I got a real kick out of this, even though I‘m not in Singh‘s target audience (ie, the 15-25 crowd, with some wiggle room). She‘s up front about how she intends to challenge and call out her readers, but she does so in a supportive, uplifting way that‘s a joy to listen to and consider.

Expect lots of humour, heart, and creative business advice. Don‘t approach this as a mental health primer, despite Singh‘s occasional interludes about depression.

I took an #audiowalk to the grocery store specifically to get bleu cheese dressing, but they were totally sold out. No buffalo eggs for me tomorrow. 😭

At least the trek gave me some more listening time. I‘m now 46% into HOW TO BE A BAWSE, and Libby thinks I‘ll finish in just over an hour. It feels mighty good to listen to something short after a couple weeks of looooooong audiobooks and minimal listening time.

I made two cranberry macaroon loaves while I started my next audiobook. (The one in front is a mini; it was done before the top could change colour.) A friend three years younger than me told me HOW TO BE A BAWSE made her feel really old, but I‘m enjoying it so far. Singh‘s entertaining and supportive, even if she does clearly target her advice at teenagers and younger 20-somethings. #audiobaking

xicanti @readordierachel they‘re always a big hit. The base is esssentially banana bread, but the coconut makes the loaf all nubbly and splodgy and wonderful. 3mo

1. I have many but this is on my goodreads profile page today. “The most important thing is that you have to listen to your truths, desires and wants. And have to believe you deserve all of it.”

2. Tagged: I felt so positive and motivated after listening to this that I actually bought the physical book at full price. I should probably read/listen again as I could use some motivational rejuvenation

Unfortunately I didn't take anything away from this book. She briefly discussed depression but barely went into details. If mental illness was a problem for her and she overcame it to be a "bawse", she could've helped so many people. However, the opportunity was lost and filled in with her version of comedic narration.
Overall score: 3.0/5.0

"A Bawse knows that there are many different pathways to every destination in life, and just because you‘ve only been given one set of directions, that doesn‘t mean ten other roads don‘t all lead to the same place."

I am listening to How to be a Bawse by Lilly Singh. This is my first audiobook experience. Listening to Lilly's story in her own voice is so much fun.

Sometimes you just need a self help book. Listening to it at work has been interesting. I am starting this one and so far realizing that most of the advice is for a younger audience and those trying to work in media...we will see how it pans out! #selfhelp #audiobook #advice

Quite interesting book. Author- YouTube video maker lilly Singh has given us a quick glance to her most dreadful past and how she started from zero to the biggest celebrity now.
Catchy quotes n anecdotes.

It‘s clearly written by and targeted towards a younger demographic than I fall into at this point, and she is still quite star struck and name droppy, but the author makes good points and IMO obviously put a good amount of work into it. I had a tough time getting through it personally, but I could see it being great for a younger reader.

I give it a solid 3.5/5 . It's not my favorite self-help/memoir but it's really good. I especially loved the quotes and keeping it real advice I got throughout. It would have been better if I found it more relatable and towards the end I found myself doing some skimming. But overall I think it's s book that everyone should read!

Hey hey, Book Dragons! Been a while. Sorry about that.
But, after days of caring for/strategically avoiding sick family members like they had the black spot of Davy Jones, I got the flu. Almost 2 wks now & the struggle is still real...but better-ish. 😷
But I'm still reading. 💛📚 And still participating in #24in48 hr #readathon! Yep, just finished the #Bawse book, & 11 hrs 22 min reading! Yay! *cough*
What about you? How's your weekend reading?

Finished my first book for the #24in48 readathon last night. This was a strange one. I was expecting it to be more autobiographical - it's a guide to life with some anecdotes thrown in. I do agree with most of her advice, though it is a bit simplistic at times. I liked that she got celebrity friends to read some chapters. I think ambitious young Lilly Singh fans will love it. I am ambitious and I do watch her videos but I'm not so young 😄

I often am an over sharer especially at work. It's really key to keep some things secret or hidden. Don't give everything away all at once. Do you agree with this?

tif I'm a pretty open book. There's not much I won't share. My mum hates it as she shares nothing and is always telling me not to be so honest about everything 😂😂 2y

A guide to conquering life written by a famous internet influence. This book helps many younger people in facing challenges and learning how to deal with some situations. It includes real examples to help make the lessons so relatable! Since it‘s written by someone who is extremely well known on all social media platforms, it will give the readers more of a trusting sense since they are familiar with the author,

I‘m was thinking about maybe being a Bawse some day, then I learned it would take a ladder, some stairs and another ladder. My knees are too old for that kind of thing.

📚📚📚📚 I thoroughly enjoyed this read. LS clearly has tried to put her brand of charm and humor on what could have been a dull self-help book. Instead, we get funny lines, honest common sense thoughts. There are no one-trick wonders in here but LS offers common sense work hard tips. It's 50 chapters about 2-3 pages each with graphics. There are some redundancies but they don't detract. The message is clear.

I didn't gain anything from reading this book. It felt like Singh was checking "write a book" off her to do list. I thought there would be more reflections about being Canadian or that moment she knew she "made it". Don't expect too much from this self-help book.

I'm sorry Singh but this is so hard for me to get into at the moment. I wish I could return to you later but there's 40 holds on this brand new self-help book. I hope it's just me... I don't enjoy self-help books usually. Everyone else is giving this good reviews. Oh well - at least Singh is motivating me to set reading goals!

I was hoping to learn more about her, as I'm not really familiar w/her, but instead I was just disappointed. Most of the book is just a not so humble brag about her YouTube success, while the other is pseudo advice/self-help book. I couldn't bring myself to finish this book, it was going nowhere, the way she said bawse repeatedly got annoying, and I have a very long TBR list that contains better books that I would rather spend my time on.

Gentle mixture between memoir and a self-help book. I got the audiobook, listening to Lilly's quirky self just made the experience so much more enjoyable.

This book fills you up the self love and joy you need in your life but also gives you the steps to conquer your life in the best way! Read it in 2 days and fell in love. She definitely hit a homer with this one! 👌 #becomeaBAWSE
