Book Description

The second volume in the best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series!

Don't get us wrong, we love the men in our lives – we do (most of the time). It's just that sometimes we would like them to go away. Not forever or anything like that. Just for an hour … or a day … or a weekend. We want some time to ourselves to read a good book or take a walk or do anything other than try to make a dent in the never ending mound of dirty clothes that keeps piling up on the floor on his side of the bed. We just want to be alone. All alone. Is that too much to ask?

I Just Want to Be Alone is a collection of humorous essays from 37 of the most Super Cool Lady Writers you'll find on the web. Including: People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Baby Sideburns, A.K. Turner, My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, and Bad Parenting Moments.

Read hilarious essays like:

Open Letter To My Son (Or: Your Mother’s Top 10 List of Ways Not to Be a Douchebag Husband)

Exploding With Love, Literally

Romance is Overrated

Life With the Thin Guy

Dear Magnolia, Should I Marry This Man?

Customer Reviews

A little light reading to see just what married life can be like.
Kelly Maeser
I woke my husband with my violent shaking reading this book while trying not to literally laugh out loud and cry while he slept!
Ellen Kaelin
I loved the collection of voices from every walk of life and the perfect mix of humor and tenderness in the stories they shared.

In this follow up to a hugely successful first book, Jen and company take on the men in their lives. Once again, these truth-telling women give you a funny PG-13 peek behind closed doors. If you’re like me (nosy and with the attention span of a hummingbird) you’ll love this book because each of the essays is like a quick visit with your BFF. Stash a paperback wherever you might need a few minutes of respite from your own better half. Read one of these funny-because-its-true tales and you'll emerge refreshed and ready to help him with whatever crisis he totally could have resolved himself if he would just listen to 50% of what you say. But I digress. Put a backup copy on your smartphone for the carpool line, soccer practice, or wherever you need a delightful diversion to survive even one more minute. You’ll get by with a little help from these friends.

As if there was a chance I wouldn't enjoy this book. If you have had any dealings with dating, marital life, or commitment (even if that commitment is with your male beta fish, Gordon) with a man, then this book will make you laugh out loud. Jen has once again knocked it out of the park with her stellar group of lady bloggers, sharing hilarious tales of what life is really like when you love, or try to love, a man.

Guaranteed to make you laugh and have at least one story you see yourself and your husband in. It's so easy to relate to these very real women.

Format: Paperback
An absolutley hilarious collection of essays that remind us we're all in the same circus - just different tents.

An amazing group of writers pooled together to share stories about relationships. In every one (seriously - every. one.) I found myself laughing out loud (as in an actual audible guffaw, not the typical "lol" we see bandied abut so often). The point is, we can all relate.

Find a place to squirrel away to read. Actually - better yet, find a public place to read it since that will give you the opportunity to read your favorite passages out loud. (You know you do it.)

You may note that this book is Volume 2 - don't worry if you haven't read Volume 1 (I Just Want to Pee Alone) yet. Sit back with the multitude of tales about relationships and then go back to the future with the first volume that delves into the delights of parenthood.

I love a book that makes me wildly shake my head in agreement and fist pump the air! Yep! That was me as I read "I Just Want to Be Alone" from some of the most awesome and hilarious bloggers on the planet. You too will look like a nutjob (in tears) as you read through this comical collection of stories that reminds us all how much we want and need our "me" time. Husbands are great - it's true. But, my gawd, can they place us on the brink of insanity. Reading this made me realize that my life and relationship is as normal as the next girl's - that normal unfortunately includes suffocation by spooning and how evolution has left man (not woman) behind. Get the book. You want to... It's a sweet escape to that "me" place your sanity is dying to visit!

So yeah yeah yeah, I WAS in the first anthology (I Just Want To Pee Alone) and I do know many of these woman personally, but believe me when I tell you that I am not a BS-er and if I didn't like this book I would just totally skip this whole Amazon review process and keep mum about it.

But I like it!

Okay???

Many of my friends from the first one are back and as awesome as ever, but there are also many new contributors this time around which makes for a huge dash of freshness that is awesome.

Admittedly, I had not heard of many of the new contributors (yes, I am in a social media bubble and have zero idea what is going on outside of it), but they are now people that I will follow in a totally normal and non-stalkery way. I am super excited to have some new authors to read and compare myself to and cry at night about why I don't measure up.

WHATEVER.

Read it. Laugh at it. And tell your husband that he's not the only freak in the world.

He will appreciate that immensely .

I knew that this hysterical anthology would not disappoint. After reading and loving I Just Want To Pee Alone, a collection of essays from mothers who also happen to be hilarious and talented bloggers, hearing that there was a second collection of stories about the various ups and downs of marriage, was music to my ears. I happen to follow many of these bloggers on the web already and laugh daily at their antics and accounts of their life experiences. This montage of real world tales is from start to finish, perfection. Every married woman on the planet can relate and find herself in these stories. And every single woman on the planet, who plans to one day get married, will certainly love this humorous array of what they have to look forward to. What a delightful and fun read that I will enjoy gifting to my engaged friends.
