Meeting Mr.Wrong by Stephanie Snowe

You know when you are reading a book and it is sooooo good that you get annoyed when you have to stop reading to change a diaper/feed your children/go to the bathroom etc?

No?

Maybe that's just me.

ANYWAY that is totally how I felt today reading Meeting Mr. Wrong- The Romantic Misadventures of a Southern Belle. It is hilarious. I read it cover to cover grinning the whole time.

The author- Stephanie Snowe- is someone I am familiar with from reading her blog- Jason. For the Love of God. I'm not sure how I first came across her blog but it was ages ago and after reading one post I was hooked and have been reading daily ever since. She is, by far, one of the most enjoyably hilarious bloggers out there. And her book? Equally as enjoyable.

I could absolutely picture all the disastrous dates from Stephanie's descriptions. The story flowed well and was easy to read. It read like I imagine Stephanie would talk... like she was sitting across the room telling me the stories instead of me reading them on paper.

Here is a brief rundown from Amazon.com...

Product Description
'Don't email me if you want a supermodel. I'm twenty-two, divorced, and I have twins. I'm also overweight, unattractive, and have no education to speak of. I'm pretty much not going to bring anything to the table except the fact that I'm pretty nice and won't ask you to pay my bills. Here's my email address. Don't email if you're full of it.'

With this ad, Stephanie Snowe relaunches herself into the world of dating. In this real-life account, she discovers that the search for Mr. Right can include a lot of wrong turns. With light-hearted sass, Stephanie introduces us to each Tom, Dick, and Denny, and their neuroses, pets, mullets, lies, and puking.

A girl can get discouraged having to deal with dive-bombing birds, first-date proposals, and eavesdropping mothers. Is there a knight in shining armor out there with a higher IQ than his horse? Stephanie hopes so.

About the Author
Stephanie Snowe is the author behind the blog, 'Jason. For the love of God'. In her spare time she does things like hold down a full-time job, parent her children, and pander endlessly to her dog Ginger. She also enjoys plotting elaborate revenge fantasies involving angry monkeys trapped in boxes, and preparing boxed dinners that she pretends are homemade.


This really is the funniest book I have read in ages. I would HIGHLY recommend every single one of you go pick up a copy for yourself or your wife or girlfriend or sister or aunt... you WILL love it!
