My Thoughts:

Rude Bitches Make Me Tired is columnist and author Celia Rivenbark’s seventh book. Though I have never actually heard of her, I couldn’t resist the the title as I was desperate for something light and silly to read after a busy, chaotic week.

Rude Bitches Make Me Tired purports to be an etiquette guide for modern dilemmas discussing appropriate, and inappropriate, behaviour in regards to dealing with, amongst other things, funerals, dance mom’s, Facebook, PDA’s (public displays of affection) and dinner parties. Mixing personal anecdotes with snarky advice, humour tends to take precedence over wisdom. There are many lines that will make you laugh out loud, several that will make you cringe and a few that will have you shaking your head in disbelief at the decline of polite society. Personally though I’m with Rivenbark on thinking it would be ‘as funny as hell’ to slam a cart into the chatty b*tches blocking the grocery store aisle knocking them sprawling like bowling pins, and that anyone who does not respond to a RSVP is an inconsiderate loser, and worse.

If you are sensitive to profanity then this is not the books for you, but if you need a laugh, and are curious if it is appropriate to email your condolences to a bereaved family, then Ride Bitches Make Me Tired is a quick, amusing read.

    Sounds like a good one, Shelleyrae. Would you consider adding it to the Laugh Out Loud Books collection over at Carole’s Chatter? Cheers
