(63)Ali in Wonderland by Ali Wentworth

 Ali in Wonderland
by Ali Wentworth

Publication Date: February 7, 2012
Pages: 272

Okay - time for another one of my confessions.  I LOVE Good Morning America.  It is a vital part of my morning routine and I feel a bit lost if I don't get to watch it in the morning.  I love the chemistry that they all seem to have.  From Robin's peaceful wisdom to Josh & Sam's schoolboy antics, to George's "button down" personality.  I just love them.

So having said that when I first found out that "button down" George is married to the comedienne, Ali Wentworth, I was a bit shocked.  They just seem so different from each other.   So when I saw Ali promoting her book, I wanted to run right out and give it a read.  And I am not going to lie.  I just wanted to see what kind of dirt she was going to dish on George.

Instead of getting a lot of dirt about George, we get a lot of dirt on Ali.  Really quite funny dirt.  From her young days at boarding school, crazy roommate included, to her days living in Los Angeles and her ragtag group of roommates and everything in between. We get to hear about her first summer job, her mother's obsession with the Four Seasons, Ali's battle with depression and so much more.  Her stories are funny and insightful and brutally honest.  Everything a girl like me looks when reading a memoir.

Bottom line. While you might get as much dirt on George as you would like, he does pop up enough times throughout the book to satisfy my voyeuristic needs. If you are looking for a lighthearted read that is guaranteed to make you laugh pick it up and get started!

This is one I've wondered about! Good review.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
