Review #8 (kind of): Julie and Julia by Julie Powell or Laugh out loud slices

I finished Julie and Julia by Julie Powell and I have decided not to give it a full review.

It's out there. The movie is huge. yada yada.

The book is a riot.
Well written. Funny.
Absolutely a hoot that took me no time to finish.

There were pieces of this book that just had me rolling. It was quite a delight to read someone that has the EXACT same sense of humor as you.

So here's what I will share. A few of the Laugh Out Loud Slices (directly taken from the book)

"I love my husband like pig loves shit!"

(she is at a not so popular play) " Oh my God! That red-headed guy from the prematurely canceled Joss Whedon outer space-western series was in that godawful thing we saw at the Belasco with Kristen Chenoweth that was open for about a week and a half"

And I have to mention she drinks gimlets and loves Buffy.

Enough said. You must all read it for Buffy fans everywhere.

Happy Reading!

I never felt compelled to read this (not sure why) but definitely want to see the movie. I've def. heard great things about it though!

I think half my love for this book was when I found out she liked Buffy.
