This book is a lot of fun to read if you want something lighthearted and witty. The main character is insecure, flawed, wonderfully honest and authentic. She is far from perfect, makes mistakes, and knows it, but gets through her days with a blazing sense of humor. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

I really enjoyed this book. It takes you through the birthdays of a woman who always tries to have a great outlook, despite her crazy parents, obscure friends, and annoying relationships! It will keep you laughing the entire time!

I anticipated a sly, witty look at the world of a single woman over 35, which this started out to be. But I became really disturbed by the dysfunction surrounding the character's relationship with her parents. There is nothing sly or witty about a 30-something woman who can't walk away when mean, hurtful words are the inevitable outcome of a family gathering. I wanted to see her stand up for herself, instead of chronicling another failed year.

This book started off on a bad note, ended on a bad note, and the middle wasn¿t much different either. I expected the character to actually learn from her past and attempt to better her future 'her goal by the way'. It never did get better, only worse. Each chapter 'birthday' was filled with the same disturbing relationship with her parents, the same dating problems, and the same negative attitudes. At the end of each chapter, the character sets goals for the next year and each year they are the same. She never learned anything nor did she change what she thought was wrong with her life. It was as if I was reading the same chapter over and over¿very monotonous.
