Thirty-Life Crisis: Surviving My Thirties, One Drunk Baby Shower at a Time Reviews

  • Ron Frampton

    A funny book dealing with becoming thirtysomething

  • Amanda B

    For being a youtuber book I didn't have alot of faith in this being such an engulfing book. Boy was i wrong, I couldn't put it down finished it in one evening. There are sad moments and happy moments the amount of her life that she was willing to share was admirable. Even if you don't follow her on the internet you could still get enough from this book to appreciate who she is and where she came from. It has been one of the more relatable bio type books that I have read recently.

    Barely to my 20s, but this book helped me so much. Her insight gives a real and raw perspective on life that has made an impact on me. Would totally recommend to anyone who can handle the mature language/

  • Julia

    I related to this way more than I'd like to admit and it was surprisingly comforting to know I'm not the only thirty-something that kind of hates, or at least majorly questions, a lot of the things other people this age seem to live for.

    For a long time, I did not understand YouTube. My friend Jennel in college was obsessed with it and would share endless stories from the videos she watched. I watched the funny videos on school breaks or whatever popped up on my Facebook, but I never got into the culture of it.

    Until I graduated from college, moved back home for the summer to do summer stock near my parents’ house, and didn’t have any friends around. I don’t know what pulled me in, but suddenly I was watching Vlogs and feeling l

    For a long time, I did not understand YouTube. My friend Jennel in college was obsessed with it and would share endless stories from the videos she watched. I watched the funny videos on school breaks or whatever popped up on my Facebook, but I never got into the culture of it.

    Until I graduated from college, moved back home for the summer to do summer stock near my parents’ house, and didn’t have any friends around. I don’t know what pulled me in, but suddenly I was watching Vlogs and feeling like I knew these people personally. Now I was starting to understand Jennel’s interest in the new medium.

    I have read a number of “YouTuber” books and tend to enjoy them. Mamrie Hart’s books are some of my absolute favorites and I will recommend her second book, I’ve Got This Round, to anyone who will listen; even if you don’t know her from her YouTube channel, that book is so important to read. She makes incredible points that can help a lot of people struggling.

    When I received a copy of Lisa Schwartz’s book Thirty Life Crisis, I was beyond excited. I found Lisa through her ex-boyfriend Shane Dawson but have remained a loyal viewer of her videos, even as she struggled to find her channel’s voice.

    Lisa’s book is one of the better written YouTube books. It is raw, hilarious, and honest which is a recipe for a successful memoir in my opinion. Lisa does a great job of avoiding alienating an audience that hasn’t seen her on screen. If you’ve never seen her online or on TV, you will still connect to her story.

    There is a lot of pressure on young people in their twenties. You’re expected to have graduated, entered the work force, find you life partner, and start a family in ten measly years. For Lisa, she thought she accomplished some of those things and others were not long lasting.

    Lisa’s book is written in a series of chapters that each have a hilarious title and anecdote that connects to the idea that even when it doesn’t feel like society says it, there is life after thirty. And even better, there is a GOOD life after thirty.

    I’m currently 25 and engaged, so there were parts of this book I couldn’t relate to but it didn’t make me feel any less moved by her story. I’m also a struggling actor, just trying to get my next job that will hopefully be my break into the industry. I say this because Lisa writes in a such a way that makes you want to be her friend, even if you haven’t struggled with the same things she has.

    This book is fun, I laughed out loud and smirked a bunch on the subway. Lisa has a great sense of humor and a specific voice that serves her memoir beautifully. I love how comedians can drop truth bombs so severe we can feel tears start to flow, and then button the point with a joke. It’s brilliant.

    4/5 stars from me. Thank you to Grand Central Publishing for the advanced copy! Thirty Life Crisis is on sale August 27, 2019.

    Breezy and remarkably relatable, “Thirty-Life Crisis” is a collection of often-funny stories and musings of Lisa Schwartz, the YouTube star known as Lisbug online. Throughout, she talks with readers about online dating, the considerable sameness of wedding-attending, and the importance of therapy in coming to understand yourself as those years of your thirties hit you like a truck.

    Breezy and remarkably relatable, “Thirty-Life Crisis” is a collection of often-funny stories and musings of Lisa Schwartz, the YouTube star known as Lisbug online. Throughout, she talks with readers about online dating, the considerable sameness of wedding-attending, and the importance of therapy in coming to understand yourself as those years of your thirties hit you like a truck.

    The book benefits enormously from Lisa’s conversational and light tone, unafraid at making fun of herself as much as the people and situations she has found herself surrounded by. YouTube especially over the last 10-15 years has created a large volume of “Internet Celebrities” as individuals have been able to grab thousands or even millions of subscribers to go along with the same amount of views on their videos. Yet, unlike those celebs of the Hollywood-ilk, YouTube personalities have the benefit of being much more down-to-earth and approachable, a trait that comes out vividly throughout the stories in Lisa’s collection. Much of the advice offered, while not necessarily new, has the advantage of being much more digestible when you realize the person giving is not that much different from you. Everyone is trying to find themselves, it’s just some people’s become much more public than others.

    Much in the same way one might choose to “follow” someone on social media, at the end of the day, the content provided by a person is not as important as the personality of the person giving it. In this, Lisa does an outstanding job getting to the messiness that is at the heart of all of us, millennial and otherwise. Perfect not only for those who live by the glow of their YouTube app, but those who have started to find that people are no longer getting their late 90’s pop culture references, “”Thirty-Life Crisis” is a welcoming addition to the celeb biography genre, from a profoundly real and likable literary voice.

    (I received a free copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway and appreciate the opportunity at providing a voluntary review.)

    This book was laugh out loud funny!

    The title quickly reeled me in; with 50+ weddings, bridal showers, and baby showers under my belt in the past decade, I could easily relate!

    This was a short, quick, fun read diving into the life of Lisa. There were laugh out loud pages, but also real, raw, brutal honesty pages.

    I easily enjoyed this one!

  • Morelia (Strandedinbooks)

    Perhaps I’ll come back to this one when I’m nearing 30 or turn 30, but even now, I related so hard to a few things. There were some parts that just did it for me and others that I just couldn’t get behind, but overall, I fairly enjoyed this story!

    I’ve been a fan of Lisa for as long as I can remember and I am so glad to get a deeper look into her life and take some words of advice with me!
