My Review:

According to author Barbora Knobova, a “Delicious Girl” is daring, enchanting, loving, inspiring, captivating, intriguing, outgoing, unique, and sophisticated. In her book Tales for Delicious Girls, Knobova compiles twenty-five stories from her life and the lives of her friends (all Delicious Girls) and weaves them into funny memoirs with poignant messages on life, relationships, and girl power.

These stories are written in a way that make you feel like you’re chatting with a friend. Memoirs can sometimes leave me with a “so, what?” feeling, but Knobova deftly avoids this by applying the lessons she learned in her interesting and often hilarious experiences to inspire any woman. My most favorite aspect of Knobova’s writing is her constant reinforcement of my most favorite theme for life, which is “Love yourself.” Knobova believes (as do I) that women should believe in their own strength and respect and value themselves. She expresses all of this not in a self-help, huggy-lovey way, but in a way that makes the reader look back on her own less-than wonderful experiences and think, “Well, at least I learned a lot and have a great story to share!”

Whether you read Tales for Delicious Girls in one sitting, like I did, or savor the stories in little snack-like bites for a pick me up (like I intended to!), you’ll be left feeling great about yourself and reminiscing about the times you proved to yourself that you are a Delicious Girl!

I received Tales for Delicious Girls from the publisher for review, and the above opinions are my own. No other compensation, other than a few laughs, was received.
