I am in love. Yes, I have a total girl crush on Tara Sivec. Move over Christian Grey, I'm switching teams. I am ready to move near Tara and stalk her so I can be her best friend (and maybe lick her face a little. I love her that much). Or maybe it's the characters she wrote I want to hang with. Or are they one in the same?
Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec is hands down my new favorite book. I laughed so much during this book scary things were happening to my body. Seriously. I was eating chips (damn my husband for leaving those Bugles out!) and one SHOT out my nose. At the same time, my tampon dislodged itself (thank God that didn't shoot all the way out too!) I had a little cough while reading this, so every time I laughed, I would break into a coughing fit. My family had 911 on speed dial. My husband has been looking at me like I grew two heads and mumbling "uh oh, she's at it again" every time I picked up the book to read more. I kept having to put this book down because I didn't want it to end, and my face, stomach and chest muscles started hurting.
So here is the plot. The book opens with Claire talking about how much she had no desire for rugrats. (I get this, I was married 7 years before I went off the pill.) Claire is a trash talking, diarrhea of the mouth, ADD riddled woman that you can't help but relate to and fall in love with. But at 20 years old, she was desperate to give up her v-card. She met this amazing, swoony guy at a frat party.

I liked the opening chapters and bits and pieces of the rest of the book as well. The thing is, the characters act and talk like they're closer to 15 than 25 and have that young type of sex-related humor which, to me, gets boring after a while. Similarly, a lot of the book is chick-lit/Bridget Jones type humor where the protagonist is always doing things to embarrass herself (in this book often related to sex) which other people hear or see and she is mortified. For me, that kind of humor gets tiring as well. Better is the kid and the mommy humor: "I will not sell my child to gypsies. I will not sell my child to gypsies." Much of the opening chapters are this latter type of humor and why I ordered the book after reading the sample.
The love story is rather silly, more like something one would find in a young adult novel (maybe even younger than that given the rather mature level of some young adult novels) but with sexual thoughts and some sexual action thrown in. I think you have to be younger than I am to enjoy this novel--but then again, given the great reviews, maybe not. But if you have limited tolerance for juvenile sex and chick lit type humor, you might want to consider giving this one a pass.
TEXT TO SPEECH PROBLEM. The text to speech software did not recognize either periods or question marks in this book file so the book read like a run-on sentence, making it difficult to understand at times. The software recognize and pause for commas.
"O"--The big "O" as in OH...MY...GOD!
"vag"--to replace the anatomically correct phrasing for lady bits!
"latex protection device"--this one's obvious; think "trojan"
"darn"--this one's pretty obvious, but think beaver structure (no not that kind)
"chuck"--come on!! Think of another word that rhymes with chuck
"hi-men"--misspelled on purpose; it's EXACTLY what it sounds like
"twot" was also misspelled on purpose, but it is what it is!
The unfiltered hilarity of this book made me laugh and "o" at the same time. Can you laugh yourself into an "o"?? Never in my life have I been so darn proud to have a vag! I normally don't like vag; it can be very territorial. When vags...vagies...vagi? When vagi get around each other, the (the vag word for kitten) claws come out and everything becomes one big competition. It's like the chucking whoo-ha olympics; every twot for themselves. But deep down inside we're all just looking for someone to high-five our clean poonani with.
So why bring up age old twot wars? Because Seduction & Snacks punches every single nauseating female stereotype in the face. It portrays the type of unfiltered, chuck the world, this is me so deal with it type of woman that I want to be. A woman that makes me want to jump up and yell, "OOH! OOH! I HAVE A VAG TOO."
I'm aware of my overuse of the word vag, but I (word that rhymes with punt) help it. S&S was like the holy grail of vag one-liners. Tara Sivec is the vag whisperer. She is the chucking Dali-Lama of feminine humor!Read more ›
