BUT, this is where you should make an exception, put down the remote, pause that podcast on your commute and make time to read Busy Philips new book This Will Only Hurt A Little.

The Hollywood actress (and our new woman crush) has long been on our radar for not just her comedic acting, but her long-standing, much-coveted friendship with fellow former Dawson's Creek actress Michelle Williams, but her down-to-earth and downright funny Instagram stories. Her book not only dives into the complexities of her female friendships, but bravely opens up about her sexual assault at the age of 14, rife sexism in the film industry and is generally just a very observant, honest and sharply funny book, with moments of intimacy that make it inspiring yet totally relatable.

If you're looking for to dive deeply into a satisfying read this weekend, look no further - we implore you.
