Im-Judging-You-Title

With over 500,000 readers a month at her enormously popular blog, AwesomelyLuvvie.com, Luvvie Ajayi is a go-to source for smart takes on pop culture. I’m Judging You is her debut book of humorous essays that dissects our cultural obsessions and calls out bad behavior in our increasingly digital, connected lives. It passes on lessons and side-eyes on life, social media, culture and fame, addressing those terrible friends we all have to serious discussions of race and media representation to what to do about your fool cousin sharing casket pictures from Grandma’s wake on Facebook.

With a lighthearted, razor sharp wit and a unique perspective, I’m Judging You is the handbook the world needs, doling out the hard truths and a road map for bringing some “act right” into our lives, social media, and popular culture. It is the Do-Better Manual.

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!
