The Review

This is the perfect read for anyone who is looking for a book that won’t delve heavily into character or narrative based storytelling. Instead this novel brings a series of humorous situations and offbeat lines that only someone with a rich sense of humor could enjoy. From tales of haunted mansions and its bathrooms to the ancient Egyptians and snack foods, this amazing book brings some truly one of a kind humor into the reader’s life.

As the author themselves point out, the novel really does remind me personally of the old SNL Jack Handey sketches that told the same offbeat humor stories and tales that would always throw people off in the most bizarre yet humorous way.  It’s a great way to lighten up anyone’s mood and take readers away from the seriousness of life, and showcases the unique wit and comedy of the author. 

The Verdict

This is a must read book. Although a short read to be sure, the book delivers a powerful punch to the funny bone as readers are transported into this humorous world of the author’s making. Taking the funniest one-liners and odd tales and compiling them into this wonderful collection is sure to make readers laugh and chuckle as they think upon the strange and amusing stories they just read.

CFI! The Book: A Satirical Aviation Comedy by Alex Stone Review

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.

The hilarious and fringe world of aviation comes back into play in author Alex Stone’s second novel, “CFI! The Book: A Satirical Aviation Comedy”. Here is the synopsis:

The Synopsis

An underpaid, overworked Certified Flight Instructor cheats death while attempting to teach a cast of incompetent student pilots to fly at a skeezy South Florida flight school; all in the quest to build flight time so he can get a “real job” at an airline. The planes break, the regs break, metal gets bent, students are lost at sea, and a Top Gun wannabe student, who has four hundred hours of flight instruction, still hasn’t made his first solo flight. “CFI! The Book” is an over-the-top satirical aviation comedy that’s loosely based on real world experiences of flight instruction, but if the FAA asks, this is all strictly fictional.

The Review

It was fun, exhilarating and exciting to jump back into the world of Alex Stone’s fictional, satirical yet all too real world of aviation hijinx. An interesting approach to the satirical aviation comedy series that the author has created, this second book of the author’s actually will surprise readers as it alludes to a prequel setting for the first novel of the author, “Hauling Checks”. You can read my review of that novel using the button below.

The story was sometimes heart-pounding, sometimes realistic but always hilarious as the author showcased many cases of impossible students and shady bosses. From an Italian student who refuses to show up to class, to an entitled student pilot who demands the instructor’s compliance and a sneaky boss who will do anything to squeeze a few more bucks out of these clueless students.

The Verdict

This is a worthy successor to the first novel author Alex Stone published. Witty, charming, sarcastic and real, this was a well written satire that showcases the aviation world in a whole new light. The fusion of aviation rules and insider knowledge of the industry mixed with the hilarious fictional characters and scenarios the author has created made this one of the most unique follow ups I’ve ever read. If you enjoy humorous, satirical works or anything involving the aviation world, then “CFI! The Book: A Satirical Aviation Comedy” by Alex Stone is the book for you. Grab your copy today!

Letters from a Christmas Elf: Unexpected Humor for Any Season by Kirsten and Kurt Johnston Review

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own. 

A family’s life gets a humorous and holiday twist in authors Kirsten and Kurt Johnston’s novel “Letters from a Christmas Elf: Unexpected Humor for Any Season. Here’s the synopsis.

The Synopsis

One of Santa’s trusty Elves is assigned to report on the Johnstons. He follows the lives of Kirsten & Kurt and their eight children, along with a few cats and a dog. The family has gotten older, but wisdom still eludes them as they continue to find new ways to get laughed at without even trying. These letters tell the truth most sane people won’t admit — the naughty, the nice and the nonsense. Does this family deserve anything from Santa? You decide. 

Letters from a Christmas Elf: Unexpected Humor for any Season is 25+ years of real Christmas letters chronicling the witless antics of an ordinary family — resulting in extraordinary humor. 

The Review

This was such a fun book to read. While I would bill it as the perfect holiday read (and just in time for the holidays no doubt), this is the kind of humorous book you could enjoy all year round. Blending a mix of fiction and non-fiction, it’s fun to see the lives of the Johnston family through the magical, holiday lens of this narrator Elf. 

The story is written with a voice that speaks of honesty and humor that showcases the unique bond between this family. What really shone through was how relatable and yet entertaining this family and their story was. They feel like the next door neighbors you bond with instantly, or the fun distant relatives you never knew you had. 

The Verdict

Overall this was a truly fun read. With the holidays over, this book not only brings that holiday spirit back but shows how the spirit of the holidays (which in essence is about the family you spend time with or the people you surround yourself with and make you feel loved) never leaves you when the holidays pass. No matter how stressful, chaotic or painful life may get or how troublesome family members can be, a true family shines brightest when the bond between them is strong and love is in their hearts.

Miranda Sings “Selp-Helf” Book Review:

It’s time for the haterz to back off! That’s right, self-proclaimed internet sensation Miranda Sings has released her step-by-step guide to
living a successful life, and that book is called “Selp-Helf”.

This humourous book manages to expertly retain the same voice and “talent” that Sings herself has on her wildly popular YouTube channel. Written
in the guise of Miranda by her creator and the woman who brings her to life, Colleen Evans, along with her brother Christopher Ballinger, this
book is a self help guide that takes her “Mirfandas” on a process to living life the “Miranda” way. Everything from love life with her baes,
to life hacks to making homemade “shampoo”, to the ins and outs of nailing a job interview, this book claims to have it all. What really sells
this book however is not necessarily the advice being told, but the hilarious voice that it’s told in and the huge attention to detail making this
look like the randomly put together book Miranda Sings would create.

From scrap-book styling pages to easily misspelled words, this book lives and breaths Miranda Sings. Catering to her loyal fanbase and creating
one of the more unique internet-generated books, Colleen and Chris have expertly put together a hilarious life and style guide that is sure to
keep fans and newcomers alike laughing and talking for years to come. It’s quite easy to see why this character has become so beloved and
recognized within the entertainment industry, (having recently garnered her own Netflix original series, Haters Back Off), for it speaks highly
of the creative force behind the internet industry’s leading creators. If you weren’t a fan before, you will be after reading this laugh riot
of a book, so be sure to pick up your copies of “Selp-Helf” by Miranda Sings today!
