#68: On My Knees - Periel Aschenbrand

On My Knees is Periel Aschenbrand’s seriously funny follow-up to her debut memoir The Only Bush I Trust Is My Own.
At the beginning of On My Knees, we find Periel chain-smoking her days away on a plastic-covered couch, watching reruns of Law & Order while she squats in her deceased grandmother’s apartment and adjusts to being alone for the first time in a decade. So begins a Dante-esque journey through the many rings of single-girl hell that includes crazy one-night stands; an unhealthy attachment to a dental hygienist; a run-in with Philip Roth; and, in the end, a trip to Israel and an encounter with a man who just might be the one.
Hysterical and heartfelt, On My Knees traces Periel’s riotous attempt to rebuild her life, her relationships, and her trademark confidence.

Review:
One of the best memoirs I have ever read!
Periel is smart, funny, fashionable and to-the-point. I laughed so many times and then had to relay to the hubby what I read so he could laugh too. And believe me when I tell you, we did.  She is such a riot!
This story centered around her dating life, or sometimes lack thereof. I know so many women who will be able to relate to her stories. Especially the city chicks. Life, especially dating life, moves at a different pace. She is pretty honest in her account of being a city girl.
Gotta say, the cover is hot! So is the story!
Now I gotta get a copy of her other book.


5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
