The Brenda Diaries by Margo Candela is an entertaining story about an average twenty-something girl that is a compete commitment-phobe. I initially found out about Brenda through Twitter, as I followed her tweets and blog posts about a variety of characters in her life. Brenda is hilarious, caring, and a bit satirical. In her diary, Brenda whines about her boyfriend, best friend, co-workers, and bosses but in her life she ends up helping and humoring them. I have a friend that was a notorious temp. She was much like Brenda in that she enjoyed her temp work. The difference is that my friend wanted a full time job where Brenda is perfectly happy with the tumultuous lifestyle that temping brings. While I loved Brenda and all of the other characters in the book, I believe Candela was a bit too nice to Brenda. I hope in the coming books Brenda is faced with challenges, heartbreak, and inner-change. I also hope that Brenda becomes more settled and eventually finds happiness with her pink toilet. Overall, this book was a mix of Bridget Jones and Shopaholic. Funny, witty, sarcastic, and an easy read. Keep Reading!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A funny, sarcastic and totally believable novel in diary form about a temp trying to figure out her work life and her love life at the same time. The twitter feed (@BrendaDiaries) is hilarious, too, and well worth following. I can't wait to read the next installment in Brenda's messy life.Was this review helpful?
