a book in review!

Brief Summary:

How can one person attract so much disaster? 

Quirky, clumsy, and eager-to-please Karly has more than her fair share of bad luck. 

Waaaay more. 

We first meet our 29-year-old accountant in her loud (the fire alarm is going off) and smoky (she’s trying to bake) kitchen. During the chaos, Karly is dumped because of misunderstandings over a divorce lawyer she didn't hire and an affair she didn't have. This comes just weeks after performing a very efficient audit on a company…that wasn't actually a client. 


Single and unemployed, Karly continues tripping through life, both metaphorically and physically. She thinks her luck may be turning when she meets the perfect man but in true-to-Karly form, manages to scare him off. And he isn’t just “not returning her phone calls” scared but more “sprinting away across the parking lot screaming like a banshee” scared. 


Just as she thinks it can't get any worse, it inevitably does. Is Karly destined to lead a life of loneliness and poverty or does fate have something else in mind?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Karly is an extremely likeable lead character. She's quirky which leads to tons of laugh out loud moments. There are so many times when you think "this is my life!" This book is the perfect funny read that will bring you out of a funk! All of us have "tripped through" life at one point or another, this 4 star read is just another reminder everyone else does too, xo!
