I truly enjoyed this book. I tried to forget the person that I turned into when I was planning my wedding, but this book brought it all back. I truly laughed out loud at some parts! jorie Green Mark has an easy writing style that makes you want to keep reading. I devoured this book in a weekend and I enjoed every bit of it.
I hope that Jorie Green Mark writes another book about the trials and tribulations of motherhood. I will be first in line!

Format: Paperback
Bride in Overdrive is a diary of author Jorie Green Mark's Path toward Marriage. The reader gets to learn her inner-most thoughts and share her encounters with pre-marital brattiness. Her anticipation for the worst case scenario is combined with comedic overtones. It is not just herself trying to plan a marvelous wedding. Her story includes her best friends and extended family members and also an extraordinarily wonderful future mother and father- in- law. All contribute to fulfill her most lovely wedding day. The author does seem to possess a conceitedness about getting her own way - which at times she unabashedly admits.

What a great book to make one realize the craziness that occurs with getting so involved with wedding details. I laughed and empathized with the author about many of her experiences. This book is a must for any female who is thinking about ever getting married or who just wants to laugh at the idea. The poor grooms-to-be might even get a kick out of knowing that their bride is not the only one measuring candy boxes to be sure the favors will fit!

I got this book in the mail and read the first chapter immediately!! I could not put it down!! Easy read and so captivating! It's so funny. Many parts made me laugh out loud and even some parts made me cry! Reading this book totally brings back a flood of memories being a bride-to-be. Very enjoyable book that I will recommend to all of my friends!! I can't wait to read more from Jorie!

Jorie is a wonderful writer -- witty, honest and very real. I was reading in bed the other night, and laughing so hard that tears were practically rolling down my face -- my husband looked at me like I was nuts! This book is hysterical, and I think it is a must-read for everyone even contemplating engagement and marriage.
Hopefully, Jorie will be entertaining us with "Mom in Overdrive" in a few years!

A once avid book reader, I haven't read a book since i got married and moved in with my husband. I am almost done with this one already and love it so far. The writing style is easy to read. Its very funny and brings back all those memories.
I must admit to peaking ahead to the last page and my first thought was "I hope she writes about her pregnancy and motherhood too" That can be just as much an adventure.
Go, Jorie!

Funny account of pre-wedding bride concerns....I shared it with a co-worker who is getting married in a few weeks, just so she knows she's not the only one who has been to bridal insanity and back! We all gotta learn not to sweat the small stuff like napkins and underwear! I can't wait to read Jorie's next book...on motherhood!??
