“American Housewife” by Helen Ellis

★★★☆☆ New Release Tuesday!

25472765Every once in a while, it’s refreshing to read something like American Housewife — it’s got short stories varying in length that are super easy to read. It’s a fast read, full of hilarious scenarios, dark mystery, and interesting observation told from all different types of American Housewives: mothers, authors, homemakers, and more.

My favorites were “Dumpster Diving with the Stars,” in which an author participates in a popular show that’s like American Pickers if it were a celebrity contest show. Another worth noting, “The Fitter,” a dramatic scene with a woman trying to keep her handsome, successful husband from being stolen from her. “Take it from Cats” is a hilarious super short that gives you advice learned from cats, like “If someone moves to make room for you, take up more room,” and “If you’re not interested, don’t look interested,” and “Just because you can fit into something tight doesn’t mean that you belong in it.”

Light, breezy, and funny, American Housewife is definitely worth picking up for those times when you don’t want to think, but want to be entertained.

Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
