Comedian, activist, and hugely popular culture blogger at AwesomelyLuvvie.com, Luvvie Ajayi, serves up necessary advice for the masses in this hilarious book of essays.
"This truth-riot of a book gives us everything from hilarious lectures on the bad behavior all around us to razor sharp essays on media and culture." (Shonda Rhimes, New York Times best-selling author of Year of Yes and executive producer of Scandal and Grey's Anatomy)
"I don't know how Luvvie Ajayi got so smart so young about so many things, from feminism to social media, from the pervasiveness of rape culture to the excellence of Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I'm just grateful she has chosen to share her wisdom with the rest of us...." (Jennifer Weiner, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Best Friends Forever)
"You will love Luvvie Ajayi's I'm Judging You, and you will argue with it, laugh hysterically at it, shout 'AW HELL YES' at it, and carry parts of it in your heart to dissect or inspire.... Perfect for starting important and meaty discussions about all of the topics your mama told you never to bring up at polite dinner parties." (Jenny Lawson, New York Times best-selling author of Furiously Happy)
With over 500,000 readers a month at her enormously popular blog, AwesomelyLuvvie.com, Luvvie Ajayi is a go-to source for smart takes on pop culture. I'm Judging You is her debut book of humorous essays that dissects our cultural obsessions and calls out bad behavior in our increasingly digital, connected lives - from the importance of the newest Shonda Rhimes television drama to serious discussions of race and media representation to what to do about your fool cousin sharing casket pictures from Grandma's wake on Facebook.
With a lighthearted, razor-sharp wit and a unique perspective, I'm Judging You is the audiobook the world needs, doling out the hard truths and a road map for bringing some "act right" into our lives, social media, and popular culture. It is the Do-Better Manual.

...but i must sound the *corny jokes alert*
besides the occasional corny jokes which were like speed bumps on a highway, this book was such a good read/listen. Luvvie dealt with contemporary social issues on our minds without any byte of chill. This book will be your inner "side eye" when you're about to commit the typical social (and social media) gaffes.
Thanks for speaking out Luvvie.
Love a good read
The only negative thing I can say about this audiobook is that it ended! I hope this is the first of many books by Luvvie. Raw, funny and real. Truly brilliant!
I was brought here by Evelyn from the Internets and to her I want to say thank you. This book changed the whole game! From start to finish it was giving me LIFE!! As a Nigerian who moved to the UK when I was 3 I can empathise with some of the things Luvie said, and can further confirm the greatness of africans! I really just want to say that I LOVED this book and would recommend it to EVERYONE!!
Ps your shade is the best thing since jollof rice and chicken 😂
"Well worth the wait."
Way to go Luvvie. I honestly believe everybody could benefit from reading/listening to this book. I see great thing in her future. If you've never experienced her blog you should check it out.
"Great book, new fan"
I have friends who always talk about Luvvie's Twitter and Facebook. After listening, I can see why they enjoy her. This book has made me want to follow Luvvie on every social platform.
"I have NEVER laughed so hard"
This book was like hanging out with my friend. I found myself nodding and clapping, inspired and jovial. I can't wait to buy a physical copy of this book so I can share it with EVERYONE!
i loved this book it was wonderful, cant wait for the next one!! thanks to my internet cousin Evelyn for referring me. Great Great Book!!!
"Judge Away Chile!"
Yes! The perspectives that Luvvie gave are worth listening to again. This book can serve as a reference to have on deck whenever I judge somebody or catch myself doing the things she talked about. So much insight in a non-finger shaking grandma way.
Her Nigerian influences
Luvvie is EVERYTHING!!!!! This gave me so much life!!!!! #BlackGirlMagic was oozing from every word!
"Extremely worthy read. Couldn't stop! Great!"
It was awesome! Just like Kickin it with a friend talking & everything like always!
"A very detailed rant"
Overall the book was good if you are interested in hearing all that's wrong with people. ( that's what this book is all about)
It was well thought out and categorized which was great. I honestly only read it because of my book club and I generally don't read books like this but I digress.
It wasn't a page turner for me so thank God for Audible and long commutes.
I do side eye many of the things she points out so essentially this book expressed what most people feel others need to stop doing.
This book was good and there were definitely some laugh out loud moments. If you're a fan of her blog then you will like this book. They're similar writing styles.
I love that the author narrated her own story but, i felt like sometimes she wasn't speaking clearly.
Of course. I did feel a bit long at times.
I laughed from intro to epilogue. The author is perfect narrating with her comedic made up words and real life stories.
