She, Myself & I

The Cassel sisters have little in common besides a pair of wacky parents and a maddening knack for eluding happily-ever-after endings. But when their lives require damage control, only a dose of sisterhood will do.

Paige, the oldest, is a go-getter divorce attorney who’s reeling from her own disastrously failed marriage–and the fact that her ex has suddenly come roaring out

Liked this book for the many, many references to real life stuff that I always think, but rarely see reflected in books. Like this one,which I thought was hysterical:

"I slipped out of bed and padded to the bathroom. I had to pee and my breath was foul. I've never understood how in movies couples wake up and stare dreamily at each other first thing in the morning, falling into one another's arms before they use the bathroom or gargle mouthwash. Was I the only person who woke up with a mouth that

i'm still really liking whitney gaskell's style of writing after a couple of books. cute read, not quite as compelling as mommy tracked, but still held my attention. i could have done without the third sister though.. her subplot felt shallow.

Truth be told, I have never read anything ‘fluffy’ before, so I was quite intrigue.

The book centered on not only ONE character but THREE! sisters going through life at a point of post-divorce from a gay husband (Paige), post-pregnancy and building a new career (Sophie) and dilemma on changing of career direction (Mickey). These, on top of the news that their long divorced parents, who cannot see face to face, are dating each other and may decide to tie the knot again!

Keep an open mind and you wi
After falling in love with Gaskell's style in Testing Kate, I had to rush out and check out some more of her books. Thankfully, my first experience with Gaskell's work wasn't a fluke, for this was another fun, fast read. A book about three sisters, told in three parts, from each sister's perspective. Very hard to put down at times. Cute!
Very enjoyable. This is the first book by this author that I had the pleasure to read and can honestly say that I enjoyed it so much that I've since gone on to read all of her other books.

First book I've read by this author and I wanted to read one of her books for years now. Well it was worth the wait. This is a book about 3 sisters and they all have their voice, chapters in this book.
What I liked most is the humour. My kind of fun. A bit sharp and dark.

I will give a few examples:

What I also liked it was realistic, the way the family talked with each other. There are so many books where the conversations are so stupid, but here I felt like how I can speak to my sisters. recognit
I really wanted to like this book. I wanted to be able to finish it, but I couldn't.

I had some issue with the way the book was written. There were grammar mistakes and some short, choppy sentences that could have used some work. But, I liked the author's voice so I pressed on past it - I am willing to lower my standards grammatically if the story is compelling enough. I tried really hard to like the characters and, though I had some issues, I was doing decently up until the point that it switche
To be honest, I tried this book because I could not find my usual authors; but boy was I pleasantly surprised! She, Myself & I is such a good easy read, and very tough to put down. I am not sure my grades will thank me for it.

Paige, Sophie and Mickey are so lovable really, even if the middle sister came across as a whiny wife and sister. I loved the first section on Paige most, and I think that was what really kept me reading: her character, her bossy yet loving side, her insecurities with g

Okay for a light summer read.

This book had possibilities. I liked the idea that it would be written with three different voices. But it came across as three bad Harlequin romances stuck together. I didn't care about any of the characters and the three sisters were so whiny and indecisive.

I did find the writing style pleasant to read ... that's the only reason I stuck with it 'til the end.

I wouldn't recommend this book.

Summer chick lit focused on three adult sisters and their love lives. Each woman a bit scarred by their parents tumultuous divorce when they were children. Each one stunned as their parents get back together. Not very well written or I insightful and very predictable. But a quick read nevertheless.
I really enjoyed this one. Told from three different perspectives, you still get to see what is happening in everyone's lives. Three very different stages in life - dating, marriage, children - but all with common themes of fear, loneliness, regret, joy and desire. Great read.
Interesting format - instead of a novel, it's more like three overlapping short stories. I, personally, liked the first one the best, with the oldest sister.

Set in Austin, Texas, if you're interested in that sort of thing.
Rediscovered this author at the library. I enjoy her writing style. Three sisters narrate this book in three sections. Quirky family drama with a happy ending. Nice and lite for summer reading.

i really enjoyed it- fun chick lit from the point of view of three difference sisters. they're all a little neurotic in their own ways but aren't we all?

An enjoyable story about three sisters all at different points in their lives, but there's nothing that really makes it stand apart from others in this genre.
This book was an easy and enjoyable read. The three sisters were interesting characters and the way their lives all inter connected was fun.
I liked this book ... It was fun reading from each sisters perspective ... A little predictable at times but it made me smile quite a bit! :)
Cute book with 3 sections each focusing on one of the sisters. It seemed a little unfinished, but was fine chick lit.

Chick lit. A snipet of time in the lives of three sisters, told sequentially in each of the sister's voices.
Cute and light-hearted. Exactly what I needed for my first book after two and a half months of studying!
Cute chick lit, divided into 3 sections each told from the perspective of one of 3 sisters. 3.5 stars.
I especially liked during the mom's wedding when the sisters make fun of the guests. So real!
Cute simple book easy to read..... nice for a change from heavy books I've been reading
I liked this book, but not as much as Whitney Gaskell's other book, "Mommy Tracked."
Fun, happy chick lit with happy endings all around which makes me happy.
Story of three sisters--fairly predictable, but easy reading nonetheless.
Hilarious and witty, easy and nice book to read. A toast to sisterly love!
