The ninth offering in The Amazing Adventures of an Ordinary Woman series by mother-daughter duo Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella hit the shelves in July 2018. Filled with hilarious essays about everyday life, this book is guaranteed to provide a delightful diversion from your worries.
I See Life Through Rosé-Colored Glasses is the first book I’ve read in this series—in fact, I was completely unaware of its existence prior to reading this book. I had no expectations as a result, but it didn’t take long for me to realize I’ve been missing on some seriously fun reading!
Each essay is short and most are laugh-out-loud funny. I don’t think I stop smiling (and laughing!) while I read this book. When I was younger, I adored reading books by Erma Bombeck, and I can tell you that the comparison to Bombeck’s books (mentioned in the blurb) is merited.
I definitely recommend this book for anyone who finds themselves in need of a light-hearted read. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. As for me? I need to carve out some time to read the rest of this series—I just wish it hadn’t taken so long for me to discover it.
