Laughing is the best medicine

We all have bad days…… we’re only human right? For me if I wake up from a bad nights sleep I will be grumpy from the time I get up in the morning to the time I go to bed.

My salvation is reading. Whatever mood I am in, reading a good book can change it.

So, if i can’t get that long sleep that my body and mind is craving, then reading a funny book can change that.

I’m not talking about a comic book or a book full of jokes, I’m talking about the kind of stories that make you laugh out loud with rude connotations, and ironic personalities that you can relate to on a daily basis. Not the boring, moronic romantic types but the full on damaged individuals who remind us of ourselves.

Makes us feel normal.

So now when I’m having a bad day and need cheering up, I pick up my Kindle and go for those types of books, and find that laughing really is the best cure.

So what are my favourite laugh of loud books so far????

“Seduction and Snacks” by Tara Sivec

IMG_0004

“Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he’s asleep) toddler a better life.

When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.

With Carter’s undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire’s panic that her stretch marks and slim to none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.

Warning: contains explicit sex, profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse. ”

My warning to you is not to read this book in public unless you are used to people staring at you for random out bursts of laughter, snorting and long fits of giggles. This book needs to read at home on the sofa or in bed after a s***y day with a large glass of wine. I promise by the first paragraph you would’ve already had a few LOL’s and that crappy day will be long forgotten.
I don’t want to spoil the book for anyone reading this, but this is hands down the funniest, sarcastic book I have read so far. This book has everything you need without too much drama, from hot bedroom scenes to witty single parenting.

The moment I knew this book was exactly my cup of tea was when i was about a page or so in……

“And let’s face it people, no one is ever honest with you about child birth. Not even your mother.       “It’s a pain you forget all about once you have that sweet little baby in your arms. ” Bullshit.   I CALL BULLSHIT.   Any friend, cousin, or nosey-ass stranger in the grocery store that tells you it’s not that bad is a lying sack of shit.   Your vagina is roughly the size of the girth of a penis.   It has to stretch and open and turn into a giant bat cave so the life-sucking human you’ve been growing for nine months can angrily claw its way out.   Who in their right mind would do that willingly?   You’re just walking along one day and think to yourself, “You know, I think it’s time I turn my vagina into an Arby’s Beef and Cheddar (minus the cheddar) and saddle myself down for a minimum of eighteen years to someone who will suck the soul and the will to live right out of my body so I’m a shell of the person I used to be and can’t get laid even if I pay for it.”
