"A lot of writers preach about being 'vulnerable' and 'brave' and 'badass, ' but Alyssa simply lives that way--and it's inspiring. The essays in This Might Be Too Personal are edgy and emotional; they go down fast and feverishly. Alyssa has figured out how to stay wild and cool while designing a life that is grounded and beautiful. She found the sweet spot that so many of us are searching for." --Cat Marnell, New York Times bestselling author of How To Murder Your Life

"Hilarious and inspiring."

"The best part about This Might Be Too Personal is Alyssa's voice: authentic, funny, smart, super open, and warm. You'll want to be best friends with her after reading."

"Shelasky relishes oversharing, which makes for many hilarious and heartfelt moments: you will feel like she is your new best friend. Perfect beach reading." --Booklist

"Whether she's telling you about dating a Greek dentist, hanging out with Sarah Jessica Parker, or having a baby on her own, Alyssa Shelasky grabs your attention and won't let go. This Might Be Too Personal is the work of a wise author who has seen it all but remains curious about life." --Vanessa Grigoriadis, contributing writer at New York Times Magazine and author of Blurred Lines

"I love Alyssa's writing. It's so sharp, humble, and hilarious. Her stories are achingly familiar... [This Might Be Too Personal] is a book about making mistakes and breaking hearts (including your own), until finally, joyfully, learning to live life on your own terms. An absolute pleasure to read." --Sarah Treem, creator and showrunner of Showtime's The Affair
