Why Moms Are Weird I put off reading this book for months after I bought it When I first came across this book, it was through , and the title caught my attention, then the positive reviews caught my interest I went looking for it at bookstores around me and couldn t find it anywhere, so I ended up ordering it online When I first received the book, I admit I didn t like the look of it I was worried that I have been duped byreviews, the way I was with The Hating Game worst.book.EVER , so I put I put off reading this book for months after I bought it When I first came across this book, it

online When I first received the book, I admit I didn t like the look of it I was worried that I have been duped byreviews, the way I was with The Hating Game worst.book.EVER , so I put it aside and figured I d get to it eventually Months later, it was still lying there on my bedside table, I picked it up and couldn t even remember why I wanted to read it in the first place or what it was about.The minute I started reading it, I realized how wrong I was to have put it off for this long I knew I was in for a treat, and I was Pamela Ribon is an incredibly talented writer, and I ve come to understand that she started off with her own blog, which then transferred to books That must be why you could relate so much to her writing style, because it is very personable, it almost feels like every section is just another blog post Absolutely wonderful I like the fact that there aren t chapters, butlike moments The whole book works that way, in moments Each section describes a moment in Benny s life and when you put all these moments together you get the entire story, and you see Benny and all the other characters progressing in such a natural way.Yes, I ll admit, as a chick lit, it has its predictable twists and turns, and its typical happy ending, but Ribon does it in such a way that it seemsnatural than other chick lits You relate to all the characters in this story, her mom s strange ways and how each layer is slowly uncovered throughout the story so we really understand why she is the way she is and why she acts the way she does It s endearing in a way, and her methods of moving on are things I can definitely associate with Jami s rebellion although quite extreme are also things you relate with We all wanted to experience that kind of liberation at one point, the sort where you just didn t want to give a shit about anything.I was a little disconcerted with Mickey and Benny s relationship, it moved a bit too fast in my opinion, but then again, there were several passages that took place between them where Pamela Ribon just nails a certain emotion or situation, and I marked them all.All in all, my first for Ribon, but definitely not my last Can t wait to read From the acclaimed author of Why Girls are Weird comes a second hilarious and surprising novel about love and family and the weirdo inside us all Belinda Benny Bernstein doesn t brag about her life in Los Angeles, but she is proud of her independence She s got a job and a place to live, and she even goes out on dates now and again But when Benny s mother and sister get into a car accident, she drops everything to fly across the country and help her injured, unemployed mom The only problem She wasn t exactly invited and back in Virginia she finds herself confronting every issue her family has avoided for years, including her mom s thriving sex life and her sister s wild nightlife Benny sets about fixing everything she thinks is broken at home, including mounds of clutter and the personal lives of the women she loves But she soon stumbles upon a stack of letters that may reveal her mother s darkest secret Benny only begins to understand her mom when she finds herself in a similar dilemma torn between someone she can t have and someone she thinks she shouldn t have If Benny doesn t sort things out before she s sucked into the family vortex of dysfunction, there s no telling when she ll be able to go home again unless this is home, after all I ve been a long time reader of the author, Pamela Ribon s blog Pamie.com and so of course I was very excited to see that she was going to be published Pamie has a way to make you laugh out loud one second and feel heartbreak the next When she published her first book, Why Girls are Weird I bought it the first day I could find it in the stores It was great, and if I had to rate it now I d probably give it an enjoyable 7 10.So, needless to say, I was quite excited to see the author was releas I ve been a long time

