Jennette McCurdy celebrated her controversial memoir's milestone days after its release.

The 30-year-old retired actress took to Instagram Tuesday to share a couple of photos showing her flashing a huge smile while standing in front of a billboard featuring her book "I'm Glad My Mom Died" as one of Amazon's top picks for the month of August.

In the snaps, McCurdy rocks a neon green patterned, sleeveless top, dark blue pants and a pair of sneakers. She let her wavy hair down while posing across the street from the huge signage.

"I mean... I'm thrilled to be included in @amazonbooks editors' Best Biographies & Memoirs of August," she wrote in the caption.

Fans quickly flooded her post with compliments. Many congratulated and voiced how proud they were of her.

"You are so gorgeous and so proud of you beautiful angel," wrote one fan.

"Congratulations!!! So cool," another added.

"You look so happy, we're all so proud of you," a different user commented.

McCurdy's book, which came out on Aug. 9, has been making headlines even before its release because of the revelations she discussed in it.

Among the things she talked about in her memoir was the moment that "broke" her while working with her "Sam & Cat" co-star Ariana Grande.

"What finally undid me was when Ariana came whistle-toning in with excitement because she had spent the previous evening playing charades at Tom Hanks's house. That was the moment I broke," she wrote in her book.

According to her, Nickelodeon prevented her from exploring other career opportunities outside of the show. On the other hand, Grande had some extracurricular work while doing the series.

Another issue the former "iCarly" star tackled was her eating disorder battle that started when her late mom, Debra, introduced her restrictive eating at the age of 11.

McCurdy shared that due to calorie restriction and her low weight, she didn't get her period for years.

The former teen star also did not hold back when she discussed her experience at Nickelodeon. She revealed that after "Sam & Cat" got canceled, the network offered her $300,000 to not speak publicly about her working experience there.

McCurdy declined the offer, and she went on to star in the Netflix series "Between." After doing the show, she ultimately decided to retire from acting.
