Driving Heat by: Richard Castle

This is book 7 in the Nikki Heat series.  I enjoy this series and I loved the show.  These are fun, fast reads.  They always include a bit of drama as well as humor.

I won’t go into detail about this story because it is the 7th in the series.  Just know that all of your favorite characters are in this book!

I gave this book 5 crowns.

A State of Jane by: Meredith Schorr

My Review:

This was the second book that I read this month from Meredith Schorr.  She has an easy to read style that is filled with humor and real life situations.  This is a story about a girl who is feeling the pressure to find ” The One” and to start her educational path towards becoming a lawyer.  Let’s just say that in 5 or 6 months she has had sex with just as many guys and her attitude towards men and relationships has changed drastically.  Not only has that changed but so has her attitude.

This was a fun read but I was annoyed in the beginning of the book with Jane.  She had such a pessimistic and nasty attitude that I didn’t really care what happened to her.  That does change and so did my opinion but it was a rough start for me.  This book is about love but not in the way that you think.

I received an E-ARC of this book from the Publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I give this book 3 crowns.

Radiator Days by: Lucy Knisley

radiator-days

This is a compilation of Lucy’s earlier comics and there is no real continuity in the strips throughout the book.  Some of the comic strips were hilarious and others left me confused.  This book does contain some graphic images and “naughty” words and scenarios.

Although I am a fan of Lucy’s art, this was not my favorite book by her.  I am glad that I didn’t pick this one up first because I may not have continued with these graphic novels.  I highly recommend that read any of the other books by her.  Relish is still my favorite and I have to read her newest book which I got for Christmas.

I gave this book 2 crowns.

Mother, Can You Not? by: Kate Siegel

Mother, Can You Not

ABOUT MOTHER, CAN YOU NOT?   – from PenguinRandomHouse.com

Based on the wildly popular Instagram account @CrazyJewishMom, Kate Siegel’s essay collection about life with the woman who redefined the term “helicopter mom”

There is nothing more wonderful than a mother’s love. There is also nothing more annoying. Who else can proudly insist that you’re perfect while simultaneously making you question every career, fashion, and relationship decision you have ever made?

No one understands the delicate mother-daughter dynamic better than Kate Siegel—her own mother drove her so crazy that she decided to broadcast their hilarious conversations on Instagram. Soon, hundreds of thousands of people were following their daily text exchanges, eager to see what outrageous thing Kate’s mom would do next. Now, in Mother, Can You NOT?, Kate pays tribute to the woman who invented the concept of drone parenting.

From embarrassing moments (like crashing Kate’s gynecological exams) to outrageous stories (like the time she made Kate steal a cat from the pound) to hilarious celebrations (including but not limited to parties for Kate’s menstrual cycles), Mother, Can you NOT? lovingly lampoons the lengths to which our mothers will go to better our lives (even if it feels like they’re ruining them in the process).

My Review:

I had never heard of the Instagram account @CrazyJewishMom before reading this book but I followed it halfway through reading it.

This was laugh out loud funny and a quick read.  If you are looking for a pick me up type of book and are not afraid to read a lot about “vajayjays”, then grab this book.  I am very close my mother but she is not exactly this type of mom and thank goodness for that!  I don’t know if I could handle it as well as Kate does.

I gave this book 3.5 crowns.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for a review.
