Hello my fellow Bookworms!
I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of “Single Chicas” from the author Sandra C. Lopez. I honestly really enjoyed the short stories. I’m usually not one to read a book full of short stories as I tend to lose interest very quickly but that was not the case with this book. This book contained 13 hilarious shorts that I think everyone would enjoy.
My Big Fat Fake Marriage was one of my favorites, although I so can relate to Always a Price. I think every Hispanic family either has a mechanic in the family or knows a guy. And let me tell you these mechanics gossip more than us women, LOL. Unfortunately for me I have TONS of mechanics in my family and they also all know a guy. The gossip and drama that goes on in their garages. O.M.G!! If you like funny stories then you should definitely pick this book up, You won’t regret it!
Synopsis: Perfection is a Barbie doll, and, unless you’re looking for a guy with a fake smile, a hard head, and no genitalia, then you’re better off NOT being perfect―Single Chicas
Single Chicas is a collection of stories about modern Latinas being in, out, and around the zany hurdles of relationships. One woman receives strange calls from a lonely soul, another seeks advice on how to love herself, and another wakes up in a parallel universe to a man she’s never met. These chicas will make painstaking effort to survive the complexities with humor and grace. Once again, López dazzles audiences with her brilliantly candid craft. Smart, witty, and funny, these stories will explore the true endurance of singlehood.
