The Book of Awful

1 star1 star1 star1 star0.5 star
Wouldn't it be nice if we all held hands and pooped rainbows? Sure, but until that moment what's the REAL way for people to get happy? Avoiding catastrophe. This parody of the bestselling "The Book of Awesome" takes readers on a journey of reluctant self-discovery, to help them realize how much worse life could really be. It's feeling grateful for what isn't, in a very awkward way. More

About Romi Moondi

I am Canadian, and here are some strange personal facts:

-I wore denim-top-to-bottom in high school (there is a direct inverse relationship between how much denim I wore and how few tongues were launched down my throat at school dances...or anywhere in high school at all).

-I'm continually baffled by that Malaysian baby whose father let him smoke two packs of cigarettes a day. That baby had so many fat rolls, and I thought cigarettes were supposed to be slimming.

-I always hated those insufferable couples who would cuddle and make out on the subway...until I became half of one. But now I'm back to being none of one so I hate them again.

One thing I love is writing. I wrote the parody "The Book of Awful" because the original made me angry, I wrote "NOT Love Poems for Real Life" because I needed to get things out of my system before I finished "Year of the Chick," and I wrote "Year of the Chick" because the realities of being an Indian girl who's living in a "westernized world" simply needed a book like that. And also because of Internet romance; it's an actual thing these days.

"Year of the Chick" is book one in a trilogy, and book two currently exists in the form of a screenplay. This screenplay made it to the semi-finals or better in five different screenplay competitions in 2011 (more details in the "Info" section of my Facebook page), so I'm confident it will be a worthy sequel to "Year of the Chick." I just have to write it into "book" form. With a full-time job. No biggie.

Au revoir (I'm Canadian which means sometimes you'll get French from me, hope you can deal with that),

You know a book is going to be awesome when the author has you laughing the first line into the dedications. I downloaded the book after reading her awkward memoirs and it converted me to a full fledged fan. I cant wait for her first novel to finally be released.

I loved this book! It made me laugh many times with its irreverent, down-to-earth humor. I read the Book of Awesome as well, but this one wins, hands down. Thanks for brightening my day.
