Maybe i actually needed those hordes of junior high school kids to take out my rampagey crankiness on because now that i'm working in a calmer library i seem to be venting it on poor feckless Irish authors like Claudia Carroll. It happens once again, i get a book in my box, my hold notification on it, with no recollection as to why i put it on hold (at least this time i had a vague recollection of putting it on hold~so That's progress...) So i set out to read Remind Me Again Why I Need a Man: to ...more

When I saw this book at the library I was attracted to it by the vintage cover art, and the front flap sounded pretty funny. Overall I enjoyed the book, if I did have to suspend my disbelief at times about all the boyfriends Amelia'd had over the years and what they'd become. It felt a lot like Sex and the City meets Dublin, Ireland, right down to when Amelia strikes a refrain that echoes a Charlotte York line almost verbatim: "I've been dating since I was fifteen. I'm exhausted! Where is he?"

Empezó bien, pero llegó un momento en el que me dio flojera y me costó mucho terminarlo, sentí que leía ''Precious'' versión comedia, a la protagonista le pasa de todo y me harta su punto de desesperación por tener a un hombre a su lado. Al final resulta que ya no actúa con desesperación y usa más la cabeza para tomar las decisiones correctas, pero sinceramente, pareciera que la autora se quedó sin ideas para continuar el libro y dejó paja regada por todos lados, junto con un final que deja much ...more

Could barely get thru it. I was hoping I might learn why I'm still single haha. All my ex's except 3 are unmarried or not in happy relationships so clearly I'm not the problem. I didn't think Amelia was the problem either. Ending could've been better.

Fun read but felt as if something was lacking.

I really adored this lovely tale of finding true love! Review to come :)
Classic British humor and writing. It was great. Set in Dublin and Amelia’s story is a classic tale of unrequited love and trying to figure out this dating world for 30 something’s. It had humor, shake your head embarrassingly moments, and hope that love is around the corner.

Amelia, a tv producer, is on a journey to get married within the year. She is over 35 so no time like the now. She joins a class that can guarantee just that promise. She has to go back into her ex-past and discover why tho

OMG, this book is so generic that I had read it before and didn't even realize it until Goodreads pointed that fact out to me, as I was getting ready to write this review. It didn't even feel familiar enough as I read it that I noticed. Wow.
