NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLER: Luvvie Ajayi

THE FOUNDER of popular pop-culture blog, Awesomely Luvvie, is now officially a New York Times best-selling author.

I’m Judging You: The Do-better manual is the Nigerian-born Luvvie Ajayi’s first published book and was revealed as an entry on the coveted list yesterday (Sept 21).

“It happened. IT. HAPPENED. I am officially a New York Times Best-Selling Author!!!! #ImJudgingYou is a BEST-SELLER!!! 😭🙏😭,” Luvvie, who has been praised by queens in media like Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay and Shonda Rhimes, said.

The book, which reflects Luvvie’s spunky personality and hilarious commentary, documents her thoughts on everything from her personal take on serious issues like racism and sexism to her everyday pet peeves like the obnoxious use of hashtags. No matter the case, Ajayi said she’s judging us all for the shameful decisions we make but encourages us to rest assured because she’s here to help us do better.

Just 21 years ago, a nine-year-old Luvvie left her nine-bedroom home in Nigeria and settled in Chicago.

“If it’s your purpose sometimes doors will open for you that you might not have realised were there. And that’s the best thing when finally your gift is being affirmed,” she told XO Necole.
