summer reading

I finally got my butt over to Target and purchased a copy of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. I know it took forever right? Sorry I was slacking - please forgive me Chelsea for I have sinned. Needless to say I just haven't had the extra spending money lately, but that all changed this week.

Of course upon getting to the book section, I snatched up Chelsea's book only to be greeted by this... A new book by another one of my favorite Jewish, Female comedians - Sarah Silverman. Seriously, I love her more than I could even tell you.

No sooner had I squealed with excitement about this book, Mike was pulling a book off the front shelf and flashing it over to me. ZOMG, are you serious?!?!? I yelled. Then my hands were full with three books. The last being the much anticipated (at least for me)... The Carrie Diaries.

I sat in the isle talking to Mike trying to think of a way to put just one of these books down. NO WAY was I dropping Chelea's book I've been wanting it for too long. And I didn't want to drop my girl Sarah. While I was trying to decide between Sarah and Candace I used my free hand to flip over Kate GROSSlin's book - face down because no one wants to look at her, at least I don't. I gave Chuy a shout out from the cover of his new mini book and told him I'd be back for him later, and then I decided with a nudge from Mike to go ahead and buy all three. *Guilty*

Needless to say, it's 10:40 pm here in Alabama and I've already finished Sarah's book and I loved it. It was raining and falling a flood all day today, so it was the best way to spend a lazy Sunday. The book is not as funny as I thought it was going to be initially (I think I was expecting funny stories like Chelsea tells or more of Sarah's comedy, but it was very informative about the woman she was when she was younger and how she became to be the comedy power house she is today. If you love Sarah, you'll love her book. It's a bit more serious but there are definitely jokes through out that made me chuckle and laugh loudly.

I started Chelsea's book earlier this evening and was already laughing through the first chapter well into the third. I had to slow down, it's past my bed time and there is plenty of time to read the rest of these books.

I hope you all had a great weekend!!!

Pin It!

Sounds like a great day! I spent my Sunday reading most of the day as well! I've not read any of Chelsea's books yet, but they are on my "To Read List".

Okay, I need to go get the Carrie Diaries AND the new Chelsea book. I know I'd love both of those. Not to mention I just cleaned out my bookshelf and have space for a few more new ones... :)

The whole time I was reading your post I was thinking "You have to buy all three." I have a serious book problem. I buy books like most women buy shoes. It's a sickness. I bought a nook so I can stop taking up so much valuable storage space with my books. I'm glad you bought all three and can't wait to hear what you think of The Carrie Diaries.

OMG i LOOOOOVE sarah silverman! she's freaking HILARIOUS!!!! i had no idea she wrote a book. look at her!

and yes chelsea's book is funny too. i still love horizontal life better. let me know how you like the carrie diaries book. i have to say, i'm not a huge fan of the author. i tried reading one of her other books twice (5+ years apart) and i could never get sucked in.

All three of those books are on my "must-read" list...especially Candace Bushnell's newest! Have a lovely Monday (or what's left of it, anyway!)

The Only Girl said...

okay - good to know. I've been leaning towards getting Chelsea's book, and then just today, I heard about Sarah's. I might have to join you.

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Cher - I really liked seeing the other side of Sarah so if you're into that it's a great read.

Mayra - Girl I WISH we were neighbors! I'd be all up in yo' house trying to hang out :) And I have never read any of Candace's work. I only ever watched SATC on tv. I hope that I enjoy this look at Carrie in her younger years.

Kristin said...

I MUST get Sarah's book. I adore her too!

If you like funny books you have to check out Jen lancaster's books. Start with Bitter is the new Black. You will pee your pants with laughter.

This is why Mer Bear and I love each other. I'm also not a SITC fan. Which is crazy, because it's my cup of tea.

I need to get Sarah's book next. And I CRIED through the first chapter of CCBangBang. It was HILAIR. Though I think of all three of her books this one is my least favorite.

hotpants™ said...

I'm not a Silverman fan, but I do love me some Chelsea. Ooh... ooh. ooh! I need to pick up The Carrie Diaries.

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...
