Editorial Reviews

Review

"What I thought before reading a word of this book: Oh, great. Mom poetry. I couldn't have been more wrong. Yes, it's poetry. Yes, it's for moms. But it's also wicked, and wickedly accurate. It's charming, but shocking. It's cold, but warm. It's uplifting, but heartbreaking. It's Shel Silverstein, but for moms only. It's just what you need after a horrible meeting, when the water heater goes, or when you feel invisible or unappreciated or misunderstood. It's a battle cry. It's Mom poetry!" - Peyton Price, author of the Suburban Haiku series

Something ALWAYS smells like pee in my life, and so I know. Blythe Jewell knows, too, and swears about it like a pro. You'll laugh in recognition and you'll want Blythe for a best friend. Just don't cut her off on the freeway and you'll be fine. Awesome fun.

A great bunch of funny poems to read whenever you need a laugh. When you are on your lunch break, at home, or on the toilet.

Something Smells Like Pee by Blythe E. Jewell is a collection of hilariously funny and relatable poems about life. Seriously, I think she came over to my house and observed my life for a week. I have my own stalker! Who knew? I have searched the house for the smell of pee before, she has described my husband exactly, we must have been in the same row of traffic, and I want to pop off the head of the perfect perky mom too!

If you'd like to understand what I am talking about, you must read her collection of poems. I will warn you, they are not without the occasional (ok frequent) cuss word but I'm not sure you could remove them without taking something away from her poems. Haven't you ever just wanted to throw a $20 bill into the cuss word jar and have at it? Maybe this collection of poems is her way of doing just that.

To Blythe Jewell, I say thanks for speaking my mind. For the rest of you, I say pick up a copy of this satisfying expression of frustrations for yourself. You will have a good laugh.

This book was provided to me by the author through a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for my honest review.

there was a lot of cussing and man-bashing. some is cute, after awhile though it seemed as if she co-host them simply because they rhyme.

I have found my twin. "They" (whoever the hell 'they' are) say that everyone has one. Blythe is mine. Her warped sense of humor and dented perspective made me feel right at home. This little collection is now my special friend. Anytime I feel misunderstood I'll know Blythe would understand. On the days when too many tragic news stories have me curled up in a ball on the floor, I'll scrape myself up, reach for my Kindle and read this book. During an average day when observing life, I'll think about her poems. I love, love, love how she thinks and expresses herself. There were many, many times I laughed so hard I gave myself a headache. Wonderful little treasure. Thank you for sharing yourself with us, Blythe.

I love this book. The title is what got me. I started reading some of the poems while sitting on the couch next to my husband; and I could not stop laughing. Then I started reading some of the poems out loud to my husband; and then we both could not stop laughing. The author really tells it how it is. I felt like she had been to my house and seen how things are in my house. The author is willing to write in print all of the things I think every day but am unwilling to say, or write. I love it!

This book had me laughing at nearly every page turn! There were some poems that were linked to current day "celebrities" (Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, etc) that said EXACTLY what most of us truly think! While I'm not a parent, there were other poems that I could completely relate to that are REAL and what parents deal with for their children. I loved the sarcasm and reality the author brought to each work! If you need a good laugh every now and then, read a few pages!

This collection of humorous, sassy poems was an unexpected delight! ...Blythe Jewell takes a look at our daily challenges and says exactly what she feels in a way that we can all relate...She is funny and smart, but her "cuss" jar is certainly full by now! She shares her love for her family and the joy of raising a messy little boy ....I highly recommend this cute book of witty poems!
