Why My Third Husband Will Be A Dog


Title: Why My Third Husband Will Be A Dog
Author: Lisa Scottoline
Type: Humour/Non-Fiction
Pages: 286

Synopsis: In this book, Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline shares this collection of some of her real-life experiences that she originally wrote for her newspaper column. From discussing her two ex-husbands aptly named Thing One and Thing Two, to being braless in the ER to discussing her anatomically incorrect pup, Tiny Tony, Scottoline will have you laughing out loud.

My Thoughts: It's rare for me to find a book that actually makes me laugh out loud. This is one of those books. I'd be reading this book on the couch snickering to myself with my hubby looking at me like I'm crazy.

This book feels like good girl talk with one of your best friends. Surprisingly (or maybe not) I agree with Scottoline on many of her topics -- the evil of Spanx, verbal interrupting as a sign of enthusiasm (sorry everyone but it's true) and the true woman's porn ... real estate ads (well, mine are house plans --- potato, po-tah-to). If I try to re-tell some of her funnier moments in the book it won't come off half as funny as she wrote it. So read the book for yourself. :)

Scottoline is known for her amazing suspense novels but this book lets us see the other side of this author. I'm hoping that she'll put out another book like this one.

My Rating: 4.5/5 (a really, really good read)

You're the second blogger I've seen rate this book and the other was a good review as well. I've never read anything by Lisa Scottoline so in order to get a little feel for her writing I bought Lady Killer over the weekend and just started reading it.

Mags,
I've read several Scottoline books before (not sure if Lady Killer was one of them) and I've always liked them. This book I picked up at the library based on the fact that it was by Scottoline but also ... I liked the cover lol. Amazing how many good books you can get just by picking fairly randomly. :) I hope you like Scottoline ... she has a lot of books out there. :)
