I’ve read a lot of serious books recently and I Am Funny Like That was just what I needed right now. Some light-hearted fun, and I know books claim to be able to make you laugh out loud, but this one really did. Behind a lot of the humour is an underlying commentary at modern life and society that is as insightful as it is funny. After learning that Escott’s book was based on her blog posts I went to look at that and can see there’s a lot more material for future books. So now I’m a fan and eager to see what comes next. The kind of book you immediately love and want to give copies to friends so you can discuss it with them.

Reviewed by Alyssa Elmore for Readers' Favorite I Am Funny Like That: A Funny Look At Life by Helen C. Escott is a heartwarming compilation of humorous stories that will make you laugh and cry. Written first as a blog, the author turned her very funny and meaningful stories into a large, funny book about life! A perfect book for a mother, daughter, or even spouses to read together. I Am Funny Like That will have you rolling on the floor with laughter or crying in sympathy with the author. The author did a fantastic job of showing you how to keep a humorous outlook as one travels the ups and downs on life's emotional roller coaster. This book is a must-read for the frazzled mother and the menopausal woman. It helps remind us that life is made up of little moments; only we have the power to decide how to respond to them. Responding with humor is always best. Being a mother, I could easily relate to the author's stories. Life changes when you have a child, but for the better. At times, in the daily battles, the sweat, grime and snot, the sickness, the disappointments and heartache, and the constant, desperate need to be the Best Mom, we forget to have fun. We forget to be happy. We forget to just be in the moment. I Am Funny Like That: A Funny Look At Life by Helen C. Escott reminded me to stop and enjoy my life, my child, and forget about what other people think about me and about my family. It reminded me to laugh when a mishap happens instead of flipping out because it's another mess, another thing for me to deal with. It reminded me, it's Life. I am grateful that the author took the time to remember. This book is both funny and inspirational and would make a great gift.

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite I Am Funny Like That: A Funny Look at Life by Helen C. Escott made me laugh out loud many times, shake my head, and say "WOW, I can relate to that." Several times I had to read my husband a passage that was so us, I just had to share it. Every short story has an "I known what you mean, I’ve thought that too" feeling. There was no order or pattern to the collection, rather it just dealt with such funny incidents as granny panties, what do they really look like; what does sexy lingerie consist of; the stress of Christmas decorating; fathers, mothers and grandmas; going to the bathroom; the misery of wearing Spanx; shopping; tweenagers; getting along with our daughters and so much more. It is impossible not to look at the funny side of how we act and what we say after reading I Am Funny Like That. Helen C. Escott has taken the everyday world and found humor and happiness in all kinds of situations. If every once in a while you like escaping the mystery, intrigue, romance, science fiction stories, then this is a must-read. I could so relate and found myself laughing both at myself and with Helen Escott in so many of the stories that is impossible not to give this book a five star rating, as it truly is all it claims to be – A Funny Look at Life.
