Book Review: Notes to My Future Husband by The Coquette
This book was written by a woman (who is apparently a popular advice columnist on The Daily) who is letting her future husband know the low down on what being with her will entail. According to the book she is currently single and had (what I interpreted as) a bitter breakup the last guy around.
Well, I definitely agree on a lot of her feelings. A big wedding is dumb, I love red velvet cake, bachelor/bachelorette parties are great, guys should have guy nights after marriage with friends and girls should too. The author is definitely pro separate, yet together lives. She is very modern woman in her theories and does not take any of that macho bull hockey from guys (so she says.)
But here's my beef. First and foremost, she keeps referring to her future husband as "dude." I flippin' hate that... a lot. Secondly, she seems... not... um... how do I put this nicely... like she's destined to be single forever. Granted, I do think that there are plenty of guys who would be okay with her forward thinking attitude. I think people can appreciate her openness and candor, but honestly, I think she's got a lot of things that she seems committed to being absolutes. I think there are guys who would like some say on some of those topics. And she seems a little too bossy and "bitchy" (her words, not mine.) I wish her good luck in finding a guy... but she made it clear she can go through life without one.
Definitely a cute read~ light hearted and witty. I actually gave it to my husband to read some of it just so that he realized he could have had it much worse, lol.
I just hope that the author doesn't find me, because apparently she is not afraid to "cut a bitch."
