No Laughing Allowed is Fabulously Misleading!


No Laughing Allowed! is the title of one of the funniest things I've ever read. So when the title says "no laughing allowed" what does that mean? It means that when you are a mom or dad (or any person who lives with people) trying to enjoy a moment to yourself someone will come and ruin it. And trust me, when you are reading this you will enjoy yourself. I actually started reading No Laughing Allowed early one morning and had to hold back the laughter to keep the other members of my household from waking up on me.

So what is No Laughing Allowed about? Well that is a very loaded question. Let me tell you what it is. Life Well Blogged's Abbey and Monica collected stories of female bloggers that are HILARIOUS! They are short, sweet, funny commentaries on the female experience. They are stories that any woman from any walk of life can appreciate. How can I say that? Because the lives of the wives and mothers in this book are VERY different from my dating and childless life but I nearly died laughing.

My favorite thing about No Laughing Allowed is that I have the attention span of a gnat and all of the stories are short. Like one or two pages tops. They are short sweet and right to the point. I also love that the stories that were compiled have themes. From work life to marriage. From periods to pregnancy. And of course KIDS! This book covers a range of topics that encapsulate womanhood.

Life Well Blogged did an excellent job of keeping all of the stories in check. The harsh words are stared out like f*ck and things like that. You will be able to figure the words out but your eyes won't be assaulted.

I'm so trying not to spoil but let me tell you some of my ROTFL moments. I cry-laughed when I read about Bexst*r- Keepin' it real since 1979 and her permanent marker fiasco! I also loved when The Truth of Motherhood compared being on your period to Shark Week. This book is filled with self deprecating female humor at it's best! You laugh because it's true and we've been there.

  4. I have a loveseat in the house with a table next to it that I read in. Nice cup of tea, maybe a piece of chocolate or two, and a fluffy red blanket usually accompany me during my book time.
