I had high, high hopes for this book, which I found at the used bookstore. I thought it would be a good, funny, book to read while J was gone. It was a quick read, but I really didn't find it all that funny. To me, it was one of those books where the author seemed like she was trying too hard. Rather than coming across as your favorite friend who happens to be snarky, she came across (in my humble opinion) as one of those acquaintances who tries really hard to be comically snarky, but just seems like she's complaining all the time.
That said, this book has gotten great reviews from others, so maybe she just hit a nerve with me.
Next, I'm trying to decide which of the books from my "To Be Read" pile to dive into. If only I had a book club to make these decisions for me! Anyway, thanks to Paperback Swap, I have quite a few options for what to read next, including:
-The Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg
-Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
-The Road by Cormac McCarthy
-Little Face by Sophie Hannah
-Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser
-Breaking Her Fall by Stephen Goodwin
