    I will always be a little bit heartbroken, I think, that I don t get to actually be best friends with Karen and Georgia

    Here s what you do You make a thousand signs You put them up on street corners and community bulletin boards You hang them from ornate balconies and make them look like the flag of a new country Drag them behind planes and make them circle the cities of the world like you re announcing a new global superpower You turn the signs into clothing like those weird toilet paper ads The signs read KAREN KILGARIFF AND GEORGIA HARDSTARK HAVE WRITTEN THE GREATEST DUAL MEMOIR COLLECTION OF HUMOUROUS ESSAYS SOCIAL STUD...

    I know I m in the minority, but Stay Sexy Don t Get Murdered The Definitive How To Guide didn t resonate with me I much prefer the podcasts, with discussions of true crime and impromptu jokes and antics Not that their how I got here stories weren t interesting, it s that they simply weren t what I wanted from this comedic duo It seemed like they were ...

    A MUST READ FOR ALL 5 I really needed to hear that stars for Stay Sexy Don t Get Murdered Words cannot describe how perfectly pertinent this book was to my present life And if I can get real with you, it s kinda like walking into a deeply personal therapy session And I know the word therapy is weird and scary and defeating, but it shouldn t be I ve gone For 6 years in fact And it changed my life And this book makes you realize that life is messy and hard and you need an advocate to help you get back on track You need clutch friends and you need to forgive yourself.God, I cried so hard during the first two chapters And then some in chapter 5 I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF throughout all of chapter 4 because THAT WAS MY LIFE And I was totally moved when both Karen and Georgia admitted that we re always making mistakes and learning from them and that s OKAY.This book is a collection of essays The topics range from eati...

    Hate to say this but I didn t really enjoy this book I have listened to KG s podcast for a couple of years now and love it, but I didn t feel like their speaking voices translated well to writing Unfortunately, that really is how this book was written it s very informal and sounds like something you would read on a blog, not in a book I know that many people do enjoy that type of writing style which is fine , but it s not my cup of tea One other disappointing thing about the writing was that the humor aspect didn t seem to stick the landing as well as it does in the podcast Karen, for example, typically makes me laugh out loud whenever I listen to an episode Reading her jokes on paper, however, made me cringe Example In the introduction to the book, Karen begins by thanking the readers for being supportive of KG, but about a paragraph into the thank you states Bless us all, but mostly the people who actually spent moneyquit getting your finger grease all over our beautiful, pristine publication and just buy it In fact, buy three Yuck, that just rubs me the wrong way and I did buy it I also wasn t a fan of how this book felt like a self help advice column than a memoir I knew the true crime aspect was going to be toned down a lot, which I honestly didn t mind, but something about KG s guidance kind of bothered me Maybe I just didn t know what to expect and was hoping I would be satisfied with whatever this book would end up b...

    Audiobook read by Karen Kilgariff, Georgia Hardstark, and Paul Giamatti.Parts were recorded in front of a live audience The energy from the people in the room during the live sections were explosive adding a contagious I HEAR YA WOMEN ROCK , energy I enjoyed these women and their life stories about being young scared insecure with themselves confused depressed and dealings with anxiety If Karen heard her parents fighting or felt the stress from their divorce she grabbed her books and her blanket and crawled under the stairway to read for hours Reading was her lifeline Loved hearing about her favorite childhood books Lots of therapy and growing up put these ladies in the drivers seat They eventually grew hair on their chest and kicked some ass if needed.It was refreshing to hear about how these ladies learned to defend themselves from assholes And grow confident in their own skin Karen said We barely get enough time on this planet, so it s crazy spending that time pleasing others at the cost ourselves Paul Giamatti s voice of wisdom betweenthe dynamite female duo was a treasure as well Karen and Georgia are un guarded down to earth real raunchy They offer some great advicefrom real experiences Their lunatic crazy years offers a warning contribution to young women Personally I think young adult women daughters in college years , could benefit from this book the Audiobook being the perfect vehicle Note to sexy beautiful young women Do not get into the car with a s...

    It doesn t matter if you fail Your trying is what sets the tone for your whole life story Think of everything you do as being chapters in your future autobiographical self help book about murder Your career is just another word to help you categorize your journey through life Why not start brave and bold and believing in yourself I ll begin by saying that I m not a Murderino , but my daughter is and we ve listened to a few episodes of the My Favorite Murder podcast together I know who Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstack are and I recognise the value and appeal of what they put out into the world So, from the point of view of a not totally invested reader, I d say that this autobiographical self help book about murder was a thoroughly decent read Karen and Georgia share their life stories stating that many of the details have never been shared with their fans before , and they are open and thoughtful and bring their acid humour to tough topics just like on the podcast On the other ...

    3.5 starsI know I m in the minority of readers who didn t absolutely love this book, but it just wasn t quite what I hoped it would be I heard great things and and was excited to read it, and though it s entertaining, it wasn t as engaging as I hoped it would be I found the authors to be a little irritating, even as I wasn t left unaffected by their stories and what they went through Obviously, this is a person...
