Im-Judging-You-Title

Hilariously wry social commentary, delivered as a guide to modern manners; in hardcover for the first time, with gold spot gloss on the jacket, plum judgey-pops across the endpapers, and the tour de force bonus essay “We Didn’t Do Better”

In this hilarious book of essays, comedian, activist, and hugely popular culture blogger Luvvie Ajayi inspires us to good behavior, one sharp and funny side-eye at a time.

The go-to source for bracingly smart takes on pop culture at her enormously popular blog AwesomelyLuvvie.com, she has also become a bulwark of good humor and crucial common sense at what can seem a common sense-free time. I’m Judging You dissects our cultural obsessions and calls out bad behavior in our increasingly digital, connected lives. With a lighthearted, rapier wit and a unique perspective, it’s the handbook the world needs now, doling out the hard truths and a road map for bringing some “act right” to our popular culture, social media, and our lives.

Got questions?

  • Is there an I'M JUDGING YOU audiobook?

    Yes, there is an I’M JUDGING YOU audiobook and you can order it from Audible now! I read it myself.

  • I don’t live in the United States. Will I be able to get a physical copy?

    I have a large international readership so I’m working on a definitive answer for this! But some of the bookstores that carry it ship internationally, like Barnes & Nobles. Amazon also does. Canadians, you’re all good too. You can buy the Kindle or Nook version too!

  • That lollipop on the cover is adorable. Is it real?

    Yes. The star of my cover is a shady lollipop I have now named JudgeyPop. It has its’ own Instagram account (@JudgeyPop)! It will be showing on many types of products. I’m especially excited about the mug you’ll be able to put on your desk, to side-eye folks who wanna talk to you before you have your morning coffee.

  • Can I bulk order books for my book club or event?

    Yes, you can certainly place a bulk order for the books. Email Luvvie at Luvvie@aweluv.com!
