Well, I'm ahead of the curve on this one because I am currently listening to the audio of A Year in the Merde (the last word being French for S**t).
Looking at my TBR the only other one that pops out is Hell Has No Fury - a collection of women's letters at the end of an affair.
A Year In the Merde* is one of my favourite books/series*! I read that during breaks and before class first year of school a few years ago and had to fight from laughing aloud. For me, the humour came in reading instances of attitudes or behavior that is like my mom or something my mother told me about France and the people. Seeing it written out amused me, like, "Oh my gosh, they really do do that! You weren't just telling me lies," or "you do that all the time!" Love Stephen's books, the only one I've been unable to get has been 1000 Years of Annoying the French.
Going to have to look at my tentative reading list for June and see if any qualify. Off to hunt...
I already know one book that I am going to purchase for the kindle to read since it is one I have wanted to read the last few months and it fits. Good Christian B*tches by Kim Gatlin. I will have to see if I have any others on my shelves that contains one of these words :-D
I have the ultimate book for this challenge-title will be kept under wraps till I start, to add to the bleeping suspense.
I have noooo idea what I will pick yet lol.
Think I'm going to read Where the Hell is Matt?: Dancing Badly Around the World by Matt Harding. I have it on my Kindle.
This is not as easy as it might seem! I did find Damn The Luck by Ken Smith and Run Like Hell by Elena Andrews. We'll see if I get to them both. I writing up my June reading list now, and I have a feeling it is long.
Erika--I had Run Like Hell by Elena Andrews as well. I also had Horror and Crap: 11 Short Works by Joshua Scribner and Out, Damned Spot by Dan Dillard. I always try to use the freebies that I've downloaded for these challenges--so far so good. :)
Me too, Bev. If I don't use the freebies for a challange, I'm not sure I'll ever get to them!
First one that popped in my head was Skinny Bitch, which I think might be a cookbook? I'm a big fan of the f*ck word, so this is awesome! What inspired it? Was it that article that got you thinking, or did something else inspire it? (I haven't been around much lately so maybe this has been discussed already?)
What inspired it? Deb & I were throwing around ideas for challenges and Deb pointed out the article...the rest is history.
I found a few possibilities in the library catalog; so far I'm thinking about either Hell Creek, Montana or Rimbaud's A Season in Hell, either of which would fit into my current projects.
I found Hell to Pay by Wendy Corsi Staub, so guess that will be the one I read. I had forgotten I had it.
I think someone got me "The Little Book of Complete Bollocks" as a secret santa present once.
Time to dig that one out.
I found, The Eighties: A Bitchen Time To Be a Teenager! by Tom Harvey. Of course I had to download it!
Started this one last night.
Finished. Don't bother reading this one.
Probably not that great because the best time to be a teen was in the 70's - LOL!
You got that right, Raine!
I HATED the fashions of the 70's. I am still traumatized by the pair of plaid bell-bottoms my mom made me wear.
Your kidding! Everybody wore them!
Not me! I hated plaid. Until I got older...now I can only tolerate it on flannel shirts.
Just downloaded Run Like Hell by Elena Andrews. Sounds like a good read.
Keeping it civil, and véry British: For crying out loud! by Jeremy Clarkson
Let me know how it is! I love Jeremy Clarkson!
@Leah, if you love Clarkson, this is definitly worth reading. While reading this, you can almost HEAR Jeremy saying it, in that highly outraged tone of his. As if people do certain things, just to annoy him!
For this challenge I've found:
A WEDDING IN HELL - Charles Simac LOVE WINS: A Book About Heaven, Hell, & the Fate of Every Person Who Has Ever Lived - Rob BellA PEN WARMED-UP IN HELL: Mark Twain in Protest - Frederick Anderson, editorCONFESSIONS OF A PRAIRIE BITCH: How I Survived Nellie Oleson and Learned to Love Being Hated Alison Arngrim
*How do you put a line through it?*
the word "strike" inside of the "<" ">".
And I SOOO hated Nellie Olsen, too.
Didn't she seem like a caricature of a spiteful, spoiled brat though? Sometimes I thought they went a little overboard with her character. The little girl we loved to hate.
Well sure but towards the end of the series all the characters were that way to me.
True. Anyway, I should be able to pick up my copy at the library next week. :o)
June Challenge Completed! The Nellie Oleson book was perfect for this challenge, because not only was there a cuss word in the title, but even wickeder ones employed with finesse throughout the text. :o)
hello i am tesing the line thing
Ok for this challenge I read "F*ck Yes!" by Wing F Fing. Yes Shelfarians I read the asterisk-less version.
How was it? :-)
Effing awesome, I hope
NO! It could be the worst book I have read this year. It was effing awful, to paraphrase a dear friend.
I finally finished Hell to Pay by Wendy Corsi Staub. I had read the other two books of this trilogy. Those seemed to keep my interest better. At least there was a conclusion. I don't know if there will be more books with these characters or not, but I don't think I'll read any others.
I am finishing up:
Bitter is the New Black: Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered, SMART-ASS or Why You Should Never Carry a Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office by Jen Lancaster
