Things I Want to Punch in the Face Comment

  1. For starters, I received this book as a First Reads giveaway.Wow, let s just say that had I not received this book for free, I would have been seriously disappointed, and wanted my money back Priced at 11.95, for something that took me an hour to read, because it starts on page 13 and is only 125 pages long, this book is overpriced at just over 0.09 a page As it turns out, the ebook versions are only a few dollars cheaper, which is even of a ripoff My recommendation is don t waste your money an [...]


  2. True confessions I m the publisher So of course I love this book I was a fan of Jennifer Worick s blog first, and it made me laugh so consistently that I had to find her and publish a book It s smart and opinionated and colorful and funny, and it s a great gift for just 12 I don t agree with every Punch I happen to like New Yorker cartoons, for instance but I love that she calls such a diverse array of annoyances on the carpet Great therapy.


  3. I have enjoyed Jennifer Worick s site of the same name for years, now She s taken the art of the pet peeve to a cosmic level Now, there s a portable collection of Worick s rants Encompassing a variety of peeves which can only be considered epic in their scope, from Molly Ringwald s Prom Dress in Pretty In Pink , to, Prolific Dead People , to, Naked Pregnancy Portraits , this companionable tome will not only remind you of how detestable things like the IKEA Habitrail , or, Mercury In Retrograde a [...]


  4. Too bad Jennifer Worick doesn t want to punch the over use of puns in the face Also, it turns out that I don t really like reading books about what other people hate I don t share the author s bitterness over most of the things in the book and she came off sounding like an unpleasant, self absorbed person.


  5. When this book first came out someone recommended it to me and I wish I could remember who that was so I could go punch him her in the face I like a good rant with comedic value but this was just one bitchy whine after another over piddly little BS things If I wanted that I d go visit relatives.


  6. I like my anger to be served in a certain way Bitter, cynical, sarcastic anger Not mean, whiny, complaining anger That s all this was Blegk.


  7. This review was originally posted on One Curvy BloggerA couple of weeks ago, I was having a bad day I can t remember why but probably because of something insignificant that irritated me until I was steaming yeah, I can be a bitch sometimes I was about to start doing the dishes and decided I needed an audiobook to keep me company I browsed through my public library s online audiobooks and came across Things I Want to Punch in the Face It sounded perfect for my mood I downloaded it and ten minute [...]


  8. first bitch stole my ideaat chaps my hide second now I know there is an audience for rants and maybe I ll start my own blog and write my own book and make hundreds of hundreds of dollars and some cents.I want to punch her in the face for writing MY book dammit.


  9. While reading Jennifer Worick s Things I Want to Punch in the Face , I made the mistake of taking a drink of coffee While in mid slurp, I snorted and ended up with a most of my morning joe on my shirt Funny, clever, cranky Except now I want to punch my book in the face


  10. Things I want to punch in the face publishers who think Jennifer Worick would make a good author I wanted to like this book but honestly it was aggressively awful.


  11. First things first I received this book as a First Read Good, that s out of the way That being said, I was pretty freaking excited when this lil gem appeared in my mailbox There are multiple people places things I would like to punch in the face, so I figured that Jennifer and I would connect on that very disgruntled female level Connect we did Many of the things that Jennifer wants to punch in the face are also things that I also believe deserve a good beating like business speak.who the hell l [...]


  12. Good for a few giggles in agreement made up business words, duck face selfies, parking space hogs grrrr tantards is definitely a new entry to my vocabulary people wearing full make up jewellery on the beach should also be applied to those in the gym.Although biggest chuckle was at an American getting annoyed at people who mispronounce words ermuminium, basil, oregano.lol


  13. DNF The ebook really doesn t display well for Nook HD, with the graphical elements not really aligning properly and often completely messing up the format and layout, with the text scrunched into 1 4 of the page, odd hyphen breaks inappropriately placed in words, and the footers often splitting the text into three pages.


