What I’m Reading – Hyperbole and a Half

[Ok, so we’re kind of running out of liver related posts here. Friday we head to Lahey for a 3 month check-up for Derek and a potential date for surgery, but until then…books!]

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

photo (3)My friend Nikki introduced me to Allie Brosh and her blog, Hyperbole and a Half a couple of years ago. She is a genius when it comes to relating what it’s like to suffer from depression. And she’s hilarious. Which may seem like a counterintuitive pairing, but ends up being the perfect mix of melancholy and honest. Plus, I can totally relate to “flawed coping mechanisms.” The book is not solely focused on her struggle with depression, there’s a particularly funny story about a rogue goose that made its way into the house and terrorized Allie and her husband. Pure comedy gold.
