Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies by Tara SchusterBuy Yourself the F*cking Lilies: And Other Rituals to Fix Your Life, from Someone Who's Been There by Tara Schuster
Published by Dial Press on February 18, 2020

By the time she was in her late twenties, Tara Schuster was a sought-after TV executive who had worked with Jon Stewart and launched Key & Peele to viral superstardom. By all appearances, she had mastered being a grown-up. But beneath that veneer of success, she was a chronically anxious, self-medicating mess. No one knew that her road to adulthood had been paved with depression, anxiety, and shame, owing in large part to her minimally parented upbringing. She realized she'd hit rock bottom when she drunk-dialed her therapist pleading for help.
Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies is the story of Tara's path to re-parenting herself and becoming a "ninja of self-love." This is the book Tara wished someone had given her and it is the book many of us desperately need: a candid, funny, practical guide to growing up and learning to love yourself in a non-throw-up-in-your-mouth-it's-so-cheesy way.

Leann’s Thoughts

Book cover for Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies

Achingly funny and tear-inducing read! Schuster gives us her history as a TV executive and a person trying to find the best way to cope with anxiety and shame. She’s able to lift others up by showing the raw story of her journey – not a magical, unachievable one but one that is filled with twists and wrong turns. She’s totally relatable and I think that’s what I enjoyed the most from her stories.

Schuster says she wrote this book so other’s could connect and not feel so alone in their confusion when navigating the world, and she succeeds in bunches! She skips the platitudes and reminds us how to find hope and meaning even when nothing seems to matter. This book couldn’t have come out at a better time!

If you are looking for a book to lift you up and not make you feel “less than”, this is the book you need to pick up!
