Running with Scissors: A Memoir | Augusten Burroughs
post image
Mehso-so

Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs has been on my TBR for three years, I found it at our library. I can see how things may be considered funny but to me the story was about a boy with a delusional mother, abusive father, and a quack of a doctor with a predator in his fold.Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs was interesting, and I finished it quickly. It‘s not a book I‘ll re-read, and not one I‘d be comfortable recommending.

Funny! Painfully funny at times, always honest and also, painfully honest at times! Worth reading, and on a secondary note, great tie-ins to behind the scenes on a number of TV shows y'all recognize including an absolutely laugh out loud story about Tim Allen! 😂

Interesting brief natural history lithium, psychology, psychiatry, and good memoir of going crazy and coming back. I love the dizzying cover and it matches my skull succulent planter and phone case. Fun color scheme, and a pretty fun read.

Using my lunch hour doing one of my favorite things besides eating lol Getting in a little extra reading time 😊 I listened to my audiobook on the way to a nearby park, now reading my actual book, and then I'll listen to my audiobook on the way back to work 😅 #ThankfulThursday #MyBookishLife

Autocorrect just changed audiobook to “ideal baby” and I feel very seen. 😂 I had the tagged book checked out as an ePub book but I found out for me with ebooks it‘s gotta be Kindle or nothing so I‘m gonna finish with the audio version. It‘s very good so far. #WinterGames #TheFilthyAnimals #TBRread

Another #TBRRead finished for #WinterGames ! I thought this was well written and a quick, engaging read, but with all of the hype surrounding this book, it didn‘t quite meet my expectations. Maybe it‘s just because I‘ve read so many other really great memoirs this year.
