    I m afraid I ve been too liberal with my stars as of late, and this book was supposed to be first on the receiving list of my new crackdown But the book was too good It earned its five stars, so here I go again, handing out a five star rating like I have them to spare This book was a delight, from beginning to end There s lovable characters, romance, mystery, and hilarity Tess Eliot s world is falling apart when she loses her brother to a family feud, then her boyfriend to another woman, an I m afraid I ve been too liberal with my stars as of late, and this book was supposed to be first on the receiving list of my new crackdown But the book was too good It earned its five stars, so here I go again, handing out a five star rating like I have them to spare This book was a delight, from beginning to end There s lovable characters, romance, mystery, and hilarity Tess Eliot s world is falling apart when she loses her brother to a family feud, then her boyfriend to another woman, and finally her newspaper column So it makes a kind of poetic sense that the one paying project she can find is to to write an etiquette guide for the end of the world commissioned by a doomsday group.The book had just enough ridiculous in it to lighten to mood the favorite local bar is the Scrub a Dub Pub, which used to be a laundrymat but it s never so crazy as to be unbelievable There are quotable lines throughout, and I found myself stopping over and over to highlight a great moment One favorite was Tess response to a gorgeous guy flirting with her, Maybe she was having a long overdue nervous breakdown, and Peter was part of the hallucination If so, she certainly had to hand it to her subconscious What a great way to nuts What was surprising to me, and probably part of why the book was such a good time, was that I was completely and entirely along with Tess for the ride As she digs deeper into this 12 21 12 prophecy I found myself beginning to wonder and worry if there wasn t some truth to it, then as Tess spoke to doubters I was soothed, and by the end I was like Tess A doubter, but not totally confident in that position.Of course with an end of the world book you have to wonder, how on earth is the author going to wrap this up Well she did it well and she did it in a, to me, unexpected way Without spoiling anything, I will say that there was another twist to the story that caught me completely off guard and I loved it Well done, Martinet Bravo I m looking forward to readingof this author I received this ebook as an ARC via NetGalley

of Etiquette for the End of the World, but even though it was really boring, offensive, and schizophrenic, I can t come up with anything to say How do you even start reviewing a book that calls itself a romantic comedy, but isAll About Steve than Annie Hall The romantic twist is so badly telegraphed it hardly counts, and is offensive as hell to boot Plus, halfway through, the author completely forgot she was writing a romantic comedy and turned it into a conspiracy thriller supernatural travel fiction No, I don t know how it s all supposed to work, either As a famous columnist, and one time chapter header writer on an etiquette guide, can you get me out of this Sincerely,Bored of Everlasting Stupid Tropes, Reading Even Very Irritatingly Exasperating Works for Enthusiastic Review, Even Veritably Enraging RomancesDear BEST REVIEWER EVER,When my boyfriend Matt dumped me for my feng shui expert neighbor, I didn t sit at home and moan I went to the bar and ordered laundry themed drinks from my hot, gay BFF And when I lost my job writing this column, sorry this won t get published in some big shot NYC newspaper, by the way, I didn t wallow in self pity I went to the bar and ordered laundry themed drinks from my hot, gay BFF BEST REVIEWER EVER, what I m saying is you need to get out of your slump Fly to Mexico or London or the beach, even if you re flat broke like yours truly The change of scenery, and all the gin, will do you good.If that still doesn t help BEST REVIEWER EVER, we re going to have to get drastic First, steal mail from your 84 year old ex boss Then go visit some end of the world loonies and take a massively profitable writing job, even if it will embroil you in an international cult trying to bring about the apocalypse There, BEST REVIEWER EVER, you ll meet a smoking hot, mysterious Hollywood exec who will sweep you off your feet in a whirlwind romance unlike any you have ever know It s only a shame he s also a pathological liar who will tell you his ex girlfriend stabbed all of his suits, when it was really the cult members, keeping you from getting out while you still can When he stands you up on New Years, causing you to panic and reveal the detective work you ve been doing on the side to one of the sketchiest cult members of all, don t drown your sorrows at the bar oh no wait, yes do that.BEST REVIEWER EVER, now s the part where it gets really tricky Remember that detective work I mentioned Well you are going to research a new idea for the end of the world It will lead you to a librarian who will tell you she found secret plans for a nanobot that could bring down all technology as we know it Being afraid of these plans falling into wrong hands, she won t destroy them She will hide them in an obscure book about beetles The psycho you re working for will be obsessed with beetles His lackey, the one cutting up suits and the one you re going to have to reveal all these plans to, will steal the book for his boss, inadvertently stealing the apocalypse plans too I know this is a lot to take in, so pause for a stiff drink.You may need to take time out for a side plot about your brother stealing your inheritance, I know mine did This will probably result in baby rabies and a psychic salad dressing obsessed aunt You will also start having prophetic dreams about Mexico and earthquakes, just like one of the nutters at the cult This is totally normal and not mass hysteria, but a tiny bit of the supernatural Just to spice life up Anyway BEST REVIEWER EVER, don t bother going to the police, because they think you re nuts Gather up Gay BFF and fly to London to meet with the cult leader in person He ll turn out to be evenmad scientist y than feared, but you ll be able to talk your way out of him killing you You may even get gifts Make sure to steal a vial of his nanobot solution, because you re going to need that to prove you haven t had too many Spin Cycles On the way home, you ll meet that same librarian, who s now a stewardess, and she ll be able to smuggle the vial through customs for you This will leave you free to confess to Gay BFF that you re in love with him He ll confess that he s not really gay his boyfriend is actually his son This is a very advanced maneuver, BEST REVIEWER EVER, don t try this unless you re sure you re in a terrible book You may now advance to your HEA.In the end, the Hollywood Exec will show back up for you to realize he was just a rebound The government will totally let you go incite hysteria while they quietly deal with the wacko cult leader, whose serum didn t even work anyway You ll settle down to being the stepmother of not Gay BFF s kid, while you both make hilarious gay jokes about how could you ever think he was a queen, giiiiirlfriend And then you ll get a book deal out of the whole thing If that s not enough to break through writer s block, BEST REVIEWER EVER, I don t know what is Maybe you ll have to write a parody of something.Now dear, I m off to Mexico to play poker with some colorful stereotypes There s nothing like spending those book advances on expensive, spur of the moment plane tickets 3Tess Etiquette for the End of the World EliotTotally Awesome Relatable Character.Super Not Racist Homophobic Pinkie Swear

    Tess is completely down on her luck, so of course she jumps at the first paying gig she comes across writing a post apocalyptic self help book for a group of doomsday crazies This of course leads to hilarity and slightly amusing adventure This would have been a solid three stars, but the final glimpse from Tess s handbook 12 Rules to Live and Die By was hilarious and lent itself to a solid 3 1 2 Darn you, Goodreads, and your no 1 2 stars policy
