Ciara Knight & the Ninja Captain Alex are hosting another community building blogfest. They have given me the opportunity to tell you about a book I noticed a couple of weeks ago. And, the only way I can really tell you how much I enjoyed this book is by describing what happen to me when I read it.
The book I noticed is That Time of the Month by Emily Shaffer.
Scene #1 – I am trying out a new restaurant near my house. I entered the place and there were about 20 people in a room that really should have only sat about 10 people. And, I order and take out my iPad to read. I ended up with a headache trying to stifle myself from laughing out loud. If I had let go like the story warranted, these people would have thought I was crazy.
Scene #2 – I am sitting in my coffee spot (appropriate considering the setting of the book) and decide to read a couple of chapters before getting into my own work. 4 hours later, I am still reading. It is a bit more rowdy in here so I can laugh to my hearts content. And, I make no progress on my own novel.
Scene #3 – It is 12:00 am. I have had a long day and am tired. I open my iPad just to finish the chapter I was on. At 3 am, I finish the book and am still tired, but happy. And even though I have to get up in 4 hours, I fall asleep giggling.
I won’t spoil the story for you, but something about Ellie, the main character, I could so related to. Like Ellie, I am a former attorney and I want to be a published writer. I am super clumsy (picture tripping over nothing and walking into doors) and have broken, sprained and separated multiple body parts. I tend to cut myself a lot, too. And, like Ellie, I tend to embarrass myself in front of guys I like. That is all I am going to say about that.
So, I noticed this book and you should to. Just make sure you are somewhere where you can laugh out loud and not worry about being hauled off to the funny farm. HAHA!

Hi Emily – sounds like a good choice .. if you can’t laugh through it wherever you are and you go to sleep happy … definitely worth a look – cheers Hilary

If it’s funny and well written, then it’s one for me – onto my tbr pile immediately! Hi – I’m popping in from the blogfest.

Thank You for the shout out Sydney!
Emily found her book already! Thanks for sharing.
Writing with humor can be so tricky, but it sounds like the author pulled it off nicely. 🙂
Sounds like a fun book!
Like someone wouldn’t notice that title. LOL

Don’t think I can relate, but it’s a funny title.
Thanks for participating in our blogfest!
Good choice – I love books that make me laugh. And have you noticed that clumsiness comes with that time of the month? I know mine gets worse then. I can drop the same set of keys three times in a row at certain times of the month, and then other times I’m fine.
what fun! love your choice!
Sounds like a fun read. Emily–please take good care of yourself. No more walking into stuff, eh.
Sorry Sydney, I meant you and not Emily.
No worries. Yeah, I need to be more careful.
