    DNF at 53%. I'm putting this one on hold right now. It's not bad, but the first two essays started out SOOOO good, but then after that it just turned into stories I couldn't really relate to so it wasn't as funny. I think i'm gonna wait until this comes out and it's available on audiobook, then I'll enjoy it much more as a memoir then.

    3.5 Stars A book of essays that is part memoir, part critique, it reads like a friend wrote a letter to you. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments mixed in with reflective moments.

    Some are born anxious, some achieve anxiety, and some have anxiety thrust upon them. I am lucky enough to have been blessed by all three. Woof.

I am lucky enough to have been blessed by all three. Woof. This collection of essays is one of the best I've read. Donahue's essay on anxiety is the best. I've never read an essay about anxiety that hits the nail on the head (of My anxiety) as perfect as this one, aptly entitled "Anxiety, You Lying Bitch". Donahue's anxiety, from what I could gather in the essay, manifests a lot like mine: physically and in my stomach. This makes it hard to be okay with plans that involve eating, which are frankly the only kind of plans I want to have. I want to eat, goddamnit, and if I have to pester my friends and family into telling me where we're going so I can peruse a menu Well Ahead of Time then so be it. Planning helps my anxiety stay quiet. I know it's annoying. I used the word already, but: I pester. I nag. I need to when and where, and sometimes how. Most of my family and friends accommodate me because I've opened up to them, eventually, finally, and they're pretty great. Sorry if I nag you though. I appreciate you. Anyway. "Anxiety, You Lying Bitch" was my favourite essay. But here are my other favourites: - "'Why Don't You Drink?'" - "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love One Direction" (I mean, obviously. Have you met me?) - "Burn It All Down" - "Get to Work" Donahue's voice is friendly and funny and comes across as such in her writing. If you don't follow her on Twitter, you should start. Her tweets are basically a shorter version of her thoughts in her book, except with memes and gifs, and it's just... pure. Stop following people you hate and follow good accounts 2k18. Thanks so much to ECW Press for an early copy of NOBODY CARES in exchange for a review.

    Anne T. Donahue is amusing and insightful throughout this collection of essays focusing on mental illness, writing, introversion, and other issues that seem to crop up for myriad women in their 20s and 30s. The title of the book is a great reminder of something that we all often forget: nobody really cares what we are doing, whether we look good or bad, whether we go to this party or that - and that is a really freeing thing to realize.

The book, which is a collection of her essays, reads like a series of her funny and heartfelt newsletters one after the other. Donahue's newsletter typically covers navigating her own life and pop culture moments in today's world as a young 30-something, but her essays in Nobody Cares primarily discuss her earlier years. Her early years are rife with being a moody adolescent and stories of her 20s where she cared a lot about appearances and who was "cool" and who was definitely not. While I really enjoy reading Donahue's perspective now, I wasn't as keen on stories from previous stages of her life. That said, some of the essays were perfection; the ones I enjoyed most were entitled "Anxiety, You Lying Bitch," "The Least Interesting Thing," and "While in the Awful." If you wants some bite sized chunks of Donahue to get a flavor of her style before her books is released, check out her newsletter now! 3.5 stars Disclaimer: I was provided with a digital copy of this book for free from ECW Press via email.

    Nobody Cares is an appropriate title for this book because I certainly didn't care for most of it. Donahue is a mess, by her own admission. Hopping from job to job, she eventually amassed so much debt she had to move back in with her parents. I'm wondering how this book got published because it's just her ramblings strung together with absolutely no semblemce of order. She mentioned writing a blog, I think she just mined it for material or copied and pasted and tried to pass it off as a book.

I appreciate her views on organized religion and the part about her relatives' demise is touching, but found little else of what she had to say interesting. I did like the cover. Thanks to NetGalley for the advance read.

    An excellent essay collection about mental illness, failure and working in your 20s and 30s. I liked the voice and the honesty in this collection and found a lot to relate to. Anne has a poignant and important voice. I found this book made me feel better about my own recent failings.

    Funny, well written memoir for anyone floating aimlessly in their 20’s or early 30’s. Honest and reflective, the targeted age group will feel embraced and understood. I think my oldest son might have whispered in her ear as she wrote. ?? I especially liked the BURN IT ALL DOWN chapter.

Donahue has a refreshing voice and I am beyond excited to see what else she come up with in the future. I would recommend this book for anyone who feels like they are falling apart or who just needs a shoulder to cry on.

