#ComedyBookWeek Review of Ana Spoke's Shizzle, Inc.

And, now, for my final #ComedyBookWeek post, my review of Ana Spoke's Shizzle, Inc. This book is a hilarious, roller-coaster, screwball comedy that moves at a breakneck pace. It’s funny, it’s charming, it’s total craziness.

I loved it.

Isla Maxwell is a new graduate looking for a new job. She’s also the quintessential  chaos magnet. The crazy is drawn to her like a moth to a flame. She wakes up after an epic night on the town with a raging hangover, a ransacked house (someone burglarized her place while she slept), and empty wardrobe, and a few minutes before she’s due for a job interview. She makes a dress out of curtains, puts on her lipstick, and lands a coveted personal assistant position with an eccentric billionaire at Sizzle, Inc.

That’s when things start to get weird.

Her boss is wacko and her job description is…shall we say flexible? Her family is batshit. Her friends try to impose some order, but the indefatigable entropic force that is Isla Maxwell cannot be contained.  Things inevitably go from outrageously bad to incredibly worse.  Through it al, Isla is charming, funny, and relentlessly optimistic. She reminds me of a millennial Mary Poppins, completely unfazed by all the craziness around her.

Overall, this was a funny, entertaining read with a charming protagonist.

Well, that's it for #ComedyBookWeek I hope you had as much fun as I did. I loved all of these books, and I enjoyed sharing them (and their amazing authors) with you. Have a great weekend, guys.
