I feel like a jerk, because I love her blog, and I wanted to really love her book, and it was so funny in parts that I was laughing out loud really hard... but the editor's notes got annoying after a while, and they weren't funny, and it was just SO disjointed, like a bunch of blog entries glued together, which was disappointing. I was really looking for a memoir, a coherent narrative of some sort (or as coherent as Jenny can be while still being true to her writing style), and there were parts that did that, but other parts of the book were not what I expected. But definitely worth reading, especially for the Voldemort/Harry Potter/vagina section that had me snorting aloud.
