My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
What are you gonna do over there without your job? Eat croissant?
~ Miranda Hobbes, Esq.
I’m sorry (not really actually), but unless it’s a cookbook, non-fiction is something I don’t like reading. However, I’m a HUUUGE fan of Sex and the City and couldn’t turn this one down.
Like Miranda, I will call you out on your bull shit cheer-me-up bagels as a disguise to talk boy problems, while I’m down and out. Yet, I am the eternal optimist like Charlotte, when it comes to finding true love. However, like Carrie, I’ve picked the wrong men (which I think we all have at one time or another.)
I had such a blast reading this one! To be honest, I don’t think my review will do it justice!
I particularly enjoyed the bit with a rundown of different assholes.
Whether you’re a type A or not, this fun and witty read gives you the 101 on how to bring a little Miranda into your life when it comes to work, love, sex and fashion.
I highly recommend it for lovers of Sex And The City.
When Sex and the City premiered, many were hesitant to identify as the Miranda of their social circle—after all, sarcasm, workaholism, and dubious fashion choices are rarely considered aspirational. However, in the two-plus decades since her television debut, our culture has finally caught up with this forward-thinking icon and all she represents. The truth is, Miranda Hobbes is the feminist hero that we deserve— we were all just too busy obsessing over Carrie’s corset tops to notice it at first.
WE SHOULD ALL BE MIRANDAS is a celebration of a certain redheaded lawyer and the legions of fans who relate to her pragmatic, no-bullshit approach to work, love, and sex. Written by two self-proclaimed Mirandas, this humorous manifesto distills Ms. Hobbes’ core principles into a strategic guide for navigating life’s inevitable ups and downs. In it, you’ll learn to:
✔Overcome your internalized Mirandaphobia
✔Cope with humiliating sexual encounters
✔Make Google Docs your bitch
✔Dump that Skipper that you’ve been dating
✔Embrace your bad hair days
…and so much more!
