The Heart's Invisible Furies
The Heart's Invisible Furies - John Boyne

I entered the giveaway for this book because I remember reading the Boy in the Striped Pajamas when I was in the 9th grade and crying like a little bitch so I was like I trust John Boyne to deliver another good book.

BOI DID HE.

I honestly didn't know what to expect from this book because the summary doesn't give anything away and I was like mehhhhh there is a small chance I might not like it. I'm glad I read it, maybe I wouldn't read this as often as I read some of my other books but there'll be one of those days where you're in one of those moods and I'll pick this up and read it again.

I think it's an important book, you don't see a lot of novels out there with gay characters, or one that go this in-depth into that character's life. And it talks a lot about the atrocities and struggles that gay people suffered in Ireland and perhaps still endure to this day (I can't say for sure as I'm not an expert on Ireland or even really keep up to date with Irish news). And the amount of detail that was gone into had me shook but I think that was mostly due to the fact that I've never read a book like this before.

Like ever.

I really liked Cyril as a character, he did some shady things throughout his time but considering the fact that the story is told from his point of view, it was pretty understandable. He's really funny, and sometimes makes really morbid jokes and then you find yourself laughing at what he says and thinking dear God does this make me a bad person for laughing. I liked the ways that he so openly made fun of certain people to their face and the clueless response from those people who hadn't picked up on the fact that he was mocking them.

Some of the shit happened to him was honestly so wild (view spoiler)

And you feel for Cyril, and it's kind of hard not to considering he's a gay man living in 60's Ireland. He struggles with his sexuality and his feelings, and he has a lot of realizations about himself when he meets Bastiaan. The relationship that he had with Maude and Avery was a very strange one but it appealed to me, they got along well, and to be honest his interactions with them were hilarious.

Maude was probably one of my favourite characters just because she was so out there and had the most inappropriate of reactions at the most inappropriate times.

And it brought me great happiness to see that in the end, Cyril had a large family that cared about him and that he was happy because damn it he deserved it for all of the shit that happened to him throughout his life.

TL;DR: Give this a book a shot, maybe you won't like it, but you probably will.

Sex, Soup, and Two Fisted Eating: Hilarious Weight Loss for Wives - Katie Robles,Gregg Bridgeman,Amanda Smith

SEX, SOUP AND THE TWO FISTED EATING: HILARIOUS WEIGHT LOSS FOR WIVES BY KATIE ROBLES Was skeptical wanting to read this book but the author in chat assured us we would be laughing. She was right! Besides having discussions about sex, soups and religion you just can't see it all going together but it does. There are quotes from all over the Bible to back up what's being said. It's basically a book about a lifestyle including sleep, soup and exercise. We follow the Mediterranean lifestyle and this sounds very similar to it as the food is very healthy. Lots of recipes but no nutritional information but you can tell from the healthy ingredients it will taste good and still be good nutrition wise. Love how she tells you to experiment with all aspects of this til you get the right combination to make it all work for you. For her it helped solve her weight problem and high cholesterol problem. For us it's just a way of life now-don't want any more heart attacks. What causes us concern is still seeing all the bad food others eat at work to no avail telling them to better themself-they want no part of it=maybe after they have a heart attack they will be persuaded. Love resources by chapter although she's not a licensed nutritionist she's done her homework! I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review.

I Work at a Public Library: A Collection of Crazy Stories from the Stacks - Gina Sheridan

After I started my dream job last year, my mom bought me a copy of I Work at a Public Library: A Collection of Crazy Stories from the Stacks by Gina Sheridan. (Thanks, mom!) I'm actually glad that I waited to pick this up because of the experiences I've already had after working as a Children's Librarian just a few months. (Don't worry. I'll remember them in my future memoir.) It still would have been funny back in December but it's exponentially more hilarious comparing it to my own experiences. (Note: If you don't work in a public library you'll still think this book is a hoot.) Sheridan has amasseds a collection of true things that have occurred in public libraries all over the world on her blog aptly named I Work at a Public Library which she started when...she started working at a public library. (I think you get where this is going from the title right?) It's organized according to the Dewey Decimal System and absolutely bursting with hilarious, heartwarming, disturbing, and disgusting tales. If you don't laugh out loud at some of these or gasp in shock then you're probably an automaton (and I'm terrified of you). Whether you're a library nerd at heart or just want to get a glimpse behind the scenes of where the library nerds gather this is the book for you. 10/10 and already trying to get all of my co-workers to read it. :-)

Tijuana Donkey Showdown by Adam Howe
Tijuana Donkey Showdown - Adam Howe

 

This is one of the funniest books I've read in my entire life. 

 

Reggie Levine is the likable bouncer at The Henhouse and just wants to disappear into the men's room with his magazine and do his business. Unfortunately, he's unable to do that. Local used car guru Harry is busy getting his head dunked in the only toilet bowl available and it's making a damn mess. So begins Tijuana Donkey Showdown. 

 

Off the top of my head this story features:  an extremely well endowed drug mule, (and when I say mule, I mean a jackass and when I say well endowed I mean WELL endowed), a circus strongman, a sexy veterinarian, a gas station/zoo, (WTF??), a Chinese Crested Terrier that likes to hump legs, an overweight stripper and, (wait for it)....Nic Cage. (That's right, he spells it Nic. Supposedly, what do I know?)

 

I laughed out loud for most of the time I was reading this book. My husband thought I was nuts last night, and my coworkers thought the same, just now at lunch. When I thought things could not go more over the top, they did just that. (Literally, dangling from a giant inflatable used car guy balloon.)

 

This story was fast paced and in your face! I recommend it to fans of down and dirty stories that leave no holds barred. You might be offended, you might think it's disgusting, but I guarantee you this-you WILL be laughing. Well done, Mr. Howe! Well done!

 

You can get your copy here: Tijuana Donkey Showdown

 

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest feedback. This is it.*

Phil! A Hilarious Account of Everything by R.P. Momsen
Phil!: A hilarious account of everything - Mr R P Momsen

 

syns

 

Billions of years ago, our universe was born. Not really that terribly exciting for most life forms except of course yourselves… and, well, Phil. The poor bastard who’s had to watch over all you people the last billion or so years.

Well, finally after years of listening to all your griping, bitching and whining, always with some imaginary being getting all the credit, he’s finally had it!

Phil has decided to explain what the world is, why you’re here and how you can evolve finally into a species worth talking about at parties.

In this hilarious actual account, Phil takes two unwitting Physicists on the adventure of their lives, which isn’t saying much for a couple of physicists, and shows them what life, the universe, and lovely little corner pubs really is all about. They’re transported to other dimensions to meet their better-looking selves, get taken prisoner by an evil but very good looking race, fly through black holes and help the creation of a new planet all while their greatest challenge hangs in the balance, saving earth from the evil, and best dressed, species the universe has ever seen.

Will they save earth? Have all the years of hard work Phil has done creating you beings be lost? Does any of this really matter?

 

my though

 

Going into this book I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but turns out I really enjoyed this book.

It was short (for me) and super funny.

Phil, creator and over-watch of us little humans, tells us what he really thinks of us and our behavior and actions.

Phil is just plain hilarious, as he retells important events on earth and his input in our doing.

This is kind of a difficult book to review as it is rather short and I don’t want to giveaway anything.

So I just make it short.

Super funny with plenty of loud out loud moments, it is well written and easy to follow.

Has also quite a few pop culture references in it.

Overall I highly recommend this funny little book if you looking for a good laugh.

I rate it 4 ½ ★
