    5 rose’-colored stars to I See Life Through Rose-Colored Glasses! 🍷 🍷 🍷 🍷 🍷 (*I know this is not rose’, but it was as close as I could get! 😊)Short and sweet review of this one- I loved it! I know I have at least one book from this series languishing on my shelf, and when I read a review from my friend, Stephanie, I had to read this book asap. I started I See Life late last night and almost finished it in one sitting. From t...

    This was the perfect book to read sitting in my hammock over the beautiful 4th of July holiday - so much fun and no deep concentration required!Francesca Serritella’s alternating short stories complement her mother Lisa Scottoline’s as she infuses her individual style and contemporary perspective into life experiences. The storytelling from generational perspectives, unique observations and journaling over a broad scope of topics are quite cl...

    "We take real life and make it funny."--Lisa ScottolinePhiladelphia lawyer turned courtroom/thriller novelist Lisa Scottoline has also been writing "true stories and confessions." I thought it was about time I read one of her humor books, which she co-authors with her daughter Francesca Serritella. I picked up I See Life Through Rose'-Colored Glasses through NetGalley.My husband and I began reading Scottoline's novels for their Philadelphia local...

    I'm a big fan of Lisa Scottoline and have been for a long time. I look forward to the mother-daughter collaboration each year. I used to listen to them and, personally, I think they're funnier in that format. But, these books are a hoot whether reading or listening.This book was particularly interesting since Lisa brought up aging and all the various "issues" (and I use that word humorously) that getting older brings to our bodies and our minds. ...

    I was drawn to the cover of this book and thought for sure I would love it. I love anything by Lisa Scottoline and this book is made of short stories by her and her daughter. This book fell short of keeping me entertained. It just didn’t hold my interest. DNF at 20%. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this complimentary book. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Snake mating balls! Unusual holiday benefits of steroids! The cheap high of the Container Store’s false promises!We’ve all been there. Okay, maybe not...but we all agree that life is funny especially when someone else is fending off its slings and arrows. Just like life, I See Life through Rosé Colored Glasses has no easily discernible plot. It just kinda rolls over everything in its way. Most of the stories here are only a few pages long ma...

    I love reading these stories. They are such fun to read and they are about things that really happened to them. Some of them are laugh out loud funny. One was very sad about one of Lisa's dogs, I cried. I always enjoy these books, it's a nice change. Sometime I will have to try their audiobooks. Lisa and her daughter Francesca do the recordings themselves. I received this ARC through NetGalley.

    If you only know Lisa Scottoline from her Thrillers, then you are in for a treat when she joins her daughter in this humorous series of true life stories of a mother and daughter and the way they view life as two adult women in different stages of life.From Lisa we get the stuff a lot of us are dealing with. They make the every day hilarious and you can't help but laugh along as you are saying, " Oh my lord, I thought that was just me!" Well, it ...

    I had a hard time stopping laughing long enough to write this review! I LOVED this book. It is a great read for anyone at any age, but if you have a daughter or a mother (wink), you can relate to all of this on a number of levels. This is a series of humorous essays/columns from Lisa and Francesca, a mother and daughter team of authors who have a wonderful gift for words. They write a weekly newspaper column titled “Chick Wit”, and many of th...

    As always, Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca Serritella address some of the oddities and uncertainties of life with humor, sarcasm, wit, and intelligence. They speak of being pet owners and how obsessive we can be (yes, myself included!), of aging, gracefully or not so much so. They address dating - or not, and so many other topics. Sometimes the sharp edged humor hides real truths that really hit close to home. Each year I look forward ...

    This collection of story stories was a little hard to get into as I’m not usually a short story reader, but I am a big fan of the author Lisa Scottoline and was excited to read I See Life Through Rose-Colored Glasses. The book, at times, was relatable, humorous—laugh-out-loud funny, and a few times brought tears to my eyes. I could relate to many of the true life stories as my daughter and I are very close—best friends—as with Lisa and Fr...

    Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's press for an early copy of this book for review!Another fun and exciting collection of stories from Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella. It was a quirky set of stories and I learned in this book that "quirky means adorable."I waited a few days to start this one because I knew once I started I would want to continue to read just one more and I would get nothing else done. And that was true. I read the e...

In these collaborations they share about the hilariousness that is their everyday life. We get both hilarious perspectives of life from the ‘younger generation’ and the ‘older generation’.

    Another LOL read for this mother/daughter duo. They are a winning combination in The Inquirer (Philadelphia) and these are short stories are based on their experiences. This is a great escape is you are reading a thriller that has you stressed or biting your nails or on a beach vacation. Easy to read a story or 4, then pick up a glass of Rosé! My kids and hubby stopped asking what was so funny for fear I’d read them another story.Thanks to Net...

    Cute, light, relatable essays written from two different perspectives of mother and daughter. Reading a book in the series is like meeting up with relatives or friends and catching up with a few laughs along the way.

    Lisa Scottoline and her adult daughter Francesca Serritella reveal their year of mother-daughter, real life moments in this latest in their series and it is all good clean fun with a touch of sadness as the situation warrants.This is a book to savor, though you want to rush through to see what they have come up with next. From make-up to dogs, colonoscopy kits to carb consumption, each 'tale' brings a smile or a tear. I love the reminiscing of Ph...

    For the past few years, I have read a book by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella in the beginning of summer. It’s a great way to kick off the season, and I really look forward each new copy. This year’s edition is one of my favorites so far.Usually I can relate to Lisa’s comments the best. I love her way of turning even the most ordinary of circumstances into something to be laughed at, and I often find myself nodding along in solidar...

    Can I just say how much I love Lisa Scottoline?? She is not only a wonderful author but one of the funniest, sweetest women around...her personality just shines through in the essays she writes with her equally funny and fantastic daughter Francesca Serritella! I really do adore this mother-daughter duo, and their series of books about their real-life is just the best! They have such a wonderful relationship, and it makes reading their essays ju...

    Every summer, I look forward to the newest episode of the Lisa and Francesca family saga. Each year, as this mother-daughter writing team releases their Chick Wit column in book form, I cannot wait to sit down with them to share in their laughter and to realize, no matter whom you are, the good and the bad in life finds us all. In the past, I would listen to their most recent book while driving my daughter back to college or when I wandered on a ...

    Seeing life through the lens of this mother-daughter team is hilarious, touching, and real. This collection of stories is totally relatable, they invite us into their imperfect lives and allow us to join in the comedic side of life.No subject is off limits, from a do it yourself colonoscopy, to peeling a hard-boiled egg and giving up a pool chair to a pool bully.Lisa points out the incongruities of growing older and the way in which we cope with ...

    If I was a betting kind of person, I would have thrown my money down and stated yes I have read every book Lisa Scottoline has written. I guess it is a good thing that no one offered me that betting opportunity since I would have been wrong. I had no idea that Lisa and her daughter, Francesca have written a series of books together, so I learned something new today(and kept my cash).Some of the essays were laugh out loud funny, some sad, but most...

    See this review on 1776books.net...http://1776books.blogspot.com/2018/04...Over the years, I've had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Scottoline a few times, and believe me when I tell you that she is one of the nicest people you will ever come across in your life. She greets her fans not with handshakes but with hugs, and the word that comes most to mind when I think of her is "genuine."Her daughter, Francesca Serritella, is exactly the same way. Lis...

    For the last few summers, one of my most looked forward to reads is the newest humorous essay collection by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella. So I couldn't wait to dive into this latest book. What I love about these essays is that you feel like you are chatting with a good friend and laughing together about life. We do all have so much in common that it is refreshing to celebrate that and know someone else relates. Their stories find the ...
