    “The truth is that women are supposed to be everything to everyone. And guess what? That’s impossible. We’re expected to be continually kind to our fellow women, caring toward children, respectful of the elderly, supportive of our coworkers-while simultaneously making every dude around us super horny. Oh and we should always stand up for ourselves, while also being likable.” This book is about empowering women, being confident and believi...

    I loved this book! Not a page went by where I didn't laugh! I am still laughing over the section "When and How to Dump a Man via Text." I'm totally going to use the fried shrimp tactic. I recommend this book for any woman who needs a kick in her self esteem and any woman stuck out in the dating world. It could also be beneficial to some of you guys out there who might need a hand understanding us females. Iliza's confidence is infectious. Great r...

    As a note, a review copy of this novel was provided on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinion in any way. Thank you! Review also posted here.Ah! I'm disappointed in myself too for not finishing this bad boy. I really wanted to like this one! Sometimes, it's like comedy doesn't translate to page easily, for me, and while I enjoy Iliza Shlesinger's humor (somewhere between casually and a fan) Girl Logic just did...

    This book sounds like the perfect girls night out! You have the weird friend, the hot one who gets attention, the voice of reason, the cray cray one and finally the one who let's it all out. The one who you always love but a tiny bone in you knows that if you are playing russian roulette you'd never call her because the girl speaks truth!Borrowed blurb: "Girl Logic" is Iliza's term for the way women obsess over details and situations that men don...

    I loved the sound of Shlesinger's part memoir, part humorous take on life. With a funny collection of essays and observations on women's approach to many aspects of life, I thought this would be a light-hearted read that I could nod along to. 'Girl Logic' refers to the logic that us women have, where we obsess over tiny details in every situation, mostly about things that men might not necessarily notice. Now I can look over the fact that Shlesin...

    A review copy of this novel was provided on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinion in any way. Thank you!I don't really know what I was expecting from this book which is part memoir, part advice book.. I've never seen Iliza Shlesinger's stand up before but I heard her featured on the 2 Dope Queens podcast, which I love, and I really liked her. When they mentioned she had a book coming out, I was excited to rea...

    I myself have never fallen into the Girl Logic fallacy that some clothing may be "too tight for pizza." Thst said, I see a few facets of my slightly younger self in Iliza Schlesinger's descriptions. I've seen her stand up specials so I'm familiar with the Party Goblin and the Guys' Girl bits. There's a lot to unpack here if you're taking an intersectional reading but if you're twenty two and trying to figure your shit out, this book has some nugg...
  • Kate Klassa
    Girl Logic - an innate female trait that Iliza describes as the way women question and obsess over everything in the world that men don't necessarily notice. Iliza's book is less of a memoir and more of an exploration of how GL manifests itself in everyday situations while using her own life to back up her points. It's a very funny book with some hilarious anecdotes and words of wisdom, but I was hoping for something a little less generalised (co...

    3.5 Stars I really enjoyed this book.Before reading this book I hadn't heard of Iliza Shlesinger but now I feel like I know everything about her. This entire book was filled with laughs and so much truth. It was a very easy book to read and I enjoyed it from start to finish although I found it started a bit slower than i would have liked. Im really looking forward to watching some of Iliza's live stand up now. If your after a book thats a good li...

    3.5 stars. I have watched her stand up, and this reminded me an awful lot of that. There is some strong language content that readers should be aware of also. I thought parts of the book was funny and interesting but had a hard time really get into it and wanting to finish it. Thank you NetGalley and Iliza Shlesinger for allowing me to read this book and write a honest review.

    I enjoyed this a lot. Contrary to what some people might say, you definitely don't have to already be a fan of Ilza's stand up to enjoy this. I find her supremely relatable in a best-girlfriend kind of way.I do feel like the book got better as it went on -- especially when she spoke about past experiences that weren't about hookups. Her insight to being the only woman on tour during 'Last Comic Standing' was emotional and raw...and familiar for a...

    "Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity" by comedian Iliza Shlesinger contains funny yet spot on observations on what it means to be an American woman. Her memoir approach to the subject lets the reader come to know her as well as understand her theory of "Girl Logic". I enjoyed Mayim Bialik's forward as she introduces both Iliza and the idea of how the female mind works in a much different way than the male brain. The book finds numerous humor...
