    Abbi Jacobson chronicles a three week road trip as she ponders what she wants out of life and love. It is an enjoyable read and I particularly liked her illustrations of podcasts and albums she listened to, her hack for 'cado toast, and numerous "sleep studies" when she couldn't sleep....

    I sent the publisher a fangirl email (always with the "I'm a librarian" mention) and begged for an advanced copy of this book. To my surprise, it worked! I quickly read through this collection of essays by one of my favorite funny ladies and her writing does not disappoint. Which reall...

    Confession time: I haven't watched Broad City (although it's been on my radar and I do want to watch; I'll probably binge pretty soon) and I accepted a pitch for this because Cheryl Strayed blurbed the cover. (And because I tend to love memoirs by funny women, regardless of my familiar...

    I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities, and Other Stuff is a fun, light read. I hadn't heard of Abbi Jacobson prior to reading this book so I'm not familiar with her comedy routine. I enjoyed the book, her wit and reflections and drawings. Following a break-up with ...

    Get the audio book. You won't regret it. Abbi tells her stories and short rants effortlessly. I felt that she was so relatable while discussing her inner conflicts and going through heartbreak. Going on a cross country road trip solo is bad ass in its own but I like that she took the t...

    I want to give this book to all of my friends. I want to encourage us to write the shit out because we all need therapists and none of us can afford them. In a world where everything is so damn performative, Abby's voice isn't clear, nor is it fresh: it's one of a rambling, borderline ...

    I have to applaud Jacobson for the raw vulnerability she wrote about in this memoir. Chapters where she spoke about the thoughts racing through her mind while she tried to sleep were strangely comforting to me, as they mirror my own anxieties that tend to spike when I try and sleep. ...

    I love Abbi Jacobson and her work, but this book was a bit uneven. It shines where she is most specific in her stories (I.e. visiting an aura reader in Sedona) where I am often laughing and crying in the same breath. When she is speaking in generalities about life on the road or after ...

    I didn't know anything about the author before I started this book. The book is about a road trip to help get over a broken relationship. I found her observations on losing love were applicable to all sorts of loss and grief. I took quite a bit away from this book. ...

    I really enjoyed a lot of this book, especially as read by Abbi Jacobson in the audiobook. Her vulnerability in essays about her breakup and her musings on random topics were alternately moving and funny. However I can't help but feel like this memoir needed more editing, to push some ...

    If I had to describe I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities, and Other Stuff in one word it would be stressful. If you enjoy reading page after page (or listening to hour after hour) of late night neurotic ramblings, then this book might be perfect for you. I, o...

    I love Broad City and Abbi to start with and this was just an easy, fun read - essays written while on a solo road trip trying to figure out some personal stuff. Some chapters were REALLY good (finding comedy, meeting Ilana, filming Broad City) and some felt like filler. Overall, I'd o...

    Exactly the revitalizing read I needed! Humorous, engaging and self-reflective. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy from the publisher pre-release date, and I just devoured this in a few short sittings. Full review to come on the blog! ...

    Rant Review From An Avid Broad City Viewer: I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson I was over the moon excited when I found this was out in the world and also (low-key) mad that I wasn't informed earlier of this release. Broad City was one of my highlights of September 2017, when ...

    Weird..but endearing. Abbi has a lot going on in her life. I mean, I guess that could be said about any young woman fighting her way towards her career goals and trying to deal with love, heartbreak, anxiety, depression, etc. But you really get the sense of how overwhelmed she feels...

    Abby Jacobson - best known as one-half of TV's Broad City duo - is just all over the place here . . . Literally - Ms. Jacobson (a southeast Pennsylvania native - woot woot!) details her solo drive across the U.S. starting in New York City, with stops in Memphis, Tennessee; Austin, ...

    I?m a bit biased because I love Broad City and therefore Abbi Jacobson, although I hadn?t realized how much I didn?t know about her before reading this. These essays are certainly passionate, yet also impulsive. I think when people choose to write about their lives they accident...

    The best part of this whole book was the part where Jacobson talks about tucking in her shirt and like...all of womanhood and lesbian love clicking into place around her. I agree. Also, like, not to be that girl, but...this book is about Carrie Brownstein, right? We're all thinking it?...

    I love Broad City and Abbi is a great comedian. I listened to her read the audiobook and enjoyed it. From what I gathered, the overarching story is that Abbi goes on a road trip after her first big breakup. She goes on long tangents for most of the book, but keeps returning to the ...

    I never really watched Broad City, but I know of the show and did like what I watched. There are some parts of this book that I really loved. Reading about Abbi?s heartbreak was comforting, because I?m going through my own at this moment. Reading about the creation of Broad City an...

    Broad City is one of my all time favorite shows. it?s smart, funny, and unique. it shows us what our twenties are supposed to be like. so it was only obvious that I would read one of the co-creators memoir. I cannot believe I'm giving this book a two-star rating. I wanted to brin...
