she's funny

Book Review
Mommywood by Tori Spelling

I wanted to read this book because I read her first book sTori Telling. Plus I've been a fan of her since 90210, and I've followed her closely since she started her reality show: Tori and Dean. She's one funny chick. Very funny, even. Her first book had quite a few of Laugh Out Loud moments that took me by surprise. I thought I would like her first book fine, but I didn't think she would be funny in her writing. Her second book Mommywood, is a good book. But not as good as her first, I think. It talks about her role as mommy while balancing her life. She talks about being a new mom to her little boy Liam and her newborn baby girl Stella. I think part of the reason I didn't like this book as much, is because I couldn't relate as much. I can't help but think that if I was a mom I would have enjoyed this book much more. None the less, Tori Spelling is a good writing, and her details of humor and ways of relating to her readers are what keep you reading. This is an easy read, and reminds all of us that we are just trying to live our lives as best we kind, while finding our own version of "normal". I would definitely recommend this book if you are a mom, like Tori Spelling, or wanting something very easy to read.

I haven't really watched her show very often, but the glimpses I have caught I've been surprised at how normal she seems.

I really like Tori Spelling. I haven't seen her show in ages (we choose to not have cable) and I miss it. I have yet to read either of her books, thanks for the reminder! :-)

So a reminder: If 'Tori' has a story to tell. . . so do you!!!