heartbreak the next When she published her first book, Why Girls are Weird I bought it the first day I could find it in the stores It was great, and if I had to rate it now I d probably give it an enjoyable 7 10.So, needless to say, I was quite excited to see the author was releasing a new novel, Why Moms are Weird which feature totally different characters but they went with the Weird theme in the title again.The book follows Benny Boobs Bernstein, who is living in LA and just as her life starts going in a great direction, she needs to go home to Virginia to take care of her mother, who s been injured in car accident When Benny arrives home she discovers a her mother s life is not quite what she remembered and as she tried to sort out the pieces she s also forced to face her own realty and how her decisions effect those around her and herself.The premise of the story was great but somewhere along the lines I got lost This novel isn t the light fun the last book was This one goes to a dark place at times as the character is forced to face her family and demons she fights with her self confidence I don t shy away from a novel that goes to dark places but at the same time I feel like this one kind of switched from medium to dark rather quickly and I think it damages the message the author is going for I didn t always agree with Benny s analysis of the events going on around her and while the author tries to keep us sympathetic to all the characters, I was confused by their actions and couldn t sympathize.I really wanted to like this book because I really like Pamieeven though I m only her creepy internet stalker that reads her blog The truth is, I didn t really enjoy this book the way I thought I would There are some parts which were funny and made me smile, but a lot of the time I kept thinking WHAT trying to be on the same page as the author I m giving the book a 4 10 it s not bad, and well written, I just feel like it didn t add up the way it could have Yes, I will read Ribon s next book if she decided to put it out but I won t put this one on my must read recommendation list either This book made me laugh out loud I thought the author was pretty funny Sometimes the characters made me mad, but at the same time I think that s a good reflection on the author because she made them real It s in interesting story about a woman and her mom and sister They have a funny dynamic that s kinda lovable I wouldn t say it s for everyone but at the same time I really liked it There were times I didn t want to put it down. It was not even that great of a story but it was a great book somehow There were a few times were I actually LOL d. I remember reading this in my public library in my early teens, then last year I remembered the title and bought it online. This book is about a woman named Belinda Benny Bernstein She lives in Los Angeles and works as a travel agent She seems to be kind of lost in her life, like she doesn t know where she needs to be She s in and out of relationships and is kind of lonely and not too happy either Her mother and sister live all the across the country in Virginia Benny chose to leave Virginia to follow her actor boyfriend to Los Angeles She ended up staying there even after their break up Anyway, Benny s mo This book is about a woman named Belinda Benny Bernstein She lives in Los Angeles and works as a travel agent She seems to be kind of lost in her life, like she doesn t know where she needs to be She s in and out of relationships and is kind of lonely and not too happy either Her mother and sister live all the across the country in Virginia Benny chose to leave Virginia to follow her actor boyfriend to Los Angeles She ended up staying there even after their break up Anyway, Benny s mother is kind of out there She has an active sex life, which she does not mind talking to Benny about However, Benny is totally grossed out when thinking of her mom having sex Benny ends up flying back to Virginia after her mom and sister are in a car accident which leaves her mom with a broken leg and unemployed She comes back to find out her mom is a hoarder and her sister is still rebellious and chooses the worst relationships for herself Benny sets out to fix everything for everyone until she realizes that she needs to be fixed as well.I thought this book was funny and interesting Benny talked about her weight a lot which got kind of annoying, but in real life most women constantly think talk about their weight This book does have the f bomb in it a good bit, so if you aren t into reading books with cussing then don t pick this one up My favorite character was the mom She was open minded and crazy When I first started reading this book, I thought Benny was pretty normal and her mother and sister needed therapy After reading it, I realized that Benny was just as messed up as they were and needed their help just as much as they needed her s.I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an easy read and a good laugh i put off reading this when it first came out because, if i m being totally honest, i didn t like the title and i didn t like the cover and i didn t think i d be able to relate to it as well as i did with pamie s other books that skepticism held on probably until about page 20.my biggest problem with chick lit in general is that it so often is about Getting A Man i do not give the tiniest fuck about some neurotic woman trying to trick someone into marrying her i am really really interested i put off reading this when it first came out because, if i m being totally honest, i didn t like the title and i didn t like the cover and i didn t think i d be able to relate to it as well as i did with pamie s other books that skepticism held on probably until about page 20.my biggest problem with chick lit in general is that it so often is about Getting A Man i do not give the tiniest fuck about some neurotic woman trying to trick someone into marrying her i am really really interested in reading about neurotic women trying to figure out their lives though, which is why i love pam s books so much there s romance and girl meets boy and blah blah blah, but there s also family and friends and coming to terms with who you are and what you want out of life pamela ribon does better coming of age stories than any non ya author i have ever read.anyway, this is why i loved this book so much i think i loved it eventhan why girls are weird and going in circles, which is seriously high praise coming from me but i mean, i spent a good portion of my saturday reading it when i will have 8 hours of paid reading time on monday, so you know it must be good At the end of this book, there is a little Q A with the author She explains that she struggled with the difference between story and voice while working on this novel But I think she s got it Why Moms Are Weird is not the same story as Why Girls Are Weird, but it projects from the same voice

parts of the book that have their beginning in her Real Life and that s sort of fun, because you don t usually get that with authors On the flip side, it made me feelconnected to the characters and at one point I had to put the book down or I was going to start crying Which is, of course, not a bad review.There is growth in the characters, too, and I always appreciate ending a book on that Maybe it was being in therapy, but I really dislike it when characters remain stuck in their psychoses I deal with enough dogs that won t be learning any new tricks I want to experience canines willing to grow and change.The end of the book also mentions that Pamie started a GeoCities page back in 1998 which led to pamie.com and that without the influence of that site in her life, she d be in a different job, live somewhere else, probably be married to someone else And while the same is not true for me, I also started a GeoCities page in 1998 Fun little coincidence I did not like Why Moms are Weird nearly as much as Ribon s other two novels The story is about Benny, a girl who has moved across the country from her family to California She returns back East to help take care of her mother after she is injured in an automobile accident Her sister lives with her mother, but is too unreliable to take care of their mom Upon arriving she discovers that her mother and sister have become hoarders, so she attempts to help clean up the house and put their lives I did not like Why Moms are Weird nearly as much as Ribon s other two novels The story is about Benny, a girl who has moved across the

their history and their relationships as well as Benny s relationships with a boy she met a week before leaving California and the man she hires to help clean up the house I started out enjoying the book quite a bit, but eventually grew annoyed by the characters and felt like the relationships between the protagonist and her two male suitors were not realistic They both seemed to happen too fast and I couldn t figure out why the feelings were supposedly so deep after barely knowing each other
