In this adorably illustrated book, Marx and Chast deliver their signature sassy advice in style This round, they focus on helping couples who are in for the long haul Queen size beds, king size blanketsOverall, I liked this one even better than the first I feel like the duo has really has hit their stride Every bit of advice they gave really made me smile Force yourself to say I love you It makes the other person feel guilty and that always works to your advantage.As a newly married woman myself, there are quite a few things I identified with and truly made me enjoy this book So many of those little moments to relate to I do wish there was a bit of an intro or outtro I really enjoyed the short one we got and was hoping for a bit of a narrative from the author s lives I absolutely loved the couples that were in the illustrations Roz has a way of portraying that deadpan look that so often comes with unwashed dishes or minor frustrations It really brought a new dimension to the humor Also a huge shout out to Roz Chast in general for the way the illustrations were done I absolutely loved the variety in couples There were gay, straight, lesbian, biracial, etc couples and it really made me happy to see the inclusive touch All in all this was a fun, short book In all honesty, my biggest complaint is that it s ONLY 160 pages I wanted So much A huge thank you to the author and publisher for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest reviewYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads

    100% Hilarious, as well as being 100% Terrific Marriage Relationship Advice My husband wholeheartedly agrees with the following If you keep buying things from ten times a day even though there s no room in the house, you must buy a storage unit And live in it For me, I love this quote Do not walk ten feet in front of me unless you are checking for land mines However, the advice that rings most true to anyone in a long term relationship is the following When you do something wrong and there s no fixing it, apologize twenty times a day for being such a dick and soon I will become so sick and tired of hearing you babble, you will be forgiven This book is the perfect gift for friends and loved ones for Valentine s Day and should be given to every couple upon the occasion of moving in together I know it is intended to be humorous, and it very much is, but it also contains situations that anyone who is in a long term relationship will recognize and perhaps upon reading this, they will laugh off the irritation rather than let it escalate into an argument The illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to each humorous quote Readers of the New Yorker magazine will most definitely recognize the style Another thing I am very pleased with is the fact that not all illustrations portray couples as only Cisgender There are illustrations that depict all sexes I believe this is important.I rate this book as 4 OUT OF 5 STARS Thank you to Celadon Books for providing me with a free copy of this book Receipt of this book for no cost has in no way influenced my review Go to to see a preview of the illustrations from this book Follow me on Instagram

    I m not sure that I m capable of giving a Marx Chast book less than 5 stars Their mixture of truth and humor never ceases to amuse me I went to Philly Free Library last spring to see this bigger than life duo They were full of stories and fun and even played ukeleles just because they could This new little gem of a book does not disappoint The illustrations are worth look backs as Chast sneaks in some details you don t always pick up on first look They hit on universal truths that made me laugh out loud Here s one bit of advice I m going to try Once a week, throw out something of your partner s It will not be missed Or noticed I ll let you know how it goes Here s one about toasters and a myriad of other things Whoever cares the most that there are crumbs in the toaster gets the de crumbing job Long live the partnership between Marx and Chast ReadYouCanOnlyYell CeladonReads

    Many thanks to the fine folks at Celadon Books, for sending me a copy of this book to review YouCanOnlyYellThis is a sequel of sorts to Why Don t You Write My Eulogy Now So I Can Correct It by the same creative team I m glad that they seem to be doing so well with these I ve long been a fan of Roz Chast s cartooning, and I m starting to appreciate Patricia Marx s writing as well They do good funny together As with its predecessor, this book consists of single page drawings with captions, with a design on the facing page It looks gorgeous, but it does make the book feel padded, twice as long as it needs to be To be fair, this is really the sort of book you buy as a gift for someone I mean, as much as I love Chast and Marx, and as much as I enjoyed their first book together, I still think I d balk at paying 20 US for something with barely enough text to qualify as an email But I can be pretty cheap Your mileage may vary And the fact that I do appreciate having it supports my gift theory Buy it for someone you love, someone you know will appreciate it So, again, thank you, Celadon, for this very thoughtful memento of our journey together I shall treasure it always.
