We Thought You Would Be Prettier: True Tales of the Dorkiest Girl AliveWe Thought You Would Be Prettier: True Tales of the Dorkiest Girl Alive by Laurie Notaro

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“Spammers have filled the thin, narrow space in mankind somewhere in between crystal meth dealers and the Bush administration.”

The first third of this book is hilarious. It does get a bit watered down as it gets closer to the end, but she kept my attention, and that says a lot.
There were moments when I had to wipe tears off my face because I was laughing so hard.
I like books like these – they don’t ask too much of a reader, they are just rants which are only tangentially connected and can be read in any order. I mostly read these stories while drinking coffee after going to the beach – a perfect light summer read.

Some of the parts that made me laugh
ā€œ…Is it just another pore expanding? God, I already have pores the size of pudding cups, that’s the last thing I need, another pore…to fill in with spackle.ā€
