Guilty Pleasures is a hilarious collection of 21 essays recounting the irresistibility of (among others): Therapy and Antidepressants, Milking Parents for Cash, Marrying Money, How to Prepare for and Secure the Perfect Daytime Nap, TV, Having Affairs, etc. Eight Midwestern women also satirize their on-and-off addictions to food, eBay, toenail polish, gossiping, buying beads, and baby talk. The authors unlocked the vault to expose what women everywhere really like to do. In writing Guilty Pleasures, these "otherwise good girls" uncovered a global secret sisterhood who enjoy pampering themselves in intensely personal delights.
I could definitely identify with some of the essays, but others bored me and I didn't finish them. The variety of emotions, situations, and life experiences were entertaining and did lead to some introspection. I wouldn't say this is a "must read," but it's an enjoyable book that was perfect to read in bits, as the 42 essays are short.
