Luvvie Ajayi, popular blogger at Awesomelyluvvie.com, brings her wit, irreverent views, and fierce humor to her collection, I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual. In her collection of insightful essays, Ajayi ridicules the spectacle of pop culture, from the never-ending iterations of The Real Housewives series to click-bait headlines driving fake news. This is Ajayi’s guidebook for navigating our super-connected digital world. However, it’s not all jokes in this poignant debut. Ajayi shines brightest when she takes on racial justice. In a moving essay about the story of Sandra Bland and policing in America, Ajayi gets at the core of what is so jarring about the current state of the country. It’s a brilliant strategy; by discussing the ludicrous, Ajayi creates a bond with the reader, allowing space for more difficult and transformative conversations. In a world full of judgment, Luvvie is here to remind us of our flaws, our mistakes, and how we are in need of deep reflection. More than anything, she’s here to remind us there is still a space, and hope, for meaningful connection, and we can still laugh while doing it.
