Are you a woman who has ever looked in the mirror and thought, "How did my mother get in my bathroom?" Have you gone through years of night sweats and seismic mood swings, leaving you with a metabolism that forces you to choose between wine and carbs (so you haven't had a bagel in eight years)? Did you wake up one morning in someone else's body? Then you will love this book. If you ever made a regrettable hairstyle choice, finally conceded that thongs make you look like a Weeble in dental floss, or wished your Hubs would learn that grabbing your boobs every time you walk past him with a load of laundry is not foreplay, then you will love this book. Who Left the Cork out of My Lunch? is chock-full of funny, informative how-to lists, hilarious advice columns, and sharp personal anecdotes that cover subjects from menopause (are we done yet?), empty nest syndrome (sob!), and grandchildren (yay!), to sex (better after fifty), marriage (he said what?), age-appropriate fashion (what does that mean?), cosmetic intervention (to Botox or not to Botox?), diet fails (#972), beauty tips from Mom (still true), and confidence (fabulous after fifty). Laugh along with author Vikki Claflin and her amusing advice on how to let go of our youth and start rocking our middle age. Are you ready?

Who left the cork out of my lunch? is an often amusing collection of blog-like articles about coping with middle age and marriage. Although probably primarily geared towards female readers, there are several advice type chapters that could prove highly educational for husbands (e.g. How to compliment your wife). Due to the short chapters and the frequent use of lists, this was a very quick read and great for picking up in-between other stuff when I needed some fun entertainment. If you're a girly girl you will probably relate to many of the topics far more than I managed to. I am not into reading about make-up, fashion or plastic surgery advice, so there was a lot I couldn't identify with at all. Too much focus on outer appearance, but I really enjoyed the topics about attitudes, moods and communication, about children and grandchildren and some of the little anecdotes the author shared. I enjoyed the writing style and found it engaging. The author's personality really shines through, but I found that certain things were mentioned repeatedly and topics revisited. Many thanks to Booktrope for my copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
