Anna Goldfarb was born in upstate New York, raised in Chicago, schooled in New York City, and has settled in Philadelphia. She studied sociology as an undergraduate at Barnard College and holds a master's degree in journalism from Temple University. She is currently a full-time writer.

Anna has been called Philadelphia's "most popular dating blogger" by Philadelphia Weekly. Her blog Shmitten Kitten is a cult phenomenon. She likes thinking, eating tacos, holding hands, and pondering whether she could eat a taco while still holding hands. Yes, she still lives with her parents, but she will lie and say she lives in South Philly if you happen to be a hot guy.

As a longtime reader of Goldfarb's Shmitten Kitten (and sister blog, Shlooby Kitten <3), I was beyond stoked to hear she was writing a book. As much as I enjoyed the blogs, I knew the book would be awesome, and it did not disappoint. I can honestly say this is one of the funniest books I've ever read. Fans of the blog will love this, as will those who just love reading about epically unfortunate dating mishaps, which are written in a hilariously detailed (and strangely relatable) way. I laughed until I cried or couldn't breathe. It was a nonstop chucklefest.

Readers of Shmitten and Shlooby Kitten will feel like they're reading a book written by someone they know personally, because Goldfarb holds nothing back in her blog, and that translates well into the book. I've recommended it to everyone I know, and I think I've done a good job of stalking the author on every social network to tell her how much I LOVE THIS BOOK (hey, it's me again). I only hope there will be a sequel!

This has got to be the funniest book I have ever read...and I read a lot....plus I'm 71 years old. This is a laugh out loud book. I heard about it thru the Chicago Tribune (a book review) and they were right. If you want a "lift" this is it.

While reading I was either nodding in agreement, cringing with embarrassment for her or laughing out loud. Some parts reminded me of situations I've been in! Like dating a nerd, the dreaded lunch date and being a bit of a misfit. Other parts felt like the words were taken right from my head. Here's one example, "That's the thing about wearing tight jeans; it makes wearing anything with an elastic waistband feel like a hug from an angel." Anna, you get me.

I just finished Anna's book. In short. Awesome sauce.
I loved it all.
Her blog is one of the few web sites that has lasted the test of time. Other than absolutepunk.net or facebook, Its at the top of the list visited for the longest.
But back to this book - all I want to say is 'THANK YOU!" to her. Anna gives guys like me hope. Guys who aren't so tall (5'6) or who don't necessarily march to the beat of a normal drum. She give guys like me confidence. she sings our praises while other girls look over us to those less interesting and/or straight up taller. And does all of it in a hillarious well written way.
This book make me pine for the city of Philly, which I can only imagine over flows with girls like Anna.
Read it.

I guess I hoped for smarter humor and better insight. I got partway through, found the narrative grating, and decided life was to short to read an annoying book that made me cringe more than it made me laugh.

I'd be able to buy a candy bar and Anna Goldfarb's boyfriend at least 10 times over.

In all honesty this book is hilarious and written just like Anna's blog, which is why I enjoyed it so much. If you're a fan of Shmitten Kitten, don't even hesitate because this book is that blog in long format. If you're not a fan of the blog, you should probably just go back to watching Bill Cosby standup or whatever boring things you do instead.

Format: Paperback
Have you ever had a friend that for whatever reason (chemistry, dumb luck, too many drinks, bravery, and so on) seems to live such an absurd, sitcom level life that they never cease to confound yet amaze you? Well Anna Goldfarb is THAT person and she captures her unbelievable, often surreal dating experiences with home run humor and self awareness. Sarcastic as she is tall,the single girl adventures of Anna are ones I am glad didn't happen to me but make for one hell of a funny read. I have had nightmares about some of things Goldfarb describes (involving pets and feminine hygiene products for instance) but somehow when she puts them in chapter form, they become pure comedy.

So I bought this book at 1/2 price, I suppose it was mildly amusing, but my suggestion would be to borrow from the library if inclined. In fact it's been a few days and I don't remember much about it except that she has a thing for short guys and lives with parents. The buck stopped with me and it's been recycled.
