Publisher's Description

There is nothing as precious in life as a friend who knows you and loves you in spite of yourself. Yet over the last couple of decades, we’ve substituted the joy of real friendship with cheap imitations. We settle for “community” on Facebook and Twitter and a series of text messages that allow us to communicate with someone without the commitment. We like each other’s beautifully filtered photos on Instagram and delude ourselves into believing we have a community. But real friendship requires effort. It’s showing up, laughing loud, and crying hard. It’s forgiving and loving and giving the benefit of the doubt. It’s making a casserole, doing a carpool pickup, and making sure she knows those cute shoes are 50 percent off. Written in the same comedic style as the New York Times bestsellers Sparkly Green Earrings and The Antelope in the Living Room, Nobody’s Cuter than You is a laugh-out-loud look at the special bond that exists between friends and a poignant celebration of all the extraordinary people God had the good sense to bring into our lives at exactly the right moments. From the friendships we develop over a lifetime to the ones that wounded us and the ones that taught us to love better, Melanie Shankle reveals the influence our friends have on who we were, who we are, and who we will become. And on a day when our jeans feel too tight, our chins have decided to embrace hormone-related acne reminiscent of our teen years, and our kids have tested the limits of our sanity, they are the ones who will look at us and say, “Nobody’s cuter than you!”

    Life long friendships are not something you hear a lot about any more, in her memoir "Nobody's Cuter Than You" Melanie shares about her friendships formed during college. I enjoy reading a variety of books, I was surprised that I found myself struggling to get into this book. There are moments of funny, sad, and depth of life as Melanie shares her life story with us. One reason I think I struggled with getting into it at first is that my life is vastly different than hers which made it hard for me to relate. The other reason is that I don't have a lot of life long friendships as she describes; yet if we are all honest it is something that we all want to have characterize our own story.

    Melanie's writing is humorous and easy to read; I was left feeling like I was having coffee with her and listening to her describe what life had been and is like. Through the words on the page you see communicated real life, the ups and downs, sorrows and joys. You are given the privilege of walking along side her as she grows up, goes to college, gets married, and has a family. At the end of reading the memoir, I was left to ponder my friendships and take account. A mix of depth and humor this is a book that will leave you laughing and thinking.

    Thank you to Tyndale Publishing for my copy of the book to review in exchange for my opinion of the book.

    In the fullness of life lately...with all the pending changes...you know what I needed? {Besides coffee, of course...} Some fun, light-hearted reading. Enter: "Nobody's Cuter Than You"...the latest memoir by Melanie Shankle.

    I read Melanie's first book, "Sparkly Green Earrings", right after my husband and I were married, and while it was a book about motherhood and I'm not a mom, I found myself nodding and underlining and laughing hysterically at her stories. {The one about her then-very-young daughter telling her she might want to do something about trimming up her facial hair stuck in my brain and still makes me giggle. I'm sure she'd be relieved to know THAT is the story I regularly conjure up out of all of them.}

    "Nobody's Cuter Than You" is a memoir about friendship, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting {through her stories} the friends who shaped her into the woman she is today. From Lindsay Letterman, the first friend she ever remembers meeting in kindergarten, to her beloved Gulley, the best friend she met in college and kept for life, Melanie let me peek into the lives of the people who loved her and the things that formed, grew, and sometimes tested their friendships. She also reminded me of why face-to-face friendships cannot possibly be replaced by FaceTime friendships, and her words inspired in me the desire to return to those in-person investments the world seems to have pushed away.

    Her words are wise, including reminders that "friendships are fragile and we need to handle them with respect and reverence," and her stories are hilarious. {You'll want to especially find the story in which Melanie and a prospective employer happen upon best-friend-Gulley, sawing logs on a couch in a hospital lobby.}

    Melanie made me think {with fondness} about the friendships in my life, past and present, and she reminded me that "having your soul knit to another isn't for the faint of heart." But she also reminded me why it's the craving of my soul.

    Heaps of wit and a good measure of wisdom is what I found printed on these pages. I'm glad I read it - especially right now.

    This is a memoir about friendship, written by blogger Melanie Shankle, who describes her friendships over the years, particularly with a woman named Gulley. I thought the book was amusing and thought provoking.

    This is Melanie Shankle's book and I can join the fans group and agree this third book of hers is better than the first two.

    Who will like this book? Definitely those who have friends, duh! Also those who are children of the 80s and enjoy some good 80s references, those who take no offense in sarcasm and can appreciate a sarcastic joke. I laughed a lot while reading this book. I would read my book and suddenly come to a line that made me burst into laughing, and by the time I reached the end of the sentence I would burst into laughter at least once more. Then I would read that sentence again because it was too good to get over it that quickly.

    What's the book all about? Melanie's friends. It's mostly about her best friend of almost 25 years, Gulley, as she calls her. The stories in the book cover Melanie's important friendships over the years, starting from friends in the cul-de-sac, primary school, junior school, high school, and all the way to college and life after college. The book makes you want to read more and more. The friendship Melanie and Gulley have is something that I am sure all people want, and I absolutely loved reading their story. Those who have "known" Melanie's friends from reading the blog will enjoy a more behind the scenes look at their stories.

    I keep saying that the authors whose books I have read from the moment they released their first book keep getting better and better. This is the case with Melanie Shankle. This book really is better, and I am sure the next one will be even better. I am positive that if she'd read this she'd think "OK, right, no pressure." with a sarcastic tone. There is a reason why her blog is in my feed and her books in my library, and this book on friendship confirmed that reading her words is a good thing to do indeed.

    Sometimes best friends are just for a season, and occasionally they are forever. I have had so many dear friends at one point or another I would have called my best friend. (This would be the reason I had SEVEN bridesmaids and TWO maids of honor stand with me on my wedding day.) Author Melanie Shankles new book Nobodys Cuter Than You reminded me of all of the precious women in my life both past and present for whom I am forever grateful.

    Oddly enough, Nobodys Cuter Than You is the second memoir I have read in the last few months. I read Sophie Hudsons memoir Home Is Where My People Are earlier this year. Would you believe both Melanie Shankle (BigMama) and Sophie Hudson (BooMama) are blog contributors to The Pioneer Woman blog? Small world eh? And you know what? I loved both books. I think Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman) has fantastic taste in bloggers!

    I read Nobodys Cuter Than You in just a few short hours. My family and I were on a road trip and I found myself constantly reading my husband paragraphs I found hilarious. So basically, he read the book along with me. Even though this book is about the friendships Melanie experienced in her life, I saw my own life in her words. I think that is why this memoir is so wonderful. As I turned the pages, I remembered friends I havent thought about much in the last few years. At one point or another I would have counted each one as my dearest friend. I finished the book with heart of gratitude for the many women who have become more than friends.

    I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its publisher in exchange for an honest review. I have not been compensated and all opinions are my own.
