The Book of Snark is a fun, quick read. Set up like one of those smarmy inspirational quotational books full of fluff, 'Snark' is a refreshing change.
Mounts captures those little self realizations, observations and those snarky comments we all feel but rarely get to express in the moment.
It's a funny and refreshing read. Perfect to keep in your bag for those public commutes when you'd really like to snark at the frustrations of daily life.
I'm looking forward to more of these! I hope...

Some really great quotes will come out of this. It was snarky, it was a book, it will not be everyone's cup of tea but it worked for me. ...more

This collection of oneliners, snarky observations and random shower thoughts is a very quick read. Some of the thoughts are funnier than others, some convey quite serious ideas, some are a product of acute annoyance, some are old clichés. It is loosely organised according to topics, including work, public transport, chores, social media, relationships, writing, and other frustrations.

I could relate to many of these sentiments but I read this from cover to cover in one sitting and I think it pro

A book that I would carry to a dentist appointment or to read at the bus stop or in the security hold area while waiting for a flight. It has the abiiity to distract your from the rigours of waiting and keep you chuckling at how the world behaves.
It is a collection of thoughts that you might have surely thought but not penned hence it is more of an affirmation of the strange plastic world we live in and she has managed to put these thoughts forward with a great sense of humour.
It is a great boo

I appreciate wit or the lowest form of wit, snark. So a whole book of Snark, yes please!

As I read it, this was just a book of snarky musings, one-liners or zingers. Some of them were funny, but some of them needed context to understand where the musing came from. You can’t just have a book of punchlines without the set up of the joke.

I feel like this is written by a older woman who writes her musings in a notebook, then filled the entire notebook, then organized it by categories and went, huh...

Tension Mounts put together a wonderfully charming book that I felt validated many of my thoughts.

I read this while my toddler was sleeping right next to me, and I am so glad my outbursts of random laughter did not wake her up!

If you want to laugh and feel like you are sitting next to your wise but ornery Great Aunt Molly, this is the book for you!

This book has opened up my eyes to a whole new kind of book. They have so many books on snark. I am obsessed. I would love for this writer to be my workmate in any situation. This book is funny and at times as practical advice that some might think it’s easy to follow but either way it is very entertaining and I highly recommend it. I was given this book by book sirens and I am leaving this review totally voluntarily.

You know, the snarkiness made me laugh out loud partly because it's relatable and partly because I know I'll be on the receiving end of that sass. But it's not all humor and sass, though. There are quite some points that you could really ponder about.

Many thanks to BookSirens and Tension Mounts for providing this free ARC in exchange for an unbiased review.

Book of Snark is not your average book of encouragement. It is instead full of snarky mantras and one liners for a variety if topics, including work, relationships, and even writing. As a whole, I really wanted to like this book a lot more than I did. As someone who appreciates a fair amount of snark, I enjoyed the premise of this book and found myself chuckling at a handful of the topics. But after awhile, it started to lose a bit of its appeal. I think this book would work well as an alternati ...more

C.M.Mounts writes, travels, and cycles as much as a working schlub like her can manage. She leads the double life of IT professional by day and an aspiring author by night. A blogger by default, she also writes works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. She’s been told she is a funny gal with a big personality- to which her only response is, “Meh.”
