I received this book for free as part of an Instagram tour (TLC Book Tours specifically) I did to promote the book.
I always love a good coffee table book and this one was perfect!
This book is a spoof on 80’s pulp love magazines. I loved the whole vibe of it. The photographs were amazing. The aesthetic was very retro Los Angeles meets millennial women.
I loved the antidotes that the author shared. Some of them were incredibly funny, like the first one, “George from the Beach!” Others were really insightful and relatable like “15 Reasons Why I Wore a Dress Like This” and “Ruby, Ruby, Ruby!”
The book also has some great one liners that accompany some of the pictures. My personal favorites were, “I wish I was full of donuts instead of anxiety” (pg. 72) and “One day we’ll look back on this period of unemployment and wish we had called it FREEDOM (pg. 2).
To complete the pulp love magazine experience, there’s a crossword puzzle, recipes, and horoscopes. If that wasn’t enough, there are even paper dolls included that depict women in various situations like new relationship and recently single. I thought the dolls were a very clever and fun touch.
Overall, this is the perfect coffee table book or gift for millennial women who love being in love.
