My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved the author’s previous books, so when I heard that this one was coming out, I preordered it IMMEDIATELY. Ms. Lawson writes about human flaws in such a humorous, open way that the reader can’t help but be sucked into the story.

I learn a lot from her books, too. I had no idea that watermelon was a laxative for cats until she described her leopard spotted carpet. I had to look up a cockchafer, also.

I live the chapter on fighting with the insurance company every week. Sometimes, it’s several times a week. I comforted me to know that others have the same fights with the same people, and it’s not just me. Now, if we could all band together and allow doctors to decide what is best for patients, and not allow the insurance companies to dictate treatments, so many more people would be happier and healthier.

I highly recommend this book. I laughed through the majority of it, but she discusses many serious subjects, also.

I loved this touching, funny set of stories about the author’s life. Some stories were funnier than others, and some had me feeling strong emotions. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who needed something light and quick to read. It was well-written and kept me engaged for the whole book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had read some very heavy books before I picked this one up. I knew how it was going to end, so I didn’t worry about stressing myself out.

The author told her story very well. It was powerful. I am glad that she wrote the story in her own words and didn’t have a ghost writer.

She told the story of a woman who worked hard for everything she got. She told the story of a woman struggling with infertility. She told the story of a mom struggling between work and family.

I would recommend this book highly. It was definitely worth reading.

Idiot by Laura Clery

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I recently discovered the author of this book by her videos on Facebook. She is funny and I truly enjoy watching her. When I discovered that she’d written a book, I just had to read it!

The book was humorous, but touched on some rather difficult parts in her life. I am very glad that she wrote the book. I know several people who would be helped by hearing her story. It stopped abruptly with the birth of her son. I hope she writes a second book about parenthood. Her videos about it are funny, and I can only imagine that the stuff that comes with raising children would be just as humorous.
