Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Goldfarb's] winning ability to share her tales of bad judgment without a filter makes it easy to root for her."—Publishers Weekly

"The book is both fun and ultimately relatable."—Jason Oberholtzer, Forbes

"The voice of a generation... Chatty, funny and timely, her memoir is sure to amuse and touch an audience beyond her regular blog readers."—Shelf Awareness

"This book is hilarious. Anna Goldfarb is a female Michael Ian Black."—Three Library Cards

About the Author

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!

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.

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.

Any woman born in the late seventies or eighties can fully relate to Anna Goldfarb's hilarious antics in her debut novel. This book is a testament to the comical trials and tribulations of dating in the digital age. If you like this book, I also highly recommend her blog, Smitten Kitten, equally entertaining. I expect big things from this writer and am looking forward to her next book!

Anna Goldfarb says what she has to say in just under 300 pages.

After finishing the second half one early morning, I'd been taken on a Fellini-style journey as Anna experiences some embarrassing but realistic and well-intentioned dates while discovering John Coltrane and throwing around intertextuality like a cocaine hopped Woody Allen.

If nothing else, this serves as a guide on how to enjoy being you while learning to polish your rougher edges so you can have success with the ladies. As Molly Meldrum would say, do yourself a favour and buy this book now!

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.

I wish I kept a cringe count while reading this book! Anna's ever-funny, ever-awkward dating escapades are just as awesomely hilarious in her book as they are on her website, Shmitten Kitten. Anyone who has ever had a bad date will feel right at home reading this book. My favorite aspect of Anna's writing will always be the way she seamlessly injects random pop culture references as metaphors of her dating life and makes every story that much funnier. 'Clearly, I Didn't Think This Through' is a light, fun read perfect for anyone who could use a laugh (and doesn't mind a couple cringes too).

I've read the author's blog, Shmitten Kitten, for a while now and the book was full of the same deliciously catty yet self-deprecating humor I love from the website. This isn't high literature, but if you're looking for some highly enjoyable fluff to entertain you, this is it.
