10 Important Qualities Of a Good Man - What Women Really Want in a Man
When I saw this book at the library I was attracted to it by the vintage cover art, and the front flap sounded pretty funny. Overall I enjoyed the book, if I did have to suspend my disbelief at times about all the boyfriends Amelia'd had over the years and what they'd become. It felt a lot like Sex and the City meets Dublin, Ireland, right down to when Amelia strikes a refrain that echoes a Charlotte York line almost verbatim: "I've been dating since I was fifteen.
I'm exhausted! Where is he? Mar 01, Sirena rated it liked it. Could barely get thru it. I was hoping I might learn why I'm still single haha. All my ex's except 3 are unmarried or not in happy relationships so clearly I'm not the problem. I didn't think Amelia was the problem either. Ending could've been better.

You Are Enough: If You Think You Need A Man, You Need To Be Single
But the stories are hilarious and so sad at the same time. I can actually see these scenarios happen too. How they all come together for each other and help through this muddled life we all live. The story ends with some sort of empowerment for her which I was glad to see for her. Read this in English! It was a very nice holiday read, read most of in on the train ride to Tampere, it was so nice to dive into the book and read in peace! It was about Amelia who is still single at 37, and desperate to get married.

I hope so! But something is missing from her life. What is that you say? A husband! This is another enjoyable read from Ms Carroll. Feb 25, Ema rated it really liked it. Thankfully, it ends with her being strong enough to stand on her own two feet with the support of her friends, and that was very lovely.
gentechire.tk Aug 04, Liz Erdmann rated it it was ok. Don't get me started on all the spelling and grammatical issues. But really, it was just poor and hasty editing. She must have been pushed for a deadline between the slapdash ending of the book and the editing. OMG, this book is so generic that I had read it before and didn't even realize it until Goodreads pointed that fact out to me, as I was getting ready to write this review.
It didn't even feel familiar enough as I read it that I noticed. Nov 05, Deepa Duraisamy rated it did not like it. Save your time.

Nov 30, Margaret rated it liked it. Even though this one has similarities r best friends, one especially sweet, one especially caustic, one looking for the right guy, and one over the top gay guy friend , a career in television, and the dreaded text slang, what pushed this book up to three stars was the ending.
Not the predictable ending I was expecting but very satisfying. Thirty-seven year old Amelia has had several relationships and her latest one of three years looked to be the one that would take her to the alter, but when her guy says he doesn't want to be married to her or anyone else and it is time to cut loose, Amelia decides it is time to make a change.

How to Find a Husband over the Age of Thirty-Five is a night course offered by a well-seasoned, saucy woman who guarantees that those who stick with the course will end up happily married. The catch is that the course assignments must be followed to the letter, and one of those is to contact every man she ever dated and find out just why the relationship failed in order to stop repeating the same mistakes which inevitably lead to more failed relationships.
That was funny to a point but it did drag on. Amelia went all the way back to high school to examine her men and came up with a list of 10 to contact. Finding out that the guys she "loved" back then were now a monk, a cheating husband, a mental patient Enter her TV boss. And here is where I exit the summary.
I'm glad I gave Carroll a second chance, but I would like to read something that brings in some new personalities in the characters. I have already met the four best friends and the boss Sep 06, Melinda rated it it was ok Shelves: fiction , could-be-better , romance , chick-lit.
