    • I am already a big Jennifer Fulwiler fan so I expected to enjoy this - and I did! If you're an exhausted, maxed out, yet happier every day mom, then this book is for you!


    • Loved it!! Can completely relate to so much of this, which makes it all the more humorous. This really is laugh out loud funny and beautiful at the same time!



    • Some parts had me laughing out loud!A lighthearted read. It was a short enjoyable read. Jennifer can be quite funny explaining situations in her life. I could see myself thinking the same thoughts and realizing the absurdity of life sometimes. It was a great book to read by the pool and to take me away from the ridiculous repetitive media overload of politics and hatred and back to our simple day to day hilarious struggles which we at least have some control over.



    • Summary of review: this book is about scorpions and how you don't want to ever move to Texas. Because scorpions. ;DI read this because I could borrow it for free from (because otherwise I might as well go read blog archivesbut then that would have taken me longer and would have led down more rabbit trails, so considering the $2.99 price you may just want to buy it). But all I have to say is "Jennifer Fulwiler you didn't tell us almost ALL of the stories in this book had to do with scorpions! I [...]


    • I very much enjoy Jennifer Fulwiler's work; if possible I would probably rate this a 3.5 stars instead. As a reader of her blog, there wasn't a lot new in this book. I was expecting that this would be the case though, as it often is with essay collections from bloggers, so I wasn't too disappointed. It was also a little short, I easily read it in a couple of hours, but since I got it from Kindle Unlimited I didn't feel like I had overspent or anything. All that said, I enjoyed the essays, and la [...]


    • Often, when bloggers put out ebooks consisting of content available for free on their website, which I've probably already read, it seemske a test, maybe. Are you dumb enough to pay for this? I have a bridge for sale, too! At first, I didn't buy this on principle. Then I realized *I* was never going to dig through the archives to find posts that would be fun to read again (or for the first time). That almost sounds like something I would pay for! $2.99, maybe?It was totally worth it. I remembere [...]


    • This collection of short stories -- really a best-of series of blog posts -- was a joy to read. I kept finding myself interrupting my wife to read a section out loud. It was a quick read overall, and each story was quick in itself -- great for when you have just a minute or two for a quick, funny pick-my-up.A few reviewers on complained about the repetition. Is there some repetition? Sure, the themes repeat, particularly the scorpions. That doesn't mean they aren't funny, and it doesn't mean th [...]


    • Laughing Out LoudI really did laugh out loud while reading this book . And if I wasn't before I am now afraid of scorpions; however, I continued to laugh at the entire book . I decided to read this book because I found out that Jennifer Fulwiler is going to be a guest speaker in Atlanta and so I wanted to learn something about her . Now I know she's going to be one person I listen to at the convention I'm attending . Jennifer's book was entertaining , humorous , so much more , but what I really [...]


    • Scorpions in one's life may be real or metaphorical.unfortunately for Jen Fulwiler, it's both.This is a compilation of hilarious essays she's written on her blog over the years. What I really loved about this is that Jen does not take motherhood as well as society wants. Her views are mined, I'm sorry, but she makes me even more glad I don't have any kids. Since I only started hearing and reading her work in the past year, this was a great set for me to get my hands on.


    • I started reading this while waiting for my mom to get out of surgery. This book was so funny and refreshing, it helped me take my mind off everything else. I love how real Jennifer Fulwiler is, even about her flaws. Great read for anyone feeling overwhelmed with life in general. Made me laugh out loud SO many times!


    • Is this the deepest, most intellectually stimulating book that I've ever read? No. Was it hilarious? Yes. 'Was it relatable? Yes. Mostly, I'm just grateful to Jen Fulwiler for admitting to her her own humanity and amusing me with it.


    • WonderfulJennifer Fulwiler feels like someone I should be best friends with. Her hilarious and touching essays made me feel like there was someone else who gets it. This is a perfect quick read for the busy, burnt out, maybe slightly overwhelmed Catholic mama.


    • I'm giving this book 5 stars because it made me laugh like a crazy person and it's cheap.I read it while I was laying down and nursing my young'un. I realized I was looking forward to the next time I could read it for a few minutes.


    • Unequally SpiritualThis was a blast to read. Ms Fulwiler has a unique way of connecting everyday life and spiritual well-being. Who would have thought that scorpions serve a useful purpose




    • Even though I read them all when they were blog posts, her insights are still incredible and hilarious. Highly recommended.