  14. I m already a fan of the blog and am loving the number of fists rating system for how many punches in the face any one thing deserves Ms Worick s irreverent sense of humor makes me belly laugh As an added bonus you get to learn fun facts while you re chuckling Do yourself a favor and read it


  15. Worst book I listened to the audio book and it was excruciating Hours of constant griping Not funny Don t waste your time.



  16. Upsides quick good for a laugh or two.Downsides this book started off on the wrong foot with me by insulting the song Ironic This is an all time favorite of mine the author clearly misses the face that the examples of Irony in the song are not actually irony which in itself makes the song ironic Things didn t improve much after that This woman comes off as insecure paranoid The book often reads like I don t like _____ because people who enjoy it are snobby judging me stuck up you get the point A [...]


  17. Wanted something light funny but was disappointed Too much Just too much Anger, pettiness, profanity vulgarity, etc Would ve stopped listening to the audiobook but it was short enough that I just endured Some things were occasionally funny, but often spoiled by the repetitiveness of her punchlines no pun intended Don t bother.


  18. Things I Want to Punch in the Face This book It was cute for the first 50 pages or so, but the language and content became quite tedious afterwards P.S Mr Darcy is practically perfect in every way.





  19. I actually liked this one a lot than I thought I would and I think it s because I m a big fan of those books like The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha This book is the opposite of that book It s basically the things that piss you off or, in this case, the things that piss Jennifer Worick off.I ll admit that there were some things in her list that I am and I found myself laughing in agreement as to why she could kick that certain trait in the balls frankly, with a book like this, if you re not p [...]



  20. I didn t technically read this, I listened to the audio book on a long road trip This is LAUGH OUT LOUD funny shit.I think Jennifer and I would instantly be friends and I d be curious to know which one of us would drop the F bomb first.Jennifer s rants include things that bug the crap out of us but we just don t say or do anything about it If only we could they would likely sound exactly like how she describes it.Here are some of my favorite rants and some new wordisms I m going to have to use.L [...]


  21. Unlike Meghan Rowland s hilarious It Seemed Like a Good Idea this book was a huge disappointment.It was very obvious it was blog based Being blog based is not by itself a bad thing, but being obvious about it most certainly is.Worick presents a long, alphabetized list of things she loathes so much she wants to punch them, from the orange crud that Cheetos leave on your fingers and clothes to chai to so called comfort shoes to stupid celebrity baby names Fair enough Though I happen to have a seri [...]


  22. I won this book in a raffle at a work party It s not a novel It s simply a list of 102 things that piss this chick off in one way or another She has a five fist rating for each thing that she describes like this One fist is annoying, like a mild rash Two is aggravating, like a black eye Three is disgusting, like an open sore Four is toxic, like acid reflux or IBS Five is permanently damaged, like my patience.I was amused before I even started reading what bugged her.Obviously, not every joke in [...]


  23. I really wanted to love this I was just coming off of a couple super depressing books, and I needed something light and fun.I got this as an audiobook to listen to in the car, and I was decidedly underwhelmed.There were a few categories that were really great Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, and Mr Darcy stood out for me And my hands down favorite was Molly Ringwald s Prom Dress in Pretty in Pink.But someally You want to punch Chai Tea in the face And Steampunk Tennis bracelets How can th [...]


  24. I decided to get the audiobook version and that was a mistake Although the author makes some great points, this was unbearable for me Some books are better on print And if I ever gave this book another chance that s the way I would have to go By the quick pace through topics I can tell this is the type of book you don t really READ read Its like something you flip through a page a day like those calendars that have cartoons or jokes on each little calendar day You read one have a laugh or a thin [...]


  25. As quirky and funny as the title would have you believe, there were also couple of pleasant surprises as well I felt that if the things lived up to the title, this would be a groovy little 3 star book I would enjoy it, maybe have a laugh, then move on But, waitThere s First, with each annoyance, there is a quick, simple fact What Laughing AND learning Good times.Next, the title becomes a mind set, a mantra, if you will When my 8 year old son saw this book, he cracked up at the title From that m [...]
