2018 Challenge - Book #35 - I'm Judging You

I snuck one more in!!  I had to spend more time than I like on the tram's today here in Basel, AND my youngest daughter has a half day of school on Wednesday (boo), so I had a long afternoon.  It is bitter cold here in Basel, Switzerland, so going outside doesn't sound appealing to anyone.  So we read.

Right before midnight I finished:

I'm Judging You
Author: Luvvie Ajayi
Pages: 256

This book is the author talking funny political commentary about all that is wrong with the world.  Well - mostly America, but still.  From social media, to race, to relationships, Ajayi puts it all on the table for why she judges people so harshly.  We have become a society of constant "look at me" and she wants it to stop.

This book was great.  I am pretty sure that Ajayi and I are kindered spirits.  I must roll my eyes at things I see everyday about 1000 times.  Social media celebrities, people who think it is okay to judge others instead of just looking in the mirror at themselves, and the injustice that has popped up since our Orange Commander in Diapers took is just too much.

She keeps the book funny and sarcastic, but also brings to light many things that are wrong with America.  She pushes hard for people to take a long look at themselves and the way they judge others depending on their race, sexuality, or life choices.  We all do it.  And it needs to stop.

Grab this book.  You won't be sorry - it was terrific.

Stars: 4 1/2
