Meg @ Literary Menagerie

I read I Don't Know How She Does It probably five years ago (it would have been my sophomore year of high school I think). If course, I couldn't relate to it personally, but I do remember enjoying it--especially the way it begins and ends with the rotten fruit in the basket. It seemed so reassuring, like whatever choice you made, you'd be making the right one.

BTW -- I think my cover was various shades of blue, rather than pink. LOL!

Good luck!!!!


I hope all goes well! My hubby's working from home this morning until some of the snow here melts.

I always found it difficult to go back to work because at the time I hated my job. I'm sure it's a completely different story for you and I hope it goes well. Wishing you an ease free transition.

I love I Don't Know How She Does It! I wish Allison Pearson would write more! This book was laugh out loud hilarious. It was one of the first books my book club read. Good Luck today and with the weather. I am in Texas and can't complain!


I agree, I wonder if/when Pearson has another book coming! Well, I'm at work and so far so good. Thanks everyone for your good wishes!

Good Luck to you going back I know it's a trying thing to get adjusted to i often thought about people i dealt with at work if they only knew how little sleep i was running off of they may would cut me some slack, hope things will go good for you : ) take care, Lori Barnes


Oh! I loved this book when I read it a while ago! So much fun... and, yes, scary in lots of ways!:)


I read this one sometime back and I thought it was hilarious but also a tad sad. Even with excellent baby sitters / daycares it's still hard for a working mom to raise kids.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
