Short and sweet review of this one- I loved it!

I started I See Life late last night and almost finished it in one sitting. From the first story I was laughing out loud. It is that funny.

Lisa Scottoline is a well-known author, and she has joined efforts with her daughter, Francesca Serritella, to write a series of essays with a book published each summer, just in time to take on vacation. Let me tell you, it has been the perfect vacation read.

I am close with my mom, and I talk to her every day. Lisa and Francesca have the same tight relationship. My mom and I have our own silly banter, and so do Lisa and Francesca. They consider their pets their family; we do, too! All of that to say, I found the writing completely relatable. Besides the funny anecdotes, there are also heart-tugging stories.

I am more of a novel reader. I do not read many short stories, and I have not been drawn to collections of essays, but this book is in a league of its own. I See Life Through Rose-Colored Glasses is amusing, entertaining, heartwarming, and completely uplifting.

Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for the ARC. I See Life Through Rose’-Colored Glasses is available now.
