My thoughts ...
One sentence summary: Anna David is in her 30s and not sure if she's made the right choices in life, so she decides to follow the advice of a book called Sex and the Single Girl by Helen Gurley Brown to bring about some changes.  

The good: 
The author has a great writing voice.  I could hear it so clearly in my head and I found myself laughing half the time at the things she puts herself through to find a guy.  But she never comes across to me as desperate.  She's an intelligent woman who's feeling a little lost and who's hardly ventured out of her comfort zone. (Something I can relate to!).  So hearing her adventures into online and speed dating, trying to new things and traveling was so interesting and fun to read about.  

The bad:  
I don't have anything bad to say.  If I had to pick something super nit-picky, I'd say sometimes the way she jumps from topic to topic can be kind of jarring.  

Do I recommend?:  
YES! Especially if you are a single gal like me.  

Happy reading!

  3. This sounds like it would be a lot of fun to read! I enjoy a good memoir every now and then, and this is definitely going on my list.
