Book Description:

The bestselling and “perennially hilarious” mother-daughter team is back with a new collection of stories from their real lives, guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Join Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella as they regret drunk-shopping online, try smell-dating, and explore the freedom of a hiatus from men – a Guyatus. They offer a fresh and funny take on the triumphs and facepalm moments of modern life, showing that when it comes to navigating the crazy world we live in, you’re always your own best lifeguard.

Jessica’s Review:

This mother/daughter combo just know how to bring on the laughs! And I listened to it at a time when I really needed some giggles. These ladies cover just about everything in these short essays (yes, there are some politics too).

You get to know both women through the essays they write- whether you are already a reader of theirs or this collection of essays is new to you.  And they also narrate the audiobook, which makes it even better! 

I thought from the cover that this was going to be a book to gear you up for the summer, but holidays and elections are mentioned, so it can really be listened to at any time!

If you are a woman, you need to listen (or read) these books! The titles of the books in this series just shows the humor and honesty these ladies possess. 

Bring on more books to the series ladies!

My February 2024 Reads


It’s March 1st and here are my February reads!!  I listened to four audiobooks in February. I’m slowly but surely getting through a physical book. There is nothing wrong with it, in fact I am enjoying it, but life happened! As of working on this post on Monday, I have about 150 pages left of it.  I’ll get it finished soon!

Here is a list of the books in the order I finished them:

The Girl on the News by Elizabeth Carpenter -3.5 stars
Switched
by Sarah Ready- 4.5 stars
You’ll Never Know I’m Here
by Kiersten Modglin 3.5 stars
The Teacher
by Freida McFadden5 stars

My favorite read was The Teacher.  It comes with trigger warnings, so take heed, and I did not expect going in that it would end up being my top read and also a 5 star read! Freida McFadden got me with this one! Knowing the ending I really need to listen to it again!

My ‘least favorite’ was The Girl on the News. It just didn’t work for me. I also think this one is one I need to actually read versus listen to.

What did YOU read in February?
