Book Review: They Call Me Naughty Lola

I have had this book on my TBR list for basically forever and finally remembered to add it to my wishlist for Christmas this year.  Luke won all sorts of prizes for the books he gave this year and this one was included.  It's a collection of personal ads from the London Review of Books, where the ads themselves are seen as a form of art as much as a solicitation of romance.  For example:

I've divorced better men than you. And worn more expensive shoes than these. So don't think placing this ad is the biggest comedown I've ever had to make. Sensitive F, 34.

It's a collection of personal ads, so I won't review it the way I usually do.  I'll just say that I read it on my plane trip to Chicago and it was the perfect plane book.  I could pick it up and put it down between flights without any problems and it was laugh out loud entertaining.  I think it's the perfect book for a nightstand, an airplane trip, something to read while the baby naps, standing in line, etc.  If you get a chance, pick it up.


  1. sounds like it would be similar to Lover's Dictionary in that you can pick it up easily anytime.
    I'll have to grab a copy!

  2. That looks like a lot of fun. Perhaps the perfect book for me to have in the car during carpool line.
