I started reading this book and had quite a few laugh-out-loud moments. From mocking the different types of friends we all have, to pointing fingers at the women who don't wash their bras on the daily, but then things got serious. My laugh-out-loud moments turned into moments of deep thought as Luvvie talked about topics ranging from racism to feminism, rape culture, and us privileged folk (I say "us" because according to her, and I have to agree, being born white immediately gives me an advantage over others who were not born with pearly white skin).
"I'm Judging You" wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be, well, the first few chapters were, but it took a twist I wasn't expecting until it smacked me in the face like a piece of cold bologna. Normally, I will breeze through a good book in a day, or two, but it took me nearly a week to finish "I'm Judging You." Not because it wasn't good, it was, but I found myself stopping to highlight comments I found interesting or thought-provoking, I even have hand-written notes in the margins of some of the pages.
Honestly, my only gripe about this book is the use of profanity. My father always told me intelligent people don't need to use profanity to drive their points home. There were definitely more than a few points in this book when I found myself questioning Luvvie's choice of words, but it didn't stop me from reading.
If you are easily offended or make faces when someone uses less than flattering language, don't pick this book up. If you're looking for a somewhat humorous, but thought-provoking book, read on my friends, read on.
An avid reader with a thirst for knowledge, and adventure through words printed on paper.