The decision to review and my opinions are my own.* Anne T. Donahue has laid her soul bare to the world in this book. Nobody Cares is witty, raw and honest. At times it is a memoir, telling anecdotes from the author’s past to explain her attitudes to family and relationships, death and growing-up. At other times the essays are directly addressed to the reader (yes, you!) and form more of a self-help narrative or intimate pep talk, as she lists her own perceived failings and reassures us that we are not alone in ours. The essays here cover a multitude of topics, from mental health and addiction, relationships and growing-up, feminism, religion, family, death and grief. Every story, every piece of advice is offered in intimate, conversational style, and the author generously shares tips and insight from her own experiences, counselling sessions and personal ‘aha moments’. There is some repetition or overlap between some of the anecdotes, but they are told differently, in order to illustrate different points, so this does not detract from the book as a whole. This book is about being a hot mess, but that actually that is alright, because we are all (or most of us, at least) hot and messy in our own ways, and whilst there are ways to become metaphorically cooler and tidier, it is really up to us what we do and how we muddle through. It is a paean to self-love and self-care without any condescension or po-faced lecturing, and I recommend it to everyone who feels they need a concerned friend to tell them it like it is. And for the first time in years, I didn’t give a shit about being important. Which is a relief, because I’m not. None of us are. Nobody’s looking at us, nobody cares – everybody’s obsessed with their own Thing. Most of the time we’re all just trying our best. And sometimes we fall and other times we don’t, but we’re sure as shit not better than anybody else before or after the fact. If you can look at your life and feel confident that you’re doing something you love and giving it all you’ve got, I think that’s enough. Especially since not even a tidal wave of third-party congratulations will make you feel better if you don’t already like where you’re at. No amount of RSVPs, no parties, no Cool Guys From Whatever City Is Hip Right Now’s adulations. No book deals. You are always left with being yourself. – Anne T.

    This is my first netgalley read that which I want to purchase a physical copy. And not just one. I want to buy this for all of my close friends. Because Anna Donahue is raw and relatable and reading this book felt like a hug from someone who's been there. It's so, so good.

    I feel like I ghostwrote this book. So much of it could apply to my life, either as I was growing up or as I exist right now. Some of the messages that Donahue puts across are things that I needed to hear, at this moment in time, and I think that it'll appeal to a wide variety of people in that respect. Whether she's talking about the natural dissatisfaction of the introvert (no, I don't want to go to your party, I'd rather sit in my bed and watch vine compilations), the constant cloud of anxiet I feel like I ghostwrote this book.

It's a slim little edition but it packs an almighty punch. For those of us in our twenties, still trying to figure out what the hell we're doing, this is a must-read.

    Nobody Cares is a collection of essays from Anne T. Donahue about her life through her teens, 20's and 30's. I was not familiar with Anne's work before receiving this book but after finishing it, I feel like I know her. She is funny and honest about her life. She lives close to where I grew up and it was nice to read about a place close to home. My favorite essays were 'But For The Record: I Am Not Fun' and 'Icebreakers'.

Nobody Cares is funny, poignant, relatable and ridiculous in all the best ways. Through the author's essays we experience her highs and lows, struggles and life lessons learned. She's like the older sister/friend with the cautionary life tales to help you feel less alone and avoid her mistakes. Number 1 being figure out your stuff, be vulnerable and don't be afraid to seek therapy. It will save you a lot of difficulty and heartache along the years. I really liked her honesty. She says the things that people often sugar coat, without going out of her way to be edgy and dramatic. Her story is so dang (damn? I still feel bad about swearing in reviews, like I'm going to get in trouble for doing so) relatable. The life lessons that she passes on to the reader are validating. However, some of the stories bounce around a bit so there's an adjustment when reading. Also, it became redundant reading about her making the same mistakes multiple times. While it's authentic to her and life in general, I felt frustrated after awhile. Overall, an incredibly relatable and funny memoir of essays. I think the tone of the book is best summer up by this quote. "In our small section of the galaxy, many of us are dealing with things that aren't ours enough to talk about, but are still ours enough that we have to deal with them." Bam! That's so it.

    I really enjoyed this delightful book of essays. They were easy to read and so relatable to things I have gone through in my life. Now as a 30 something I can look back through my struggles and see where they have taken me similar to the author. Anne takes you on a journey through her anxiety, heavy drinking and search for a job/meaning in her life. I especially enjoyed all the 90's throwbacks throughout the book.

    Hilarious but poignant, and very, very relatable. Donahue writes very honestly and I really appreciated that she owns her privilege (particularly in the feminism essay, which was way too short). I guess that would be my main criticism overall - I just felt like there was so much to dig into here that some bits I would have liked more of were glossed over. But, I'm sure there will be a next book ;)

    I've been a fan of Anne's newsletter/twitter for a while now, and so I was super excited about this book. She didn't disappoint! My favorite part about Anne's writing is that it reads like a conversation with the best friend I didn't know I needed. She's funny and relatable, but also brutally honest. Like, she'll call you on your bullshit but still sit with you while you whine into a pint of ice cream. This book was witty, raw, heartfelt, and delightful.

    This book is hilariously observant and outlines situations where Anne has learnt the simple truth to easy up on yourself because nobody cares. Not in a hash way of course, your parents, close friends and family do obviously, but in all those flippant life moments and sometimes shamefully socially awkward situations, nobodies paying attention, that’s because really we are all too worried about whether we are fluffing up to notice when somebody else is.
