Women are Scary by Melanie Dale

I have to admit...when I first requested this book, I thought the title was pretty hilarious. In no way was I prepared to read my new favorite book. "Women Are Scary" by Melanie Dale is a humorous yet serious look at mom friendships and why they are so vital to our lives.

Like the author so eloquently states, women are scary! They're judgmental, critical and it can be incredibly daunting to have a conversation with someone new. But there's also a another part of women that is quite beautiful. It's the part that makes them band together to encourage a friend, or maybe it's just calling you just to see how your day went. And that part is quite vital to the life and well being of every woman out there.

Melanie Dale's writing is easy to read, and quite often I felt like I was sitting down chatting with a good friend. She uses a lot of fun analogies to make her points. One of them was comparing mom friendships to dating, and how to get to first, second, third and fourth base with the moms you hang out with. I found myself laughing out loud throughout most of this book.

I would highly recommend this book to any and all women! I rate it as 5 stars! Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers <http://booklookbloggers.com> book review bloggers program.

Check out Melanie's bio! Even that will give you a good insight to just how funny she really is! ;)

Melanie Dale is a geek on a God-ride, a mini-van mama and total weirdo who stinks at small talk. Her laugh is a combination honk-snort, and it's so bad that people have moved away from her in the movie theater. She adores sci-fi and superheroes and is terrified of Pinterest. She's a lover of Jesus, her hubby Alex and all her kids. Living in the Atlanta area, she blogs at Unexpected.org about motherhood, orphan care, adoption and sometimes poo. She's passionate about the power of people partnering together to make a difference in the world and loves her work with Children's HopeChest on long-term development projects rooted in relationships.
