guys!)

In these pages, you’ll find stories of Jenny at her most genuine, whether it’s stalking her therapist (because he knows everything about her so shouldn’t she get to know everything about him?); throwing a bachelorette party so bad that one of the guests is suspected dead; or answering the eternal question, Would your best friend blow your husband on a car ride to dinner if she didn't know you were hiding in the backseat?

I Like You Just the Way I Am is about not doing the right thing—about indulging your inner crazy-person. It is Jenny when she’s not trying to impress anyone or come across as a responsible, level-headed member of society. With any luck it will make you better acquainted with who youreally are and what you really want. Which, let’s be honest, is most likely someone else’s email password.

Goodreads Summary

This book is definitely about exploring the not so good decisions in life. Those of you who are into these decisions and those of you who aren't can equally get something out of this book. The people who are into living life more loosely will get a kick out of all the crazy situation that Jenny gets herself into. Those of you who would never dream of doing anything that is written about in this book can see what it would be like from the safe viewing angle of reading in your own home. 

This book is crazy and fun with so many weird stories that will keep everyone entertained. Some of the situations the author gets herself into will leave you scratching your head, but still laughing by the end. If anything, you should read this book for a guide of what not to do when you want to make sure you are behaving well.
