Goodness, I enjoyed this so much! Maybe even more than the first one. This one had me giggling and laughing out loud multiple times, which is very rare for me with a book. It also seemed to have more of a nostalgic feel, with the mother reminiscing as her children grow up, which didn't really happen in the first one. Some of the stories do go on just a little too long and become dull, but in general her comedic timing is incredible. I can't believe this is the same woman who wrote The Haunting of Hill House!

Tayler McCrery I've been meaning to read Life Among the Savages for ages! You've convinced me to pick that up soon, so that I can get to this one eventually. ;)

Yeah, Life Among the Savages was one of my favorite reads last year, but I enjoyed this one even more!


Tayler McCrery I flew through the audiobook of Life Among Savages today (since I had a mindless project at work, and the audiobook happened to be available from the library :), and it was so fun! My library had the ebook of Raising Demons available, so I started that this evening. I'm excited. :D
