    Phoebe Robinson brings her infectious charm and utterly delightful sense of humor to her second essay collection, Everything’s Trash But That’s Okay. From body image to contemporary feminism to our culture of overwork, Robinson offers deft cultural criticism and hilarious personal anecdotes that will make readers laugh, cringe, and cry. Everything may indeed be trash but writing like this reminds us that we’re gonna make it through all the terrible things with honesty, laughter, and faith.

    It’s not a perfect book--at times, Robinson overwrites, gets lost in tangents, and uses five jokes to make a point where one or two would sufice but this is still well worth a read.

    I have to admit I’ve never listened to “2 Dope Queens” (only because I don’t listen any podcasts), but I enjoyed Robinson’s first book You Can’t Touch My Hair, so I snatched this one up on pub day. I admire a smart, strong, funny woman who isn’t afraid to share personal stories, but will also broach important societal issues. This essay collection is a good mix. Robinson’s boisterous personality and comical narration is an entertaining audio experience.

    4.5 Stars. This lives up to hype. Phoebe Robinson delivered the fun, humorous, enlightening essays that I was expecting. I think her talent as a writer has grown more solid and mature. I honestly found myself enjoying this collection of essays more than her previous book, which I enjoyed quite a bit.

    I have been wanting to read this for months, ever since I saw the cover uploaded to Goodreads, and am very happy to have been granted an ARC from the publisher. A part of me is disappointed that I

    I have been wanting to read this for months, ever since I saw the cover uploaded to Goodreads, and am very happy to have been granted an ARC from the publisher. A part of me is disappointed that I didn’t get to listen to the author read the audiobook. While her stream of consciousness jokes and witty observations are entertaining, sometimes she went into all out Virginia Woolf mode. I think Robinson’s writing flows best while being spoken aloud. I’m still going to check the audiobook out from the library.

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an unbiased review.

    I read this entire book with Phoebe Robinson's voice in my head. From her deep dive into her trouble with feminism (I feel you, girl) to her deep and abiding love for Bono, Phoebe is hilarious, insightful, talented and real. She's a real person with real feeling about real things. She's not afraid to be honest.

    This book is much needed in this current climate.

    Also, Phoebe - Let's be friends because of many reasons, but mainly because "Ugh, but lol" is the perfect epitaph for my future gravestone

    really delivered on so many levels. Phoebe isn't afraid to go there and talk about the really trivial things to the downright TRASH! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, I found myself laughing out loud, getting enraged, nodding my head in agreement, crying (yes- I cried) and screaming "Hellz Nah!". I went through a rage of emotions while reading this book and even though a lot of things are trash, Phoebe really made me feel like its okay.

    really delivered on so many levels. Phoebe isn't afraid to go there and talk about the really trivial things to the downright TRASH!

I went through a rage of emotions while reading this book and even though a lot of things are trash, Phoebe really made me feel like its okay.

    I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I did, but it is clear her writing got better with her second book. The book is so topical and timely. A lot of the things she wrote about you've probably read about but she writes about it from an entirely refreshing angle. The book covers dating, feminism, finance, Phoebe meeting Bono and #BritishBae . The entire time I was reading this book I could hear Phoebe in my head which speaks to how authentic the writing is.

    Everything Is Trash, but this book isn't! I definitely recommend picking this one up.

    Thanks DuttonBooks!

    Bruh,

    you would have gotten all my side-eye.. you can read my review for the first book on here.. but real talks - I have a change of heart! She has definitely upped her game with Everything Is Trash! The truth just poured out of her and it was like swimming through truth-bomb after truth-bomb sans any cheese.

    I love the real-world/real-girl struggling to make it story. It’s the same in every career where you’re putting yourself out there to make a name for yourself but it’s hit with stops and starts. I love all her political commentary even tho it’s relatively stuck to one essay which I also appreciated. I love how she spoke of the complexities black women faced joining the women’s march — it’s something that I definitely went through at the time it occurred. I love how much she rode for sisters in this book.

    Her obsession with Bono is hilarious, her new beau and all the tea she spilled about loneliness and money really impressed the fuck out of me. Just her ability to be candid was so inspiring. I think this she redeemed herself in Everything Is Trash and she solidified herself as a certified comedy-memoir writer.

    I’ll read all of them, keep writing Pheebs!

    Loved the chapter on feminisms, but otherwise only okay. The first book was much better.

  • Chinook

    This is solidly interesting because Phoebe is funny andnshe does a good audiobook reading. But I didn’t love it as much as her first book, except maybe the addendum, which is super sweet and adorable as she talks about how she met her bae and he chimes in as well.

  • Barbara

    I so adored her first book, but I can’t recommend this one. Bummed because I enjoy her podcasts and body of work and preordered this book anticipating a fun, insightful read.
