Why Girls Are Weird (a book review)

Warning: Guys this is very much chick lit so you have been warned.

Why Girls Are Weird by Pamela Ribon, I can't say enough great things about this book! It was one of those books that took you by the nostrils and pulled you in with full force. So now this is my attempt to review it/not give it all away.

I came acrossed the book when I was at a store called Half-Priced Books (a little piece of heaven on Earth) with a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago and normally I like to read the blurbs on the back of the book before I decide if I want it but the cover of this book alone made me just want to pick it up and buy without reading much else besides the tagline-"Sometimes life is stranger than you are." and that alone gives me at least a little hope that I'm not the oddest person out there. But if I am, I'm not complaining either.

The main character is believe it or not, a blogger and a damn good one at that. She reminds me of ChelsTalksSmack in a weird sort of way but I digress. She begins writing at work just to look like she's actually doing something, and before she knows it fan mail is coming in and that's about the time when things start to slightly get out of hand, her ex finds the webpage tells her to take it down after pity fucking her after a family tragedy takes place, and her best friend and family help her navigate her way out of the mess that she accidentally got herself into.

I found this book to be quite relatable and a very well written piece of literature, I hope the other three books that I walked out of the store with are as good as this one was. The author Pamela Ribon actually has a website that she started before she started writing WGAW ( I couldn't find the link to "Squishy" which was her original site) but this is just as good.

Tell me what you guys/girls think about this review type post and I may do more.



  1. This sounds like the type of book I would be interested in! Thanks for sharing! I really need a good book to read lately. I like to read, but if it's not interesting I wont finish it!

  2. I think that you would really like this book Dee, it's easy to get into and the author always leaves you wanting more. As it should be with any great book. :)

  3. Would it be wrong for a guy to read this book? It sounds quite good! :P

  4. Definitely not! It was good, I read it in a week it was so good. :)


Thank you for leaving me an assorted thought of your own. :)
