Happy Friday everyone! I finally finished a book in the midst of all this chaos that’s been going on around me (no, I don’t have it up on the side bar of my blog. I’ve been busy alright?! Lay off!).
That being said, I figured now would be a perfect time to link up with one of my all-time fave bloggers, Heather from Blonde… Undercover Blonde for a book review!
Today, I’m sharing:
I’m going to be real honest here… I picked up this book a few months ago and thought it was going to be the funniest book ever alas, I was let down.
I kind of ran out of books to read on my shelf and figured I’d give it another go.
Here’s the overview I found on Barnes and Noble:
“I’ve changed a bit since high school. Back then I said no to using and selling drugs. I washed on a normal basis and still had good credit.”
Introducing Laurie Notaro, the leader of the Idiot Girls’ Action-Adventure Club. Every day she fearlessly rises from bed to defeat the evil machinations of dolts, dimwits, and creepy boyfriends—and that’s before she even puts on a bra.
For the past ten years, Notaro has been entertaining Phoenix newspaper readers with her wildly amusing autobiographical exploits and unique life experiences. She writes about a world of hourly-wage jobs that require absolutely no skills, a mother who hands down judgments more forcefully than anyone seated on the Supreme Court, horrific high school reunions, and hangovers that leave her surprised that she woke up in the first place.
The misadventures of Laurie and her fellow Idiot Girls (“too cool to be in the Smart Group”) unfold in a world that everyone will recognize but no one has ever described so hilariously. She delivers the goods: life as we all know it.
Raise your hands if anyone else has read this book, let alone even heard of it? I had found it while I was perusing the Half Price book shelves one day… the overview grabbed my attention but I’ve got to admit, I wasn’t really impressed. I mean, sure the stories were pretty funny and she’s got wit when it comes to her writing but, I guess I had higher expectations that were not met.
If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you do and let me know what you think of it. I’d be willing to read another one of her books mainly just to compare it to this one.
Hope everyone has a fantabulous weekend!
