Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang

So I haven't been completely honest on my sidebar here....I show that I am reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which I did start (got a whopping 5 pages into it) but then I accidentally picked up my gf's copy of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang started laughing immediately and sort of set The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to the side. 


The first chapter of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang "The Feeling" had me in stitches from laughing so hard.  Completely inappropriate and hilarious all at the same time, this chapter definitely set the tone for the rest of the book.  I loved this book especially due to her constant references to various places around Marina Del Rey, because I knew where she used to live and also know exactly what Ralph's and other various location she refers to are (my gf's and I once were lucky enough to see her our local fave happy hour location Canal Club). 


I chuckled out loud a few times when reading this book.  The dog funeral had me in tears, and the Turks and Caicos trip had me rolling on the floor.  The absurdity of her father was mind boggling and her affectionate nickname "Chunk" that she bestows to anyone she loves or cares for. 


If you like Chelsea Handler's sense of humor you will love this book.  I have already read Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea and I loved it so much!  I preferred it over Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, and still need to read My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands to finish out all of her books.  If you are easily offended or not a fan of pranks or sexual humor, I would just pass right by these books at your local bookstore or library.  However if you like to laugh out loud and don't care who is around to hear you even if you are laughing at really inappropriate things then you should most definitely pick up a copy of any or all of these books. 

So now I REALLY am reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and will hopefully be able to respond to all of your comments asking me what I think of the book.  I hear that it takes a little bit of time to get into but once you reach page 70 (some say 200) you are hooked and cannot put the book down.  I am so looking forward to diving in.

I have to admit I have a celeb crush on her. She is so inappropriate but says many things we all want to say. I too stay up late and most times now just DVR her. LOVE.HER. :)

Love Chelsea! I didn't think her first book was as good but read them out of sequence, still some funny chapters! Dragon Tatoo does pick up, I promise! Book 2 was a struggle for me, but Book 3 is sucking me back in!
